Artist Koz - Green World Gallery

koz_artwork.jpgIn Key West - and in many other areas - he's simply known as "Koz," an unabashed supporter of all things artistic. He and his wife, Pamela, are the proprietors of Koz's Green World Gallery in Key West. In addition to a wide-range of tropical-themed art, Koz often hosts live music featuring singer-songwriters in the gallery.

Green Woman

She also has done commissioned work for trop rock artists such as the Rum Punch Bandits, The Yard Dogs, Hugo Duarte and Jimmy and the Parrots, as well as donating artwork to most Parrothead event auctions.

Jewelry - Island Style

Island-Style_Jewelry.jpgBeth Molesworth's Jewelry Island Style & More was inspired by many trips to the Caribbean, specifically the island of Jamaica. "We visit the Caribbean often or if we can't get there we will visit the Florida Keys for the domestic version of the Caribbean. On each trip we bring back new ideas, inspiration and native beads and shells for our designs. Everything you see is hand made in our southwestern Wisconsin studio."

Lyn Bezemek

lyn_bezemek_1.jpgLyn Bezemek, founder of the illustrious 'Cheeseburger in Caseville' festival in Caseville, Mich. has turned her talents toward the canvas. Here's how Lyn describes the process.

"We bought a home in Villa Borinquen in 2004, and I retired from Michigan Public Schools in 2005, moved 27 degrees south and pursued a new hobby. I ordered a beginners acrylic art set, some canvas, and an easel. I decided to see what was hidden in an unused portion of my brain."
