David Footer is a Lewiston Maine artist whose work spans multiple disciplines. A licensed taxidermist at the age of 15, Footer was inspired by the work of Herb Welch who was known as the premier taxidermist of his era.
As a guide on the on the famous Broadback River in Northern Quebec for an amazing 26 seasons, Footer spent thousands of hours watching the movements of fish. That experience is reflected through his paintings, wood fish carvings, prints, fish mountings, and other works of art.
He is also the creator of the Footer Special, a tandem trolling streamer that has caught some of the largest brookies in Quebec.
