Gold River Sunrise

This piece was inspired by the bold war paint colors found on the rainbow trout gill plate. Tranquil moment after catching this beautiful fish and gently releasing it back into its home water: feeling like you’re watching a beautiful sunrise to sunset moment. Vancouver Island is home to some fantastic river and lake fly fishing. Anglers from around the world travel to the island’s fruitful waters to catch rainbow trout in abundance. Original reference photo courtesy of fly fishing guide and author Phil Tereyla, Colorado.

Shauna was born into a big fishing family in Port Alberni BC. After her mother Carolyn was diagnosed with cancer and unable to continue fishing, Shauna merged her passions of fishing and art to bring fish to her mother. Shauna believes in painting trophies rather than taxidermy, saving fish to spawn, grow and be caught again.
