PRESS RELEASE – Five years ago today, we tragically lost two Icons of St Lucia’s Visual Arts and Culture: Sabinus & Eugenia Thomas who shared immense passion and dedication to the local arts and craft, and its roots in our everyday lives and culture.

Maestros in their own gifted rights, the two humbly shared their space and opportunities by harnessing the creativity of many gifted artists who would otherwise never have been discovered.

Their Livity Art Studio was always a live and open museum, and was the fitting greeting to every visitor entering Soufriere – in a kaleidoscope of colour and culture.  Your first impression of La Soufriere was always Art at Columbette.

The art of “Livity” depicted the story of a proud people and has been featured in Europe, United States and especially the UK. In many instances, Eugenia travelled to Dominica for exchanges with local artisans, sharing similarity in culture and carving Technics.

The result was a fusion of impressions as is vivid in the popular and now almost ubiquitous Calabash Art.

Their works and efforts attracted the patronage of many including; International designers, top hotels and especially DMCs  such as Serenity Vacations.

We pay humble tribute to Sabinus & Eugenia in the fondest of memories and these few photos Sh

On this the fifth anniversary of their untimely departure, we invite all to join us in remembering these iconic figures –  gone but certainly never forgotten.

The love of money has enable lots of people to parish based on psychological negligence. They were told to moved.Didnt want to because,of being in a good spot to sell their goods to the tourist as they drove bye. The bible has identified what happen to you when you greedy.

  5. Yes they were good artist but,being hard headed to leave a dangerous place wasn't visualised by them from an artistical point of view.

    • That is not very nice to say at all. That is why outsiders will always say you people are negative because there is always one rotten apple to be distasteful. Get out of here, you negative person and learn how to be positive.
