Practices in Louisburg, Kansas

Cher Ulrich grew up on the rolling hills near Santa Barbara California nurturing her love of nature. This continues to show in her work to this day. Her perennial interest in making greeting cards for friends & family led to an interest in painting from the feedback that her cards looked like small paintings. She has been pursuing oil painting since 2000, graduating from the University of Kansas in 2009 with a BFA. Cher is always looking for the emotional connection in her choice of subject matter. An important aspect of her work is to give a different perspective of the world surrounding the viewer whether it be with portraits, natural subjects or abstracts.

Quick Facts:

Born in Lima, Peru

Yvonne Mora was born in Lima, Peru, in 1959. She graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes in 1985 and has held a very active career since.
She considers herself an expressionist painter with a strong influence from the masters, Cezanne, Picasso, Van Gogh and Sorolla. A very secure brushstroke and a rigorous composition characterize her expressionism. Her painting is full of color, light and life, according to her. Yvonne Mora has always been known for her independence.
She had to struggle during art school because of her originality. Subsequently, she had a hard time with local dealers because of her singular style. But well deserved recognition did not take long to arrive. As soon as art dealers from the United States and Japan began to pay attention to her work, she was in hot demand.
Mora claims that her travelling to Japan and the USA has enriched her painting with universal elements that allow her to transcend the barriers of a regional expression.

Waltraud von Schwarzbek

Born in Bavaria
Practices in Prairie Village, KS

Waltraud was born into a family of artists among the mountain forests and fairy-tale castles of Bavaria. There she developed an eye for beauty and a deep appreciation of fine art from an early age. She went on to graduate from the National Academy of Art in Munich, where she honed her technique in the traditions of realism and impressionism.
A great variety of subjects have been captured in Waltraud’s paintings during the course of her career. Her years an illustrator for Columbia Pictures, United Artists, and Warner Brothers applied her skills to a wide range of images. Later, her series of oil paintings of endangered species helped support the Wild Life Fund through the donation of their copyrights. Subjects of her portraiture have included opera stars Placido Domingo and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa as well as U.S. Presidents Truman, Kennedy, and Carter. In 1997, former president Carter was delighted to sign her portrait of him depicted in a Native American headdress.
Waltraud is perhaps best noted for her floral works in oil on panel, often compared to those of old masters such as Rachel Ruysch and Jan van Huysum. Her floral paintings have been published for over seven years and a color plate appeared in the 1997 North Light Book’s “The Best of Flower Paintings”. Also, The Bradford Exchange has featured her work on a series of limited edition porcelain plates.

Practices in Kansas City, KS

Throwing a successful piece demands control over the medium, a strict adherence to a series of steps. Most of my work is the result of combining separately thrown sections, carefully joined by scoring, slipping and reshaping on the wheel. In the forming, I strive for simplicity and grace. The narrow neck is the final step, much like a period at the end of a sentence. As the pot begins to dry, I burnish it to ensure a smooth, inviting surface. For me, pottery must be both a tactile and visual art form. There is deep satisfaction in this practice of an ancient craft and the honing of a skill. So it must be the rebellious child in me, the would-be alchemist, who gets an exuberant joy out of taking these carefully constructed pots, nestling them in a bed of sawdust, minerals and wood scraps, and then setting them on fire. To see the flames leap up and smoke rise like an offering to an ancient pagan god thrills me. The anticipation of witnessing the marks left by the fire’s passage across a pot’s surface is intense. The uncertainty of what will result reminds me that life is unpredictable, sometimes disappointing, but often achingly beautiful.

Practices in Kansas City, MO

I’m Jordan Marney (but you might know me as Jordan Watkins). I’m a Florida native, but I fell in love with the Midwest as an architecture student at the University of Kansas. I’ve since set up shop as a full-time artist in Kansas City, where I currently live with my cute husband and our lovable-but-stupid pups. I’m a habitual book sniffer, bourbon drinker, food geek, and baseball fan. I’m also a lover and lifelong student of all forms of art, which brings us here.
I’ve always been interested in various subject matter, techniques, and media, and I love to incorporate different, often dichotomous artistic styles into my work.
My work reflects a unique combination of architectural, technical precision and colorful abstraction, and I love to work with both natural and unconventional materials. I’m inspired by botany, anatomy, the female body, and modernism.
