Marc Castelli

Marc Castelli grew up in a military family enriched by travel and living in many places. This interest continues with Marc’s family and their vacations to Maine, Brittany, Iceland, and Italy, reflecting the desire to have more than a casual experience with such places. Their destinations have usually been based on proximity to water. This reflects his consuming need to talk with those who work on the water, and photography, sketch, draw, and paint them and their boats. His subjects include watermen, lobstermen, their workboats, America’s Cup racers and their yachts, and the extended families that race their log canoes on the Chesapeake Bay’s Eastern Shore.

Through the US State Department’s Art in Embassies Program, his work has been requested for ambassadors’ residences in Brazil, Qatar, and Madagascar.
