JAN BROWN, painter
Jan Brown: "I truly think it's important to find what you’re passionate about in Life and just do it! When painting I like to use expressive abstraction and vibrant colors of magnitude so my paintings motivate dynamic energy and Life. The impact on the viewer will always vary in the art world... My passion is to reach that place of inner peace and symbolic meaning to an individual."
"The artist gazes upon a reality and creates their own impression. The viewer gazes upon the impression and creates his own reality" ~ Robert Brault
“Shauna Kruse has been viewing the world “through the lens” since she received her first camera from her mom at age 8. She loves capturing the beauty around her and never alters her landscape photos in any way. The photos you see in this showing have been taken all over the United States, but primarily focuses on our very own beautiful Northwest.
With over 10 years of professional experience, Shauna specializes in outdoor portrait photography and loves working with people of all ages, personalities and everything from family photos, maternity and newborn photos, professional head shots, and weddings. She loves to have creative input from her clients and also has a portable background and lighting for indoor photos.
Shauna believes in giving back and because of this she will be donating 10% to be split between two charities: Wounded Warrior Project (www.woundedwarriorproject.org
) and Dollar Per Month (www.dollarpermonth.org) This is 10% from every session booked, every print, gift certificate, and fine art print that is purchased through the end of the year. Please help her make a difference.”
