Artist Biography

Lorna Beecroft has had a life-long joy of creating using fabric, wood, and fiber. Her journey into painting and drawing began in 2016 when she finally had time to immerse herself in these art forms. She has followed her own educational path, gaining experience by attending workshops with world-class artists and through self-directed courses. This combined with hours and hours of practice has taken her to where she is today, with so much more to try out and perfect.

Her favorite mediums are acrylics, oils, graphite, charcoal, conte, pencil crayons, and pastels. Each one has such unique properties and produces wonderfully different outcomes.

Lorna has been an animal lover for as long as she can remember, finding great joy in the company of all animals. So naturally, her favorite subjects are the animals she has spent so many hours with, in particular horses, cats, and dogs. For Lorna, the joy of creating is watching the subject(s) slowly appear out of the canvas or paper as if they have a will and life of their own. She believes the eyes are the mirror into their souls and is only satisfied when the viewer is able to dive into the piece and connect with the true spirit of each animal.

Artist Statement

I love to create & love animals even more. My goal is to have the viewer see animals the way I do, admiring and loving them for their spirit and beauty. I spend many, many hours working on each piece with that hope always foremost.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Zsófia Vincze has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Zsófia is an award-winning, based in Hungary. Zsófia was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 21st Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Zsófia’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Zsófia’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Zsófia Vincze had studies in fine arts, architecture and interior design. She was always passionate about painting and tried various techniques. Her watercolor journey started in 2019, when inspired by Jon J. Muth's Zen Tales series she attended a watercolor course at the watercolor Academy organized by IWS Hungary.

She loves the transparency created by the different layers of watercolor washes. She found something special in that painting technique. It challenges her to learn the wide variety of brush strokes and texturing that this amazing technique provides.

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.

Below are Maureen’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 of her digital paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Maureen’s information and to take a look at her art.

Artist Biography:

Maureen Ravnik was born and raised in Minnesota. A brief visit to Colorado sold her on attending college there to pursue a career in sales & marketing. She stayed and never looked back. Working and traveling a lot in that discipline 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. 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, 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. She was listed by LightSpaceTime.art as one of the top ten photographers to watch for in 2018. She was also selected for a month-long solo exhibition by LightSpaceTime.art for April, 2019. At the end of 2019, Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery announced their “Year in Review” recap. This annual feature reviews and promotes the gallery’s 12 top winning artists for the 12 individual monthly art exhibitions.

In 2019, the gallery received more than 9,703+ entries for their art competitions and Maureen’s art was selected for what the gallery considered to be one of the best 13 entries from their themed exhibitions. Maureen was selected again for a 2-week, solo showcase by LightSpaceTime.art for March, 2020 and January, 2021. Maureen has also served as a juror for the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts in Colorado.

Artist Statement:

Maureen is an emerging talent whose methods and techniques are largely self-taught. Part of Maureen’s time is spent outdoors taking in and capturing scenery, wildlife, and exploring other methods for interpreting and sharing what she sees and experiences along the way. She is deeply inspired by the work of Ansel Adams and Art Wolfe. Part of Maureen’s work is also derived from her imagination. Her greatest satisfaction comes from taking the file from the camera and into the computer to develop composites. The results reflect her personal feelings and beliefs, events, culture, etc. that are best expressed through artistic interpretations.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Nathan Cole has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and he will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Nathan is an award-winning artist based in the city of Toronto in Ontario, Canada. Nathan was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 19th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

Nathan’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting his artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Nathan’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Nathan Cole is an artist, photographer, and writer working out of Toronto, Canada. A graduate of the Honours BFA program from Western University in London, Ontario in 2003, Nathan is now emerging as a professional artist after rediscovering the scratchboard medium in 2013. He is best known for his intricate and emotional portraits of highly expressive animals on scratchboard. He carefully uses negative space and the starkness of black-and-white to create engaging chiaroscuro compositions, sometimes playful, sometimes profound. The intensity and diversity of the lines created with the quill depict colour, texture, and depth all at once. The painstaking, slow, and unforgiving nature of quill on scratchboard works relates closely to the careful approach that must be taken for conservation efforts with these animals and their habitats. The combination of wildlife and domestic animal portraits is meant to create a commonality between the two, asking whether one has more inherent value than the other.

