ENRIQUE (KICO) GOVANTES was born in 1957 in Havana, Cuba. His family moved to Miami in 1960. His grandfather was Chief Architect and Ministro de Trabajos Públicos of Havana for over forty years. Kico attended Beloit College, graduating in 1980. He also studied architecture and sculpture at Rhode Island School of Design. having painted since the age of 10, Kico has exhibited regularly both in San Francisco and on the East Coast. Among the public awards won was the prestigious 1996 Kiosk Project-Market Street in San Francisco. He is represented in several public collections, among them the Stanford University Art Museum. In his work he often combines meditation and storytelling as well as using words with images, in part to connect to his Spanish roots, and in part to combine emotional/psychological concepts with visual characterizations.

JOY WOLF is an anthropologist. She wanted adventure, so never thought of being an artist. She spent two years conducting her doctoral research in Nepal, taught at a number of universities in Boston and Virginia, and spent fifteen years doing research and analysis in a dozen African countries for the State Department. Then she did the same thing that her father had done when he retired: she started painting. First, she painted her horses and the cows along the roads in rural Virginia. Now she and her husband live in Catskill, NY and she tries to paint light.
