        Patty DiStefano

        Artist Statement:

        Patricia (Patty) DiStefano Donahue I consider myself an assemblage artists, like Hector the collector in Shell Silverstein’s poem I collect broken, worn-out, rusted, dented, chipped, useless and otherwise unwanted stuff, then transform my treasures into unique works of art. For some reason my inspiration is closely linked to the Victorian era, which is why I am drawn to the city of Lowell Mass. My art experience is rooted in clay and I discovered the joy and freedom of expression in the creative process using my hands shaping clay. Formally trained in ceramics and graphic design, but rejecting the rigid confines I found in the commercial art world, and followed my heart, imagination and desire to create what pleases me. 

        Assemblage art is a 3 dimensional collage made up of found objects, a 20th century art form which I love, I am putting together a puzzle with pieces that don’t belong. Come look into my treasure trunk and maybe you’ll find something that speaks to your heart. 
        I am a lover of this planet, the mother of artists, and owner of Gallery Z

        Hilary Hanson Bruel

         

        Artist Statement:

        I am a (re)emerging artist from the Boston area who works with encaustic paint. My multi-layer paintings are studies in color, composition, and texture that highlight the unique properties of the medium, and which are informed by my background in both fine arts and graphic design. Working abstractly allows me to focus on the process of painting, while the resulting piece can evoke a different emotional response from each viewer.

        Laurie Simko

        Artist Statement:

        Over the past decade I have produced a series of paintings and collages exploring the richness of life in the streams, marshes, gardens and woods around me. The macro and micro views in nature allow for a diverse interpretation of their organic forms in their varying stages of growth.

        I work with multi-media, including oil and acrylic, on a variety of papers and canvas, searching for a fresh, personal expression of the natural world. I inquire with reverence into the interconnection we have with our fragile and changing environment with its offerings of chaos and order, flow and stillness, growth and decay,

        Carolyn Lee

         

        Artist Statement:

        My name is Carolyn Lee and I have a studio at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA and every spare table at my home. I have many interests and my passion is whatever I am working on at the moment. Family, friends, nature, and life in general are a constant inspiration and guide me from one project to another. Most of my work is saturated with color and whimsy but I also like the starkness of black and white as in this series Toilet Paper Rolls – Deconstructed. This is a true life experience series that started in April 2020 when the “toilet paper crisis” hit. I had just replenished my supply with a 24 pack before news broke people were making a mad dash to the stores to get their TP.  I was also 3 weeks into a 6 week printing class that was abruptly cancelled so my current passion was collagraph.

        Raksha Soni

        Artist Statement:

        After 20 years of diligent work as a software Engineer for Siebel Systems and Oracle, Raksha Soni began an epic second act: to follow her true calling for Art. She studied fine arts while she was in school and college. She founded Brush & Paisley in 2017, to bring her art to new audiences. As an artist she is prolific and has had over a dozen exhibitions where she has showcased her signature style; from intricate Indian folk art to lush, opulent landscapes that capture the nostalgia and emotion of the nature. Along with furthering her own journey as an artist, she teaches young kids and adults helping them express and harness their creativity and find their artistic voice. She primarily works with oils, acrylics and watercolors. Her artwork has received numerous awards, and has been displayed at various charity in both India and the US. 

        In her own words “Art is a foundational part of my life, and I try to spend my free time experimenting with it. I express my gratitude, emotions, and admiration for nature and Mother Earth through color. My inspiration comes from the many sources: places I travel to, nature, architecture, culture and the people around me. The creative process gives me tremendous joy, satisfaction, and a sense of great accomplishment, and I hope this beautiful journey of self-discovery continues forever.”
