NOAA and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) are accepting public comments on dolphinfish management until Tuesday, February 22nd.

This is not the end ....
There will be updates on my fb and website with new things. If there are any markets or holiday festivals still happening I’ll post them! I am always available here, email, text, and the occasional yell across the street!

“I’ve always been into something artsy and, the beach. I’ve tried to take the two things I love the most and make people smile.. Using lots of color and texture with acrylic and water color.. I make the most of repurposed wood, canvas, and glass for a little bit of old and new. Capturing a bit of the ocean, beach, and sea life we all get to have here.”
