Meet the Artist - 2022 Arts in the Park Winners
I was born and raised here in Jacksonville and have spent most of my life here living near the beaches. I have been blessed by God who has given me creative talent which I am extremely grateful for. I guess you could say I am a jack of all trades when it comes to working with many different types of mediums. About eight years ago, as I was recovering from heart surgery, I was walking the local beaches and kept hearing the crunch of seashells under my feet and thought, what a shame. That’s when I realized that maybe I could repurpose this sustainable material and the results are what you see today. It started with using only the products I found and over the years it has expanded to the use of shells from all over the world. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating them.
Peter Schilling is an award-winning photographer based in Jacksonville, Florida. His interest is mostly in nature images such as landscapes, wading birds, and flowers. The majority of his photos are of local scenes, but some are from his travels elsewhere in the United States, Asia, Europe, and Central America. He specializes in state-of-the-art metal prints. This is a new technology in which photographic images are transferred onto aluminum and given a clear protective coating on the front. This process intensifies and brightens the colors. People see this effect as striking. The three main metal sizing displayed are 12x24, 16x20, and 16x14. Larger sizes are available up to 30x60.
After 23 years as a speech-language pathologist, Lisa Manos began the path to make oil painting a full-time profession. She is a self-taught artist but has always appreciated and enjoyed honing her skills in oil painting and is happy to make the jump over to this new creative world.
Lisa has always been inspired by the beauty of nature through her extensive travels and outdoor activities with her husband and two boys. The sky and water are a never-ending muse and a favorite to paint especially since moving to Jacksonville Beach. From breathtaking mountain vistas to the serenity of the beach, capturing the nuances of color to bring a painting to life is Lisa’s passion.
