Hi everyone and welcome to Island of Blue! This is the first of what will hopefully be a regular series of blog posts to tell you about new things going on at Island of Blue and share tips and experiences as an artist and business owner. I would also like to feature fellow coastal artists here as well!
I started Island of Blue with a mission to inspire ocean protection and conservation through bright and colorful artwork. Island of Blue creates beach and surf art, whimsical wave art, sea turtle and manatee art, abstract tourism-style maps, beach nursery art, and coastal home decor. All of my pieces start out as hand-drawn, original watercolor paintings and are either sold as originals or as fine art reproductions (prints), notecards, or fabrics of my artwork.
I love exploring new beaches, as well as visiting my favorite ones. I gather inspiration from colorful sunsets, sea turtles, manatees, waves, the shoreline, and so many other things seaside. I hope to include a few blog posts about some of my favorite beaches, too!
Have a sunny day!