Nathan attended the Mauser EcoHouse artist residency in Costa Rica after winning the Nanci Christopher photography grant and participated in the Farm Studio residency in Andore, Rajasthan, India. He has exhibited his work at the Super Wonder Gallery, Queen West Art Crawl, and Beaux Arts Brampton, as well as Eduardo Lira Gallery in Miami where he was a semi-finalist for ARTBOX.Projects and The Treasury in Pontiac, Michigan where he won 3rd place in the Handcrafted Category. Nathan’s art work has also been featured in Murze and ArtAscent Magazines. Through his work and experiences with the animals that he depicts, he is hoping to challenge some of the myths, perceptions, and preconceptions surrounding wildlife. Stories and imagery are incredibly important, and our understanding and relationship with nature is so often based around them. With the awareness that for some of these species, their very existence is at stake in our current world, Nathan hopes to challenge harmful practices through representation, education, and his own process of rewilding.

Nathan’s work has been greatly informed and enhanced by international artist residencies, and the incredible diversity of wildlife surrounding them. He explored the lush valleys and winding waterways of Puntarenas, Costa Rica during the Mauser EcoHouse, then the desert landscape and rocky hills of Rajasthan while attending the Farm Studio residency in India. He has exhibited his work across North America and internationally, including in the Arizona-Sonora Desert Gallery, Zurich Main Station, and the John B. Aird Gallery in Toronto. Awards for his work include 3rd place for the Boynes Emerging Artist Award, Best in Show for “Artists of the World” show at the Tall Sequoia Gallery, and a semi-finalist at ARTBOX.Projects Barcelona and Miami. His scratchboard work and photography have been published in ArtAscent and Murze Magazines. Nathan has a BFA from Western University in London, Canada.

Artist Statement

Scratchboard, by its very construction and purpose, is a very fragile medium - you create by taking away and any missed stroke could ruin what you have created so far. Humanity and its relation to nature is quite similar. Humans create their society by taking away, cutting down and stripping the resources to create their cities and culture. Their impact on the wildlife and habitats around them is deeply affected by this process, but also in how they build their culture, the stories told and myths created. The perception of particular animals due to their place in history can very well determine their livelihood. Are the animals viewed as a threat to humans, are they treasured for their fur or meat, do they have mythic properties on the black market, or are they perceived as a pest to be rid of? Does your pet have more inherent value than a wild creature? Creating expressive animal portraits with scratchboard creates a tenuous relationship between viewer and creature, where historical and cultural perceptions can deeply affect how they see the animal in front of them. The painstaking and slow process of creating the art is echoed by the careful approach that must be taken for examining some of the myths and perceptions of these animals and how that may affect conservation efforts. In this way I hope that by creating art, I can improve the relationships of humans and the cities they live in to the wildlife surrounding them.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that George Ann Johnson has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

George Ann is a professional, nationally recognized, wildlife artist based in Texas, USA. She specializes in creating realistic and detailed wildlife portraitures in scratchboard. George Ann was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 13th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Below are George Ann’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

George Ann Johnson is a nationally recognized wildlife artist. Her work has been published in various venues, including books, magazines, and catalogues and has been shown in numerous galleries. Professionally, George Ann has been an active artist for over 30 years. Having a strong natural talent, she initially began her art career painting professional race horses to help support her own horse business. This eventually led her into starting her own commercial art company. Her Kansas City-based company was utilized by businesses throughout the Midwest, California, and Hawaii. After several years of commercial art, she began her career in fine art by studying at the Danforth Museum of Fine Art in Boston. Her training at the Danforth propelled her to study with numerous artists through short courses and workshops. Through this training, George Ann has continually refined her skill as an artist. In an effort to give back, George Ann has utilized this training to present various workshops and demonstrations and has taught at East Central University. George Ann has been a member of numerous art guilds and organizations throughout the United States including the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA) and International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA). She acted as President for the CPSA Oklahoma Chapter and CPSA District Chapter Developer for the Eastern United States. She currently is an active member of the Corpus Christi Art Center and Rockport Art Center. George Ann is a realist artist. Although she has worked in watercolor and oils, George Ann’s principal media are scratchboard and colored pencil. It has been her recent exploration in the media of scratchboard that has allowed her to produce the high level of realism that is warranted by her talent and skill. As a result, her work has captured national attention. Her recent recognitions in competitions by The Southwest Artist Magazine and The Artist Magazine as well as becoming Merit Finalist in the national Dimensions Art Show and prestigious Rockport Texas Art Center are clear evidence that her work is increasing in popularity and value.

Artist Statement

I am a realist artist. My work is an effort to embody the three entities of Life: Physical, Mental, and Spiritual. Every piece is an adventure into understanding the animal in which I am drawing. Physically, I have a strong passion for texture. The challenge of producing multiple, different, and complimentary textures within a piece of art is always a goal in my work. Through this approach, I focus on the detail of scale. That is, my work is capable of being appreciated at any viewing level – from across the room to under a magnifying glass – I want my work to radiate clarity at all levels of perspective. Finally, the ultimate goal of my work is to have my subjects speak to the viewer. This is accomplished through the subject’s eyes. The goal of every piece is to have the spirit of the subject speak and captivate the viewer, and if possible, understand the subject in a new and different light.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Paula Wiegmink has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Paula is an award-winning artist based in Dunsborough, South Western Australia. Paula was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s recent 12th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Paula’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her artwork in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below are Paula’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

 

Artist Biography

Award-winning artist, Paula Wiegmink, was born in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe. She currently resides in Dunsborough, South Western Australia with her husband and children.

