Artist - Valorie Schleicher

As an Artist, and Arts Advocate I utilize both sculpture and photography to express my art. Both have allowed me to view the people of world in fragments connected to cultures, ages, gender and moments in time that define these. I am always in awe of people and the opinions that make them tick; not that I want you to get my version of life but rather I want to understand yours. So for one moment in time I really see you as a fragment that belongs to a whole and put that into sculpture or onto film. Visit the website at www.vlsculptures.com

Artist - Flavio Martin Morante

Martín Morante is a visual artist living Wisconsin after moving from Uruguay, South America. He has studied Graphic Arts at the ORT University on Montevideo, Uruguay, where he came closer also to photographic disciplines, which he explores with the curiosity of a kid, despite his thirty five years of age.

"Exclusive becomes Excluding" he says, and for that reason he does not like to categorized himself as a graphic designer, photographer or painter, but as a visual artist, since it lets him explore the art world without fear. More of his work can be seen at this website www.picartonline.com or through his blog www.morantepicart.com.
