Patsy Disney 

 

Painting by Patsy Disney

 

Patsy Disney’s multi-media artwork expresses her love of flowers. She uses vintage love letters, maps, books and other ephemera with delightful results.

 

 

Janet Bird Fuller

 

 

“Off The Hook” Steam Punk creation with recycled materials by Janet Bird Fuller

 

Janet Bird Fuller is a 3D, steam punk & industrial assemblage artist who creates all of her work from found objects  and reclaimed material (often found in curbside trash).  Her specialty is STEAMPUNK, a form of Victorian science fiction and fantasy that speculates, “What would the past look like if the future had happened sooner?”  It involves contraptions constructed from lots of gears, gadgets and gizmos.

 

 

Laura Kinnemon 

 

Collage using watch faces and other memorabilia by Laura Kinnemon

 

 

Working in collage and assemblage, Laura Kinnemon’s take on portraits and animals, using found items in such a different way, is unique. Each individual item tells a story, and contributes to the final piece.

 

Teala Krapfl 

 

 

“El Guacamole” by Teala Krapfl

 

 

Teala Krapfl paints in oils and also draws using graphite on paper. She tries to bring a nostalgic feel to her art, to give the a sense that her characters have lived. They feel familiar and inviting, but there’s some room left for the viewer to fill in their story.

 

Yolanda Luce

 

 

Scene painted by Yolanda Luce

 

 

Yolanda Luce’s art is driven by her faith, her family and love of photography, music and travel. Each painting is a moment in time, snapped in her mind’s eye.

 

 

Doc McKinney

 

Beach Scene by Doc McKinney

 

Ft. Pierce native, Doc, tells the story of his life (car racing, surfing) and of his town. The beach, the racetrack, his travels and the history of Ft Pierce are all elegantly portrayed in his paintings.

 

 

 

Sheila Parcell

 

Artwork by Sheila Parcell

 

 

Sheila Parcell is a native Floridian, who uses mixed media to reflect her deep faith in honoring the messy nature of being human and being woman. Her intent is to use her art (and humor) to lift women up.

 

 

 

Rita Polizzi

 

Painting on board by Rita Polizzi

 

 

Rita Polizzi is an acrylic painter who captures the tropical landscapes and diverse wildlife of the Treasure Coast. Working both on canvas and reclaimed wood, her paintings have a realistic style with a hint of whimsy.

 

 

 

Diane Stark Kennedy

 

 

 

Stained Glass Objects by Diane Stark Kennedy

 

Diane Stark Kennedy creates original design glass panels, lamps, suncatchers and boxes. She is ‘Naturally Inspired’ (the apropos name of her business) by the wealth of sea life and wildlife in Florida.

 

 

 

Lora Yakimov

 

 

Sculpture by Lora Yakimov

 

 

Lora Yakimov casts and welds pewter sea life into 3-D freestanding and wall sculptures. The transparency of her unique fossil figures symbolize the twin truths of outer decay and simultaneous inner renewal. “…for the things which are seen are temporal, but the unseen is eternal”

 

“Balloons in Water” by Lori Yakimov

 

Lora Yakimov uses the symbolism of playful balloons as a metaphor for life (fragile transparent spheres filled with breath, water, light and color)
