Llewellyn Xavier is St Lucia‘s preeminent visual artist. Our visit with him and his wife, Christina, at his home and studio on a mountain ridge on St Lucia was a highlight of this week long cruise. As a most generous host, Llewellyn offered wine, snacks, stories, and a tour of his magnificent home studio. He also gave Lois the choice of any one of many of the art pieces on display in his home. His home was painted a brilliant white both inside and out which may be seen in the pictures. His art work is also displayed, by default, on the canvas he was wearing during our visit. He offered to change out of his work attire, and we insisted that his work clothes were fine. He will be featured in New York’s Metropolitan Art Museum later this year (2015).
