Andy Peutherer: I am a Scottish artist and Photographer. My landscape work featured here is based on the spectacular scenery of The Scottish western Isles, Scottish highlands and the Hebriden Islands such as The Isle of Skye, the Uists, Lewis and Harris. I have a great passion for the landscape and natural history of Scotland which has led me to attempt to capture the almost surreal elements of the Scottish landscape, weather and wildlife. My paintings are created with mixed media such as spray paint, acrylic, emulsion and ink which are used together with self taught techniques to illustrate the wild, unpredictable and spectacular nature of the land and sky. I strive to create images which have a more original style than traditional water colours and oils.
ArtShrink: I have been painting for fifteen years and am represented locally by Mo’s Gallery here in Tucson. My work tends to be on the expressionist side of realism. I love the land where I grew up (near Prescott, Arizona) but also the southern part of the state where I live. I teach art to disabled adults. I cook. I drink wine.
These paintings just plain make me happy. That is all. (Can you tell my favorite season is Spring? I got married in March, I’m jealous of my stepmother for having an April birthday… Spring is da bom.)
budanART bio: I am a Canadian artist who works primarily in acrylic. Inspired by nature, I use strong colour, discrete shapes and rhythmic patterns to create paintings which can be enjoyed for both their abstract and realistic qualities.
Amy Bennett: Working with common themes such as transition, aging, isolation, and loss, I am interested in the fragility of relationships and the awkwardness of a group of people trying to coexist and relate to one another. To that end I create miniature 3D models to serve as evolving still lifes from which I paint detailed narrative paintings.
