|Catriona MacEachen||United Kingdom||Paintings of Scotland. Online landscape and seascape gallery of professional Scottish artist Catriona MacEachen.|
Catriona Macdonald MacEachen lives in Fife and works as a professional artist.
Art has been her passion for as long as she can remember and although mainly self taught, she excelled in Art at school and went on to specialise in Art while undertaking an Education degree in Glasgow.
She was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife and although a proud Fifer, her roots are firmly embedded in the Hebrides and North West of Scotland. Regular trips there greatly influence her work.
Catriona's work is influenced primarily by her love of nature and wildlife. The intense colours, perpetually changing light, perfect forms and dramatic land and seascapes of the natural world of her homeland are a constant source of fascination and inspiration.
She uses a variety of media depending on the mood or atmosphere she wishes to reflect. She often works in acrylic to capture the vivid hues of a dramatic Hebridean sunset. She may use pastel to create a softer mood or sometimes oils for seamless blending of colours in a portrait.
Catriona's artwork is growing increasingly popular and she has many pieces in private collections both in the UK and abroad.
She successfully exhibited at Heron Gallery during Pittenweem Arts Festival in August 2011 and in January 2012 at The Airport Gallery, Edinburgh. She will also be exhibiting at The Airport Gallery from March to July 2012. Catriona is currently exhibiting at Pitlochry Festival Theatre until April 2012 and will shortly be exhibiting some pieces at Merchant Gate Gallery in Glasgow. From April 2012 she will also be exhibiting at Artery Gallery in St. Andrews and then she has a solo exhibition of her new work back at Pitlochry Festival Theatre in the River Room in Summer 2012 (16th July - 31st October).

|Laura Ficarra||United States||Art Website|
Laura Ficarra was born and raised in New York by Italian immigrants. Early in life she was exposed to art and culture both in New York and Italy. She always admired the masters and still looks at their work with awe and inspiration.
Although, she has been exploring all genres and mediums, her true passion lies within her abstract acrylic paintings.
Her favorite artists include but are not limited to Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman.
When asked what painting means to her, she responded :
"Painting is an expression of the soul, poetry with paint,
Textured music, floating notes, rhythmic strokes, Creations from within,
Exploration of color wrapped within creative construction of collages combined with medium and paint.
Creations from within varying according to emotions, an expression of the soul.

|Carol Chipkin||Canada||Carol Chipkin's Original Paintings for Sale and Prints|
|Carol Chipkin has a B.A. in Fine Art from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg where she was born and educated. She moved to Vancouver 17 years ago and says that living in a stunning city like Vancouver invigorates her, just as the creative process does, both soothing her spirit and clearing the noise of life for hours at a time. She has always been oriented to the more decorative with a passion for colour, which probably originated during the time she was a textile designer. Her work is most frequently mixed media and uses colour strongly without being brash.|
|Robert Kaupelis||United States||Artist Robert Kaupelis|
I want my paintings to offer a perceptual parade of multiple and diverse visual confrontations at once obvious and ambiguous; paintings that surprise me, which make the viewer say "WOW"! Hopefully, they are found beautiful and emotionally imperative. Frequently there are rich, painterly areas which contrast with hard-edge stripes or other geometric forms and impacted color that is dynamic, seductive, lyrical, loud, brash, beautiful and, hopefully, beguiling. Buildling/destroying, finding/losing, finding I love to paint.
|Rochelle Carr||United States||Rochelle Carr Fine Art|
|An abstract expressionist titles the the category I find myself exploring today, yet my work began with mixed media creations: fiber arts, mosaic tiled work, metal sculpture, and jewelry. As my art turned to painting, I evolved to the form you see today: sculpture on wood (or canvas) to form works with an impasto-like two-dimensional depth complete with layers and layers of paint. I have been working and selling mixed media and fine art paintings for more than 18 years. My innovative, whimsical, playful style blends the tactile depth of sculpture (using paint or wall plaster) with the rich tones of acrylics, oils, and 23-karat gold leaf. My life is inspired by two themes, and you can find both in my art and poetry. A heart theme in my work expresses the soul-felt theme that guides me: “Follow your heart.” Iridescent accents and deep contrasting colors carry my personal motto “Live out loud.” “Adventure lies not in the places we seek, but in the moments we create in the places we treasure.” –RMC|
|Valorie Preston||Canada||FB page featuring latest work and inspiration.|
In a world where colours collide, where laughter runs with tears and contradictions abound, I reside. Driven by the desire to reconcile growth with patience, love with despair and pain with experience,I paint. I paint to grow, to explore and to expose the world I see and imagine. I paint for the world I want and for the one that we have.
While I have always been an artist, I have not only been a visual artist. I have run election campaigns, been Chief of Staff in a premier’s office, taught high school English, coached winning softball teams and run national sport offices.
For the past twenty years I have focused exclusively on creating a business for my art, both through local and internationals sales, shows and personal development. I continue to pursue greater learning, more varied experiences and different mediums of expression.
A few years ago, I traveled to South East Asia, and studied the ancient art of the Cambodian Temples of Angkor Wat and the contemporary art of Viet Nam. Returning to Costa Rica often to challenge myself to try to express my vision in simpler, bolder ways.
A month in an isolated art workshop in Atlin, British Columbia; the experience of painting after attending an intense Aboriginal Healing Circle in Nares, Yukon, traveling to the far North and dipping my toes in the Arctic Ocean are experiences that find their way into my art.
Worked with mixed and multiple media; experimenting with Yupo and Mylar,and recently, I using oil on a type of Alumalite keeps my work fresh. Regardless of the medium or the subject, the strongest elements in all my work are colour and texture. Whether haunting faces or spiritual quests, with the use of vibrant colours and the play of light and dark, I suggest the powerful emotions and the narrative that is in my head.

