Introducing our 2019 Artists

Larissa Flynn

L. Flynn ART  Charlevoix, MI 

Plein air, studio, and live event artist. 


“When viewing my work I invite you to get lost in the negative space and wander in and out of areas that are lost in translation. To stand still, take in the calm, breathe, relax, surrender, and connect....the same experience I have when I take notice of the subject I'm compelled to translate and share.”


Paul Andrzejewski

"Being an artist from Northern Michigan, I tend to meld the outdoors with a graphic style. I started at an early age after taking an oil painting class that my mother enrolled me in and that was the spark that created a life long interest in art. I eventually studied Graphic Design and Advertising Art at Kendall College of Art and Design which furthered my abilities in oil painting, print making, and several other disciplines."
