Sandra Encaoua was born in Paris and is a well known and acclaimed artist in France and many other European countries.  She began painting and drawing as a young girl, teaching herself to mix several mediums until she had the prefect effect she wanted.  She graduated from a Parisian school of art.

 

 

Sandra tells The Rickie Report, ” Sometimes I create with watercolors when I want a quick expression of the moment, but I work mainly in oils on large canvases, as I like the transparency and vibration of the oils”.   Her semi-abstract paintings reflect Sandra’s love of nature and raw elements.  Her landscapes and portraits are a mixture of flaming red with sparking white and bright turquoise.  Her paintings infer strength, vitality and gentleness.

 

“Fragile” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra won the 2013 competition of Young Talent in France, was the featured 2015 “Artist of the Day” on the famous website Saatchi Art and won the 2017 French Award Arts-Sciences-Letters of the French Academy of Arts-Sciences-Letters in Paris.  She has just recently had an exhibition at the famous Kinor Gallery in Paris and will have another in Paris in July 2019. She splits her time between Paris and Miami.   

 

 

 

“Palimpsest” by Sandra Encaoua

 

 

 

Sandra’s works have been exhibited in the US, Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and France, to high acclaim.  Her subject matter is prolific and she offers classes as well as “paint parties” at her studio.

“Dipped In Red” by Lara Chapman

 

Lara Chapman was looking for a better way to connect with her local community when she purchased a camera two years ago, and began visiting local parks and attractions.  She found a profound love for nature photography and poetry as seen through a camera lens.  Lara has since written hundreds of poems and taken thousands of photographs and created the “Poetry Picturebook Series”.  Her award winning photographs are on display throughout Palm Beach County and beyond.

 

“Red Hot Lowres” by Lara Chapman

 

 

Lara finds satisfaction in watching her work come to life and does most of her own printing and framing on archival fine art paper.  Her photography is a visual medium for showing the exquisite beauty of nature in the world.  Her work showcases the treasures of the planet boldly and without reservation.  Lara lives in West Palm Beach with her husband, two children, one dog and four cats.

Jean Williard with one of her sculptures

 

Jean Williard has always loved horses, drawing them from the time she was very small.  Her mother who was a portrait painter who discouraged her from pursuing her art, telling her” you have to be great to succeed”. Jean became an academic, receiving her doctorate in Developmental Psychology, teaching as an adjunct professor and working with children with behavioral and developmental problems.

 

 

 

“Downhill” by Jean Williard

 

 

Jean’s family could never afford a horse, so when she received a graduation check from her parents, she bought her first horse.  Her horses became her passion.  Years later when her mother came to live with her, she retired from her profession and after her mother passed away, Jean’s daughter suggested they take an art course together.

 

  

 

“Chucker” by Jean Williard

 

 

 Once she had  enrolled in a sculpture course she was hooked!  She has moved from working with ceramic clay to oil based clay and has been winning awards for her sculptures ever since.  She is delighted to have rediscovered herself at this point in her life.  She displays her beautiful sculptures in the Wellington Galleries and the LighthouseArtCenter in Tequesta. Jean says “I hope I can share this enthusiasm and love for horses with you”.

Outside of the corporate world, Edrian illustrated many images used in books, magazines and shirts.  In 2014, she suffered the loss of a loved one and in looking for an outlet for her grief, took a ceramic class at the Armory Art Center.  She found working with clay presented a challenge and led to her creating unique sculptures. Her demonstration will show her evolution as an artist and how she applies decorations and patterns to her sculptures.

After high school, Stan continued his education at City College of New York where his interest in painting began with watercolors and oils.  He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in art.  He began his career in graphic arts, working for different advertising agencies and art studios.  He eventually started his own business which was highly successful with many Fortune 500 clients.

After retiring and moving to Florida, Stan began painting in earnest.  His passion was ignited into landscapes, portraits and many different subjects. He now lives in Florida in the winter and the Berkshires in Massachusetts in the summer.  He hopes everyone will enjoy his work as much as he enjoyed creating it!

“Loggerhead Taxi Service” by Amber Moran

 

 

Amber Moran was born on a farm in central New York State and learned to love the outdoors and the value of hard work. She and her brother raised and sold flowers and pumpkins which helped pay their way through college. Amber was always drawing or painting trees and animals.  Her parents were talented artisans who always encouraged her art and after her first visit to an art gallery, Amber knew that art was her calling.  Amber received an Associates Degree in Computer and Art Design from SUNY Alfred State and earned a Bachelors Degree in Studio Art at the University of Buffalo and worked toward a Masters Degree in General Education at Elmira College.

 

 

Her love of watercolors came years later when she began painting again when her children were small.  She stopped trying to be so intricate and went with the flow and had fun.  This led her to thinking outside the box and using ink to add illustrations over the layered and textured water colors.  She is influenced by the tropical setting in Florida and combines watercolor and ink creating a unique and colorful take on the coastal lifestyle.

Amber and her husband and children moved to Martin County in 2004 and are very  involved in environmental causes.  She is a member of the Bullfish Foundation with their Lionfish Program and creates and donates art for the Lionfish Roundup each year.  She works with the Association of Environmental Professionals and with different Sports Fishing Tournaments who donate to specific organizations.  She also belongs to the Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce and the Martin County Arts Council.  She has won many awards, is featured in local  magazines and shows her art work in many venues throughout Florida.

 

 

Amber tells The Rickie Report, “I’m in love with the vastness of the ocean, the mystery of the Florida canals and rivers and the peacefulness of the bush where the only sound is the palms blowing in the wind”.
