Juli Janovicz paints the colors and the landscape as they feel. When she starts to paint Juli has a color in her head and though she has no idea where a painting will go, she always knows when a painting is finished. Juli captured the essence of the colors embedded in moments and the feeling evoked by those colors.
There is poetry in every painting. Artists attempt to capture the essence between what is seen and what can’t be explained. That every viewer interprets paintings differently continues to be one of the inexplicable mysteries of art.
Juli arrived at painting from other art forms with a B.A. in English and a Master’s in Library and Information Science. She has immersed herself in cottage gardening for more than twenty-five years, studying garden design, color theory, antique flowers and historic gardens. She took classes in the studio art program in Expressive Botanical Arts at the Chicago Botanic Garden, Glencoe, Illinois. Juli has a studio at 16th Street Studios, located in the Racine Business Center, Racine, WI. Her work can be found at local galleries in the Racine and Kenosha area.

“Abstract art is not designed to resemble reality but to offer clarity & understanding with a touch of political incorrectness.”
From Antioch, IL to Phelps, WI, Brandy has spent the majority of her life living between Wisconsin and Illinois. Half of her family are Bears fans and half Packers fans. Because of this, she is NEUTRAL….. Lol Brandy has always been an inquisitive and creative thinker. However, in the past 4+ years she has been a creative Doer. For many years she was infected with pessimistic thinking, but has out grown that.

Mark’s artistic journey has been an exciting one. He enjoys pastels and the nuances of that medium. His experimental landscapes and figurative pastel paintings reflect the beauty of remote, quiet places and moments of his intimate connection to nature. Mark’s always searching for exciting new techniques, knowledge, movement, colors, feel, textures and light. He loves getting out into the great outdoors to paint plein air and capture first-hand the environmental mood, light and character of the location. A great example of his work is seen in the complex and concrete shapes of structures and dramatic landscapes allowing for strong contrasts of light and shadow.
Mark’s travels to Havana, Cuba took his creative spark a higher level altogether. This trip left him with a large portfolio of urban landscape material to draw from for years to come. Mark will often sit on a reference photo or idea, working until the right materials and textures come together in his creative process.
