About the Artists
Heather Mingo has been creating visual art since she was a child. She attended The School for Creative and Performing Arts as a visual art major. She owned and operated a mural business prior to opening a studio in 2001 where she began showing original pieces. Since then she has shown her work in galleries both locally and nationally, and her work is included in several private collections. Her current work is multi-dimensional mixed-media that combines vintage papers, colored pencil and acrylic paint.
Priya Rama’s art, like her life, revolves around her chronic migraines. Her work attempts to represent the multi-dimensional images of her mind onto a flat surface. Each piece she creates evolves from a meditative and introspective process, wherein she becomes one with her art: It is being aware in that moment, acknowledging the pain, and losing herself to the unfolding imagery. Often, completing a painting acts as a release, and reminds her that her mind can do more than just process pain: It can transform pain into beauty. She hopes that her paintings inform viewers about the migraine experience.
Katherine Thomas is a freelance illustrator, working with colored pencil, graphite and pen. Her imaginative artwork has been included in many juried exhibitions, as well as private collections, throughout the United States, Canada, Great Britain and Denmark. Commercial Illustration work includes projects for MadTree Brewery, Verdin Bell Co., and story illustrations for California Kids Magazine. Her drawings have been featured in Colored Pencil Magazine, and also the books, Strokes of Genius 8: Expressive Textures, and Strokes of Genius 9: Creative Explorations, published by Northlight Books. Katherine also served as a judge for the 2016 Congressional Art Competition. Originals and prints of her artwork can be seen at the Pendleton Art Center, in Cincinnati. Katherine is a member of the Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators, and Colored Pencil Society of America, with signature status.
