MEET THE ARTISTS:

Karen Massengill
Palm City, Florida
Painting

 

haestuartoct2016karen-massengill-3

Painting by Karen Massengill

 

 

When she was very young, Karen knew she wanted to be a painter. Pencils and crayons were constant companions as her family moved literally around the world, which is where she was inspired. She earned a BA at  Florida State University, but was sidetracked by the demands of family and the steady income of a nursing career. Her husband’s sudden death in 1995 changed everything. At first a distraction from grief, painting and the childhood dream of being an artist reasserted itself. To revitalize her skills she attended workshops taught by world-class artists including Carl Dalio, Janet Rodgers, Jim Kosvanec and many others.

 Karen has achieved great success on the art show circuit, winning numerous show awards and being selected as show poster artist five times.

 

 

haestuartoct2016karen-massengill-1

Painting by Karen Massengill

 

 

Her painting “Summer Light” appeared on the cover of the Summer,1998 Watercolor Magic national publication. Prestigious honors bestowed on her work include Birds in Art (four times) in both watercolor and oil Arts for the Parks with watercolor entries in both the top 100 and top 200, signature status with both the Florida Watercolor Society and the Society of Animal Artists. Her work has been purchased by the Leigh Yawkee Woodson Art Museum as well as numerous corporations. Recently, teaching workshops and private lessons has become a enjoyable extension of her career.  Visit http://www.karenleffelmassengill.com/ for more information.

 

 

 

Joni Berte

haestuartoct2016joni-berte-3

Day of the Dead design by Joni Berte

 

“I believe that art is Food for the Soul! Self-expression is paramount to the artist and the drive to create is as impossible to stop as a runaway train. For the past few years I have focused on Day of the Dead art, and have developed a unique style (Lines & Micro-Dots) that is the hallmark of my pieces. While many of my Day of the Dead designs, particularly those found on my Sugar Skull masks, are typical of the genre, my execution is of the highest quality — especially in the areas of line detail and color”.

“I am currently working on Steam-Punk Masks, Mixed Media Assemblage Art, and Personal Shrines.

“I am an award-winning, Florida watercolor artist who loves to make people feel happy with my bright colors and up-lifting themes! 

I began art lessons at the age of 12 with the Director of Ford Motor Company in Michigan and then went on to study at Texas Woman’s University, North Texas State and Wayne State University. I’ve also attended workshops in Florida and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico”.

“In 1984, I began showing my work professionally at local art festivals. Today I participate in more than 20 festivals around the country, teach workshops as well as showcase my work in galleries from New York to Key West.  Contact me at:  stephpollack@yahoo.com Art will be available for purchase at the Stuart Craft Festival.”
