Screen Shot 2013-06-02 at 11.13.32 AMI’ve had a big throbbing art boner for Chris Uminga for several years now.

“Edgy-cute” is his thing and Chris is part of the modern neo-pop art movement.

I met Chris several years ago while exhibiting at Fan Expo in Toronto.

I was immediately IN LOVE with his adorable illustrations and quickly threw all my money at him and came home with a bunch of prints.

Cynthia Liu ~ Feature Friday Artist

Today’s Feature Friday artist is the unbeatable Kelly McKernan. Portraits and hair and emo and love it colour. Meowr.

Stephanie is a photographer, videographer and storyteller, capturing and sharing conversation starters about the more difficult topics that need to be had today around the intersections of race, gender and class.

We first “met” a couple years ago when she hired me for biz coaching for her fine art business. She loved me and my vibe and thought I was awesome. (Thanks Kim!)

That’s portraiture to me.

That’s the symbolic act of every portrait since the beginning – we’re all drawing the face of God.
