|Born in Santa Clara, Cuba in 1964, I immigrated to the United States of America at the age of 4. I am happy and grateful to say that my life has taken shape in the United States. I have been drawing since the age of 5 and took up watercolors as a young adult. I began by painting nature and my surroundings and anything I found that was visually interesting to me. I studied and took up painting at Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of Art. in the mid 1980s. My work had been exhibited at The Philadelphia Sketch Club, “Works on Paper,” and “Art of the Flower.” I have also exhibited at The Lambertvillle Historical Society Annual Juried Exhibit. For me creating art is a healthy form of expression and a good celebration of life.

|Dot Bunn is a full time studio painter and teacher with a strong commitment to traditional methods of oil painting. Dot has developed her own approach to design and color which has won her many awards at regional and national exhibitions including: ARC International Salon Exhibition: American Artists Professional League; Allied Artist of America; Butler Institute of American Art and The Berks Art Alliance. Twice she has received the top award for painting at Phillips’ Mill (2004, 2007).

A good work of art needs to have a foundation of solid drawing and design and then a good command of value. Color is the final frontier and should be considered only after the other skills have been applied. The mastery of oil painting is a challenge that takes time and practice in order to develop the ability to express ones self through painting.www.dotbunn.com

|Jeff began painting thirty years ago and joined the local arts community after moving to Pennsylvania in 2003. Working from the beauty of this region, he enjoys painting vibrant local landscapes in oil. Many of his paintings are inspired by Second Generation New York School painters, primarily the work of Wolf Kahn, whose vivid depictions of ordinary country scenes bring new life to roadside barns and farmland. Through impressionism, Jeff reinterprets the landscape, using vibrant color, contrast and intensity of values to capture the essence of a memory and convey a sense of place and mood. Jeff is inspired by the rolling hills and lush countryside of Pennsylvania and Tennessee, as well as the intense light of the Santa Ynez Valley of California and New Mexico.jeffburkett.weebly.com

|Visual patterns have been part of my creative process since early childhood when I struggled as a lefty kid to learn the Palmer method of handwriting. As an adult, I have relied on patterns to bring balance and meaning to my often-hectic life, and tried to learn from those that occur in my habits and relationships.Much of my artwork is based on the meaningful patterns that emerge from ancient and universal systems of divination such as the I Ching, Runes and astrological charts. Like every other system in the universe, underlying the apparently random, chaotic events of life, are order, structure and meaning. One “casts” an I Ching “hexagram” or reads a Rune just as one throws the dice. But while the symbol on the dice tells us whether we have “won,” or “lost,” the symbols found in these ancient yet universal constructs tell us “why”. Mandalas and astrological charts provide a road map or snapshot of the universe so that one can navigate the sometimes treacherous waters of the unconscious.website: www.mariecorfield.com|

|The photography of Therese Halscheid chronicles her itinerant lifestyle. For twenty years, house-sitting has allowed her to live simply on the road, as to write and photograph in unusual and rustic settings. Author of five poetry collections, her latest Frozen Latitudes, won the Eric Hoffer Book Award, Honorable Mention for Poetry. Essays and verse have been published in literary journals, such as The Gettysburg Review, Tampa Review, Sou’wester. Her photography uses a purest approach to represent Nature’s ability to form artistic compositions. Many photographs in her River Towns series document weather and its effect on the Wickecheoke Creek and surrounding woods where she cares for an early 1800s cottage in NJ. The play of sun and shadow, snow, and early morning fog captures the mystical elements of such a place. Her series has expanded to include other natural settings in river towns hugging both sides of the Delaware. She won First Prize for Photography in Artsbridge’s 18th Annual Members’ Juried Exhibition.firstname.lastname@example.org

“Homage to Art”
|Joyce Inderbitzin has been creating her art for over thirty years progressing through successive stages of development in the clay medium. Joyce feels that clay is an essential element of nature. Therefore, her work should be influenced by and reflect natural forms. Her work in stoneware, raku, and sculpture through the years has shown a one on one relationship with the clay.
For me, to paint is to pay attention to what I see, not to theories or ideologies or even prior experience. For me, to pay attention is to become aware, so that awareness can lead to understanding and understanding to insight and insight to truth and truth, hopefully, to beauty. Nature is my only master. A teacher I loved once told me, “Look twice, paint once.” I double that. For me to paint, except when I rage or despair, is to meditate, to allow the energy and movement of light and shade to occupy my entire attention. But nature has no patience for me. Light moves on inexorably, its movement my joy or pain, and always, all the inspiration I ever need.

|I’m drawn to paint images that express the natural world, stimulate the senses and—in our fast-paced world—reveal moments that invite us to pause and consider how extraordinary the ordinary can be. Inspiration comes from faraway travels, my sunny kitchen or Sunday rides with my husband through Hunterdon County, NJ, in our 1960 Nash Metropolitan or 1959 Morris Minor Traveler (restoring classic cars is my husband’s hobby and another of my passions). I work primarily in studio from digital photograph, so am often found with camera in hand, ready to capture the cool gray of a winter day, sun-warmed adobe against azure skies, soft red cardinal feathers, prickly yellow-green flower stems or the butter-colored stones of a Tuscan village. I want my paintings to convey all the beauty, all the humor and all the mystery of the moment.www.ritakoch.com|

