Michele actualizes her vision in acrylic paint on canvas, and we also love her linoleum cut prints and drawings.

Michelle has exhibited her work in numerous group shows and many of her art pieces remain in private art collections. Her public art work was placed on permanent display in the Florida State Capitol Buildings. In 2010, she had a solo exhibition in Coconut Grove, Florida in conjunction with the Coconut Grove Art Stroll, displaying over sixteen of her artworks in the transformed Dharma Studio space for the evening along with live music and cocktails.

In addition to her skull art, Michelle has a series of large scale flowers and tropical plant paintings in provocative colors. Her style incorporates glazing and hands-on finger painting techniques to produce texture and depth in her flower petals, such as in her painting titled Irises.

One of Michelle’s interests includes an exploration of how glazing and layers affect light on the subject in her paintings.

Michelle Staton developed her business sense academically. After attending Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and receiving admission to both Harvard and Ringling School of Art and Design to study fine art, Michelle decided to pursue a career in business by completing her bachelor’s degree in accounting at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She has five years experience as a professional accountant, and applied her business sense to creative arts, founding Scarlet Art Studios which explores custom UV reactive and couture clothing, as well as offering other crafty interpretations of everyday objects.

#Art and #Artists : The Brilliant Works of Ula Einstein

I’ve been thinking about Ula Einstein’s art over the past several months, ever since she contacted me about her work. My overall impression is that her artworks are simultaneously detailed and minimal. It can become something of a conundrum thinking about this dichotomy. Yet that’s what stays with me–her lightweight airy paper works so complexly patterned. Even the color spots in the artist’s mixed media originals and prints contain an illusion that they are free-floating forms.

As she encompasses so much territory, Ula refers to herself as a “multi-disciplinary” artist “engaged with fragility and substance.”

Ula Einstein’s “mixed media” materials include paper, fire, hot glue, color pencils, and inks, as she employs the active techniques of burning, cutting, crumpling, tearing, piercing, erasing, taping, and stitching, among other actions. Ula sums up all this activity by simply stating — “making is part of the content.”

Since Artist Marketing Resources became a part of what’s happening online, beginning in 2008, we’ve noticed more multi-purpose organizations springing up–such as Tumuult, based in Berlin, Germany–which has both online and live art projects. Tumuult is scheduled to open in November of this year as an interdisciplinary art gallery focusing on up-and-coming artists and environmental issues,  working with both artists and scientists. Tumuult will be engaging with their public via pop-up installations and lectures.  Plus, they are a creative agency involved in Interior Design and furniture design, and publishes limited edition prints, an art magazine, and art books in English, French, and German.

Submit to the first issue of their magazine here. Find out more about their Pop-up projects and Tumuult publishing here.

These are all areas of interest to us–art magazines, limited edition artist prints, art exhibition venues, and Interior Design art sales– since we promote and submit artists’ work to art magazines and provide publication resources to artists in our e-list here, and have gathered together an extensive list of art print resources for artists here, provide an e-list of over five-thousand art galleries here, and a resources e-list of art consultants which includes select Interior Designers here, as well as Art Sales venues here, and Art Licensing resources here and photography resources here.

Oil Paintings by Artist Maria Gibbs Depict Moments From Everyday Life

Maria Gibbs paints to fulfill her passion for the world around her. She loves the artistic process and the act of painting in oils in her studio. She follows her creative inner voice producing stunning images of subjects that include flowers, succulents, landscapes, and people dancing. Her use of vivid colors bring the paintings to life and her combined brush and palette knife work result in remarkable and subtle nuances in texture. Maria works her large floral images in two series–the first, stylized in nature with much romantic appeal, and the second, near photo-realism. She is excited to share these paintings with you in the galleries on her website  http://mariagibbsfineart.com/.
