Twiggs Bakery & Coffeehouse — 2804 Adams Ave

Artist: Demetrios Christo

I have always been intrigued by the art of photography: Capturing that specific moment in time. My interest in the photographic arts started as a young teenager with a simple Pentax film camera, and I was anointed the photographer of the family. That position provided me opportunities to take pictures of family vacations to lands far and wide as well as recording gatherings of family and friends. With the advent of digital photography I have expanded my passion for photo imagery and in 2010 I launched blueolivepress.com with my signature imagery of a trip back to my homeland, Greece, after a 14 year hiatus. From that point, I have expanded my repertoire to include imagery of nature, architecture, industrial wastelands,landscapes, people and animals as well as diving strongly into the brilliance and depth of HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography.  I find myself capturing anything that interests meand  I try to stay true to the art of photography with minimal post editing. I feel that I am providing the viewer an experience that hopefully will make them think more about what they feel the image is saying to them rather than me telling them what Ithink it states; therefore breaking rules and allowing a participation, if you will, into my world as I see it through my lens.

Artist: Brian Meyer

Brian Meyer was born in San Diego in 1971. He has always been drawn to art, from doodling drawings to painting, and always felt that was what he was made for. He joined the army upon graduating High School and even painted some Nose art on some British Tanks for a case of British MRE’s. Got to see a bit of the world, from Saudi Arabia to Germany and France.

His focus now is on Watercolor, and has been studying on the WetCanvas.com forum, by going to Paint Outs hosted by the San Diego Watercolor Society, and just making sure he paints every day. He works with a limited palette of neutralizing complements, with an emphasis on tone. Plain air paintings of scenic spots in San Diego, and live figure drawing at the Museum of the Living Artist. He is just getting started.

Artist: Mary Neal-Bulow

I am a native San Diegan and have always loved expressing myself through art throughout my life.  While my sons were very young in the mid to late 1970’s I kept active painting murals in private homes, churches and daycare facilities.  As they grew and family activities took priority to what was mostly a hobby I put my artistic career on hold for many years.  Now that my sons are grown with families of their own and retirement has afforded me the luxury of exploring a renewed interest in art I feel very fortunate.  I am excited about being able to follow through creatively with many of the ideas that have haunted my imagination for years.   As I engage in finding opportunities to study under local artists I feel blessed San Diego has a wealth of some remarkably talented artists.

I have been juried in to many shows around San Diego over the past 4 years in local galleries, libraries, synagogues and San Diego civic Center.

My main focus currently is watercolor with eclectic subject matter.  My on-going pursuit is honing my skills in watercolor portraits.

I also create and design a humorous line of greeting cards to lift the spirits of my elderly friends in our geriatric set.  I will be marketing them soon under the name Mymary’s Art.  My motto and logo on my business cards; “No matter your age, you can always be young at art!”

A Masters degree in Art and credentials in the teaching of Art and Vocational Jewelry Design and Fabrication enhance her creative abilities. The first part of her career was spent as a teacher and professional artist with numerous exhibitions and awards in painting, design and education.

Many individuals are professional artists and jewelers as a result of this training.

I make things, I always have

Like many other object makers, I am a collector of things, an assembler, an arranger.
The techniques I employ to make my work are fraught with danger.
Molten or sharp: glass and metal can burn you, cut you, scar you.
The physical aspect of working, the sweat, the dance, the communion with your partner or your team… Its earthy and difficult.
I like that

Artist: Taryn Jayne

I find myself consumed by glassblowing for reasons other than its beautiful visual qualities. As a glass artist I am challenged to control and coax this molten material with every tool but my hands. For over a decade hot glass has continued to humble me, yet it is the most addictive medium I’ve ever gotten my hands on.

The skills learnt in the shop become life skills. They are lessons in commitment. Unlike other materials glass does not allow the artist to take a step back, put it aside and come back to it. Glass necessitates quick thinking and immediate action. It’s an adrenaline rush.

