Malaysia is my homeland, where I earned a Textile Design and Art Teacher's Diploma from Mara Institute of Technology, Kuala Lumpur. During the 80s, I taught art professionally in public schools and at the Specialist Teacher’s Training Institute, Kuala Lumpur for seven years, and then I was appointed to be part of the Malaysian Art Examination Panel for Malaysian Schools. In 1986, I was awarded a Federal Teaching Scholarship to pursue a Master of Arts Degree (Art Education) at the University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana, graduating in 1988. I married artist/Professor Billy Morrow Jackson and lived in Champaign.

In 2003, Billy and I co-authored a full-color art book entitled: On This Island: An Artistic View of Martha's Vineyard, commissioned by Spotlight Press, Champaign, Illinois, published in 2005. The book features over 75 original watercolor paintings of Martha's Vineyard and captures the life and spirit of the people. After my husband passed away, my life and artwork have been deeply affected by it. Later, I married artist Brian J. Sullivan.

In 2004, I became the founder of an art group called "International Artists Group" (IAG) of Champaign/Urbana. I was also elected as a member of International Women Artists Council (INWAC) based in Malaysia. Every two years the group travels to different countries to host "Her Presence In Colors" - Asian/International Women Artists Exhibition, art conference, tour, forum and workshops. In 2011, I received a "Community Builder Award" sponsored by the Asian American Cultural Center, University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana.

I won several art awards and was involved with community and commission art projects. I participated in numerous art exhibitions, locally, nationally, and worldwide as far as Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Australia and England. More than 500 of my artworks are in private and public permanent collections throughout the world and the United States including the Illinois State Art Museum, Springfield, IL, (ACES) College of Agriculture, Consumer and Environment Science Library, University of Illinois, Champaign/Urbana, IL, Office of the Mayor, The City of Champaign and The City of Urbana, IL, Washington Pavilion of Arts & Science, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Emporia State University, Emporia, Kansas, Wright Museum of Art, Beloit College, Beloit, WI, Kedah State Art Gallery and Museum, Malaysia, Popoff and Cie Gallery, Paris France and Datang Fine Arts Gallery, Singapore.

I am an artist residing in Mahomet, Illinois working primarily in oil pastel and acrylic paint.

Influenced by the home gaming culture as a child, Jason’s earlier material consisted of small doodled characters that eventually developed to more detailed comic book style illustrations in his adolescence. These illustrations made for a suitable transition into a more “Fine Arts” approach to subject matter.

While working toward his AFA at Parkland College, Jason studied drawing, watercolor, and design under professors Don Lake and Ann Coddington Rast. Introductions to new mediums such as pen and ink and photography also contributed to an expanding knowledge of artistic processes and relationships.

Upon transferring to the University of Illinois to pursue a BFA in Graphic Design, Jason found digital media’s aesthetic applications to be discomfortingly unfamiliar, but provocative and challenging. The influence of this new visual culture set the stage for continued interest and further exploration in the relationships of combined media, its levels of communication, and social intent.

Sandra Batzli works primarily in watercolor. Her paintings often depict views of the landscape as seen from a distance or close up often with an emphasis on cast shadows.

She is an Illinois Artisan, a member of the Door County, Wisconsin Art League, the Craft League of Champaign-Urbana, and the Spinners and Weavers Guild and Artisans 10+ (a local group she help found.)

Her work has won awards of distinction at juried shows at the Swope Museum in Terre Haute, Indiana and the Hardy Gallery in Ephraim, Wisconsin.

Individuals interested in seeing more of her work or in purchasing cards may contact her by calling or e-mailing her to arrange for a visit to her studio and small gallery she maintains at her home in Urbana.

I am currently the owner of Heartland Gallery, where I exhibit my photography of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, The Isle of Man and other European countries in addition to local scenes. I have been selling my digital photos since 2004, when I opened a home-based gallery called Celticscapes. I also do wedding and event calligraphy, as well as art calligraphy, and watercolor painting. My background is varied, though I have no art-related degrees. I have had numerous classes in drawing and painting, including most recently with Professor Emeritus Don Lake and Jamie Kruidenier, both formerly of Parkland College.

