LALITA LYON COFER
I love the tropics, the Caribbean Islands, the lush beauty and brilliant colors...but most of all, I love the people I have met on my travels through the islands...the friendly smiles, the hospitality and warm hearts!
I take photos, I paint on the sandy street corners of the little towns and villages, and the beaches and harbors. I return to my studio with images in my head and heart and eventually they find their way on to canvas. Many times it is an image as clearly seen in my minds eye as a photo, with the spicy scent of nutmeg in the air, and the gentle breeze on my skin, and the rhythm of a steel band pulsing away, that sends me to my blank canvas and the undeniable urge to paint.
These are the just some of the islands I love: Grenada, Bequia, Mayreau, St. Martin, St. Thomas, the British Virgins, Saba, St. Eustasius, Antigua, Barbados, Eleuthera, the Bahamas...just to name a few.
