When you call them Koi, it sounds so fancy. If you were to refer to them as ornamental carp – it just looses all glamor.  So we will stick with Koi. In schools, pairs, or alone they are looked upon as a object of beauty. From the yellows, whites, blacks, and oranges the colors mix and meld to unique works of natural art. Here are some of our takes on Koi for your viewing pleasure.

Technology – a wonderful thing. With the invention of microchips, circuit boards, and digital data – artistry took a high-tech step to a new realm. It opened creative doors with another way to express ones artistic nature. Who knows what will be the next outlet for our creativity – anyone care to guess?
