Join Mastrius Mentors Mark Thompson and Chantel Barber for LIVE Color and Composition Art CRITIQUES

They will answer big questions, like:

  • How important is it to follow the rules of composition and when can I break them?
  • Is the use of color more effective than composition to enhance the story I'm telling through my artwork?
  • How do I guide the viewer into my painting and keep them there?


🚩 Tickets are only $10 | FREE for Mastrius Members!
🎙️  Event recording available for Mastrius Members only

Meet Mark Thompson

Oil | Watercolor | Charcoal

Born in the Fenlands of Eastern England (1972), Mark went on to study painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.

His early memories of the land informed his studies, and he continues to explore the inextricable link between landscape and memory in his current body of work.

After completing his degree in 1997, he won first the Duveen and then the Rootstein Hopkins travel scholarships, which took him to Iceland, Norway and Finland.

Mark’s experiences in these harsh Nordic landscapes inspired his first solo exhibition at the Proud Galleries in London (1999).

Meet Chantel Barber

Acrylic | Graphite

Chantel Lynn Barber yearns to promote the human spirit in her work. She believes that when it comes to the human race, there is more that unites than divides. There is beauty in everyone, regardless of whether they measure up to society’s definition of beauty. Not only their joys, but their sorrows too. She wants to show the beauty in the human condition.

Chantel is on a journey to capture the vision in her mind’s eye – the one blood we as humans share. And she does it all in acrylic – with strong color, energetic brushwork, light and story.

Her loose style draws the viewer’s attention, visually beckoning them to wonder at the essence of life.
