Liz Tuckwell is a painter currently living in Chicago, Illinois. Shortly after graduating with a BA in Spanish from Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, she relocated to Amsterdam, The Netherlands where she dedicated herself to her artwork and her love of travel. After nearly ten years of creating art abroad, she returned to her hometown of Chicago in 2005. The main focus of her work is oil painting, which can most accurately be described as Abstract Expressionism.

She states, “ I truly began my painting career while living in Amsterdam with little more than cheap oil paints from a local Dutch market, a potato knife and paper.  Later, I discovered the use of brushes, I discovered the canvas and the story begins to write itself from there. My paintings are stories that burst forth from within me, often times telling me a story about myself. If we see art as an investigation into being, then my paintings are my investigation into my being; I paint what I feel, or rather what I am feeling comes through on each canvas.”

Animal Insight is an experiment in using my art to express and acknowledge emotions as well as capture moments in time throughout the past year of my life. My training in art therapy has taught me to use my art as a form of emotional expression, self analysis and as a way to relate to others. I have a great love for animals and enjoy exploring their behavior, appreciating their beauty, as well as discovering how humans react and relate to them. I find that identifying with animals and the natural world helps one to feel more grounded and connected to our environment and each other.

Inspired by the book Animal Speak by Ted Andrews, my process began by choosing animals that make up my animal totem. These animals represent parts of me and their different meanings relate with my past and to who I am today. I followed up by painting other animals that I connected to and that came to my mind through meditation. After painting I looked up the animal’s meaning and found that they epitomized what was happening in my life. The further that I committed to creating this series the more the concept of spirit animal or animal messenger repeated itself in my conversations and experiences. The journey of creating each painting has awaked my interest of how others connect to certain animals and hearing the insights of what they mean to them. I invite the viewer to choose an animal that they feel drawn to and see if they relate to the insight that they are sending to us.

I am a self-taught artist. I paint, design and carry on my business from my home studio in Houston, Texas. Often inspired by childhood, my watercolor drawings are whimsical, delicate and nostalgic. If you love girly, pastels, glitter and sweets, you’ve landed at the right place. If you also love cats, fancy manicures and ogling baby clothes, let’s be friends!

I personally print every art print and all orders are prepared, packaged and shipped by yours truly. I love attention to detail so don’t be surprised if you find a dash of confetti or a pinch of sparkle in your delivery.

Kristin is an artist who loves to draw, paint and sculpt. Her style is whimsical and colorful in nature expressing her upbeat take on life. She has a Fine Arts Degree but continues to discover new creative avenues for her art. She finds urban energy a constant inspiration to her art but she can also stop and appreciate the quiet beauty of a new spring blossom or the colors of the evening sky. Kristin’s shop also includes some metalwork from time to time, hand forged by a friend who is a metalsmith.

She believes art should not be judged by the size of the piece, the materials used or the technique applied but by how the viewer is moved by it from the first encounter.

Molly Cranch

Navigating the line between abstraction and realism, Molly Cranch’s paintings are infused with light, air, and atmosphere. Inspired by nature, common subjects include complex botanical forms and delicate gestural renderings of birds and other creatures.

Painting from nature has been an enduring interest of Molly’s. What began as a study in depth, pattern and color, has since evolved into a form of meditation. Painting nature builds a connection to nature in the often hectic, busy city landscape in which she lives.

Molly Cranch received her BFA in painting from Washington University in St. Louis, a K-12 certificate in art education from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is a certified children’s yoga teacher. She lives in Chicago with her family.
