|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.

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.
|Over the past decade and a half, I have worked on various themes and mediums. However I have found my calling in Abstract/Contemporary Indian mythology - as bright and expressive as India. My influence and inspiration are first colors, bright colors and then almost everything I see, imagine, feel, believe and do not believe in.|

|Pavelle Fine Art||United States||Pavelle Fine Art|
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.
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.

|Jimy Sloan is from Sackville, Nova Scotia and graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in May 2012 with a BFA, Fine Arts Major in Painting. His canvases reference aspects of his environment. Imagery from photographs, magazines, newspapers, public archives and the internet is combined and used to create overlaid and interwoven painted images. These paintings become a way to create non-verbal stories which relate places, events, characters and objects. They are an attempt to create images in motion; an idea which is informed by painting, video and aural traditions.|
