"Enchanted Tiki Gardens" is a retro, mid-century modern, Tiki styled high-quality print inspired by the iconic Tiki Gardens in Florida, by the artist Scooter. All prints are professionally printed, packaged, and shipped. Choose from multiple sizes and mediums.

One of the most legendary and iconic Tiki themed attractions in the 60’s was the AMAZING Tiki Gardens.  In 1962, ‘Trader’ Frank and Jo Byars opened a small garden on about four acres adjacent to their Signal House gift shop on Gulf Boulevard in Indian Rocks Beach. When the gift shop burned down in 1963, they rebuilt the shop and opened an expanded garden in 1964. Eventually, following a 1969 expansion, the complex would encompass several gift shops, the south seas themed gardens complete with exotic birds and monkeys, and Trader Frank's Restaurant, on more than twelve acres. 

Unfortunately, in 1986, the Byars sold Tiki Gardens to a pair of foreign investors who ultimately seemed unsure what to do with the attraction. They sold it to Pinellas County in 1990. The buildings were demolished, and tikis sold, with much of the property being turned into a not so exotic beach access parking lot.  This piece is about celebrating Tiki Gardens in its prime and the legacy created by the Byars.  It was the inspiration for many other tiki attractions and even Disney World! I really wish I could have visited it when it was open!

I’m madly in love with your style of art. I like to draw and paint myself, but mostly my love for your work is about the Mood and Imagined World it represents. I especially like the pieces that bring back the 1950s with indoor and outdoor scenes with people or cats.  Your color choices are exquisite!

I'm a big fan of Tiki/Mid-Century art and yours has the particular "classic" look that I most appreciate.  I also should mention that I'm a fan of the bowling style shirts, and the embroidered artwork rather than the usual printed was like icing on the cake.

Your work is brilliant! It reminds me of my childhood and a much simpler time. Those Atomic Siamese cats are just the CATS MEOW!! Can't get enough of them and surprisingly, I really like the simple ones with just the cat sitting on the egg chair. They just beautifully represent the iconic 60's era. I really enjoy the live video sessions that you have as it is nice to be able to connect with the artist and learn about the inspiration for particular pieces. Looking forward to your next one. Cheers!

I have been looking at your artwork on Instagram for a while! I love the whimsical nature of it, the nostalgic feeling of the cartoons, and the MCM themes throughout. I try to make my home a unique and happy place for myself, my husband, and my cats, and I think your artwork will be a nice addition. The couple in "Love Seat" also reminds me of my husband and I, so it was the perfect choice! Thank you for sharing your work with the world!
