Little House Art

Colleen Sullivan

Colleen is a printmaker and painter working in the Bay Area. As a printmaker, her work is spontaneous and experiemental - atypicial for most printmakers, whereby editioning is a strong motivator. On the contrary, Ms. Sullivan prefers the flexibility of monotyping, which offers a great deal of freedom and diversity. In painting, combining different materials, such as acrylic, graphite, ink collage, oil stick or pastel, she uses whatever it takes to express the mark convincingly. That is the goal; that is the spirit! Ms. Sullivan maintains an art studio in Redwood City, (www.project275.com), with seven (7) artists and the on-site gallery, Branner-Spangenberg. She is a member of the California Society of Printmakers.
 

Diana Day Glynn

 

A member of the Burlingame Art Society, Diana has won many ribbons/awards at different events through the years. Her most recent honor was being awarded 2013's "Artist of the Year" with the Burlingame Art Society. She has shown and sold her work at many different venues, from retail shops to Art Shows. Diana's style is meticulous and mostly realistic, but she also finds pleasure in going a bit abstract once in a while, usually by using a palette knife for a painting, instead of a brush. She only paints subjects that move her. Diana believes painting comes from the soul, and so affirms that there is a little part of her in each of her paintings.

 Gail Wong

Heavily influenced by late nineteenth-century French Impressionism and post impressionism , particularly Monet and Matisse, Ms. Wong has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and the South Sea Islands. However, it was her opportunity to visit Monet's garden in Giverny, France that has most inspired her impressionistic work. Absorbing the peaceful tranquility of nature, she has translated her analytical observations of nature and the rendering of transitory visual impressions, into a body of work that emphasizes intriguing light and dark values, polychromatic colors, and a carefully designed simplification of the visual world. Illuminated by the living colors of flowers, trees, water, and sky, her art evokes a truly tranquil and serene recollection of nature.
