For Joanna, photography has been the perfect blend of art and people. As a Champaign native and U of I graduate, she maintains a special connection to her subjects with her hometown as a consistent backdrop for her images.

Joanna is a photographer specializing in natural light portraiture. With an emphasis on lifestyle imagery and natural settings as opposed to studio, Joanna captures children, teens, and families, as well as events, headshots, and webshots.Air Jordan

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. Nike

MudBugs Pottery began early in 2004 with a sturdy electric wheel, some porcelain clay, and a portable raku kiln. We broadened our reach in 2007 with a small electric kiln almost 50 years old. This allowed us to begin producing enough volume for a limited number of Art Fairs and exhibiting annually. The success of online sales helped us to purchase our first fully-automated kiln in 2009, and Etsy shop moonshine-jug.com has since become a major facet of our business. Our work is also found at Homespun in the Historic Irvington Neighborhood of Indianapolis, Vintage Karma in Tuscola, Illinois, and The Illinois State Artisans Gallery at Rend Lake. As part of our community involvement we regularly contribute to a local HIV Awareness fundraiser and fundraisers for local food banks and soup kitchens.Air Jordan 1 High OG OSB DIAN Blue Chill White CD0463-401 – Buy Best Price Adidas&Nike Sport Sneakers

Phil was born and raised in Flushing, Queens. His Dad played big band jazz and sang Opera. Phil painted a mural on the wall of his Jr HS across from the library, of Romeo and Juliet.They never caught him (actually it was 6 foot by 8 foot and took over two months).
In college at the University of Illinois, Phil loved his freehand drawing class but quit the Architecture program after one semester. Eventually getting a degree in Communications/Radio-TV. He helped start Record Service while still in school and worked at making it the best record/CD store in central Illinois for 34 years.
At the same time Phil played in bands (Bloom and Brownfield and the Rocking Clones) stayed active on the High n Mighty softball team and appeared in over 35 theatre productions, mostly at the Station Theatre. All the while Phil was using his creativity doing all the advertising for the Record Service (and mentoring and hiring HS students to do drawings for our ads)
Phil also encouraged many local musicians and bands to record and sell local records and put out three records on his own label as well as a Record Service compilation of twenty years of music from C-U.. And eventually took up writing for some local papers and magazines about local music, theatre and art.
Since 2004 when the music industry collapse caused Record Service to implode, Phil has worked extensively on his painting developing a style of painting on glass quite different from anything else he has seen. Using Van Gogh and graphic novels as two of his inspirations he has been carving out a niche while producing over 300 paintings.
In the last three years much of his work has been portraits of avatars he meets in the virtual world of Second Life but he also works in real life as well and has started painting local artists.And most importantly Phil has two great kids who inspire him to be a better person, Tess and Joe Strang.Air Jordan 4 "Purple Metallic" White/Court Purple-Metallic Silver For Sale
