Pallan, Nancy S.

Search for products by this Artist >>

Nancy Pallan began painting and drawing at an early age when her father, a professional photographer and artist, encouraged her abilities. She received private instruction and later earned her degree in art education. Although she practiced numerous techniques and worked in a variety of media, it is her detailed, realistic style of watercolor that makes Nancy’s wildlife and botanical studies so popular.  Nancy finds ample subject matter in her native northwestern Pennsylvania. Nearly 350 species of birds migrate here, and numerous wildflowers populate the local creek beds.  Her paintings often require several hundred hours of work since this intricate technique allows no shortcuts. Nancy’s beautiful results make her hard work well worth the effort.

Perry, Rachel

Rachel Perry graduated magna cum laude from California’s San Jose State University earning a Bachelor’s in graphic design with concentrations in illustration and photography. With employment in publishing, advertising and design her main focus centered on graphic design; and so for many years photography was only a side interest for shooting places of interest and friends’ portraits.
Since 2003 when Rachel was presented with her first digital camera, her photographic art consumes almost all of her creative time. Besides her expressions of beauty in flowers, scenes, and nature, Rachel also thrives with still-life concepts.  She creates a wealth of dramatic imagery, framing each shot into a pleasing composition to draw the viewer in. Some images are manipulated with filters and outlining to create photo-real designs.  Rachel’s passion to create beautiful imagery is fueled by her photographic talents and her desire to share them with others. Her images and designs can be viewed at under Photographic Art.

Piranesi, Giovanni Battista

Search for products by this Artist >>

Italian etcher, archaeologist, and architect, born in Venice but active for almost all his career in Rome, where he settled in 1740. In Venice he studied perspective and stage design and in Rome he achieved great popularity with his dramatically conceived etchings of the ancient and modern city- the Vedute- published from 1745 onwards. He often altered the scale of buildings to make them look even grander than they are in actuality – he conceived visions of Rome beyond what it boasted even in the meridian of its splendor and his work played a major role in shaping the popular mental image of the city. 
Piranesi produced numerous other plates of Roman antiquities and architectural details, by the age of forty he was famous throughout Rome and Europe. He was also known for a series of fantastic imaginary prisons. These highly original works were later claimed by the Surrealists as an anticipation of their principles. Although only one of Piranesi’s architectural designs was built (Sta Maria del Priorato, Rome, 1764-6), he was important as an architectural polemicist, most notably in his Della magnificenza ed architettura de’ Romani (1761), in which he championed the superiority of Roman architecture over Greek. Piranesi’s influence was felt not only by architects, but also by stage designers and painters but perhaps most of all on the literary mind. After his death in 1778, his etchings continued to be published and his son, Francesco Pietro; also a skilled artist, continued his work.

Roll, Dlynn

Dlynn Roll is a self-taught artist currently living in Central Florida. Her early years were spent in Texas and although she had a strong passion to create art she put that desire on hold to pursue a career as a hair stylist. After getting married and relocating to Florida she started to explore her creative interests. Most of her efforts have centered around abstract painting where she draws on life experiences like raising two sons, surviving cancer twice and going through a bone marrow transplant for inspiration. 
”I create my paintings with acrylic while sometimes adding subtle metallic. My subject matter varies from abstract to whimsy. I like to work intuitively from quick charcoal foundation lines to wet on wet manipulation of paint adjusting temperature and viscosity for effect. Pulling from childhood memories, current events and daily observations my artistic goal is to build a bridge between what I feel and what the viewer sees. Trusting in my faith in God I hope to share a positive “Aha” moment when my art is interpreted by my audience.”

The shape of the sky between the leaves of a tree is as much the subject as the tree itself. This foreground/background relationship is a continuing fascination for Bill.Through the Trees is inspired by Bill's fascination with not only the trees themselves, but the negative spaces that the leaves create. Bill has painted the sky as the foreground and allowed the trees to remain the amorphous shapes framing these areas.
