Charlotte Sveen - Freezing moments in time

I love photography! The ability to freeze a moment in time, capture the unusual, or provoke a feeling in the viewer. Something to give one pause when they view it. I like the way photos can tell a story, inviting us to be in the moment.

I’m a member of the Redlands Camera Club in Redlands, CA and have won several awards in their competitions. I am a past member of the Redlands Art Association and present member of the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts.

In 2016 I was published in Nevada magazine as a Publisher’s Pick in their annual photo contest.

I hope you enjoy my work.

A portion of my sales of the Mustang photos benefits the Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund in Reno, NV.

Roy Chang - Beauty can be everywhere

Beauty can be everywhere. 

My joy, inspiration and goal is to share these portals into beauty through photograph.

Past, present and future flowing as one.

 

Roy was born in South Korea and his family immigrated to the United States in the early 70's. He "grew up" in the Arlington Heights district of Los Angeles and in subsequent years moved on to Temple City, San Luis Obispo, Arcadia, Pasadena and has settled in Monrovia, for now. Roy's inspiration comes from the words of Joseph Campbell, "Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls."

Eric Watkins - Illustrator

Eric, an artist for the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts, has displayed his work of pencil renderings at local art shows throughout the community. Inspired by God, he’s passionate about his work, which brings him joy that others can be amazed and inspired by what he does.

With these images he sets before you, he wants you to see how simple the process of formulating, shading and texturing with just the use of a pencil, can capture and bring an image to life.

Just recently, he decided to add color using colored pencils, pen and ink, creating a dimensional effect to his work.

As quoted by Horace “a picture is a poem without words.” Nothing more needs to be said.

Artist, Anko Chang presents "Second Nature"

As an active artist in L.A. and Taiwan, Anko wants to remix Chinese and Western art through concepts or materials.

 

 

Paint has never left Chang's fingers since the age of 4. It stayed to help her communicate what she wants others to see. Chang's artworks often represent her journey to self-discovery as a Taiwanese with an exclusively Western education. Despite growing up in the countryside of Taiwan, Chang studied in an American School located in Kaohsiung, and then UCLA (where both schools use Western curriculum). Unable to fit into true “Chinese” traditions, she lived in a constant state of contradiction.

 

Using 3 years to graduate UCLA, Chang was on a mission to start her life as an artist as soon as she can. As an active artist in Los Angeles and Taiwan, she discovered her lack of artistic education and influences by the Eastern hemisphere. Therefore, she became interested in cross-breeding and remixing Chinese tradition into Western art through Eastern concepts or materials. For example, in her work After the Storm, feng shui and Chinese ink painting style is remixed with western painting media and the style of Impressionism.

 

Furthermore, inspired by her surroundings, she expanded into social or political entities that delves into the ties between genders and taboos.

Chang wants to change vulgar concepts into something beautiful, because Art Changes the World.
