(1) Ind, Jon Sligar has been a Carmel-by-the-Sea "Artist in Residence" since 
1973. Before that, he taught fine art at his own art school in the San Francisco 
Bay Area. He attained a fine arts degree from a California State University, 
along with a Certificate from Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, in Oxford, 
He has exhibited in many fine art galleries including Gallerie Amsterdam, 
Classic Art Gallery, Simic Art Galleries, and Lisette's Gallery, all located in 
Carmel CA.  In 1993, Jon was awarded the "Mayor's Choice" award for his acrylic 
painting rendition of Carmel Beach in the Carmel Art Festival. 
Jon comes from a family of artists. His mother is a watercolorist. His 
grandfather, was a freelance commercial artist. In 1958, Jon married a Belgian 
artist, named Lisette. Lisette's father, Lucien Richardeau, was well known for 
his European and American landscapes. 
Jon is a "Contemporary California Impressionist."  He works from studies done on 
location, and then completes them at his Carmel studio. His medium is acrylic on 
canvas. His works range in size from 8" x 10"  to mural size. Jon's passion is 
to capture the beauty of Carmel, Big Sur, Carmel Valley, and the Monterey 
Peninsula on canvas. 
Jon believes that when he starts a painting, the vibrations of the work are 
already beginning to search out and connect with the person who will own it. He 
also believes that beautiful paintings bring light into the world of the 
Jon Sligar is now represented exclusively through the Carmel-by-the-Sea Gallery. 
(2) Ind, Lisette was born and raised in a little village in Belgium, on the Meuse 
river, next to the beautiful Chateau d'Ahin; where as a child she often played 
with the young Baron and Count. As a young girl, she romanticized about living 
in the castle. Her Father, Lucien Richardeau, was an artist, so she grew up 
surrounded by his paints, brushes, and canvas. Sometimes she sketched and 
painted with him. 
World-War-Two started and her family was invited to stay at the castle when her 
was destroyed by the bombing. The chateau became her sanctuary apart from the 
turmoil of war.
At the end of the war, Lisette and her family moved to 
California where she met and married a talented young artist. She then painted 
intensely and studied with her husband, her father, and other California 
impressionist painters. Later, Lisette and her husband opened their own gallery 
and art school in the San Francisco bay area. After much success, they relocated 
the business to Carmel where it became "Lisette's Gallery". There her paintings 
sold to collectors from all over the world.  
Now Lisette paints at her home studio exclusively for  Carmel-by-the-Sea Gallery.
