Artist Biography

Heather Coen in an award winning artist based in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Her paintings have been recognized and published by every major art magazine in the United States including, Art of the West, Plein Air Magazine, American Art Collector, Colored Pencil Magazine, Southwest Art and others.  She began her career by apprenticing to two major artists and then, over the coming years, took classes and workshops to hone her skills. Recently, although her career was halted by a tragedy, she has risen from the ashes and began painting with a vengeance.

She belongs to such prestigious national organizations like Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West, National Oil and Acrylic Painters as well as a number of local art venues. She currently has work in three different galleries in two different states including Jackson Hole and Cheyenne, Wyoming and Estes Park, Colorado.  

Heather is a landscape, still life and wildlife artist.  Her work comes from her many travels all over South America, Canada and the United States.  They are created over many months by adding many layers of paint or pastel on a canvas or surface.  

Heather believes she is, “Creating a legacy, one original at a time.” 

Artist Statement

Having been born with a paint brush in my hand, my mother survived and passed on many of her artistic skills to me. Apprenticed to three master artists over a six-year period, I launched with advantages. I soon became the President of a local art organization and learned the inner workings of shows, exhibits and keeping a herd of cats going in somewhat the same direction. I was the prize coordinator for the Women Artists of the West 50th Jubilee Show which happened to coincide with the outbreak of COVID. The organization could not hold the National Show and everything had to be coordinated and shipped. It took weeks.

Overcoming adversity is a part of every artist's life. I've found that persistence, ethics and just plain being stubborn helps. I have drawers full with awards and ribbons. I became a Master Signature member of Paint America after winning a number of competitions through their venues. It took me eight years to accumulate enough points.

I also have my Signature designation with Plein Air Artists Colorado and Pastel Society of Colorado. Moving from the mountains of Colorado to the hot, dry desert in Arizona, I found that plein air work helped tremendously in changing my palette and way of thinking. It was not an easy transition.

Artist Biography

Aarti Gupta Bhadauria is an Indian sculptor who creates sculptures in terracotta medium. She has completed bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with specialization in sculptures in the year 2004 from Gwalior, India. She has exhibited her sculptures on various platforms at both National and International levels.

Aarti has received wide appreciation and acceptance from connoisseurs of art across the world and many prizes including 2 "Best in Show" from Contemporary Art Gallery Online, USA. Her sculptures are rhythmic, abstract, and reflective waves of feelings and emotions in various forms. One cannot stop without looking all the angles, each angle depicts a different image. Sculpting and contouring bends and shadows and ever-changing curves and profiles with each slight turn to view.

People divide pottery into two main categories. Utilitarian pottery: designed for use in food or drink. Art pottery: that which can still have use but also becomes decorative for living spaces. And then, works such as Aarti's. Fine Art! This, hers, is no longer pottery. Aarti is an artist of Fine Art, sculpture, in the media of clay/terracotta. One can see the time, the eye, the hand of Aarti in every works of her, without seeing her name.

Artist Statement

"Sculpting the clay is to the sculptor as the paper is to the painter. In the delicate clay, the genius of the sculptor is found in its most extreme virtue and truth."

Sculpting with clay and giving it an abstract effect depicts how we look at something, but it always has an abstract meaning associated with it. When we are emotional, we feel different waves inside us, I show the different forms of these waves through my sculptures. My sculptures are aerial and without any armature. I maintain my own style in terracotta, and it takes me three to four months to make one sculpture. I wanted to do something different in life, so I decided to choose my own destination, and started working with terracotta. Terracotta is one of the ancient mediums for art, I want to promote it world-wide with modern ideas and my style. When I work, I get lost in it and does not feel my physical existence. My work is my soul.

Artist Biography

A long-time arts educator, Vasiliki has dedicated a large part of her professional life mentoring art students. A strong believer that art education is paramount to the development of a well-rounded person, she created her own arts workshop in 1994 which run for more than 20 years in Athens.

Vasiliki’s style has evolved throughout the years from the study of the major artistic movements of the past, covering a wide range of styles and techniques from the renaissance era and the masters of impressionism to cubism, pop-art, but also the byzantine art. Furthermore, at the workshops of Nikos Kessanlis and Rena Papaspyrou, she was exposed to the ideas of New Realism, and experimented with a wide variety of forms, materials and textures in the context of mixed media. Vasiliki describes her artworks currently balancing between impressionism and the abstract.

Since 2016, Vasiliki has returned to painting her own works, focusing on the medium and topic she loves most, acrylic paintings of nature. For this, she moved out of the city and into a small village at the heart of the mountainous Peloponnese region, an area rich in wild life. She has since created multiple paintings under two major series, the "Lousios" series which is inspired by the nearby river of the same name and the wild forest around it, and the "Efkalyptos" series which is inspired by the regeneration process of the Eucalyptus tree.

Artist Statement

My subject matter is nature and my medium is acrylic on canvas. Nature has always evoked deep feelings in me, both in her pure form and in the hidden figures and meanings that emerge from within. Through my paintings I invite the viewer to emerge themselves in the experience of finding their own meanings and shapes.

Artist Biography

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota.  After attending college in Colorado, she stayed and never looked back.  Working and traveling opened her eyes to the wonders of the American west and reawakened childhood tendencies to creatively document her discoveries.  She began making images of the American west in hopes of preserving the history, the culture, and the dreams that shaped the west. Today, Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing the scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way.

Maureen has accomplished many things with her photography including images placed in the Audubon International Top 250, local, national and international juried photography exhibitions, winning placements in monthly club competitions, state park calendars, images selected for use by the City of Littleton, Colorado, and many images selected as editor picks on National Geographic and for publication. Her work has been the subject of several newspapers.

Maureen’s goal is to continually look for new ways to challenge herself and express what she feels. That is what inspires her to never reject possibilities in subject matter.

Artist Statement

My techniques are largely self-taught. I am deeply inspired by Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. My greatest reward comes from developing composites. My work is delivered in an array of styles that arc between passionately abstract and doggedly figurative.
