Don is an award winning artist and is collected in the US and abroad. He founded Wunderlee Art Gallery in 1998-2012 in New Haven Ct. Don enjoys paintng a great deal as well as working with clients to help them fulfill their vision when buying or commissioning art.. "Living with original abstract art should be an exciting visual experience you look forward to everyday. Art enriches our lives beyond words, feeds our spirit for life and should make our living and work spaces interesting and vibrant. Putting together a collection that fits your aspirations is essential and requires time and deliberation. However sometime you just have that aha! moment when you know the piece is speaking to you, this is what collectors know about themselves and often there is risk in living with a piece that may stretch the surrounding decor...but it is worth it!
As an architect and artist, my focus has always been to engage people in a shared experience, capture an authentic sense of place, and create environments that are both functional and beautiful. I view the functional fine art offered through my newest venture, Studio Vlock, as a natural evolution of that vision, one that enables me to design pieces that inspire memorable experiences and create unique environments for social gathering, quiet reflection, and visual delight. Each collection of ‘Fireballs,’ ‘ScreenPlays’ and other sculptural elements tells a story—real or imagined—that is inspired by nature and shared experience. My canvas includes sustainable materials and repurposed objects. Fireballs are re-imagined steel mooring buoys; an object that once anchored boats now serves as an anchor for communal gatherings, transforming outdoor spaces into intimate places. ScreenPlays elevate the fireplace screen from the mundane to the magical; creating an architectural focal point and conversation piece. For me, the work is a journey of discovery and a process of collaboration; an adventure in storytelling and a celebration of nature where everyday objects and spaces become extraordinary experiences. Every piece is handcrafted and custom made for you and your space. Fireballs are designed for wood burning, propane or natural gas. Studio Vlock is delighted to be represented by ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens, in Napa Valley, CA. My work will be on display and used as intended – functional fine art; at Auberge de Soliel Resort, Aerena Gallery at Ma(i)sonry, and their newest venue, RiverHouse in Napa. We can ship anywhere within the US or Internationally.

My work is both sophisticated and uniquely infused with a signature joie de vivre. Inspired by the exploration of vibrant color stories, stylish patterns, and iconic silhouettes, I create contemporary visuals on acrylic full of playful personality. My pieces have a lively graphic allure that will distinctively complement your décor. In 2012, I started combining my original designs with iconic shapes. Using my passion for interior design and drawing from my professional experience as a graphic designer and textile artist, I used silhouettes of children, animals, fruits, as well as abstract shapes to create unique, large-format visuals on acrylic. This work soon caught the eye of interior designers, who began to commission pieces for their clients. My custom silhouettes allow me to create one-of-a-kind pieces for my clients, turning their children, pets, their own, or other silhouettes into customized art pieces. In the case of my people’s silhouettes, children, and adults. My work is a celebration of what I call the warrior mask, the face. My patterns and color schemes represent infinite possibilities and pure potential. The joy of being alive. My work has been showcased in the popular Art & Design blog 'The English Room' and was featured in House & Garden magazine. Houzz awarded me with “Best of Houzz” from 2015 through 2019. Originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, I reside in the USA since 1990, becoming a citizen in 1999. I am a member of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, and served on its board of directors from 2010 until 2017. I am also a member of the Art Society of Old Greenwich. My work is available at: SCHWARTZ DESIGN SHOWROOM, a luxury interior design shop for the trade, in Stamford, Connecticut & Metuchen, New Jersey.

The perfect compliment to any home interior, Julia Contacessi's contemporary and clean canvases add color and warmth. ‘When you layer on the paint just right, so that it dances across a wash of color, a new level of dimension is created. Combine that dimension with the exploration of composition and color and I’ve just begun to capture something meaningful. My style is single-minded and focused on the simplicity of beauty in the moment. My goal is to drown out the noise and clutter to find a sense of calm through light. The end result is clean, fresh and modern.’ See more work at <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://www.JuliaContacessi.com">http://www.JuliaContacessi.com</a> and <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="http://instagram.com/fineartcontacessi/">http://instagram.com/fineartcontacessi/</a>
