Sandi Levy is a mixed-media artist living in Aventura, Florida. She uses watercolor, acrylics, oils, enamels, inks, mediums, and ‘found treasures’ to create her palette, often combined in one painting! After teaching for 32 yearsin the New York City School system, she returned to Miami in 1999 with renewed enthusiasm for colors and subjects of nature: flowers, landscapes, animals, and seascapes.

A native of Michigan, Diane Lary has made her home in the Florida Redlands. Known as the Outpost Artist she found true happiness living amongst the natural beauty of her ‘Jungle Outpost.’ Working in watercolor, she paints tropical scenes, especially foliage and landscapes with rustic charm. Diane participates in a number of open air art festivals every year.

Terry Arroyo Mulrooney is an accomplished fine art photographer and painter based in Miami. Born in Venezuela, her first passion was photography with its spatial and perspective characteristics and chiaroscuro, the use of light and dark shades to add contrast or volume to artworks. Terry translates the images from her camera lens into the soft, ethereal style that only watercolors offer.

Miami Watercolor Society: Founded in 1974, the Miami Watercolor Society (MWS) is a volunteer, non-profit organization with more than 130 members and a mission to teach and promote watercolor painting. The culturally diverse society informs and educates members and the public with workshops, exhibitions, demonstrations and publications.
