Painting on clear resin
It is believed having knowledge of the natural energies in life can bring good fortune and harmony to a person, hence the Koi ﬁsh are the symbol of good fortune, over all of Asia.
As ﬁsh seem to bring good energy I decided to harness that in my art work, developing a technique of painting Koi ﬁsh in layers between clear resin, to create a life like three dimensional image of a gold ﬁsh swimming in water.This journey took many years to develop, which now brings you this collective of work.
