Aaron Cathcart — Artist

Artist: Aaron Cathcart

I am humbled to share my story, my craft with the world. To take part in an age old  practice is to reach back thousands of years and learn from people who were doing exactly what I’m doing now. To add my own ideas and techniques to the ever-expanding body of wisdom, and to then give it away to future craftsmen just like myself is, truly meaningful. Wisdom is mankind’s greatest asset.

Abelardo Rodriguez — 3D Mandala Jewelry, Mandalas on Canvas, Acrylic, T-shirts Art

Artist: Abelardo Rodriguez

Focused on producing Art based on Sacred Geometry, we create a unique visual experience that is healing, educational and fun.

Mandalas engage the mind, align, quiet and center. They have been used by great civilizations to train the mind to perceive and see with a new understanding.

Many studies on the effects of classical music have proven that the mind and energetic bio-magnetic fields are impacted with this music. Mental clarity and senses are heightened and a person experiences a different type of consciousness. Composers whom use Sacred Geometrical principles in their music, like Mozart and Vivaldi, are typically associated with these effects.

Andi Catherine — Ceramics

Artist: Andi Catherine

Andi Catherine started pursuing a serious career in art in 2012, albeit her background in and motivation to create art transcends this. She spent 3 years in Mission Beach mastering the craft of henna, as well as honing her talent around town at various events. Constantly doodling, she confesses that sharpies are her favorite utensil. However, ceramics are the object of her passion. She invites her audience to follow suit through her creations: breaking down the walls of formality, disregarding the conventions of high art, and bringing artwork back to its roots—an intrinsic compulsion to create. She has sold her pieces from New Orleans to Canada and doesn’t plan to stop there. She remains active and dynamic in her hometown, putting her works on display at art shows, galleries, and any venue that will have her. She is also available for commissioned works. ExperiencingNow currently has a store front in Creative Crossroads at 502 University Ave Hillcrest, San Diego.

Bella Hollingworth — Watercolor

Artist: Bella Hollingworth


Bella Hollingworth believes, as did her Portuguese forebears, in exploring boundaries.

Having emigrated from the island of Madeira, Portugal, to Boston at the age of four, Ms. Hoflingworth soon established fine art as her career goal. As a high school student, she studied in a special program at The Boston Museum of Fine Art. She continued her education at the Massachusetts College of Art and the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut.  Following a teaching position in Connecticut, Bella moved to the Point Loma Community of San Diego. Attracted by the abundant flora and year round color of Southern California, she changed her career direction to nature and food illustration. Her nature drawings can be found in the award winning  Mission Trails Regional Park in San Diego and her watercolor illustrations in local and national publications.  She is familiar to Kensington and Talmadge residents as a painter of homes and family pets.

She is a member of The San Diego Watercolor Society where she has won several awards.

Benjamin Lavender — Artist

Artist: Benjamin Lavender

Benjamin Lavender was born and raised in Austin, Texas, an artistic and musical city. When he moved to Nashville, Tennessee, he earned his Associates of Fine Art from Watkins College of Art and Design, with first place in ceramics and second in sculpture during his exiting student show.  Lavender then moved to San Diego and received his BA in sculpture from San Diego State University in 2003. Benjamin quickly established himself in local group and solo shows in the surrounding area.  Lavender’s most recent exhibition is “Roots,”  solo exhibition at Oceanside Museum of Art. He has also made 2 appearances at San Diego Fine Arts Society’s annual, “Sculpture in the Gardens,” at the San Diego Botanic Gardens (formally Quail Botanical) in Encinitas, CA, displaying his latest large-scaled desert sculpture “Second Century,”  along with a permanent piece “Ocotillo,” that was purchased and donated to the gardens the previous year.  Lavender recently exhibited his largest sculpture to date, “Kite of Paradise,” in the annual “Kites Over Vista”, in Vista, CA, with an appearance in Vista Magazine as a featured artist.  Lavender has also participated in several other juried group shows including: the annual “Sculptures in the Street” in Mesa, AZ, “Art and Science” at 2nd City Council Gallery, Long Beach, CA, and “San Diego Art Prize: New Contemporaries,” at Simay Space, San Diego, CA,  and the Port Of San Diego Sculpture Show (now named Artwalk on the Bay) at the Embarcadero Marina Park North, San Diego. Benjamin has shown at Planet Rooth, San Diego, CA multiple times over the past 4 years during “Ray at Night,” San Diego’s longest running art-walk located in North Park. Other benefit shows Lavender has participated include, Jeans For Justice Benefit Auction, Mozart Foundation Benefit Auction, and Party With A Purpose, a New Orleans Benefit.  Benjamin Lavender has claimed San Diego as home, but continues to spread his artwork throughout surrounding areas.

