Matthew Winghart Legs (Heart-Series)
“John Votel is one of the North County’s most versatile artists. His works have appeared in many local venues and publications like The Jacksonville Business Journal’s Book of Lists, 2011, The Islander, Beaches Weekly, and MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art).
He paints with acrylics, metallics and uses a flexible stone-like substance he invented called Flex-a-Rock to make ‘bas relief’ in canvas and wood panels. His works range from abstracts to photo real 3D-like textured works.
John has logged 20 years of experience as an artist for Walt Disney World where his work and designs have appeared in all the major theme parks.”

Artist Tonsenia Yonn
Tonsenia Yonn is a self-taught, mixed media artist whose love of her natural surroundings, organic textures and the unexpected combine to create an innovative and unique style. Born and raised in rural Georgia, she began painting at the age of 15 and credits much of this early exposure to the environment as a source of inspiration. She originally began creating artwork for a variety of interior design projects and used this background to launch her ﬁrst show after moving to Charleston, S.C. in 2003.
Since that ﬁrst successful show, Tonsenia has committed to her passion for making art and continues to evolve and experiment as an artist. She likes taking an original form and presenting it in an unusual, distorted and often abstract way. She moved to Neptune Beach, FL in 2006, where the natural beach setting continues to inﬂuence her work, as do her prior travels and love of using recycled materials. Earlier this year at “Arts in the Park” (Atlantic Beach’s largest Art Festival), Tonsenia was recognized with an “Award of Excellence” for her installation-esque presentation of her work.
Tonsenia’s newest show “Oceans of Dharma” showcases her ability to interpret her local surroundings, using paint, found objects and collage on many different substrates, featuring tributes to the natural world while incorporating unexpected nuances. Tonsenia’s creativity has always involved dharma, which is about accepting our imperfections, developing conﬁdence, helping others and appreciating our basic goodness in everyday life. Dharma, also referred to as Natural Law, simply alludes to a natural order of things within our lives, you will ﬁnd in her work a natural order exists however the resulting artistic expression may be as unpredictable as the forms she likes to create.