San Diego Creative Arts Project (SDCAP) — 4715 30th St

Artist: Gretchen Smith

My philosophy is that art is the greatest expression of faith.  Gretchen M. Smith has been producing work professionally for nearly 20 years. Typically her work is categorized as abstract expressionist paintings but she works in many media and basically follows God’s lead. Currently she is working on installations and group projects exploring the dynamics of the human interactions of the artists participating in the projects. She seeks to exhibit her work in venues that encourage cultural and religious gaps to be bridged through faith-based abstract visual art. Ms. Smith is interested in pursuing large scale kinetic public art projects that integrate water, video, and non-traditional mural materials in venues that reach large demographically diverse groups.

Artist: Bradford Lynn

Chula Vista native Bradford Lynn likes to say he started as a graffiti artist when he was 4, using red marker to revamp the walls of his family’s apartment (which led to their subsequent eviction). Lynn has since traded in the red marker for acrylics, galosh, ink and other mediums to create eerie images he hopes will inspire wonder.

“I like the mystery,” Lynn says. “That’s what draws me in. I just want people to follow their curiosity.”

Lynn drew his inspiration for the illustration on the cover of this week’s CityBeatfrom the song “Ghost” by Harvard, which led him to title the image “Ghost.” The lyric “I can feel it in the air” stirred Lynn to envision what ominous thoughts might actually look like. He wanted to create an image of the invisible insecurities people carry around.

“Your thoughts, negativity or your fear could be some sort of entity, almost like a spirit that follows you everywhere,” he explains.

Hola. I’m Christy Pepper Dawson – an illustrator and painter of macabre misfits and whimsical worlds.

I was born an only child in a small town in Nova Scotia. Growing up, I tended to bond more with insects and imaginary creatures rather than children my age.
Little has changed since then. I still find most of my inspiration from these beings. Of course dreams, music, fashion, photos, nature, comics, films and gummy bears also influence what I create.

This work is made fast… letting mind work through pen, in a style that reacts the controlled chaos within the borders of the panel… taking influence from the late great Willem de Kooning, and modern artist such as Anthony Lister, Jay Ryan… Having an overactive mind is beneficial here…simply start with white panel and pencil, allow your mind and hand to move freely without scrutiny… once the page is full, you may take control once again to react and analyze… and esh out any recognizable imagery… This allows you to have some control over the mess you have created… I do this because it brings me joy, as I hope it does for you.

Through her illustrations and plant-based recipe experiments, Ginny strives to make a connection with individuals with a thirst for knowledge to elevate themselves to their highest potential through healthy living.
When Ginny isn’t collaborating with rad eco-conscious individuals (yoga teachers, wellness entrepreneurs, musicians, and even start-up companies to name a few), she meditates her way into creating new artwork that invokes consciousness with an organic modern twist.

Artist: Veterans Mural Project

Adams Ave. VMP mural (1)

The Veteran Mural Project brings together post-911 combat veterans and neighborhood groups for the eventual location and execution of mural art. A professional artist and two veterans are working together to facilitate the mural project with a group of active duty service members who have been diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This project provides an opportunity for active duty service members and veterans to come together and utilize art as a therapeutic means by which to communicate with others and relief stress. In addition, the public murals provide an opportunity for the civilian public to meaningfully interact with the military population in San Diego.

The Veteran Mural Project is a public art program within the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Combat Arts San Diego (combatartssd.org). Founded in 2010, Combat Arts San Diego provides art classes, museum tours, art exhibitions, mentorships, and public art opportunities for post-911 combat veterans and active duty military. The purpose of the Veteran Mural Project program is to use mural art to educate the general public about the challenges veterans face as they transition from military service to the civilian work force and to advocate for veterans by providing opportunities for their personal growth through the Arts. Combat Arts is very grateful to the Normal Heights Community for hosting one of our murals and providing us with a stipend to help offset some of the costs. We would like to give special thanks to the owners of the Adams Avenue Car Wash for giving us their wall to hang the mural on.

