Marilyn Dover Benson
Marilyn is British born and educated and after traveling extensively world-wide, now considers the beautiful Central Coast of California her home. A self-taught artist, she began painting nine years ago. She is the President of the six member Brush & Palette Art Group. She commenced staging solo shows at wineries up and down the coast and the feat of which she is most proud is selling twenty two paintings in one day at Firestone Winery! She is the recipient (four times over) of the Best of the Best Award at the annual Grapes & Grains Event in Santa Maria, CA.

Gregory Moni
When my beloved father passed away a short time ago, I found particular peace and solace in being creative and expressing my feelings through my art. I wanted to create the world I envision my late father must be seeing through the windows of paradise. Through my particular approach to the abstract medium, I wish to bring a unique sense of spirituality to my art
