Gabriele Childs finds her inspiration in the everyday, be it a shape, feel, color or impression. Her work defies categorization with its varying subject matters, styles, techniques and materials. "Always, though, I am drawn to texture," Gabriele said. "It builds the foundation and inspires the direction of each painting. My goal is to let the viewer find his or her own interpretation of each work, hidden in the details."
Jill Lindsay began her formal art training in 2002 at the Visual Arts Center. She has been creating ever since. She is an eclectic artist who loves exploring different mediums, from acrylics to collage to resin. When Jill was introduced to alcohol inks, it was love at first sight. "Alcohol inks provide a color and fluidity that I have not seen in any other medium," she said. "They inspire me."
Howard Spielman spent his professional life as an art educator and an award-winning creator of television shows. He also wrote a couple of books along the way. But he always made time for his art. Howard became interested in digital art several years ago. He says the medium allows him to "paint with pixels." In his work, he attempts to make what we see as insignificant, such as a single fallen leaf, significant and to make the complex accessible.