Artist: Peter Geise

Geise, a veteran of the San Diego scene, employs drawing, painting and collaged material with a  stream of consciousness style. The self taught artist utilizes abstract figures and non objective elements in his work.  Working along similar methods of Klee, Miro, and Picasso, Geise’s work is an “updating” of 20’s to 60’s abstract art. His work often features biomorphic “figures” or “glyphs” in formal and random or “automatic” compositions.  Geise works mainly with acrylic paint, collage and colored pencil. Additional influences on composition and theme include music (alternative rock, etc), classic film, “underground” comics, 1950’s Science Fiction, graffiti, and various contemporary themes.

Artist: Todd Carpenter

As a painter, I am particularly interested in the depiction of light, and in the ways in which light contributes to our experience of paintings.

As with any visual art, painting obviously has an essential dependence on light, but there are other, more specific ways in which light is important for paintings. In particular, the depiction of light is crucial for realism. Realism in paintings presumably arises from the accurate portrayal of depth: to see a painting as realistic means to see its subject as existing in more than just the two dimensions of the picture plane. The behavior of light in space, generating features such as variations in shading and contrast, tells us about the three-dimensional arrangement of our surroundings.

The name Unity came as a result of spiritual experience and it simply displaces himself from taking credit for what God is doing through him. He currently resides in San Diego as a home base but will continue to travel all over the world, painting, learning cultures, and creating unity.

Sioux Magazine has evolved into a new species. From this day forward our publication will be Teros. We still carry the same ideals but we’re now gravitating towards an extraterrestrial concept.

Teros Magazine is a collaboration of creative minds and dexterous hands exploring the uncharted ideas of the limitless human psyche.We construe the bizarre quirks of consciousness and of the surrounding physical world on paper to compose a yearly magazine. Music, folklore, self-transcendence, film, illustration, the occult and science are just a few sources from which our contributors draw

For 4 years, our publication has circulated up and down the West Coast, popping up in your local records stores, boutiques and cafes. Look out for a copy of Sioux Magazine in San Diego, San Francisco, and Oakland. Open your eyes, ears and feel our creation.

Buddha Baby — 3342 Adams Ave

Artist: Andi Catherine

Andi Catherine started pursuing a serious career in art in 2012, albeit her background in and motivation to create art transcends this. She spent 3 years in Mission Beach mastering the craft of henna, as well as honing her talent around town at various events. Constantly doodling, she confesses that sharpies are her favorite utensil. However, ceramics are the object of her passion. She invites her audience to follow suit through her creations: breaking down the walls of formality, disregarding the conventions of high art, and bringing artwork back to its roots—an intrinsic compulsion to create. She has sold her pieces from New Orleans to Canada and doesn’t plan to stop there. She remains active and dynamic in her hometown, putting her works on display at art shows, galleries, and any venue that will have her. She is also available for commissioned works. ExperiencingNow currently has a store front in Creative Crossroads at 502 University Ave Hillcrest, San Diego.

Heights Optometry — 3404 Adams Ave

Artist: Cassandra Schramm

I am from Southern California, but i recently moved back to San Diego after 7 years of living in Boston. I have been painting my whole life but I have been a muralist for over 18 years.

My paintings are as random as my life. I am inspired by everything around me but my usual subject matter is eyes. The reflection and human connection associated with eyes. I have always found it hard to look someone in the eyes when I am talking to them. I have tried to be better at this as the years pass. When you make eye contact with another person, you let down your guard, it is growing vulnerability the longer the contact lasts. There are many theories on eye contact while talking, but I notice that there is a limit, most people must look away off and on, while talking.

Brooklyn Bicycles — 3421 Adams Ave

Artist: Monty Montgomery

Monty Montgomery began exhibiting his work in 2002. Born and raised in Virginia, Montgomery loved black lines and bright colors at a very young age and was influenced by his mother who was a kindergarten teacher.  Montgomery’s use of “stars” in his work comes from years of sitting with his Grandfather as he pointed out constellations through the dark, small town, Virginia skies.

