A long time art educator of students of all levels in the areas in my directory. I did not use "expert" in any the listed categories as I've not worked as an "artist" per se. My work is true, yet lively. I favor pencil, watercolor, pastels, charcoal, block crayon, mixed media, but can also work in acrylics. Clay modeling is my medium for sculpture. If you have a green theme, I'm there!

Hi. I'm Cindy Ann Lowe Davis in Apopka, FL. Creativity was born in my heart, and expresses itself through three different art forms: writing, in which my words become my paintbrush, digital photo editing/restoration, which arose out of my first love, photography, and photography itself, as I illustrate some my writing. Writing is one of the most fulfilling activities that I can do. It stirs my creative juices, and anything that challenges my imagination to think of different ways of relating something is fun for me! When I complete a successful story/article, it gives me a true satisfaction of knowing I have achieved something worthwhile. This last statement brings to mind my 3000-word magazine story (Florida Living) on Henri Landwirth and Give Kids the World, a non-profit “storybook” resort in Central Florida, whose mission is to give joy to children who are battling life-threatening illnesses: After publication, I received word that Mr. Landwirth was so thrilled with what I had written about him and his heart's purpose to bless these children, that he personally went to the publisher and told him it was the best piece that had ever been done on him. It filled my heart with a warm sense of gratification and delight. My style is different from many other writers whom I've read in magazines and newspapers, in that, I love to write “in theme” with the nature of the subject. I don't write off the top of my head, I craft a story. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to choosing suitable word combinations to celebrate my subject. I love to describe by painting word pictures: I take the reader with me on my adventure. I love to stimulate hunger to do, see, and experience those places about which I write. Lol...Sometimes that's literal, when I compose a restaurant review! :-D Or, if it's a people feature, I want my reader to feel he or she is becoming personally acquainted with my individual. A number of magazines and newspapers have published my work besides Florida Living magazine. They include Arts 'n Crafts ShowGuide magazine, I Love Orlando magazine, TravelHost magazine, East Orlando Lifestyle magazine, Muzzle Blasts magazine, Get Up and Go! magazine, Lake County edition of the Orlando Sentinel newspaper. My fields of writing include: human interest, people features, narratives of history and heritage, nature and ecotourism, arts and crafts, entertainment, reviews of restaurants and bed-&-breakfast inns. Memorable stories I've authored include, not only my portrayal of Henri Landwirth and Give Kids the World, but, a 2000-word cover story on visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom; a 2000-word cover story on the person and uncommon lifestyle of Steve Holland, a real Florida cowboy; a 1500-word story on the themed eatery, Rainforest Cafe, and its creator; a feature on the harvesting of alligator eggs on Lake Griffin near Leesburg with Ashley Associates of Tallahassee, along with the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission; a feature on rattlesnakes, from a heritage point of view; an entertaining trip to the Orlando Science Center, and many, many more. Seeking a writer who will enthuse the reader, causing them to go to, eat, or do what you promote? I pledge to do my very best to achieve the desired result. Please visit my photo restoration website @ sweetmemoriesphotorestoration.com to see my photo restoration work. Thank you. I have pdf files as samples of my writing.

Roby Braun: LinkedIn.com.....FX R.BRAUN on Facebook. Skills: Sculptor and concept designer. Exhibit designer and fabricator Conceptual artist. Traditional Drawing. Acrylic and Oil Painting. Illustration and Graphic Design. Digital illustration. Concept art for publishing. Book Jacket Design. Logo and Corporate Design. Scientific Illustration. Anatomical Illustration. Realistic Illustration. Cartoon Illustration. Fantasy Art. Horror / Dark Art Science Fiction Art. Photo Realistic Art. My experience as a sculptor having also trained in the art of graphic design creating illustrations for major publishing companies and private clients has spanned over twenty years. As a seasoned artist I am extremely versatile and have an advanced set of skills in Photoshop and Illustrator seamlessly bridging the gap between traditional art and digital art as the technology in the creative arts advances and render any image as a sculpture piece. My fees vary depending on the complexity of the job and the purpose for the art works intended use. On average I charge between$100 and $350 for a complete days work. For much simpler illustrations the price varies around $30 per hour....it depends on the job and budget so dont be afraid to ask. If you are a registred charity my services are usually free. Most of the graphic work you see in my portfolio takes anywhere from one to two days, including revisions and client changes. I always start with a concept sketch free of charge and work up to the completed piece. drop me a line if you wish, and I will quote a competitive price. As a designer and artist with over thirty years experience I have a passion for creating original works of art for private and corporate clients providing a truly comprehensive range of skills appropriate to the expanding and increasingly sophisticated requirements of clients seeking original interpretive design and works of art. I work reasonably fast and meet all my deadlines.
