“Calling” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

 

Edrian’s artistic talent was recognized at an early age and sent her on to the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts. After graduation she worked as a Creative Director, designing web sites, original logos, business cards and posters for South Florida businesses.  She moved on to producing web sites for large corporations such as Sony, Pepsi, Discovery and Microsoft.  She became proficient in programming, usability and information architecture.  

 

 

“Secrets” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

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.

 

“Disappointment” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

Edrian is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Wellington Art Society, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Women in the Visual Arts Organization.  Her sculptures are in many private collections around the world and in regional galleries.  She has won many awards for her work.

“Waiting For Mom” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

 

 

Deborah grew up on a farm in Connecticut, surrounded by nature and began drawing as a child, copying her mother’s paintings of Bambi, Flower and Thumper on her bedroom wall. Since they were painted on the hall wall, her parents quickly provided her with coloring books, paints and crayons to encourage her creativity. She began drawing birds in grade school, winning awards at the school and painted and drew every summer and during the school year, often forgoing homework! She earned her college degree with a dual major in Illustration and Commercial Art. She graduated with honors and moved to South Florida where she has worked for many years as a graphic artist for The Sun Sentinel. She is currently a Special Sections Designer for the paper and in her “spare time” teaches at Old School Square in Delray Beach, does local workshops and demos.

Mediums used by Deborah include pastel, oils and acrylics and may involve an under painting for added luminosity and atmosphere. Each medium requires different procedures. With pastels it involves washes of color and turpentine. In oils she blocks out colors. With acrylics she builds on layers going from light to dark.
