From the artist:

I’m excited to participate in my second art battle! I am very experimental with my painting style - I love using palette knives, my hands, scrapers, and thick layered paint. I love incorporating my love of surrealism, contemporary art and pop art.

Julian provides redemption for lost objects. In addition to upcycling, she participates in painting, drawing, collage, wearable art and more./sf

From the artist:

Not a lot to celebrate in the offing come bleak January -- what, the Stupor Bowl?
Before rolling over to prolong that snooze - :Bring some friends on Saturday, January 21-- where hot-shot, deconstructed, re-discombobulated actual art committed by gobs of under-paid artists, a whole bunch of 'em, all gathered to paint right before your eyes.

These off-kilter, creative types will assemble and empty their craniums to splash the contents onto canvases all fighting for primacy as to who's best hung. And, if past is prologue, there'll be cake.

Julie Forbes provides redemption for lost artifacts. Those of a more secular bent consider it trash transmogrified. Discarded, then whipped to a froth by an edgy hand where she seeks to engage viewers with high-tech, torn-down art.

Bernadette Enriquez

"Bernadette is a portrait artist who likes realism but also enjoys letting their imagination run wild and turning into surrealism. While she doesn't really have a set style, she loves lots of vibrant colors and letting emotions take control of her art.”/sf
