She is a contemporary realist painter and in her works she try to capture special moments or feelings that deserve to be remembered. Here the balance of lights and darkness is managed in a very personal way to achieve a deeper kind of art.

Fine artist, teacher.
Painter based in Detroit, Michigan.
My body of work is a visual journal, some accounts are pivotal others are simple. I work to present this personal subject matter with economy of action and integrity of personal expression. I enjoy searching for the moment in a painting when the least amount of detail meets the truth of my subject. It’s this truth and simplicity that allow the viewer to connect, ultimately relating my work with their own experiences.

Manu Saluja (@manusaluja)
My current work depicts moments and tattered landmarks from my commutes on subways in New York City using oil on canvas. By depicting elements that have weathered and decayed, at times with the figures that live amongst them, I strive to express the vulnerability and resilience that coexist in people and objects.

Alexander Hayden (@alexanderhayden)
Alexander Hayden's work grows from a fascination with questioning human perception and how emotion can influence experience and behavior. Born in Texas in 1993, Hayden moved to New York City (where he now resides) in 2017 to pursue involvement in the thriving environment of figurative art. Hayden is self taught, preferring to approach education independently through books & the internet. His works in charcoal and oil use the figure to analyze the difficulties of managing human experience and the ambiguous and often contradictory thoughts & emotions that come with it. Alexander draws deeply on and directly from the events of his personal life as inspiration f
Shannon Fannin (@shanfannin)
I paint vehicles realistically. Many think of our cars and bikes as appliances, but I consider them mobile sculptures that reflect our personality. My paintings capture some of that personality with the vehicles from our past, or those we dream of one day driving.
Donovan Christie (@donovanchristie)
Christie’s work can be seen as very witty and nostalgic. Seemingly simple at first, the more you look; the more there is to see. Thoughtfully immortalising a period of time, he documents the scenes of Australia in this day and age as we are on the verge of a dying era.

Jodi Gerbi (@jodi1234)
I paint resilience but not always through the depiction of the figure. My oil paintings are realistic portrayals of the garbage, trash cans and drain pipes as a way to convey the idea that humans are often required to find something beautiful in a hard situation in order to keep going. The ability of a human being to do this is the essence of resilience.
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.
