Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Brian Binder 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.

Brian is an award-winning artist based in Colorado, USA. He was selected as 1 of the top twelve finalists in the gallery’s 25th Solo Art Exhibition Series. The placement in this competition qualified his art to be showcased in this feature.

Brian’s Artist Showcase feature will be promoted to hundreds of 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 Brian’s Artist Biography, Artist Statement and 5 artworks that were submitted to this competition.

Artist Biography

Brian Binder is mostly a self-taught artist. He was raised in Colorado. In Colorado, you are surrounded by many different environments and animals. From plains to mountains and, yes, even sand dunes Brian’s focus is on wildlife and domestic animals in interesting and beautiful settings. He spends hours creating the soul of the animal through its eyes. The eyes are what gives the drawing it's heart and soul.

Brian usually sees the animal in one habitat and then draws them in a different environment that he thinks they would prefer to be in. Sometimes it is a shock what a drawing turn into because it is opposite of what he thought it might when he started. Brian only uses pencil and color pencils to create his works. He does not use solvents for blending in order not to damage the paper.

Brian hope everyone who views his work feel the enjoyment he gets out creating each piece.

Artist Statement

In my artwork, I try to capture the spirit of the animal. I like to invoke humor, deep thought, or positive vibes through the animal to the viewer.

Brian’s art can be found on his website.

Artist Biography

Deimante Bruzguliene was born in Lithuania on May 20, 1980 and came to the United Kingdom in 2004. Her love of all animals started at a very young age. She was always keen to rescue animals. Deimante is an Artist who is completely self-taught. She is breath taking realistic wildlife paintings of animals. Deimante works in a variety of media including acrylic, oil, pastel, watercolour, graphite and mixed media.

Artist Statement

“When it is my time to leave this world, I wish to do so knowing that I have left paintings that inspire others to appreciate the beauty of the natural world.”

I have been a lifelong artist. I've been drawing since I can remember. Art class has always been my favourite class. My style is realist, as I am obsessed with detail. I have always had a deep love of animals and nature. I find inspiration in all kinds of creatures, both domestic and wildlife, big, small, or in between.

My favourite subjects are wildlife. I love drawing animals as it is a way of accessing the secrets of the natural world. I can see their souls through their eyes, which I try to capture in my paintings. Animals are as individual as humans, but for me they manifest a purer and more genuine spirit to the outside world than do human beings. I can love animals by painting them, leaving a legacy of their existence and hopefully bringing to the viewer the same joy that I experience painting them.

I would like more people to be able to experience the connection that I have with animals. I wish to take this further to really convey that animals have their own personality and soul. Every portrait I do enriches my life, for the subject enters my heart. We are all connected. Connections are magical, providing an opportunity to nurture patience, compassion, love and caring.

Deimante’s work can be viewed on her website.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Maureen Ravnik 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.

Maureen is an award-winning artist based in Colorado, USA. Maureen 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.

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

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.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that Lorna Beecroft 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.

Lorna is an award-winning artist based in Canada. Lorna 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.

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

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.

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.

VICTORIA, BC, CANADA – March 17, 2016 - / Artist Richard Wong has announced the launch of his portrait art.  This is a line of fine art which specializes in pet and wildlife portraits. 

Richard Wong is an artist living and creating in Victoria, BC, Canada.  He did not even know how to paint a few short years ago.  Richard explains his artistic journey in the following statement, “Art has definitely become a personal journey.  I did not know how to paint until I decided to take up watercolor as a hobby after I retired.  It was working for the Ministry of Environment for the Province of British Columbia that exposed me to all that is nature and wildlife.  I took that interest and started painting as a hobby, not knowing where it will lead.  Capturing nature in all its glory is now a passion.”

Since then, Wong has taken his new found passion and turned it into a unique style, second career and a business.  He describes his style as Oriental Watercolors on Japanese art paper.

Richard continues his thoughts about his art, “My art has evolved since studying the Asian and Western approaches six years ago.  I remember finding a unique Japanese art paper called masa, and started experimenting.  It wasn’t long before I found I can create unique marks and images.  This opened the doors to public and peer recognition, and led to amazing opportunities at home and out-of-country.  Painting wildlife and pets is an absolute joy, and seeing that joy expressed by viewers is most rewarding and gratifying.”

About the Artist:

Richard Wong is a professional wildlife and pet artist based in Victoria, BC, Canada.  His background in the traditional ways of Chinese art, contemporary western watercolor and experimentations with Japanese art paper has resulted in unique imagery, international opportunities, recognition and awards.

Wong has used his attraction to capturing and displaying the essence of wildlife to include pets.  He now works closely with all animal lovers, including pet owners to capture the lives and memories of their favorite wildlife and pets in vibrant Oriental Watercolor.
