In harmony with ongoing eco-friendly efforts, Flamboyan On The Bay Resort & Villas recently commissioned “Don’t Litter” signs — made of recycled wood — to place throughout the property. 

The colorful reminders were created by local artist Allison Carey and installed by her partner, Jay Jacobus. 

Known as “Save The Day Jay” Jacobus is a skilled mechanic and all around MacGyver-ist. He earned his nickname for the countless times he’s come to the rescue of islanders with vehicle issues and other challenging projects. 

Allison’s mixed media artwork ranges “from abstract to realist” as she phrases it. Frequently celebrating island hues, her intriguing portfolio is available to view by appointment.