Having spent her early childhood on farms, she soon developed a love for the African bush and wildlife. Her interest in drawing and painting emerged at a very early age. Encouraged by her mother, she started sketching the animals on the farm and doing portraits of anyone willing to sit still long enough!

Paula spent twelve years training in the RAD - Royal Academy of Dancing and performed with the Rhodesia National Ballet. She taught dancing for twenty-five years, as well as conducting art classes at a private school in Salisbury/Harare for 3 years.

After migrating to Johannesburg, South Africa in 1979, she resumed her career teaching classical ballet and modern dance and judged numerous dance festivals and competitions. During this time, she was also studying art at the Da Vinci Fine Art Studio under the guidance of Carlo Sdoya. “Homeward Bound”, Paula's first exhibited painting at the Brush and Chisel Club, was purchased by the South African Railways.

In 1994, she immigrated to Perth, Western Australia with her family. Shortly after joining the Canning Arts Group, Paula was invited to exhibit as “Artist of the Month”'. She then went on to conduct all media night classes for the next 6 years. Her teaching extended to the Village Club retirement village where she conducted classes and tutored privately for eleven years.

In 2009, Paula launched her first book titled, “Footsteps in Time’, a family journey of her earliest, on her father’s side, from arriving in Africa in 1709 up to 2009. Over a 5-year period, Paula returned to Africa where her research took her on an incredible journey. The book launch coincided with her first major solo art exhibition, “The Winds of Change”.

Now able to immerse herself in her own creativity, expressing her passion for life through her art works, Paula enjoys experimenting with texture and colour, using multi-layering techniques in various mediums, styles and subjects. Through her art, she hopes to create awareness and draw attention to the vulnerability of endangered species and the natural world.

Paula works in various mediums, including oil, pastel, acrylics, watercolour and mixed media. Paula continues to exhibit in both group and solo exhibitions and her work hangs in private and corporate collections around the world.

 

Artist Statement

My love of nature and the diversity of the planets wildlife has and will continue to excite and motivate me. By using my art as a conduit I hope to open dialogue not only about my art practice but also drawing attention to many of the endangered species that are holding on to life by a thread. I do a lot of research about the subject I want to paint and in this way become very involved in the process. Along the way, they often seem to take on a life of their own. I also have a passion for rusty old discarded objects and try to collect them wherever and whenever I can find them, before they disappear altogether. So often things that are old are no longer considered of any use and it is in these objects that I find great beauty.

Over the years, I have been researching wildlife crime with particular interest in endangered species. My artwork is being used in an ongoing global poster awareness campaign, which indicates to me that the visual arts can have and send strong messages. Sometimes these messages can have more impact than the written word. So, for me, my art is about so much more than the exploration of visual beauty. If I am able to connect with the viewer in a way that conveys a message as well as hold appeal and hope for the future then I feel as though I have achieved something worthwhile. The subject matter often dictates to me what medium I should use and, generally, I go with my instincts on this matter. I enjoy experimenting with a variety of mediums and am always fascinated by how a painting can morph during the process of creation. This can sometimes be an easy process and at other time can cause great angst!

Although I have always had a keen interest in art, my own practice was only realized later in life. After bringing up three children it was only when they all left home that, I started on my own creative journey. My journey so far has taken me on an incredible spiritual path, which continues to unfold in a way that both surprises and thrills me. I continue to show my work in collaborative and solo exhibitions and often donate works to various organizations to assist in raising funds for conservation.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Nicole Wilde has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 14 days in the gallery’s Artist Showcase.

Nicole is an award-winning photographer and digital artist based in Southern California. Nicole was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s recent Solo Art Exhibition Series #11. The placement in this competition qualified her art to be showcased in this feature.

Nicole’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to over 350+ major news outlets, with inclusion on Google News & Bing News. In addition, the gallery will also be featuring and promoting her photography in the gallery’s various social media networks for further exposure.

Below is Nicole’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 images that were submitted to this competition.

 

Artist Biography

Nicole Wilde was born in Brooklyn, New York but always felt California’s siren call of freedom and creativity. In 1987, she moved to Los Angeles. From an early age, Nicole wrote poetry and short stories, followed by song lyrics, some of which were put to music for bands in which she played bass guitar. And yet, she still longed for a way to express her creativity in a visual format. Possessing a “good eye” but lacking a good camera, she purchased her first DSLR in 2012 and began a driving, all-encompassing attempt at learning photography through books, online videos, and workshops. She expanded her knowledge of Photoshop in the same way and eventually combined the two disciplines, thereby finally finding her creative outlet in digital art.

