|Pierre van Dijk||France||Impressionist living and working in France.|
L E M A Î T R E D E D E M A I N
Pierre van Dijk was born on 5 June 1950 in ’s-Hertogenbosch. At the age of only 4 Pierre wants to draw and paint in all quiet. On his tenth birthday he is given his first ‘real’ set of oil paint, palette and canvas.
In 1954 he and his family move to The Hague. This is where he studies at the Royal Academy for Fine Arts (NL)(1967 – 1972). From 1972 to 1974 he pursues his studies at the Free Academy (NL) guided personally by Livinus van der Bunt, rector of the academy as well as artist. A great number of exhibitions – both in the Netherlands as well as abroad – follow from 1974 onwards.
In the course of the eighties Pierre became more and more internally driven to capture the phenomena of light and colour in all their splendour. Pierre developed a unique palette, style and vision. This vision, the typical use of colours and his handling of light have become famous and trademark Pierre’s impressionist paintings. His vision can be described as vitalist optimism; he paints the beauty of life. His use of colours can be called contradictory. Through the use of a refined combination of a limited number of base colours he achieves an inimitable wealth of colours. His use of light is more than just lighting; it does not fall externally on the object or scene; it is mostly a light from within. Pierre van Dijk colours life and exposes a world of light.
In 1998 Pierre decided to open a gallery in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, together with his partner Arieke (died 2003) and his brother Christiaan. The dream to set up another gallery in France came true when the two brothers opened a gallery in the medieval town of Beynac, origin of impressionism.
The gallery is surrounded by historic monuments and the overwhelming nature of Dordogne.
Pierre is represented by several Fine Art Galleries in Switserland, France, Holland and in the USA
|Cheryl Tomkin||Indonesia||Artist Cheryl Tomkin, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia, Fun and Creative Art.|
Cheryl is Australian and spends most of her time in Ubud, Bali Indonesia with her husband. In Bali she is inspired by everything around her on a daily basis.
Cheryl's paintings are bright, bold and fun; they leap off the canvases and many people have asked her to paint commissions for them. All she wanted was to explore her hidden artistic dreams, however as Cheryl is evolving, her art seems to change with every brush stroke and loves the journey she is now on. Cheryl's style is hard to define but could be cubism/abstract/pop/surreal/fantasy art and her art is the main passion and focus in her life.
Upon journeying to the beautiful paradise island of Bali and particularly Ubud, Cheryl had the good fortune of meeting Mr Bruce Sherratt, a renowned artist and teacher, originally from the UK but now resides in Ubud and founded a fantastic art studio, BCAC (Bali Center for Artistic Creativity) in the Nyoman Ada Gallery, Andong Rd.
Bruce changed her artistic life and gave her the knowledge and tools to hone her skills and she is now truly living her dream.
Not only does Cheryl paint, but she writes poetry (published) and also writing her first novel at the moment. Cheryl has also edited a newly released book, Odyle Knight's "Hippos Eat Grass - Busting the Fat Myth" and designs/makes jewellery pieces, some of which are placed on the canvases for extra effects.
Cheryl is now in the throws of painting and putting together art pieces for her upcoming solo exhibition very soon.

I’m Denis AKA Ditch The Kitsch (DDTK) Conceptual Artist and T-shirt designer from Argentina.
I look out for the vibrations that unleash creativity hoping to depict my essence through art. It's like a passionate longing to let it all out.
I get inspired by the Universe around me and the one in my mind. When designing I try to imagine the happy owner of the T-shirt making an impression, looking cool while having a great time, feeling uplifted!…It’s high boost for my inspiration.

