Nina

Adkins

I love to paint. I love the color and response of the paint on the surface of whatever paper, canvas, or board that I am painting on. I think watercolor sings on paper and you can't beat the colors in acrylics. In this painting, "Tango", my love for dance comes through.

Lynda

Burch

I am a mixed media collage artist and acrylic painter, having been in SLMM for a long time. My focus is on experimental and bringing old treasures to a new life in art, such as U.S cancelled postage stamps, old maps, music scores, wine labels and much more. These add an extra dimension to my art and bring an added interest from the viewer.

I see in the Universe a mystical world of flowing energies. It is the essence of this spiritual energy and its beautiful vibrant colors that inspire my paintings.

I am a local artist born and raised in Great Bend KS. I joined SLMM recently and have thoroughly enjoyed the network of artists and the encouragement from this amazing group of creative individuals.

Beth Ann

DeMont

As a long time art educator I have traveled through many mediums. I fall in love with each one. These art forms are my expression of experiences. I have a burning desire to learn new techniques, use new materials. I can easily fall into the comfort of the familiar and favorite colors and creations. I love realism as well as abstract.

I love combining images from quantum physics to tribal art, from natural forms to crop circles.

I think art making is a dialogue between me and the work. I put something down, it tells me where to go next. I try to listen.

Foster

In my paintings, I project the spirit and energy of the American Southwest. I also allow my under painting to dictate the final result. Veils of color and texture, both transparent and opaque create a mood — a feeling of place and space. By expressing my mind, I hope to connect my feelings with those of the viewer in an emotional manner.

Constance

Gehring

As a fine artist, I have always been fascinated by color. As a young child when my mother put me down for a nap I would stare at the quilt squares of pink, turquoise, and lemon yellow. In being a young artist, I experimented with embroidery and weaving. Since 2010 I have been a painter. First, with pastel and then added oils - what a challenge! and also paint with other mediums. Color is my thing. I strive to paint with harmonious and striking tantalizing color. My work has more than one style. Although I started in pastels, I am now working with acrylics, oils, alcohol inks. It is a journey.

Have been expanding my horizons to include cast glass pieces. Both bronze and glass go to outside foundries, but the cast stone and "found" work I do in-house.

Vicky

Lennon

www.vickylennon.com    boatingartist@bellsouth.net

Vibrant Colors and rich textures explode on the surface of my non-objective work. My paintings are always a process. I work intuitively as the image evolves. Varied layers of glazing give lushness and depth, while the addition of mediums helps to create the textures that emerge in the final image. I work pushing and pulling shapes, surfaces, and colors, until I am excited with the uniqueness of each piece.

Georgia

Mason

I am an abstract/impressionist painter in water media. I love playing with color, shapes, layers and introducing textures

Shirley

Nachtrieb

www.nachtrieb.com    shirley@nachtrieb.com

My artwork is earthy, organic and multimedia. I enjoy painting from nature then interpreting my images into collages using textures. I work experimentally, painting positive and negative shapes, and adding embellishments. I am always looking for a way to interpret what I see in a more creative way.

I see the world as a web of interconnected facets, finding commonalities among seemingly disparate elements, in literature, in music, & in my art.

Laura

Pope

facebook.com/lpopeart    lpopeart@gmail.com

My work is a culmination of the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects I experience at a particular time. Starting with random marks and strokes, I add many layers of colour to allow unexpected images to appear. As I tap into my intuition, the paint ‘speaks to me’ and tells me what it wants to become.

Jenny Badger

Sultan

www.jennybadgersultan.com     jbadger@ccsf.edu

"Art has always been a process of self discovery, healing and integration for me. Focused image–making and random experimentation with materials are partners in the work. Most of my paintings express different aspects of my experience of the inner spiritual world, drawing upon my dreams, personal symbols and world religions. They begin with a seed idea and then expand to include the thoughts, feelings and images that emerge during the painting process."

Joanne

VanGenderen

My art is a reflection of how I internalize the awe and wonder of the world around me. The process of art-making is guided by my love for exploration and learning.

Braukman

A PAINTER’S WORK IS HIS DIARY…JOURNEY. As a water media artist, my life experiences become filtered in my eye, mind, and heart. They are then transformed into my paintings… of joy and passion and adventure and reflection… I want the viewer to crawl into my work and walk through each step of motion or intensity or serenity.

Sue

Burke Harrington

I work with oils, acrylics, photographs, and related media to create abstract works that typically reflect complex, multi-themed visualizations. My goal is to draw the viewer into the piece, creating a conversation between the artist and the viewer.

D'Alessio

I have been working with mixed media—collage and have been a SLMM member since the early 1980s.

Pam

Demo

I live in the desert. I steal its topographic and geologic colors and shapes. It is Earth thinly-clothed in sparse vegetation with her landforms exposed under vast expanses of sky. Colors and shapes are sensual and subtle, shifting with the changing light. On large and small scales, her topography is dramatic and artful.

