BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: VALDAS NARIUNAS
I grew up in the lush and untouched nature of Lithuania and established a deep emotional connection with it. I am a self-taught artist. Modern life is very stressful, so art is my greatest hobby and way of relaxation. Art has long been my passion and it means a lot to me. I like to create abstract, expressionistic, collage works that reflect my moods and thoughts. I really hope that art lovers will love my works as much as I do. https://valdoart.weebly.com
BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER: LINDA REYMORE
Linda Reymore received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from St. Mary’s College, Notre Dame, Indiana. She obtained a Master of Science degree in Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois while working for an advertising firm there. In the 1970’s after moving to North Carolina with her husband, Linda exhibited in a solo exhibition in a Kinston gallery selling a selection of her works from that show to a corporate collection.
Linda’s subsequent career outside of the art field was supplemented by volunteer activities in local arts agencies using her business, art, and graphic design abilities to market and grow the audiences of these organizations. Upon retirement, Linda returned to creating art with successful pursuit of exhibition opportunities in local, national, and international gallery and on-line exhibits and publications. She is a member of the International Society of Experimental Artists, Martin Arts, the Martin Artisans Guild, and the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance. Linda resides in Florida. reymoreL@comcast.net
