Artist Interview @ NYAA


Alonsa-Guevara-01

Alonsa states, “I am fascinated by the complexity of nature. Every day I find new inspiration, especially now with the Fruit Portraits I’m making. I walk around different neighborhoods in the city and find new fruits from the markets of all different cultures. My dreams, my family, and memories from my childhood in Chile and Ecuador, where I was always connected to nature, also inspire me. Finally, I am inspired by the work of other artists.”

{Susan Harrell}

Susan Harrell;

A self taught,  Photo-realist painter from Asheboro, North Carolina!

beautiful afterlife 6X25


Susan is such an inspiration and is my favorite artist of all time!

As mentioned she is completely self taught artist who spent her first years as a painter replicating the work of Renaissance masters before she transitioned into her own original works!


NoSugarAdded 8X12 oil aluminum


The majority of her work is still life where she incorporates high contrast and supersaturated colors to achieve a highly accurate representation of detail, creating a contemporary photorealistic painting.

It is incredible how detailed her work is, featuring reflective subjects such as glass, chrome and water! Also through her lighting techniques and brush strokes she is even able to capture detail in objects such as rope and fruit, leaving you feeling like you could reach out and feel the objects that are in the painting!


the middle child


Susan currently paints on aluminum. She started out using canvas, switching to panel and then eventually having to use aluminum to achieve the level of detail she required. She stated that using aluminum is like painting on glass!

{Joshua Flint}

Words cannot express the works of Joshua Flint!

He creates these fictional pieces that combine photos that he has found while exploring through pictures on the Library of Congress website as well as images from social media, vintage shops,other artist and also from his own imagination!


Joshua adds in these scenes that twist your brain as you search the canvas and imagine the lives of the characters portrayed. I love how he will use different mediums, creating a textured abstract scene right next to a memory shaded in sepia, it is so alluring I have to pull myself away from his work every time!


He creates pieces for the viewer to experience his work, not to hear an explanation! He is creating paintings for the mind, which he completes flawlessly!


Joshua shares his work and his process online. He is inspired by the comments and the feedback that he receives from others, a way of getting out of his own head and hearing the thoughts or ideas of others.

{Shane & Sara Scribner}

Shane was born in  Tulsa Oklahoma where he spent his childhood exceeding at art. After high school he attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he would later meet his wife  Sara Scribner, and graduated in 2004. Shane studied contemporary masters, learning their classical painting techniques. His work reflects classical subject with a modern twist.  He has recently been focusing his work on a series of figurative drawings that take your breath away.

Shane explains how, “The human form is the most basic and yet the most expressive of subjects. Through my work I am exploring the classical figure in a modern light.” He  will create a classic figurative piece and then adds a special touch of imagination that creates this intriguing modern feel.  Shane also paints unique pieces that are a type of mirroring of the subject to display a range of emotions, walking the line of fantasy between the imagined and real life.

Sara Scribner

Sara studied art at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where she graduated in 2005 and dove right into becoming a professional painter. Sara’s figurative work is both whimsical and narrative, every paint strokes will pull you farther into the story that is being portrayed on the canvas. Her work is thought-provoking and the models intriguing expressions and poses showcase the basic truth of human existence.

Sara explains “Traveling the world through books, shifting through stories, I find myths and folktales that use flora and fauna in their allegories. When combined with realism, the results are contemporary paintings that speak a language that has been used by painters and poets for centuries.” She continues, “Both flowers and animals have been used in symbolism by many different cultures. Translating these stories and making them my own is where my creativity thrives.” Sara finds herself inspired by the portraits of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. She loves how Frida is able to capture the emotion and psychological aspect especially in Frida’s own self-portraits. Sara is a painter and a poet who creates beautiful and intuitive figurative paintings.