 

My work is construction: I build art. Anything goes that contributes to composition, texture and tonality that make the final form. Whether they be paint, ink, paper, concrete, sand, rock, earth or fabric then whatever works, Works!

Linda C.

Dumas

www.dumasarts.com    lcdumas@aol.com

I begin with the germ of an idea — a color, pattern, background — and wait for the art to tell me how to finish. I sometimes fail myself, but the art never fails me if I listen to it.

Carla

Duncan

Creating drives my life. Whether it was within my long teaching career with 4th graders at a progressive school, or during the past 20 years of my business, Duncan Designs, I've enjoyed inventing new art forms in different mediums. Nature provides infinite inspiration for me, and it pushes me with my wet felting, in paintings, and with encaustic work.

Sharon

Eley

eleytwinart.blogspot.com    sharoneleyart14@gmail.com

I am an experimental artist and work with paper, fabric and found objects. My media is mixed media, collage and fluid acrylics. Nature is often a theme in my work. My goal is create a feeling of peace and tranquility and belief in a higher being.

Constance

Fisher

The focus of my art is on Expressionism. The difference between Expressionism and Abstract Art is that Expressionism does not necessarily abandon all figural or representational elements. It can often use elements of abstraction to create an emotional effect and may utilize diverse techniques to convey nontraditional and nonrepresentational images. I am particularly influenced by many artists, abstract expressionists, and by the French Impressionists. I view my art as works that create a lasting image of the ever-changing world around us, which I interpret with romantic, lyrical, and multi-hued images. My paintings are in private collections across the country. I often donate my artwork to fund raising and charitable activities.

Myths, symbols, and legends of various cultures, sometimes referring to specific historic occurrences interwoven with modern issues, are important elements in my work. I am fascinated with the effects of time on artifacts, people, events and experiences.

You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him find it within himself. — Galileo "I have been alternately surprised, gratified and puzzled by our human ability to both create and then solve our own struggles. It is as if Galileo’s quote implied that all we need is to listen to ourselves, our real selves, to grow, thrive and prosper. It seems simple, yet the compelling demands of daily life work against our ability to listen and know ourselves.


My paintings attempt to give the viewer a small space in which to focus totally on themself and their own unique responses to the piece. The images are layered, complex and non–representational. Each is intended to be a tangible and unique bit of reality for which the viewer will provide meaning."

Kathleen

Kuchar

There is something magical about being in the studio. Tubes of paint, scruffy brushes, collage materials and pristine canvas MEET to begin a layered dance. What were once elusive dreams now emerge as music to the eye and soul.

Jessica

Nojek

www.jessicanojek.com    Instagram: @JessicaNojekArt

Jessica Nojek is an abstract, acrylic painter in love with layering, texture, and gold metal leaf based in Albuquerque, NM. She works in abstract layers and gold metal leaf as a contemplation on the layers within our mind between our darkness and light; our ego and heart. In life we have moments of clarity tied to something bigger than what and who we think we are, and the back and forth in our minds and hearts between clarity and thought is the “what” that I attempt to share with others through art.

Dori

Pendergrass

I am compelled to speak in a visual way.  Choosing from an array of materials, I produce objects—mostly paintings, reliefs and sculptures—that reflect who I am.  But fascinated by something unusual or different, something that makes me curious or wonder, I reach for my camera to freeze the moment.

Barbara

Ragalyi

My art embodies the music, harmony, and mystery of the Universe, the underlying energy of our world, the music of being within all things, creating a peaceful, harmonious space wherein one can experience silence, still–point, and oneness with all.

Liz

Ruest

My work investigates our surroundings and how they interact with memory, permanence, change, and regrowth. How do we process our sense of place and the collective memories that go with it, even as it changes? By capturing images and combining hand-worked elements into digital layers, I create abstracted viewpoints that explore timelessness, familiarity, and recognition.

WarmSun

The Natural World has been for me a source of wonder and awe, sensory input, and beauty. More important, however, I have become increasingly fascinated with the elegant systems of the natural world and the interconnectedness of things. My education and career in human behavior and psychology, along with a life-long love of Native American philosophy and spirituality has enriched this sense of connectedness. My work strives to reflect the spirit of Nature and the nature of Spirit.

"My paintings are improvisational tempered by decreasing realism… Although my palette changes as I experiment, warm colors predominate; red is my favorite color. My travels and life experiences form the backdrop and intuition gives final enhancements."

Patricia

Woofter

I once read that artists paint to discover personal truth and in turn find their visual voice and develop their individual painter language. My experience indicates that there is definitely a correlation between my search for personal identity, “isness,” and my choices of what and how I paint. I use layering to interweave my outer physical and inner emotional and spiritual responses to specific natural subjects that convey a like identity necessity, “isness.” My hope is that my work speaks a painter language that resonates with like personal truth seekers.
