Enid Blechman was born in New York City and currently resides on the Florida coast with her rescue dog Uncle Oscar. She had two lifelong dreams. One of them, to live by the ocean, is a reality at last. The other, to travel into space may only be fulfilled in her mind.

 

She was an honors scholarship recipient at Savannah College of Art and Design, where she received a second Masters Degree of Fine Arts in painting. One year after receiving her degree she had a solo show at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

 

She has received the New York Foundation for the Arts Award and has been featured in New American Painting. Most recently, the Broward New Times named her one of the top ten visual artists in Palm Beach County.

 

Her move to Florida raised environmental concerns and was the impetus for a new body of work. As founder and C.E.O. of the fictional corporation Adipose Industries, she explores the repurposing of human fat and solutions to ecological catastrophes.

She has recently turned the ocean upside down to become the first astronaut of the sea. Dreams do come true.
