Kira

Kira

?Bringing art to life is an amazing trait found in Dekira’s artwork. She loves to use vibrant colors that truly depict her art as real and unbelievably intriguing. Working with gauche is her favorite medium to use. She also works with watercolor, acrylic and oils. Her work is not limited to just painting. Her skill spills over to other talents such as Designing/making clothes, Graphic Designing, Jewelry Making, Ceramics and Stain Glass. She even dapples in Photography. ?As a child she was always up in her room creating, whether it was a drawing for a family member or making clothes for her Barbies and baby dolls. She has always had a passion for fashion and a love for the arts which has only grown over the years. Dekira started painting at the early age of 8. Through her adolescent life she has won numerous contests for the Lions Club and Teen Arts competitions. She is currently attending DuCret School of Art in Plainfield, New Jersey. DuCret is one of the top 10 art schools in New Jersey. While attending DuCret, Dekira’s art has won numerous awards which has open doors for her art work to be displayed in multiple Galleries across New Jersey. ?Dekira’s love for tigers and their beauty has inspired her to do a series of paintings of tigers in the wild. The tigers in these painting are so realistic that they make you feel as though you are sharing the same space as them. She also paints beautiful full figured women with so much movement and inspiration that it uplifts you as you gaze upon them. There is a story behind every piece and her story is only just beginning.
Larry Felder

Larry Felder

Larry Felder's creative output encompasses several dimensions. He is an accomplished Artist, Writer, Illustrator and Paleo Artist, the creative field that bridges Paleontology with Fine Art. A 1980 graduate of Montclair State College, he holds a BA in Fine Art and Political Science, and a minor in Geology. As an Artist, he is equally at home in Landscape, Figure and Portraiture, in oil and acrylic. His work can be found in numerous public and collections, including those of Stevie Nicks, Steve Martin and the Estate of Groucho Marx. His landscapes and seascapes draw a direct line from the 19th Century Hudson River School and the Luminists, but add a distinctive 21st Century perspective, with a unique sense of light and form. And his debut novel Afterglow, which describes a dystopian world where watching thermonuclear detonations has become the world's most popular form of live entertainment, is currently being explored for a film option and development. Larry's illustrations have appeared in numerous books and magazines, such as Scientific American, Earth and New Jersey Monthly. And his work in the field of Paleo Illustration has made him one of the preeminent dinosaur illustrators in the world, having been featured in books, magazines, museums, on-line services and TV shows and films, such as The Discovery Channel, AOL, the Museum of Science in Boston, and the 2011 Brad Pitt and Sean Penn film The Tree of Life. His 2000 book In the Presence of Dinosaurs was the only TIME/LIFE volume ever awarded a Starred Review in Publisher's Weekly, and remains one of the most popular and well-received titles on the subject of dinosaurs. In addition to his creative endeavors, he has also made a number of contributions to the field of Paleontology, among them having discovered the second largest group of dinosaur footprints ever found in New Jersey, and the oldest fossil mammal footprints in existence, a new species 204 million years old, which is set to be given the name Ameghinichnus felder i, when it is formally described.

Michelle Santiago

Michelle Santiago

Hey everyone, my name is Michelle and I am a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, one of my favorite cities. Moved back to New Jersey after college and was hired to do in-house print graphics at an engineering company.  Ever since, I’ve worked as a graphic designer while freelance illustrating. I would say painting and animals are my two passions. I hope to one day own a dog rescue, or a farm, or maybe just a few chickens and create paintings of animals. I look forward to painting with you!
