April Dubois is a Florida based artist, born and raised on the waters of Deerfield Beach. Growing up in an art studio, she was creating at a very young age. A 2008 graduate of The University of South Florida, April learned to channel her creativity to develop and elevate visual and conceptual content. Formally trained as a painter in the Academia setting, she uses this skill as a resource towards invoking emotion and imagery out of material.
In addition to being an instructor at CVE, she is also the artist who designed and painted the seascape mural in our indoor pool!
