Rooted in San Diego, California. Currently living and working in Encinitas, Ca. Also lived and worked in Los Angeles and Berlin, Germany.

Drawing is my foundation. I love to draw, always have, always will. Through drawing and painting, my artwork often explores relationships and tension points I see in our modern environment; such as my own connection and simultaneous disconnection to nature, humans & nature, money vs. nature, as well as observations of man-made environments, technology, and culture, in relation to the natural world.

George Hullenbaugh

Just got into oil painting a few months ago. Right now I enjoy painting portraits and painting in different hues of red. For the past few months I have been obsessed with the different styles of layering a thinning oil. Oil is definitely a different beast. Looking to hang a few of my painting up rather than store them a top my secretaries. A bad habit I have is between waiting for oils to dry I start a new painting. Constantly there is a circle of paintings in rotation. My favorite artist is Michael Hussar. His oil paintings are fa-nominal.

Honoring the tradition of Dia de los Muertos, these images reach into the celebration of families gathering to pray for and remember those who have passed on. The spiritual journey of those in eternal rest is dignified with the beauty of the women posing as la Catrina.

Collaborating with other artists to create these Dia de los Muertos images was such an honor. Working together, we were able to come up with different looks for each model--who were able to express their visions through the images captured.

I try and take advantage of all aspects of sunlight and its colorful and often mysterious effects to create unique works of photographic art that really makes you think.

It all started with my Dad taking pictures of us kids. Then it was me taking pictures of my kids. And while they didn't like it at the time, they now love being able to see those special moments in their lives that help them remember what it was like to be a kid.

For me, photography is a huge part of my life. Even when times are tough, what better way to get away from it all than by simply taking pictures of beautiful things. To do something I am passionate about ever since I was a kid is a dream come true. I've been taking beautiful pictures for years. Especially since the pristine Dana Point Headlands are my backyard and the Pacific Ocean is my swimming pool. I couldn't ask for better surroundings to allow my creative spirit to flow.

Add my fascination with nature, an eye for patterns, and deep understanding of light and its effects, and they all come together for making what I believe are truly unique and colorful works of photographic art that is worth sharing.

From Bakersfield to Balboa to Dana Point. My passion for capturing special moments in time has been there throughout. Photography to me is about so much more than just taking pretty pictures

Jeremy Lawson

photo is a sport of observation. As a shooter, I aim to capture the best of both context and story in a frame. I understand that moments leading up to a great shot and those included in a frame are linked by importance. As an observer of everyday life, I gravitate toward utilizing subtle visual ques like body language to provide insight and depicts an overall raw, unapologetic story. I use the lens to inform the viewer by focusing on habits and behaviors. More than anything, the service of a photographer provides behind the lens is to tell a real, unapologetic story. Lastly, I look to present the ordinary world in an extraordinary light focusing on the details and truth.

More than anything, the stories that are told simply need to be packaged correctly to provide a voice and platform to those who are otherwise overlooked.

I’ve made it my life’s mission to photograph the beauty of the natural world using photography as my medium. I’ve always had an adventurous spirit, and as a young child in Germany, I vividly remember wandering through the grassy fields that surrounded my village, traversing winding streams, climbing through tress, and just being completely enthralled by the outdoors. As I grew older and began to travel more, I developed a deeper appreciation for the many wonders this planet has to offer.

I have to admit, though, that no place has piqued my fascination more than the deserts of the Southwestern United States. As I trekked across the shifting sands of the Algodones Dunes, bouldered the many bizarre rock formations of the Alabama Hills, and walked among the beautiful Joshua Trees, I became enamored with the unique geography of this region. It was such a completely foreign environment to what I had ever experienced in Germany, that I felt an immediate and overwhelming desire to explore it. As an extension of this desire, I also felt a need to share what I saw . . . to convey to others what I encountered at that moment in time. I feel if people can connect in this way, if they become completely drawn into the image, then maybe they’ll experience the same sense of allure that I did. Maybe, they’ll also be inspired to help us preserve this amazing planet.

I see art as an extension of the conversation we have with ourselves, nature, loved ones and strangers. As I create, I aim to communicate in all spectrums of our lives. Sometimes, it's as simple as a playful palm, sometimes more complex like a junction in your life, which you're looking to define. Currently I am having fun taking in all the green around me (perhaps because I live in a desert). It's exciting to create a relationship between a plant and a vivid geometric pop of color, while using the negative space to reinforce that tension or connection. These green beauties are under #mysortofgreenthumb, because you know, it's way harder to over water a painting.

I live in Oceanside, raising my young daughter, teaching art, painting and freelancing with graphic design. My husband, daughter and I are often exploring Oceanside, looking for new places to grab dinner and enjoying the growing craft brewing community.

Angela Kiyono

"1,438" is a series of works that explores the idea of written memory and visual mementos. Each subject in the series was asked to pose with their personal diary or journal for an intimate photo shoot. Questions about personality, privacy, and memory arise. The subjects also priced their diaries for sale and the total dollar amount of the combined prices gave the series it's title "1,438." The diaries were exhibited with the photographs at the first showing.

There are 11 artworks in this photographic series. All are printed, matted, and framed by Angela Kiyono. The exhibit was shown in 2011 at the Guggenheim Gallery in Orange, CA. These are the only set of prints of the artworks.

"Painted Woman" explores the connection between beauty and art. Questions about self image and portrayed image arise, along with ideas regarding individuality, self esteem, and influence.

There are six artworks in this photographic series. The exhibit was initially shown in 2009 and has been kept by the artist since. These are original works with no digital copies.

Jesse Moncur

My photos consist of macro shots of flowers. I try to find things you won't normally see in you every day life. I am a fourteen year old that found out he might have a talent. I have only been practicing different ways to shoot for about a month or two.

I would really like to be a part of this because I would like to show people that anyone can do things with a little practice. I hope to inspire.
