Leslie Macon is an oil painter living in North Carolina who has been painting professionally since 1994. Her art career began as a wood carver in 1984, carving duck decoys from basswood and tupelo. She eventually apprenticed under a world class cajun decoy carver and that was where she first discovered painting with oils. She switched from carving to painting in pastel and oil mediums in the early 1990's. It was during this time that she competed in national and international competitions as a wildlife artist winning awards and selling through art galleries. In 2001 she decided to experiment with other subjects and explored floral and still life. During that time she worked for Websters Fine Art Publishing and had several collections published for the home decor market. In 2006, she hit a creative brick wall. She didn't paint for eight months and didn't know if she would ever paint again.Thankfully through self examination and therapeutic exercises she was able to reconnect and resume a rewarding career as a visionary artist.

Shawn Stucky was born in McPherson, Kansas in 1979 and moved to Chicago in 2002. Because of a beautiful coincidence in 2006, he created his first screen print. It was wondrous – for the first time ever he was able to put his artistic visions onto paper.
Shawn has a strong bond between music, feelings, and his experiences in life. For Shawn, music can create feelings that he cannot manage to put into words, but feels compelled to create art that gives those feelings a tangible form. His style incorporates music because it acts as a catalyst for many unnamed emotions that he knows and shares with others. Because of that unity in emotion, he is continually inspired to create art that inspires a person to visit a familiar, but unnamed emotion.
