Drawing by Kirilka Tzanova
I started painting in my 60s. One nightly family decided to go to a Paint Bar for fun and I was automatically hooked. The next day I went to a an art store and bought my first set of paint brushes. I also have two grandchildren who have a love for art just like me. Often we spend our time together finger painting, exploring colors, and getting messy.

Drawing by Sameeha Khaliq
I was a born artist and always wanted to go to an art school for a strong foundation but somehow I couldn’t get in there. But my passion for art couldn’t stop me at any point and brought me face-to-face with art while leaving my job and all mundane concerns behind.
Drawing by Lidia Mikhaylova
Born and raised in Russia, Siberia, I’ve spent most of my life working in the corporate world as a lawyer. After more than 15 years of a successful career in Moscow, I moved to Riga, Latvia in a search of new ways to fulfill my dreams. That’s where I became inspired by the colorful imagery of my surroundings, and finally and completely fell in love with painting.
Story and painting from Reynold R. Rossi
Art has always been important in my life since an early age. Always drawing, and admiring art works by other artists. Now that I’m much older It gives me great pleasure to draw, and paint. One of my challenges is dry spells when you lose your mojo? I would like to learn how to command a technique in using oil paints, and also pastels.
Artistique Life of Mark Pol
I was born in The Hague. Now I live in Amsterdam.
I had no artistic influence. My parents were poor and could not pay a formal academic study in the Arts. At that time I knew nothing about art. I have just my own fantasy. I am a dreamer who never wants to wake up, but I did when I grew up.
Story and artwork from Raphael Grullon
I am a fine artist painting in oils and watercolors. This mediums fascinate me because the easy consistency of the colors. I love to paint landscapes which is a very powerful inspiration to see and feel the beauty of god and nature specially the trees, leaves and water on a lake or river.
