Special Feature: Sunday Stroll in the Gallery: Featuring Jane Fade Merrick

Sunday Stroll in the Gallery is a feature to bring new eyes to artists. Welcome to the Gallery and enjoy the view. Let’s meet Jane Fade Merrick

Ashes of the Phoenix is a contemporary romance which tells about life, love, ha, e, troubles and music! Meet Fade, a girl who lives a life left on her own, struggling constantly to survive in a society that swallows everyone who doesn’t keep up with its pace; her only company is a kitchen knife and a scar embedded in her leg that reminds her every day of who she is and why she is there. Once, while she’s stealing in a supermarket, she meets Jag, a boy with a disturbing appearance who convinces her to join him in his weird plan: to become the main sponsor of one of the most successful bands of the moment, of which he’s a huge fan, and – apparently – he doesn’t lack the money to do so. She allows herself to be convinced to meet Nef, a typical playboy, who eventually will learn that the world isn’t all at his feet like he thought…

Ashes of the Phoenix contains several illustrations done by the author and other artists, which complete the imaginary world that it tells.

This romance has been published in Italian, currently is getting translate and it will be released in English at the beginning of the new year. Still, you can follow the FB page to know previews, curiosity, participate in surveys and giveaways. https://www.facebook.com/theashesofthephoenix/

Author’s bio

Hello! This is Jane Fade Merrick, the author. I use a pen name to keep my identity secret because there’s not much to tell about me. I am from Italy and I wanted to make my romance international (it’s going to be translated by a professional staff, so don’t mind my eventual English mistakes).

I believe in self-publishing. I consider it not a simple “escaping way” for all these people who didn’t get a contract in a regular publishing house, but a real conscious way for a writer to make his story available to everyone. For this reason, I tried to write my book in the most perfect way I could. I hope that all the people who chose this way of publishing would do the same.

Special Feature: Sunday Stroll in the Gallery: featuring Kyra Leary

Sunday Stroll in the Gallery is a feature to bring new eyes to artists. Welcome to the Gallery and enjoy the view. Let’s meet Kyra Lyra.

My name is Kyra Leary and I live visually. I am not a professional photographer. I snap on impulse, capturing whatever pleases my eye or makes my heart skip a beat. In my world, a sunset is a sunset not a “colorful spectacle of light and hope”. It’s a photo and if it’s done right, it needs no description. All my nondescript photography can be viewed at www.kyraleary.com.
In addition to photography, I am the author of the Earth No. 105 series by Ame Terra. The series is a mix of science fiction, dystopian, paranormal romance. In short, a mutt. A lovable mix with something for everyone. Want to see the lovable mix for yourself? Everything Earth No. 105 can be found at https://kyraleary.com/www-whoisleader-com/.
In additional to photography and writing, I enjoy traveling, reading Indie novels, spoiling my son and dog and splurging on expensive wine. Read my “weird and witty” book reviews at https://kyraleary.com/book-reviews/.

Special Feature: Sunday Stroll in the Gallery! Featuring Nancy Quinn

Welcome to Sunday Stroll in the Gallery. Our first gallery artist is World known Wildlife Artist, Nancy Quinn. Take a stroll through the gallery and meet Nancy and enjoy a sampling of her amazing art pieces.

Bio

Nancy has always been interested in art and nature.  She was born in Southfield, Michigan, and later moved to Florida, working her way through college in Jacksonville.  After graduation, she worked in conservation law enforcement as a Duty Officer for the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission.  Her interests in painting and nature eventually led to a career in wildlife art.  Lacking extensive formal training, she believes her artistic ability was an inborn gift from her father, the noted artist Boyd A. Zimmer II.

Early in her career, Nancy was presented with 2nd and 3rd place awards in the World Wildlife Art Championships.  Her work is internationally known and found in galleries, state museums, and private collections.

Education efforts are important to Nancy.  She created T-shirt and jewelry designs for the Florida Wildlife Federation.

She was commissioned by the State of New Jersey to create the limited edition art print Nature’s Legacy.  The print commemorates the centennial celebration of the State’s Division of Fish, Game, and Wildlife.  The funds raised from the sale of the prints act as tuition grants for college students interested in biology or conservation law enforcement.

Nancy strives for accuracy and realism in her work and continues to strengthen her commitment to furthering conservation awareness.  After spending over six years in the capital region while her husband served at the Pentagon, Nancy and her family now joyfully reside in rural Montana where she continues to create new works.

Thoughts from my easel,

I believe art has a purpose other than decorating our walls.  I think it can touch our minds and our hearts.  When I sit down to create art, I think about how best to give an animal or bird a soul and how to foster an emotion on canvas, paper, or precious metal.  If I can have a positive effect in someone’s life, then my work has served an important purpose.  I remember a particular story of a woman who lived alone.  She told me of the forlornness she felt each day sitting by herself for every meal.  After she framed and hung up my barn owl limited edition print in her dining room, she noticed how lifelike the image was and so gave it a name.  As time passed she began to talk to it and soon she no longer dreaded mealtime because she felt as though she had some company.   It is a true blessing for me when clients write and tell me how my art has made them or a loved one happy.  Each of their personal stories is remarkable and unique, and their enjoyment keeps me motivated, making my work a pleasure.

Before I create an artwork, I first have to make some kind of a connection with the subject bird or animal.   I prefer to physically handle and study the wildlife prior to painting, drawing, or sculpting it.  I look for its individual personality, as well as what physical and behavioral characteristics are common to its species.  Above all, I want to evoke a feeling and understanding of what is amazing about them in nature. It is challenging work.   I have laughed and enjoyed animal antics and I have also escaped some potentially serious injuries. Working with wild animals is a risk and I handle them carefully with an educated and well thought out plan. Happily, I rarely suffer a boring day and I am always learning something new.

To experience the call of the natural world one must be silent, so I prefer solitude when I am at my easel.   Through quiet introspection I contemplate the best way to portray the special qualities of each subject, be it the fierce strength, vulnerability, graceful beauty, determination, cunning, or loyalty common to its species.  I hope each time you look into the eyes and study the body language of the animals in my artwork, you will see and feel these emotions.  If so, then I have succeeded in helping you find your own connection to nature through art.
