Welcome to shinglefish cape cod where we make freehand-painted fish on Cape Cod weathered cedar shingles, upcycled art.

Fish symbolize the energy of water, health, wealth and continuous abundance in feng shui as well as other cultural practices and in many stages of human history from Greek and Roman mythology right through to current modern society.

Fish have been known to also symbolize ideas and energy related to freedom, transformation, wisdom, fertility, unity, joy, and liberation from the confines of societal expectation.

May you find the perfect spot to place your shinglefish and set an intention to attract these auspicious qualities into your life!

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.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING ABOUT SHINGLEFISH?

I love your unique way of making old shingles come to life with sea pictures. They look great with my vintage, artsy farmhouse-like decor in my cottage by the sea.
— Arlene, Malibu, CA
Shinglefish is a amazing concept and I’m excited to finally own one. I ordered the lobster and it was delivered extremely quickly. The quality is impeccable and I can’t wait to order more. These would make a great gift or just great to help bring a room together. Highly recommended.

Each shinglefish is unique. The shingle comes thinner on one side. 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.

Even though you can not eat them, each shinglefish will sustain you as each piece is made to bring joy, fun and whimsy in it’s rustic simplicity.

Other sea creatures are available when you start to create the order. Let us know what you want!
