Painting with Oils has been my favorite medium since the age of ten. My training and educational background in the History of Art, Design of the Environment and Landscape Architecture have provided a rich foundation of design principles which continue to drive the visual design and composition of my nature and landscape paintings. The painting process keeps me focused on the here and now.
With my oils and brush in hand, I delight in the edges, textures, shapes and colors that hold me captive in a moment's time, in a specific place, mood and scene within my surrounding locale and its natural elements. Through painting, I seek to capture that one scene and moment that compels us to pause and take it all in. It is my hope that the finished painted canvas can focus the viewer's attention and move them the same way I was moved in an instance in time by a specific moment in nature and its surrounding scenery.

Santa Fe New Mexico based photographer Brian K. Edwards specializes in fine art, travel, and documentary photography and photographic print making. His realist fine art photography includes landscapes, urban street scenes, and architecture. Much of his work combines landscape with interesting, often haunting, architectural subjects. His specialized photographic printmaking makes his prints truly unique -- incorporating depth and tones not often found in other photographs. These processing techniques include archival pigment and palladium prints, and prints that combine palladium, cyanotype, and watercolor pigments (gum bichromate). He also makes traditional black and white (gelatin silver) and modern archival pigment prints.
Brian's work has been published in many magazines and exhibited in numerous galleries throughout the US. His series The Vanishing Middle Class was selected by Center Santa Fe for Review Santa Fe 2021 and he
recently published an article on New Mexico Works Progress Administration (WPA) sites in El Palacio Magazine. He received his MFA in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2019.

Film-based, in-camera exposures combined with silver-gelatin prints are the foundation of my work. While this photographic process is rooted in the nineteenth century, it is the contemporary wet¬lands and forests — the watersheds — that serve predominantly as my backdrops. My silver-gelatin prints and collages are sequenced and in¬stalled into contemplative spaces such as exhibition walls, portfolios, and books. For me every step in this process is humbling because I continue to learn new things every time, which is good for my health and the community around me. Currently, she is working on an exhibition of silver gelatin photographs from recorded bird migrations that are detected through radar technology. My newest book is A Country No More: Rediscovering the Landscapes of John James Audubon. OPEN365.

Whimsical, iconic animals using drawing and painting.
The current series is called Animal Spirits.
The work has an animal head with a human body.
The images are influenced by Egyptian iconography and native dance regalia.
This series is spiritual to me with interrelations with the earth and animals.

"I love the way beads take one on a historical journey. For centuries man has created beautiful objects with the treasures that were found and traded. I have had the good fortune to have been able to collect many beautiful beads, talismans, and charms throughout the years. "
