Mixed Media Sculpture, Painting, Ceramics
Tanya Kukucka draws on deep worlds of the unconscious and the fantastic. She dwells within a place of fears and dreams, nightmares and touches of reality. Her work reflects upon Death and Rebirth, as she incorporates both feelings of sadness and grace.
Symbolism is important, from butterflies representing the Soul to ancient texts depicting Shamanistic stories.
Her work is cathartic, as she believes that she is purging her soul as she creates, which becomes a cleansing and healing process.

Tilly Strauss Works in Acrylics and in Digital Formats on Her iPad
I think Time is my inspiration. I didn’t grow up in one home. Instead I shifted with the rhythms of seasons and vacations that repeated over Time. My body and my thoughts react to Time. I am a lot in the past and the future. It is hard for me to stay in the present UNLESS I am making art. That is why, since 2006, I have kept a daily drawing or painting practice.
Traci R. Meitzler
Acrylic, Marker, Charcoal, Spray Paint, Modeling Paste
As an artist I work hard to develop art that speaks both to me and to others about my emotions and frame of mind while creating.
I would classify my style as chaotic architecture. I enjoy the juxtaposition of straight edges with organic curves. I believe that a painting or any design cannot have just one element, but that each exists in harmony because of the other.
I work mostly in acrylic mediums along with other materials such as marker, charcoal, spray paint and modeling paste. I like to add non-standard items as well to create texture, such as clear acrylic sheets, textured wall paper, and coarse sand.
Veronica C. Wilkinson
Mixed Media, Paint, Collage, Clay, Textiles, Etching, Woodblock, Experimental Materials, Writing
My floating world was spent aboard various classes and sizes of cargo ships at sea accompanying my husband, a master mariner (Captain) for over twenty years as we traveled around the world. My inspiration is drawn from nature and natural light and I have drawn, painted and written since I can remember to express a need to record in a reassuring practical way.
Graphite, Acrylic, Oil, Collage with Wood Dowels and Canvas
My background is in drawing and painting, but I think sculpturally. The shapes are canvas under wooden dowels, or simply canvas pieces, that mount flat on the wall. The space surrounding the pieces is no less important than the pieces themselves. Brushstrokes, and underlying brushstrokes, reveal themselves. It’s not perfect. The work keeps on growing.
Contemporary and Digital/Media Art
I am a multi-dimensional, contemporary collage artist, storyteller and student of the profound human spirit. No matter the medium my art has always been the manifestation of the collective experience. I share my perspective with the world in the hopes of inspiring a deeper connection that may bridge the spiritual and material worlds. Discover the depths pertaining to the meaning of life on earth, and experience true freedom. I create art to encourage people to live deeply, love endlessly and motivate dynamic thought.
