Bealls' president, Lorna Nagler, opened the event and spoke to the audience about "all things" Leoma Lovegrove!

Nagler shared how that day's guest of honor, herself and Bealls came to know each other. She also shared about how the merging of both the artist and Bealls came to be with obviously wonderful artistic results!

Lovegrove, who resides in Matlacha, was introduced by Nagler, joined her on stage, and began throwing out hand painted "frisbies" into the audience.

Soon to follow, Lovegrove painted to music that was engineered cleverly by Bealls' staff. The artist painted on a huge canvas on stage, which she produced in a matter of minutes, an amazing ten foot seahorse!

"This Florida artist is an impressionist painter, wife, celebrity, local historian, patriotic, colorful, energetic, business savvy, kooky, vibrant and a marketing genius." -

After the painting demonstration, Lovegrove mingled among fans and posed for photos.

"Midwest transplant, animal lover, fisherwoman, devoted friend and colorful are just a few more words one might use to describe this fun-filled gal.

She is artist extraordinaire, Leoma Lovegrove." -

Leoma Lovegrove's touch of art on products available at event were:

  • Baby clothes
  • Women's clothes
  • Tote bags
  • Tervis Tumblers
  • Pillows
  • Notecards
  • Dinnerware
  • and more unique items

Fans had much to say about Leoma Lovegrove.

"I love her work. I have many pieces, and today I'm getting t-shirts with birds and a bike."

"Our home is full of her art. We can't get enough of it, really!"

"I love the bright colors she uses. Do you think they're acrylic? Whatever they are I love them!"
