A native South Floridian currently residing in Deerfield Beach, FL, marine life artist, Doug Bolly has been making a splash with collectors and fans worldwide. Bolly's artwork captures the fragile beauty and sensitive spirit of Florida's marine sanctuaries. He is noted for his photorealistic yet lively portrayals of Dolphins, Sea Turtles, and game fish; and “he possesses an unusual talent for creating underwater perspectives and light“.
He completed a record setting feat while creating life size undersea murals on the wheel houses of 2 coastal freighters which became a part of Palm Beach County's Artificial Reef Program in February 2002. Three vessels, the St. Jacques, GilbertSea, and the Shasha Boekanier were brought to Miami under drug seizure, sitting in the Miami River for more than a year, were "recycled" under a Coast Guard Drug cleanup program, and finally came to rest as the Governor's Riverwalk Reef off of Lake Worth Inlet. In April of of 2002, Gov. Jeb Bush dedicated the reef to the State of Florida in a ceremony in which Bolly was honored for his contribution to the project.
Bolly is also known for several murals within the theme park, Miami Seaquarium, depicting Lolita the Killer Whale, manatees and coral reefs alive with color and activity. These murals are all lifesize representations and each mural averages 1200 square feet or more.
