Backstory – I grew up with a dad who was a Fisherman. He would come home from his trips with a cooler full of sparkling trout. I was mesmerized by the beautify of their iridescent colours and spots, the cherry stripe running down the side of the rainbow trout. He would prepare them and fry them with butter in a wrought iron pan. As I grew up, I learned more about these iconic Canadian fish and started to use them frequently in my artwork. As a symbol, they represent hope, love and community.