Abstract Naturism is an appropriate way to describe my work, as well as industrially-organic.  Both define the outcome of mimicking nature through intense hours of manipulating metal, concrete, paint. and found or reclaimed objects into organically formed art.

Bradford Lynn — Artist

Artist: Bradford Lynn

Chula Vista native Bradford Lynn likes to say he started as a graffiti artist when he was 4, using red marker to revamp the walls of his family’s apartment (which led to their subsequent eviction). Lynn has since traded in the red marker for acrylics, galosh, ink and other mediums to create eerie images he hopes will inspire wonder.

“I like the mystery,” Lynn says. “That’s what draws me in. I just want people to follow their curiosity.”

Lynn drew his inspiration for the illustration on the cover of this week’s CityBeatfrom the song “Ghost” by Harvard, which led him to title the image “Ghost.” The lyric “I can feel it in the air” stirred Lynn to envision what ominous thoughts might actually look like. He wanted to create an image of the invisible insecurities people carry around.

“Your thoughts, negativity or your fear could be some sort of entity, almost like a spirit that follows you everywhere,” he explains.

Brent Hefner — Painter, tattoo artist

Artist: Brent Hefner

Brent Hefner began his love for art when he was a young boy. He was given a golden ticket and allowed inside a large beer brewing factory and led around by a strange man who liked to sing and dance with little people who sang songs making fun of other contest winners. He discovered at a young age the power of art but since singing and dancing really wasn’t his thing, he escaped and hid in Northern California.
He developed a love for drawing and painting and would draw pictures of skulls and demons while passing notes to girls in class. “Do you like me? Yes… No… Maybe….” This love for drawing developed into a full blown enterprise for Brent drawing pictures on notes for other people in school to pass off as their own.

By age 13 Brent was a full blown hundred-aire and was on top of the world until a girl went public with one of his notes and Brent was forced into art rehab. While in rehab 15 other girls came forward and snitched that Brent had been sending them art covered notes too. This forced Brent into hiding once again only to surface 10 years later….
In San Diego.
Part of his rehab was Brent was no longer allowed to make art on paper so he switched up and started tattooing people. Come in and meet with Brent as part of his lifelong battle with art addiction. Remember every little bit helps and you are not just doing it for art, or for Brent, you are doing it for Corey

Brian “Monk” Rojas — Paintings

Artist: Brian “Monk” Rojas

Brian “Monk” Rojas is a San Diego based artist recently relocated from Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. Growing up amongst the city’s murals and graffiti pieces, he has sought to combine his love for contemporary styles of urban art with ancient and classical traditions. While his work incorporates a wide range of media, including oil, acrylic, stencil, spray paint, and printmaking, Rojas explores a variety of themes. He addresses issues of religion, identity, life and death, and most recently the balance of ancient and indigenous traditions with contemporary culture.

Many of his works are produced on found objects such as scrap lumber, pieces of furniture, and even reclaimed canvases “when pickings are good.” A habit formed from a childhood of dumpster-diving and alley-picking with his mother and siblings, his use of trash-picked materials has morphed over the years. What originated as an inability to afford canvases and other art supplies has become a conceptual questioning of concepts of value and “high” versus “low” art. When interacting with the discarded items, transformed with striking images, the viewer must question what exactly gives art value.

