In addition to teaching photography, he is also a sculptor and has been commissioned to create sculptures for several people and organizations around Florida.

Coffee Talk with Artist: Rachel Stewart

Coffee Talk with Artist: Rachel Stewart

Stewart is inspired by the markings of nature, the results of changing formations caused by the nuances of time and seasons. The content of her work draws from observing and interacting with nature and translates her memories into abstract forms.

Stewart primarily works with wood – constructing and deconstructing discarded wood pallets and gouging, burning, and painting layered surfaces.

Coffee and pastries provided.
