Edward D Walker is a world renowned marine artist/publisher who specialises in deep sea sail but has an extensive interest in ships of all categories and eras.  His paintings hang in public, private and royal collections worldwide.

Walker is the official artist to RMS Titanic Inc, the New York based salvors, conservationists and guardians of the RMS Titanic.

Lengthy research on each commisioned work, before even putting brush to canvas, results in paintings which are outstanding in their authenticity. Walker has gained well deserved recognition throughout the art world due, in part, to his meticulous attention to detail which is evident in each piece he produces. This excellence, combined with an inate sense of colour, depth and perspective, have resulted in paintings being classed not just as beautifully crafted works of art, but also as important historical documents in their own right.

Fine art prints of original Walker oils are available through his publishing company, Sumar Publications.

Mr. Walker has provided us with permission to use his images.
