Kathleen Carr (@carrfineart)
Kathleen is an award winning contemporary representational artist. Her narrative paintings are radiant with feminine beauty; capturing the soulful expressions of her sitters and revealing their inner world. The viewer is also drawn into a narrative through stunning details such as the convincing rendering of birds, flowers, translucent and lace fabrics and damask patterns. The artist seeks to create work with a timeless aesthetic yet thoroughly contemporary.
Nikole Cooney (@nikolecooney)
Nikole Cooney is best known for creating otherworldly images reflecting her connection with nature and appreciation for wildlife through surreal and fantastic imagery. Her work speaks of the resilient and ephemeral qualities of both nature and man in an anthropomorphic way. Many sculptures contain elements of adjacent pieces unifying them to create their own environment.
I’m a self-taught contemporary, realist portrait artist. My mediums of choice are colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal. Even though my drawings feature my friends and family members they ultimately tell the story of me.

Jennifer Balkan (@jenniferbalkan)
for the whole bio, check out my site: www.jenniferbalkan.net :).
My paintings are emotionally-based psychological narratives where the details lie in planes of color. I choose to exaggerate color, in a sense break up a color field into its constituent colors, directing the viewer to particular areas by applying juicy bits of heavily saturated color. I strive to capture emotional states more than anything else, purposefully laying strokes down to create the illusion of an outer physical topography that houses an inner one of the soul. Though it is a cerebral concept that motivates me, the process of painting is superior to all else.
Lauren Bergman (@lauren_bergman)
Lauren Bergman grew up in Washington, D.C., before relocating to Manhattan to study painting and design at Parson’s School of Design and The Art Students League in New York. Bergman's work probes a loss of cultural optimism and the ongoing irresolution of such post-feminist issues as sexuality versus intellectualism, passivity and acquiescence versus ambition. The work courts irony and the inner narratives are playful, yet confront the conflicting expectations of contemporary culture and the intricately complex ways in which we form our identities.
Bergman currently lives in Manhattan and her studio is at MANA Contemporary in Jersey City, NJ.
