Ian Sebire - Artist and Writer
Welcome, my name is Ian Sebire and I am an artist and writer specialising in subjects that reflect my lifelong passion for ships and the sea. From ocean liners, merchant ships and naval vessels of all eras, to beaches and shorelines, my paintings combine technical accuracy with atmospheric settings.
To view original paintings to purchase, please select the Ships - Originals or Beach scenes - Originals pages. For prints please select the Ships - Prints or Beach scenes - Prints pages as appropriate.
Would you like to commission a painting, as a memento of a favourite ship, voyage or beach scene or maybe as a special gift? If so please view the Commissions page.
In addition to running Sarnia Watercolours, I am also a freelance writer and a regular contributor of feature articles to Shipping Today & Yesterday magazine - see Books / Articles . In 2018 I completed my first book; 'Masters of the Italian Line: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raffaello' which is published by Amberley Publications and widely available. My follow up book 'Italian Liners of the 1960's - The Costanzi Quartet' is now available in the UK and from 15 November 2021 in the USA. You can also access additional content relating to this volume on The Costanzi Quartet page .
