Foreword: Our Vision Art is everywhere today, yet far too often artists feel like nameless, faceless entities – lacking credit, acknowledgement, and recognition. If there is a single word that one could use to describe the situation, it’s this: heartbreaking. When we started out as individual artists 40 years ago, with no money and no connections in the art world, we struggled for years to get “out there” – to get noticed and to get our artwork sold. Our efforts were in vain. Let’s face it; being an artist is not a bed of roses and it’s not just a “higher calling.” The art world is a tough business, and if we’re really honest with ourselves, we’re in it to become famous and to make money selling our artwork. Isn’t it great to make a living doing what you love and what you do best – painting? However, for most artists, this dream never becomes a reality. This is how our “International Art Book: Inspiration” came about. Featuring award-winning artists with varying styles, this book contains an exclusive collection of some of the best art from around the globe. Are you an emerging artist trying to turn what you love to do into a career? Or are you a mid-career artist seeking massive international exposure? In either case, rest assured that we will help you find an audience and sell your art. We will get your name out there in the international art arena, connecting you to serious art buyers and collectors. We have only one vision: to help budding artists – to help you – realize your dreams. That’s what has made our international art book so successful. Every year we receive more than 3,500 applications from all over the world: the USA, the UK, Germany, Australia, the Netherlands, France, Portugal, Spain, Russia, Canada...even Japan and China. The list goes on and on. Throughout the years, “Inspiration” has become a handbook for every professional collector looking for cutting-edge trends and fresh names in the world of art. They are looking for you! You just need to help them find you!

Tomonori Nishimura UK

www.tomonorinishimura.co.uk contact@tomonorinishimura.co.uk

Tomonori developed the style of the Ginkgo Ferrum series, more abstract than repre­ sentational, with strong stroke marks and images of ginkgo reflected on brush marks. The new styles, metallic painting of endan­ gered plants and Ginkgo ferrum, are better received than his previous style of meta­ llic flowers among galleries, curators and art publishers. He began to receive more opportunities for exhibition and art fairs worldwide. Tomonori is currently develo­ ping a new style, Bubble City. It’s based on a structuralistic concept — an expression of reality, perception, systems and nature. Tomonori Portrait (Photographed by Thahab Osaimi)

“I want to express the harmony of nature and society in various styles. Work of metallic painting of endangered species has materialistic view that integrates natural en­ vironment and industrial development. Most of flowers in my painting are extinct in the wild. They are cultivated by people and protected from extinction yet the cause of the extinct in the wild may be loss of nature caused by social development. Ginkgo series explores about life, evolution and civilization. Ginkgo is an endangered species and most ancient tree in the world existing since Jurassic era. Bubble City has more metaphysical view involving the concept of real and process of recognition. Nature/Society relation is thought as prior and post states of socialization. The valid­ ity of socialization is questioned through the use of bubble. I use images of my paintings in Print works, visualizing the meaning of the painting with CG effect and expanding its expression.”

I see the world in an unusual way. My eyes con足 stantly capture fleeting moments & hidden details of nature, objects and spaces; my mind & imagina足 tion then weave these memories creating a cocktail of possibilities. I love experimenting with new sur足 faces and new technologies to create my art. I am passionate about biomimicry and how nature is our greatest teacher. I get touched moved and inspired by natural geometry and playing with the macro and micro images. Ashley paints acrylic paintings using a very expressive style full of energy and emotions inspired by the COBRA art movement; where the pro足 cess is as important as the final outcome based on a working method of spontaneity and experiment.

With interdisciplinary mediums I accent space to create appreciation of the moment. The practice is informed by the concern for the relationship between contempo足 rary culture, the environment and history. The process is the exploration of attributes, concepts, and principles of composition, color, line, shape, scale, surface and tex足 tures, in different mediums to explore an aesthetic in which the spectator becomes participant. The discovery of material provokes exploration and advocates to trust in the treasures and experience found in process and life.

I’ve never understood the “What does it mean?” dilemma. Simply put, my pieces mean what­ ever you experience while looking at them. I hope that they draw you in and evoke a reac­ tion. I create each piece as it leads me. There is seldom a plan or design, but several have a special meaning to me. I try to portray har­ mony and disharmony, whimsy and humor.

I am a professional full time Artist based in Montreal Canada with several decades of experience. I paint whimsical figurative paintings mostly with oil. I consider my stile comical and one of a kind. The humor is the key to all my paintings. My perception of the world is always from a comical point of view and that is what keeps me alive. The goal of my paintings is to bring back laughter and humor to people lives. I love to create tex足 tured artworks on maisonettes, wood and canvas using acrylics, oil an oil pastels. When creating painting I hope i am sending a happy energy in an effort to bring a smile on your face.

