Acrylic paintings on canvas can be removed from their stretchers, rolled and put into rigid tubes for easy transport.
Situated on the north-east coast of Antigua, near VC Bird International Airport, the Art Gallery carries the complete range of her art: original paintings in watercolour and acrylic, high-quality reproduction prints, fine art postcards and greetings cards.
Everything (well, nearly everything!) is suitcase-friendly but paintings can, of course, be shipped upon request by FedEx International, which has always proved both fast and reliable.
You can also see examples of Gilly’s specially commissioned portraits of cats and dogs. These she paints from high resolution photos emailed to her by her clients. They are then sent by FedEx once they have met with the pet owner’s approval.
Gilly has published four small books in the series Cool Caribbean Books (three of these – on Caribbean Cookery, Cocktails & the Top 20 Places in Antigua – are written, edited and illustrated by Gilly). These make both excellent gifts and souvenirs at $US 10 each. The Cookery book is VERY popular! Most of the ingredients are Caribbean but can easily be found elsewhere such as in Europe, the USA and the UK.