|Grant Burke||Canada||Displays the photorealism artwork of contemporary Canadian artist Grant Burke|
|Grant Burke was born and raised in Newmarket, Ontario. He has had a passion for visual arts his whole life, constantly sketching or painting in his spare time. He spent his high school career attending St. Andrews College in Aurora, Ontario. It was at St. Andrews that Grant was able to branch out into different divisions of art such as sculpture, electronic media, print making and photography. Grant's true passion however, lies with painting. Working primarily with oil paints, the artist developed a signature technique of creating realistic still life pieces that are truly captivating. His method of handling paint produces an overall effect of mysterious distance, nearly photographic in its realistic rendering of texture and color. His work has been featured in many auctions as well as many households across Ontario. Grant recently completed his Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) at Queen's Univeristy and will soon be attending Humber College in Toronto to begin the Advertising and Graphic Design Program.|
|Kirsten Lei||United States||Kirsten Lei - Fine art abstract oil painter|
|I grew up overseas. At the time naive to the experience that was, to me, daily life. Looking back, I now see how experiencing foreign cultures has shaped my views and become part of the person I am today. I am passionate about all of life. Nothing centers me more than spending time with my hands in the dirt, playing in the sun, or standing at my easel covered in paint, coaxing life onto an empty canvas, inspired by my own thoughts and by the world I see. I am not a painter, I paint...to give love, beauty, life, but mostly to give of myself. My abstracts are colorfully organic conveying a sense of depth, mystery and light.|
|Terry Simmons||United States||Photo Art||
Terry Simmons was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1950, and resides in Columbia, Missouri. He managed a St. Louis camera shop for several years. His interest in photography has made itself at home on the “commercial side” – shooting weddings and portraits, as well as the “artistic side” – participating in art and photography shows. He is a member of the Columbia Art League, and the Community Exhibits Program.
Most of the work you see on this website are photographs originating on 35mm transparencies. His preference for traditional Nikon, Canon, and Hasselblad prevailed for many years over digital cameras, although he now uses Nikon digital equipment.
“I've lived in four states, spent time in most of the others, and visited Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean. I’ve never left home without a camera, and what you see on this site are results of those travels. If there are 100 people with cameras all pointed the same direction, I assume the better shot is somewhere else”
“Photography is an art form. Any means that enables a person to convey an emotion or message is a form of art. Some of us paint, some of us craft, some of us play an instrument, sing or dance, and some of us enjoy photography. Thankfully, each of us is created as a unique individual.”
