|Cornelia Rijkaart van Cappellen (1973) is a Dutch fine art painter. She acquired a strong foundational education in art in Florence (Italy) while being trained in the old masters techniques. The resulting work reveals a personal and contemporary expression of beauty while paying homage to the Classical tradition of craftsmanship. Cornelia works from Italy but accepts portrait commissions from all over Europe.|
|Karan Mladen||Italy||Mladen Karan is a serbian painter arrived in Tuscany, and in his work the earth and the sky of these places are the object of contemplation transfiguring. Karan reads the nature to learn to master the material.|
He was born on 1951 in Velika Žuljevica, which belong to Novi Grad's municipality (ex.Bosanski Novi).
He finished high school in Novi Grad. From 1970 to 1973 he was studding philosophy and sociology on Zagreb 's university. After short stay in Milano he started to study painting on Academy of visual arts in Zagreb on 1997, where graduated in class of professor Vasilije Jordan on 1982.
The modern human resides in the essential shape of a man, and painter Karan, not hiding his feeling towards the world he lives in, does not hide nowadays’ belittled compassion, and that is why he contests with the history which ails him. And he contests at a place where history gathers its burden and its power, tragic and triumph, but also indifference.
The capability to feel and create the universal out of local, took him in a labyrinth in which the matters and moods can be sought.
Since he specifically named the paintings, he sets them up in an exceptionally utilized contest. The irony and criticism, even the condemnation that he appended to them, are the artist’s utterance which he condemns. Staying totally in the domain of visual arts, his outcry, condemnation, and warning, do not transform to a political leaflet.
The place, time and people are the three coordinates which define the artistic happening, and so Karan – by choosing Prijedor and not, let’s say, Milan, as a place where he presents his Labyrinth – undoubtedly grinds the blade of his critical stance. The Labyrinth in which the Minotaur already created a “jumble” and left him is a territory where the painter literally situates his work, and then – invites the audience to join him and recognize the evil which surrounds us all. More precisely, in which we reside even if we are not there where Karan located the Labyrinth.

|Heather Lee Grieb||United States||Lucky H ARt||
Those special people who have been privileged to feel the magic of being friends with a horse will understand that you want to carry that mystical feeling with you at all times. Non-horse people don’t
understand why our homes and even cars are decorated with the image of the horse. For most, it’s simple we want to be reminded of that horse magic at all times.
As an artist, Heather is obsessed with painting horses. It started
with painting her quarter horse on her purse because, she wanted to keep him next to her even in normal every day life. Then painting a jacket for a friend as a gift...
This was the beginning of Lucky H Art. Lucky because any girl is
extremely lucky if she has a horse. H due to that’s what many call her. Since then, Heather has painted and sold over 200 purses, wallets, jackets, wall art, boots and other leather goods.
Heather’s artist career true highlight was having a custom order
canvas at the supreme court offices and then having the client create her Christmas cards with the image of the canvas. Lucky H Art creations have been sent as far as Israel and carried in a boutique in Canada.
Each piece is one of a kind art work and can never be duplicated (even by the artist). Heather uses specially designed paints for painting on leather and special leather sealers to ensure each art piece stands up to a cowgirls life.

|Andrew Cowdell||United Kingdom||Fine Art in Oil.com is an online gallery of original oil paintings by Andrew Cowdell, MA.|
My oil painting is founded on a combination of formal art training and self-teaching. Taking beauty as a basis, it is my response to what life allows me to glimpse occasionally. I like to combine detailed and accurate observations with background restraint and simplicity, often to evoke a distinctive contemporary aesthetic. It is this highly personal way in which I select, enhance, or eliminate elements in my paintings which I hope captures the essence of my subjects.
I hold a BA(Hons) degree in scientific illustration, and an MA in Museology, including an internship at the Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC. I live and work in West Berkshire, UK.

|Karen Cortese||United States|
I love nature and wildlife and have been a horse lover since birth. Animals and the beauty of nature continue to inspire me to create art. I want people see through my eyes what they may
be missing and appreciate the natural world around us.
I am constantly working at the things I love, from slate paintings of colorful American birds and other wildlife to the amusing and well-crafted signs cleverly burned in different types of wood.
Here is some information on my background.
I went to Carrick High School in Pittsburgh from 1972 - 1976 and took art as my elective. I had no other formal art training and am fully self-taught. I strive to learn new mediums and find new challenges rewarding.
I was a small child when I started dabbling in art. If I had a piece of chalk, the road outside
our house became my canvas until the chalk ran out. When that happened in the middle of a
picture, I would find a soft rock to finish. Any paper in our house was drawn upon. I continued
my creative interest throughout my life. However, due to life’s complications, there was a period of 20 years that I did not create any artwork at all.
My love for animals (even reptiles and rodents) and nature continues to inspire my creativity
of rustic art. I am a self-taught artist with no formal training, who will sometimes struggle with
a new medium. I am not afraid to try something new, I even tried my hand at wood carving
and made a couple of clocks all of which were sold.
Thank you for reading my bio, and have a good day.

|Louisa Boyd||United Kingdom||Artist's website|
My work is inspired by the natural world, and the human connection with it. Despite the fact that many of us live detached from the natural environment in cities with lives governed by technology, we are still able to understand the powerful symbolism that nature depicts. We can relate to these themes with ease, understanding that a bird in flight can display freedom, a flock can demonstrate companionship and a forest pathway can show a personal journey. My interest in this area has developed over a series of personal experiences and events that have led me to feel at a distance from nature; periods of my life where I have lived in cities and found it difficult to experience quiet and serenity. It is during these periods of time that I recognise how important the natural environment is to me and long to immerse myself in it and portray it through my work. Consequently the themes of restriction and freedom consistently recur in my pieces.
Working with books sculpturally allows me to represent these ideas. Pages can be used restrictively and may only give glimpses of the information within them due to cut work, the way that they are bound and exhibited. Many of my books are not meant to be opened with pages turned, instead viewed only as a 3D form. Some books depict birds flying from them, released from their binding, others use the edges of the pages to show a broken image of a landscape.
Materials and technique play an important role in all the pieces, and I dedicate a lot of time to experimenting with paper, paint and printmaking, pushing materials and understanding what they do. I enjoy the sometimes unpredictable nature of the material. The conscious decision to leave some of my artist books without covers exposes them and their message and further alludes to the delicacy of our natural world.
