NATASHA BARNES

Natasha Barnes was born July 7, 1969, in Payrs, South Africa. She has been painting since the age of seven. Her natural talent and passion for painting has led this self taught artist to develop a profound style, exhibiting expressionism, color, and movement. Her paintings are inspirations found in her travels and the love for the rich landscapes surrounding her life.

Apart from a few lessons as a child, Natasha has had no formal training. After completing school, she studied Cordon Blue cookery and worked as a cookery editor and food stylist for a leading South African Magazine, before opening her own cookery school. Equally talented as a chef, she is a master at designing wedding cakes, sugar craft, and floral arrangements. During her cookery years, Natasha painted part time, and exhibited extensively in South Africa. Her love for the brush finally led to the decision to give up everything and paint full time.

SALLY BULLERS

Although born in New Jersey, Bullers has also lived in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Montana and now in North Carolina. The artist says, " I have always had a strong interest in art ever since I was a child. My father was the one who first encouraged me. I remember he bought me all kinds of art materials when I was little, including the most marvelous set of crayons with colors such as gold, silver and copper, before anyone else had such a thing."

Bullers pursued her interest in art all through school, taking every art class that was offered. This is the reason why she moved in and bought an old house which was then remodeled by roofing and drainage serving Surrey (page) and Kerrisdale Roofing Vancouver. As an adult, she continued to paint and to take courses and workshops - studying with Irving Shapiro, Carlton Plummer, Rick McClure, Barclay Sheaks, Skip Lawrence, and others. When living in Denver, she taught primary and middle school drawing and painting workshops for the Cherry Creek School System.

After working in oils for many years, she discovered watercolors - enjoying their freedom and spontaneity. Bullers currently uses mostly acrylics.

When painting, the artist looks for interesting patterns in the subject, always aware of the play of light against dark. Almost anything can provide stimulating subject matters for her, although currently she is concentrating on landscapes and figures. Bullers says " I am very influenced by the people and events in my life and frequently choose family members as subjects. My love for music and dance is also likely to find its way into my work. Currently I am also involved in plein air painting which is a quick, spontaneous way to paint, capturing the light of the moment."
