"The Art of Art for me is not in the knowing how to start a piece but in the knowing when to stop." - AmyB
I am inspired by many things I see in life, but mostly I'm attracted to water, flowers, birds and landscapes...the things that bring me peace. I work in the legal field by day and paint by night and weekends. I work in oils and in acrylics on canvas using either palette knives or brushes (and sometimes both). I'm also an emerging Potter! I was honored when one of my paintings was displayed in Times Square at the 2012 Art Takes Times Square takeover by See|Me and featured for 3 months in 2014 at See|Me Galleries in New York. I have also shown my work at several local venues. I'm a member of the Eastern Shore Art Center and the Mobile Arts Guild.
Mobile, Alabama-based artist Sally Adams Trufant has worked with clay since her high school days in New Orleans.
I like the predictable unpredictability of clay; I enjoy the process of discovering what happens when I make the same thing again and again. While every piece may be similar, they are all very different to me; I can see the progression, the improvements, the subtle evolution of the original idea. When I’ve exhausted the idea I move on.
I am inspired by art, beauty, books, movies, travel, other cultures, funny people, a well-written turn of phrase, and the excitement I feel about the future.
A seasoned artist for more than twenty years, Stewart Heath is a contemporary abstract painter who uses acrylics and mixed mediums. Her work has a richly diversified subject matter, creating unique acrylic pours that seem as though her paintings, such as “Hurricane Waters”, “Dancing Jellyfish”, and “Vibrations”, are glimpses into other dimensions; which are sometimes referred to as “other worldly”. When creating her mixed medium pieces, Stewart draws inspiration from animals, the ocean, wildlife, and children as well as life around her to tell her story. Stewart’s paintings and mixed medium pieces can be found in several private residences throughout the U.S.
Formerly from Atlanta, Stewart loves international travel, and she has spent numerous years living in Europe where she met her husband, who was training for the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Stewart is now living with her loving and supportive husband and son in Spanish Fort, right around the corner from her gallery.
I started drawing and painting in 2010, and while I say that I'm a self taught artist, I was truly taught by prominent artists of today such as Richard Schmid, David Leffel, and Daniel Gherhartz among others through the books they have written and many hours of studying their work. While having experimented with various mediums, I currently work with charcoal on paper and oil on canvas. Although I believe all art is abstract, at least in the making, I give my sincerest attempt at a more traditional look in my work, which consists of mostly portrait and figure paintings alongside the occasional still life. I can only hope that my artwork will bring as much joy to others as it has to me.
Kim Richard began her journey in the art world only a couple of years ago as she began approaching her retirement from the Coronado, California School System. She served as a Special Education Teacher for 13 years. She has a great passion for helping children, so retirement for Kim was bitter sweet.
As her retirement approached, and with the increasing time that her Navy Seal husband was deployed, Kim decided she needed a creative outlet that brought her peace and meditation. While establishing a new-found love for painting, she became very intrigued by the technique of Mandala Pointillism. She incorporated this technique into functional art by adding beautiful designs to terracotta clay pots and the accompanied plant saucers. Kim now creates amazing Mandala Pointillism designs to small wooden boxes, birdhouses, and jewelry dishes adding vibrant color and depth to what were once ordinary objects.
