What does Lizzie Lu’s Island Retreat have in common with Stephen Tyler from Aerosmith, Jasmine, James Taylor and the famous political couple Mary Matalin and James Carville? They all own original art created by Liette Marcil, the respected and well known ceramic tile muralist. Lizzie Lu’s Island Retreat commissioned 10 original address plaques featuring images inspired by the names of each of the cottages to identify each one.
Here, Liette works on the sketch for Groovy Gecko Cottage. Each name and number plaque was painted by hand with the artist and the owner working closely together to bring this amazing project to life! Her works have hung in the Museum School in Boston and numerous galleries in New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. but Lizzie Lu’s has hung each of these signed originals outside of each cottage for guests and passersby to enjoy!
