Omar Ortiz, 1977 | Hyperrealist Figurative painter | Art in Detail

Mexican painter Omar Ortiz describes his work by saying, "Since I started painting I have always tried to represent things as real as I can. Sometimes I succeed and some others I don’t but it’s a fact that it is very difficult for me to do otherwise.
I enjoy the challenge of reproducing skin tones and it’s nuances under natural light, particularly in bright conditions. I like simplicity in my pieces since I believe that excesses make us more poor rather than rich".

Michael Tolleson,1957 | Autistic Savant Artist

He states that he feels trance-like during the actual act of painting, and is reluctant to take credit for the finished work as he feels the autism is actually the artist.

Philip Jackson, 1944 | Abstract /Impressionist sculptor | Public Art


"My sculptures are essentially an impressionistic rendering of the figure. Where you see the figure seemingly grow out of the ground, the texture resembles tree bark, rock, or lava flow. As the eye moves up the sculpture, the finish becomes gentler and more delicately worked, culminating in the hands and the mask, both of which are precisely observed and modeled".


Philip Henry Christopher Jackson is a renowned sculptor with an outstanding international reputation.
His ability to convey the human condition through skilful use of body language is legendary, producing figures both imposing and operatic in their narrative and presence, which are recognizable worldwide.

Mike Wise, 1973 | Plein Air painter


Mike Wise is an Impressionist oil painter best known for his landscapes. His approach to representational art is based in abstract design with loose brushwork and sculptural smears of the palette knife bringing movement and energy to a piece. The intended result is a painting rich in color and texture with a distinct three-dimensional feel that draws the viewer deep into the painted image.


Mike works in what was once an old barn that he converted to a modern art studio. The natural beauty that surrounds him at home on Whidbey Island, as well as having his family around and a lot of good music in the studio while he paints, influences his creative process. 

Wise is a member of Oil Painters of America (OPA) and the American Impressionist Society (AIS).
