Born to Dutch Jewish and African, Kalinago Carib descent, Daniel Jean-Baptiste is a Caribbean artist living in the  paradise of St. Lucia where sunny  skies and abundant water life  provide constant inspiration. His artwork depict  underwater scenes, game fish and their  prey, tropical botanical themes and exotic animals.
 
Daniel’s childhood was  spent fishing off the  wooden jetty in the tiny  fishing village  of Choiseul. The  sea became his  second home and  he  spent hours under the  blistering sun gazing at the  vibrant  colours of tiny wrasse  attacking his  bait. To Daniel, fishing was much more than catching fish; he  found the  whole  experience exhilarating  and  painting became a  way of  capturing a tiny part of  this  bliss.
 
Daniel is constantly inspired by his island home, but laments that most people become so accustomed to their surroundings that they overlook the exquisite beauty around them. Through his artwork he hopes to reignite an awakening to this free gift, and  urges us to take a moment to notice the  colours and  dancing light next time  we go fishing. This is the  lighting effect he  strives to capture in his art.
