    Inspired People – Drew Harrison addendum

    In my introduction to Drew, I mentioned one of his paintings that I refer to as ‘the frog’. That is totally not its title, but Drew was kind enough to send me an image of this painting so I could share it with all of you. Absolutely stunning work, the kind that reduces me to…

    I’d like to introduce you to the art of Melissa Moss. Beautiful, curious work, exploring colour and shape with an originality that caught me the moment I saw it. She has an uncanny ability to balance a composition while working with a kind of complex simplicity of design. One mark by Melissa Moss can mean…

    This week I am excited to feature Karin Zeller. I stumbled across Karin’s work a few months back and instantly fell in love with her use of colour and vibrant subjects. I was stunned at both her skill in realism and abstract, and everything in between. Her work is a must see, so I’m really…

    This week we have Keely Willoughby. I met Keely while I was in college, eighteen years ago. She was a close friend who inspired me with her colourful creations. Back then she was painting furniture psychedelic colours and she has always had a strength of character that I’ve admired. We lost contact with each other…
