Nick Mayer

Illustrative Prints of Fish and Aquatic Life

Nick Mayer is an award-winning nature illustrator whose style embraces the natural beauty of fish and other marine life with a unique scientific perspective. He is a former marine biologist and a lifelong fly-fishing addict.  A skin of his teeth survival falling overboard off a commercial fishing vessel into the Bering Sea followed by a near float plane crash in Northern Labrador inspired Nick to pursue his true calling as an artist.  


Painting is his passion and he has developed a celebrated touch.  He is the illustrator of four books:  Catalina Island Dive Buddies written by IGFA fishing historian Mike Rivkin (Silverfish Press, 2013), Wild Oceans Coloring by Nick Mayer (Fox Chapel Publishing, 2016), An Angler’s Journal by Nick Mayer (Fox Chapel Publishing, 2019) and Fish ABCs by Nick Mayer (2021).  His work and licensed products can be seen in galleries and stores in over 30 countries around the globe.
