Jill is a self-taught painter with a love for the architecture and style of New England. Though now a studio painter, she has also worked extensively with photography. The viewer can see that influence as she captures light and character in intimate portraits of rural and coastal New England. Jill is deliberately working with contrast and color to create pieces which engage the viewer and invite quiet nostalgia. Her work preserves moments of captured time, and the time she spends on her paintings is a meditation on each moment.

Ann is an award winning artist living in upstate New York's Adirondack Mountains. Born in Louisivlle, KY, Ann began traveling and living throughout the United States at the age of 18. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, she and her family moved to Denver, CO where Ann began to focus on her painting and fell in love with the western landscape. Even though she lives in a beautiful part of the country, where plein air painting is a challenge almost any time of year, Ann also spends time painting on the coast of Maine and throughout the Southwest.
Ann's approach to the landscape is to simplify as much as possible in order to create the strongest paintings. "I want my viewers to know how I felt about a place when I painted it. I'm not trying to copy what I see nor am I interested in lots of detail. I want to suggest a subject with the buildup of paint and exciting brushstrokes."

Antonia Tyz Peeples
Born in 1957, Antonia grew up in a creative household and was encouraged by her mother, a painter, and her father, a photographer, to pursue painting; she started taking lessons from local artists in her home state of Connecticut at the age of ten. She continued her studies after high school at Eastern Connecticut State University and Silvermine Guild Art Center in New Canaan, Connecticut.
To quote Antonia:
“Water is a never ending source of inspiration for me. Each day, one painting after another, I seek an ever deepening understanding of its essence. The more I observe, the more it seems there is to discover. The surface designs, deep waters and shore breaks offer an infinite array of beautiful complexity. Ever changing and omnipresent, the ocean is such a universal part of our existence. There is a certain feeling of connectedness when sitting by its shores. The endless rhythm, power and mystery of the sea course through our very veins. Choosing to explore water and its visual language through my paintings has been an enlightening and uplifting gift that I enjoy sharing. Thank you for taking the journey with me.

"Creating a painting requires so much more than the mechanics of working a brush on paper...talents given or developed, to go beyond the simple illustrating of a subject or an idea. You have to draw from all available resources, one's emotions, dreams, environmental influences, bringing all parts to fruition in a concrete form without losing the passion that compelled you to create in the first place. Most often the settings of my paintings are purely fictional, props to set the desired mood, yet highly reflective of the people, places and experiences that have most influenced my work. Each painting creates a new challenge, new discoveries in my mediums, rekindling a spirit within that makes art more than a rewarding, satisfying profession...it makes art a way of life."
"Dry brush is the technique I use in most of my watercolor paintings. I lightly draw my composition on either 140 lb. or 300 lb. cold press Arches paper and begin painting thin layers, creating the desired balance of lights and darks. I often feel that I'm drawing with the brush rather than painting. Using less water allows me greater control of the medium making it easier to reach the level of detail I like".
Stacy Barter's oil paintings depict her intense fascination with light and atmosphere. "I am constantly striving to capture depth and dimension in my oil paintings. Working from life, whether it's from flowers or a model is exhilarating and ever changing. This is my passion, life dedication, and contribution.”

Mark H. Brown was born in 1974. His love for art was evident as a young child, spending many hours in his bedroom drawing cars, animals and things of his imagination. Through the years, he studied the paintings of the masters through books and visits to museums and held a continual fascination for the realism of the dutch masters. While enjoying a wide spectrum of styles and subject matter, Mark found that his temperament and passion took him in the direction of classical realism. In the pursuit of that goal, he furthered his studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia, PA. After his studies were complete, he and his wife, Elizabeth, moved to Carlisle, PA where they now reside with their three children, Luke, Eliana and Aliya.
Mark has been enjoying painting full time as an artist since 2000, while he and his family travel throughout the US exhibiting in outdoor art shows, gallery shows and group shows. Mark has received numerous awards at outdoor shows; including three best in shows, several 1st Place in oils and numerous other awards. He has also been selected as a finalist in the Artists Magazine Annual Contest during two different years. He was pleased to be included in the 2009 Oil Painters of America National Competition with his painting of "The Chocolate Pot." Mark's painting "Bananas" was included in the 2011 National Oil Painters of America Competition, being selected as one of 168 paintings chosen from 2100 applications.

Born and raised in southern New Hampshire, I currently live by the mountains and lakes in my husband’s hometown of Grantham with our baby girl, stepson, three dogs, four cats and beautiful gardens full of flowers and vegetables. Most of my inspiration comes from our colorful peonies and wildflowers we have growing on our property, my other love and inspiration comes from traveling to new countries, exploring beautiful beaches and sea life.
I've had a love for art and painting since I was a child and I’m beyond lucky that I get to paint every day as my career. I attended the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University and earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art. I paint in acrylics and oils and I’m constantly learning and trying new techniques, mediums and subjects. Painting mostly figuratively and non objectively I hope to portray happiness through my colors and subject matter. I love abstract, impressionistic art and am always pushing myself to be more free with my brush strokes and push the boundaries of my subject.
