Oksana Zotkina Peura

Oksana conveys her fascination with the animal world and nature in general and feels fortunate to have been living in New England for the past 20+ years where she is inspired by beautiful landscapes and open skies. Her passion is to meet other artists in a plein air environment.
Oksana writes: “For most of my studio works: I either start the painting on site and continue working later, or complete a small painting for future reference in addition to photos I take. If I can’t paint on site – I do sketching and note-taking to help me remember the colors and the overall mood of the place and time. Sketching is usually done in pencil or a ballpoint pen. Oil is my favorite paint medium, but I also work in acrylic medium and did several mural projects in Acrylic paint on a large scale.”

Cynthia Harris

Cynthia Harris considers art to be a form of communication through emotions; something that cannot be put into words may be expressed through drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. The visual language fills the gap where words are inadequate. Her work in scratchboard, oil and acrylic media, reflect her passion for nature’s inspiration found in the flora and fauna of different earth ecosystems. Capturing the essence of the subject in her paintings, she hopes to raise awareness of endangered species. For more information about her artwork contact Cynthia at cjharris5@hotmail.com
