I’ve been an artist since the age of ten but I didn’t discover myself until recently. Although I’ve had art courses and training in Commercial Art, Technical Illustration and The Dayton Art Institute I had a family to look after so at the age of 27 I walked away from art to put food on the table. Five years ago a good friend convinced me to step back up to it for his cigar box guitar business, I was unsure of doing so I hadn’t done any art in so long. But it came back so quickly and I realized what was missing from my life, art makes me happy and complete. Then I slowly discovered my own technique of pencil and white acrylic and how I could come back to realism in that fashion. To be able to bring the eyes of my subjects to life brought back a thrill to my art that I hadn’t known before. Now I wish to share it with the world.Read More Featured Artist – John Creekmore

My creativity often leads me to the edge of the figurative and non-figurative abstract worlds, luring me back and forth across this delicate divide on my artistic journey.
Abstract is the art form which speaks to me the loudest; while it requires an undeniable form of self-discipline to control flow, rhythm and energy, it abides to no rules and it stands alone as an art form which allows anything to come to life. Abstract art leads the viewers and painters alike on a thrilling path of discovery where the rational mind no longer dictates how things are or should be and where everything is palpable and resonates if only we allow ourselves the freedom to stop thinking.Read More Featured Artist – Helen Canetta

Sheryl Luxenburg is a Canadian hyperrealist painter based in Ottawa who uses watercolour on paper and acrylic on linen with airbrush and regular brush to capture ultra realistic subject matter. The flattened depiction of space revealed in her paintings is so hard to distinguish from reality, especially when viewed online, that many scroll over her hand painted work thinking they are photographs. Although Luxenburg’s technical skills are impeccable, it is most important to her that the viewer identifies with her subject matter and finds the soul in her artwork.Read More Featured Artist – Sheryl Luxenburg