“Almost every single one of my pieces has a specific meaning to it, a vibe, a feeling or message that I want you to take in and walk away with,” Montgomery says. “I not only want to hit you with my vision of color and lines, but even more so with the message within each creation. My job is to create art that makes you feel.”

Montgomery recently combined forces with J Feather, another San Diego based Artist and the duo formed KREASHUN in 2012. KREASHUN is a combination of both Artist’s visions and talents coming together to create one lucid dream of experience upon interior and exterior walls around the globe.

Artist: Abelardo Rodriguez

Focused on producing Art based on Sacred Geometry, we create a unique visual experience that is healing, educational and fun.

Mandalas engage the mind, align, quiet and center. They have been used by great civilizations to train the mind to perceive and see with a new understanding.

Many studies on the effects of classical music have proven that the mind and energetic bio-magnetic fields are impacted with this music. Mental clarity and senses are heightened and a person experiences a different type of consciousness. Composers whom use Sacred Geometrical principles in their music, like Mozart and Vivaldi, are typically associated with these effects.

Artist: Brent Hefner

Brent Hefner began his love for art when he was a young boy. He was given a golden ticket and allowed inside a large beer brewing factory and led around by a strange man who liked to sing and dance with little people who sang songs making fun of other contest winners. He discovered at a young age the power of art but since singing and dancing really wasn’t his thing, he escaped and hid in Northern California.
He developed a love for drawing and painting and would draw pictures of skulls and demons while passing notes to girls in class. “Do you like me? Yes… No… Maybe….” This love for drawing developed into a full blown enterprise for Brent drawing pictures on notes for other people in school to pass off as their own.

By age 13 Brent was a full blown hundred-aire and was on top of the world until a girl went public with one of his notes and Brent was forced into art rehab. While in rehab 15 other girls came forward and snitched that Brent had been sending them art covered notes too. This forced Brent into hiding once again only to surface 10 years later….
In San Diego.
Part of his rehab was Brent was no longer allowed to make art on paper so he switched up and started tattooing people. Come in and meet with Brent as part of his lifelong battle with art addiction. Remember every little bit helps and you are not just doing it for art, or for Brent, you are doing it for Corey

Artist: InSlider

The Inslider is San Diego’s hottest food truck addiction, serving gourmet sliders and sides on the go.

San Diego's Best Food Truck

Have you ever visited a restaurant and simply could not decide which single item to order? We know the feeling. It is that desire to try a little bit of everything that inspired the concept behind The InSlider.

Driven by variety, our first steps were to ask for input from the community on an assortment of topics from our name to colors for the truck. We then united a team with diverse experience in culinary, business and creative ventures. After much anticipation, and months spent developing the menu/preparing the truck – TheInslider hit the streets in April 2012. We’ve been serving up gourmet sliders and fries all over San Diego ever since.

Community, sharing, variety, and a love for unique, tasty food have inspired us to embark on this culinary adventure. Come join us!

Artist: Paul Naylor

My name is Paul Naylor, I’m an illustrator/designer living in San Diego, where I’ve been my whole life.  I have been drawing since I was three, and currently specialize in acrylic paintings / illustration, and also enjoy logo and general design.  I have a Bachelor’s Degree from the Art Institute of San Diego in graphic design.  I’ve been lucky enough to perform and educate for audiences at the San Diego Zoo, Downtown Disney, and many other events around the US. I currently work with my friends and mentors at Launch Live Art, where I paint, perform, and have even played live percussion.

I was drawn to graphic design because I was intrigued by the idea of using typography artistically, and I’ve always loved art associated with underground music and film, especially from decades past where emphasis was heavy on hand-rendering. I also play drums in a couple local bands, and love when visual art and music can be combined. Big influences on my art include a long love of animals, old horror and sci-fi movies, vast natural landscapes (especially Yosemite), Godzilla, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mid-Century Modern design, and music.

Clusters and non traditional techniques.  Abstract art gives me the opportunity to have all these things collide in the most messy and wonderful way.

