Discover Local Artists: Talleyrand and Bernay-Roman

Local Arts Group Helps Haitian Organization for Health Services with Art Exhibit and Sale “A Blast of Color”

The Artists Association of Jupiter and Unique Glass Art hosts a monthly open house, “A Blast of Color,”  to raise awareness and funds for not-for-profit organizations. The May event, featuring artists Raymonde Talleyrand, who paints in acrylics on canvas, and digital photographer Lynne Bernay-Roman, will be on Wednesday, May 8, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m,  at A Unique Art Gallery. Proceeds from the sale of art work created by the artists of the AAOJ, will benefit the Haitian Organization for Health Services, a not for profit organization. The exhibit will be on display during May.


Talleyrand said she believed that she was born an artist because of her interest in designs and color from an early age. “My hope is to be a messenger of beauty to the viewer. This is my motivation. I value beauty in nature, photographs and people. I like interesting shades of light and shadows, expressing them on canvas gives me joy.”

The work featured here  is mixed media with acrylic paint, collage and markers. “I wanted to represent the beautiful colors of the marine flora,” she said. The tissue paper  that she used made her expression of colors almost two dimensional, while the markers worked well to define the treasures. “It was a lot of fun expressing my idea,” she said.

Talleyrand was born in Haiti and now lives in West Palm Beach.

“While my roots are in oil painting, I am a contemporary artist,” West Palm Beach resident Bernay-Roman said.

“Along the way, I added photography, became a psychotherapist, evolved into a photo-therapist. “Now, I am deep into my recent discovery, digital painting; a discovery that has allowed me to combine many of the different mediums that I love.

“The present plight of the bee saddens my heart,” she said, about the piece shown here. “I wanted to express the richness and importance of their presence on earth and their very important purpose, so that it may evoke awareness and action on our parts to make sure they thrive.”
