Andrea Juárez

Christine Hodgson

Tournesol au vent by Christine Hodgson

A self-taught abstract expressionist artist, Christine Hodgson is based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Her paintings have been exhibited and collected by art enthusiasts in the United States, Canada, and throughout Europe and Africa.

Through her paintings, Hodgson explores her inner self, her emotions, and her personal experience through the use of various colours and lines that appear on her canvas in what she describes as a “series of coincidences.” She also uses photography and digital tools to demonstrate the 21st century’s obsession with self-branding.

Her paintings are influenced and inspired by the works of famous artists such as Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Edgar Degas, Pablo Picasso, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Claude Monet. Her works involve a mix between realism and the abstract and focus on invincible feminine figures in different states of various emotions.

Her paintings have been exhibited in Russia and Spain and collected by art enthusiasts residing in Russia, Spain, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

Alejandra Piñango

Resonance by Alejandra Pinango

A self-taught artist living in Madrid, Spain, Alejandra Piñango has been drawing all her life. Her creativity began to flow while she was living in London, UK, and she started painting with watercolours and gouache. However, it wasn’t until she began to experiment with abstract art using acrylic paint that she truly found her artistic niche.

She now uses a mix of acrylic paint, wax crayons, charcoal, and water-soluble colour pencils on specialty mixed media paper, heavy watercolour paper, and cotton canvas.

The inspirations behind her artworks are both internal and external: she is influenced by landscapes, pictures, decor, and nature, but also by emotions and the inner working of the mind. She hopes to spread joy and happiness to art lovers who purchase her paintings, for she wants art enthusiasts to be positively impacted by her works’ bright colours, shapes, and textures.

Meghan Noonan

Two Worlds Meeting by Meghan Noonan

A self-taught artist, Meghan Noonan lives in Grimsby, Ontario, Canada. She began her artistic journey during her second year of university, where the process of painting created a space for her to practice healing and self-love.

Her passion for painting has led her to the Toronto Art Therapy Institute, where she is studying to become an Art Therapist/Psychotherapist.

Noonan uses rich, bright acrylic paint on various-sized canvases when creating her pieces. She hopes that her artwork helps to inspire self-compassion, creativity, and acceptance, and she wants art lovers who view and purchase her works to feel a deep emotional connection.

Her paintings have been shown in multiple art exhibitions in Grimsby and the surrounding Greater Toronto Area.
