Working primarily in graphite, I strive to capture the nature of fabrics as well as the mood of my subject. A spark in the eye, a burst of motion, or quiet reflection taking the subject beyond a photograph, rich in texture and feeling. From portraiture to fashion, my work tells a story. The viewer should be curious, hopefully drawn in, to complete it on their own.

I have attended Minneapolis College of Art & Design, classes in digital graphics, University of Minnesota, drawing & painting and have earned an Associate Arts Degree in commercial art from Minneapolis Technical College. My interest in fashion and clothing construction has led to employment as a costumer for Guthrie Theater, Minnesota Dance Theatre, Minnesota Opera and Children’s Theatre Company.

Exhibits of my work have been held in Minneapolis at Geometrie Gallery and The Loring Cafe & Bar and in Venice, California at Sponto Gallery.

I have been represented by Ann Koeffler Artist Representation for the past 15 years. Since she has recently retired I am seeking new representation.

Hargreaves, Martin

History and humor marry together beautifully in the illustrations of Martin Hargreaves, and his versatile style has seen him creating everything from pastiche images mimicking the great masters to fantastical beasts and still life paintings. You’ll find his work in advertising, children’s books, magazines and newspapers, and even at Hampton Court Palace.

It’s no surprise to learn that Martin’s greatest inspiration comes from classical painters like William Hogarth, Hans Holbein, Rembrandt and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. In fact, he says that if he could travel back in time he would visit the 18th century, and alongside his love of Renaissance artwork he also loves classical music.

Martin works from a shed in his garden, with large windows through which he can see apple trees and the rolling hills of East Sussex. If he ever gets creative block, he likes to dig in his vegetable garden, or look after his many pets, which include two dogs, three horses, two guinea pigs and seven chickens.

Martin has a BA Illustration from Brighton Polytechnic (now Brighton University).

His approach and the media he uses vary from project to project, but he always begins drawing with a simple pen on paper until he has an idea of what direction the image will take. Martin works in traditional media – oil paints, watercolor, pen and ink – and is also adept at making changes digitally as required. The 2B pencil is his all-time favorite art tool.

Martin’s inspiration comes from the old masters, and the styles he works in follow on from that. In his portfolio you’ll see fine paintings that look just like Rembrandts, and others that are more like 18th century engravings or 19th century book illustrations. In short, he will come up with a style that suits the brief.

Pintor, David

David Pintor was born in a seaside windy city named A Coruña, in the northwest of Spain. He began his career as a cartoonist in the 90′s. In 2007, he was featured in the illustrator’s exhibition at Bologna book fair, and since that time, he has collaborated with publishers all over the world. His caricatures and the simplicity of his drawings, his lines and colour choices make for a fun and elegant style. He has been awarded by SND, selected in Bratislava biennial, and selected by White Ravens list. He primarily works in Spain, but likes very much travelling all over the world with his moleskine and some pens. All of his travels appear in his drawings. He loves New York, Venezia, Paris, Sidney, Barcelona, London… He has a studio, but sometimes he likes to work in a coffee shop with soft music, nice views and a very hot coffee on the table.

Huliska-Beith, Laura

Laura Huliska- Beith is a graduate of the Kansas City Art Institute.

Most recently illustrated books are The Wild, Wild Inside (March 2010) by Kate Feiffer and The Adventures of Granny Clearwater and Little Critter (October 2010) by Kimberly Willis Holt.

Gu, Sunny

Based in sunny Los Angeles, Sunny Gu is an artist who’s curious about culture. She loves to look for beauty in everything around her and then recreate it in her art. It certainly shows through in her work, which is full of colour, glamour, fashion and ornamentation.

Sunny was born in China but emigrated to the US when she was 13. She’s loved drawing for as long as she can remember. Her nickname is ‘Bee’ because she’s obsessed with flowers and if you look inside her wardrobe you’ll be overwhelmed by the colourful floral prints and patterns inside. She has plenty of accessories to go with the garments - again, they form important elements in her illustration work.

