Artwork by Dana Axel


Dana tells The Rickie Report, “Using a “minimalist” vocabulary, I express my perception in a “visual voice” conveyed in a Hard-Edged Abstraction style. Predominantly painting with acrylic on canvas, my work is both non-representational and figurative.  I use collage as preliminary sketches for my paintings. Found imagery and forms are arranged, added to and subtracted from, until my concept emerges”.

“Billbergia” by Bonnie Wilburn


Bonnie Wilburn’s imagination is driven by her passion for self-expression through art. And her inspiration lives all around her! The flowers and plantings in her yard provide her with the images, while her paintings are noted for their unique style, elegance and technique.

“Red Fusion” by Bonnie Wilburn


Bonnie often uses a palette knife to create these vibrant pieces of art. Having lived in the Palm Beaches most of her life and when her health forced an early retirement, Bonnie was able to focus on what comes most naturally … sharing her enthusiasm for living her life through bright & expressive artwork. Bonnie’s positive attitude is infectious!

Painting by Dana Axel



Dan Axel tells The Rickie Report, “Early on, I was greatly influenced by my art professor, Perle Fine, (an artist in the Abstract Expressionist Movement of the 1950’s). She encouraged me to develop my own sense of style of Hard Edged Painting, in acrylics. The work is both non-representational and figurative”.




Painting by Dana Axel



Dana previously taught art in the Port Washington School District in New York. She shares, “Combining my love of art, and as a student of astrology, I have begun work on a series of paintings depicting women representing the energies of their sun sign”.
