Artist Bios — November 2014

Sandy Anderson: I typically paint characters in my neighborhood. This piece is a turn to more classical forms, inspired by poetry about ballet. Always, I want to make an image that can only be expressed as a painting or drawing, and therefore avoid lighting situations, detail, and a certain level of realism. I enjoy painterliness and, simultaneously, economy.

A major project there was as Design Associate for the award-winning Johns Hopkins APL Technical Digest. She has been painting in oils for over 30 years. In 2012 she began exploring the abstract in mixed-media works. Her paintings reside in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and California.

Juliannah Harrison has been exploring and residing in Baltimore for four years! Originally, here for Maryland Institute College of Art’s illustration program, her ‘knack’ for teaching illustration and drawing classes, in the Anne Arundel County school district, soon followed. As an illustrator and teacher stories, secrets, wrinkles, hair, moles, and people mean everything. Most of her work is in ink, hints of colour with found material for the surfaces. Her idea is to ask the questions we all want to receive, but never hear.
