Whimsical, fun artworks and art techniques

Ráed Al-Rawi, Charlotte, is an American-Iraqi who blends acrylic colors to a hazy luminosity to paint his cartoon-like, imaginative depictions of animals.


Cindy Biles, Graham, creates ceramic sculptures of people and animals that tell stories and evoke memories and emotions.


Tammy Leigh Brooks, Hickory, sculpts impeccably detailed roosters and chickens from a combination of wheel-thrown, coil-built and slab-worked clay.  


John K. Crum, Hilton Head Island, SC, uses boats as his metaphor to create paintings that that reflect emotions, events and life in a whimsical, gentle surrealism.


Justine Dennis, New Haven, KY, takes disparate recycled materials and creates one-of-a-kind hats.  


 

Kathryn B. Phillips, Asheville, paints imaginative contraptions inspired by the intricacies and implications of machinery.


  • Vincent Sansone, Orlando, FL, crafts fanciful ceramic sculptures incorporating such elements as armored cats, fish with wheels and walking pickles.


Victoria Sexton, Greenville, NC, creates exotic clay sculptures by wrapping slabs of clay around fabric forms and finishing them with paint, colored pencils and colored waxes.


Walter Stanford, Kannapolis, paints humorous pastels of fantasy creatures, animals and scenes from life.  


Izel Vargas, Boynton Beach, FL, creates thought-provoking mixed media artworks informed by comics and cartoons that draw from his upbringing along the United States-Mexican border.
