Miron Abramovici

"I am a well-known researcher and textbook author in computer engineering (Google my name if you are curious). But two years ago I discovered my inner artist and I am happy to share with you the results of this amazing self-discovery.
Photography became my passion, obsession, and a main reason of being. I hope you can see the passion behind the artwork. I love to discover the world through the eye of the camera, to see its hidden beauty or unusual features of “ordinary” things. My artwork translates my fascination with abstract patterns, reflections, and surrealistic images.
My photo “Guardian at the mental ward” took the first place in the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP – NJ) annual Fine Art Photograpahy Competition."http://mironab.redbubble.com/

Mark Roberts

Mark Roberts - Bossicus
I began producing Art in 2007 after being involved in starting an Art group for individuals with mental health issues. I work in oils mainly but also enjoy charcoal for its directness in making an image. I have mainly concentrated on figurative and landscape work and also enjoy combining the two. My favourite works come from expressing some part of my personal story. Art has given me a whole new focus in life and I find it a very positive experience.
