image. She composes photo-collages and has portfolios in
several genre of photographic fine art. Her work has been
shown in galleries throughout the east coast of Florida and
have received critical acclaim.


Mr. Makela has traveled extensively which had a profound effect
on his vision of his surroundings. He became acutely aware of
lines, shapes, textures, color. Collage paintings formed in his mind.
He collects re-cycled matt and foam boards, paper and a variety of
other framing supplies. He never sketches, just cuts, shapes and glues
on plywood. The finished pieces are an incredible palette of colors and
textures that brings the cities to life.
