Walter Johnson

While growing up as a boy in Cleveland Ohio, I always wanted to be an artist. Having no exposure to the world of art, I was disappointed, but the art fire continued to burn deep within. As I grew up, the artistic desire never left. Ken Brown had a calligraphy show on PBS. He kept saying how easy it was to build up strokes to make letters. The idea intrigued me so I began to practice. I was lucky, the job I had at the time allowed me to practice, practice and practice some more.

Gim Blische

Gin Blische studied Fashion Design in New York City at FIT, and later pursued a career in the music industry with her twin sister Evi in the band INHOUSE.

Lot’s of painters do still life’s, but I prefer stiletto’s! My paintings are an homage to the art of great design – no matter where you find it.

EJ Morales

Joe Weschrek

Combining mixed media and bold colors, Joe’s works are full of hidden images that invoke positive thoughts that tell a story to the viewer. His method of painting is referred to as “automatic drawing” starting as random lines and shapes to produce surreal abstracts, landscapes, portraits and more.

Edward Trujillo

The art created by the various cultures throughout the history of New Mexico and Florida influences my artistic expressions. The expression evolves with each new piece, whether it is painted on recycled wood panels or canvas. I hope I can share my visions and feelings with each art piece.

James Rabidoux

My new work begins with the word that the painting is named for… I paint the word a few or many times on the blank canvas and then I just start “coloring” — trying to pay attention to the composition without trying to pay attention. There is NO message in my work and I pick the word based on the shapes of the letters and not the word.
