Over the Past 10 Years I
have specialised principally in Marine and Antarctic Seascapes and
most of these Oil Paintings depict Modern Whaling vessels. A number of
these Paintings are currently on display at Museums which cover the Whaling
Industry principally the Kendall Whaling Museum, Sharon, Boston,
U.S.A., Chr. Christensen's Hvalfangst Museum Sandefjord, Norway and
the South Georgia Whaling Museum.
The paintings are all highly and accurately detailed showing an
exact replica of the Vessel thereby depicting a historical record.
L.Bryne Waterman Award
at the 20th Annual Whaling History Symposium by L. Byrne Waterman and
Kendall Whaling Museum
Director Stuart M. Frank for depicting an accurate pictorial record of
the whaling industry ships.
I am in the unique position of having been employed during the 1940's
in the Antarctic Whaling and have first hand knowledge and experience
of these vessels, which are now part of maritime history. On several occasions I have
given slide lectures related to the modern whaling industry at various
museums in the United States.
Which include the Kendall whaling Museum at Sharon, Massachusetts and
The Mariners Museum at Newport News, Virginia.
In recent years have started to produce paintings of historical
vessels relating to exploration in Antarctica.
