A Cocoa Beach Legend went to Tiki Heaven on Tuesday, 9/5/2012 of an apparent heart attack. Wayne Coombs opened Mai Tiki Studio and Gallery in 1973 and I couldn't begin to count all the homes and businesses his art is an integral part of. I spoke with him several times at art shows and in his studio where I took the photo below. The first thing you noticed were his big hands, wide smile and booming voice. I don't know of anyone who added as much color and originality to the Space Coast. The big man will be missed!
From his website: “Wayne Coombs began hand carving palm trees and driftwood in Cocoa Beach Florida over 35 years ago. Over the years Wayne has progressed to paintings, hardwood, stone, lava, rock, interior as well as exterior design from his studio in Cocoa Beach.”
