Pescado Y Amor was started on a warm summer day in Sayulita, Mexico. Where we lived and played for six months fine tuning our ideas and collaborating our artistic imaginations. Pescado Y Amor combines our love of Mexico, love of the beach, and love of life and art. We now reside in Oak Island, North Carolina, where we work along side each other creating art.
