About the Artist

Adria Bernstein is the creator and owner of WITTY WOCKS!  She enjoys the natural beauty rocks and then brought to life and appreciated rocks in an artistic way.  So what the heck is a Witty Wock?  In a nutshell Witty Wocks are likenesses of pets, persons and other objects created with the stroke of a paint brush over the natural shape and texture of rocks.

Artist's Statement

I discovered this opportunity on Facebook through an Artist Group.  Having worked and met Mr. Xavier Cortada last year, his name caught my attention.   Of course having an a passion for art, I decided to give this a whirl!  Thank you for this opportunity to show what the State of Florida has to offer in the world of Artist’s in our beautiful Sunshine State!
