McTier has had the wonderful opportunity to paint some of the greatest athletes and fighters of his generation; but little compares to God's majestic creatures of the deep. Jace is currently studying 19th century whaling and working with underwater photographers to create a series of paintings based on Herman Melville's classic - Moby Dick.
"Why is almost every robust healthy boy with a robust healthy soul in him, at some time or other crazy to go to sea?" asks Melville. I pray that my heart will always find itself in awe as I go, as often as possible, whether it be by voyage or as I dip my brush into the deep ultramarine hues of my palette, to the sea - Jace McTier
