“Troutfin Studio features unique watercolor paintings and photography of trout, salmon, and steelhead by local artist Mark Jessop. Mark grew up in Colorado and began fishing with his dad when he was 6 years old. He quickly fell in love with rushing rivers, nature, and the beauty of wild trout. By early adolescence, he had become a die-hard fly fisherman. Fly fishing combined two of his passions; Art and Science, into one perfect sport.
In the winter of 2004, while chasing steelhead on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, he discovered watercolor as a way of expressing his love for fish and fly fishing. Mark combines vivid colors and intricate details to showcase the natural beauty of each fish he paints. His greatest inspiration comes from a day on the river with friends.”
