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. She has co-authored 2 books that document the history, beauty and environment of the second largest natural area in the country.  Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

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.

Her paintings are inspired by Morten Solberg and Lucy Newton wildlife artists, and by Antonio Ortega Perez’s abstract watercolor paintings.

Artist Statement

Through my art I create stillness and harmony inspired by the beauty and simplicity of Mother Nature. When I paint landscapes and wildlife, I feel closer to nature. I use the contrast of loose watercolor background and animal portraits to express the harmony of motion and stillness in nature that surround us.

Artist Biography

Alan is inspired by nature’s infinite combinations of form, light, texture, atmosphere and rhythm. He finds richness in the weather and weathered objects, in the land and its layers, in the wind patterns, waves and great rock formations found on Earth. They seem to speak volumes on time, regenerate cyclically, all the while telling a profound story. His environmental pieces are a call to reflect on our vital and delicate relationship to the Earth and hopefully inspire its protection.

Through his painting practice Alan attempts to reveal vitality in his subject matter through dynamic color and movement. He often uses his camera to compose ideas upon which he translates them to canvas in a layered approach. The initial surface is textured and built upon with subsequent paint crusts, like the ancient sediments of the Earth. Here he allows the process to guide unique conversations between the evolving surfaces

Alan has an MFA from the Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and a BA in Geography with a minor in Geology from UC Davis in 1997. His work has been exhibited in galleries in San Miguel de Allende, Queretaro, Toluca, Mexico and, Point Reyes, Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA. His work is held by numerous private collectors in Mexico and the US.

Artist Statement

Bonsai California

These paintings of conifers are intimate portraits of trees from the wilds of California. My painting process starts with my camera, composing the tree amongst its environment, a stoic presence against the infinite sky. Texturizing the canvas mimics the immense layers found in the bark of these ancient trees. The painting is infused with memory of place, expressive brushwork radiating with color and rhythm juxtaposing movement with the seeming stillness of time. My intention is to portray a tree’s unique and persevering character, inspiring awe, and veneration. There is wisdom in the trees.

The resilience of these conifers can give hope to the challenges of our own survival. Especially during these very trying times: of sickness and desperation, of division and upheaval, of dramatic and catastrophic climate change. They have survived many fires and droughts over the millennia, which has helped to forge their character and growth. Fire is a great destroyer, but equally it is an essential element of renewal. May their majestic presence inspire us towards better days ahead, helping us to see the depth of the forest and ultimately becoming stewards for their future preservation.

California’s Native tribes have traditionally maintained the forests through periodic prescribed burns to enhance their productivity and facilitate passage. 5% of sales from these paintings will go to the Karuk Tribe’s Wildland Fire Program (

https://www.karuk.us/index.php/departments/natural-resources/eco-cultural-revitalization/wildland-fire-program) as they look to rebuild and promote eco-stewardship through integration of tribal wisdom practices.

Artist Biography

Heidi Dehncke majored in Illustration and also studied both painting and photography at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She won several art contests as a child and teenager and began doing professional renderings and projects for publication shortly after her time at Pratt.

Eventually, Dehncke transformed her art and worked as a video producer, journalist, photographer and editor. Along with the creativity necessary for editing video she was also able to employ her design and photography talents. She worked as a producer for “InSport”, About.com, PLUM TV, and more. She also produced, directed and was the filmmaker for “Dust to Dust: The Health Effects of 9/11,” which premiered on The Sundance Channel in 2006.

Dehncke’s photography has appeared and placed in several national juried competitions as well as several publications. She describes her photography as energizing and dramatic and focuses on captivating imagery effected by light and shadow. This includes images that she finds particularly inspiring for her to paint and interpret.

Her photography influences her painting. Dehncke has been painting for years and is pursuing painting as her primary creative endeavor. She showed work in Basking Ridge’s “Exhale” (2020) and was invited to Studio Channel Islands Collector’s Choice 2021. She also recently had work included in Biafarin’s Diversia: Earth - 2021 online exhibition as well as The Rhode Island Watercolor Society’s “Spring Forward 2021,”

She finds her biggest inspiration to be rooted in capturing and reinterpreting nature. Dehncke works in Acrylics and Oils.

Artist Statement

While painting most of my life, I had the opportunity to move back to New Jersey in 2019 and pursue my fine art painting, mostly concentrating on nature. My paintings usually begin with nature exploration - hikes in nature that inspire and provide a form of therapy, renewal, and connection. After I photograph my inspiration, I devise painting my interpretation. I usually work in acrylic or oils and the size of the canvas depends on how I envision the finished art. The process is also about how I feel when I am painting. One influences the other and it is truly a symbiotic relationship between myself and the artwork. I paint in a modern impressionist style – which I am compelled to do, given how painting, the act itself, makes me feel.
