Ugly Duckling No More

We are a family of artists, spanning four generations...

abet each with a different style and preferred medium.

"Multi-talented Daughter, Michele Ann Lacy, is an accomplished mural and body-art painter. Her stunningly beautiful, custom designed backdrops serve as focal-points for a variety of themed events and festivals. She also creates murals to accompany her body-painting, often accenting the finished art with stunningly dramatic headdresses for her models."

"Granddaughter, Dr. Lacy Elizabeth Mason, began her artistic journey as a face-painter working in her Mother's business. Become accomplished at her craft, Lacy added balloon twisting and character /  princess impersonations  to her growing skills, branched out, and began her own successful party business while in college. Like her Mother, she also applies her skills to canvas, creating unique, whimsical paintings that are highly sought after."

"Our family's newest artist is Grandson, Jeffrey Peterson. Jeffrey surprised us several years ago when he revealed his incredibly detailed pencil renderings of various movie characters. To say our jaws dropped to the floor is an understatement. This young man is talented! Upon receiving a Holiday gift of pen and inks, he immediately applied that medium to his work with astonishing results. Two of his drawings were featured in a show at the University of Central Florida this past fall. Recently, Jeffrey indicated he would like to branch into oil painting. I can only imagine what great things lie ahead for this very promising artist."

"Great Grandma, an artist herself, would be so proud."
