Mary Mirabal

“I paint with bold colors, the colors of my soul.  An artist and dreamer who paints contemporary abstract expressionist works.  A child of the 70’s – now in my 50’s and ‘Gigi’ to four amazing grandchildren.  I’m a lover of COLOR as you will see in my work.  I was in my 50’s before I first picked up a paint brush (not including paint by numbers kits as a child).  I hope you will enjoy my designs.”

Dan Michiels

Perhaps influenced by his travels of the world, Dan Michiels’ work has a distinct psychedelic gravity. Using a ruler, a pencil, and an array of color, he painstakingly created renderings of the mind’s action. His artwork can be liberally amorphous registrations of shape and color or pulsating, rigorous grid structures, carefully filled-in to create a tessellated all-over composition.

Emerging artist, inspired by nature. Mediums include a range of materials from acrylics, watercolors, pencils, graphite, pastels, Conte and charcoal, photography and digital manipulation.
