Heather Dawn Batchelor
As long as she can remember, Heather has been trying to find the right medium to bring a little of her fantasy world into the real world. For many years Heather's creative focus was in creating an equestrian handbag company. She started by designing whimsical fabrics and sewing bags by hand in her upstairs guest bedroom. Eventually, her bags would be sold globally on 5 out of 7 continents.
After the bags, she returned to her love of painting. She returned to painting to regain a sense of control of her artistic process and a way to escape into her fantasy world but soon found each painting taking on a life of its own. Always a storyteller, Heather’s paintings are a glimpse into her own private world where colors and shapes play and create their own settings, characters, and adventures. Her work has been featured in exhibits across the midwest. A part of the proceeds from Heather's art goes to support the kNot Today Foundation based in Indianapolis, IN. https://knottoday.org Check out her work here.
KWA explores the space between stimulus and response, where each of us has the power and freedom to choose our reactions. He has captured this space by extracting still frames from his Abstract 3D Motion Pictures at a rate equivalent to 1/24th of a second, a window too brief for any response. The extracted still frames are then 3D printed at a cinematic scale to encourage his audiences to suspend contemplation prior to reaction.
KWA knows a piece has succeeded when an observer of his work tells him something about it he did not expect; something that is a new discovery or consistent positive factor in their lives which allows them to have a positive impact on the lives of those around them. Discovering something of which no one has seen before, including himself. His collector base extends across the US and work has been featured in exhibits across the midwest. Check out his work here.

She specializes in custom hand-painted wall murals, faux painting, and decorative painting of all kinds. She currently has two main art collections to choose from: abstracts and modern floral pieces. Her contemporary style of plaster painting is extremely unique and is something that she has developed and perfected over the years.

Born 1961 in the city of Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, Sandro is quickly earning a reputation of greatness in the world of art. He completed a classical education at the Art Academy of Tbilisi and attained masters' degrees in both art and architecture. Following a 20 year successful career in architecture, Sandro has established himself as a master artist of the canvas. Sandro's expression of urban landscape, musical genre, and natural imagery has evolved into the creation of his own style; a mix of impressionism and modern art. His unique artistic interpretation allows him to paint the most ordinary of objects and scenes through a sensitive, generous, and elaborate palette, which one finds irresistible and fascinating. Today Sandro's paintings are owned by private collectors all over the world. Check out his work here.