Britton Neubacher — Living Walls

Artist: Britton Neubacher

Britton Neubacher spent her formative years on the island of Oahu where the people’s reverence for their land instilled a radical respect for nature and the power of place.  It was during a lengthy career in crisis work that the balancing power of plants upon stressful environments was made apparent. This growing desire to create “sanctuary with style” brought mindful gardening together with high design and thus Tend Living was born. Britt’s passion for creating transformative green spaces has powered an exciting and unexpected journey in entrepreneurialism, collaboration, and re-connection with self and Source. She resides in San Diego with her husband and a chatty cat named Cow, and is always up for a dance party.

Cassandra Schramm — Artist

Artist: Cassandra Schramm

I am from Southern California, but i recently moved back to San Diego after 7 years of living in Boston. I have been painting my whole life but I have been a muralist for over 18 years.

My paintings are as random as my life. I am inspired by everything around me but my usual subject matter is eyes. The reflection and human connection associated with eyes. I have always found it hard to look someone in the eyes when I am talking to them. I have tried to be better at this as the years pass. When you make eye contact with another person, you let down your guard, it is growing vulnerability the longer the contact lasts. There are many theories on eye contact while talking, but I notice that there is a limit, most people must look away off and on, while talking.

Christy Pepper Dawson — Artist

Artist: Christy Pepper Dawson

Hola. I’m Christy Pepper Dawson – an illustrator and painter of macabre misfits and whimsical worlds.

I was born an only child in a small town in Nova Scotia. Growing up, I tended to bond more with insects and imaginary creatures rather than children my age.
Little has changed since then. I still find most of my inspiration from these beings. Of course dreams, music, fashion, photos, nature, comics, films and gummy bears also influence what I create.

Daniel Jaimes — Paintings, Pencil, Cartoons

Artist: Daniel Jaimes

Thanks to a little known space fantasy film called Star Wars which premiered in May 1977…it was by far the most amazing and Epic movie I’ve ever seen!  As for this 10 year old native kid at that time…I was totally blown away by the special effects which inspired me to pick up a pencil  and began drawing spaceships, characters and battle scenes from the movie which seemed to come natural at such a young age.

Present Day: My work is now recognized and appreciated by many at every exhibit I show, from Comic Con to people’s homes, coffee shops, wineries, restaurants, respectable galleries, beautiful hotels, live music concert halls and most of all…Charity events, because giving back is priceless!

Demetrios Christo — Digital images printed on canvas

Artist: Demetrios Christo

I have always been intrigued by the art of photography: Capturing that specific moment in time. My interest in the photographic arts started as a young teenager with a simple Pentax film camera, and I was anointed the photographer of the family. That position provided me opportunities to take pictures of family vacations to lands far and wide as well as recording gatherings of family and friends. With the advent of digital photography I have expanded my passion for photo imagery and in 2010 I launched with my signature imagery of a trip back to my homeland, Greece, after a 14 year hiatus. From that point, I have expanded my repertoire to include imagery of nature, architecture, industrial wastelands,landscapes, people and animals as well as diving strongly into the brilliance and depth of HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography.  I find myself capturing anything that interests meand  I try to stay true to the art of photography with minimal post editing. I feel that I am providing the viewer an experience that hopefully will make them think more about what they feel the image is saying to them rather than me telling them what Ithink it states; therefore breaking rules and allowing a participation, if you will, into my world as I see it through my lens.

Elizabeth Zaikowski — Mandala inspired works

Artist: Elizabeth Zaikowski

Elizabeth Zaikowski is a graduate of San Diego State University with a degree in Art Education. Over the years, she has been showing and teaching art in public schools and museums.

Elizabeth’s work portrays themes that originate in the spiritual character of the mandala and the world of magical fantasy and illusion. Mandalas are symbolic of the universe and its eternal character, which is to provide symmetry and balance. In much of her work, communication, connection and participation with nature’s cosmic world order are inherent themes. Her paintings are a reflection of the symmetrical nature of the universe.

