Gyotaku Artist
Kathy Worden 

Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s. 

This form of nature printing may have been used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an art form of its own. 

Using this printing technique, Seaside Gallery & Goods Artist, Kathy Worden, captures the beauty of sea life from our own Newport Beach, California waters.   Inspired by seeing a gyotaku print of a friend's award winning tuna hanging in their home, Kathy became intrigued with learning the art of gyotaku. She enjoys making impressions of sea life and other inspirations from nature.  Her beautiful gyotaku art work can be purchased at Seaside Gallery and is the perfect compliment to any coastal home or gift for that fish lover in your life.
