Looking for a local artist in Tamarindo or nearby area

Hello all,

I am looking for a local artist in Tamarindo or any nearby area. Would like to commission them to paint something for us during our visit in Tamarindo next year.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thanks!

Haha, I love your use of the word "commission"; its very Mozartish.

Anyway, what kind of art are you looking for exactly?

Check out Carlos Hiller his studio is in Playa del Coco, north of Tamarindo. His underwater scenes are amazing.

You could try Ruth Ann at Casa Cook.

I am loosely interpreting the "nearby area" thing, but Felix Murillo - http://www.felixmurillo.com/ Costa Rican and an amazingly talented guy.

By local artist do you mean you want a Tico, expat or does it not matter? Many "artists" have moved to Costa Rica to work with their medium and try to sell.

Thanks for the comments! Keep them coming :-)

We are looking for an artist, Tico, expat, or otherwise would be great. Just looking for someone willing to travel to Playa Langosta to paint something for us.

We are looking for an artist who is willing to be creative. We usually like contemporary modern art, but are very open minded.