Artist: Evelyn Goldman

An autodidact in ceramics, I was introduced to clay at the Genesee Co-op Communiversity in Rochester, New York in 1972.  For the most part, my work is wheel thrown; stoneware is my medium. While confining myself to the rigors of the potter’s wheel, my personal challenge is produce work which contains strong organic elements. .

In recent years, I have been exploring the wide world of hand built ceramics. The results are wedge and box shaped plant holders, along with the beginnings of sculptural forms.

I am a 4th generation San Diego native who grew up loving the mountains, desert and beaches. Drawing was my first love until I discovered clay in the 3rd. grade. I am continually inspired by natural and native elements in my environment.  I am constantly finding inspiration from sticks, rocks, pinecones and other elements of nature. The complex simplicity in the forms is a source of never ending fascination for me. I love to use art in my life so when people have a piece of mine I want them to use it and enjoy it in an everyday setting.

Artist: Michael Nobel
My work in Ceramics is an exploration of nature as a medium to finding new self-truths. The forms that I work with explore soulful moments of life transitions as a son, father, and lover.  While studying ceramics at George Fox University I was introduced to Anagama (wood) and Raku firing. My foundation in art is based on the complexity that is explored in the Edo period of Japanese Art. 
 
Michael Noble currently holds the position of Associate at Clay Associates in San Diego, CA. His work in Ceramics for the last seventeen years has been in wheel throwing and hand-building. Michael has worked as an Artist in Residence at Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland. He studied art at George Fox University in Portland, Oregon and other schools in Maryland.

Artist: KimCHI

KimCHI (aka Linda Nguyen) is a San Diego native that grew up around Adams Avenue. Surrounded by several artists in her family, the expressive talent came naturally for her, and she has been creating since she was a child.

Her life experiences are her inspiration and her canvases capture your attention with their large scale and intricate detail. She also finds inspiration in the beauty and allure of sex and the female form. She displays the juxtaposition of dangerous beauty by adorning her girls with guns and ammo.

When KimCHI is not painting, she spends time designing costumes to cosplay for Comic Con International: San Diego. All components of her costumes are made by hand – she paints, forms, and sculpts everything from masks, weapons, and accessories. It’s a grueling process of trial and error, but the end results make everything worthwhile. She has been featured on several costume websites and even made an appearance on The Colbert Report. Eventually she would like to travel to other conventions in different cities to showcase her passion for cosplay.

My artwork references a memory of an experience, a landscape, or an object that inspires me. I begin my process by using materials I have collected and found. Then I let things happen organically. I play with paper, roll clay into beads, sew, and weave. Fields of folded paper, cascading beads and silk worm cocoons, and woven rings.
I have a studio at La Bodega Gallery in Barrio Logan. I teach Visual Arts at HTeX to kindergarten thru fifth grade.

Artist: Daniel Jaimes

Thanks to a little known space fantasy film called Star Wars which premiered in May 1977…it was by far the most amazing and Epic movie I’ve ever seen!  As for this 10 year old native kid at that time…I was totally blown away by the special effects which inspired me to pick up a pencil  and began drawing spaceships, characters and battle scenes from the movie which seemed to come natural at such a young age.

Present Day: My work is now recognized and appreciated by many at every exhibit I show, from Comic Con to people’s homes, coffee shops, wineries, restaurants, respectable galleries, beautiful hotels, live music concert halls and most of all…Charity events, because giving back is priceless!

Artist: Gretchen Smith

My philosophy is that art is the greatest expression of faith.  Gretchen M. Smith has been producing work professionally for nearly 20 years. Typically her work is categorized as abstract expressionist paintings but she works in many media and basically follows God’s lead. Currently she is working on installations and group projects exploring the dynamics of the human interactions of the artists participating in the projects. She seeks to exhibit her work in venues that encourage cultural and religious gaps to be bridged through faith-based abstract visual art. Ms. Smith is interested in pursuing large scale kinetic public art projects that integrate water, video, and non-traditional mural materials in venues that reach large demographically diverse groups.

