About Guy Harvey
The story begins on Jamaica’s south coast where a young boy and his parents enjoyed many hours fishing and diving, as well as beach excursions with the entire family. Growing up in this idyllic setting, this boy knew that his life would forever be focused on the ocean and all its offerings.
Today this young boy is the man we know as Guy Harvey—the embodiment of everything having to do with the water. He is a unique blend of artist, conservationist, diver, angler, scientist and explorer, fiercely devoted to his family and his love of the ocean.
A 10th generation Jamaican of English heritage, his passion for marine life started to grow from that tranquil childhood backdrop and he began drawing pictures of the many different fish he observed. From his early inspirations, Guy’s natural gift to recreate the underwater realm has propelled him from Professor of Marine Biology to Wildlife Artist and Photographer.
