Artist Joanne Mclaren creates abstract and contemporary paintings in acrylic, pastel, and watercolor.
Inspired by the beauty of the southeast, I create seascape and landscape paintings that capture the movement and color found in the area. Plein Air painting is my new love, and you will find me painting outdoors with groups along the coast.

I am a full-time artist living in North Port, Florida. Much of my work is derived from experiences on my travels across the US and abroad. I love meeting new people and experiencing their culture even if only for a few days. I try to share the feelings I had in the form of light, shadow and gesture.
I moved from watercolors to acrylics then oils. Although I continue to work in all media, I predominately paint with oils. I paint what moves me. I am a shadow/light painter, a colorist, an expressionist, a studio painter, a plein air painter, a realist, an abstracter .... a bit of a schizophrenic (?). My choice of media and style are based on my reaction to a subject matter. When I observe something that creates a 'wow' in me, I paint it. I hope to invoke a'wow' response from my viewers.
I learn something new every time I study others' works as well as every time I pick up a brush or drawing tool. Blue Rooster Studio is in my home in Venice, Florida.
I create each quilt in my studio starting with design, fabric selection, piecing, and culminating with completion on my long arm sewing machine. Throughout every step of the way I pay attention to each detail! My artistic sense, passion for the process of quilting, and attention to detail creates quilts to add a touch of something unique and special to your home.
A native Floridian from the Tampa area, Terry Andrews pursued a career in music through 1994. Always having an interest in glass, he began to dabble with the medium first through blown glass and lamp work glass, creating large, flat and carved glass sculptures. His most recent work has evolved to include the use of copper and fused glass. The fusing happens in a kiln, then the fused pieces are used as accents on the formed, cut and welded copper structures. Some are decorated with lamp work glass to create more whimsical treasures.
