About the BRANCHING OUT featured artists

ROSEMARY ALLEN

ROSEMARY CLAIRE ALLEN

ROSEMARY CLAIRE ALLEN

Rosemary lives in Southwest Florida along Spring Creek where the mangroves meet the Gulf of Mexico. As a curious artist in Southwest Florida, she is inspired by the unique web of life she encounters! On walks through the uplands, fresh water marsh and coastal wetlands, she is prompted by her Muse to paint images that open portals to worlds of wonder and find words for those painted symbols with poetry. Rosemary hopes her work will encourage others to seek out their own conversations and relationships with the natural world!

In addition to creating her own pieces, Rosemary is also an intentional creativity coach, offering inquiry-based art classes to connect others with their own intuitive wisdom. She believes that by developing a creativity practice, we are able to discover the questions that lead us to our own path. Through her paintbrush and instruction, Rosemary’s classes demonstrate how to integrate movement, words and symbols with observations in nature.


Andrew McClure

Andrew McClure

Andrew McClure

Andrew McClure was born in Martinsville, Indiana, studied at Purdue University, and currently resides in Bonita Springs, Florida. The love of nature that was fostered by his early life in the rural Midwest has never left him. It inspires his work and in turn, his work enables us to contemplate the beauty and mysteries that surround us.

The pieces he has created using Tillandsia (air plants) juxtapose elements from nature and repurposed objects. He carefully assembles them for maximum contrast of their textures. Then, in the miniature worlds he's set in motion, nature take its course to accomplish transformations of shape and color caused by the growth of the living elements.