His recent works concentrate on the landscapes in and around his home in Locktown, Hunterdon County.In describing his style, he says, “I realized about 2 years ago that my heart is really at home in an artistic style that flourished in and around this part of New Jersey about 100 years ago: tonalism. Tonalist paintings attempt to capture the mood of scene without a great reliance on specific detail. There’s a spiritual sense to the work of painters like George Inness (Montclair, NJ) and Charles Warren Eaton (Bloomfield, NJ) that really appeals to me.”desmondmcrory.com|

|I am a painter of places and people, real and imaginary, impressionist and abstract. I work in oils, watercolor, acrylic and mixed media to capture the essence of my subject. I am most known for my intuitive use of color and imaginative approach to my paintings. .My work has been shown in many galleries and juried exhibits including the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society’s International Juried Show, and the Phillips Mill Juried Art Exhibition where I won the Best Impressionist Landscape Award.My current work explores the abstract, focusing on the interplay of color, shape and design. The creating of patterns and balance arises from intuitive and emotive sources of inspiration.Website: pamelaparsons.com.Etsy store: Etsy.com/shop/parsonspaintings|

|I have always been taken by the beauty that surrounds Bucks County and the neighboring New Jersey area. Growing up in Bucks County and now living in New Hope has fostered my desire to capture the beauty here. As a landscape and cityscape painter, I look for local scenes in the New Hope and Lambertville area to paint and enjoy. My painting style is loose and bright and it is hard living in our area not to be influneced by the work of the early New Hope impressionists. I have been lucky to learn from many local talented artists and I’m always working on learning and expressing more.royreinardart.com|

|Excerpt from Houston Texas Natural Awakenings Magazine, September, 2011″Bucks County, Pennsylvania, artist Ilene Rubin won her first drawing award at the age of 9 and has been involved in art ever since, painting murals, boots, purses, a line of women’s and children’s clothing, furniture, walls and even a radiator, using motifs that range from folk art designs to landscapes. She is still painting “stuff,” but now devotes most of her brushwork to landscapes.Working in acrylics, watercolors, pastels and oils, Rubin’s bold and unabashed explosions of color make her canvases sing. Her pastel, Eka Pada Rajakapotasana II [One Legged King Pigeon], is based upon an image by photographer David Martinez that graced the September 2007 cover of Yoga Journal magazine.Rubin, also a published author, plumbs the frailties and depths of the human heart and mind, but most of all, seeks to offer serenity and light. “Through my art, I explore shades and colors of beauty—the tones and silences between what is seen and what is felt,” she advises. “For me, I have succeeded if I have given someone… a reason to rest their heart and smile—even for one single glance—at a beautiful sight. That is my greatest aspiration and desire.”View the artist’s portfolio at www.IleneRubin.com|
|“I am a oil painter who finds complete joy when painting outdoors. The natural beauty that I see every day in my western New Jersey home is what inspires me. I strive to interpret the atmosphere, light, and color of nature the way I see and feel it, and to hopefully relay this beauty to others.
In my other life, I work as a Graphic and Digital Designer.”www.LolaDesign.net/personal
|The rich artistic culture that is prevalent in Bucks County, PA and in nearby Delaware River towns in New Jersey, has inspired me to paint the beauty that surrounds me. I have always been in awe of artistic ability, but only began studying as an artist in 2000. I paint with a group called, “The Painters’ Collective”, artists who are friends and supportive colleagues. I have painted while traveling to Florence, Italy, Monhegan Island, Maine, the Poconos and as far away as Dakar, Senegal. I create landscape and still life paintings.www.cindyroccaruenes.com|

|In 2010, I became intrigued with shaping images, not with words (I am the author of four books of poetry), but with paper, fabric, paint, and found objects. Since I write extensively about people and place, it seemed a natural extension to turn to these subjects in my art.www.nancyscott.net

|During my career as a photo journalist my tools included without fail my camera as well as my notebook. So, when I travelled around the world, it opened itself to me in my pictures taken from Europe to Asia, places like Cambodia, Bhutan, and Nepal. Through my photography, people got close to me, from Tibetan monks to children in small villages, to urbanites in large cities. I learned about their various cultures, their emotions and personalities, and it allowed me to picture not only the gorgeous landscapes they inhabited but also the often ancient architecture, characteristic of each place. This exploration gave me endless joy and became the start of building career in photography!Inspired by my colorful experiences, I then worked as a food stylist and always as a photographer, but now my heart lies in the work of photographing still life. I will spend days on still life compositions using only the natural light seeping through the window in my home studio, just like the old world masters did. My photographs are not altered by any postproduction processes, hence the images are as the eye sees them. You could experience each scene almost as if it were taken from a moment in your own life.So, my photography is unique! My pieces always tell a meaningful story for young and old. Not only beautiful foods or props from all ages are used but they also contain objects from nature: leaves and tweets from the trees, river stones and dried berries from the forest. Each photo has its own setting i.e. a farmhouse in late autumn, or an elegant chateau in early spring.Portfolio: http://www.yelena.strokin.info

Helena van Emmerik-Finn | Pastel Artist
|Helena’s family emigrated from Holland a few weeks before she was born and settled in upper Bucks County. She attended the Philadelphia College of Art where she studied graphic design, photography and film-making. After college, Helena traveled extensively, including back-backing and youth-hostelling through Europe, North Africa and India.

|For an artist, life is a visual adventure. Shapes, colors, textures and impressions become a way of life. Experience is translated into a symphony of the mind, the hands and the eyes. Printmaking, to me, is the ultimate adventure. It becomes the genie of my creative endeavors. There is the glory of the ink, combined with the brushstrokes, the paper and the press. Together, they form a kind of magic that I set in motion.barbarazietchickprintmaker.com|
