Fishing Artworks - Fine Fishing Art by Jim Roszel

About Jim Roszel
Since the age of four, Jim Roszel spent summers at his grandparent’s cottage on Harsens Island fishing the North Channel of the St. Clair River.

Catching many perch, rock bass, smallmouth and the occasional walleye from their dock, he loved fishing immediately.

Jim's artistic talent showed at an early age. He was encouraged to develop his skills through the study of Art at Michigan State University. After college Jim moved to Boston to paint and learn art conservation apprenticing with, Mark Sirdevan, a respected conservator.

After a number of years of apprenticeship, Jim opened The Oil Painting Conservation Studio commissioning projects for Boston College, Brown University, Cohasset Historical Society, Whistler Museum, Groton Historical Society, Town of Norwood, prominent galleries in Boston, and art collectors nationwide. Jim benefited from the close-up contact with great artwork by Edwin Lord Weeks, Frederic Church, Joseph DeCamp, Abbott Fuller Graves, Francis Augustus Silvia, Thomas Cole, Earnest Lawson, and Frank Benson. The experience taught Jim how to construct a painting that will last for generations.

Finding his true calling, Jim Roszel combined his passion for fly fishing and painting, resulting in the inspiration and creation of Fishing Artworks. Jim currently fishes the waters of Massachusetts with his family and friends.

From Jim
Dear Fellow Angler and Art Collector,

When you love fishing as much as I do, it becomes an art form.

Fishing builds memories fostered by estuaries, bays and inlets, lakes and streams. Of sharing a day with friends and family, and the pride of your first trophy fish. Those fond memories are what inspired me to express my love for fishing as works of art.

It’s my greatest pleasure to help you embrace your love of fishing and your fondest fishing memories in a custom painting. Whether you are an inland freshwater angler or an offshore expert in the deep oceans, I can create a portrait of any fish. Beginning from a mere photograph of your trophy tuna, marlin, swordfish, dorado, bass, salmon, or trout can become a prized and personal work of art.

A Fish Portrait commands attention in any space and proudly displays your fish-of-a-lifetime. The brilliant colors and live presence of a freshly landed trophy fish are not easily captured in taxidermy or photography. By featuring your prize catch in a life-size custom oil painting , you can relive the excitement of the encounter and enjoy these beautiful creatures for generations to come.

Every watercolor or oil painting has the power to bring the spirit of fishing to your life and add beauty and character to decorate your home or business. Respected for generations, your custom painting will truly be valued as fine art.
