Address: 128 Ebbets Pass Road, [989], CA 94589

Artist Statement:

I graduated from Arizona State University in 1993, Bachelor of Fine Arts, focus on sculpture. Then, I completed what I consider to be my “second degree,” working for the next 13 years as a Model Fabricator for a variety of applications, including for movies, stop-motion animation and museum exhibitry.

After becoming sensitized to epoxy resin (through repeated use), I ended my model building career in 2006, and moved forward, acquiring computer skills and working in various fields. It was during that time that I visited Ceramics as a way to return to making art…

…then, I got married…had two kids… time passed…

…and then, in 2017, I set up a home studio, and perhaps more importantly, I was able to make time to create sculpture again.

It has been an amazing year! I’m working with clay in a whole new way. The freeing premise is: “Every piece is a test and every test is a success.”  This approach has allowed me to work faster, take more risk, and try new-to-me techniques and materials. I’m excited to continue this journey and share my work along the way.

Artist Statement:

I love creating, whether it’s 2D, 3D or virtual each builds on the other. While I first began to create my own art as a teenager because I didn’t like what was available at the stores and then fell in love with the process of creating and to the endless learning about the world around me and how much art plays apart of our daily life.
Art also plays a large part of my overal health while I am limited physically to what my hands can do I’ve always found a way to adjust and learning new ways to create to paint. My art is also one of the ways I manage pain as it requires focus and deliberate mark making I that has become my own style of painting. The only thing I enjoy more than making art myself is teaching art and design to others.
I love color and playing with marks to create visually stimulating paintings that allows visual play in multiple directions and how light plays with the shine, colors and phosphorus pigments used. More recently I have been incorporating years of work designing graphic user interfaces and how it effects software users globally from the colors to gestalt methodology.

Address: 1125 Capitol St., [989], CA 94590

Artist Statement:

Growing up in many different homes in rural Germany during World War II, Barbara discovered Shamanic relationships with nature, which enabled her to survive and gave her life meaning. She started creating pictures and drawing early in life as a means of expressing her feelings and making sense of her life.

For Barbara, making art nourishes and heals the soul and allows a search for similarities with others. Sometimes it leads to the discovery of the universal truths. Immersing herself deeply in the creative process brings her peace of mind and expresses her part in the song of life. She has worked with oils and watercolors but now mostly uses acrylic on canvas for her paintings, dry pastel for her drawings and mixed media for making masks.

Barbara obtained undergraduate degrees in Nursing, Psychology and Art from Sonoma State University and her MA in Arts and Consciousness from JFK University. She supported herself and her family of two daughters in California with her art and practicing psychiatric nursing.

She also studied SHEN energy healing with Richard Pavek. After studying Shamanism with Michael Harner she continued studying Shamanic practices with other Shamans on our planet and now offers all these modalities for personal healing.

These studies have brought Barbara to many wondrous sacred places. Capturing the healing, nurturing universal light emanating from these places brought her a sense of joy and wellness.

Her art and work is about the deep wish to bring to and generate in mankind a similar sense of joy and wellbeing. Through her Shamanic gatherings, Pagan art of the seasons and the energy of Father Sun and Mother Earth, she brings healing to all.

Artist Statement:

Kendra Stone
Self-taught artist working with acrylics and mixed media

I am passionate about painting although it has only been an active part of my life since 2014.

The onset of a debilitating illness changed my life’s course dramatically; I became housebound most of the time with ME/CFS. The words of Allen Saunders, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans,” rang true. In need of a creative outlet, something I could customize to accommodate the challenges of living with an unpredictable illness with no cure and simultaneously feel outside the daily preoccupations of managing the myriad symptoms, I turned to painting.

It’s an active exploration, a continuous learning process. Most often I am thinking about painting or contemplating the soul healing power of making art. I find myself looking at flowers as shapes and forms, studying the delicate anatomy of a bird’s wing, feeling absolutely delighted playing with color. I am discovering intriguing new ways to look at life opening up on canvas.

Due to physical limitations, I paint either from photographs or my imagination. I am not confined to one subject area and my style and methods continue to evolve the more I learn.

Currently, I am studying acrylic painting and mixed media techniques. I also enjoy art journaling.

I live and make art in Vallejo, California.

Artist Statement:

I grew up in Richmond ca. I was surrounded by guns, drugs and violence. Art wasn’t even an elective at my high school. Never imagining that i possessed a talent, that realization that i did was life changing.
At the age of 16, I made a discovery. I discovered that i could draw. The circustances that I found myself in, at that time, were not ideal. Perhaps those same circumstances where needed for me to make this very discovery. I was able to draw what I saw. Not from memory, but from looking at he details. Not knowing any of the scholastic ways of drawing, I learned through trial and error. Not to mention Id meet other artist, over the years, who Id gain ideas from, which id adapt in my own way.
After numerous request from family friend and strangers, to purchase the work that hung in my mothers home. My mom suggested I try to sell prints of my work. Hesitant at first, I took the change and begun this journey.
My troubled past aside, ive been able to persevere to this point. This year is my first full year of offering my work to the public. Through trial, error and the obstacles of life, I present to you, my artistic vision.

My work is hand drawn in griphite pencil and or color pencil. My collection doesnt have a title. The pieces are on stretched canvas all approximately 16″×20″. Prices Range from $70-$175.

There are 15 total but we can do less is space is limited. A little more background; alomst everyone in the photos live in solano county/ bay area. I do high end fashion/ glamour photography and the following set is a result of the silly in-between monents during a typical photoshoot.
I didnt really have any plans on selling the pieces but any advice would be helpful.
