What I learned so far—everything we do, see, feel and experience in this life can be made into art of any size or function. Even the painful stuff is of use to us all. Our lives are works in progress.

Natural forms are my symbolic language—transposition, transparency and the transformation of one form into another the syntax I use in expressing these ideas. I want to share this mystery with as many people as possible.

I find I that using different mediums together adds exuberance and a freshness to the art as they look, act and feel different from each other. This also adds extra energy to my artwork.

Though I’m still experimenting with new approaches, color techniques, formats and executions, I see myself capturing or recording the history of jazz for a new generation of traditionalists.

My preferred subject matter tends towards something with light, form and color. An apple is called red but if you look at it closely you will see a variety of colors and values.

I combine linear drawing and 3-dimensional objects on, beneath or behind the canvas melding them into the painting, and use texture, paints, strong contours and color to emphasize the painting and transitions into relief and onto objects.

Around this time I also began to incorporate Sumi ink painting in my work, inspired by my maternal grandmother Kimiye who had been born in Japan and was an accomplished calligrapher and teacher.

My art continues to evolve, but one concept remains constant—I am interested in creating powerful objects that live in the real, not the digital, world with weight and age.

Featured Artist Peter Boyadjieff

I seek a visual discourse combining physical realism and figurative imagery in order to critically engage the viewer. Through my work, I attempt to communicate with the audience within a broader multicultural context.

Featured Artist Cecilia Calderon

My latest creations are tapestries made of a combination of fabric, rope, oil paints, copper, gem stones, beads and other natural materials. They have an ancient quality, abstract, but at the same time representing animals which reflects my concern and love of nature and our deepest roots.

Artist Ann-Marie Brown’s lush oil and encaustic paintings are an invitation to linger.

My process combines meticulous piecing of materials with gestural, intuitive mark making—just as our lives contain moments of structure and periods of chaos. Ultimately, I aim for a balance between these two factors, creating a celebration of the complexity of our experiences.
