As a child, pouring my thoughts and emotions into my art acted as a means for survival. It was a way to express myself when I could not speak about the things that were going on around me.

Featured Artist Susan Melrath

When I paint, I am exploring color, texture, and patterns, and how they relate. Each painting begins with layers of pure color and grows through a process of glazing, sanding, adding, and subtracting.

Featured Artist Dorothy Fagan

Taking dictation from the Creator, I learned to accept each brush stroke as a gift. Not to mess with it but to accept it as gift given, however imperfect it may appear.

Featured Artist Aleta Gudelski

I try to infuse my paintings with the passion and love I feel towards nature and creation. I do this through dynamic composition, juxtaposition of bold brush and palette knife work, textural passages and notes of unexpected color.

Featured Artist Martein Peeters

For many painters the naked body was and still is the ultimate object of study. Nothing is as complex as the organic shapes and colour nuances of the human skin of a posing body.

Featured Artist Diane Weiner

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 Don Rankin

I think this is a great time to be a watercolor painter for we have so many wonderful toys from which to choose—new paints, new paper and the like.

Featured Artist Lyndall Bass

Still life for me is pure poetry. Which objects I choose to paint and how they are arranged is an enriched process. I imagine a setting with a person doing something or a narrative series of events. With flowers as the subject, I can paint them like portraits or as an abstract arrangement of color ideas.

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.

Featured Artist Ira Kennedy

I am fascinated by the alchemy of colors—in particular, the gradations of color achieved through the optical blending of dots.

Featured Artist Deborah Tilby

I have been told that the term that best fits my work is Contemporary Impressionism and I quite like it. It is representational but not realism.

Featured Artist J.W. Hyatt

In my still life collection, I like to compose and portray the objects I paint as subjects sitting for a portrait. Just as a portrait artist would attempt to show the character and personality of each subject, I approach each still life with the same challenge of capturing its unique gestalt.

Featured Artist Tanya Marie Reeves

I hope my artwork inspires and empowers women of all ages, helping them to embrace and revel in similar attributes within themselves while also reminding every man of the strong, beautiful women in their everyday lives.

Featured Artist Kurt Wedgley

Now, I not only shape canvases anyway I desire, but I add other media to them. I have so many ideas! I really like the idea of adding metal to them. I love the contrast between the delicate canvas and the solid steel and how they seem to work together harmoniously.
