                                            Kate has studied art and music almost her entire life. Her interest in art started when her grandfather showed her paintings by his cousin, the world-renowned fantasy artist Frank Frazetta. Since then she picked up whatever creative endeavors she could -- taking private painting and drawing lessons, as well as singing, writing and acting. She studied opera and harp at Stony Brook University, and has painted for charity auctions as well as commissioned pieces. She believes in the link between creativity and happiness, and that artistic expression is an important and fun way to lower stress levels while improving one's health and well-being. In her spare time, she enjoys painting tiny scenes inside sea shells, making music, blogging, and spending time with her three budgies.

                                            For as long as I can remember, I have been drawing. Art has always been an effective way of expressing myself. At age seventeen I painted for the first time and haven't stopped! I've always had a thirst for visual art and over the years I've pretty much tried all mediums, like colored pencils, watercolor, acrylic, oil, clay, etc. I quickly realized that I don't just like to make art but I also enjoy teaching others about art. To follow this passion I started working with a fine art program that teaches children all about art and it's been one of my most fulfilling achievements. One of the things I love the most about teaching is actually how much I'm learning from the students! At the end of the day, art (like pretty much everything else in life) is about learning: learning from others, from within, and from our 'opportunities to explore', not mistakes and of course you should always enjoy the process. I hope to see you soon so we can learn from each other!

                                            Cherilyn has always been an artist at heart. Her need for self-expression was evident to her family and friends; she was either drawing, dancing or singing. Awestruck by artists, dancers and musicians and inspired by their dedication and ability to evoke emotion in others, she felt a connection and a calling to create art and to perform. Cherilyn studied art at the High School of Fashion Industries in Manhattan, where she fell in love with acrylic paint. Before going to college she learned to dance competitive salsa and performed with her group. Cherilyn went on to enter the field of human services where she has taken her passions and has encouraged others to find joy in life through the arts. Acrylic painting remains to be her favorite form of expression.

Other than painting, Leanna enjoys stippling with fine pens. She also loves nature and the outdoors, which is often where she finds inspiration for her artwork.

She was raised with two creative older siblings, a Writer and an Art Teacher. Always trying to find ways to connect with them, she found her own place in the creative world. Throughout her college career, she learned many different creative approaches. She is most comfortable working with paint, however, her love for video games and animation have pushed her to explore creating digitally as well. She went to Westchester Community College to study Visual Arts, where she learned sculpture, printmaking, graphic design, drawing, and painting. Dana believes that the most important quality of art is the way it brings people together, to learn from each other, and to express themselves with each other.

                                            Born in Brooklyn and raised between Manhattan and Yonkers, the middle child of 5, life for Daniel Ortiz was very interesting. Him and his siblings always shared one common talent; art. At a very young age they all discovered they possessed the ability to draw and replicate images they saw onto paper. From the moment he began getting notoriety from close family, friends, and teachers he decided he would better his craft. Through public schooling he was able to showcase his art at a couple of different events and received achievement awards. As an adult he shifted and expanded his creative talent when he began working in retail. Becoming a visual merchant for GAP inc. he gained extensive knowledge in marketing, window displays, fabrics, textures, prints, cuts, colors, and trends. Now at age 30 he is returning back to his routes and his original love for art, becoming an instructor at Muse Paintbar. This new and exciting chapter in his life will be one his life long fulfillments.
