MARIA ONNI

Her intentions to create a special and authentic souvenir that visitors
could take home made her think about driftwood and the idea of recycling.

It felt like magic when one day on the beach looking for driftwood,
one piece in particular spoke to her—she saw a face there,
as if this piece was talking to her. She couldn’t stop creating thereafter. For more click here: MARIA ONNI

Created in 2012.
A concept inspired by the colors of the sea, the beach finds and my life in Aruba.

Ever stroll down the beach and find something pretty? something you want to take home?
I do. All the time. And I am lucky because I am surrounded by the most beautiful beaches.
My favorite things are tumbled glass and smooth stones which I take home and play with, turning them into Balancing beach Bums and Candle holders, and I have so many more ideas. Aruba's nature inspires me all the time.

I am a Glass Artist & Jewelry Designer. From a family of artists and musicians, with art in my blood I explore different materials and techniques. In 2009 I found the Murano Glass and got hooked on it. With my torch I feel like I’m painting with glass though the flames. A different type of art was born inside of me when I discovered the beauty of the Sea Glass. At this moment glass is a way to express myself, my passion and Love = My ART.

She has studied design and development of computer programs, but during the last year, has started to develop another (and more fun) way of expressing her creativity by designing artisan jewelry, after taking a short workshop on fashion design. Her work stands out, because she tries to make her pieces by hand in a sustainable way by using different materials, like her homemade clay, reusing CDs and DVDs or collecting Aruba’s sea glass. Almost all of her collection is inspired by Aruba and completely handmade in Aruba.

In the offer of souvenirs little attention paid to the cultural heritage of Aruba, in my opinion.
As a passionate maker of miniature model dollhouses I have therefore decided in 2011 to make miniature Aruban Cunucu houses of clay. My miniature Cunucu houses are based on existing traditional houses of Aruba. I make the Cunucu in two sizes 1: 50 and 1: 100. The Cunucu's are available in all common colors in Aruba except for the Cunucu house of Parke Nacional Arikok, which I only make in its original white color.

Although she designs various objects, she prefers glass beads necklaces with a combination of warm tropical colors and recurring patterns. ‘Lampworking gives you infinite possibilities to combine colors and textures’, Marcha recalls. ‘My inspiration comes from a variety of sources, such as antique Venetian and African glass beads, or from nature itself. Animals and flowers are such great designers, all you have to do is observe and learn’. For more click here MARCHA HOOST

Whether I walk, ride, fitness or travel, I find creative inspiration all around me. The moment I am seeing, I am painting and gathering ideas and materials for my creative vision on canvas.

I take the entire idea into my studio, complete with shifting shapes and colors, shapes, elements, lines and texture, and translate it, with feeling and emotions, over time onto canvas. At this point it is as if the thin line between my art and myself is being erased as I paint. The passion, love and magic take over as I continuously look for the extraordinary in the ordinary. 

I usually work on several paintings, up to five or six, simultaneously. Determining when a painting is complete is a crucial and difficult step in my process. I always allow at least a day to pass in order to look at it with fresh eyes and make the final decision that it is finished.

Through my work, I particularly enjoy exploring and experimenting with a variety of materials and techniques. I feel that by limiting myself to one particular technique and subject matter prevents me from completely exploring new artistic possibilities. This exploration is what enables me to continue to keep on growing as an artist and to keep my work fresh and exciting.  For more click here: GRACE ASHRUF PAINTINGS

CADO DE LANNOY

Ricardo de Vreede   known as   “CADO de Lannoy” born on 1985 in The Netherlands .

Growing up in Aruba since 1990 and raised by creative Aruban mother and Dutch military father I think I got the best of both. I’m better known as Cado de Lannoy because at a young age my parents split and since I stayed on the island with my mother, I pretty much went by her name. I have been into photography since I was about 15 years old. I was the one who always documented life with the friends and family. Growing up in Aruba, behind the white sandy beaches, picturesque palm streets and hotel lined streets, is an island consumed with lots of hidden gems and stories.

Using the signature CADOSBLA

Having always been inspired by Aruban subculture I love to show a different perspective. My photography consist of a mixture with selective coloring and black and white photos. Also shooting in full color. Using reclaimed materials for frames sometimes times, I like to keep it creative and new. Mixing my photos on normal prints, canvas, pvc and wood. Depending for where and when I love trying something and creating it into a whole art piece on it’s own.

The last couple years I’ve been going more serious and presenting at local exhibits and selling at local markets. Making collections based on Aruban Heritages that are being forgotten and presenting them to the public is having a great outcome. Recently finished courses in NEW YORK on photography and the “art and business” aspect of photography, to take the next step and go international.

Pieces have been purchased by local collectors, restaurants, collective office spaces and events
