PAINTINGS REMAINING in the gallery. 
Paul Hee passed away September 26, 2011. A master of the luminescent style, Hee lived and painted in his Marsh Street studio in Beaufort, NC, where he retired after a life at sea. He served in the US Navy, and as a Miami-based cruise ship executive.

His life-long love of the sea led him to study art with Leo Stitsky of Fort Lauderdale School of Art. His oil paintings often sold before the paint dried on the canvas.

"His deft brush work, use of color, shape and light, conveyed the ever changing drama and mood of the sea," said Raymond Voelpel of Tidewater Gallery in Swansboro. "Paul Hee established himself as one of America's finest maritime artists."


"Light-dazzingly exuberant, tranquilly evocative, or menacingly looming, Paul Hee's paintings are suffused with the world view of masters, but his work remains clearly and identifiably his own," said Paul Fontenoy, NC Maritime Museum curator and historian.
