In 2001 Anita moved to Delray Beach.  Using her knowledge from theater school she created the iconic “Dancing Pineapples” mural which made a huge impact on downtown development for Delray Beach.  She now serves on the Public Art Advisory Board of Delray Beach and created the “ArtFans” campaign which gives out wood and paper fans at free events to promote good will and offer information about art in Delray Beach

“Calling” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

 

Edrian’s artistic talent was recognized at an early age and sent her on to the University of Florida’s New World School of the Arts. After graduation she worked as a Creative Director, designing web sites, original logos, business cards and posters for South Florida businesses.  She moved on to producing web sites for large corporations such as Sony, Pepsi, Discovery and Microsoft.  She became proficient in programming, usability and information architecture.  

 

 

“Secrets” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

 

Outside of the corporate world, Edrian illustrated many images used in books, magazines and shirts.  In 2014, she suffered the loss of a loved one and in looking for an outlet for her grief, took a ceramic class at the Armory Art Center.  She found working with clay presented a challenge and led to her creating unique sculptures. Her demonstration will show her evolution as an artist and how she applies decorations and patterns to her sculptures.

 

“Disappointment” by Edrian Thomidis

 

 

Edrian is a member of the Ceramic League of the Palm Beaches, the Wellington Art Society, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and the Women in the Visual Arts Organization.  Her sculptures are in many private collections around the world and in regional galleries.  She has won many awards for her work.
