Originally from West Virginia, I now live in Columbus and exhibit my artwork regionalIy and nationally. I work in encaustic and with various painting and drawing materials to create images that depicts, architecture, landscape, and domestic objects. I am inspired by architecture’s potential to be a vessel for memory. Some spaces that I work with are from my own experiences, others are reimagined and inspired by folklore and ghost stories. Much of my images are inspired by a sense of loss which is represented through the absence of figures and unfinished or disappearing structures and environments. I currently teach art courses at Columbus College of Art and Design and Columbus State Community College and I continually seek connections between my teaching and my art practice.

I am a self-taught multi-media artist. I experiment with different paint mediums on canvas to push my creative process. I use unconventional items to move and manipulate the paint. Water also is used in the creation of my work, which brings the fluid motions in my abstractions to life. My new work consists of paintings inspired by the Pareidolia Syndrome (Rorschach ink blot test). This Syndrome is defined as a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus, often an image, being perceived as significant. It’s the same as seeing images of animals or faces in clouds. My intent is to challenge the viewer to define images in the work, either intentional or unintentional. My work is Inspired by artists such as Rothko, Richter, de Kooning and Bourguignon.

I'm pleased to present poetry that I actually like, and some that I haven't even really written yet. You'll be the first to see them here!

I'm a 53 year old guy with a wonderful wife and daughter. The photography bug bit me about three years ago. I typically shoot whatever I can find in the Columbus area and hope to share beauty found in the every day bits of life.

My name is Jennifer Morley, and I have a neurological condition called Synesthesia. My senses are wired together in my brain and I experience multiple at the same time. I am able to actually SEE music. To me, songs have sound, texture, color, movement, a position in space, and I can touch them too. I started painting songs as a way to express and explain my experiences and share them with others. Each painting is a physical representation of my visions when I listen to a particular song. My favorite pieces are commissions for gifts and special moments, like wedding songs. I can't wait to share my experiences with you!
I am a mixed media artist inspired by both the physical quality and metaphorical implications of cellular forms. I am inspired by microscope slides, natural cycles, repetition, pattern, living mindfully, cheering for the underdog, Jungian theory, collections of small objects, dreams and art therapy. I paint whenever my kids are asleep. In others words, I am living my dream while my girls dream.
