Art Classes & Commissioned Pieces

Should the beauty of Dominica’s natural surroundings inspire you to create, Secret Bay can arrange an art class with local artist Marie Frederick. Originally from Normandy in France, but living in Dominica for over 30 years, Marie’s painting style captures the freedom and rhythm that imbue the island air. Choose from pen, ink, watercolour, acrylic or oil pastels and translate your vibrant memories of Dominica unto paper or canvas.

Or, if you prefer to jump to the finished product, Love Painting allows you and yours to acquire a Marie Frederick original of your greatest memory while at Secret Bay. We provide Marie with information based on feedback from guests and commission the local artist to devise a vivid interpretation of your time with us.

Additionally, Secret Bay can organize a visit to Marie’s treehouse, where you have the option to purchase an existing piece. While in her creative abode, chat over a cup of bush tea and delight in the presence of one of the island’s most lively local artists.
