About

The Yacht Portrait Co. is a business set up by an artist with a passion for sailing and an eye for detail.

With years of experience both in painting and on the water comes careful precise works of art that show real understanding of how a yacht sits or moves through the water and how a sail is set to achieve performance and drive.

‘ Art is one way we can connect again with Nature … stopping, listening, breathing, watching observing … Suzanne Chisnell’s work is a prime example of this. As soon as you walk in the gallery the colours are striking and instantly you hear the sound of water rushing and bubbling. They are powerful pictures, alive with sound and senses, they are a must. I challenge you, even if you have never been out on a boat not to hear the water in those pictures. Fabulous true works of art and emotion’
