Indie-Folkfest 2020 Artists & Artisans

« Indie-Folkfest 2020

Arielle-Christine Art
Over the years of studying the masters, constantly painting, and learning new techniques, I developed a unique abstract impressionistic style of thick layers. My paintings represent landscapes, waterscapes, and botanicals, consisting of mostly oil paint applied with palette knife. By pulling the deep roots of the beautiful state where I am from, my desire is to create pieces that evoke a sense of serenity and natural beauty.

Betsy Best
For me, printmaking is a captivating process. The tactility of using tools to carve a piece of wood and then, the immediacy with which I can see the printed result, offers me a gratifying combination of anticipation and satisfaction; I liken the process to magic. I try to incorporate aspects of both the western and eastern approaches into my printmaking practice. As I work, I reflect upon my personal experiences and use the human form to explore gesture, pattern and color.

Porch Therapy
A native of Florida and inspired by her time spent in Charleston, SC, and Asheville, NC, Jennifer brings an aesthetic that is both practical and imaginative to her landscape design, event staging, and home decor.

Anayansi Jones
My work is fueled by my current state of mind or emotions and I often use representational images that have been distorted. There is no right or wrong way of representing emotions, however, I find myself drawn to the human figure and nature. A distortion of reality either through color, line, or abstraction of representation can be seen in the majority of my artworks. I am acutely interested in the essence of an object as shown through my abstract ceramics. However, with my paintings, I’m interested in the ever-changing landscape and the abstraction of how nature makes me feel. My work is about the moment. It’s spontaneous and often reflects the process of how it came to be as if it was its own being.

My creations are inspired by Mother Earth and aim to expose her magic to the lives of others. My art incorporates moss/lichen into coasters, jewelry, and wall décor, handsewn water bottle carriers, plant hangers, macrame mirrors, crystal jewelry, and terrariums featuring hand-collected moss/plants.

UnchARTed Art Designs
In 2016, “Purposely Creative” was founded by Yesenia S. Buisson. It became an escape for her art and a platform to simply share something she loved. Soon after, her sister, Jasmine Ramirez joined her to expand in creating a platform to share their God-given talents. In 2018, they joined forces in a joint venture and thus was created “unchARTed”. The art enthusiast sisters who had only dreamed of creating a platform and community/network for sharing their passion, have now expanded and tapped into uncharted territory. They were even featured in 1340 Art Magazine, an international art platform reaching hundreds of thousands of art lovers and collectors. Now, they have expanded their vision and are taking up the Orlando art community by storm. They continue to grow artistically and bring new techniques and eclectic styles of art to the Central Florida art scene.