Nicole’s other lifelong passion has been animals. She has volunteered at rescues and shelters, photographed dogs to improve their chances of adoption, and co-ran a rescue sanctuary in California for wolves and wolfdogs, where three of the residents came home to live with her for ten years until their passing. It was inevitable that her love of animals and nature would find its way into her art. All of Nicole’s images begin with one or more of her photographs, which are taken in natural settings, zoos, or sanctuaries. These images may then be combined, altered, or enhanced using Photoshop, creativity, and imagination to create a final work of digital art. Nicole’s work has won international awards, been displayed in galleries, and been featured in magazines.

Nicole and her husband live in southern California with their two rescued northern breed dogs and boatloads of dog hair.

 

Artist Statement

Animals. Nature. Emotion. Connection. These are the things that drive my passion to create art. My work is about the emotional life of animals, the interconnection of all beings, and the unseen magic that surrounds us all. Each piece begins with one or more of my photographs. By applying equal parts Photoshop and imagination, bit by bit an image is transformed into a fantastical universe, or an artistic portrait with deep texture and emotion. My hope is that my art touches the soul, stirs the emotions, increases our respect and appreciation for animals, and acts as a catalyst to reflect on the beauty and magic that is within us and all around us.

The gallery’s competition for October 2018 was the gallery’s 8th Annual “Nature” Online Art Competition. 2D and 3D artists (including photography & digital art) from around the world, were called upon to make online submissions for possible inclusion into the Gallery’s November 2018 online group art exhibition.

Artists were asked for their interpretation of the “Nature” theme by submitting their best abstract or representational art for this competition.   The submission process and competition for the artists began in September 2018 and concluded on October 27, 2018.

The gallery received 742 entries from 22 different countries from around the world, as well as from 37 different states.   

The exhibition has been divided into three media categories.  Painting & Other Media, Photography & Digital and 3D Art.  In addition, there is an overall Winning Artists Category, which is the “best of the best” and consists of the ten (10) best entries comprised from the media categories.

The gallery also included Special Merit awards and Special Recognition awards for outstanding art. Many of the artists in either of these groups could have easily been included in the upper tier of our winners, as their art was also exceptional.

Artists can now post their images directly to their social media networks (See lower left-hand side of the Lightbox).  In order to leave the Slide Show at any time, just click on the X at the upper right side of the Lightbox in order to escape and that will take you back to the thumbnails images.

Below is Kathryn’s Artist Biography, her Artist Statement, along with 25 pieces of her paintings.  We hope that you will take the time to read Kathryn’s information and to take a look at her incredible life-looking wildlife drawings.

Artist Biography:

Kathryn Hansen grew up in rural Wisconsin in the 60's, which was a fantastic time to be an imaginative child! Her intense love of animals and art started at a very young age when she painted a ginormous brown owl in second grade, which proudly hung in the schools small library. Her family’s love of animals gave her the opportunity to have her own pets: hamsters, hermit crabs and assorted fish, so her bedroom resembled a pet shop more than a place to sleep!

Kathryn earned her BFA from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and went on to study illustration at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. After graduation her urban watercolors hung at one of the top galleries at that time, Posner Gallery in Milwaukee, as well as earning awards and commissions through the Wisconsin Percentage for the Arts Program.

In 1998 she moved to Southern California with her two small children, golden retriever and guinea pig and settled into the beautiful foothills north of Los Angeles and started up her art once again. But her relationship with her art and animals really took off after a 2 week safari to Kenya with her siblings in 2010. That amazing experience evolved her art into what you see today, highly detailed wildlife portraits in graphite and colored pencil of elephants, lions, zebras, egrets, owls and more.

Artist Statement:

It's been a very natural journey for me to blend my love and devotion of animals and nature with my passion for art. They have been powerful forces in my life since childhood and a never ending source of inspiration in my art.

The foundation of my work is in capturing the essence and soul of the animals I draws. The rendering of the eyes, their intensity and beauty are an integral facet of my work. I feel that this is best expressed through the simplicity of the pencil, using high contrast and textural variations to achieve a richness and depth to each drawing and providing a level of complexity whereby I can artistically capture the animals’ spirit.

Through my inspired likeness of wildlife, I hope to encourage awareness of conservation efforts necessary to protect the animals on our planet. To inspire the viewer to realize their connection to all living things, to have positive impact on this planet and to become part of the conservation movement so that we can preserve the exquisite complexity of our earth for years to come!
