DoAn

Born in North Kingstown, RI, 1970, DoAn found artistic expression early in life. As early as he can remember, he found himself fascinated by birds, animals, and the natural world. But, as he grew older he struggled with finding something to communicate outside of creating pretty nature pictures. The turning point for him came in 2002, when he took Buddhist precepts and was given the dharma name DoAn, which means “Way of Peace”. As a result of his years studying and practicing Buddhism, he was able to find his true path in art--it is for that reason he signs his work under his Buddhist name DoAn.

DoAn’s work is influenced by Western and Eastern artistic traditions. He often combines new materials and techniques with the traditional, to create work that exists somewhere between the borders of the West and East. Meditation is often an important element in his work, with many pieces completed only after periods of sitting meditation. His art, at times, may seem varied in subject and style, but his pieces are all steps toward finding that balance between West and East. The subject of his art is inspired by the natural world and various mythologies and cultures. He has had solo and group shows in New York City, Cincinnati and Bellevue, KY. His work is in private collections throughout the US and in the UK and Asia. You can see more at his website:

Laurie Corzett/libramoon

is seeking clarity, wisdom, and ecstatic union with visions and art. She is always moving into new (or resurrected) projects, including Emerging Visions, visionary art ezine; Seers and Seekers Yahoo Group; The Healing Dance Network Yahoo Group; Visionary Arts and Minds Tribe; anthologies of her writings; a leisurely emerging novel working title: Something Sacred; a quickly evolving (envisioned as) graphic novel (anyone want to do the graphics?), Acts of Desolation: http://www.gather.com/viewArticle.jsp?articleId=281474977172809
as well as her Flash Utopian Fiction Project: series of flash fiction pieces around a federation of diverse villages each working out their methods of community life -- little dramatic impacts illustrating creative solutions to social problems (temporily shelved due to lack of collaborators).

Anthony Santella

My work explores the spiritual in a modern context, addressing themes of love, loss and suffering via elements as diverse as medieval religious painting, classic children's book illustration, and ritual wooden sculpture from many cultures. Through art, I want to understand how to find meaning in dreams and visions while staying genuinely involved and in love with the people and reality that so often seem to desecrate and betray those dreams.

Above all, I care about creating a sense of wonder, a suggestion of
the beauty and mystery of life. For better or worse, I don't think
visual art can teach, but it can tell stories that remind people of
the important things in life: hope, wonder, love. I can not make a
viewer share my world view, but I can suggest a theme, a story. I try to pass along the spark of wonder that inspired me and allow the viewer to complete the story and take their own lesson.



Jude Cowell

Lifelong artist, Jude Cowell, currently works primarily in oil and watercolor pencil on paper. This Georgia native's drawings may be viewed online at Cosmic Persona Designs Art Gallery, and at Dreamyfish Art, where postcards and limited edition prints are available upon request. Cosmic Persona Designs is a collection of archetypal feminine images, cosmic-visionary art (some from an earlier series, Children's World), children's art, and more. An astrological influence is apparent, for Jude has been a serious astrology novice for 10 years, and is writer and publisher of the Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington. Dreamyfish Art is a gallery of Saturn's realism--botanically-drawn tropical fish portraits--blended with Neptune's watery, illusory qualities--a combination which neatly describes the artist's natal Sun Capricorn-Moon Pisces personality. Fish dream, too, and here you may have a sneak peek into their most favorite and secret dream locations undersea at Dreamyfish Art. Several moons ago, Jude was an art student at Atlanta School of Art (now College of Art) on Peachtree Street, and even now you may detect a Fashion Illustration, Layout, and Design influence in her work, especially in the Cosmic Persona Designs collection. You never know what might show up at Cosmic Persona, but you are cordially invited to stop by when you can...and remember that fish dream, too!

Wishing Peace, Love, and Art to All,
Jude Cowell

Antero Alli

I don't call myself an artist. The self-proclaimed "artist" is a modern-day delusion; that title is for others to decide. I see myself more as an accidental agitator. I do not agitate on purpose. My agitating is more like a gut response to being agitated. I am agitated by the soul-crushing mediocrity parading as "Art" and produced by any individual, group, organizaton or Society of Spectacle still wallowing in its own sorry loss of imagination. I wish to agitate more poetic imagination, the chief inlet for Soul in the Hypermedia Era.

Joey Masciotra

The art work i do is based on my personal study of inanimate objects, life forms, color and ambiguous patterns. I find meaning in my work, usually personal; but i do some commercial work based on themes. My current goal is to produce all of my drawings into paintings depicting surreal or abstract scenarios. The drawings i have collected since 1990 all are dying to be painted. Single imagery seems to be more aesthetic, however I have taken on the task of involving the drawings together to create more sync. Enjoy

Kala Snowflower

Pure Joy is the title of my latest book of poems and this best describes the state of being I have been living in as I explore a life of close community living, open hearted loving and getting in stronger touch with the core of my strength, my beauty and my compassion. I am a Reiki teacher and practitioner and find that my work as a healer and poet flow from the same source and inform one another to create a strong and flowing practice of staying in touch with my feelings, the feelings of others and the energy of the earth, sky and cosmos... I am grateful to be able to continue and deepen my understanding of life and love through my Art and artful living. I have started my next phase of living and loving which is reflected in the new poems I share here. You can reach me at kala@happyvalleyreiki.com. I would love to hear from you about my poetry, the healing arts,or to share in awe over the Beauty of this sweet Earth.

Long’s cover art appears on publications by HarperCollins, PS Publishing, iBooks, Pocket Books, Delirium Books, Ballistic Media, Swimming Kangaroo, and others as well as in his 70-plus technical books.

Talk-show host Victor Thorn named Long as one of the three “best graphic artists in the entire world.”

David Jones

was born in Wheatcroft, KY, in 1955. He is a product of the turbulent 50’s and 60’s in the rural southern United States. After the death of his parents he relocated to Indianapolis, Indiana where he lived with his sister and was introduced to poetry during his high school years. Also at this time, he began the first of many sexual and interpersonal relationships with white women. In that regard, he believes that everyone wants what they are not supposed to have. His work is sometimes angry, sad and poignant, but always true to his life experiences. He has been featured at many open mics and has competed in regional and national poetry slams. He has been a featured reader at the Seattle erotic art festival for the last 3 years. He is a single father of a 20 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. He has worked many different jobs in the manufacturing sector. He currently works as an electroplater in the defense and aerospace industry. His poetry is an attempt to chronicle the life of a working black man in modern day America. It explores the darker side of life, sex, interpersonal relationships and race. It is reminiscent of writers like Mumia Abu Jamal and Bell Hooks. He performs regularly with a dinner theater troupe called Little Red Studio here in Seattle, WA (http://www.littleredstudioseattle.com/) where he reads poetry and writes pieces for other performers and skits. He is a generative artist, that is to say, all of his works are original. He now lives in Covington, WA with his girlfriend, her son, his son, two dogs and a cat.

Ronny Haklay

The Art of Light
a citizen of wonderland, playing with magic
and trying to create a more beautiful world as in my paintings..
I do it by putting intentions into the paintings while making them.
This is how magic is done...
The results show in the effect on the viewers;
the paintings have effects of heart opening, and heart beat slow downs; each painting is a portal into another possible dimension
where life is more relaxed and soul is very comfortable.
My vision is to touch a critical mass of people, and by this to create the big magic of a collective consciousness shift,
the kind that might make reality stretch and become something else....

Help us get this light everywhere and into everyone and overcome the darkness...