Emmanuel Saltis — Artist

Artist: Emmanuel Saltis

Art to me is imagination, it is life, the memories and the most creative way to express ones feelings and peoples thoughts and to express them widely open so everyone can see, admire, and even judge.  Art makes our lives infinitely rich, stimulates different parts of our brain and gives us a way to be creative, to express the feelings that words cannot describe, to give a form of “reality” to your dreams.  Stop and stare at an art piece. Think as you used to think when you were a child. When your mind was full of colors and smiles. See the life now? ~Emmanuel

An autodidact in ceramics, I was introduced to clay at the Genesee Co-op Communiversity in Rochester, New York in 1972.  For the most part, my work is wheel thrown; stoneware is my medium. While confining myself to the rigors of the potter’s wheel, my personal challenge is produce work which contains strong organic elements. .

In recent years, I have been exploring the wide world of hand built ceramics. The results are wedge and box shaped plant holders, along with the beginnings of sculptural forms.

Artist: Ginny Kim
What started as a creative outlet for artist Ginny Kim to embrace the imperfections of life, Speckled Bliss has transformed into an at-home design studio focused on sharing the benefits of art, nutrition, and yoga to allow every speckle of happiness to fulfill your mind, body, and soul.
Through her illustrations and plant-based recipe experiments, Ginny strives to make a connection with individuals with a thirst for knowledge to elevate themselves to their highest potential through healthy living.
When Ginny isn’t collaborating with rad eco-conscious individuals (yoga teachers, wellness entrepreneurs, musicians, and even start-up companies to name a few), she meditates her way into creating new artwork that invokes consciousness with an organic modern twist. Yoga, surfing, rock climbing, paddle boarding, and hiking are also key ingredients that add to her happiness in San Diego, CA.

A dynamic blend of art and music, Greg Lloyd’s Kinetic Collage may best be
described as video “painting”.
Born from the free-spirited rock & roll light shows of the 60s, Kinetic
Collage is now an all digital mix of compelling abstract visuals combined
with customized imagery and performed with a unique soundtrack of
underground electronica music.

Whether softly painting amorphous forms, or flashing rhythmically to a
syncopated beat, Kinetic Collage will transform its space into an exciting
multi-dimensional experience.

Gretchen Smith — Paintings

Artist: Gretchen Smith

My philosophy is that art is the greatest expression of faith.  Gretchen M. Smith has been producing work professionally for nearly 20 years. Typically her work is categorized as abstract expressionist paintings but she works in many media and basically follows God’s lead. Currently she is working on installations and group projects exploring the dynamics of the human interactions of the artists participating in the projects. She seeks to exhibit her work in venues that encourage cultural and religious gaps to be bridged through faith-based abstract visual art. Ms. Smith is interested in pursuing large scale kinetic public art projects that integrate water, video, and non-traditional mural materials in venues that reach large demographically diverse groups.

Artist: J. I. Anichowski

I was born and raised in Sin City, Las Vegas, Nevada. Through my schooling there I came to the realization that all I wanted to do in life was paint and create. So I packed up and moved to southern California, where I have continued my learning, painting, and creating.

I’m inspired by life. The works of Salvador Dali, Micheal Parks, and the wonderful San Diego local artists I’ve come to personally know help to shape my vision. I find my paintings in the forms of the clouds, the bubbles in my bath, and in the playfulness of the creatures of nature.

Jackie Stenzel — hand crafted jewelry

Artist: Jackie Stenzel

When I’m not teaching yoga or working at my restaurant job, I like to sit down and relax with some cool jams, a big glass of coconut water (or coffee), and go into a deep jewelry-making meditation.  When the mood is right, I like to drift off into my creative zone for hours of end.  The act of creating and making things with my hands is so satisfying,…it’s a way of letting my creative energy flow, and finding expression through color and form.  Sometimes I will be listening to African drum beats or Hawaiian ukulele, and the music will inspire a more colorful palate of mixed stones together to create some rather funky pieces! Other times, I will play some Indian music or Native American flute, which creates a more meditative jewelry making process.

The jewelry pieces I create are a collection of unique and one-of-a-kind handmade items. I like to keep mixing it up; with new materials and stones, different techniques and methods of making the pieces. The styles are diverse and ever-changing. This is what keeps me making jewelry, – the shear freedom to make whatever I’m inspired to in that moment makes me feel so ALIVE! I love that my creative work can also bring beauty and happiness to someone else out there!

