MY ART: Cocktails with three of Florida’s most interesting emerging artists discussing their art and inspiration

Irina Grammatina

Russian-born Irina takes inspiration from her world travels to paint on silk her exquisite designs reflecting her love for nature, wildlife and wild places. Her elegant pieces of wearable art are true collectibles.

Agata Ren

German-born Agata is on a mission to create artwork depicting how human interaction brings about the endangerment of species. Her vibrant and unique work has featured in exhibitions and public installations

Linda Frost

Linda’s paintings closely resemble photographs and are often mistaken for such, however, she hesitates to label herself as a Photorealist. She feels that it’s the combination of her subject matter, the composition of her paintings and her process that separates her from Photorealism in the literal sense.
