About the Author:

Born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Robert McGreevy is a Great Lakes historian and marine artist whose family history is steeped in the shipbuilding industry. McGreevy's grandfather and father worked for Harland & Wolff, Belfast's biggest shipbuilder; additionally, in 1912, his grandfather worked on the building of the Titanic. During his formative years and surrounded by talk of shipbuilding, McGreevy began building models and sketching ships. McGreevy's interest in ships had him wondering what ships looked like in their proper environment and this curiosity spurred his interest in painting. With no known photographs capturing the image of many ships, McGreevy delved into research by studying a ship's enrollment papers and reading contemporary accounts. McGreevy has completed over 300 paintings of Great Lakes ships, encompassing all periods of ship design and development. A historian first and an artist second, by relying on his technical training and drawing in perspective, through his paintings, McGreevy is able to share the results of his research.
