Roqué is a musician, poet, and visual artist based in a small town just south of Nashville, TN.  As a singer and pianist, he has written and performed  his own original music.  His debut album Seahorses was released in 2008, and he is currently preparing his next full-length release.

As a visual artist, Roqué works in various mediums to express ideas that are often whimsical and connect strongly with his personal sensibilities and passions in life.  His art often references animals and wildlife that exist in the natural world and transcend any sense of confinement.  In fact, breaking free of confinement, whether self-imposed or otherwise, continues to be a prevailing theme in his work.

Tropical Shade of Green is the blog of Roqué.  It is his own platform where he can express his thoughts on topics related to simplicity, mindfulness, healthy and balanced living, creativity, and social issues. This is his forum to share his musings with the world.

Come on in and stay a while.
