AMEL.jpg

AMEL SAMUELS
founder of EARTH & BONE STUDIOS

Originally from a small common wealth community in New England Amel was surrounded by a defined line of ignorance and poverty. He found solitude and peace in art. Art was not only an escape but also a way to express his individuality in a overly conservative environment. In his early teens he would take the train out of the country into the closest city's where his creativity was greatly inspired by urban culture, music, and among all diversity. Influenced by graffiti, music, and architecture he adapted his own style. Over the years his studies introduced Amel to geometry, spatial arts and his own personal interest in advertising. His education and experiences only defined his interests in art, but also refined it.

JUNIOR POLO
children's class art instructor

Junior Polo was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Since the age 5, Polo has been following the best Haitian painters in their respective disciplines. He has since developed his love and passion for art through painting, pottery and stage design. Polo later found his inspiration for helping youth by working with disabled children at Saint Vincent Center in Haiti. This experience changed his life and he began to develop a plan to start a youth empowerment non-profit organization called GREDEVE (Network Empowerment for Child Development). In its 20th year, the organization teaches at-risk and underserved youth in the areas of leadership, art, literacy and personal development. GREDEVE now serves over 300 youth and hosts many community building activities and performances each year. Now residing in Tampa Bay, Polo has pursued his passion for serving his community by creating a local youth arts initiative, VeroPolo Kids Space. He also teaches art classes for the Prodigy Cultural Arts Program. Through both programs, Polo shares valuable art techniques and life skills with young people through out the Bay Area. Polo’s inspiration draws upon his life experiences and the recent earthquake disaster in Haiti. He believes art can be used as therapy for anyone searching for healing. Junior Polo’s art is featured in several art galleries and installations in the Tampa Bay area and a portion of his commissions are sent back to help fund and support GREDEVE.

WAI CHING Schroeder
FEATURED ARTIST

My name is Wai Ching Schroeder, an artist and dreamer. I believe artists are the creative minds and future leaders. Growing up in a big family from Hong Kong, I became financially independent at a young age. In 2000, I took my first step towards pursuing my dreams by participating in the Walt Disney World Millennium Celebration. At 17, I left home with empty suitcases and arrived in America miraculously, thanks to a supportive religious teacher. Working two jobs while attending college, I obtained a nursing degree with high honors. As a registered nurse with a passion for travel, I’ve worked as a medical officer on cruises and gained a unique perspective on the world. Since 2016, I’ve delved into screenwriting and painting, driven by my longing for purpose and a desire to create. Being a dreamer and embracing the freedom to create is my ultimate pursuit.