I’ve always loved art, music and dance. When I capture joyful and moving moments of life in my pictures, I mix the shining colors for my art according to these moments. For me there is a parallel between the harmony of colors and harmony of musical intervals. Both have the power to stir strong feelings in us. Both color and music sweep the dust from our soul and make us come alive.

The concept of “altered” reality has become such a common thing that it seems unusual to say something new about it. I tend to see art as some kind of a “single body”– something which is be­ yond any cultural, technical, ideological differences, – or which is in a way deprived of any epoch, genre or the ways the author uses to obtain it. All through the years of numerous experiments and reframing I’ve come to work in something which can be called mixed­media technique, that is, combining multiple elements of self­made photos with digital painting. – What I get as a result is something actually bordering on fine­art photography and illustration. My goal is to create some unexisting Universes as some “puzzles” or kaleidoscopes, so that one single still could reveal the idea of a short motion picture of an “altered reality” within it.

Lying in Wait (Oil on canvas)

I am Dorothy Slikker born in Bakersfield, California USA on 12/01/1940 I have been painting since 1976 after I was married and had three sons. It has been a long road through the art world to have achieved the success of becoming a Contempo足 rary Master Artist. I paint in a unique way using a soft orange on the canvas and then adding the black study to show the depth and shadows of the piece that I have in mind to create. After the black study I apply the clear medium to help my oils move around the canvas and not dry to quickly. I paint land足 scapes, animals and people, lately mixing the two together. My goal is to show life as it was in the 20th century.

Bhride (Aqua-resin, Hydro-stone, Stainless steel)

Denisa specializes in the creation of large relief sculptures combi­ ning classical and contemporary materials and techniques. Large and imposing while poetic and femi­ nine, Denisa’s art is intended to be spiritually healing and powerful in its symbolic intension. Using clay as the canvas on which she communi­ cates, the artist offers us imagery that is vibrant with mystical and historical elements. She puts for­ ward an iconography that is time­ less and strongly feminine, while rich in technique and intention. Through her work, she offers a very personal look into the necessity to contrast past with present, personal with universal, reality with dream state.

Over the years Coban’s painting style and tech­ niques have developed and broadened. Jo­ seph’s favorite style is realism and portrai­ ture, as that of old masters’ paintings as they have stories and hidden messages to tell. From one day to the next, Joseph is able to switch to completeley different subjects and styles. He says “Life would be very boring if one does only one thing over again and again”.

Bedtime Tales (Photography (film))

Margaret A. Harrell, an author and photo­ grapher, is a three­time fellow at MacDowell Colony and has been for several years listed in the prestigious Marquis Who’s Who in Ameri­ can Art. Her focus in photograpy is clouds—on film, not digital. She has shown her work in Romania, Canada and the U.S.


Fractal (Photography (film))

Sun Spill (Photography (film))

Cloud Gathering – Progression (Photography (film))

“ I was drawn to photography by many dreams in which I stared at the sky, astonished as strange clouds kept moving, transforming into elaborate figurative scenes. Once I started photographing clouds, I experimented repeatedly with light and the sun. By luck, in Belgium, where I was living, clouds were in full view, and there was just the kind of film development I needed. It was tricky at first to get the images developed at all. Many artists loved staring at objects till images emerged. Victor Hugo sometimes sprinkled coffee dregs over his landscape drawings. Da Vinci got ideas from chance patterns on dirt­streaked walls, multicolored stones, ashes, clouds, . . . which he compares to “the sound of bells, in whose pealing you can find every name and word you can imagine.” 49


Mark C. Smith

I pursue art and artistic pursuits solely for the joy of the creation. I find satisfaction in the process of moving from a blank canvas to a depiction of some aesthetically pleasing scene. If someone shares an appreciation of my finished work, the validation is humbling and gratifying; but painting is for the ex足 pression of the soul and a yearning for something larger, outside of yourself. Acceptance is second足 ary to the satisfaction of creation and expression.

Paulette Mortimer Bahamas

paulyworksfineart.imagekind.com pmpmorders4@gmail.com

My love for fine art photography developed du­ ring my college years in Miami where I was ex­ posed to handcolouring, handtoning, pinhole, colour, and panoramic photography as well as experimenting with different printing processes and developing different types of film and paper. I made sure that I took classes that offered some­ thing new. When I made the decision to make a living from doing art nine years ago my inspira­ tion came from a variety of sources. The last six years have been focused on channeling my late father’s inner spirit and his love for music, love of nature, and architecture.

