Eva Sim-Zabka is a Brentwood resident and an expressive contemporary painter working in acrylics, oils and mixed media. As a formal psychologist she was always interested in creative self-expression. Art turned out to be a perfect playground for her to continue the journey. She paints intuitively and experiments a lot during the painting process. Her art evokes emotions. She was born in Poland, lived in Germany and moved to Austin in 1998. She is an active member of Creative Arts Society. Her work was juried into several shows and won awards. She has been invited to show her paintings in California and Europe. She enjoys painting full time and is thriving in her new career.
Natalya Crier paints in oil and acrylic with a particular focus on flowers, animals, birds and lively natural settings. She has been a local business owner in Austin over the last 30 years. She holds a degree in Art and Theater in costume design form the formal Soviet Union.
Austin painter Phillip Wade is unusual in painting an incredible variety of subjects, animal and human portraits, landscapes, museum interiors, and the large story-telling paintings (The Mad Hatter, Puss in Boots) that were inspired by his years painting at his mother’s home in Cornwall, England. He has been an instructor in Painting at The Contemporary Austin (Laguna Gloria) since 1997, and is represented in innumerable collections, e.g. The Driskill Hotel, the actress Diane Ladd, and the Tyler Museum of Art. After graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1981, he studied with Bob Levers and Kelly Fearing at U.T. Austin, earning an MFA in 1984.
