Buckley Smith, a native Southern Californian, has always had a passion for boats. His marine and fantasy art reflect his early love of wooden craft. At the age of eight he built his first model with his father, and at nineteen he began selling his pen and ink drawings of flying schooners and other sailing vessels while living in Hawaii. At twenty-four he built his own 32 ft. cutter, which he sailed half way around the world, supporting himself with his fantasy and marine art.
