Aleksei (Alex) Saunders was born in Port Moody, British Columbia. Growing up on the coast near the then untamed forests of the Pacific Northwest gave Alex a strong appreciation of nature and of natural beauty. With his mother painting and his father sculpting and carving the artistic side was well nourished in Alex’s household. An interest in nature and animals overpowered any desire to formally study the arts, however working on the conservation of Madagascar’s freshwater fishes led Alex back to the camera. His photographic images span a range of subjects from nature and urban to wildlife and humanity. In addition, Alex also enjoys photographing live music events because of the energy and passion so readily shown by musicians.
Raised in the rolling hills of middle Tennessee, contemporary landscape painter Kelly Schurger spent much of her time growing up doodling as she explored her love for art. After deciding that her future was with art, Kelly received formal training in both Tennessee and Illinois. Having lived in some beautiful and some bland places, her inspiration is whatever the surroundings may be. These days so much of our lives are tied up in details, that too often we miss out on some of the more simplistic beauty that surrounds us… be it a cloudy day, a grove of trees, or the setting of the sun. In each piece Kelly uses a unique blend of color and texture to set her landscapes apart from the masses, reminding people that beauty is always around us, no matter our surroundings.
