Vernon Finney

Vernon Finney's career as an artist spans over 50 years. He has divided his time between the commercial art world where he earned his living, and his personal indulgence in the pure art. He should, therefore, be counted amongst the very few, privileged artists who are able to paint as they wish. The majority of Vernon's work is held in private collections, but he seems reluctant to part company with them, as they are so much a part of him.

Shelly

“I have always had a great appreciation for the beauty of nature and a desire to share that beauty with others. Being a native Californian, I have never taken for granted the natural beauty which has surrounded me. Photographing nature and sharing my images with others was a natural course of events. My images portray nature’s treasures often unnoticed (or undetected) in our fast paced society.”

Malcolm Doran

Painting the figure has always been paramount with me but how I went about it has changed over the years. Early on De Kooning’s action painting influenced me, and later the child-like freshness of Picasso’s drawing helped me to render the figure the way I wanted to portray it. In reality there have been many artists that have helped my art to evolve. The Dutch painters Rembrandt and VanGogh taught me a lot about portrait painting. From the French painters Cézanne and Bonnard I learned about structure and color. Now I’m using all of these to convey my message in the pictures I paint.

In her own words: “I am an Artist. TAG is my name. 333 is the game. I play in all realms and mediums. I tend to lean more towards Adult Fantasy Art and Modern Ethics, idolizing the femme fatale. However, in my eternally kinetic lifestyle, I can be compelled to create anything. Inspiration is everywhere.”

About her personal life: “I don't kiss and tell.”

Locke Heemstra

California native Locke Heemstra first became intrigued with capturing a setting’s unique essence on film during a Boy Scout camping trip in the High Sierra. “I was in awe being surrounded by so much natural beauty. Then I realized that with the help of my camera, I could bring it home and enjoy it again and again.”
Locke decided to pursue a career in photography and enrolled in the photojournalism program at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California. He returned to the San Francisco Peninsula after graduation and began exhibiting his work in juried art shows in the mid 1990s.

Fortune Sitole

I want to foster an awareness of the conditions suffered by South Africans, who create makeshift shelters by optimizing outside space and leftover materials - metal, tires, stones, etc., whatever they can find to build their homes. Fashioning my work as homage to my ancestors, family and community, these pieces are a reminder of the day-to-day life in black South African townships. But shanties exist throughout the world and my art actually tells a story of the universality of poverty.

Linda & Charles Perkins

We have been ‘artners’ sculpting wire for about eight years now, partners for over 30 years. We are self-taught and work from the inspiration found in everyday life. Much of our work is made from recycled, re-purposed materials. Bohemians and scavengers at heart, we believe things often have another beauty - another life - after its original purpose is complete. And it is our job to find it. Most of our pieces tell stories, stories that manifest over time. In layers. They evolve organically, and observers tend to have their own intuitive experience with the work.

Robert Kawika Sheer

These pictures are all performance-art photographs; no Photo Shop or multiple exposures were used in their creation. They’re all taken at night with long single exposures lasting from 45 minutes up to six hours. I use a large-format 4x5 view camera with 20 square-inch negatives. After I open the shutter of my camera, I enter the frame (sometimes accompanied by my wife Ingela) and become a performer within the scene.

Stephan Canthal

Contemporary artist and photographer Stephan Canthal became involved in the art of photography while studying architecture at the University of Southern California in 1991. He transferred to California State University, Long Beach in 1994 to pursue a Fine Arts degree in photography. His signature iconographic images of industrial Los Angeles are suggestive of his architectural background and trained eye for structure, space, and substrate. With his fresh, imaginative approach to photography, Canthal began to experiment with unconventional photographic mediums. He wanted to merge traditional photography and modern art, breaking old rules through original composition and cutting-edge presentation.

Scott Slagerman

At the forefront of glass sculpture, Scott's work is often organic in form and subject: Seeds, plant buds, and other shapes give the impression of being grown rather than shaped by hand.

His work is featured around the world, and included in many international design and fashion magazines.

Best of Both Worlds

Best of Both Worlds

Snake Jagger

Snake Jagger refers to his artistic style as Whimsical Surrealism. He is an artist who, while dedicated to the subtle exposition of his personal philosophy, doesn’t take himself too seriously and is comfortable working with his tongue planted firmly in cheek. Jagger’s work is clearly surrealist in demeanor, but there is no hint of the Daliesque allegory here. Rather, Jagger’s work seems to draw a significant part of its compositional inspiration from Rene Magritte. Jagger, like Magritte, is able to juxtapose the most mundane of objects in a manner that convinces us to accept the entire image, regardless of its disparities, as a wholly realistic depiction. In Magritte’s paintings, we are not taken aback by locomotives roaring out of fireplaces or by swarms of levitating British businessmen soaring above the rooftops. And so it is with Jagger’s work; once the mind’s eye has recorded the presence and positioning of these incongruous objects, it then becomes almost impossible to imagine the painting existing without them.

