Indo Pacific Permit I, Trachinotus blochii
How the Permit got its name is a mystery, but its Latin name refers to one of the fathers of fish illustration & taxonomy, Marcus Bloch. The Indo Permit is found from the Indian Ocean to the Central Pacific including the Seychelles. Its mirror-like coloration reflects its surroundings serving as camouflage.

My mission as an artist is to inspire an appreciation for and curiosity about nature and its creatures by communicating the aesthetic beauty of this planet’s amazing creatures as they really are.
It is my hope that this appreciation will result in acts of empathy & stewardship towards these incredible creatures portrayed in my paintings.
