English painter and book illustrator who specialized in marine art. Nibbs was born in Brighton, Sussex (now East Sussex), and educated at a school in Worthing (run by the father of watercolor artist Henry Tidey). He lived in Brighton throughout his life. Nibbs initially trained as a musician and became a professional cellist with the Theatre Royal orchestra. However, a lifelong love of art combined with a natural talent for detailed observation led him to become a self-taught painter - in both oils and watercolor - particularly of marine subjects. In 1840 a substantial inheritance allowed him to devote himself full-time to art. His marine art depicts scenes mainly off the coast of his native Sussex, France and Holland - though he also drew buildings and landscapes. He exhibited at the Royal Academy, Suffolk Street, British Institute and other institutions.