“I try to create a new appreciation of a scene with every image and I am often looking for unthinkable scenes to photograph and recreate that remarkable look in infrared. Infrared films initially gave me the ability to make pictures with a special look and I am often delighted to hear that each image sparks an emotion often positive. The surreal colour of dark skies with snow­white foliage and increased contrast appeals to my artistic roots. I love working with this medium because it challenges me to try endless possibilities and at the end of the day it makes me feel good.” 53

I am a German painter, psychiatrist and medical psy­ chotherapist. I have developed to be an Urban Artist with a lot of international contacts, working with digital art, playing around with techniques of Pop Art and Impres­ sionism. My pictures base of a multimedia process of photography, painting in oil, watercolours, spray colours or pastel and digital art. Very simplified three­coloured portraits may develop as well as exciting rural land­ scapes, especially of my home, the “Westerwald”. I want to show how beautiful creation is. I want to illustrate how absolutely beautiful every human being is, every animal, every landscape, every moment in our individual awareness can be.

Healing – White Buffalo Returns (Mixed Media - Acrylic - Ink Calligraphy - on canvas)


I am committed to co­creating heartfelt expressions of life’s journey. My paintings combined with mixed media collage incorporate images from my personal life experiences, a love of dance, written messages, calligraphy and photographic images from my travels to Jamaica, Europe, Peru, Mexico, Belize, Hawaii and most recently India. I am inspired by different cultures, expressions of movement, heart connections and spi­ ritual awareness. Calligraphy in various languages along with the texture I create as a fiber artist adds a three dimensional element to my paintings.

Most of my artwork represents deeper levels of feminine awaken­ ing by encoding multiple layers of images that trigger memories of ancient and present wisdom. In some of my recent compositions, the combination of calligraphic and Asian symbols, ancient text and sa­ cred sites helps create a deeper level of resonance. I create my work to remind one to embrace the connection to all relations. 57

The expressions in my work come from the subconscious, the heart space and from within, rather than from a plan to create a specific image. Using movement, meditation and healing sounds as a prompt to begin the paintings, the art­ work expresses the connection to the Divine Feminine and Mothering Peace. Through many layers of multiple media, writing in graphite, hand­woven fibers, painting and transfer images, I am revisiting my spiritual journey as an artist using creative expressions. My hope is that my original creations open our hearts and touch our souls to inspire and lift our spirits. I will continue along a theme that speaks to people’s hearts and touches them in ways that are healing and helpful in developing an understanding of our interconnectedness. 58

Marcela Carvalho, Daniel Carvalho and José Santos are Al­ tera art collective. Altera works with motion (Visual Mu­ sic) and still images (Sequential Art) in a way that makes them intrinsically connected. The Sequential Art brings to the viewer the nuances and details of the Visual Music work frozen in time. Water dynamics is the central element of our art. We started from an extensive library of images, created over many years of field work.

Outflow Sequence 4 (Limited edition Fine Art print)

Our workflow begins creating highly variable imagery: computer足generated or live capture of cha足 otic natural phenomena. The primary sequences are then assembled into multilayers, revealing all the richness and complexity of the natural phenomena. Our printed images are derived from dif足 ferent Visual Music works. From reflection to refraction, to the organic shapes of river stones, we bring focus to the different kinds of colors, lines and shapes created by this natural process. Our intention is to immerse the viewer in the abstract images, creating a unique sensorial experience.

For three­and­a­half years now I’ve photographing por­ traiture. It started in school, where I worked on mini­pho­ toshoots in a make­up artist course. One of the pupils was very interested in this and after a while we agreed to do a photoshoot at her home. I enjoyed ­ and still enjoy ­ pho­ tography. My style is more beauty and fashion. The prob­ lem I run into is that I don’t have too many photoshoots per year. I would like to do this on a more regular basis and earn some money with it, so I can combine my work as a teacher with being a photographer.

My name is Marie Manon and I grew up in a small Lau足 rentian village in the province of Quebec. As a child, I observed my father painting beautiful scenery, for his own pleasure, and I still remember the lovely unfi足 nished paintings and paint brushes all around the living room. My first attempts at painting were in my teens but then life took me elsewhere. I have taken many art classes but I consider myself as a self足taught artist. In 2010, I decided to try abstract painting on canvas, a universe unknown to me, which offers me freedom of expression and movement, which I adore.

