DAWN WILKINS

DAWN WILKINS

Nature is my parter in design. I print directly from natural subjects, pulling my impressions from leaves, ferns, fish, flowers and natural subjects. I preserve my impressions, called nature prints, on silk screens and use them to create my compositions, both in my mixed media prints on paper and in my textile designs. By adding drawings to my work on paper I create unique contemporary botanical prints and nature studies. As a long time Key West artist, much of my work is inspired by the flora and fauna of the Keys as well as from travels to beautiful places on the planet. My love for the world around me fuels my passion as a naturalist and inspires my work as an artist.

ELIOT PRESCOTT

ELIOT PRESCOTT

I create my artwork skillfully and meticulously using very high quality tools and material. Each piece is an original and inspired by my own spiritual growth which is why I have named each piece with a spiritual emphasis. The design in the grinds is where my passion manifests, I love experimenting with the different layers and directions each piece takes. Then as I step back and I see this holographic illusion moving before my eyes as I change positions while viewing it. Adding color to each piece changes the dimension and depth and allows the owner to customize their very own color palette to match their personal taste, or I can just go crazy with my own colorful ideas. Then to play with lighting is a whole other magnitude, watching the light dance upon each grind or changing the colors gradually to watch the piece come alive, so much fun! The artwork is ideal for both indoor and outdoor settings and the natural light changing throughout the day adds a unique quality like no other.

I consider my art as a moving target. It's here then it is there. It's surreal then impressionistic, not ment to evoke solely beauty as much as enduring wonder!

LUCY PAIGE

LUCY PAIGE

The Florida Keys hold a special place in both locals and visitors hearts. The never ending soft and surreal expanses of blue sky and water and/or the livelier tropical colorful images of people and beach are familiar scenes. My art celebrates these two unlike in kind visual experiences and their associated imagery with paint and canvas.
