About the Artist

I am a self-taught watercolor artist currently displaying and selling my art at the Artamorada Gallery at the Rain Barrel Artisan Village in Tavernier, Florida. I also belong to the Purple Isles Art Guild, which is composed of over 90 local artists of all media.. It was through that organization that I heard of this project.

Artist's Statement

The Beach Creeper, Ernodea littoralis Sw., is of the Madder Family (Rubiaceae). My limited knowledge of the Keys native plants is growing, as I volunteer more and more at various national and state parks in Monroe County. The flower of this sprawling, ground-huggiing perennial is a pinkish, tubular sort with 4 curled lobes, each measuring only about 1/2 - 5/8" long.
