  1. I came across Jonathan's art about three years ago and immediately thought WTF. This thing is too real. St. Lucia is blessed with a bunch of great artists. I see murals as I travel around the island that makes me proud to be a Lucian. I also visit individual artists to enjoy and buy their works.

    There was a feature on CNN International a few years ago. It fell under the heading of Travel and was about 30 minutes long. That feature was all about St. Lucian art. It covered St. Omer, murals, the Catholic churches art, Eudovic etc. Simply awesome and I was spellbound.

    To all our local artist, I am proud of everyone of you. You are special with your unique gifts.
