Sarnia Watercolours -                                                    by Ian Sebire
Welcome to Sarnia Watercolours.

My name's Ian Sebire and I am a watercolour artist and freelance 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 and prints available to purchase, please select the Gallery - Originals and  Gallery - Prints pages.

To commission a painting as a special gift, or as a memento of a favourite ship or voyage, please go to the Commissions page. 

As well as painting I am also a freelance writer and regular contributor of articles to Shipping Today & Yesterday magazine. 

In 2018 I completed my first book; 'Masters of the Italian Line: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raffaello' which is published by Amberley Publications. Further details about this book and future projects  can be found on the Books/Articles page.

Thank  you  for your interest in my work.  If you would  like  to find out  more please contact  me  at
