Julie Arroyo

"My love of art began in Philadelphia when my folks enrolled me in a summer class at the age of 6. We werebeing taught about oil pastels that year. I remember feeling very inadequate (big word for a 6 year old, huh?) since I was so young and inexperienced, but I absolutely loved playing with the pastels. I went into my own world, ignoring what the teacher was showing us, and just made picture after picture until my parents picked me up at the end of class.."

Ashley Gallagher

A child of rock n' roll and pop culture, Ashley Gallagher places her focus on the quirky images created in her mind and the real life situations in the world around her. With her friends as models, she uses photography to capture the perfect scene to use as a reference. This process is integral as this collaboration provides her with moments to draw more inspiration and to gain a special insight into her overall focus of the piece.

Pop culture, music, friends and even strangers on the street serve as a main influence for her to create images that evoke humor and nostalgia. Using fantastic and vibrant oil paint reminiscent of her native San Diego, she creates a bold and electric tableau. Ashley received a Bachelor's degree in Studio Arts with an emphasis on painting and printmaking in 2007 from San Diego State University. Her work has been displayed in galleries in San Diego and Los Angeles and New York.

Brady Willmott

Creating imagery that inspires the imagination, coupled with classic painting techniques, Brady Willmott's unique twist on pop surrealism leaves a lasting impression.

Willmott paints in oils and is based in Carlsbad, California. Born and raised in Vermont and having lived several years in the mountains of Colorado before relocating to Southern California in 2003, his connection to the ocean and nostalgia for the mountains are evident in his work. A strong imagination, dry sense of humor and successful career as a tattoo artist also play a role.

A strong focus in art helped Willmott complete high school and led him to earn his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1998.

Astha Saini

Astha is a local San Diego based artist, born and raised in India. She has seen diversity and elegance in abundance, and her art revolves around the paradox that life creates and juxtaposes on each of us. She thinks it is significant and overwhelming to realize our dreams changing and growing while we bask in the present. We all in some way, silently keep living with the parallel culture and sub culture that ignites our mind and our soul.

Parallel lines, ignite her!

Professionally trained as a Lighting designer, she best engages with herself through lines in motion. Her art begins with words, and ends in lines. Her line work is narrative and thoughtful. It tells a story. It is an extension of herself into another realm, where she is more aware of herself and others.

Gus Lezama

I've always had a passion for art. Through the years i've tried different mediums. In my early twenties i began working with wood, creating furniture and designing kitchens. During my years of woodworking i developed a style using an acrylic medium with layering colors through stencils. I enjoy using nature in my designs, animals and bonsai are a few of the subjects that i love incorporating in my work.

Michael W. Conely

I'm a Christian artist with a contradictive dark style and street art roots who has worked with acrylic, models, one-shot, automotive and house paint, oil pastels, Prismas, plastercast, computer parts, recycled material, clay, leather, vinyl, wire, cloth, oil, spray paint, clothing, hats, paint markers, sharpies, paper-mache, masks, bracelets, stencils, pen, and black-book drawings. Using almost anything for a canvas inspired by everything I see.

When it comes to art I find myself emulating other artists works, applying my own style and also doing complete originals.

Jennifer Anichowski

My paintings would best be described as dreamscapes, images from reality in an un-real situation or environment. Like a stand mirror that is growing roots into dry desert ground or a widow to daylight in a night sky. My paintings are unique, though my style is influenced by artists like Salvador Dali and Michael Parks. I choose to use mostly oil paints because of their ability to have a depth and saturation of color that I feel captures my subjects the best. I love having the ability to work with colors that I can continually manipulate until I feel they are right. My artworks express...

Aja Kusick

Aja Kusick is a fine artist residing in Scotia, NY. She attended Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, MA with a concentration in painting from 2001-2003.

Aja's work focuses primarily on the female figure and how she reacts with her surroundings. The current body of work utilizes mixed media such as acrylic, ink, enamel, spray paint, and even glitter encased in resin on cradled wooden panels. Several layers of materials are built up over the course of the creation of the painting, melding background, foreground, and figure together in a visceral swirl of color. Texture has always been a prominent quality in her work, and this new body of work continues to explore the push and pull between subject and medium. Emphasis on movement is heightened by the application of paint directly to wet resin, wherein the materials themselves become collaborators in each finished piece.

Juka Pearl

"Sometimes I feel that I could open my arms up and fall into the sky." (Neil Gaiman, American Gods) Juka creates surreal scenes where girls and creatures interact against the backdrop of a vibrant sky. She has always found comfort in the vastness of clouds and the cosmos. She finds herself transfixed by their chaotic yet serene beauty daily. For her the sky invokes an intriguing duality between its constancy, in the movements of planets and stars, and its impermanence, where the same sunset is never observed twice. Stories set on this transient landscape are an outlet to explore facets of the human condition. This includes our emotions, constructs, our ability and desire to connect to each other, with ourselves, to nature, and to the universe. Every day's sky along with her experiences and dreams are the primary inspiration. Further influences include mythology, fantasy, poetry, music, fiction, pop culture, and science. She hopes that her paintings can stir your mind and heart. Juka Pearl is a play on the artists' name, Julie (Ju) Kate (ka) Imperl (Pearl). Pearl is also an allusion to the creation of art from a visceral origin. Juka is self-taught, and has cultivated her techniques, motifs, and expression through studies of the masters, and well over ten thousand hours (they felt like ten thousand hands) scribbling in her sketchbooks and painting at her easel. She couldn't stop creating art if she tried. Currently she lives in Vista, California with her husband and two cats.

