Meet Valerie Allen

Acrylic | Watercolor | Mixed Media | Encaustic

As an abstract painter intuitive process begins a journey for me that culminates in passages of intentional design for each work of art. Using principles of improvisation, I work from prompts that present themselves through journaling, traveling, even daydreaming. The known improv prompt “yes and……” shows up in each of my paintings as multiple layers. My theme touchstones include music as shown in my Composer’s Campaign series, architecture in Athena’s Timeline collection, and personal history in the One Hundred Years paintings.

The mantra for my creative path is to repeat these three words – process, produce and present. Those words encourage my growth as an artist through the experimentation of materials and techniques that reveal new processes and through the production of art to become more prolific. When those two steps are complete, I move into the presentation of my work to others through conversations and exhibitions.

I share that same three step mantra with others through teaching. I am energized by the dialogue shared in a class and am amazed at the many interpretations for that trio of words. My goal is to help artists find their personal artistic language, improve their techniques, and increase their confidence. I am rewarded many times over by watching artists blossom and grow. It is a rich sharing experience for all involved.

Meet Armin Mersmann

Oil | Graphite | Mixed Media | Digital

My goal as a realist is to understand complexities and details; my interest is how the human eyes perceive, not how a camera sees. My drawing technique allows me to define and celebrate the tiniest nuances, complex markings, patterns, and textures.

I do not copy but reinvent and slowly build an innovative image. I aim to inspire viewers to look closer at the world around them and start their own creative journey.

“A good “rendering” represents what a person sees, but “a work of art” illuminates what others do not.”
