Laura Lloyd - Studio 17 — Foundry Art Centre Studio 17 About Me: My creativity springs from a sense of fascination with people and a delight in life. As I have done since childhood, I automatically notice faces as I imagine a fashion designer instinctively observes fabrics and cut as she goes about her daily life. Faces and color dominate both my oil painting and clay sculpture. In oils, I wield a palette of vivid colors to embody the spirit of the person and reveal her (or his) frame of mind in that exact moment.

English artist Tom Hardwidge has an unusual specialty: creating steampunk insects from old, inactive ammunition and pieces of clockwork. Each piece is so delicately and masterfully crafted that it is sometimes hard to even imagine what the recycled components might once have been, or to decipher where one part ends and where the next begins. Even harder to believe is that Hardwidge creates steampunk insects only as a hobby; he is a digital designer by day and gets time to work as a creative insect maker only at night.
Mind-Bending Body Painting Work by Craig Tracy by ibby Tue, 07/17/2012 - 03:11 Craig Tracy, a New Orleans native, has been a professional artist since the age of sixteen. Never satisfied with conventional contemporary art, Craig was always searching for a form of expression that would amplify his unique creative perspective eventually leading him to take his expertise in bodypainting into the realm of fine art. His work encompasses a bevy of techniques from traditional paintbrush for the majority of the work mixed with airbrush, finger-painting, sponging, splatter and dripping as part of the process as well. Often inspired by a specific body's shape or perhaps a unique pose, Craig takes inspiration from daily doses of culture, nature and intellectual constructs.
