Heiner, Joe & Kathy

In 1964 Kathryn (Kathy) Hughes sat next to me (Joe Heiner) in our sixth grade classroom at Ensign Elementary school in Salt Lake City, Utah. While quietly sitting at her desk, Kathy was struck by a ruler hurled at me (I ducked) by our teacher, Mr. Anderson. We became close friends. After the eighth grade, my family moved to Montreal, P.Q. Canada. It was a long time till I saw Kathy again. Kathy's family stayed in Salt Lake City where Kathy later attended East High School. Kathy married, moved to San Francisco and had one son, Michael. After returning to Salt Lake City, Kathy graduated Cum Laude from University of Utah with a BS degree in Social Sciences. She taught nursery school for two years, became a single parent and a secretary for Architects and Planners in Salt Lake City. I attended Beaconsfield High School near Montreal, studied art and photography at Brigham Young University, and Art Center College of Design, married and had two children. I assisted commercial photographers Ed Goldstien and Carl Furuta. I also assisted David Willardson, illustrator, shooting detailed 4X5 photo reference for his airbrush illustrations. Willardson taught me airbrush techniques and helped develop an airbrush / photographic illustration style. My first portfolio of ten photo / illustrations quickly generated assignments from movie studios, advertising agencies, magazines and recording companies. With the help of the same great reps who represented Willardson, assignments came from across the country. This afforded a move back to Utah. Work went well from Utah and I became a single parent. Fifteen years after sitting by Kathy in sixth grade, she married me. We now have five children (combined) and work together in our studio in Alpine, Utah. Our studio continues to create realistic photo / illustration for clients across the country. Kathy is studio manager and stylist. I am photographer / computer illustrator. Early works were a combination of airbrush and silk screen on photographic prints. Current work is digital, a merging of digital photography and computer illustration. We have received numerous awards including The One Show Gold Award and our work is represented in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art. Clients include: Lucasfilm, Salisbury Communications, ABC records, Y&R, Foote Cone & Belding, Satchi & Satchi, Merck, McDonalds and Coca Cola. I hope you enjoy our work.

Beauregard, Christiane

Christiane Beauregard seems to possess limitless capacity to bring virtual images to life. From delicate emotions to complex technological data.. Christiane is always striving to express her passions through her digital art. Her beginnings in the design department of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation were important in her artistic evolution. At the outset of the 90's she discovered computers and a certain affinity with vectors. Seduced by these voluptuous curves she adopted this as her principal mode of expression. She also took an interest in animation which let her explore the intersection of traditional and new technology. When she is not drawing she participates in exhibitions or she pursues workshops in theater and dance which are for her a real source of inspiration and creative motivation. www.christianebeauregard.com

Tran, Turine

Vietnamese artist Turine Tran’s imaginative children’s illustrations were inspired by some of the Victorian greats like Arthur Rackham, yet she’s established her own unique style which is charming, elegant and popular with clients who like her nostaligic, painterly approach.

Turine grew up in a house full of books that she could escape into as a child. She was taught to draw by her father. Ho Chi Minh City is a hot, busy and crowded place, but Turine prefers the countryside – particularly when the weather is dark and gloomy. In addition to her art, she does a lot of crafting, from beads to sewing and from knitting to cooking.

Turine studied design in Vietnam, before going to the School of Art, Design and Media in Singapore. She moved to Edinburgh to study for a Masters in Illustration, and later returned to Vietnam.

Images usually start off as rough pencil sketches in Turine’s notebooks as she tries to establish the forms and the composition. Detail and shading are added and then the pencil image is scanned in so that she can add colour in Photoshop. She has designed her own custom brushes within the application.

Turine’s style is intentionally nostalgic. She wants viewers to reminisce when they see her work – as though it’s just been discovered in a dusty old attic. Her Victorian-inspired illustrations are full of whimsical lines and forms, given life by paper textures. Meanwhile, she enjoys creating children’s characters that aren’t just cute and cuddly, but which are vulnerable and unpredictable, and don’t behave in ways that adult viewers expect them to.

Coyle, Laura

Laura Coyle creates distinctive art with wide appeal. Her clients include major brands like Target, Amazon.com, Disney and publications including Better Homes and Gardens and The Wall Street Journal.

Laura made her first foray into product design with Hasbro. She was called upon to refresh the classic Parcheesi board game, a design that had remained unchanged since the early 1900's. The challenge was to create illustrations that would highlight the game's origins in India and enhance its appeal to kids today. In working on Parcheesi, she discovered a love for designing products that can connect with people every day.

Since then, Laura's gift bag, wrap and paper ware designs have appeared on the shelves at Target, Papyrus and Hallmark.

Laura grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and earned her BFA from Auburn University. She started her freelance career living in the East Village in New York City, dropping her portfolios off with art directors while working part time as an assistant to renowned jazz photographer Jimmy Katz. Laura now lives back in her hometown with her husband Clayton, an architect, in their 1950's ranch house which they renovated together.

After graduating with a BFA from Kutztown University in '76, she eventually figured out that she was meant to be an illustrator. Her love of animals, sense of humor, whimsy, and a penchant for storytelling all came together and in one quick moment she realized, "THIS IS IT...this is what I'm supposed to be doing". And so, she sits at her desk every day, living in a fantasy world and watching little anthropomorphic animals come to life...and...life is good.
