|Mark Graham||United Kingdom||Original artwork and portrait commissions by Mark Graham|
|I love to draw. I love to paint. I'm excited by the prospects of a blank canvas and by the single mark that creates form on a 2D surface; the subtleties in colour and tone. I love freedom and expression.|

|Kathi Peters||United States||Contemporary Impressionism depicting everything Equine,Canine and Natural|
"From the sanctuary of our small farm nestled in the Maine woods, to the hotbed of horse-country in Lexington, Kentucky, I have found subjects that inspire me to paint them. Light and shadow call out to be put on canvas. I move from realism to abstraction, mixing the two …. I see color, edges, movement and design everywhere I look. I need to paint them. My written word might be limited now after suffering a stroke, but my visual vocabulary is unlimited.
Casein is my medium of choice, a milk-based medium that has stood the test of time. Its earthy colors with muted hues capture the moment and mood I aspire to create. Yet I am also drawn to transparent watercolor with delicate luminous wash and fine line……and lately to oil paint with its vibrant colors when painted on an archival copper substrate.
With every painting, I am striving to tell a story, trying to invoke a memory and hopefully I can touch a heart."

I began painting in my youth. My parents enrolled me into plein aire classes and I took it from there. Later I took a classic airbrushing class at my local junior college. Other than that I am self taught. Seeing the direction modern art has taken, I'm glad I missed the indoctrination. Don't misunderstand me. I like the freedom afforded by the notion that anything can be considered art. Where I disconnect is with the onslaught of casual work that requires little to no thought, effort or skill.
To me the choice of topic is of utmost importance. If you are sacrificing a portion of your brief mortal existence to create something, it ought to be significant. Again aspects of the modern movement such as "I have nothing significant to say, and I'm saying it" do not resonate with me. To all such participants in the modern art movement, I say "please find a new pastime."
I mostly agree with the following
May the art world recover and regain respect from those who would appreciate effort in creativity.

|ian hufton||United Kingdom||Ian Hufton Photography|
|I am a photographer based in East Kent. My work mainly consists of the environment around me. Since my childhood I have loved the outdoors. My obsession with outdoor sports such as rock climbing and mountainboarding has strengthened this bond. I have traveled to many inspirational places but I am always pleased to find great photo opportunities and unique moments to capture, which are equally rewarding here on my doorstep.|
|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.

|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. You can find more about Mary and her artwork on her website http://www.marydunn-pittsburghartist.com.
