Florencia Clement de Grandprey

Florencia Clement de Grandprey has been our favorite contemporary artist for awhile. She's local and produces incredible works. Oh, and she's ridiculously charming.  

Here's some of our Florencias starting with her mixed media work of Carmen. Here's Florencia with two Carmens (one is mine).

To learn more or try to get your own, there's Florencia's website but also, she has active Facebook and Instagram accounts.

With us, Florencia has stretched her wings a little and created portraits of each of our three kids.

Here's one of our girls shown back when she was in a gallery.

She's also done some cards for us. Want to know more?

Philippe Guillerm: Wood Sculptures

Our house is decorated with some fantastic wood sculptures done by a friend of ours: Philippe Guillerm.  His work is totally amazing. Technically, I can't imagine how he does it, the craftsmanship just astounding and the impact on me is thrilling everytime I look at them.

Sadly for us, he moved from Ft Lauderdale to Maine about a decade ago so we don't get to see him, his wife, and kids anymore. Still, we live with his sculptures.

For instance, there's one Phillippe Guillerm sculpture made as a small commission of Ed Mouse, the Educational Mouse.