Artist: Britton Neubacher

Britton Neubacher spent her formative years on the island of Oahu where the people’s reverence for their land instilled a radical respect for nature and the power of place.  It was during a lengthy career in crisis work that the balancing power of plants upon stressful environments was made apparent. This growing desire to create “sanctuary with style” brought mindful gardening together with high design and thus Tend Living was born.

Artist: Kristen Palumbo

While I have always been visually driven and artistically inclined, it wasn’t until I took an art history class in college that I was pushed to create a piece of art based on inspiration from another artist. I decided to attempt to create stencils and a layered piece of art using spray paints. I discovered a fascination with this process and an ability to recreate images in new found ways.  My goal is to sell pieces at affordable prices so that people can enjoy my art and I can enjoy making more!

Clip Art Salon — 4155 Adams Ave

Artist: J. I. Anichowski

I was born and raised in Sin City, Las Vegas, Nevada. Through my schooling there I came to the realization that all I wanted to do in life was paint and create. So I packed up and moved to southern California, where I have continued my learning, painting, and creating.

I’m inspired by life. The works of Salvador Dali, Micheal Parks, and the wonderful San Diego local artists I’ve come to personally know help to shape my vision. I find my paintings in the forms of the clouds, the bubbles in my bath, and in the playfulness of the creatures of nature.

As long as I can remember I have used my hands and my creativity to make things. Dolly key chains and painting plaster figurines still hold a special place in my heart.

I’ve been designing, making, and selling my jewelry for twenty years; and now sell to boutiques across the United States.  My inspiration comes from my family, nature, and the past.

My favorite work is taking apart vintage jewelry, and then mixing it with dark earthy stones, and bringing the past and nature together into the present.

Artist: Mae Crauder-Davis

I discovered my Layered Acrylic Collage technique by a series of happy accidents. Using acrylic mediums, I build the material with layers of medium, a texture layer, and a thin layer of metal.  When I put more layers of acrylic mediums over the metals, colors come up spontaneously.  I seal them with acrylic varnish, and the colors never change again.  I have very little control over the colors that come up from the metal leaf during the drying process. The material can be folded, rolled and cut, making a variety of artworks possible. Working compositions with a limited palette has been a challenge.  The combination of organic textures and metals has a timeless look that I find exciting.

Artist: Julianne Ricksecker

Julianne B. Ricksecker portrays realistic landscape imagery in pastel, monotype, intaglio printmaking (etching and collagraph), and watercolor painting. Art by Julianne has been exhibited in local, regional and international competition. She is a member of the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, the Pastel Society of San Diego, and  the San Diego and North County Printmakers.

“Inspired and delighted by the beauty of landscape, I try to express the awe and wonder I feel through a variety of media on paper.  I am fascinated with the effects of light on the colors and textures of the landscape, and with the rhythms and patterns of the shapes therein.   I wish to evoke in the viewer some of the pleasure, peace and joy I feel when experiencing and contemplating our natural world in the form of the landscape. ”

     Julianne’s imagery comes from places she has visited, such as waterfalls in Yosemite, vistas of Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, the Sierra Nevada mountains, and desert scenes of Anza Borrego.   Look for imagery from her recent trip to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons.

 Katy began her career as an artist at an early age in England by following her artist uncle and mentor around with her sketchbook. This led her to the Sheffield Art College where she studied drawing and painting and on to the prestigious London Central School of Art where she majored in theatre set and costume design. After graduation she embarked on a career in the theatre, designing for plays, opera, ballet, and film.
     On moving to America, Katy returned to her first love of painting and chose watercolour for her medium. Her award-winning paintings are held in private and public collections. Several of her works have been featured in magazines and other publications.
     Katy returns to England each year to sketch and paint. Also, she has been visiting other European countries and, more recently, Central America and Mexico which has resulted in many paintings and drawings in a series of sketchbooks.
     A constant rewarding comment from her collectors is that your paintings bring happiness.