I am also an actor/performer, and have had involvements with many local groups including The Celebration Company at the Station Theatre (actor, dancer), The Champaign-Urbana Ballet company (dancer), the Champaign-Urbana Theatre Company (actor, designer, assistant director, producer), and Parkland College (actor). I have also danced with the Thistle and Heather Highland Dancers of Chicago and the (former) Mullane Academy of Irish Dance in Champaign.

I was born in the Midwest where there are no mountains and no sea. The power and beauty of that landscape lies in the Zen like emptiness of the light-filled air, the wild sky splitting thunderstorms, the endless grass and the endless stars. Light, space and motion have been defining features of my work from the very beginning.

My formal artistic training began at Schiller European University in Strasbourg, France. I received my BFA from Maine College of Art and my MFA from the University of Iowa.

Body based disciplines have also been of foundational importance to my work. I studied ballet with Tatiana Bechanova of the Original Ballet Russe, modern dance at the University of Iowa, under Chester Wolensky of the Jose Limon Company, and at Ram Island Dance Company. I studied and taught Shotokan karate at the Japan Karate Association in Chicago, receiving my first degree black belt from Nishiyama, and my second degree black belt from Sugiyama.

I have shown my work in galleries across the country, including Chicago, New York, Portland, Maine, and Champaign, Illinois.
My paintings are included in the collection of The Davistown Museum in Maine, and at Kofusion in Champaign, IL, and can be viewed on my website, at jessbeyler.com

Introduction

Welcome, I am Trey Coppland. an Artist and Designer living in Champaign, Illinois. As an Abstract medium, I use bright bold color to create a story. My work has a contemporary to modern flare to it. I like to paint on a large-scale platform, the bigger the canvas, the bigger the story. My art is split into albums, on my Google Plus Page.
When I work with clients, I like to collect ideas from their homes, lifestyles, ect. I as minimalist, I like the art to reflect the statement and color scheme of the room. Really, I want the art to be focal point the room.

I love to work with Urban Lofts, large open spaces, exposed piping, brick walls, and over sized windows, from ultra modern to eclectic styling. A loft or a warehouse space are two of my favorites to design spaces. There are some many have so many unique options to consider.

I use Tumblr for all my work , art, and music. I edition I have a blog titled "Mafia Art Blog", I post my art work, friends and some of my favorite's artist's as well.

Education

School of Art and Design Street Style

Art and Design, 1988 - present

Education School of Art and Design Street Style Art and Design, 1988 – present- Life is a learning a process, you learn from your mistakes, if you don’t have any mistakes you have not learned, Art comes from your Soul, it’s a gift. You don’t learn gifts in school, you master them as you grow, the older you are the more wisdom you have, with wisdom you have mastered your gift of life. Art is Art. Interior Design some people are born with an eye for design and style, adding color to a to a room through Art and letting the Art be the statement and be the focal point, you learn less is more, being a minimalist in life and design you learn what your treasures are in life. Art is Art.

In 1963 born in the small Midwest Illinois town of Mahomet, I went to school and graduated from Mahomet-Seymour High School in 1982. After high school I felt the need to experience other places besides the tranquil fields of the small Midwest farm country. In 1986, I found myself in Jacksonville, Florida where I obtained a Bachelors degree in Fine Art (BFA), with a minor in commercial art, and my career began designing
graphics for textiles. After 13 years in Florida, my travels brought me to new experiences in the large screen print industry in St. Paul, Minneapolis.
In 2008, I found myself back in the Midwest farm country of Mahomet, with family. Continuing my experiences with web graphic design, my passions have resurfaced for creating Fine Art. Seeing the enjoyment in peoples eyes, and face when they see my visions I have placed on canvas, has me wanting to continue to grow and explore the possibilities of the wonderful world of fine art as an artist.
