Stephen Palmer was born and raised by artists, and one of his earliest memories is being with his mom while she painted the ocean.

Even though over the years he has worked with a variety of materials and inspirations, Palmer recently came back to the ocean in the form of humorous mixed media fish. Most fish start with a vintage crutch or paddle, are given a tail, fins and teeth, and then filled with antique items and found objects before they are wired.

Because Palmer is an educator, he hopes people will see the connection between his use of things that might otherwise be discarded and the pollution of our waterways. An annual percentage of the sale of Steve’s fish helps support environmental groups.
