ABOUT “A MANATEE AND ITS
SAN CAP FRIENDS”
Rachel’s inspiration for her manatee comes
from her love of the environment and the
beauty of the islands. “How lucky we are,”
says Rachel, “to have such beauty in all that
surrounds us and to be able to share that
beauty with all living creatures on the islands.”
Rachel Pierce is a lifelong artist and long-time TV
journalist who recently left the anchor desk to focus
full-time on her artwork.
Based in Sanibel, Florida, Rachel paints
bright, modern original art in oil and acrylic
reflecting the natural beauty and abundant
wildlife found only in tropical Southwest Florida.
From her abstract beachscapes to her joyful underwater tableaus,
Rachel’s colorful coastal creations feature
swimming sea creatures – like loggerhead turtles,
manatee, jellyfish, sharks, seahorses and octopi;
soaring shorebirds and wading flamingos;
technicolor palm trees and florals; gators, mollusks,
mermaids, and more.
Rachel sells and exhibits her fine art originals in shops
and galleries throughout Southwest Florida, as well
as on her website, ByRachelPierce.com, along with
a variety of collectible prints and notecards.
