Art and Music of The Bahamas www.EddieMinnis.com


Hi, I'm Eddie Minnis, and I'm a Bahamian artist and songwriter. The Bahamas is a beautiful archipelago with a culture of its own. As artists, my family and I try to capture some of this and share it with others through painting and music.

I paint exclusively with a palette knife with oil on canvas. I am primarily a landscape artist, however due to my background in architecture, my paintings often feature the quaint colonial structures of our islands. Since 1990, I've been living in North Eleuthera, so many of my paintings feature scenes of Eleuthera and Harbour Island.

My daughters, Nicole and Roshanne, who are both portrait artists, try to capture the natural dignity of the people of the Bahamas as they accomplish their everyday activities. Nicole's figures in oil on canvas are vivid and lifelike. Roshanne is drawn to our shimmering, crystal clear waters, and she also paints in soft pastels. Her husband, Ritchie Eyma, (at ritchieeyma.com) is also an artist, and has an exciting, impressionistic style.

I have been writing songs about daily life in the Bahamas for over 30 years, most of them with a humorous, satirical side to them. I have also had a 10-year career as a cartoonist. My art attempts to capture the beauty of Jehovah God's creation, and my music and cartoons incorporate the lessons for life that He reveals in the Bible.

My family and I hope that through our work you can get a small taste of the incredible beauty of our islands and the rich heritage of our people.

Come and enjoy!
