Shane Reiswig

Shane Reiswig’s fascination with the ocean and all things aquatic is 
brought to life in his paintings and illustrations. With beauty and
 intensity his colors & textures bring about an atmosphere and richness
 of feeling that communicates his passion and emotion for the ocean and 
the life that it embraces.

Shane’s journey began in Juneau Alaska where he was raised and then 
became a commercial fisherman for much of his life. His love for the 
water brought many sailing trips up and down the Inside Passage from
 Juneau to Seattle. He currently holds a Coast Guard Masters License 
and is an avid sailor. Shane’s journey into the arts began at a young
 age and continued into college, at the Art Institute of Seattle and
 then on to The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena to receive his
 BFA, where his love for landscapes and fish became his drive and focus
 in his painting. His works have also included portraits such as a
 portrait for the Lt. Governor of Alaska and painted maps driven once
 again for his love of the ocean and surrounding land.

His current works bringing him in to the future include a series of 
paintings for a Northwest chain of seafood restaurants and two new
 prints beginning a new series on boats. His clients include The Tacoma
 Art Museum, Columbia Sportswear, The Wall Street Journal, America West
 Airlines, UPS, Ocean Realm Magazine, Fly Rod and Reel Magazine, Sail
 Magazine, Red Lobster Restaurants, McGraw Hill and many more. Shane’s
 work can be found at Taku Graphics Publishing in Juneau, Alaska where
 his prints and cards are sold throughout the northwest and the U.S.
 You can find Shane currently living in Seattle with his wife Heidi and
 their three children.
