Rebecca Armbrister Christen spent her earliest years between Washington DC, USA and Nassau, Bahamas. In 1986 she relocated to Nassau permanently where she attended St Andrews until graduating in 1999. Rebecca went on to graduate from Florida State University in 2005 after attending both their campuses in Tallahassee, Florida and Valencia, Spain. Her next 3 years were spent living in Miami, Florida before returning home to The Bahamas. Rebecca’s first children’s painting was created at the request of a friend. To her surprise more requests quickly followed giving birth to the idea for a series of island inspired paintings for children. As word spread of her children's paintings Rebecca was contacted by Bahamian author Jennifer Stack to illustrate her children's book 'The Adventures of Flip & Flop: Sole Survivors'. Since then Rebecca has illustrated several Bahamian children's books, now proudly included among them is 'Porkchop Learns To Sign.
Internationally known artist Judith Papillon’s works illustrate the beauty of The Bahamas where she pools her inspiration.
Born in Quebec City, Judith Papillon is an autodidact artist who portrays images of her adopted island of Andros in watercolour and acrylic. She graduated from Ottawa University with a B.A. in Translation and also received a Teaching Certificate from Concordia University in Montreal.
Having a craving to experience new cultures, she has traveled extensively around the world, spending much time in Europe and touring fine art museums such as The Louvre, The Prado, and The Uffizi. Her world travels brought her throughout the Pacific, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Greece and the Mediterranean.
In 1998, Papillon visited the island of Andros and fell in love with the beauty and the special light that exists. She decided to establish roots. She built a home and became a teacher at North Andros High School where she taught Spanish for 10 years. She spends her days now creating. Recently she has illustrated a children’s book on the Swimming Pigs of The Bahamas. Ms. Papillon’s works are exposed in Canada, Australia, England, France, Holland, the United States, The Bahamas and in private collections around the world.
