Jenn Pointer’s (a.k.a. “jennspoint’s”) pieces are square, both because she likes the symmetry and because the thumbnails display properly online. Her digital artwork is specially designed to be printed on acrylic or metal, and incorporates purely digital effects such as pixelation and lens flares into professional 2D wall art. Some of her favorite inspirational artists are Wassily Kandinsky, Charley Harper, Loui Jover, and Minjae Lee. When she’s not drawing or writing, she’s cold-brewing coffee, garage-saling, and learning about nutrition and natural medicine.

In 1998, he moved back to Cornwall and from Cornwall, he moved up to the other end of the UK, to marry a wonderful Scottish lass and now lives in the Kingdom of Fife, where his lens catches the landscape.
The Pupazzovi began in the 1970’s under humble beginnings creating art with recycled materials such as egg shells for a school project.
It is a family affair for this primary school teacher as his brother takes the Pupazzovi creations under the influence of current affairs and people in the world today.
A true visionary takes what has been given in life and creates, art~

‘I’m a three dimensional being composed of caramel flavoured macarons and green tea. I once asked myself, years ago when I decided to start painting again, “What is my voice?” I am still searching for it. And on the way, my archives are expanding, one inspired session at a time.’
Being diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy (a form of muscular dystrophy) defines my physical limitations, but it does not define me. Living with a chronic illness puts everything into perspective. Reality is redefined. My soul is being purified through my suffering. I am becoming who I was before environment altered my character. I have learned to be content and discontent at the same time. Without the distraction of physical activities, I have discovered a purpose-driven life: First, to encourage others to live more fully with fun, faith, and hope; Second, to express my emotions through oil painting; Third, to write about my experiences; And lastly, to help others live more passionately.
