My goal is to transfer the happiness I find in these places into my work. That is why so many of my paintings focus on individual subjects or landscapes—animal portraits, solitary figures and quiet spaces.

My cow series represents sixteen years of exploration of bovines—studying their personalities, interactions, general nature and anatomy. I complement my decades-long classical training in the style of the Great Masters with more abstract colors to drive an emotional response from the viewer.

Featured Artist Haylee McFarland

Everything I do is freehand. I never use rulers, compasses, magnifying glasses or computers. I primarily work in watercolor and pen and ink. My goal is to make the two mediums complement each other. I love the loose, almost messy watercolor, mixed with the intricate details that I hand draw on top.

I’ve long been captivated by pastels and am enthralled by the immediacy and intensity of their colours and their incredible versatility.

Featured Artist Valerie Warner

This combination hits all of my needs with radiance, depth and hopefully glow. People have told me that I truly show the spirit of my subjects. I hope so. Mother Spirit would be pleased.

I love the technique of free motion threading, it is like using thread as a paintbrush—combining my love of both painting and quilting.

Featured Artist Sherif Hakeem

My inspiration for my art comes from subjects who have or had a difficult way of life. People who have the misfortune of being homeless and animals that are abused.

I’ve been deeply involved in organizations such as Artists for Conservation and Artists Against Extinction. The animals I’ve painted may be endangered, marginalized, or used by humans for food, entertainment, clothing, etc.

Featured Artist Kathy Moore Wilson

My current focus is in painting animals, both pets and wildlife. Whether I paint animals or children, I always imagine a story. I sometimes like to imagine what they are thinking, or what they are about to do, or what they just did.

Featured Artist Anup Shah

I realized that how I saw the natural world and my interpretation of it was not being reflected in my photography. Then I discovered fine art photography and, re-energized, I searched for my taste within it.

Featured Artist Astrid Harrisson

My overall commitment is to producing engaging photography of the animal world in a fresh and creative way–distinctive imagery that is refined, artistic and representative.

Sharing studio space may not always be easy, but these artists were happy to share pictures and a few words about their furry best friends who keep them company (and often inspire them while they work!)     Christine Wagner This is my best friend and studio mascot, Roscoe. He’s always patient when I’m focused […]

Featured Artist Kelly Moran

I have a deep connection with color. I love it. Plain and simple. I will always find a way to introduce this tasty ingredient to my work because I don’t know what my creative world would be without it!
