Description I love traditional Japanese artwork. I recently studied the symbology of the Koi Fish in their culture and found that if you draw or tattoo a Koi swimming downstream, it signifies defeat. So, I decided to draw one upstream to signify victory.
Taresa Smith, Bradenton, FL Member Since August 2010 Artist Statement I am a custom artist dealing mostly in tattoo designs. I love traditional Japanese art and Fantasy art. I use pencil or pastel chalks to create my art, though you will catch me with a brush in hand on occasion.
Any questions or requests feel free to ask me!
