Artist Showcase Spring, 2018

From oils and encaustic was paintings to photography and digital artwork, these images have been inspired by the artists’ passion, curiosity and imagination.

Featured Artist Ken Roberts

I am privileged and passionate about landscape painting, endeavouring to transform the two-dimensional canvas into a portal, drawing the observer into an ethereal world of emotional connections.

Featured Artist Steph Mader

I hope the glass landscapes evoke those quiet places where there are only natural sounds–the wind, bird song, little rustlings in the underbrush. I think it helps us remember that we are part of the larger world, just as perfect and natural as any other creature.

Featured Artist Samantha Kaplan

I hope that my work shows that we live in such a magnificent, fragile world that is worth treasuring and protecting.

Featured Artist Lynn Goldstein

I am never interested in replicating exactly what I see in front of me. Rather, I want to express the way that being in nature makes me feel.

Featured Artist Jayne Rolinson

I love to layer my paintings, activating the canvas with bold and intricate brush strokes and weaving poetic words, hopes and dreams into the painting. It’s like a rhythmic dance of the creative mind at play.

Featured Artist Ober-Rae Starr Livingstone

The play of light on water or the sweep of the sun across a meadow stirs me to depths that I find difficult to express in words. I strive to put these feelings onto canvas.

Featured Artist Carl Gethmann

My main objective as a painter is to create a beautiful piece of art and invoke a mood or sense of place.
I am most happy when I hear a person say, upon first seeing one of my pieces, “That’s beautiful!”

Celebration of the Landscape

Artsy Shark invited some artist friends to share landscapes in their own signature styles.
