Janet Bird Fuller

 

 

“Off The Hook” Steam Punk creation with recycled materials by Janet Bird Fuller

 

Janet Bird Fuller is a 3D, steam punk & industrial assemblage artist who creates all of her work from found objects  and reclaimed material (often found in curbside trash).  Her specialty is STEAMPUNK, a form of Victorian science fiction and fantasy that speculates, “What would the past look like if the future had happened sooner?”  It involves contraptions constructed from lots of gears, gadgets and gizmos.

 

 

Laura Kinnemon 

 

Collage using watch faces and other memorabilia by Laura Kinnemon

 

 

Working in collage and assemblage, Laura Kinnemon’s take on portraits and animals, using found items in such a different way, is unique. Each individual item tells a story, and contributes to the final piece.

 

Teala Krapfl 

 

 

“El Guacamole” by Teala Krapfl

 

 

Teala Krapfl paints in oils and also draws using graphite on paper. She tries to bring a nostalgic feel to her art, to give the a sense that her characters have lived. They feel familiar and inviting, but there’s some room left for the viewer to fill in their story.

 

Yolanda Luce

 

 

Scene painted by Yolanda Luce

 

 

Yolanda Luce’s art is driven by her faith, her family and love of photography, music and travel. Each painting is a moment in time, snapped in her mind’s eye.

 

 

Doc McKinney

 

Beach Scene by Doc McKinney

 

Ft. Pierce native, Doc, tells the story of his life (car racing, surfing) and of his town. The beach, the racetrack, his travels and the history of Ft Pierce are all elegantly portrayed in his paintings.

 

 

 

Sheila Parcell

 

Artwork by Sheila Parcell

 

 

Sheila Parcell is a native Floridian, who uses mixed media to reflect her deep faith in honoring the messy nature of being human and being woman. Her intent is to use her art (and humor) to lift women up.

 

 

 

Rita Polizzi

 

Painting on board by Rita Polizzi

 

 

Rita Polizzi is an acrylic painter who captures the tropical landscapes and diverse wildlife of the Treasure Coast. Working both on canvas and reclaimed wood, her paintings have a realistic style with a hint of whimsy.

 

 

 

Diane Stark Kennedy

 

 

 

Stained Glass Objects by Diane Stark Kennedy

 

Diane Stark Kennedy creates original design glass panels, lamps, suncatchers and boxes. She is ‘Naturally Inspired’ (the apropos name of her business) by the wealth of sea life and wildlife in Florida.

 

 

 

Lora Yakimov

 

 

Sculpture by Lora Yakimov

 

 

Lora Yakimov casts and welds pewter sea life into 3-D freestanding and wall sculptures. The transparency of her unique fossil figures symbolize the twin truths of outer decay and simultaneous inner renewal. “…for the things which are seen are temporal, but the unseen is eternal”

 

“Balloons in Water” by Lori Yakimov

 

Lora Yakimov uses the symbolism of playful balloons as a metaphor for life (fragile transparent spheres filled with breath, water, light and color)

Deborah is well known for her great love of nature. She gives people a glimpse of how animals live in the wild in a secret world, raise their young, court and survive. Her quest for nature has taken her from the Everglades National Park to Denali National Park in Alaska.

“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.

“Bathed in Morning Light” by Deborah LaFogg Docherty

 

 

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.

Deborah had two solo shows in 2015 at the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and the Everglades National Park’s Ernest F. Coe Gallery in the Visitors Center. She has received many national and local awards. She has illustrated two children’s books: “Woodcut Jill” raising money for the National Crocodile Refuge and “Rosie’s Song”. A fully illustrated book.

Membership affiliations include: Signature member of the Artists for Conservation, the Pastel Society of America, the Salmagundi Art Club, an elected member of the Audubon Artists, the Wellington Art Society and many others. Deborah says, “Looking at my paintings today, many people think they are photographs. I take it as a compliment since I’m a photorealistic painter. My quest has been exciting and rewarding”.
