Imagine that you are swimming in the turquoise waters of Hawaii. Unencumbered by snorkels or scuba gear, you glide through branches of coral, while all around you darts abundant sea life. Dark shapes slide between shafts of sunlight that pierce the ocean's surface from above. Just as you breach the surface, you are, for an instant, suspended between two different worlds. The quest to communicate that unique moment led Robert Lyn Nelson to perfect a whole new artistic viewpoint, creating, in the process, the modern marine art movement. At 38, Robert Lyn Nelson is the recognized founder of the "two worlds" school of art and is celebrated internationally for his achievements and innovations in a genre that is widely copied. His journey to the top of his field has been achieved through discipline, devotion, and innate talent.
