Water is her calling and an oil brush is never far from her reach. Wanting to touch the creatures and seaweed washed up in her canvas, transports you to the ocean’s paths. The creative process begins with collecting materials from her long walks on the beaches. She artfully places them together so that the onlooker has a visual story that is pleasing to the eye and evokes the essence of sea life and nature.
Any person familiar with the work of portrait painter Johanna Spinks will tell you this British-born artist is as much a storyteller as she is a classically trained portrait artist. Whether she is bringing the vibrancy of a local community to life through her Face of Ventura and Face of Malibu portrait projects or rendering a model in an imagined Parisian interior, Johanna’s whimsical and romantic style is the signature attribute of her award-winning work.
Gay Summer Rick paints iconic urban coastal landscapes, from Los Angeles to New York City, rendered with a keen sense of place and a flair for abstraction. Sparsely populated though replete with objects and evidence of the built environment, her poetic, palimpsestic aesthetic yields scenes that are at once dreamlike and familiar, painterly, evocative, and emotionally resonant. Revealing an unexpected beauty in commonplace elements within the urban landscape, her unique style is a melding of impressionism and color-field painting describing the quiet vibration of life where the city meets the sea.

My work is personal and comes from my heart. It concerns my life and emotions good or bad, pain or joy. If my art takes the viewer to another place and makes them think about or imagine the story, one that they can enjoy and relate to, I have succeeded.
