Lana Nguyen Rubin

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Kiev, Ukraine. I currently live in United States, and will stay until my adventure takes me elsewhere. I thoroughly enjoy working as an interior designer and an artist at the same time because I believe these two fields blend together and one can't exist without one another. I am always inspired by nature and my surrounding environment and incorporate these aspects into my work.  

Drita Harris

I have created art all my life in one medium or another. It’s important for me to not only create, but to continuously evolve and creatively express my feelings through my art. Whether I'm working in my studio painting, or creating with glass, my art is a piece of me that I put out to the world. My large abstract paintings are an emotion of music, life, and color. My abstracts in glass are a flow of colors that captures the movement of glass. 

JD Morera

Born in Madrid, Spain, JD came to art at an early age nurtured by a rigorous education under the tutelage of Catholic nuns. He came to the US to study art. After receiving a bachelor's degree in art JD opened a studio where he specialized in large-format abstract paintings developed in collaboration with architects and designers such as Pepe Cabrera, Bruno Raymond and Michael Keller in the US. JD describes his early artistic life as nomadic, having exhibited extensively in Italy, Spain, France and Mexico and in various galleries in CA, NM, TX and FL, where his paintings are found in numerous private and commercial collections.

Rodney Pray

As a child of parents who were artists, I was blessed from a young age to be exposed to art in many of its forms. I credit my childhood to where I developed my own love and appreciation of art and to the artists who bring their visions forth. My inspirations have been primarily rooted in modern and abstract art with a love for color and fluidity. I have worked with a variety of mediums including charcoal, acrylics, and art resin of which I am self-taught in each. Working with resin has allowed me to expand on my creativity adding a depth and vibrancy that traditionally I would be unable to attain through traditional methods.
