Marine Art

Ships & Their Stories exhibit and art show
Ships & Their Stories appeared at the Custom House Museum, Key West in 2009

Living in Key West, one of the most beautiful places in the world, I am offered endless inspiration for subjects to paint.

The sea & sky, birds, mangroves, & marine life are a wonderful challenge to represent.

Combine these with a colorful Maritime History filled with Pirates, Galleons, & Wreckers that play out a historical drama in this setting of beauty. Then one has even more inspiration to portray events & tell their stories.

History & Art are the two things I've loved most in my life. I find an abundance of both in Old Key West.
