Old Jack is a bit of an enigma to us — what we do know is that he is former fisherman who, now retired, relaxes on the shore and paints nautical scenes of schooners, ships and fishing boats, cutting through the waves. Old Jack began fishing at 14 and retired at 73, he has truly dedicated his life to the sea!
Per the wishes of Old Jack, the English gallery who represents him has promised to keep his name and identity anonymous — a wonderful mystery and only adds to the wonder of these charming paintings.
