Lacy McClary is best known for her whimsical, island-inspired paintings and reclaimed wooden boho art pieces which have adorned the walls of many private homes, condos, resorts, restaurants and galleries throughout the islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and beyond, for over a decade.
Lacy McClary Studio came to life in 2004 when the artist moved to Sanibel Island and found herself filled with inspiration from her tropical surroundings. From birds to fish to tree frogs, sail boats, sunrises, sunsets and various sea life, Lacy found herself splashing her inspirations onto canvas so rapidly she could hardly keep up.
Living and working in her Bohemian style cottage on Sanibel, Lacy continues to express herself with passion and color, creating original paintings and commissioned works of art year around.
Lacy believes you should surround yourself with things that make you happy and feel free. She loves to challenge herself and her clients to dare to be different. "We should all embrace the journey, believe in the destination, and live in the now!"
On a Personal Note...
As an island artist, I am grateful to be surrounded by the color, beauty and inspiration that fills each moment. Everything in my environment influences my creative process ... the colors I see, the feelings I sense, the air I breathe. Even the people I come in contact with ... all of their richness and vibrancy are woven into the cloth that makes me who I am.
I strive to harness and blend these feelings and ideas, allowing them to flow creatively from my free-spirited nature through the paintbrush and onto the canvas.
I am truly honored that I get to live my passion every day. My goal is to love life to the fullest, embrace each moment, and express my visions in the most imaginative and inspirational ways possible.
