Debbie Korbel make art because it is fun. You might say, "So do six-year-olds," and then I might say, "I know you are, but what am I?" And then we might both stick our tongues out--anyway you get the idea. Or maybe making art is a bit of a compulsion, channeled into a healthier behavior than excessive hand-washing or collecting a giant ball of string. Or perhaps it is like an instinctual drive. Food. Sex. Art. Anyway, luckily I became a sculptor, and not a drug addict or a career criminal.
Karin Swildens Making drawings was her first love but she started carving wood sculptures some 30 years ago, soon followed by the discovery of clay. Creating ceramic, high-fired and stoneware sculptures is her way of existing. She expresses herself and lives our common experiences through sculptures of women, horses and fantasy-mythology as well as carved eggs and architectural doors. Her art-deco pieces are a remnant of her european background and her erotic sculptures are full of humor and tenderness.

Kaye Freeman's work has been described as an audacious realisation of colour, line, form and philosophy. Her abstract drawings in paint are firmly grounded in a life time spent in the study of natural form and technical skills, developed at art school as well as her background in theatre and film. Formative years in Hong Kong and Japan continue to play a vital role in her aesthetics and cultural referencing. The sheer scale, palpable energy and sensuality of her recent work is at first confronting yet, as the lines and forms remind the viewer of subconscious organic forms the images become familiar and affirming in their exuberance.
William Sweetlovewas born in 1949 in Oostende, Belgium.
William Sweetlove thrives on the superficial, placing it in razor-sharp contrast to the sententious. Through a number of variations on the same theme he creates friction between the artificial and the substantial, completely obliterating the boundaries between toy and work of art. His world is a world in which poodles, giraffes and penguins are rendered into artifacts which unite Dadaism, surrealism and pop art in a common post-modernistic synthesis.

Valerie Von Sobel, I won't weary you with all that I did and was, the many hats I wore, but would like to tell you about now and me in the now, as an artist.
I see art and beauty everywhere… always have.
Ex Nihilo~ (out of nowhere) my eyes opened to the magic of assemblage & mixed media. It is a gift I am very grateful for, as I can to bring to it my understanding of space, shape, balance, texture and even some drama. The aged wood and gilt of a refined relic, the cool ivory, the metal encrusted embroidery combine with machine age steel in a surprisingly original way.
You turn a bat upside down, and it becomes the shoe of a courtier. The vantage point shifts with every new component, and it is limitless what elements unite effectively. When an assemblage piece is completed I always envision the room that it would complement.
I keep in mind what Salvador Dali said: "There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad."
I find discernment most important. Both the artists and the collector need to experience the WOW moment. I hope that you will judge my work kindly, as it will have gone through my harsh filter by the time you see it.
