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 artist seeks to create work with a timeless aesthetic yet thoroughly contemporary.

Astrid Ritmeester is a Dutch realist portrait artist.
My name is Elizabeth Selby and I am from southern Alabama and currently work and reside in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I have been painting most of my life and am primarily self-taught. In the recent past I have begun painting with oil colors, after taking classes taught by painter Brett Andrus. My paintings are typically large scale works of portraiture inspired by dreams, idealism, and the playfulness of girlhood. Painting partly for aesthetic reasons, partly for emotional ties to the past; remembering a moment either had or dreamt of, or maybe read in a book. Utilizing elements from my childhood that don’t ask questions, rather just bring feelings, my wor

Gemma Di Grazia (@gemmadigrazia)
My representational paintings are a celebration of color, light and form. The compositions exhibit formal aesthetic elements, and using soft pastels, I use a luminous and vibrant color palette that transform the formal foundation into an exciting and dynamic rendering. The work seeks to evoke the life-affirming beauty inherent in the natural world, and reveal what is extraordinary in the familiar. Ultimately, it’s not the subject matter that interests me, it's the tone, the gesture, color, light, scale and composition, that continue to absorb and inspire.
Jim Thalassoudis (@jimthalassoudis)
Artist based in Australia,
In order to understand a thing’s relevance, we need its adverse or adjacent-other to compare it to. My paintings reside in this flux - romanticism overlapping progress - in order to understand how the photo functions as cultural memory.
In my paintings, I reappropriate traditional techniques by deconstructing current understanding and meaning to better gain new and different usages.
Echoing the printer, I use only four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. The work develops in the same manner as a print, left to right. The finished product hangs like a movie screen, slightly swaying when a person walks by, disrupting its ether.

Amanda Greive (@agreive)
Amanda’s hyper-realistic compositions reference both classical and contemporary symbolism and iconography. While the primary motivation behind her work is to tease out the nuanced emotions embedded within the human condition and to confront isolation and anxiety born of gender-based stereotypes, she also looks to comment on the contradiction between creating realistic imagery and portraying emotional rawness, as well as the uncompromised truth in the imagery portrayed versus it’s symbolic ambiguity. Amanda’s most recent work includes paintings of women in a variety of positions with flowers coming out of their backs, balancing on their foreheads, or covering