Experiments with texture (Oil on canvas)

74

The work of contemporary artist, Michael Piper is in­ spired primarily by the golden age of Baroque painting and is a modern reinterpretation of this classic imag­ ery. Piper focusses predominantly on the human face and form capturing the essence of the subject between layers of paint and portraying emotion through ges­ ture and expression. Piper’s work ties together loose abstract brushwork with a refined representational approach to create a feeling of life within the skin of his subject. The work of Michael Piper represents a brood­ ing intensity reminiscent of the golden age but equally relevant in today’s modern society.

I love art because it does not have any borders and it speaks to all. A fascination with geometric shapes and color has always been at the core of my work. Gradi­ ent coloring and manipulating shapes is ever­present throughout my portfolio. Cubism and Italian Futurism are genres that inspire my work. A hybrid form of Fu­ turistic­Cubism comes out in my paintings. It creates a unique dynamic. I paint when I feel inspired, that is why each of my paintings have spots of good and bad feeling. My paintings transform a lot during the pro­ cess.

A masterpiece is called a masterpiece not only because of its outstanding creativity, skill or workmanship, but also the aesthetic, artistic conception and the mood of the painting. All artists should use their own unique artistic language to express themselves, infuse their spirit, soul into their works.

Lynda Manson Canada

www.lyndamanson.com lmansonart@gmail.com

For me, to paint is not a choice but an obsession. I am endlessly fascinated with the possibilities for creating an image by simply using brushes, little piles of paint and an empty canvas. Whether it is the play of light and shadow, interesting textures or forms or intriguing color combinations, if it stirs an emotional response I am compelled to paint. Nature themes such as skyscapes, landscapes and seascapes dominate my paintings as I search to share calm, peace and beauty as well as organic color palettes, shapes and patterns with my free flowing painting style. Portraiture is also becoming a large part of my portfolio, especially pets.

As an artist, I try to convey photorealistic qualities of a subject and showcase in a large scale artwork, the typically missed details. In my work, I often use gilding techniques as the radiance of the gold immediately draws a person’s attention to those areas. Being able to see people walk up close to the drawing for a better view of the details is truly something I hope to continue.

Anxiety (Oil on canvas)

I’ve been interested in any form of art since I was little. As the years passed I’ve taught myself to paint. I couldn’t resist the urge to create. Not so long ago I managed to sell one of my paintings; this boosted my confidence, so I kept on painting, to follow my dream. I prefer to work with oil. Expressionism, realism and abstract­styled paintings are the closest to me, and I choose these styles to express my feelings, and to communicate my emotions to the world.

Because I live through the visual world I can say things through colors and shapes that I have no words for. When I am painting time stands still and a tranquility and fascination envelop my mind unlike any other experience on the plan足 et. It is truly being in the moment and creat足 ing history simultaneously. This feeling is what I would define as true happiness. My thoughts on painting are that one should paint what they live to paint without rules and boundaries. The creative process is a never ending source of self expression, happiness, and connecting the ideal with reality! Tamera sun (Oil on masonite)

Alexey Klimov

I think that absolute freedom in art is no more than a mirage. Like a vanishing point, not only it is not achiev­ able, but also constant strive for being totally uninhi­ bited fundamentally contradicts the very nature of art. I discovered that by trying to free myself I instead only created un­freedom within, but at the same time I re­ cognized it as a blessing because this un­freedom, to my great surprise, flowered into my very own freedom.

I built my personal space inside it, I fenced in all I was made of and then I gladly confined myself into this space and opened all the windows to share what’s inside with others. This is the mo­ ment of great joy for me because this space has never existed before I have created it. Not unlike theater, my work attempts to counterpart outside reality with no ambition to compete with it. It is just a window into my parallel world, my very own, not so little Universe.

“I love to paint as realistic as I can with a hint of Impressionism. My subjects include landscapes, wildlife and still life. Portraying art is my pas­ sion. I try to paint what I see as often as pos­ sible. Nature has chaos, storms, etc.. I try my best to look beyond the chaos that flooding and other natural disasters can cause. I try to cap­ ture the beauty that lies within. There is some­ thing about touching and feeling the texture of my subjects that connects me while I’m creating. Making something look like something is only half the challenge, capturing the essence of a feeling is the true art.”

Joseph Moon

United States of America www.josephmoongallery.com josephmoongallery@gmail.com

The work of Joseph Moon runs the gamut of artistic styles and mediums. Each piece coming from a different place, mentally, dictating the approach on how his vision is to be portrayed. With the vision that “Art allows us to reach through the mirror and explore the corridors on the other side” his opinion is that “Without art, we would have a much cloudier view of what we try so hard to see”.

