About Marie: Marie E. Altenburg, also known by her initials MEA, is a digital artist who has never stopped refining her craft. Despite a busy life raising five children and working full time, she managed to carve out time to pursue her artistic endeavors as she created art for her own personal enjoyment. Her artistic growth never stops. Over time, MEA has developed unique ways of utilizing light and color to produce unique art. She has received numerous awards from galleries and salons throughout the country and was listed in the Who’s Who of Photographers by the Photographic Society of America. She has had her work published in national magazines and has been asked to demonstrate her work at conferences throughout the country. MEA is often asked to critique the work of others to offer guidance and suggestions for improving their art. She often volunteers her time to arts organizations.


About Susan: Susan Nanna Casbarro is an award-winning mixed-media mosaicist. She was raised in a setting where everyone valued and participated in the visual and performing arts, including sculpture, painting, music, dance, jewelry making, script and songwriting, Japanese brushwork and puppetry, among other areas. From the age of 5 she was performing in marionette shows with her family in malls and at charity events.

Susan was born and raised in New York and currently resides in Florida. She is a teacher by heart and occupation (middle school Math). Upon retirement, she poured all of her passion into her artwork and set up the Glistening Glass Studio, where she creates her own pieces and shares the art of mosaics with her students. She began exhibiting in 2018 in local and national galleries. Susan is a member of the Broward Art Guild, National League of American PEN women, SAMA-Society of American Mosaic Artists, and is the Treasurer of the Weston Art Guild.
