Chris Carr

Chris Carr was born in North Carolina, but has lived in Orlando, FL for more than 20 years. He’s always felt a drive to create, and has done so via many outlets and mediums, but it was photography that captured and held his attention.

The search for unique perspectives that reveal something new in our environment drives Chris’ investigation of the world, his artistic eye, and his Puddle Reflections fine art photography series.

Robert Cornman II

has been doing some form of art for as long as he can remember.  Drawing with pencil or pen was his first love and passion.  

His paintings reflect a unique vision of movement and energy which is portrayed through a mixture of colors. They are created using acrylics on canvas and utilizing a technique of fusing colors to form different hues to produce a peaceful nature. Manipulating colors into movement through his imagination helps keep the viewer in a world between the fantasy of their dreams and true reality.

Sarah A. Jones

I am the 16 year old girl with turquoise hair and a heart made to live outside the cramped box of conformity. I am a free spirit with desire to dig deeper inside the infinite body of creativity. In the 2nd grade I began to sketch, mostly doodles but by the 6th grade I started drawing portraits and since then I've steadily progressed. At first I used charcoal pencils but after a while I began to experiment with colored pencils and lately watercolors, psychedelic designs and themes that help to explain my desire to seek spiritual knowledge. I live in Plant City and travel two and half hours one way to go to Blake High School, a Magnet school of Arts, in Tampa. My plans are to work to get funding to go to an art college.
