San Juan Islands Artwork

I am pleased to feature this page of San Juan Islands Artwork, which reflects the variety, diversity, and beauty of the Islands themselves. (Skip directly to the glimpses of Island artist's work.) Perhaps the Islands are a natural place to create because the tranquil setting and relaxed island lifestyle allow the creative juices to flow? Quite possibly, as is evidenced by the amazing art pieces inspired and produced here. This artwork can be found in all mediums, from watercolor, oils, and pastels; to clay, glass, metal, wood, and textiles. If you don't find what you are looking for, or there's something you'd like included here, let me know!

While you're here, consider browsing the art books, kits, and supplies in Simply San Juan's bookstore to get tips and suggestions for your own creations, as well as a selection of beautiful coloring books for kids of all ages. Plus, print out some really fun art coloring pages of well-known paintings, and make your own version of a masterpiece. (Read more amusing artist quotes like the Thoreau quote below, and see how some artists, authors, and scientists view art, creativity, and life!)

Henry David Thoreau
