- Farmington Hills MI

"For me, one of the greatest experiences is looking at the piece I am working on and realizing I am looking at something no one in the world has ever seen before. It’s this experience that motivates me, and that I yearn to share. My deepest creative desire is to bring to fruition a previously unseen vision of beauty and introspection through my art. I create art to change our idea of what can be seen in the world." – Shadia About Shadia Shadia Derbyshire, known professionally simply as Shadia, has been painting since grade school.

Painting is my passion. Acrylic is my medium. I am Dan Knighton and I want to thank you for showing an interest in my art. I was born on August 1, 1976 and reside in Warren, MI painting full time out of my studio. Creating and capturing images is what drives my work as an artist. Whether it's an emotion I feel, what's going on in the world, TV, magazines or personal situations, they all have an effect on my work. Through painting, I can capture my visions and produce images that speak to me and my clients. I love the freedom I have when I'm creating. I've worked with a lot of clients and have exceeded their expectations in every aspect. Every client is important to me whether it's creating abstract, modern, derivative art or portraits. 100% satisfaction is my goal. I'm inspired by the challenge each piece presents to me. I'm always pushing myself to outdo my last project. I love that aha moment when inspiration hits and the creative juices are flowing. That is truly when I'm at my happiest. If you have any questions or would like to talk about my art work, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for the love and support. www.artbydak.com

Boisali Biswas

I believe a work of art bears the stamp of individuality and the national bearing of its creator when it springs from inner self. Being from India, a country with an extremely rich heritage of Art and Culture, I have always had a deep-rooted attachment to traditional art forms of India and owe some of my stylization to the captivating traditional patterns and the rich array of colors. Adapting to Western Styles and techniques, combining them with my lifelong fascination for ethnic arts around the world, have all been a melting pot for me to create a multicultural ‘canvas’. In my everyday life, my escape, my retreat, is my creative power of Art. My work is indigenous to my inner self, and is a place of solitude, passion and contemplation for me. The subject matter of my work is drawn from my own life experiences, travels, thoughts and surroundings. My art is like a journey for me through the passage of time honored techniques, traditions and influences in an endeavor to produce art for everyone. The final offering is the culmination of a series of wordless conversations between me and my artwork. By now I have spent more years here than my own homeland. Images, people, places, corners, experiences, moments all show up in my subconscious mind more than ever. No matter how much I have adapted to my new life here and embraced everything with all my heart, that love, longing is embedded deep somewhere. And hence that tormenting question of "Belonging" comes to mind constantly. Where do I really belong? My ongoing search for the answer continues through my artwork.

Susan Aaron-Taylor

- Pleasant Ridge MI

The imagery for my sculpture is sourced by dreams and shamanic journeys. Dream revelations reflect the universal as well as what is happening in my inner world. Shamanic journeys take me to non-ordinary reality, the Upper, Lower and Middle Worlds, and all that exists there. Trees, rocks, plants, animals, and insects are all living beings and have spirits. In shamanic travel I visit these non- ordinary worlds returning to connect what is revealed in the non-ordinary with the ordinary via the web of life. Once the images are revealed to me, the prima materia of wool fleece, bone, raw fiber, wood and stone along with shells, minerals, and metals join in a dance. My sculptures blend the physical and spiritual worlds creating a rhythm, balance, and harmony calling for the viewer to participate.