|El Bravo||Philippines||El Bravo Online Art Gallery|
"When I was a small kid my grandma used to scold me because I drew on walls, magazines and almost all surfaces that invite me to draw on. My first love is art and it's my world ever since. I live and had my schooling days in the Philippines. I gave up some days of my artistic life to motherhood and my business career but, still, I wasted lots of papers and bought books for artistic improvements. When my three sweet kids grew up, I figured it's time to share my art to the world. With the help of my talented daughter, I was able to sell my art through the internet. My daughter is my business partner and marketing manager.
I do portrait, abstract, still life, landscape and figurative arts. I have a line of paintings where you can choose from or you may commission me on the artistic design you want by contacting me."
|Mary Dunn||United States||Mary Dunn-PittsburghArtist|
Mary Dunn, born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in 1952, and has been living all her life around the suburb of West Mifflin, not far from the big city. As with many artists, she was drawing and oil painting most of her life. Her love for art never ceases and through the years, it has become a way of expression and relaxation.
Mostly self taught, Mary Dunn has worked primarily in oils; however, recently she has been working in pastels, acrylics, and watercolors.
While in college, Mary minored in art. Although she would have loved to have been an art major, at that time, she was a single parent and felt it necessary to major in business to take care of her two daughters. After college, she could not devote time to her art work, but now that her children have grown, there is more time to create and enjoy painting.
Mary works full time as a project manager but her evenings are spent either at the canvas or reading about various artist techniques. “It is a wonderful feeling to be creative in a way that people enjoy and appreciate. When my work is displayed, whether it is a pet portrait, a landscape, or a floral, the satisfaction of being the creator of an image brings such joy to my life.”
As an emerging artist, Mary’s exhibitions have included The Jewish Community Center (Mt. Lebanon, PA), The Galaxie (Chicago, Illinois) and the Iris and Ivory Tea Room (Emerling Plaza, Indianola, PA). Her artwork has been featured on “Infuze”, a website magazine, as well as “Art Bistro”. Currently, some of Mary's art hangs in the Gallery Sim and the Hoffman Gallery.
Mary holds a B.S. Degree in Business Management and a Masters Degree in Public Management. She is also a member of the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League where she is the Secretary and is responsible for the monthly newsletter.

i am benedict edet, a professional artist from akwa ibom state practising at abuja, nigeria. studied fine and applied arts at the university of nigeria, nsukka, between 1985 and 1990 graduating with a second class upper division and specializing in painting.
born on the 16th of october, 1964 at onike, yaba, in lagos, south west nigeria to mr, alphonsus thomas edet, who till his death in 1982, was a french teacher at the st. timothy,s college, iwaya, lagos, though also literate in greek and latin had settled at lagos with his then wife, anna, a trader at the popular tejuosho market, before the beginning of the biafran civil war in 1967.
while i attended the st. patrick,s catholic school, yaba, from 1970, i noticed i had developed a keen interest in drawing, i was making pencil sketches on my school notebooks with special inspiration from comic books like spider man, captain america, hulk, etc. i was also inspired by kenny adamson, a painter that lived in the neigbhourhood a few houses away. i would peep through his no. 7, majaro street studio and watched him paint for hours and then would collect left over squeezed paint tubes he threw away to work with and in 1979 i made my first painting,a portrait in acrylics.
after my father,s death in 1982, i left lagos to calabar, where i was admitted to continue my secondary school education at the hope waddell training institute.
during my years of study at the university of nigeria, nsukka, under professor obiora udechukwu and professor el anatsui, especially, i began to develop a personal style of painting that had underlying influences from broken or cracked wall tiles as i was fascinated by the geometrically sinuous nature of the lines created by the cracks.

|Jim Pavelle||United States||Pavelle Fine Art Gallery|
I live in Marina, California, a mile from Monterey Bay and about 12 miles from downtown Monterey. Monterey was made famous by Salinas native John Steinbeck with his book, 'Cannery Row', among many others.
Within easy driving reach are the communities of Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, Carmel Valley, Salinas, Big Sur, Moss Landing, Santa Cruz, and Yosemite as well as most of Northern California.
Other subject-matter locations will include, Hawaii, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Great Britain, Ireland and possibly the Netherlands.
My work begins with my composing photographs while on location, bringing them into my computer and enriching, enhancing and/or manipulating the subject. I don't have one specific style but like to play with context, mood, shapes, and feeling. I know, these are all squishy-feely explanations. I just want my work to look good, be enjoyed by others, and to be showered with newly minted doubloons I can make into piles and jump into.
My professional credentials are equally impressive. I went to college in Northwestern Ohio, majored in Graphic Design with a degree in Fine Arts, which I didn't receive because I flunked Italian. I've painted in acrylics and oils, fabricated jewelry, constructed sculptures, built facades of Victorian Houses and other historic buildings using balsa and Elmer's Glue, been a production artist, designer, creative director, marketing director, business owner, and will make beer runs if everyone chips in. I was even a licensed street artist in the City of San Francisco. I used to freeze my ass off every weekend sitting down at the Embarcadero.