Amanda Beckman

I'm a self-taught artist. I draw, paint, learn, mess up, learn some more, and so the cycle continues.

As a visual artist, I don't consider writing to be a great strength of mine, so trying to articulate an artist's statement describing the meaning of my work and why I do what I do is no easy task. To put it simply, I paint because I need to. I find art to be compelling and consuming, and I couldn't give it up even if I wanted to. It keeps me balanced - well sort of.

Many of the paintings are a vibrant and big-eyed collaboration of people, nature and animals in a way that is meant to express the beauty in all living things.

The ideas behind my paintings come from nature, dreams, my daughter's wild imagination, and every day life. They bounce around in the background of my mind, constantly changing and evolving until I find the time to sit down and let them spill out onto paper and canvas.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Kevin Daly MD

So why are you trying to become an artist now? That?'s a good question that, at first, I wasn't too sure of myself. I went to the countries best medical school and have had a successful career in medicine for the last twenty years, so why art now? I've thought about this a lot and answering this question led me to look back as far as my childhood to know how to answer it. If you're reading this I am sorry it is so long but I think it will explain better what my art is all about.

Sometimes the things we choose to do for the next 10-20 years can be based on a few distinct moments in our lives. I was a very introverted and socially awkward child. In retrospect I would probably have met criteria for high functioning autism (Aspergers). Childhood was a lonely time for me and acceptance from my peers provided a strong positive feedback but was also very elusive. There were many talents I found in myself growing up. I loved science and math and spent a lot of my free time learning more. I also enjoyed drawing and painting and was pretty good at it. When it came to art there were some things I still remember that led me away from art. I still remember my first grade teacher berating me for my poor coloring, crossing the lines too often. In fourth grade I was humiliated by my fourth grade teacher for my lousy penmanship. Lastly, in high school I never really fitted in with the "art kids" and even though I tried hard, I got a B in art class. I know a B isn't bad, but to me that told me I didn't possess anything special when it came to art. What I did find in high school is that I was a whiz as a computer programmer. It came easy to me and satisfied some of my creative desire the same way art did. It provided a social outlet as well since many sought my help with their work and were impressed by what I could do. That positive feedback led me to choose Computer Science as my college major and eventual career.

I did well in my studies in college and worked as a software engineer for five years after college. College and work helped me get outside my wall. While I was still introverted I gained a lot of social skills during that time. I had friends, eventually married, and was a very integral part of my development team at my job. I gained a lot of confidence during this time. One day, at lunch, I was sitting with a friend talking about our jobs and what else we would want to do if we could. At that one moment, for the first time, I reconsidered where I was and where I wanted to go. I opened myself up to any possibility and considered what I loved about my work and what was lacking. From that conversation, I choose to drop everything and pursue a career in medicine. I continued to work and take pre-med classes for two years and was eventually accepted to Yale Medical School.

I eventually graduated and choose a career in emergency medicine. I've been practicing for twenty years now in California where I grew up. Throughout this time I would still draw and paint on occasion for myself or to make a gift for a family member. Emergency medicine, while very satisfying, is a very chaotic and fast paced specialty. After twenty years I began to think of a life after emergency medicine. What do I want to do when I eventually take down the shingle? For reasons still unknown to me I found that I began painting more and more over the past few years. Maybe something subconscious in me saying, "This is what you should be doing after medicine". It was the one thing I loved doing as a child that I really never pursued. Over the last year I found a satisfaction in creating art that has led me to choose this as my next and probably final pursuit.

What I found so satisfying about art is the emotional journey I take when I make a piece of art. While at first I began painting things that I found beautiful in nature, predominantly landscapes, I also found that painting could actually change myself. I find a peace in painting and insight into the world and myself in the process of creating art. My art has evolved from landscapes to art that says something about the world or life as I see it. Before each piece, I will wait for inspiration. Sometimes it's a patient I see in the ER, sometimes it occurs when meditating, or while driving through the desert as the sun is rising. In those pieces I try to take my feelings and put them on canvas. Some of my art is spiritual and some of it is commentary on the world or injustice. I was never formally trained as an artist and do not have an in-depth knowledge of the masters. I kind of want to keep it that way, if that makes sense? I want my art to be a part of me and not necessarily reflect the influence of others. I will educate myself to the extent that I need to create what I envision but I want to limit my outside influences to keep my art as organic as possible. Hopefully that doesn't come off as arrogance. I am actually humbled by the masters so this is why I don't want to do anything that would seem to be me trying to paint like them.

Not all my art is a commentary on the world or human existence. I will still paint the occasional landscape or something whimsical. I will experiment with different techniques or perspectives too. I recently watched a documentary on Neil Young and thought to myself that I want to create art like he creates music. Not restrict myself to any particular genre. Not let what I created before dictate what I will create next. It's maybe not the best formula for commercial success, but it's how I want to do things. I hope my art will touch people, make them feel something, or think about things they haven't given much thought to.

I think this is it? There haven't been any stones I've left unturned. As I wind down my career in medicine over the next decade, I will spend the remainder of my days creating art and enjoying my life with my family. I would like to think that those who buy my art or simply enjoy looking at my paintings are taking this journey with me.
