Mary was born and raised in southern New Mexico. Growing up in this land of many contrasts helped her to develop an appreciation and awareness of light and color. She graduated with a BFA in Interior Design from the University of North Texas and worked as a commercial designer for 20 years before becoming a full time artist.

Watercolor was the medium of choice for her initial artistic expression. Watercolor is appealing to Mary because of its spontaneity, luminosity and for the richness of color that can be achieved. She paints a variety of subject matter with some of her favorite subjects being prickly pear cactus, wildflowers and old vehicles.

Vie Dunn-Harr, Painter. Born in San Antonio, Texas (USA) in 1953. Dunn-Harr found her artistic expression slowly, yet deliberately, and continues to explore the many possibilities in the arts. She studied in Florence, Italy at the Lorenzo de Medici Instituto de Arte and at the Toblach-Dobbiaco Academia Italia. She derived much of her early experience from the traditional school and continues to embrace formalism. Her works are organic forms rooted in architectural elements. The forms are sensuous and portray the force and fragility of nature. Dunn-Harr considers herself a contemporary painter and has exhibited in the USA, Europe and Mexico.

  Myra Knapp

Myra has been a professional artist for more than 25 years. Art study at the university level, a two-year art study program while living in Europe and study with America’s leading contemporary impressionists, have all served to make Myra’s oil paintings reflect the richness of the land and sky.

Being a prolific painter, Myra paints both in the studio and plein air. Myra has won international recognition with her oil landscapes and is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society and the Outdoor Painters Society.

Gaye Sekula
   

Gaye finds great inspiration in trying to capture the wonder of the fleeting moment and finds the most joy in painting “alla prima”. It is her belief that emotion and liveliness are best captured in "the simplicity of spontaneity".

She has studied under such masters as Carolyn Anderson, Albert Handell, Henry Yan, Jeffrey Watts and Zhaoming Wu. She has also been greatly influenced by Robert Liberace, Tibor Nagy, and Nicolai Fechin.
