Martin Simpson


Artist and keen angler Martin Simpson's trout portraits combine his love of fishing in New Zealand with his art. Simpson writes that "I strive to create the finest trophy portraits in the world, works which are not only unique and collectable but are a beautiful reminder of the angler’s unforgettable accomplishment. My portraits are life-size and anatomically accurate down to the smallest detail, including every scale and fin ray". Simpson's artwork features in many of NZ's leading fishing lodges. Martin's highly detailed prints of Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout were some of the most superbly printed images that we have ever seen, been described by customers as "the best trout portrait in world." Both of the first two prints have now sold out, however the artist is working on two new images that will be available some time in 2015.
