Finding fulfillment in life: A South Florida artist’s definition of success (includes audio slideshow)

Visual artist Angelica Clyman believes that you can find purpose in an unconventional career.

“I’m really proud, more than anything, of how much my art has evolved since I’ve been doing art for about 25 years,” said Clyman. “To see how much my work has evolved, how much I’ve grown, that’s what I’m most proud of.”

Clyman’s recent mixed media sculptures evoke South Florida’s ever changing landscapes, and her work has been shown in exhibitions conducted at The Rosemary Duffy Larson Gallery in Davie.

As an artist, a gallery director and an art professor, Clyman found her niche in Broward College.

“I’m also proud of how I’ve impacted my students. A lot of them are now college professors, exhibiting artists or professional artists,” Clyman said.

Whether it’s creating her own pieces, or teaching others, Clyman is clear about what success means to her.
