Watching the colorful "Koi Fish" is very soothing to one's soul.
I like watching the fish splash and swim about; swim to
the top of the pond with their mouths wide open, wanting to be fed.
My inspiration for the artwork I create comes from nature itself.
As I sat in silence, watching, I realize we are all a part of nature, part of
something larger than ourselves. We must be responsible;
for when we ruin nature, we ruin ourselves.

In Japanese culture the koi fish represents strength and perseverance. It is also called
the "warrior's" fish and is sometimes associated with masculinity.
Chinese and Korean tradition associate the "Koi Fish" with friendship and love.
Japanese rice farmers bred the fish for centuries to have color variations they are
know for today.
