Traditional ArtDiane Farquhar
Diane Farquhar lives on a small farm near Eugene, Oregon. Her home environs as well as the landscapes and experiences that she encounters during travel in the U.S. and abroad provide her with a wealth of inspiration. Her art interests are primarily experimental, abstract and abstract realism.
Diane paints in acrylic, oil and watercolor, experimenting with the full array of paints, mediums, techniques and tools available to contemporary artists. She loves to explore the elements of color, form, linear quality, light and abstraction with the goal of adding drama, depth, texture, and a sense of movement to the images she creates. She is often pleasantly surprised when her explorations reveal a hidden treasure.

Digital Art & PhotographyKathleen Greenwood
Kathleen Greenwood’s digital art represents her interpretation of conventional & non-conventional subjects and can be reality or fantasy based. Her workflow is not necessarily traditional or structured the same way for each design but each piece starts with a base subject, then moves to the manipulation of textures, lighting or color and ends with post processing. Kathleen's current body of work includes florals, landscapes, fantasy, abstract designs and portraits.
Kathleen started her art journey in mixed media after attending a Julia Cameron workshop. She is self taught, attends local and out of state workshops in different mediums & is currently actively enrolled in many of Sebastian Michael's online digital courses. She has exhibited in professional juried exhibits & fine art shows. Kathleen was recently published in the Living the Photo Artistic Life Magazine & the GSP online magazine in collaboration with Gabriel Olude international photographer. Although her major interest at this time is digital art, she continues to stay involved with traditional art and will be focusing on combining digital & traditional art in some form. Art for Kathleen has been a meandering path full of surprises and unpredictable outcomes!