Danny Heller

Danny Heller was born in Northridge, CA in 1982. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, the artist was able to carefully study the golden landscape of Los Angeles. Although his visual vocabulary was expanding, these observations would turn up only later in his body of work. For formal art instruction, Danny left the Valley for the College of Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While studying under California landscape painter Hank Pitcher, Danny earned a B.A. in art with an emphasis in painting. After formative years spent capturing Santa Barbara’s surf landscapes, Danny’s attention turned toward retro iconography characteristic of mid-century Los Angeles. Moving back to the Valley and setting up his studio in Chatsworth, the artist now concentrates on chronicling Modern American imagery, specifically focusing on the architecture, signage, and car culture found in Southern California.

Angela Nellas

Born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, art has always been apart of my life.  In 2003, I graduated from California State University San Bernardino with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Fine Art.  It was there, I learned how much the art of painting brings me joy and ultimately satisfies my soul.

Currently residing in La Quinta, California, I have since kept the art of painting close at hand. I learned that my artist abilities shall always be my choice of survival in this caotic world. That said, I hope to share my painting concepts with those who endure art in all its forms and wonders.

Scott Worden

As with many artists, Scott Worden has been fascinated with art his whole life. Growing up in the upper North West portion of the country, in the beautiful emerald forests just below the Canadian border, he grew up and currently lives in Bellingham, Washington. Anyone who visits this gorgeous green area find it impossible to disregard the breathtaking landscapes, a fact that Mr. Worden has not overlooked, “I hope my paintings reveal the beauty of the Northwest to people who have never had the opportunity to see for themselves.”

With no formal art education other than his own rigid self-discipline he never forgets to credit the masters that influenced his art. “I love so many artists, but there are really only four artists that I can say really influenced my style: Bev Doolittle’s Native American realism and hidden imagery, Thomas Kincaid ‘s use of light, M.C. Escher’s thought –provoking illustrations, and Audrey Flack's incredible airbrushing.”

Jude Bischoff

Jude Bischoff is an athlete, naturalist, father, dreamer, and artist who revels in the natural energy of the world around him. Trained as a fine artist, Jude received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bowling Green State University.

The natural world swims through my paintings like a fat bellied fish in a surreal colored mountain stream. My art reflects the extreme energy encountered in negotiating the outdoor landscape and the joy I find in exploring both outer and inner worlds. At its heart is a profound connection to the known and the great-unknown. The natural universe—icy restless peaks, opaque water pools, the exceptional humanity and beauty of human endeavor and the supernatural universe— the spirit world casting its energy through rocks, ravines, chasms, and human behavior.

Cyndi Schatzmann

I was born in New York City where as a little girl I dreamed about being an artist in Soho, painting in my little studio --- not a big space, but just enough.

Lifeand many dreams both realized and imagined have come and gone since those days. But still, each day holds wonder for me and the canvas of colorful people and places unfold as the sun rises and sets over the mountains and ocean. I’m inspired by moments, the world around me, and the people that have touched my soul and contributed to the colorful palette that has become my life..

Each painting represents a feeling, a moment, a memory and a small part of me that finds its way to canvas. They all start as a blank canvas and begin to change, grow, and transform into something... the past, present, and future.

Ora Tamir

Trying to describe Ora's paintings is like trying to describe dreams. Using soft sable brushes and oil paints, symbolic stories are created. Her surreal sensual paintings express basic emotions and tap into the intricate human web. Ora's art has futuristic quality and haunting beauty. Paintings are not planned they are purely intuitive. Every original is a long labor of love.

Michael Ruffini

Ruffini's diverse studies view a contemporary abstracted figurative interaction with the utmost love of life with one another. His works are a true dynamic interpretation in his passion and emotion of human feelings. This portrait of life expresses a great impact on us in our travel and cultural experiences, a "style unique to the artist." The artist has an uncanny eye for color and composition in his technique and style and is able to create the aspect of true dimension giving the canvas life and vitality.

 

John Neumann

“Working in metal presents a multitude of difficulties. On a positive side, every piece of work has its own meaning, but underlying that strive to achieve a sense of movement and energy in my work. By putting the various elements in conflict with one another I hope to create the tension needed to achieve this goal. I hope when viewers look at my artwork that they experience a sense of optimism and the feeling that there is a certain nobility in man.”

John's artwork is featured at the Red Dot Gallery in Palm Springs.

David Schlegel

The images in David Schlegel’s art are derived from the landscapes and architecture of the temperate zones – quiet places which could be in the South West, Mexico, Greece or Turkey, where he hs traveled, or the deserts and coast of southern California where he lives and works in Carlsbad.

His work, particularly his drawings, are calligraphic and evoke a sense of place – part fantasy, part reality – rendered in a personal style with strong linear emphasis.
