Artists: Jan Vermilya & Liz Meeks
Jan Vermilya is a self-trained artist who has been expressing herself artistically since early childhood. She currently paints on canvas using acrylics or oil paints, but has done watercolors and other painting styles in the past. Now that she is retired, Jan paints on anything that doesn't run away (that includes furniture and murals.) Her items reflect her love of the outdoors and nature.
Liz Meeks grew up in New England and lived in various states before settling on the west coast of Florida in 1997. She is a formally trained artist who has studied at many art schools, including the University of Minnesota and the Chester Springs Art School. Liz considers her works to be an integration of Impressionism, American Abstraction, and Expressionism styles.
Display: Smaller Artworks by Jan Vermilya
During the month of May, you can view some of local artist Jan Vermilya's smaller works in our library's display case. See miniature canvas paintings so detailed you'll wonder how she did them, along with felted gift boxes and other framed canvas works.
