Located in Truro, MA, shinglefish cape cod is the art baby of Nicole Gelinas.
Industry made from cottages
shinglefish was born in the summer of 2018 in mind only and then design. In 2 weeks it went from a brainchild to physical form with the spark of inspiration, the prompt of a few instagram admirers and a local festival invitation. shinglefish is growing every day with a focus on fun, inspiration and playfulness.
Our unique and fun art pieces are made from cedar shingles and driftwood that have been salted and weathered for years on the sides of cottages and local beaches.
Hang individually or collect a whole school! Have fun and enjoy.
say hello to shingles. strip nails. prep with paint. let dry. paint fish. let dry. spray with sealer. let dry. sign back. sticker back. kiss fish. wrap fish. say goodbye to fish.
Each shinglefish is unique. The shingle itself comes as I get them, thinner on one side. Then, I paint most shingles with a partially whitewashed or white background. You can pick a few colors that will blend with the stroke of the palette knife and brush. Next, they are laid out in the sun to dry just like salted cod-but don’t eat this one.
Even though you can not eat it, each shinglefish will however sustain you as each piece is made to bring joy, fun and whimsy in it’s rustic simplicity. For custom orders please email Nicole at firstname.lastname@example.org, PM on fb or DM on Instagram.
