Art has always been a part of Molsick’s soul. She is the daughter of an artist and the mother to one, and has done some form of art for as long as she can remember. While concentrating on working in watercolor for the past twenty years, she has studied with many modern-day masters in the medium. Her work reflects a love of color and light, and her subjects depict her journey through life. Molsick employs different painting styles in her portraits, based on mood or subject matter. Additionally, she is a Signature Member and Secretary for the Florida Watercolor Society, and a past Board Member for the Central Florida Watercolor Society. In 2019, she was honored to be juried into membership with the Whiskey Painters of America, a miniature watercolor painting society. You can visit Molsick’s studio space, Wild Ibis Art Studios, located in downtown Mount Dora’s historic Renaissance Building.
Rigoberto Garcia-Linares was born in Cuba in 1947. He first began to explore and develop his talent and love for art in Spain where he lived for some time until he relocated to Miami, Florida in 1965. A self taught artist, Garcia-Linares reflects the intense recollection of his memories through his sculptures. His first steps in the art of sculpting was under the guidance of his long-time friend, Cuban master sculptor Tony Lopez. He has also taken part in workshops given by sculptor Freda C. Tschumy and painter Felix de Cossio.
His work reveals the artist's interpretation of the human body and reflects strength and vitality with sensual flowing shapes.
