David Swanagin is a self-taught oil painter specializing in mood-evoking landscapes and interiors. He originally began painting at twelve, where his focus on detail and reality formed the groundwork for more spontaneous work. His artwork now ranges from representational to impressionistic. Through light and shadows, David presents realistic views resulting in appealing contemporary works. Wanting viewers to feel an emotional resonance in his work, David attempts to incorporate a sense of connection between the artist and the scene.

Encouraged by his mother, Michael Meissner has painted as long as he remembers. Graduating from a graphic design school that incorporated basic art classes, he has continued his self-taught methods each time his brush would touch canvas. Although his style has changed over time, Michael still gravitates to strong colors and directional light in traditional mediums such as oils and pastels. In addition to creating his own pieces, Michael teaches others to create works of art.
