Jim Clary

Web Site     United States


The prolific and unquestionable talent of marine artist, author, and historian Jim Clary is traced to his early days as a schoolboy. He remembers vividly having his ears boxed while drawing in arithmetic. Yet his love for the sea and ships no doubt began during those early years when he lived near the Detroit River, fishing and playing amid the sea gulls and the beckoning whistles of passing vessels. This environment, he believes, established his strong desire to paint ships. So when the family moved to the rural town of Richmond, Michigan, he spent much of his time in nearby St. Clair, a small town along the St. Clair River, deepening his interest in ship's lore and led him to devote his full talents to painting ships and collecting bits and pieces of maritime history. Like most of the famous marine artists of the past, Clary is self-taught. Hungry for and fascinated by maritime lore, his natural talent evolved through the combined effort of drawing and the love and knowledge of ships. Thus having relied on extensive study and experience, his  works are profound statements of historical accuracy and articulate detail - a trademark that made him famous.


Sea Scout

My love of the water began as a child when my family would spend all summer in a cottage on a lake in Michigan. I began sailing as a windsurfer then progressed to sailboats. I now sail all summer on Lake Michigan and race with The Little Traverse Yacht Club.  I own a WindRider tri-marman.

In the winter I sail on the Gulf of Mexico. In between I race with The University of Michigan Sailing Club where I also enjoy being a sailing instructor. We sail J15s and Lasers.

I began drawing and painting as a child as well. I graduated from college with an degree in fine art and spent many years as a commercial illustrator.



The Endurance

Stuart Arnett

I primarily work in graphite, but I also enjoy exploring other mediums such as oil pastels and watercolours. I find that the graphite allows me to obtain the high level of detail seen in my work, while pastels allow a more impressionistic side to develop in the nature landscapes.

My quest for detail is never ending and comes somewhat from my scientific and chemistry education as well as my love of nature in its true form. 

Having no formal art training, the 1000 Islands and growing up in a home where arts and crafts were common place were extremely influential.
