VersAnnette Blackman-Bosia

My work is bold, vibrant, energetic, and healing. It starts with color and mark-making, and by the end there are layers and layers of texture and marks. My art comes from a place in my soul that has stories to share. Stories of healing, transformation, celebrating wonder and curiosity. It also really accesses and honors the divine feminine.

My work right now is focused on watercolor on paper. I am fascinated by geometric patterns and impressionistic florals and landscapes. I like taking a traditional medium (like watercolor) and using it in more modern applications.

Justine Hanin

I’m one of those multi-passionate creators who doodle, paint or design just whatever is on their heart and mind at the moment. I am a seasoned portrait artist, but have in the last few years began to develop a more illustrative style.

Stephanie Huellmann

I mostly produce mixed media art. The material I work with are usually things I find during walks in nature or in the city. Sometimes it rather feels as it these things find me… That is, for example nature materials and recycled materials. For quite a while now I have been working with used teabags, which I combine with the other materials mentioned, I draw and glue and stitch onto teabags.

Heather Kirtland

The majority of my work explores basic emotional states.  We’ve all found ourselves in varying situations of confinement, camaraderie, reverie and desolation.  There are moments when we are part of a community, and moments where we are isolated.  These scenarios might evoke a different emotional reaction for each individual depending on time and place.  I intend to bring attention to this universal human condition.

Within each of my paintings I also find a joy in the tactile.  I create abstracted moments that reference a particular composition usually found in nature.  I am drawn to beautiful moments within a painting.  There are the small nuances that a color, line or texture can create.    Sometimes that beauty is enough.

S-Lund-Headshot.jpg

Sarah Lund

Sarah Lund is an abstract artist who creates paintings saturated with texture. Her work focuses on creating sculptural paintings which traverse the juxtaposition between the beauty of painting and the texture of sculpture. A fascination with the natural world and our interactions with it guide her practice. These paintings are a moment of fluidity manifested.

Christina MacKinnon

I have always stated that when I paint, I am the truest version of myself.  Painting leads me to connection and as I paint, a dialogue develops. My abstract paintings are my way of deepening connection with myself and with others purely by means of expression.  I rely on the unexpected emergence of form, shape and the emotive nature of color to dictate the story to me--the story that I’m here to tell.  When there isn’t any representation in a painting, it propels us to look further for understanding, meaning and connection. We’re wired to seek out something we can identify, so I want my work to push those boundaries and move the human soul to look beyond the recognizable for truth.

Thad Morgan

My style is called Modern Fauvism and is based on the initial power of energy that colors exude...The original function of art is to energize spaces by first ingesting that energy to the human visual system. The discipline of my style incorporates principles of balance, movement, proportions, rhythms and the unity and energy that bold vibrant colors exude. In stylistic form they are brought to life with the pointed stick ends of old brushes, guiding the colors into a rhythmic performance on the canvas, creating harmony when those colors’ individual frequencies are connected within the composition. I believe the energy of colors collectively combined within their powerful diversities, come alive in a look of action that, along with the human visual systems perceptions of colors, create a physiological association which turns into an intrusive emotional experience for the viewer. The sweetness or bitterness of that experience is not in the event itself… but how the viewer will perceive it and respond to it.

Elizabeth Patterson

I focus on bold, sometimes abstract, emotion-driven oil and mixed media paintings and stylized drawings that memorialize significant moments in a person’s life, whether it be my life or the life of whomever I’m creating a piece for. Whenever I create a piece, I want to tell a story because I found that to be the best way to connect authentically with other people.

S-Uram-Profile.jpg

Sarah Uram

I create abstract art using hand-drawn patterns that are either free-flowing, measured geometrically, or a combination of both. Ink is my main media, but watercolor is more and more often used, and sometimes colored pencils.

Whitney Wirtz

Abstracted and ocean inspired abstract art through the use of mixed media, watercolor, fluid acrylics, pastel and graphite. I try to capture the small details and the wonder and joy of the ocean, water and its energy and the natural environments found on the coast where I live.
