Miranda Blas Art creates unique sculptural and functional ceramics.
I make iridescent, metallic, raku fired vases and planters as well as luscious cone 6 mugs and other functional pieces. Plein air oil painting is another medium I work in. My work was recently featured in the June issue of the Philadelphia Magazine.
Jeleata Nicole, a Philadelphia native, where art is a common subject.
My love for creating art began as a child and I have been obsessively honoring my skills ever since. Capturing the emotion, having the feeling that you can attach a story with my subjects has always been key. Portraiture fills me with a sense of contentment and gives me a way to express my inner vision. I am a professional self-taught artist specializing in realistic graphite, colored pencil, and oil paintings. I love working in all mediums, to express my interpretation of my subjects. To be able to take a blank canvas and transfer it to a captivating piece, is an amazing process. As an artist, it gives me great satisfaction knowing I can create something for someone to cherish for a lifetime. ~Jeleata Nicole
The urban life contrasted by its immediate suburbs has become a familiar, comfortable, and inspiring setting upon which Steven Martin feel compelled to share in his paintings. Steven seeks out striking expressions within nature as well as the man-made; contrasts of light, color, and space, the clashing of the stark and rigid against the soft and inevitable which make for great subjects. The suspension of pigment in oil is just the perfect medium for him to express his creativity through.
It’s various qualities of drying, layering, mixing, and movement perform to compliment my process and aesthetic. Additional tools may strengthen a concept in its mark making, denying the paints smooth, luscious characteristic. ~Steven Martin

As a watercolor artist living in Ambler, John Westcott’s passion is painting, drawing and photographing old buildings and streetscapes in small towns and urban areas. He has always been fascinated by old buildings; the things they have seen and the stories they could tell.
I paint old buildings because they are interesting subjects, but also because it gives me a sense of preserving them in some small way. In today’s disposable society, I feel almost a sense of urgency, or even a sense of responsibility, to paint as many old buildings as I can before they are gone forever. My painting style is watercolor realism with an emphasis on light, shadow and color. ~John Westcott
Christina Leone is a Montgomery County based painter who grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia in Abington, PA. She specializes in landscape paintings and pet portraiture.
In the beginning of her college years, she studied at Montgomery County Community College for the first two years and then transferred to the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where she is working for her BFA in painting. She has exhibited in group shows at both schools as a start to her career as a fine artist.
I live and paint in Abington, Pennsylvania. The views of what I see when I walk out the door has always been what drives me to create. I want to paint the day that the scene existed in and log it as a memory. My work is a compilation of journaled overlooked moments in our environment and everyday life. I call my paintings “journal entries;” their titles are the month, day, and time of when the scene is remembered. I look for the quiet moments in life that are underappreciated such as a shadow casting on the ground or a formation of stones. I strive to enhance the color, light, and space of the scene with an inventive aspect added to my environments. My work addresses a variety of compositions from the more traditional to the more abstract way of thinking. I zero-in on atypical simple moments like the slight off-color of the sky or the formulation of branches and how the sky peeks through in such an intricate way. It is more about the paint rather than just painstakingly copying every leaf or blade of grass. We have technology to take perfectly depicted photographs but I strive to create a version of that image to express a feeling of its energy, which is my way of appreciating nature.