Jessica Johnson — Artist

Artist: Jessica Johnson

Born and raised in San Diego, Jessica has been creating art for as long as she could pick up a crayon. Art has always played a large part in her life. Being a fashion design major, her love for fashion still constantly lingers over into her artwork.

Currently she is teaching art courses for children, teens and adults for several companies in San Diego County. Teaching has given her the opportunity to combine two of her passions: art & aiding people with their natural talents. She is also co-founder of the San Diego-based art collective Aesthetigeist as well as the founder of Hidden San Diego, which is a website that showcases all hidden, haunted and amazing spots in San Diego!

Photography is equally important to her as it gives her the opportunity to showcase the world through her own eyes. Currently she is the fashion photographer and stylist for Rico Knits as well as the photojournalist for her Hidden San Diego website.

Jim Yuran — Zedism

Artist: Jim Yuran

In 1995, Yuransky galvanized a timely new aesthetic balance between the material, technological and virtual world’s that co-exist in today’s digital age…thus Zedism was born.  Yuransky’s art form is a glimpse into the “virtual” world of molecular aesthetics, scientific order, technology information systems and human/environment integration. It is his hope that Zedism is a new language helping to support and develop a robust human nervous system for the coming millennium’s challenges.

Jonathan Wenner was born in Manhasset, New York. He grew up in both Elmont, New York and Newfoundland, Pennsylvania. The urban versus country atmospheres sculpted into multi faceted content. His education has been gained from experience, a few teachers and the privilege of great peers met sporadically all over the United States. He has painted murals in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, Chicago, San Diego and specializes in custom helmets, bikes, cars, tattoos, portraits, and pretty much anything artistic he will find a way to make it happen.

Julianne Ricksecker — Artist

Artist: Julianne Ricksecker

Julianne B. Ricksecker portrays realistic landscape imagery in pastel, monotype, intaglio printmaking (etching and collagraph), and watercolor painting. Art by Julianne has been exhibited in local, regional and international competition. She is a member of the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, the Pastel Society of San Diego, and  the San Diego and North County Printmakers.

“Inspired and delighted by the beauty of landscape, I try to express the awe and wonder I feel through a variety of media on paper.  I am fascinated with the effects of light on the colors and textures of the landscape, and with the rhythms and patterns of the shapes therein.   I wish to evoke in the viewer some of the pleasure, peace and joy I feel when experiencing and contemplating our natural world in the form of the landscape. ”

     Julianne’s imagery comes from places she has visited, such as waterfalls in Yosemite, vistas of Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and desert scenes of Anza Borrego.   Look for imagery from her recent trip to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

Julio Pompa Frizza — Digital media with traditional art techniques

Artist: Julio Pompa Frizza

I am an artist and illustrator based in San Diego, California. I work in various media: oil, acrylic, ink, pastel, pencil in combination with the computer as a creative tool.

Combining digital media and traditional art techniques, I construct a new visual language. This new expression is the base for social commentary, beautiful landscapes, erotic posters, intricate patterns and much more.

The translation of the digital image into archival limited edition prints is, I believe, a new way to experience visual art. The artist’s marks on the paper, done with traditional media, are filtered and processed through technology, and then printed on archival paper. The full circle process therefore, gets recorded on paper as digital impressions.

Artist: Kathleen Mitchell

I make things, I always have

Like many other object makers, I am a collector of things, an assembler, an arranger.
The techniques I employ to make my work are fraught with danger.
Molten or sharp: glass and metal can burn you, cut you, scar you.
The physical aspect of working, the sweat, the dance, the communion with your partner or your team… Its earthy and difficult.
I like that

KimCHI — Cosplay Outfits

Artist: KimCHI

KimCHI (aka Linda Nguyen) is a San Diego native that grew up around Adams Avenue. Surrounded by several artists in her family, the expressive talent came naturally for her, and she has been creating since she was a child.

