“Wave” by Marsha Bhagwansingh, Oil on Canvas


Within recent years, Marsha has explored various new materials with which to create her art, including coffee!  She offers classes in the art of coffee painting in Northwood and Lake Park.  She also is influenced by the exploration of the more spiritual side of life and the therapeutic aspects of art. She enjoys painting mandalas for relaxation and healing, sharing this artform in her mandala making classes. Marsha enjoys exploring new mediums and manners of expression, believing that self-expression, imagination, and the will to push beyond the norm are necessary for artistic growth.

Upcoming programs:


Mandala Art:  Mandalas help activate our own healing abilities for physical and spiritual balance and opens the gateway to our inner potential. They can be used as spiritually transforming and meditative tools. When creating and viewing a mandala, the left side of the brain (responsible for reasoning and problem solving) rests, creating a shift into a relaxed state of inner clam.



“Coffee Flower” by Marsha Bhagwansingh, Coffee on Watercolor Paper




The Art of Coffee Painting:  Centuries ago, when coffee started to be widely used in Europe, artists who had been influenced by the Chinese tradition of painting with tea, began to experiment with coffee as a painting medium. Today, coffee art expressions are created out of something seemingly ordinary, while presenting the delicacy of watercolors with a soothing muted palette and an unmistakable aroma with which to create art.



Calligraphy by Marsha Bhagwansingh


Calligraphy:  The ancient art of Calligraphy is still alive today and has drawn many to its skillful letterform expression of written communication. Calligraphers give writing a visual life with which to impress upon the reader, a more meaningful and eloquent message.

Manny Jomock’s “Breakfast at Cafe Bleu”




Manny graduated from Monmouth College with a degree in art education. After a short tour as a Navy photographer, he taught underprivileged children in social service and recreational programs in New Jersey, Maryland and Maine. As Manny later studied watercolors with Pat Dews and Sally Brandenburg, he developed his artistic style of plein air painting through his involvement with the Plein Air Painters of the Jersey Coast. Manny was influenced by watercolor masters such as Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, David Curtis and Joseph Zbukvic as well as many artists he studied under. In 2006 he started his career as a professional artist under the name “MannyJArt”.



Manny retired from the USPS in 2008, sold his home in NJ, and with his wife bought an RV to tour the country. Along the way, Manny painted with artists and joined art groups in San Antonio, Maine, Ontario and Delray Beach. After four and a half years of RVing, Manny and his wife settled in Boynton Beach in the winter and Mt. Desert Island and Bar Harbor, Maine in the summer.



Manny says, “The attempt to capture in my paintings how light affects the color, forms, atmosphere and mood found outdoors on site, becomes an alluring challenge to me. Watercolor’s transparency, subtle and gentile effects can produce a creative expression that’s unique and captivating.”



Manny now teaches watercolor for the Palm Beach County Adult Ed Program and is a faculty member of the Delray Art League. He also teaches privately, individuals and small groups for beginning and intermediate watercolor painting. His paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom. He exhibits regularly in Florida and Maine. He is a member of Florida Watercolor Society, Plein Air Palm Beach, Delray Art League, Watercolor Society of America, International Plein Air Painters and several other art societies.
