Kelly Barnett                   etsy.com/shop/SilverBrushStudios
"Sharing beauty, serenity, inspiration, and even drama  with others drives me to paint. My abstract, acrylic, multi-layered  paintings are my dreamscapes -  evocative of the varied land and  seascapes which inspire me. I prefer to paint from my imagination and  intuition rather than a picture or sketch."
I am a self taught artist who believes that art  has to be created from  the soul and speak to the soul. I am an impressionist and expressionist   who loves to create happy vibrant positive paintings on canvas via  acrylics and/or mixed media.i believe that out of the box is always  within reach.

His work rides the cusp between abstract and expressionistic."

My art is about constant response. Every brush stroke or act has a very specific way it has to be done. It has to feel fresh and precise. Unexpected combinations often lead to a mystic effect.  Painting, sculpting, photographing, video or performance, are all used to create my work.

Janet Felton

As a former graphic designer my interest in the arts in not only 2D. I love to draw as well as work in ceramics. The forms I create in porcelain are functional and refined. I also have created a whimsical population of porcelain polar bears in order to call attention to the plight of their loss of habitat. My drawings are my attempt to capture the personality/essence of the animal or subject.
