Island Hoppers Art
by Dan and Tracey
The oceans. The islands.
Where these elements converge is where you'll find Island Hoppers Art.
We're here to share inspiring tropical beauty while supporting the conservation of endangered species and protecting their delicate habitats.
Our art tells a story.
Stories of adventure. Stories of peace.
Stories of beauty.
Our art draws the viewer in.
Inviting to explore and stay awhile.
Breath deep. Relax.
Connect with the romance of nature.
Our talks shine the light on the joys of the islands including the music and the people of the islands. The real story behind the art.
To that, we share the beauty of the animal species and our social responsibility to preserve.
We're glad you have found Island Hoppers Art. We'd be very honored if you display one of our works in your home or office. Please follow us online or contact us anytime. If you like what we're about, please share us within your social circles. We look forward to working together in partnership with you in any way possible.
Blessings to you,
Dan and Tracey
