Stanka Kordic: Haunting, rhythmic, captivating and mysterious... I have great compassion for humanity, and there is no other way for me to express that, than through a portrait or figurative work.

Andrea Kemp, Colorado based oil painter: The inspiration for my paintings come from all around me. Sometimes it can be as simple as a color, other times it can be the way two people are interacting. Whatever it might be, it is used as a building block for the piece. That is when creating an environment that will compliment, emphasize, or perhaps downplay my motive becomes so important to executing that vision.
