Guy L'Hostis was born in Paimpol,Britanny,France in 1945 to a family with strong maritime tradition.

Trough self-teaching,he very soon began to paint in gouache,oil and finally water colour which is now his preferred technique.

His great passion for painting marine impressions dates from his 29 years of experience navigating with the merchant marine as well as sailing cruises and regattas on various sailing boats.
