Tordoff, Frederick – English/American Artist

Frederick Tordoff (born 1939)

A New Jersey-based artist, Fred Tordoff specializes in marine and sailing subjects.

Born and raised in a coastal town in England, Tordoff sketched local scenes and landmarks. While studying marine radio and electronics in Yorkshire, he began making paintings of ships in oils as an avocation. He would continue to pursue this dual career, traveling the world as a radio and electronics officer aboard ships and producing paintings of ships, first in oils, later in watercolors.

Currently Tordoff resides in New Jersey, and paints maritime scenes of the Hudson, Nantucket and New Bedford whaling ships, and the northeast coast of the U.S. His paintings are in collections in England, the United States, Scotland, Holland, Norway, New Zealand and South Africa.
