“Finding Inspiration“

This is my Motto: 

This is what drives me. I have a constant hunger to venture out, battling the elements and waiting patiently to capture these special moments. I do this so that I may inspire people to go out, go see this beautiful of ours.

Bio –  I have lived in Las Vegas all my life, however, it wasn’t until 2012 that I really discovered my passion for photography. I grew up loving to draw and I always had a sketch pad nearby. I had always wanted to be an animator or computer animator for movies. In 2012, I had a very tough year personally and professionally. My grandmother, my best friend growing up, passed away and it was difficult to lose such an inspiration in my life. My work passed me over for a promotion that I had worked so hard for and gave it to someone that had very little experience. Yet, out of this and some other hardships that year, I re found my interest in photography. I bought my first DSLR and I never looked back! By the next year I was using more professional gear, doing portraits and some weddings. But my love of landscape photography is what really kept and still keeps me going every day. I love being out in nature, seeing fleeting moments in time and capturing those moments. This is what drives me to wake up hours before the sunrise, sacrifice sleep and drive for miles to see something that most people are missing in life. So now I travel all over the American southwest and other places to see this beautiful world that we live in and try to photograph it, the way I see it.

December Featured Artist Faye Tracy

Artist Statement – Faye Tracy

I started painting at a very young age, it is embedded in my whole life. I only paint in Oils, they give me freedom and I can manipulate them with ease. I find inspiration in children, animals, and the memories of America’s past. My hope is that a person finds as much joy in my paintings when they see them, as I do creating them.

September Featured Artist: Bryan Bolosan

Featured Artist Bryan Bolosan

Artist Statement

Perception versus reality. These are life’s principle questions that I seek to explore and answer in my art. Capturing a fleeting thought and or inner emotion and painting them on canvas for the viewer to step-back, reflect, and find within themselves either the answers to their own questions or to stir an emotion they have yet to discover. As an artist, I work in many mediums, from watercolors to oils, but its acrylic with its bright colors and subtle hues that allows me to achieve the emotion I seek to express. Using only three to four colors at a time, I am able to alter the hues to create greater ranges of depth and dimension. The result is a quiet and impactful rhythm that ranges from a gentle heartbeat to a powerful thunderstorm. Accompany me on my journey of exploring life’s mysteries and conflicts and perhaps together we’ll find the answers all seek.
