“Kudos to Ms. Ausherman who has treated us to a delightful and informative exploration of the Caribbeanutilizing artists and their work. Seeing through the keen eye of the artist offers a unique level of enchantment leaving the observer transformed.” —KAREN A.HUMMEL, Fine artist and visual arts instructor

“What a wonderful book celebrating the artists that showcase the beauty of the Caribbean Islands through the stories of their beautiful artwork. So interesting that many of their lives were entwined. An enjoyable read, chocked full of information on the artists and islands. A must have for art teachers in their classrooms.” —SHARON POPE SWARTZLANDER, Art teacher, painter, jewelry maker, crafter 

“Displaying the academic rigor we recognize from her previous works, Maria Ausherman now offers us Painters in Paradise, a lively compendium of well-known, and lesser-known formidable artists who lived in or who traveled to the Caribbean in order to depict the splendors of that tropical topography. Her book is impressively regaled with color reproductions of their paintings, accompanied by pertinent drawings and a map of the specific environs to which each artist gravitated. Those of us who have visited or lived in any of the tropical islands covered, may now appreciate on a new level the works of these visionary painters whose artistic temperaments were enlivened by the rarities of nature which they sought to capture. We travel with the painters to the dazzling landscapes they interpreted and transformed into masterpieces. This book, itself an expedition, reveals in a fresh light each master at work in his or her chosen paradise. Ausherman showcases them perfectly with her own artistic brush.” —IRENE MITCHELL, Poet, editor
