Hi, my name is Rochelle and I create Highwaymen style paintings of the bygone days of tropical Florida. My art is inspired by the group of African-American artists known collectively as the Florida Highwaymen. Even though I have a significant visual impairment and only have about 30% of my vision left, because of my impressionistic painting style and frequent use of bright, vibrant colors, I feel that I'm able to bring emotion and depth to my paintings. I hope that you enjoy your visit to my Etsy shop.
This is a scene from the long ago days of the central Florida orange groves in the early 50s.
