Clyde Mann, January Featured Artist at Studios of Cocoa Beach


Clyde Mann, January Featured Artist at Studios of Cocoa Beach

The Studios of Cocoa Beach announces the featured artist for the month of January: Clyde Mann.  Clyde’s  paintings reflect her eye for the beauty around us, whether the subject is a foggy day, boats and birds or balloons  after the part is over.  Following her previous careers in hairdressing, then a Masters in Computer Science and working on main frame computers, Clyde is now in her third career: Artist

Although she has always drawn and painted, and even took a correspondence class when she couldn’t find a local teacher, it wasn’t until retiring that she was able to really develop her creative skills,  Clyde is proof that the best things in life are worth waiting for.  Since retiring she been able to take classes but mostly learned thru doing.  After experimenting with photography and various techniques, Clyde has chosen to use acrylic paint and color pencil to create realistic depictions of the environment, inspired by nature, light and shadow

One of her prints “Beach Cottage” will be awarded to an attendee during the Studios Exhibit Opening on Friday, January 26,02018

Clyde’s work can be seen daily at the Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minuteman Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach.  The nonprofit gallery features 25 artists  and offers a full schedule of workshops in a variety of techniques for both adults and children.
