Jesse Lindsay is a traveling freelance artist and art teacher, currently living in a shared artist collective, near the Oregon coast.
"My personal work ranges from drawing, painting, music, sculpting, short films, photography and anything else I can get my hands on, the only thing that limits me are free time and resources. Many of my images and concepts are a mixture of psychological elements, aspects of my personality, Ideas, explorations, memories and an illustrated dream diary. All most all of my personal work is rooted in my dreams; I have been referring to it as a type of "Alchemical Surrealism".

“For Alfredo Rodriguez, painting was as much a part of his childhood development as learning to walk and speak. Some of his earliest memories are of illustrating classroom assignments and painting portraits of family members with one of his earliest gifts, a set of watercolors from his mother at the age of six. Born and raised in Mexico in a family of nine children, Alfredo used his supplement his family's income needs.”
My work is based around the philosophy of art as spiritual practice and I am interested in learning about and representing the true nature of our reality. Currently I am studying ancient esotericism and mysticism and feel most drawn to the concept of being ‘light and fluid’. It assumes no boundaries of our consciousness, and no limitation to the human form and mind. In other words, one is not confined to ones body alone, instead is connected to all that is. This particularly fascinated me, especially seen in the context of our modern day existence.
William has been painting for more than 30 years in oils and watercolors. He began working in representational landscapes and, while living in Alaska, branched out into abstracted imagery, performance, video, installations and sculpture. Since moving to Vermont in 1987, he has come full circle with a renewed concentration on representational paintings of landscape, seascape and portraiture on canvas and panel. His work is frequently included in juried exhibitions regionally and nationally where he has been singled out for recognition. His purchased and commissioned paintings grace the walls of private collectors around the world. His portrait of the first couple to receive a civil union in the United States is now on display as part of the permanent collection of the State of Vermont. It is the only image of a gay couple on display as part of a government collection in the United States.
Vivianne Nantel (Vivi Devi Atmajyotis)
This vivacious being, was born in St-Lambert, Province of Quebec, in the suburb of Montreal, Canada. She grew up with a burning desire to help humanity, and make a contribution. At a young age she was naturally fascinated with spirituality, philosophy, curvilinear lines, splashes of colors and words. She also spent many nights wondering about existence, God, the cosmos, and the purpose of being, and seeking the Divine.
For as long as I can remember I have been obsessed with space and my own recurring thoughts on what is out “there”. And the older I become the more vivid my thoughts are. Just looking at a Hubble Space Telescope picture is a mind opening experience. These pictures show so much, yet we are so far away. I want to try and purvey what is, or could be out there from another perspective, not the isolated position we hold in the universe. There could be any manner of sights in the far reaches of space and I long to bring my interpretation of them to life for others to share.
