Art Exhibit Mother Nature at Southwest July - September 2009

Mother and son have joined in an artistic endeavor to present the exhibit Mother Nature at the Southwest Library July through September. The exhibit features mother Sheila Diamantaras's paintings and son Fellipe Behrens's photography both celebrating the beauty and moods of Mother Nature.

Sheila Diamantaras developed an interest in painting while watching her father, a famous scenographic painter in Brazil. At age 12 , she began learning the art of painting under his guidance. Besides painting, Sheila has taken porcelain classes and had porcelain exhibitions in Spain and Portugal. In 1990 she began taking classes at Calouste School to gain knowledge of new painting skills and techniques. In 1996, Sheila and her two sons moved to Orlando. Sheila continues to paint and teach painting classes.

Fellipe Behrens was born in Brazil. He moved to Orlando with his mother and brother when he was 11 years old. He became interested in photography and graphic arts while taking classes in these subjects in high school. Fellipe was encouraged by his instructors to pursue a career in photography and was invited to take photos of the high school softball team. Today, Fellipe keeps his dream alive by doing freelance photography works such as modeling, settings, sports, and learning new ways to be creative with a camera.

Don't miss an opportunity to meet Sheila and Fellipe at a Meet the Artist event to be held on Tuesday, September 15 at 7:00 p.m. at the Southwest Library.
