Susan Maurie Grier was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska. She also has lived in the Southwest, Arizona and Texas. Susan descends from Scotch, Irish, English and Cherokee ancestry. She feels very connected to her heritage, especially the Native American Cherokee on her paternal grandmother's side.
Inspired by a fellow art enthusiast and friend, Susan started seriously painting in 1998. She began working in oil pastels; but later settled on permanent markers whose vibrant colors and accessibility in various size tips intrigued her. She continues to explore other mediums in creating her paintings.
Her subjects come from her heart and soul and her mind. They are conjured from her readings, personal experience, and travels. Despite being inhibited by blindness in one eye she continues to work in vibrant colors on paper. The works presented here make up a series of paintings depicting strong women.

It was Shane Lopez from the Gallup Organization who summed it up succinctly when he said, “It’s simple, Tom. You’re the storyteller”.
Tom Kerr has spent the better part of 40 professional years observing, listening, painting, writing and drawing to one end: he loves to tell stories. No matter which medium he chooses that’s the end game.
That mission applies directly to his portraits as well his landscapes. “Every face tells a story, and every pose enhances the message. At the end of the day I want the viewer to know something about what they have seen”.

“My early years growing up on the family dairy farm in Eastern Nebraska, provided me with wonderful inspiration. Before I began to paint, I was an artist at heart, deeply admiring the art of the Creator. I have loved art and Him ever since. Painting has become my way of saying “Thank You!” and “Look!” For many years I have expressed that the production of painting comes from an overflow. I would get so joyful and enthusiastic about what I was seeing and feeling that I would just have to share it with someone. Lately I have found that the whole process, from the searching for a scene that would make a good painting, the first stroke to the last is exciting and peaceful at the same time. “Enjoying God’s glories and speaking them out again, we were made for this”, is one of my favorite quotes and pretty much captures what painting is about for me. Although I still work with transparent watercolor, in the last few years I have begun adding colored pencil and now painting mostly on Aquabord as a new surface. Because Aquabord is tough and forgiving, I can scratch, scrape, scribble, and lift color with a freedom I did not have before. I enjoy the editing and problem solving process needed to create various images. Also, a fun difference…the painting can be protected and framed without glass!“

My lens finds the beauty in nature's settings from my backyard to the banks of the Niobrara. I wait for that special instance when a butterfly is poised on the edge of a flower or an animal locks eyes with me and we share that brief moment of discovery.
As an industrial designer, I have worked with wood and other products for years, and revel in nature's beauty combined with industrial items.I own my own classic corvette and attend car events weekly, always on the lookout for the next great subject and image. I enjoy the details of the great classics and try to represent them with a unique viewpoint.

"I am engaged. I am not, as Robert Henri described, 'A Weekend Painter.' I get up in the morning thinking about art and go to bed in the evening thinking about the same. My painting fuels my existence. Oil-on-canvas is my primary medium and continues to be my favorite. The texture, the smell, the challenge of mixing exactly what I want. It’s all there. My focus of late is the “Still Life”. Is there a more time-honored genre? Each still life has its own separate challenges, and I love it."
"Composition, energy, scale, colors, an interpretation" defines Bob's art.
Cheryl Kelley's photorealistic oil paintings of classic automobiles emphasize the sensuality of the vehicles and reveal their underlying feminine qualities. Each painting showcases a lustrous car, exquisitely detailed and beautiful in its own right. A deeper inspection reveals a more intricate narrative playing in the shadows and reflections of the automotive surface. By exposing the world behind and beyond the vehicle, Cheryl explores the connections and contrasts between them and their surroundings.
After graduating, Cheryl chose to stay in Houston, where she grew up, building her own home on the outskirts of town and continuing to study at the University of Houston. Artistically, she gravitated toward abstract expressionism. She first painted cars in order to capture the abstract play of light off their curved, reflective surfaces. Quickly she found her artistic voice in photorealism.
Cheryl is a recipient of a 2012 Pollack Krasner Foundation Grant. She now resides on a farm in Northern California, where she not only paints, but also gardens, raises goats, and sings in a local rock band.
