Underwater Art – Original Paintings & Prints

Contemporary paintings inspired by our love of the sea. Kim & Kay Vaudin

We create our underwater paintings to inspire and remind people of their own personal experiences by capturing the essence of the sea.

Immerse yourself and feel the freedom of the ocean.

Our art

Painting ‘Jellyfish wave’ transported me back to the sea, remembering encounters with these pulsating alien-like creatures.

There was a time when the mere thought of swimming with thousands of jellyfish was enough to make my skin crawl. But snorkelling with millions of non-stinging Golden jellyfish in one of Palau’s saltwater lakes was so totally mesmerising, we were the last ones out of the water. At home, we’ve often dived with huge barrel jellyfish (Rhizostoma pulmo), which supposedly don’t sting either, but I’ve never been brave enough to test this out.


The artists – Kim & Kay

Deep Impressions is a mother & daughter artist team who have been painting together for over 20 years. As snorkellers and divers (and coming from a diving family), they love to be in the ocean seeking inspiration for their art and taking photographs to use as reference.

Their artwork is designed to reflect peoples passion for the sea and to enjoy their own connection to it, while at home.

‘Absolutely love all their paintings. I bought one at the Dive Show, I was so impressed with all the detail, quality and how beautiful all the paintings are.’
