A Conversation with Gerri Hyman, Artist and Owner of My Island
Four years ago, artist Gerri Hyman started My Island by creating a few designs of lively and whimsical sea creatures to reproduce and turn into decorative products. Gerri's designs are now sold through retailers around the globe and offered in prints, framed art, canvas giclees, pillows, acrylics, tea towels, greeting cards, aprons, and canvas mats. She continues to add products that feature her unique style.
Gerri was inspired not only by summers spent on the South and North Carolina coasts, but also by numerous trips to warm, tropical locations. Her creations are not meant to be too realistic in color and shape; but are representative of the sea life, fowl, and foliage on her imaginary island….. better known as My Island
