Scottish printmaker Bryan Angus has been making prints since 2012. The visual artist is based in Banff on the north Aberdeenshire coast – otherwise known as the Banffshire Coast. He has been making prints since 2012 and has found what feels like an entire world of expression in two colors. His inspiration stems from the beauty of the land and the drama of the landscape where he resides. On an interview with Jackson’s Art he says this about linocutting and inspiration:
“It (Linocutting) works very well with the graphic nature of the pictures I make and my drawing skills; I enjoy the carving process, the craft skill adds a fascinating dimension to the making of an image and is very therapeutic to do; lastly, the nature of multiples means my work can be seen further and owned by more people.”
“I’m inspired by the coast where I live, the drama of the land and sea meeting. But the common themes in my work are the character of architecture, the atmosphere of weather and different light conditions and the dynamic spaces we make around buildings.”

Suzanne Sullivan is an Oregon-born ceramist now living and working in Brooklyn where she creates textile, jewelry, pottery, and ceramics. We love her ceramic pieces with its rough surfaces and contrasting geometric patterns. On The Star Whisperer she relates this about herself:
“I like the idea of the artist as a kind of design factory, prepared to tackle all kinds of issues, whether they be extraordinary or mundane.”
“I like the things in our every day world that are not mass-produced, things that have fingerprints on them. At home, I collect twigs and sticks and nests, special rocks, pieces of small nothings from the natural world, and a lot of times, my ceramics become vessels for these things.”

Oakland-based artist Gabriel Schama used to cut a lot of his work by hand but now most of his work is made from whatever he can cut with his laser cutter affectionately called “Elsie”. His incredible and intricate relief sculptures are created with layered pieces of laser-cut mahogany plywood. Each piece starts out as vector illustration which is sent to the laser cutter that cuts a 1/8th piece of plywood. The layers are then glued together and varnished.
