Lacy McClary

Sponsored by and Located at: SANIBEL CAPITVA TRUST COMPANY

Working in her studio/gallery near the shrimp docks on Fort Myers Beach, artist Lacy McClary was inspired to create “Painted Sailor,” a “Salty Captain that lives by the sea, telling stories of his adventures and keeping the Kraken from his wooden knee!”


Lacy is best known for her whimsical, island-inspired paintings and reclaimed boho wooden art pieces which have adorned the walls of many private homes, condos, resorts, restaurants and galleries throughout the islands of Sanibel and Captiva, and beyond, for over a decade.

The Lacy McClary Studio came to life in 2004 when the artist moved to Sanibel Island and found herself filled with inspiration from her tropical surroundings. From birds to fish to tree frogs, sail boats, sunrises, sunsets

and various sea life, Lacy found herself splashing her inspirations onto canvas so rapidly she could hardly keep up.Working in her Bohemian style studio/ gallery near the shrimp docks on Fort Myers Beach, Lacy continues to express herself with passion and color, creating original paintings and commissioned works of art year round.

Lacy believes you should surround yourself with things that make you happy and feel free. She loves to challenge herself and her clients to dare to be different. “We should all embrace the journey, believe in the destination.
