Who Is Isabelle?

Isabelle Ellen Sutton was an artist born in Ontario, Canada in 1928. She came to Tarpon Springs with Allen Leepa in 1983 and opened a downtown gallery. As a weaver and sculptor, Isabels very interested in supporting area artists, with whom she collaborated to create decorative work to sell in the gallery. We lost this special woman too soon, Isabelle passle waed away in 2006 at the age of 78. In honor of her synergetic approach, LRMA named the museum store after her.

Isabelle's Museum Store is dedicated to the spirit of Isabelle Sutton and the mission of the museum she so loved. We seek out the best of area artists' work and honor her interest in textiles with a boutique corner highlighting area fiber artists. "Isabelle's Selects, 'the title of this web page, lists items we think Isabelle would have enjoyed and would want to share with you. When you think of that special someone, think of Isabelle's Museum Store as your first stop to find just the right unique gift including items from the Tampa Bay area's talented artists. Isabelle would approve.

Isabelle's Museum Store is open during regular museum hours, so make it part of your LRMA experience. Just dropping by to check out the store? Come on in, there is no charge.
