Canadian multimedia artist, Charlene Falk uses abstractions of nature and women as a powerful lens for illuminating the unseen and exploring the mysterious, mystical beauty present in the world everywhere we look. Although her relationship with art began as a meditative process of self-healing and discovery, she quickly found her daily life inseparable from the creative act. This intense relationship with creation has led her to create art as a means of inspiring change and building community around causes and issues which are important to her, such as preserving the sometimes-ignored beauty of nature or celebrating the dignity and strength of women.
Making use of a variety of media, including acrylic, oil, and spray paint along with charcoal and pastel, Falk heavily layers her paintings—lending them a rugged, organic quality. This, coupled with her deft yet subtle mastery of color and light allow, her images to project a significant amount of depth and raw emotion, enveloping viewers and transporting them into Falk’s world where they are invited to gaze firsthand upon all of the brilliant subtleties that Falk, herself, celebrates.

Having spent the majority of her life in the Pacific Northwest, Carol Balyozian presently resides in Arizona with Henry, husband and life partner.
Carol started working with fibers and textiles --- patterns and textures began to show strongly in her work. Painting silk as wearable art she was quickly drawn to Shibori, a Japanese technique which uses both wax and folding methods as a way to resist dye and create patterns -- patterns with textures. Generally self taught, Carol has enjoyed chalk pastels, pen and ink, Sumi-E painting, collage and other paper arts. Paper arts which include the interesting world of Origami --- an art form pursued for many years.
Over the past several years she has kept a camera in hand and become accomplished as both a photographer and a printmaker. Patterns and textures continue to be a strong visual theme in much of her work -- both past and present. More recently Carol has found herself immersed in clay --- adding another dimension to her work, giving way for further exploration with form and volume.
