About Papier Maché Fish

This fishy business all started about 25 years ago. I’ve always enjoyed messing with paints, drawing etc,  especially when it overlaps with craft so the fish sort of evolved from fiddling about with papier maché. 

Living in Cornwall as I was for most of my life, I suppose the fish theme was inevitable.  I began by making imaginative fish, but gradually the demand for the realistic ones grew, so now I make them exclusively, despite moving to Dorset in 2003.

They are basically constructed of cardboard, MDF, newspaper and hours of work!  They’re all designed to hang on a wall.
