I was commissioned to create an inviting space for the entrance to the “Spa” at Aruj Salon here in Coconut Grove. Aruj is located at the cornerof Fuller and Grand Ave.
I started with the blank door and two walls and ceiling.
The left wall had two electrical boxes on it and a hole in the wall, so I took a piece of canvas, continued the artwork on it
and hung it on a dowl at the top to cover the boxes but still accessible.
The rest is magic.
I was commissioned by Peter Island Resort in the BVI to create 2 oil paintings 6ft x 10ft each which were placed in their restaurant. The paintings are called “DEADMANS BAY I” and “DEADMANS BAY II” . The beautiful beach and the quietness of this private island is what attracts people to this remote and pristine resort in the caribbean sea.
The owners of Couples Resort commissioned me to paint 16 original watercolors for their superior suites.
For a period of 4 months I lived up on the coast in a private villa and had a studio there were I could paint the work I did of the local life in Jamaica. It was a great experience.
To my surprise I received an email with my painting
“The House of Ruby 2011 official Delray Affair Poster”
as the Cover of Delray Beach, FloridaThe Real Yellow Pages”
My Original Watercolor “The Spice Ladies” image was selected to be the cover image for the Magazine
St. Thomas This week” for the US Virgin Islands.. So greatful for the international exposure.
