Susie Shaw is a native local of Pensacola FL. She has always been active in art and has a Bachelor degree in Graphic Design and Advertising from the University of North Florida. Susie attributes her talent and love of art to her mentor and grandfather, Roy Best, who was a fine artist. He exposed her to art at an early age and uniquely taught her the gift of how to visually analyze her subject. Susie’s use of vibrant color and light in her art communicates not only the subject itself, but conveys a feeling or sense of season. Susie is expressive in other media as well.

Barbara's art education began in her hometown of Indianapolis when a teacher encouraged her parents to send her for formal training at John Herron Art Institute.

Thus began an artistic journey that took her through many states, to foreign countries and back again, and finally to Atlanta where she discovered
collage/mixed media and experienced her "lightbulb moment."

It also led her to serve as a founding member and President of the Atlanta Collage Society showing her work in multi-state venues.

Life would next take her to the Pensacola area and her forever home complete with a free standing studio.  The vibrant art scene and many artists' groups has been truly like coming home.  Her affiliation with Blue Morning Gallery provides a public audience for her work and an art family of talented peers.

Today, her art journal is filled with inspiration gleaned from all things external translated into collage/mixed media terms.  The idea is then joined with the internal creativity to form the impressionist and abstract collages she produces.  Her goal is to "create with collage elements a visually elegant story that is mysterious and makes the viewer yearn to search beneath the surface."

Vanda is a native of the Gulf Coast, where she lives with her husband, Frank.  She is a retired Art Teacher of 25 years (elementary through college levels), who is finally able to enjoy retired life and explore her bliss through her love of Art.  Her work has received many Art awards and purchase awards throughout the years.  Her work hangs in homes and businesses throughout the United States.

As a native of the Gulf Coast, I am inspired by the beauty and elements of our natural world and the wonderful blessings we are showered with on the coast.  Many of my works in acrylic and mixed media include elements of our coastline and nature.

I also am inspired by the colorful works of the Post-Impressionist and Fauvist periods of Art.  Matisse and Van Gogh have been great inspirations for the paintings and pottery that appears in many of my current works.  I am attracted to dynamic color and textural ways to enhance and show tactile feelings in my work.
