Angel’s favorite works vary by subject. Some are conceptual such as “Ilmarinen's Journey to the Northland”, based on the Finnish folktales from the Kalevala. Other paintings are more realistic such as “The Coffee Connoisseur.” Many paintings reflect subjects close to her heart. Her love of nature comes through in many paintings. The sepia tones help to enhance the warm nostalgic feelings associated with her subjects.
Angel also loves to draw and paint with other mediums.
Her ultimate goal is to travel all over the world and painting her experiences.

Andy’s favorite works are the ones that reflect his Scandinavian heritage. For almost each exhibition, Andy would like to paint a Viking ship, Nordic symbols, or other images in reference to Scandinavia. His favorite painting from this genre is “Nordic Storm of Fury” which depicts a wind god blowing into the sail of a Viking ship.
Another idea that piques Andy’s interest is the little events in the
daily life. Leaves, coffee cups, mosquito bites and ants have
all been subjects of his paintings. He correlates the everyday occurrences with the coffee color, being a sepia tone, to old photos and memories. That strong connection creates a warm mood.
Aside from being a graphic designer, Andy likes to carve wooden figures out of branches, take photos of his Boston Terrier, Gidget, and read Nordic mythology.
His ultimate goal is to travel the world and paint his experiences, then come back to his gallery to showcase the works.
