Woody Hansen combines outdoor work, with the more controlled studio environment . Over the years his subject matter has varied. However, raised in the city of Mount Shasta, and now living within walking distance of Sacramento’s American River Parkway, Hansen prefers the outdoors; even much of his non-objective work originates, whenever possible among rocks, trees, sand, and water.

Wendy Rogers is an award winning painter and blogger, with work in private collections throughout the country. Wendy works with careful drawings and a limited palette of transparent hues. She is fascinated by complex subject matter. She loves crisply defined sepia lines that play against soft washes of glowing light, enhancing depth and adding a sense of the mysteries of nature. Dramatic lighting effects, foliage shapes and varying textures create vibrant contrasts in her work. Wendy enjoys painting portraits and landscapes. She also loves painting animals and birds.
