ABOUT LORI COZEN-GELLER



During the art process, Cozen-Geller looks to capture the emotions of the heart and mind and places them into visual form within space. “This process is a kinetic one for me. It is a journey that begins with a feeling, evolves into a powerful emotion and is then transformed into art. By freezing emotions and placing them into concrete form, I can then sit back and view the strength and meaning that now lies within the piece that has materialized as art. “

ABOUT VESELA BAKER
 

Acrylic and watercolor are the media of choice for me because of the fast drying process. I continue to learn every day, and my work constantly evolves, as I always have the desire to see things a bit different and in a new way. I like switching between wood and paper, watercolor and acrylic. Because I spend so much time in the studio, that helps me to not get stuck. It forces me to see things from a different perspective and breaks my thought process so I can take a fresh approach. Once in a while, I feel like I have to have some more control and need to slow down so I paint realism. 

Vesela is a full time artist working with her husband, Curt from their studio in Chattanooga, TN. She received training in art education at The University of Sofia,Bulgaria.
