Artist Comments

Clownfish live in saltwater. They’re also known as Anemonefish because they frequently live among sea anemones. They are brightly colored sea creatures that can be yellow, orange, reddish, or blackish in color. Many have three white bars or patches of white, depending on the species. Clown Anemonefish prefer the warmer waters of the Indian and Pacific oceans, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Red Sea. They are not found in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean, or the Mediterranean Sea.

My painting makes this tiny fish look much larger than it really is, as they only grow to between 3 and 7 inches in length. I was visiting a pet shop with my kids one day where some of these were fish on display. I was amazed at how tiny these wondrous sea creatures are!

Some Interesting Facts About Clownfish

    • All Clownfish are born male. However, later after maturity, some will become female.
    • They typically eat algae, zooplankton, worms, and small crustaceans.
    • Clownfish live in a “symbiotic” relationship with their host anemones.
    • They are extremely aggressive fish and will defend their territory and the sea anemone where they live.
    • The Clownfish will live up to 5 years in captivity and up to 10 years in the wild.

The portrait of the man on the boat is fantastic. I have a God-given talent that I need to re-discover and seeing your site and reading your ‘About Me‘ section was just what I needed. Thanks for doing what you do.”
