Julia Frazier, a Crealdé fellow in the Painting and Drawing department, lives in Orlando. She is interested in depicting the passage of time over landscapes, as captured in the movement of light and shadow. Daisy’s On Main is a charming building that occupies the corner of Main Street in Winter Garden. Its history is interwoven with the railroads that played an important role in central Florida’s heritage. “Daisy’s on Main” was painted on location and was shown in the the “Winter Garden in Plein Air” exhibition in March of 2009.
Lamar Spaulding, Anne Marie Colwell, Maureen Nagler, Meg Baldwin, Ann Higbie, Patrice Abufaris, Laura Miller- “Homage to David Reese” - Group painting. Donne loved David Reese's painting which was on a poster for a past Winter Park Autumn art show and divided it up and gave each artist one piece. They then had to transfer it to a prearranged size paper and paint it. Everyone's individual style shows up even though they all had the same picture to work from.
Evelyn has been painting for as long as she can remember. She is greatly influnced by her Puerto Rican Heritage and is inspired by everything from fine art to the culinary arts. In fact she co-owned and was chef at the restaurant El Coqui Mexicano, with her husband Rico. Evelyn’s frogs are el coqui, the native tree frog of Puerto Rico. Each one is different (there about 150 species that are very small…about ½”) but they all sing. Her love of nature inspires her work and with her love of painting and creating images she paints landscaping, cartoons, signage and abstract design.

Many artists refer to themselves as “fine artists”. I prefer to call myself a “fun artist”. Liz’s version of art emphasizes joy and fun, through the use of color and whimsical sculptures. These sculptures – her “ideaLizms” often take the form of social commentary and word play. Liz is a potter by training and for years,has created pottery on the wheel and out of slabs. She has created several of her ideaLizms out of clay slabs filling them with polymer clay fashion accessories, political symbols, food, art, and other objects from every day life. Her Website.
