Welcome to my website. I spend most of my life drawing, or painting, or writing, or teaching other people to paint and draw. I have a particular obsession with boats and the sea, so you’ll see my work in books and sailing magazines, as well as on the walls of my studio in Suffolk. Home is an elderly tug boat up a creek and I blog occasionally about life afloat, sailing, drawing and anything else.

If you read Practical Boat Owner magazine, you’ll find my cartoon every month illustrating the ever so slightly bonkers Mad about the BoatĀ column (http://www.pbo.co.uk/dave-selby).

river to ourselves low res
Funny how we always have the river to ourselves this time of year…..

I’m in the middle of moving studio at the moment – from Waldringfield Boatyard to a barn near Martlesham Creek – so I should be sorted out by the beginning the next week. Do come and visit (but phone first to make sure I’m there and if you need directions) 01394 549247.

Get in touch if you’re interested in having art lessons, commissioning work or talking about art and boats!
