Custom Art Project : : Clearwater Beach Map

Vibrant and Fun Watercolors Meets Functional Artwork

Being the resident artist here at LGD gives me some pretty cool opportunities with clients, most recently one of those being for the newly designed Hotel Cabana on Clearwater Beach. LGD did an incredible job exuding a modern, coastal but still minimalistic feel of relaxation throughout the design, much of which parallels my own artistic style in my coastal watercolor artwork.

When the owner commissioned me to create a 3' x 4' map to hang in their entry way for every guest to see, I was beyond excited! Custom maps have really become a passion project of mine, and a way to more deeply explore the design and architecture of different buildings in structures throughout Florida. Aside from these maps becoming a gorgeous piece of 100% custom artwork, they also serve a functional purpose - helping guests navigate their way around a new city or area, all while viewing beautiful illustrations.
