Hand-painted, rustic fish carvings and marine art by Steve Rice

"Thank you again for the amazing work you did for the species awards and the auction - truly unique and beautiful. It shows how much attention to detail you have and care you take on every piece. They all honor the species and the winners."

Wesley Locke, Tournament Director

Herman Lucerne Memorial Backcountry Championship

More and more, tournament directors are searching for unique awards for their anglers and captains, along with appreciation gifts for tournament sponsors. I love working with folks to create pieces that not only honor the win or participation, but which also become treasured mementos. Whether it's inshore, offshore, or freshwater, we can collaborate to create one-of-a-kind awards and gifts that will leave your participants with huge smiles and great memories.

Carved wall hangings, free-standing carvings or prints in hand-painted frames all make great awards. As far as design goes, we're limited only by imagination. And I'm always happy to work within a budget. I can usually accommodate tight timelines, too.

Have a cool idea for something? Let's chat about it. Creating each work from scratch ensures that no two are ever the same, and each becomes even more valuable to the recipient.

Here'a a sampling of some of the tournaments for which I've created awards:

  • Bacardi Rum Billfish Tournament
  • Bimini Small B.O.A.T.
  • Cuda Bowl (Top Release Captain | Top Release Angler, Fly & Spin Divisions, 2023; Top Female Angler and Guide to Top Female, 2024)
  • Herman Lucerne Memorial Backcountry Championship 
  • Islamorada Fall All Tackle Bonefish & Permit Championship (Captain & Angler Grand Champion Awards, 2023)

So if you're looking for a unique, hand-made marine art to use as awards in your tournament, please drop me a line and let's talk!
