Photographers EJ Morales and Tammy Seymour capture the secrets of the ocean and its divine mystery. You’ll feel as though you have dived deep into the depths of the cold blue waters and are eye to eye with the wondrous creatures such as century old sea turtles, sharks and fish.

“Whatcha Doin?”, Painting by Tammy Seymour

 

 

Tracy Rosof Petersen adorns her hand built ceramics with clay seashells, seahorses, and starfish that are then glazed in a variety of ocean inspired colors and hues of the sandy beaches. Her imaginary clay mermaids can welcome any fisherman into port. Tracy offers a selection of vases, plates, nightlights, card holders and much more with a tropical inspired theme. They make terrific one of a kind gifts for that memorable occasion.

Julie Sylvester walks the hot sands of the beach to find unique one of a kind seashells that she turns into sculptures of ships and large vessels, mermaids, lighthouses and coral encrusted beach scenes. Her selection of seashells on beautiful silk twine will adorn your body and make you feel beautiful with a natural sense of wearable art. She turns vintage wooden boxes into works of art for jewelry or purses with ocean-themed images of applied seashells, driftwood, seagrass, and coral. She also creates with the encaustic art technique using applied hot wax or engraving with her wood burning skills to engrave and trim.

Basketry/Ceramic Vessel by Bonnie Bruner

 

 

Bonnie Brunner uses her talents to make unique basketry.  She patiently hand weaves naturally dyed colorful strands of sea grape vines, twigs, and twine which are sometimes combined with hand-built ceramic bases.  Each vessel has a personalized look, as her artistry resembles the waves of the mighty white-tipped ocean crashing against the hot sandy beach. They will make quite a statement sitting in your cottage by the sea.

Fused Glass Fish by Betty Wilson

 

Ocean creatures and the hues of neon colored tropical fish come to life within the alluring fused glass created by artist Betty Wilson. The rays of natural light reflect and bounce off the different species of fish she creates with glass.

 

 

Ebba Tinwin wraps beautiful sea glass with wire to create gorgeous jewelry for that special someone (and yourself). She selects the shards of sea glass that have been tossed to the shores of the ocean through the rough waves. She selects her palette of colors and choice of blues, greens, whites, golds, and turquoise and then polishes each one before wrapped in wires of silver and gold.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Herbert Brosky hand carves tropical birds out of found pieces of wood. His amazing talents of come to life in his realistic carvings. A retired dentist, he uses his intricate dental tools to hand carve the details of his artistic birds. He then delicately paints each one to make them come to life. His flamingo wears a beautiful coat of pink and stands perched on stilt legs, while the sea gull’s underbelly shows as if you are standing on the ocean pier watching them fly away. The sand piper sits on a rock of driftwood aged from the salt of the ocean.

Lori Axelrod's Multi-color Bracelet

Lori Axelrod’s Multi-color Bracelet

Lori Axelrod tells The Rickie Report, ”  My passion for color and pattern drew me to polymer clay as the perfect medium for my creative expression. The intensely saturated colors and the technical detail I can achieve with polymer clay, combined with the wonderful tactile experience of the clay in my hands that has me hooked!”

 

 

Mary Catello's Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings

Mary Catello’s  Handmade Paper Necklace, Bracelet and Earrings

 

 

Mary Catello shares, “Although my signature baskets are made in naturals, primarily palm inflorescence, when I teach I use many other conventional materials.  When working with paper, to create colorful vessels, I started to play with all the scraps. So, my love for color and my girly love of bling were the driving force and inspiration to a line of artistic hand-painted paper called “Painted Pulp”.”

 

 

Amelia Costa's  Fine Art Necklace

Amelia Costa’s Fine Art Necklace

 

 
Amelia Costa has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and ceramics. While exploring sculpture of the human form, she started making small pieces of jewelry to adorn her figures. This led her to design and make “human size” jewelry.  She tells us, “I like to work in sterling silver, copper, recycled glass and semi precious stones. Mixing colors, texture and shine help me create one of a kind pieces that will compliment the wearer’s personality.”

Irene Jalowayski’s Hand made blue glass with silver necklace and earrings

Irene Jalowayski specializes in fused glass and silver jewelery including gorgeous pendants, earrings and bracelets.  New in her line is a series of bib necklaces made from cast glass beads with matching earrings.  Irene cast these beads from ground glass in specially made molds.  The glass is fired at about 1400 degrees.  She tells us, “My pendants and cabochon earrings are also fused and are made with a lot of dichroic glass.  The dichroic glass gives my pieces a shine and sparkle that is enhanced by the silver findings that are used to finish them.  Each piece is different and one of a kind.  These pieces make wonderful gifts or gorgeous additions to any lady’s jewelery wardrobe.”

Deborah Kashdan explains, ” My jewelry reflects my eclectic interests…I like to incorporate metals, both new and repurposed, into pieces using stones or beads to augment the designs.  I often mix metals such as sterling silver, brass and copper…I like the idea of re-using old material in a new way.  Metal salvaged from old silver silver-plated brass trays and dishes are the basis for some of my work.”

Han Can Paint the Picture for You!

 Have you ever taken a photograph and wished that it could be a painting on your wall? Do you have an idea for a piece of artwork but cannot paint it yourself?  When The Rickie Report met Han and saw his portfolio, we felt a special kinship with him.  He can take what others want to express and transform it into a piece of art for your walls!

 

Han tells us, “I am a fine artist and mainly paint realism.  My favorite mediums are oil and watercolor.”  In looking at his website, one can see that he appreciates nature, enjoys landscapes and develops a still life that seems real.  When you see his paintings in person, you notice the smallest details, like the lady bugs on the leaves!

 

 “I get easily inspired by beauty of the nature and I love to paint what I see,” he says.

Han’s painting career began at an early age and he has not stopped since! He has an  inventory of over 170 paintings in various sizes.

 

Beach Scene

Han also understands the benefit of being involved with other artists in the local art community.  He is a member of the Artists of Palm Beach County as well as the Poets of the Palm Beaches.  

 

Ballerina

 

While many artists prefer to paint for their own muse, Han welcomes the opportunity to paint for others.  If you have a family photo, he can paint it in either oil or watercolor.  

Here is an example of a still life in which Han brought together many elements which his client wanted: the tarnished silver pitcher, white roses, pears and the family heirloom pearls. His technique gives it texture and the old world feel his client hoped for. Han developed this still life by using multiple photos and merging them into one.

 

Melissa’s Still Life

Han is also available for painting lessons, understanding that he is helping to nurture the clients’ abilities and not instill his style upon them.  Han’s artwork ranges from $20. to $1,000.  

 

Young Child

Han’s art is often seen at local galleries and competitions. To see his original oils or watercolors, you can make an appointment by calling: 561-741-34170 or visit his website: artbyhan.com   or  You can purchase Art By Han products on zazzle.com.  http://www.zazzle.com/artbyhan?rf=238300944889256265
