About the Artists
Phil Fisher - www.philfisherfineart.com
Phil Fisher has been painting in Naples,FL in watercolors and oils, professionally, for the past 40 years. The majority of his work is done "plein air", so he has a visual preference for landscapes.
Jeff Fessenden - www.fezzart.com
Jeff Fessenden uses watercolor, oil, pen and ink and acrylic depending on the needs of the project. In the 80's he created over a hundred humorous themed cards, some of which can be found on his site.
Paul Arsenault - www.arsenaultstudio.com
Paul’s vibrant and widely collected paintings reflect a rhythm and pattern that
distinguish his easily recognizable style. His lifelong pursuit to paint contemporary life in coastal communities is enhanced by his passion for history and his natural storytelling ability.
Jim Rice - www.naplesclayplace.com
Jim Rice has created environmental ceramic pieces, including fireplaces, wall murals, pool tiles, fountains, animals and planters. His repertoire of functional works includes place settings of dishes, serving bowls, and decorative pieces highlighted by his lively fish platters which are oven, dishwasher and microwave safe.
Natalie Guess - www.natalieguess.com
An artist who loves working with her hands, Natalie Guess is a natural for the rare art form known as batik.
Tara O'Neill- www.taraogallery.com
The tropical palette of her childhood continues to significantly affect Tara's work. Although most noted for her vivid oil paintings, she has admirably proved her hand at drawing, photography, print-making, assemblage sculpture, carpentry, bartending, and referring to herself in third-person.
