Sarah McBride – My painting empowers me. I strive to reproduce life as accurately as possible. I am an avowed realist. The pleasure in my art comes from the challenges of perfection.
Barbara Dow – My painting of Aspen trees was inspired upon a visit to Colorado one Autumn day. The piece was done in oils. My style leans toward impressionism, and my colors convey a feeling of happiness to be amongst these shimmering beauties.
Karin Cohen – I seek to enhance a subject’s natural beauty, using color and texture… to express my artistic vision, I believe I need to put my own version down on canvas.
Alissa Siegal – I am by nature both chaotic and exacting. I have found a way to bring these opposing traits together by combining carefully observed drawing with freedom of paint. I want my work to reflect the spontaneous, accidental and beautiful nature of life itself.
Katherine McConnell – I strive to capture light and movement in my paintings, so that viewer can truly connect with the pieces. I enjoy evoking real emotions with my imagery.
Diane Sinclair – I painted this portrait to raise funds for the Wildcat Haven, a project aimed at protecting and conserving genetically pure Scottish Wildcats in the West Highlands of Scotland. The original painting is sold and 30% of the proceeds were donated to Wildcat Haven.
