A while back I wrote about the differences between paper-and-ink calligraphic arts and graphic design (you can read it here).  Although several types of visual arts may overlap, they are usually quite distinct from each other.

Over the past few years I’ve gotten to know a few professional, local artists that have been featured around the Tampa Bay area.

Linda and Bill Renc – The Painted Fish Gallery, Dunedin, FL (fine art pieces, also classes)

Robin Borland – ArtRobStudios and The Twisted Leash (fine art pieces, commissioned pet portraits! So cute!)

Ellen Hack of Brides N Blooms Designs – (original paintings and fine art pieces)

Christina Baldwin-Bascom – CStarArt  (murals, signage, “large-scale” commissioned work)

Looking to have some specific artwork done? Hope these folks can help! 🙂
