Stefan Baumann, a respected artist and oil painting instructor from the Bay area, now lives in Mt. Shasta. His passionate love of nature and use of light in his artwork began in Lake Tahoe and blossomed at Stanford University. He paints, and teaches students how to paint, the beauty of the forests and rural landscapes near his home and in the Rogue Valley.
Sue Bennett is a classically trained artist who paints to express beauty. "My intent is to capture the heart of the subject and I get completely caught up in it." Her paintings have been included in over 45 exhibits around the nation. She works most frequently in transparent watercolor, however she also enjoys opaque watermedia and pastel.
The differences between my art and photography are night and day, like my varied interests. I’m constantly amazed by the serene beauty and magical happenings that happen in Nature. Architecture has always been an interest of mine, as well, and the juxtaposition of the organic with man-made is most interesting. My drawings and paintings often convey a sensual feel. I depict the beautiful nude female using a unique simplification of form.
I paint in an effort to give solid form to ideas that increase the depth of my experiences in the process of living. American Modernists and their quest to discover a history of art particular to the country they lived in connect me in my personal exploration with European impressionist and post-impressionist artists. I strive to continue their work and further my own understanding of how art concurrently creates and connects us to our culture.
My artwork is in private and corporate collections world-wide. I am an award-winning artist, past gallery-owner, and my art has been in many exhibitions. I work in various mediums, subjects and types of art and am a member of several art societies, and past member of many more. Please see Jillian's listing in the Teaching Artists directory.

My background in art education empha- sizes a strong foundation of classical art training, greatly influencing my artistic focus and direction. My intent is to capture, on paper or canvas, mysterious and thought provoking scenes. Nature with its moods and soft edges has always inspired me to draw and paint abstracts, landscapes or figure studies. My art is in private collections nationwide; I've exhibited in galleries and juried shows in S. California, NW Arkansas and S. Oregon.
Growing up in Hawaii, I absorbed the tastes and cultures of the Islands. My father, a photographer, also blessed me with an artistic eye for exotic colors and shapes. In 1991 I came to Oregon; my unique handsewn cotton Japanese and Hawaiian print Happi Coats and Kimonos, hand-painted silk scarves and wall hangings can be found at select art venues throughout the state. I'm often commissioned to create custom pieces to wear or to decorate the home or office.

There is a satisfaction that comes from knowing where to put things: colors and marks – knowing that this orange needs just this much more ochre and this green needs a tiny bit more yellow. I don’t know how I know these things; there isn’t a logic behind it, but I just know it. After a while that knowing gets weaker and I have to return to the painting later. Then I work again with confidence and a story slowly begins to unfold.

I developed a passion for expressing myself through watercolor in the early eighties. I am driven to be the best that I can, and know that this venture will take me the rest of my life. If I can show others how to see and feel an emotional attachment to the world around them, I will have become successful with my art. I believe anyone can do what I do…the important thing is the desire. Expressing myself with my art is something that is at the very core of who I am.
