THE REAL BECOMES THE SURREAL
Kirk Marsh is an internationally exhibited fine art photographer. He is an environmental portrait photographer and digital artist. His work uses a strong sense of post production to enhance a cinematic transportive narrative. His subjects are engaged in their environment and action. Kirk’s love for humor certainly is seen in his images. His work can be seen in advertising campaigns, editorial stories and fine art galleries.
With a background in the performing arts and circus (he toured with The Greatest Show on Earth for a year...and went to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College as well as touring his solo silent comedy show around the world to over 53 countries) he has a style that is influenced heavily by magical realism and the fictions of our own minds.
The opening party will be from 4-7

Lisa Brown was born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay in southeast Virginia. The woods, rivers and marshes helped foster her appreciation for the outdoors, particularly the marine ecosystems and life so prevalent in her current art. As an adult, Lisa spent many family vacations fishing the waters of Sanibel Island. Lisa moved with her family from Virginia to Sanibel Island in 2005. She experimented with a wide variety of art mediums for many years and stumbled into painting glass about 10 years ago after rescuing several leaded glass windows from the trash. Her trash to treasure experience led to a passion for collecting and painting salvaged windows. She has displayed her work in several Florida galleries including Captiva, Pine Island, Sarasota and St. Augustine.
Lisa has been married for 22 years with two beautiful daughters and two beautiful Aussies. Outside of painting, Lisa loves to fish and enjoy the year round, outdoor life of Florida.

Steve Mullen has always had a passion for the ocean and everything living in it.
After discharge from the US Navy, he began an apprenticeship as a carpenter.
A few years later he was accepted into the photography program at the Antonelli Institute of Art in Philadelphia where, upon graduation, was offered a staff position and soon became a department head.
He opened Steve Mullen Photography in the mid eighties. His artistic talents attracted many national accounts which won him numerous awards.
Some of the assignments involved shooting underwater in exotic locations where he got to experience being one with the sea.
In 2008 Steve revisited woodworking by designing and building hand drums which evolved to leading workshops with the Wanderlust Music and Yoga Festivals.
He then combined his artistic talents and woodworking skills with his greatest love, the ocean.
His current work represents that passion.
Steve is an avid surfer, scuba diver, windsurfer and kayaker living on Anastasia Island, FL.
