Description Living in Belize, you are inspired by the music, by the people, and by the culture. Bob Marley was a big influence in the Caribbean. I thought that seeing Bob Marley as a cloud, or a haze of smoke between palm tree branches was a fitting tribute. I painted this on my balcony in san Pedro, overlooking the reef.
Alissa Reid, Belize Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Alissa Reid lives and paints in Belize on the picturesque island of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The breathtaking backdrop of the Caribbean Sea has served as a canvas for recent artistic accomplishments.
