Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Jennifer Healy














"I was born in the United States in 1985. As early as I can remember I've been a "doodler".  From even the early days I've always loved strange, offbeat, beautiful, and slightly melancholy things. Something about the mixed grabbed me. My love for sketching carrried on throughout my high school days. Which is when I took a small class on watercolor. Watercolor is what birthed my passion for mixing colors and how a color can tell a story. In year 2009 I discovered digital painting and my newfound passion for the medium. It's been the favored medium for the past years since. I've used online tutorials and videos to help me learn along the way and then in late 2011 I took a workshop called Becoming a Better Artist." 



















Jan Fabre







Jan Fabre (born 1958, Antwerp, Belgium) is a Belgian multidisciplinary artist, playwright, stage director, choreographer and designer.

He studied at the Municipal Institute of Decorative Arts and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Between 1976 and 1980 he wrote his first scripts for the theatre and made his debut performances.

Fabre is famous for his Bic-art (ballpoint drawings). In 1990, he covered an entire building with ballpoint drawings. He explores the relationships between drawing and sculpture. He also makes sculptures in bronze (among them The man who measures the clouds and Searching for Utopia) and with beetles.

His decoration of the ceiling of the Royal Palace in Brussels Heaven of Delight is widely praised. In 2004 he erected Totem, a giant bug stuck on a 7 foot steel needle, on the Ladeuzeplein in Leuven.

Laura Buss






Laura Buss began studying art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, with a focus in photography. But she soon succumbed to the lure of the wider world, dropped out and traveled, and worked as a painter of signs and portraits. Her craft took her into varied directions, including an ongoing career in tattooing, to return to a heavy focus on oil painting and figurative work. She is based in San Francisco.

Laura is currently working on the "Bundles" project--images of mummy bundle burials that are inspired by archaeology--and also does portraiture when commissioned.
