She is a gaze collector, an idea chaser and a full time single mom. Her work takes her traveling over a broad range of fluctuating emotional enigmas and concepts that have set the standard of our modern communication. Working in a home studio, Sandra produces her work at a full-time scale, aggressively pursuing a common thread until it is worn away, leaving her to begin on a new path.  photo unnamed_zpsdcncsjxl.jpg  photo unnamed-1_zpsom7794xv.jpg

Louise McNaught

 photo unnamed_zpszhmmemev.jpg  photo unnamed-1_zps3asbrfzk.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpshoq4nlhn.jpg Louise McNaught completed her Fine Art Degree BSc (Hons) in 2012 at the University of Greenwich, and she has continued to work as a professional artist ever since, with international representation.... Louise‘s creations feature nature, animals, and the celestial realm in glorious, blazing neon hues, where the animals are God-like, Sublime and ethereal in their luminescence. McNaught's work is motivated by emotive and spiritual experiences which has manifested in a mixed-media approach. Her soft style suggests a delicate relationship between nature and ourselves, making a clear point about man's destruction of nature - which flutters jewel-like in the balance. When focusing on endangered species the imagery often takes on a duality of not only what is happening to the animal itself, but also relfects how we feel psychologically about the effect the human race is having on these species.  photo unnamed-2_zps3z7gpb4z.jpg  photo unnamed-3_zpsqpdxl6x0.jpg

Kelvin Okafor

 photo unnamed_zpsl1bkclgp.jpg  photo unnamed-4_zpsaq7hcifw.jpg  photo unnamed-2_zps88jtfoqm.jpg Born in Tottenham 1985, multi-award winning artist Kelvin Okafor’s meteoric rise to acclaim has been well noted in the UK’s media. His stunningly executed portraits are sought after by collectors and celebrities worldwide. This debut solo exhibition of 28 portraits will be on show throughout May at Albemarle Gallery. The pursuit of perfection is the main driving force behind Kelvin Okafor’s works, not only in the sheer quality of draftsmanship but the ability to evoke an immediate emotional connection between subject and viewer. Okafor is preoccupied in painstakingly capturing and conveying the expressions and gestures of his subjects and is therefore not surprisingly a strong believer in patience being a virtue. The length of time required to create the finished drawing is of far less concern than Okafor’s need to take the work to the highest possible level of execution.  photo unnamed-1_zpsfco46zb2.jpg  photo unnamed-3_zpsv6holwjx.jpg

Roos van der Vliet

 photo unnamed-3_zpsh8ndxznd.jpg  photo unnamed_zpssbwjtrhr.jpg Roos van der Vliet is an emerging artist living in Arhem, Netherlands. She earned a BFA from ArtEZ Institute of the Arts in Arhem. Roos is concerned with the human condition, particularly with how living in such a large and historied world affects our identities. She paints stunning photorealist portraits of young women she identifies with in an effort to resolve these feelings of anonymity and alienation. By focusing on small details and expressions, she finds a common understanding between two unique individuals. (via Canvas)  photo unnamed-1_zpsczdcjxbe.jpg  photo unnamed-2_zps0lkpqpfp.jpg
