About The Studio


For the past 24 years I've been working as a illustrator, instructor and designer. I have been fortunate enough to have been able to learn numerous techniques in a variety of mediums and styles. This has given me a wide range of flexibility in meeting the needs of my clients and charitable causes.

I do have formal degrees in commercial design, illustration and fine art. However time and instruction under some amazing illustrators and designers have been the most rewarding experience an artist could ever hope for. 

James Deaton Studio offers numerous services. Although known for Ocean Art and matters relating to the ocean. There are numerous other services that can be provided.

Commercial illustrations, portraits and graphic design are a few of the services that are offered. 

The studio is preparing for the release of "Find Your Reef" a clothing line where all the designs are done by the studio.
