Sensitive to the struggle of threatened wildlife, and the relative impact of man upon the natural environment, Florida Panhandle artist Roy Calvin Eure creates artwork that is an extension of his love for his coastal environment. His work features both abstract and representational coastal scenes, sea-life, and the waterbirds found along the beaches and rare salt dune lakes of the Gulf of Mexico. “Painterly” in style, his figurative paintings most often include bold color, discernable brushstrokes, and clearly defined subject matter.
Holding degrees in fine art and interior design, Roy is both a former fine interiors firm and art gallery owner. Often commissioned by interior designers to produce artwork for their projects, his design experience has shaped the direction of his art in style, composition, and materials. Roy is the son of creative parents and he is a native of Mississippi. In addition to his love for coastal wildlife and scenery, the content of his work is shaped by formal education in art and design, career experiences, travel, and his former homes in multiple U.S. states and Costa Rica. Since 2009, he has lived in the Florida Panhandle near Inlet Beach with his partner of 27 years and their four dogs.
“I want my art to be pleasant, of positivity, and to highlight our shared connection to our magnificent natural world; to highlight the interconnected nature of all living things. I want to share my love for flight, coastal wildlife, and broad skies. I hope that my artwork will encourage viewers to pause and reflect upon our beautiful and fragile creatures, to possibly evoke "day at the beach" nostalgia with an ethereal coastline scene, or perhaps encourage calm and peacefulness with a breathy cloudscape painting."
