Biography from VALLEJO GALLERY, LLC, Marine Art Specialists:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Blessed with an inherited passion for maritime subjects through his family’s nautical heritage, the art of Shane Couch harkens back to the works of the finest 19th century marine artists. The subject he holds in the highest regard and has in common with artists such as James E. Buttersworth, Thomas Hoyne and Montague Dawson: yesteryear’s greatest sailing yachts.

The sea has held Couch’s fascination, from the stories of the naval experiences of his elders, to growing up in the storied port of Liverpool. Early on he developed a fondness for the works of Liverpool master Samuel Walters. While working as an aeronautical engineer, he pursued his art, and began showing at the Isle of Wight, Cowes in 1992. Within two years he established himself as a full-time professional artist.

Full of exacting detail, he expands beyond mere draftsmanship to impart creative, fluid visions of the sea and superb compositional arraignments. His theory is that the yachts must be painted as they were built, in layers from the keel up, and this methodology keeps his output quite limited, but worth owning and sought the world over. We feel he is among the best of today’s marine artists, with outstanding market potential, and Vallejo Gallery is pleased to represent him.
