As an artist, I strive to portray the beauty, color and mood of everyday life both at sea and ashore.


For commissions and sales, please contact Charles at the address below.


Charles, a keen artist from an early age, lived aboard a Sailing Barge on the River Thames as a child. He went to sea as a cadet at the age of 16 in the British Merchant Marine, and came ashore in New Zealand at 24, having obtained an unlimited Master's license. As he worked his way up the management ladder in the shipping industry, he continued painting in his spare time. In 1984 he was transferred with his family to New York, then later San Francisco before settling in Seattle in 1999. He retired from managing a major shipping line in 2005.

In the mid 90's he began painting seriously, switching from watercolors to oils a few years ago. He is also a recent student of the well known marine artist and illustrator Austin Dwyer.

He is also a keen yachtsman, having raced and cruised boats of all sizes in most of the world's oceans.

Not unnaturally, his knowledge and affection for the sea is reflected in his art.
