In the Press

From naval battles to the family history hidden in immigration ships, he believes each ship has a soul behind its stories. And a painting behind its soul.

Born near the dockyards of Philadelphia, I may as well have been a ship, so great is my passion for them. Painting became a new passion, and although I love making ship models, painting has been my mainstay ever since.
I prefer a smooth canvas, but I have and will paint on anything. When you devote your life to your passion, many times you must make do with whatever you find available. Although I’ve used nearly every medium (mostly oils in the distant past) I left it all behind once I turned to acrylics. My art is my lifestyle. I love history, live history, and now that I’m older, more than ever.

Portrait of James Flood

How Did We Get Here

Born in Philadelphia, PA, on the 4th of July, 1944, Jim Flood grew up not far from the docks of Philadelphia. His passion for ships dates back to his first memories, and from the beginning, he pursued his dream to surround himself with models and images of ships. By the time he was a young teen, he had built a large fleet of fully ballasted ship models. At age fifteen, he obtained plans for the USS Pennsylvania from the National Archives and initiated the 4 ft model that now resides as a centerpiece in his home. In 2007, Jim was commissioned to scratch-build a six-foot model of the USS Oklahoma, now on display at the Wall of Honor Museum in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Today, Jim’s paintings can be viewed throughout the world in galleries, museums, ships, private collections, books and magazines.


Some of his earliest displayed works appear on board the USS New Jersey (permanently berthed in Camden, NJ), where Jim served as Quartermaster during the Vietnam era. In April 2012, Jim sailed on board the MS Balmoral for her Titanic Memorial Cruise from Southampton – Cohb – Halifax – New York. During the voyage, he executed a painting of the RMS Titanic at Sea. Passengers would pass by his workstation in the Atrium as he painted. Jim still loves to be on the water and can often be found touring the waterways of South Florida in his hand-built turn-of-the-century (1900) style launch, Duchess. His former vessel, Royal Charles, a 24 ft Charles II royal yacht replica, is currently undergoing renovation by her new owner, Fred Banke. Lifetime endeavors, these signature vessels are testimony to Jim’s devoted romance with ships and the sea.
