D. Biggie Art

Combining my love of biology and art has created D. Biggie art. I’m a classically trained artist, working in acrylics, oil and alcohol ink as well as clay. And, I’m a formally trained biologist. I’ve taught for almost 20 years but wanted to do more. That’s how D.Biggie was founded. I decided to use my art to help out. Living in Fort Lauderdale we have many species of concern that call this home. One of the ones impacted by humans is the sea turtle. D. Biggie art helps support sea turtle conservation my education and finances. As an adjunct professor at Nova Southeast University, it was a natural partnership to help support the Marine Environmental Education Center (MEEC) at the Carpenter House in Hollywood Beach. A portion of every sale goes to MEEC to help injured sea turtles and protect nests on the beach.
