In celebration of our 30th Anniversary, ninety five artists - past and present - will be represented in this exhibit, showing artwork in varied mediums.
Every morning I get up and am excited to head up to my studio to paint. I love telling stories with my paintings. What meaning is there to an old chair or bicycle? What is the history behind it? How many people have walked these streets? I'm inspired by my surroundings and the story they tell.
I believe creating an artistic piece of sculpture is about the power of visualization and imagination and the ability and technique the artist employs to define his or her work and present the ordinary in an extraordinary way.
I have had a fascination with Aboriginal Dot Art for the last couple years. In my show, 'A Twist on Dot Art', I have begun transitioning Dot art to include subjects nearer to home and layering the dots to develop depth and subtle transitions in color.
I am fascinated with macro nature photography, especially flora. I currently reside in Denver, CO, and enjoy capturing the intricate beauty that surrounds us each and every day. My photographs are flush mounted on acrylic for a contemporary treatment.
