"Waterways at night have beautiful reflections and lights that seem to skip across the water.
I wanted to show how the vast sky makes the cranes and derricks seem small by comparison."
Christopher Reid was born in South
Africa, but moved to the US at an early age. He studied fine art at The Savannah College Of Art And Design and UNC-Wilmington. He trained in
all media, but currently favors pastel, acrylic, watercolor, and charcoal.
Christopher Reid currently resides in South Africa.
passionate about art, enjoy the act of creation, and hope to help people who
view my artwork appreciate the beauty already around them. Too many people
stumble through life without enjoying nature. Art is a form of communication
and it is as important what you say as how you say it. I am an optimist at
heart and I choose to use my art to talk about beauty. Since nature provides
the inspiration for art, I enjoy painting en plein air so that I can be out in
nature and incorporate all the senses into my paintings and better communicate
an experience of the place.
Original paintings by Christopher Reid featured here on Nautical Shops are
readily available through our website. If you wish to obtain prints of his