Her overall aim is to preserve the beauty she sees around her.

Sunny studied illustration at the Otis College of Art and Design in LA, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.

Each illustration begins with a series of rough sketches, which Sunny uses to develop the composition. Once she’s decided on the composition, she works on the details and then starts painting. Her favourite medium is watercolour – she loves their vibrant and unpredictable nature. Occasionally, she uses graphite or acrylic paints for some of the textures. Sunny will use a computer to create surface designs and textile patterns.

When she’s painting, Sunny says she’s bathed in happiness and she puts that across in bright colour and rich detail. The focus on beauty and feeling is clear in her work and she wants to bring joy to whoever looks at it.

Rébora, Cecilia

Born in Guadalajara, Mexico, Cecilia Rebora belongs to a creative family of painters, a sculptor, and a wood carver. As long as she can remember, Cecilia could be found with a crayon in her hand.

She studied for three years at the Josep Serra I Abella School of Fine Arts in Barcelona. It was there that she truly fell in love with the profession. She has since published 18 children’s books and contributes to a popular children’s magazine called Tareas E Ilustraciones. She and her husband, Luis, have welcomed a new edition to their family named Mateo, a delightful boy who sleeps most of the time. When not illustrating, she enjoys sipping a hot cappuccino and taking in the sun on a chilly morning. Cecilia’s goals are to continue illustrating for a very long time and to always see the smile on her son’s face.

Vernon, Katie

Katie Vernon is an illustrator who has spent most of her life in the midwest but whose heart belongs in the mountains.

Katie is also rather fond of her partner, daughter, and part-dingo dog. In 2015 Katie won the Special Studio Award in Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search competition.

Johnson, Kim

Kim Johnson studied at the Corcoran School of Art before beginning a career as a graphic designer. After designing one corporate brochure too many, she thought it would be more fun to be an animator, which was indeed the case. She subsequently moved on to designing and directing animation for television commercials and program openings, such as "The Nanny" and "The Rosy O'Donnell Show". This was even more fun than animating had been, as she was now able to boss around numerous talented persons. She currently lives in suburban Connecticut, with her family, including two daughters who boss her around mercilessly. Poetic justice? Perhaps. Her illustrative style today reflects her roots in animation, and includes her own animated work..

Nitta, Kazu

Kazushige Nitta graduated from Dokkyo University with a B.A. in economics in 1987 before coming to the United States and enrolling at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. In the same year, he won two prestigious awards presented by The New York Society of Illustrators Scholarship Competition, and The Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.

Glass, Randy

Originally from Kansas City, Randy became the youngest illustrator Hallmark Cards had ever hired — while still a junior in high school. He attended Ringling School of Art and Art Center College of Design, supplementing his tuition by drawing five-minute portraits of people at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World ... a surprisingly valuable education in discipline and patience. Randy began freelancing as an illustrator in the mid-’80s, quickly establishing a strong reputation for highly detailed representational drawing and painting. Although adept at working in color, he gravitated toward and has always preferred a simple black and white palette. He is a master of the graphic technique known as “stipple” — the process of marking a surface with numerous small dots to create an image. It’s a style favored by print media, where paper quality can adversely affect the reproduction of an image, and by its very nature, it’s ideal for Web usage. Perhaps best known commercially as a portrait artist, Randy has an exceptional aptitude for capturing his subject’s character and essence with carefully nuanced precision. This, combined with his stippling expertise, made him a perfect match for the Wall Street Journal’s iconic portraits known as “hedcuts”; he’s created several hundred of them since 1998. Over the years, Randy has received recognition by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Communication Arts, The Art Director’s Club, and Illustration West. Randy currently lives in Southern California. Black & White Illustration. Pen and Ink (line & Stipple), Watercolor, Pencil. Portraiture.
