Jose’s passion for sculpting started as a young boy when he would use the extra dough from his mother’s cooking to sculpt. He also loved to run outside when it was raining to make the mud, his “clay”, into animal figures and play with them until they became too dry and crumbled. Although he had no formal training, he has been drawn to sculpting because of his inner need to create.
He followed his passion for art while workign at a Fine Art Foundry where he continued to hone is artistic skills. He was inspired while working with many talented artists. “I love the feelings of freedom and joy that I get during the process and completion of a hummingbird sculpture.”

Hemingway Days in Key West provide the perfect opportunity to meet and artist who is very connected to the history of the Hemingway home. Meet the artist Tripp Harrison, watch him paint in the gallery and view the largest collection of his originals available for purchase into your private collection.
Tripp Harrison was raised in South Florida and there developed a love for the tropical beauty of warm climates. At the age of nineteen, while attending business school in Atlanta, he discovered a passion for painting and began to pursue it as a career. The paintings by Tripp Harrison reflect a quality of peacefulness. Working diligently, he developed a style that conveyed a kind of serenity that would become his signature in artwork.
Introduced to the Bahamas in the eighties, his work began to incorporate the lush tropical foliage and the brightly colored houses dotting the landscapes of places such as Hope Town, Harbour Island and Man-O-War Cay. Tripp quite simply fell in love with the Bahamas. Like many others attracted to tropical areas, Tripp senses a calmness about the islands that calls him back time and again to gather new subject matter.
The quality of artwork by Tripp Harrison is unfailing. Coupled with his creative ability to capture the beauty and the romance of nature, Tripp has demonstrated a relentless pursuit for excellence in everything he has attempted. His work reflects an extraordinary power of observation. The subtlest nuances of light and color are captured on canvas by an analytical eye and sensitive imagination. Tripp’s love and talent for art was kindled in his early teens by his beloved grandfather, Frank Tarlowski, who emigrated from Europe to become a noted American artist. Tripp’s study of the life and work of Andrew Wyeth has also been a strong influence. Tripp credits hard work and perseverance for his abilities but also a keen eye and a constant study of things around him.
