SIMPLY THE BEST - Florida-inspired fish art perfect gifts for fishermen and enhancements for coastal home decor.
Each piece is hand-made by the artist. Since the work is a collaboration between the artist and the materials, every rendering is unique...making for distinctive coastal home décor.
The work is not limited to the artist's catalog; requests for custom work are encouraged. The primary subject matter is Florida salt water game fish.
Doc’s Island Unique Fish Wall Art is the only style of its kind locally called “fish camp style”; creative, organic, and comfortably mono-chromatic.
Imagine how such wooden fish carvings would look as coastal décor in the home, beach house, yacht salon, office, restaurant, bar, or clubhouse. These can also lend themselves to be gifts for fishermen, award trophies for tournaments, and other such salt life competitions. Renderings of a catch can be created from a good photograph and a few dimensions and will last a lifetime.
Interior Designers and commercial contractors may consider Doc’s Island for professional, unique, and custom wall art décor for their accounts.
All work is done solely by the artist, with American materials, in his “studio” just over the ditch (The Intracoastal Waterway). John “Doc” Fabiano has been a Jacksonville, Florida resident since 1978 and an artist, writer, and cook for most of his life. Growing up in a maritime community and settling in the lower latitudes, Doc has caught, cooked, and consumed or caught and released many of his subjects.
The present work is the latest step in a progression that began some years ago when Doc began teaching autistic students Gyotaku wall art as a tactile experience.
