ERNIE BOYETTE specializes in acrylic. Ernie’s work
About Ernie Boyette: I was not always an artist. I was a professional business type guy. Then in my 40’s I got bored and started painting on my kitchen counter. Like a child I got as much paint on my counter as I did my artwork…and then. I grew up and I got better. I knew what I had to do! I was going to paint Man Art! I paint army tanks, ships, airplanes, cars, no Bambi, no flowers…a few naked women. I paint railroad cars and engines, trucks and Pink VW’s! I do! Anyway…I just wanted to say hello…I now paint…MAN ART!…Just sayin.

D. MICHELE PERRY specializes in Watercolor & Mixed Media

D. Michele’s work

Michele is a watercolor, mixed-media fine artist and author whose artwork explores the connection, courage, and curiosity rooted in wonder as a daily practice, the beauty of the natural world, and the power of our unfolding stories.  Michele paints small and medium format lyrical landscapes, gentle abstracts, and works in florals and patterns on nontraditional found objects that blur the boundary between fine art, artisan craft, and whimsical illustration from her studio in northeast Florida. She can be contacted for commissions, collaborations, or other inquiries via her website.

KATHY PLANTE Kathy’s work

About Kathy Plante: Art has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Experimenting with various forms of art keeps life interesting and challenging at the same time! A background in fashion illustration makes me more ‘project oriented’, thriving within the parameters and time constraints of a particular job. 3-D assemblage, collage, and painting in oils are of particular interest, though mural painting tops them all at present. Working with the Art Guild on the town’s water tank was a joy, and I hope to have more such opportunities in the future.
