"The Atlantic Shore" Oil on Canvas 43"x55"
Paul Beebe was born in 1965 in New Haven, Connecticut. He is a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University, with a degree in Graphic Design. He currently resides in South Windsor, Connecticut, with his
wife and fellow artist Christine and their sons Jack and Nicholas.
Paul has been painting since age 15, but found himself drawn to marine subjects after his first visit to the island of Martha’s Vineyard 25 years ago. He became inspired by its rich maritime history and a great supply of subject matter in which he could express himself. He began to render the historic schooners, elegant racing yachts and whaling ships that regularly cruised island waters.
Starting with a preliminary value sketch, Paul develops his paintings using multiple layers of color from a limited palette. His finished Paintings are highly expressive works that often feature the luminous skies and muted colors that define his subject in different atmospheric conditions. He enjoys studio painting as well as plein air.
Paul is a signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists. He is a member of the Martha’s Vineyard Art Association as well as the Hamden Arts League. He won the “Award of Excellence” at the Thirty Second Annual International Marine Art Exhibition at The Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport, and was featured in Waterways. His work was also featured in Martha’s Vineyard Magazine.
