My refusal to follow the path of perfection leaves me room to develop my painting.

Intrigued, I bought my first kiln and began my relationship with glass—this unique material that is neither solid nor liquid, whose molecular structure changes with every firing yet retains the details of each, that can be smooth or textured, flat or wavy, woven, draped, that can record images—had captured my fascination!

Most of my forensic art is facial reconstruction from skeletal remains. This makes me see more clearly the transitory nature of our bodies and lives and makes it all the more important to tell the stories of people in portraits and assemblage.

My art work explores aspects of our natural world and human experience. I intend to discover the inner beauty of things and the complexities of life, the natural environment that represents life, the water that nourishes the earth with fertility, knowledge and the evolution of life.

My circadian rhythms were off and I was nocturnal so I started working through the night, invoking nighttime’s mystical energy while simultaneously honoring my own cycles. My excessive REM cycles gave me intense and vivid dreams so I started drawing them.

Painting abstractly exposes the artist and embracing this vulnerability requires a leap of faith in self. I think my art journey has made me a stronger human being. One of my personal mottoes has become “strength in humility.”

Featured Artist Joseph Boddy

I feel strongly about honoring the past by reintroducing reclaimed wood from old buildings, rusty farm equipment and other natural materials in a way that hopefully helps redefine what beauty has always been.

To add an even more random step to the process, I stand the canvas or paper up vertically and let it drip. The contrast between random accidents and more decisive mark making thrills me.

A dear friend and author has referred to my style as “Maximalist,” a term that aptly describes both my multilayered images and themes that aspire to capture more than one meaning at once.

Featured Artist Jonna Gill

Two disciplines, photography and painting, come together and remain separate in my most current and continuous projects—La Belle Fleur (one woman’s obsession with flowers) and PROJECT MAX.

Beginning with thin layers of oily warm transparent hues then mutating into thick painterly brush marks. The paintings take weeks to finish with each layer stamping the recollection of that day’s walk. I work on five to ten paintings on any given day and allow the pieces to unfold in a contemplate manner.

The rainbow colors I use symbolize both diversity and inclusion. The positions show the figures supporting each other. The circle, totem, and structure are formal devices that facilitate a unified composition of many elements and symbolize the unity of purpose that characterizes this community.

Featured Artist Shane Conroy

At this exciting stage of my career, I’m extremely energetic, confident and inspired by a wellspring of ideas and have the ability to materialize and communicate them.

Featured Artist Elizabeth Fontaine-Barr

My muses are the Fauvists so my color palette is bold. It always has been. When I begin a new canvas, I’m not always sure what I’m going to paint.
