Cortaderia Selloana — The watercolors of Edna Carla Stradioto

The theme of that particular series is Cortaderia Selloana, known as pampas grass. I went on holidays by car to South of Brazil and I discovered fields and fields of rosae pampas grass all over the place. On the wind, they look like plumage and it is like a spectacular ballet from nature. When I came back home, I could not avoid the idea of paint...

The encaustic art of Sierra Barber

My name is Sierra Barber. I am an OCADU graduate, and a self-taught encaustic artist, currently based in Port Dover ON, Canada. I’ve been working with beeswax for nearly ten years. I began to experiment with the ancient technique of painting with wax after it had been described to me by a family member. When I first started, the process was...

The Zentangle art of Lavanya

My name is Lavanya and I am a self taught zentangle inspired artist. Zentangle is a meditative form of art that uses different patterns to create designs. Each design is hand drawn by me and is one of a kind. All designs are abstract in nature.

Dionisio Jacob’s luscious landscapes

My name is Dionisio Jacob and I’m a writer and visual artist living in the Brazilian city of São Paulo. For many years I taught art class for kids, and I’ve always been influenced by the type of direct expression that children have in their work. Maybe that’s why I like to use strong and defined colors in my acrylic paintings. I...

Rick Mosher’s anthropomorphic, mirrored wood images

I create anthropomorphic characters from mirrored wood images. I started making these out of figured wood while working at cabinet shops as a finisher. I would band saw the wood and book match the cut boards, gluing them back together to create faces I saw in the grain of the wood. I don’t like naming my Woodies as it is more fun to see what...

The eclectic work of Clayton High

My name is Clayton High, and I create all sorts of gifs, animations and illustrations. I also like taking the occasional photograph. I always seek out unique design in my animation and ways to create something that hasn’t been done before, or expand on an idea or concept. I love the idea of abstract shapes and forms interacting with more...

The doodles of Lisa Kogawa

Hello! I am a young Japanese doodler who currently draws in Los Angeles. I’ve been drawing since I was little and it has always been part of my life. Sometimes I tend to like the act of drawing itself rather than a outcome. While I draw, I focus to give ‘breathe’ to the lines so the drawing can be ‘alive’ and...