Her life experiences are her inspiration and her canvases capture your attention with their large scale and intricate detail. She also finds inspiration in the beauty and allure of sex and the female form. She displays the juxtaposition of dangerous beauty by adorning her girls with guns and ammo.

When KimCHI is not painting, she spends time designing costumes to cosplay for Comic Con International: San Diego. All components of her costumes are made by hand – she paints, forms, and sculpts everything from masks, weapons, and accessories. It’s a grueling process of trial and error, but the end results make everything worthwhile. She has been featured on several costume websites and even made an appearance on The Colbert Report. Eventually she would like to travel to other conventions in different cities to showcase her passion for cosplay.

While I have always been visually driven and artistically inclined, it wasn’t until I took an art history class in college that I was pushed to create a piece of art based on inspiration from another artist.

I discovered a fascination with this process and an ability to recreate images in new found ways.  My goal is to sell pieces at affordable prices so that people can enjoy my art and I can enjoy making more!

Mae Crauder-Davis — Artist

Artist: Mae Crauder-Davis

I discovered my Layered Acrylic Collage technique by a series of happy accidents. Using acrylic mediums, I build the material with layers of medium, a texture layer, and a thin layer of metal.  When I put more layers of acrylic mediums over the metals, colors come up spontaneously.  I seal them with acrylic varnish, and the colors never change again.  I have very little control over the colors that come up from the metal leaf during the drying process. The material can be folded, rolled and cut, making a variety of artworks possible. Working compositions with a limited palette has been a challenge.  The combination of organic textures and metals has a timeless look that I find exciting.

Mary Neal-Bulow — watercolor

Artist: Mary Neal-Bulow

I am a native San Diegan and have always loved expressing myself through art throughout my life.  While my sons were very young in the mid to late 1970’s I kept active painting murals in private homes, churches and daycare facilities.  As they grew and family activities took priority to what was mostly a hobby I put my artistic career on hold for many years.  Now that my sons are grown with families of their own and retirement has afforded me the luxury of exploring a renewed interest in art I feel very fortunate.  I am excited about being able to follow through creatively with many of the ideas that have haunted my imagination for years.   As I engage in finding opportunities to study under local artists I feel blessed San Diego has a wealth of some remarkably talented artists.

I have been juried in to many shows around San Diego over the past 4 years in local galleries, libraries, synagogues and San Diego civic Center.

My main focus currently is watercolor with eclectic subject matter.  My on-going pursuit is honing my skills in watercolor portraits.

I also create and design a humorous line of greeting cards to lift the spirits of my elderly friends in our geriatric set.  I will be marketing them soon under the name Mymary’s Art.  My motto and logo on my business cards; “No matter your age, you can always be young at art!”

Monty Montgomery — Artist

Artist: Monty Montgomery

Monty Montgomery began exhibiting his work in 2002. Born and raised in Virginia, Montgomery loved black lines and bright colors at a very young age and was influenced by his mother who was a kindergarten teacher.  Montgomery’s use of “stars” in his work comes from years of sitting with his Grandfather as he pointed out constellations through the dark, small town, Virginia skies.

“Almost every single one of my pieces has a specific meaning to it, a vibe, a feeling or message that I want you to take in and walk away with,” Montgomery says. “I not only want to hit you with my vision of color and lines, but even more so with the message within each creation. My job is to create art that makes you feel.”

Montgomery recently combined forces with J Feather, another San Diego based Artist and the duo formed KREASHUN in 2012. KREASHUN is a combination of both Artist’s visions and talents coming together to create one lucid dream of experience upon interior and exterior walls around the globe.

Artist: Nathan Schnell

This work is made fast… letting mind work through pen, in a style that reacts the controlled chaos within the borders of the panel… taking influence from the late great Willem de Kooning, and modern artist such as Anthony Lister, Jay Ryan… Having an overactive mind is beneficial here…simply start with white panel and pencil, allow your mind and hand to move freely without scrutiny… once the page is full, you may take control once again to react and analyze… and esh out any recognizable imagery… This allows you to have some control over the mess you have created… I do this because it brings me joy, as I hope it does for you.