The inspiration for creating my sculpture grew from a life足 time love of trees. I am in awe of the stately presence and silent majesty they posses. I find the structure of trees to be one of the perfections in nature. With their roots embracing the earth; in winter they show their bones, in spring gentle buds, in summer a canopy of green and in fall a magical ka足 leidoscope of colors. Beauty, pure beauty.

I believe art heals. A holistic therapist and artist, I developed my unique technique and style as “Healing Arts”­ a powerful form of self­expression that can enhance healing to those in need, and become a vehicle for emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well­being.

Autumn Leaves (Acrylic, Mixed Media/Heavy Texture, canvas)


Coming from a family of scientists, I’ve always been fascinated by the left and right brain relationship which led me to study many things – from mathematics and science to psychology, therapy and healing to fine art, and finally create my “Healing Arts”. I am bringing together Fine Art, the Art of Healing, and Expressive Arts by integrating healing frequencies of color, positively charged intention, embedded spiritual messages, and energetically ba­ lanced composition. My pasionate art is better experienced “in­person” due to live vibrations of bright colors, heavy textures, usually large size, and just an overall charisma and high energy.

I often create my new artwork using a fusion of traditional and high足tech methods. My pho足 tographs or/and watercolour paintings often become a basis for my final work, which is now quite often only a single or just several digital prints, even though I do up to 20 limited prints.

Also, I have created my prints into a mixed足 media, as sometimes I used pastel, airbrush to acrylic paint to make them, even more, unique. No two look the same, doing this on a couple only. By computer manipula足 tion, the art has been enhanced to be al足 tered quite dramatically from what I used as my inspirational initial image input into the computer. My art has been noted as being bold and colourful with less detail, thus more shapes and also having some unique textural qualities.

Julie Robitaille is a published novelist and award winning self­taught artist who works in oils, acrylics and mixed media. Color and symbology play major roles in her work and highlight a lifelong interest in psychology and be­ havior. This series of paintings expo­ ses the contrast between reality and illusion, exploring how the secrets hidden beneath the public face can make themselves evident on the sur­ face – even when the subject thinks he or she is wear­ ing an impenetrable mask of normalcy. With a keen eye for revealing the “tells” that give away peo­ ple’s secrets, she creates portraits that are sometimes disturbing and so­ metimes funny, but always intriguing.

María’s art captures the essence of life in an ab­ stract yet vibrant and engaging way, carrying her deepest feelings and emotions, but still trans­ mitting peace and har­ mony. As to her technique, she works with multiple materials to create dif­ ferent types of textures and unique colors without a brush. Indeed, all her work, from fully abstract to very detailed and figu­ rative pieces are done by using only a palette knife. Today María de la Luz has her own studio where she continues creating mag­ nificent pieces of art. 159

The artist embroiders the most beautiful dress of contemporary art. She embroiders it through the beauty of form and harmony of the colors.

Ricky Schembri Australia

For me painting is something to look forward to. I especially love plein air painting. There is nothing better than going out to paint on a nice day. By the time my easel is set up everything comes to life. You can hear the leaves rustling in the trees, you can hear insects and birds, and my intense focus on the subject I am trying to portray seems to amplify the beau足 ty of my surroundings even more. I mostly paint landscapes and farm scenes. Putting cattle or sheep into a landscape brings a painting to life. My ambition is to travel and paint. First Australia and then the world. I love to paint!

With a feeling for contrasts, he transforms daily themes into bold and different but pleasantly ac足 cessible images. Colorful, with obvious Latin American influences. With a lack of respect for the aca足 demic straightjacket of perspective. Briels is a sculptor and painter. He creates glass sculptures and designs furniture, and his signature is and will always be a cheerful and optimistic outlook on life.

Art investigation is con足 stant; the Figurative style gradually gives way to the Abstract up to the Informal, beloved and suit足 able soil. The intimate research of the abstract form and the reinterpretation of the color are her hallmarks. Dubus I (Oil and sand on canvas)

The artwork I produce is inspired by my relation­ ship and experiences with nature and my desire to share how I perceive the essence of the natural world. Some of my current work is created with both tra­ ditional and digital media. I label these pieces “mixed media” and list the media in the order of its use in the creation of the artwork. Most often traditional media is used in 90% to 95% of the artwork’s creation.

Art has always been my outlet for expression, however, family and work and other things precluded my spending a great deal of time painting, but I will keep trying. Impressionist landscapes, seascapes emotive of places I love, to share with you.
