NH artist, Janna Hartley, has been drawing and painting for many years. Trained in traditional illustration and possessing a BA in Illustration from Syracuse University, Janna works in a variety of mediums including pencil, ink, pastel, and watercolor and acrylic paints. Subjects of the work range from landscape to portrait. However, Janna prefers to create works that tell a story or illustrate an idea or concept.
While having put down the brush in exchange for a computer, an MBA in Marketing, and a job as a graphic/web designer, Janna is again finding time to pursue her first love. Currently, she is exploring how to combine traditional illustration into website design and creating digital illustrations.
Keri McAndrews is a local photographer who grew up in Derry and now resides in nearby Dracut, Massachusetts with her husband Greg. Keri's interest in photography developed quickly ever since she purchased her first camera as a teenager 15 years ago. She loves all types of photography, but scenic and landscape subjects are her favorites. She constantly enjoys learning new photo techniques and is currently participating in a photo-a-day challenge. Keri daylights as an accountant when she''s not busy taking photos.
My name is Aimee Cozza, and I am a self-proclaimed multi-talented artist. I dabble with many mediums and many different styles, always changing, never quite the same twice. I am an illustration major at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH. I have high aspirations for where I'm going and how I want to change the art scene. I create my own self-published novels and graphic novels, and do my own design and web work.
Each picture and piece has its own significant meaning, be it something more specifically to look into, or something as simple as practice and study; each one means at least something to me.
I can only hope that you, as a viewer, enjoy the artwork as much as I enjoyed making it, being able to hold up a finalized piece, whether it be through anger, happiness, or tears, and smiling after placing that final detail.
I personally want to thank you for looking at my artwork. I believe that every new person who looks at my artwork is a new opportunity to reach to someone, to speak to someone through artwork I've possibly created for myself, but want to share at least a small piece, if not the whole piece, with you.
And in you is where it all lies. You, as the viewer, are the most important part. What the piece meant to me when I made it means nothing. What the piece conveys to you, how it reaches to you, and what it says when it whispers in your ear is what's important. You're important, and what you think, what you see, what you wonder and wish and hope is important.
I hope you enjoy my artwork, and I hope you let it take you on a journey, and let it speak to you in its own way.
And I, personally, want to thank you for listening to it.
