FAA Member Artists




James Eli Bowden

Acrylic on PVC

My paintings represent themselves, rather than being representational. Forms are subconsciously assimilated from the world of things and sometimes an earlier painting. These sources are intuitively assimilated with concern to develop a visual space with tension between the shapes and the colors.

Christina Cooley


For me, painting is an exploratory and intuitive process. I work in many layers of paint, adding, playing, and adjusting until the piece is complete. The result is a colorful, evocative abstraction.

Vicki Frasco


Self-taught. Inspired by nature and the great outdoors. Medium used is acrylic on canvas for a majority of my work.

Greg Loudon



Alcohol Ink


Mysi Carroll

Alcohol Ink, Photography, Jewelry

My art is usually a product of applying ink to a surface and moving it around until I see something. I then remove ink to bring out my subject, and then add details. I’m also inspired by watercolor landscapes, but with ink the outcome is more vivid, sometimes borderline psychedelic.



Nic Eckmayer


I create functional and sculptural ceramic artworks. I work primarily on the potters wheel. I'm inspired by music to make unique pieces that emphasize organic form, striking color, and tactile texture.

Richard Perna


Functional wheel thrown and hand-built stoneware pottery and non-functional raku-fired vessels.



A Vanessa White Mottley

Oils, Acrylics, Charcoal, Pastels

I create art as an expression of emotions. I draw intuitively, usually being inspired by scenes from everyday life. I enjoy incorporating a bit of whimsy in my work. Once I lay my foundation, I’m open to where the muse leads.

Colored Pencil

Susan Kay Henke

Watercolor, Pencil and Ink, Acrylic, Decoupage

I use multimedia to express efforts to capture beauty and images of my environment. My style is often watercolor and then reconstructing the artwork adding ink detail.

Janice F Meister

Mixed Media, Printmaking

All of my artwork is inspired by a love of nature and organic forms which has long been the center of my art work. I focus beyond a visual description and allow myself to explore elements related to defining the subject. A passion for drawing, collage, printmaking and mixed media construction lies in the endless variety of techniques available to manipulate materials and express ideas. Varied subjects may be handled with traditional techniques and alternative approaches.

Painting allows me to observe nature with a more holistic experience, observing and discovering various details of my subjects, and then translating them into colors and textures to create something beautiful and soulful.



Mary Ann Trzyna

Pastel, Oil Painting

I create landscape and still life paintings in soft pastel and oils.



Peter Bosy


I'm attracted by how lighting affects the color, shape, and texture in objects as well as with portraiture. What I search for is the art of balance, of purity and beauty - a soothing calming influence on the mind. Beginning my career as a fine artist I use these skills in my photography business with clients in need of my vision.

Jenna Davis

Acrylic, Oil, Mixed Media, Photography

I am an artist and photographer that has been creating for as long as I can remember. My favorite thing to shoot is portraits. I love incorporating topics that need to be talked about into my art, such as mental health and my own personal journey to self-love.

Maggie Gonzalez


I shoot portraits and events. My inspiration comes from music, fashion, and the world around me.

John Voris

Photography, Mixed Media, Graphite Drawing, Colored Pencil

Edgar Degas said, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." We all see things in our own unique way and creating art is a beautiful way to give people the opportunity to see something new and inspiring.

Reg Ziemann

At the present time, I integrate visual imagery into digital media. Developing an idea from research, through the exploration of media, through problem-solving and decision making to presentation.

Whether my painting is a watercolor or an acrylic, realistic or abstract it will always be bright colors and hopefully "take you somewhere," as it does me.
