Lynnette Shelley is an award-winning Pennsylvania artist specializing in contemporary mixed media animal paintings and illustrations. Having a great love of wildlife, folktales, tribal art and world mythology, Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique artworks. Her paintings strike a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her complex compositions and zoomorphic and totemic animal art and folklore-inspired creations are both primitive and sophisticated, and have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

One of Samantha Claar’s joys is hearing the stories that the Gullah folks tell you when you look at their portraits. “These people have stories they want to share, so look for a long, loving relationship with these Gullah folk.”
The simplicity and domesticity portrayed in the art create a sense of beauty that is parallels in many ways to the life of the artist. Ms. Claar resides on Tybee Island and was well known for her TybeeCats art before beginning the Gullah Living series. In her multi-faceted artwork she uses vivid colors and her philosophy is … “life is a canvas we are applying color to.” She paints “everything that will stand still long enough.” This includes canvas, houses, furniture, murals, fences, cars, cartoons and fabric.
Ms. Claar has been painting since the mid 90’s. She is the daughter of an artist, and credits her years of “MotherArt”, with teaching her “enough to be confident in my own style”.

He roamed the art museums, won awards for his paintings, and traveled in classical Europe as a teenager. He came to the United States in 1963 to have the freedom to explore his artistic drive. Here, he studied fine arts and architecture at the University of New Mexico and environmental psychology at the University of Southern California.
Irene Sheri is a wonderful artist…and is taking the time to teach her daughter to paint. Irene was born in the Ukraine in 1968, and her parents could not keep her from painting. By age nine, she had created thousands of paintings, and the rest of her formal schooling was centered around the arts. Over her lifetime, she has won many awards for excellence in the arts – and it’s easy to see why. She continues to pass on her love of the arts to her family and to her students, as she has been teaching since the early 1990’s. Her daughter is fast becoming a great artist, as well.
Irene’s work has been featured in St. Peterburg’s Academy of Art as well as other notable galleries around the world, and her graduation artwork, “Early Snow”, was accepted into the permanent collection of the Museum of Academy of Art in 2000. Less than a year later, the same work of art also received the highest honor an artist can receive in Russia, the “Russian State Award for Outstanding achievement in Art or Entertainment”. Her artwork is sold and presented by galleries and dealers around the world, but she most enjoys the creative process and teaching the artists of tomorrow. Color Me Impressed by an artist who has continued to teach while she continues to learn.
