St Augustine Local Talent
Myrna Irizarry is a local talent. An artist of many styles including Trompe L’oeil, she currently lives in Green Cove Springs Florida. She is married and a mother of three adult children. She was born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and moved with her family to NYC at the age of 4.
Myrna's artistic journey began as a young child while living in NYC. Her father took note of her special talents and at the age of 5 supplied her with her very own oil paints, brushes and practice canvas. Through her father’s gentle guidance and much encouragement, Myrna took every opportunity to be creative and bring the beauty she saw in everything around her on to canvas.
Myrna is a self-taught artist who believes that every new experience is an invitation to learn and be creative. She has commissioned work throughout New York, Florida and Puerto Rico. Most of her work is oil on canvas but also enjoys painting using acrylics as well as watercolor. Her favorite subject matter is nature with a special interest in seascapes.
