The intimate detail and exquisite beauty of fishes and their environment has, for a number of years, been the subject of Curtis Atwater's artistic endeavors. His work attempts to convey a sense of action and drama in an underwater world.

Curtis is an avid fisherman who studies his subjects first hand. Most ideas originate from actual experiences on the water. Reference material is gained through photography of fish species above and below water. In spring before the algae blooms, he tramps the shallows of streams and lakes. Later when the water warms a little, he snorkels many lakes and rivers throughout the province of Ontario. He has travelled across Canada from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland in a quest to catch and study fish species in their natural environment. He will do whatever it takes to find those fish whether it is fishing for Chinook salmon and halibut off Vancouver Island, tarpon fishing in Cuba, Atlantic salmon fishing in New Brunswick, Muskie fishing in Northwestern Ontario, Lake trout fishing in the Yukon Territories, Pike fishing in Northern Saskatchewan, Speckled trout fishing in Labrador, or saltwater fishing in the Caribbean sea. It seems to be as much fun catching and studying fish as it is painting them in a believable underwater scene.
