Born in Lippspringe, Germany on September 16, 1955 while his father was serving as a Gunnery Officer in the British Army, Guy is a 10th generation Jamaican of English heritage as his family immigrated to Jamaica in 1664. From his early inspirations, Guy's natural gift to recreate marine life has propelled him from Professor of Marine Biology to a Wildlife Artist and Photographer. Guy initially opted for a scientific education, earning high honors in Marine Biology at Aberdeen University in Scotland in 1977. He continued his formal training at the University of West Indies, where he obtained a Doctorate in Fisheries Management.
Not only is Guy Harvey a noted artist and marine exhibitionist, but he also a renowned jewelry designer. Guy Harvey Jewelry includes earrings, necklaces, bracelets, charms, and rings made of 18K gold, sterling silver, and platinum, with diamonds and gemstones in a variety of combinations. Each piece comes with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, guaranteeing that it is from the Guy Harvey Signature Jewelry Collection.
One of his distinguished collections, the Trophy Slides series, which is a collection of sterling silver pieces that feature the artwork of the famous artist, has been a national and international sensation since its release. The Enamel Series is another well known collection by Guy Harvey. These jewelry pieces by Nautora transfer scenes that are alive on canvas into sculpted pieces of personal fine jewelry. Blue Marlins, macaws, sailfish, sea turtles and many other species are depicted with realistic action in full color. In addition, a percentage of sales will be donated to The Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, a non-profit organization that promotes the conservation of our oceans and nurtures the next generation of marine scientists and guardians of our seas.
