Announcement    Welcome to Trixie's Boutique!

Here you can find an assortment of unique & useful products featuring my "slightly" humorous art. I have been sketching fish for about 30+ years now and slowly started injecting my sense of humor & life experiences into my creations. It's what sets me apart from the rest of the marine artist pack, I try to convey from the fishes perspective on how they really live when we(humans) are not looking.

I have several websites to browse around on, you can find varying gifts at each locale but nothing too far from the sea! I am hands on with all my products here~all originating from my pencil art. Please make yourself at home & enjoy the humor!

Welcome to Trixie's Fineries by Karen Rhodes where you will find some of the most unique fish art

Billfish have lives too. They want clean water, ballyhoo and to swim freely. Unfortunately each year there are thousands of people determined to interrupt the billfish's solitary quest for lunch and procreation. They arrive on beautiful sportfisherman. They don't want to hurt anybody, just roughhouse for a little bit and then gently say good bye. But what about the life of these piscatorial play toys ? Do they have good days ? Are there days they just want to stay home in bed ?



No one has better captured the plight of the billfish better than Karen Rhodes. As a young girl she was always entranced with the Outer Banks and sea life. Always sketching as a child, Karen discovered her gift early on. After concentrating on her art classes in highschool she attended Virginia Commonwealth University Commercial Art program. The Billfishing community has embraced her work enthusiastically. At tournaments, Karen's display booth is frequently mobbed and within a small community of offshore fishermen, she is a bit of a celebrity.

She works closely with The Billfish Foundation on developing product to be sold to help fund the research for tag and release and biological studies for this species. Trixie has become quite an icon around the globe and Karen is happy to be a part of these organizations so that our children too can have a future in fishing. She creates many products based upon her whimsical drawings, including a line of apparel & accessories, tervis tumblers, gifts and housewares.

Throughout the year Karen can be found showing her artwork and "Trixie's Fineries" that have been created from these images at select Billfish Tournaments and Boat Shows along the East Coast.



We hope you enjoy her humorous take on the life of the billfish.
