Eddie Minnis is a Bahamian artist and songwriter, born in Nassau Bahamas on October 14 1947. He has been writing songs about daily life in The Bahamas for over 40 years and spent 10 years of his career as a cartoonist.

Primarily a landscape artist, he paints exclusively with a palette knife, using oil on canvas. However, due to his background in architecture, his paintings often feature quaint colonial structures found in the islands of The Bahamas.

Full Explanation

Eddie Minnis has participated in a number of group shows over the years, at home and abroad. His paintings are in private collections in many parts of the world, including the United States of America, Britain, and Australia.

As a songwriter, he has produced some well known calypso albums such as "Der Real Ting," "Island Life," and "Mind Your Own Business," just to name a few.
