MEET   THE   ARTIST:

 

 

“Self Portrait On the Indian River” by Patrice Scott

 

 

Patrice Scott tells The Rickie Report, “I draw and paint from life, be it figure, still life or, most favored, landscape. My paintings are an extension of my seeing but broadly interpreted and from a vantage point enriched by those artists who came before me. To them I owe a debt. Seeing their work, as a young student, I felt a kinship and a shared passion that set me on a path toward expressing my own vision of the world around me”.

 

 

 

 

Her art education laid the groundwork for forming that expression, and influencing artists such as Van Gogh, Hopper and Hockney taught Patrice how to interpret what she sees. “But ultimately, it is the act of painting that has developed my own language of expression. Each attempt in a new direction, filled with discovery.That continually renewing journey drives the desire in me to paint”.

 

 

“Garage Cafe, Micanopy” by Patrice Scott

 

 Patrice continues, “I find the hot, bright colors of South Florida a palette suited to the use of pastels in particular, and my transition from oil painting a few years ago a natural one, as I ventured outdoors more often. The pure pigment, and their immediacy and tactile nature allows a more intimate connection”.         

 

 

Most recently, Patrice’s landscapes often feature the lonely, abandoned (and rapidly disappearing) buildings of ‘old Florida’. A push back at all that is shiny and new in this part of the world and further expression of the singularity of the act of painting. She says, ” I find similar subject matter wherever I travel, throughout Florida, North Carolina, and along the Maine coast, a particular favorite. I seek to connect with and translate these landscapes that I love”.

 

 

Always drawn to art, Patrice Scott began pursuing her formal education as a teenager at the Cleveland Museum of Art, copying the Van Goghs and Rubens, and the Cleveland Institute of Art, drawing the figure. She earned her degree in studio art and art history at the University of Miami in 1971.

 

 

“Groveco” by Patrice Scott

 

 

After assisting a gallery owner on Cape Cod and running a sketch walk at Cape Cod National Seashore, Patrice opened and maintained her own gallery in Kennebunkport, Maine. She designed a line of jewelry that was sold throughout the country and was featured at Disney’s Fine Art Show in 1978.

 

 

 

“Sea King and Little Pearl” by Patrice Scott

 

 

A return to South Florida over 30 years ago marked a return to painting as well. Today she works both in her studio and outdoors for plein air landscapes, drawing and painting in charcoal, pen and ink, pastels, and oil on canvas.  Patrice organized and ran a figure drawing group, known as “LifeDraw”, for many years, bringing it eventually to the Elliott Museum where it continues today. She exhibits and sells her award-winning artwork in juried shows, galleries and other art venues in Florida and throughout the country, and regularly donates her work and expertise to a number of charities and institutions.

“Abundant Life Within” by Maria Lentine

 

 

In addition to batik and painting, Maria also creates beautiful jewelry.  She is largely self taught but has studied and learned from very gifted artists of design and watercolor. Through her art she is able to offer different parts of her personality.  Her serious adult side is shown through her watercolors and her playful child side shows in her soft batik paintings.  She feels working in acrylics brings out her philosophical side which shows in her black and white series.  

 

“Snowbirds” by Maria Lentine

 

Maria worked and traveled with Club Med for five years teaching English and found that no matter what country she was visiting, the sunrises and sunsets and the tranquility of the tropical landscape were a constant and gave her peace.  Since then she has worked with designers and clients creating hand painted fabrics, murals, commissioned paintings and directing art galleries.

 

“Awake At Dawn and Give Thanks for another day of  loving” by Maria Lentine

 

After a severe accident, Maria’s painting arm was crushed and reconstructed.  She found that painting and jewelry making served as a healing method in regaining her mobility and motor skills.  She also discovered yoga was able to aid in her rehab and it became a transformative experience.

“Yoga and art are who I am and my intention is to continue sharing this with others.”

 

“Opening to the fruits of life” by Maria Lentine

Maria tells The Rickie Report, “I started painting early in life, using first oil as a way of expression, followed by acrylic and mixed media. My academic formation has been completed with many workshops. I use brushes and sometimes the knife. My style, once classic and realistic has been much influenced by impressionism. In my constant evolution, abstract and expressionism have opened a new horizon and they are now part of my creative path”.

“Those Shells Are Awesome!” by Maria P. Martin

 

 

 

 

“Nature has always been a source of inspiration, which since my childhood has brought me much joy. It’s limitless forms, colours, sizes, textures and changing lights, inspire and thrill me. Born in Spain I have shared my life between that country, Canada and the U.S. and this has very much influenced my work. Sometimes I add the human shape in movement. Subject variety is important to my creative soul and botanicals add color to my palette. I want to transmit the joy I feel in my creations and I invite the follower to use his imagination to share with me this sensation of harmony and beauty, produced by art”.

Born in Madrid, Spain, Maria studied Fine Arts and foreign languages and started painting at fifteen. In Canada since 1966, she has completed courses in Fashion Design, Jewelry making and Interior Design. She has also worked in the fashion industry and successfully created a jewelry design and manufacturing company. Her creations have been distributed across Canada and the United States and her work has been often mentioned in specialized, as well as in popular magazines.

“It’s Quiet Up There” by Maria P. Martin

 

 

 

 

Since 1991, Maria has concentrated her efforts and creativity in the fine painting discipline (oil, acrylic and mixed media), following additional Fine Arts courses at the reputable School “Mission Renaissance”, attending different workshops, as well as walking an autodidactic venue.

“Hold Me Tight!” by Maria P. Martin

 

 

 

A classic and realistic artist by formation, Maria is influenced by impressionism, using the brush as well as the spatula. She likes variety and abstract is part of her world now. Her love for nature is reflected in her work, where different shapes, textures and light are her sources of inspiration, trying to capture the feeling created by a particular moment in time and space. Her life is shared between Canada, Spain and the United States, which, no doubt influences her work. Her art has been commented upon and published in newspapers and magazines. She has been part of numerous exhibitions, Solo and Group. Honourable mention and a member of various associations, her paintings are found in England, Spain, Canada and the United States. Several of her works are reproduced and distributed by Ëditions Bégin of Québec.
