First, we would like to introduce to you Sergey Cherep. Almost 20 years ago, Sergey attended the World Cup Soccer game in California and visited Napa Valley while he was there. He was enchanted by the grapes, the beautiful landscape and the overall ambiance. It was then that his art changed from the traditional European style of painting that depicted stark realism and was so prevalent in Russia to painting a bright, vivid palette of land and sea in primary colors. You can see more of his breathtaking work HERE.

Janet Searfoss : Batik

Next, we would like to introduce to you Janet Searfoss. Janet is a painter of Batik, the antique appearing paintings done with hot wax and dyes that often resemble stained glass in fabric form. You can learn even more about Janet HERE.

Kevan Breitinger : Mosaics

The final artist we are going to introduce to you is Kevan Breitinger. Pictured above, you can take a look at the unique mosaic fish that features handmade, hand-colored polymer clay tiles (mermaid, musical notes, a bunny and a key, among others), stained glass chips, found objects, Scrabble tiles, and pottery shards, in a funky homage to Beauty. You can view more of Kevan’s work HERE.
