Stewart Maxcy, best known for his work as a Flagler County Educator, has
been a professional artist for more than 50 years. During his educational
career, his talent as an artist was somewhat behind the scenes and unknown
to many, However, his refocus on his art, after retiring, has created a new
awareness. Stewart has done art for screen printing, murals, advertising,
book illustrations, and more for over 50 years. His ocean inspired sea life
paintings have been seen in galleries, private homes and businesses and sold
internationally. His choice of canvases has changed in the past few years as
he turned to using "retired surfboards" as canvas to create unique fine art.
Not only do his paintings make a statement indicating a love of he surf and
sea, but old surfboards never decompose in our landfills. By using them as
fine art, it makes a positive environmental statement.
