“It was never my intention to be an artist. When we purchased the first Poached there was art on the walls. That is, until the night before we closed on the restaurant, in that small window of time the previous artist and the previous owner had an argument that resulted in startlingly bare walls. So I stayed up all night New Years Eve 2010 painting frantically. My intention was still to commission an artist, however, customers liked the paintings I had created, many offered to purchase them. Creating new pieces became a game, then an obsession, and now it is my clarity. Painting is how I relax, how I vent, how I stay sane. I cannot imagine not painting now that I have started.”
All of the paintings in Poached are original works of art created by the owner Brandi Lostracco. She is known for her bright, colorful, large scale, acrylic paintings. Every painting in the restaurants are available for purchase, and can be delivered free of charge within the local area. (We do not offer shipping) Custom paintings are also available if you are looking for a special one of a kind piece. To commission a custom painting contact Brandi @ (239) 298-9683 and set up a consultation.
