Denice Marie Eyre is a St Petersburg based artist who exudes powerful and energetic creativity. Creative
Grape is happy to announce Motion Detected, a solo show of Denice’s sometimes whimsical, always
thoughƞul and thoroughly entertaining visual artwork.
Denice is a modern-day polymath: a floral designer, painter, dancer and author. Her visual artwork is
strongly rooted in dance movement as well as the principles of design gleaned from her floral design
education and 25-year career. Her paintings convey movement, vibrance and emotions revolving around
the malleable nature of reality, consciousness and connectivity.
Denice is the author and illustrator of Rabbit in the Water, a story of a precocious and intelligent, yet
bullied girl named Harriet. With the help of her mother’s empowering presence Harriet rises above the
negativity with the strength of forgiveness in this heart-warming tale. This is a timely and mature
message that is fiƫng given the sometimes divisive moments we are faced with today.
Denice has also published Color and Motion, a coloring book that is wildly creative and appropriate for
all ages. Signed copies, complete with the artist’s embellishment, will be available while the show runs.
An opening reception will be held March 16th from 6:30 to 9:30 at Creative Grape.
David Munoz, a Sarasota based composer, artist and guitarist specializing in Latin/Brazilian/World music
rhythms, will be providing music for the opening. There may be other surprises that reflect the
multitude of talent on display. Complementary sparkling wine will be provided to toast and celebrate
Running March 14th through May 20th, 2023.
