Jill is a self-taught painter with a love for the architecture and style of New England. Though now a studio painter, she has also worked extensively with photography. The viewer can see that influence in how she captures lighting and character in her intimate portraits of rural and coastal details of New England life. Jill is working deliberately with contrast and color to create pieces which engage the viewer and invite quiet nostalgia. Her work preserves moments of captured time, and the time she spends on her paintings is a meditation on each moment.
"I try find the vitality and diversity of the scene while focusing on the emotion of the work I am creating. I always make an effort to be open to new possibilities and innovative ways to create. My goal, if possible, is not remain at the same level all the time. "

Mark H. Brown was born in 1974. His love for art was evident as a young child, spending many hours in his bedroom drawing cars, animals and things of his imagination. Through the years, he studied the paintings of the masters through books and visits to museums and held a continual fascination for the realism of the dutch masters. While enjoying a wide spectrum of styles and subject matter, Mark found that his temperament and passion took him in the direction of classical realism. In the pursuit of that goal, he furthered his studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, in Philadelphia, PA. After his studies were complete, he and his wife, Elizabeth, moved to Carlisle, PA where they now reside with their three children, Luke, Eliana and Aliya.
Mark has been enjoying painting full time as an artist since 2000, while he and his family travel throughout the US exhibiting in outdoor art shows, gallery shows and group shows. Mark has received numerous awards at outdoor shows; including three best in shows, several 1st Place in oils and numerous other awards. He has also been selected as a finalist in the Artists Magazine Annual Contest during two different years. He was pleased to be included in the 2009 Oil Painters of America National Competition with his painting of "The Chocolate Pot."

"Creating a painting requires so much more than the mechanics of working a brush on paper...talents given or developed, to go beyond the simple illustrating of a subject or an idea. You have to draw from all available resources, one's emotions, dreams, environmental influences, bringing all parts to fruition in a concrete form without losing the passion that compelled you to create in the first place. Most often the settings of my paintings are purely fictional, props to set the desired mood, yet highly reflective of the people, places and experiences that have most influenced my work. Each painting creates a new challenge, new discoveries in my mediums, rekindling a spirit within that makes art more than a rewarding, satisfying profession...it makes art a way of life."

ANTONIA TYZ PEEPLES
Born in 1957, Antonia grew up in a creative household and was encouraged by her mother, a painter, and her father, a photographer, to pursue painting; she started taking lessons from local artists in her home state of Connecticut at the age of ten. She continued her studies after high school at Eastern Connecticut State University and Silvermine Guild Art Center in New Canaan, Connecticut.
To quote Antonia:
“Water is a never ending source of inspiration for me. Each day, one painting after another, I seek an ever deepening understanding of its essence. The more I observe, the more it seems there is to discover. The surface designs, deep waters and shore breaks offer an infinite array of beautiful complexity. Ever changing and omnipresent, the ocean is such a universal part of our existence. There is a certain feeling of connectedness when sitting by its shores. The endless rhythm, power and mystery of the sea course through our very veins. Choosing to explore water and its visual language through my paintings has been an enlightening and uplifting gift that I enjoy sharing. Thank you for taking the journey with me.
