Val Arie

Besides being very talented, Val has been an inspiration. Her spirit shines with determination as she works through her medical/physical trials and her art continues to evoke deep peaceful feelings in me. Some of us would have given up in her situation but Val has “pulled up her britches” and continued to create wonderful art.


Rich Franco

Rich is talented in photography, photo software manipulation and printing (he owned a printing company in his past). But he is also generous with his time and knowledge. I am aware of Rich helping more than one FAA member, as well as myself, by sharing his time, talent and wisdom.



Jaroslaw Blaminsky

He’s an amazing photographer. He lives in Poland but speaks perfect English. He does many different styles of photographic work but does it all wonderfully. He does still life, travel, landscape, animals, architecture etc., and the quality of his work is truly outstanding. He also does book covers so his work has appeared on books all over the world.


Fraida Gutovich

She is an exceptional photographer with a keen eye for as well as an adoration for nature and animals. She is above and beyond kind hearted, considerate and a wonderful family person. She is quick to jump in and help others without question. A very deserving woman.


Randy Rosenberger

I have known Mr. Rosenberger through involvement in the popular group which he hosts, “Wisconsin Flowers and Scenery” on Fine Art America. I deeply appreciate the God-given talents he uses to bless people and for his years of dedicated service to humanity. He is a retired teacher, having taught for 35 years, and is an avid gardener and award-winning photographer. Some of his beautiful gardening achievements are featured as spectacular images in his FAA galleries. Many artists including myself can attest to Mr. Rosenberger’s kind and detailed comments of support on their artworks, and the fact that he takes great pleasure in displaying the work of other artists in his amazing group on FAA, coming up with innovative ways to spotlight their work. I greatly appreciate that he has invested I’m sure countless hours hosting his group and contests as well as personally encouraging many artists. It is truly a great honor and pleasure to nominate Mr. Randy Rosenberger for the Tony Award ~ a very deserving artist and friend to many.


Mike Savad

Mike Savad besides being a terrific artist, always contributes to members’ questions or requests for help and advice! He gives a great perspective and ALWAYS gives complete examples of why he suggests what he did. He has a STRONG opinion, but his is based on experience and not just an emotional response! “Tells it like it is”, describes Mike! A Valuable contributor to the Forums and adds value to them by his contributions.



Pat Purdy

Pat is committed to the arts as well as the betterment of humans and animals. She is a beautiful person inside and out.
