Nilda Comas - Art News and Classes - posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

  Nilda Comas
Nilda Comas is a world class artist and I am lucky to call her a friend.  We have collaborated on several shows over the years, produced a book of her work and I have visited her at her studio in Italy.  In fact one of my top five all time art experiences was my visit to the bronze foundry and marble studio she works with in Pietrasanta Italy.  I strongly suggest, if you have the chance, to make it over to one of Nilda's workshops, it will change your life!  She hold workshops in Fort Luaderdale, Italy and Puerto Rico.  Oh and she is great with kids and holds fun classes for young artists. 
Nilda sends an "art news update"via email from time to time and will begin posting them on the blog.  I have just cut and pasted the whole email below.  There are lots of links at the bottom if you wish to contact Nilda and find out more about her workshops.  Nilda is working on some big important projects as you will read and I look forward to seeing the new work.  
Nilda will be the next artist I interview for my "Artist Spotlight" so look for that soon!  GL
