If I could offer any advice to new painters it would be to study under someone who inspires you. And don’t be afraid to use a lot of paint.

Vivid colors and a unique compilation of styles and visual elements—for example, pictures, cartoons, symbols, signs and words—are often the basis for my authentic collage-pop-art-kind-of-style.

Featured Artist Ande Hall

With each new painting I try to explore some new variation in my “dance” with the patterned fabric. I have so many ideas (and fabrics) awaiting their turn in the realization queue.

Art and Healing

My purpose is to share my abstract nature photography with the hope that it can inspire, heal and awaken the imagination.

Featured Artist Jennifer Fleming

Botanicals tend to hold a dominant place in each piece, and they often weave in and out of my imagery.

Featured Artist Fiona Groom

Painting gives me a feeling of happiness—a place to relax, reflect and get lost in the process.
