Biographies of the artists

My name is Bradford Williams and I am a Nashville, TN native who has called Chicago home for the past 16 years. I received my B.F.A. in Painting from Western Kentucky University in 2004 and my B.F.A. in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 2011. I thrive on wearing multiple hats as far as art whether that be digitally, Acrylic, Watercolor, or India Ink. I am currently focusing on commission portraits and independent social statement pieces. My independent work focuses primarily on the human figure with a preference in creating imagery that relates the story of a moment, confrontation of a social issue, or causes self-reflection while my commission portrait work has varied from human figure, couples, children to pets. My commission work also allows me to work with clients to get their perspective on the subject of the work giving more freedom for character and soul to be integrated into the portrait. 

Brianna Robinson is an illustrator from the Northwest Suburbs of Illinois whose provocative work delves into the realms of sensuality and implied eroticism with cheeky and creative themes that speak to many different audiences. Bri navigates the complexities of desire and intimacy, infusing their work with a blend of illustration and graphic design. Growing up around a small town mindset, she captures the essence of human sensuality that some never experience until they either leave town or grow older, inviting viewers to explore the depths of their own desires through an almost voyeuristic perspective. With a portfolio that challenges conventions, sparks conversation, and mocks certain topics, Brianna's art serves as a celebration of the diverse expressions of sexuality and an invitation to embrace the beauty of eroticism without hesitation or shame.

Lauren Temiyakarn can’t commit to a particular medium - and she’s okay with that!  For Lauren, art has been a lifelong passion, though her career was spent in healthcare before pursuing art full time.  As someone who thrives on change, she frequently experiments with different media and subject matter.  Her most recent collection employs charcoal and pastels to focus on the human form.  She is motivated by what can be communicated with a single mark and the restraint needed to stop when the message becomes clear.

Bernie Martinez is a visual artist from the Windy City, Chicago. His love for art has been around since he could hold a crayon, even though his skills have grown and changed. The love of creating that existed in all of us as a child is still there, unchanged. His work is not defined by a single medium or style. It is one of exploration and the enjoyment of creating. He is a self-taught artist who learns from observing and from creating daily. He has found an amazing community of artists virtually and in person, which is his source of inspiration that he did not know he needed until now. He strives to grow as an Artist and to make an impact with his dedication to his craft. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, feel free to send him a message. If you want to follow along on his journey, follow his Instagram account. @bernabemtz

I am a commercial photographer during the week and a passionate portrait photographer when he can find the time. Using leftover commercial set components I create a narrative and capture another side of the human condition.
