Award Winning Artists

Posted on 18 August 2016

A stunning original artwork will never go unnoticed, so why not be certain the art in your space is the best of the best? Why not put an award winning piece in your home or office?

In addition to “loving it,” this takes your artwork above and beyond—certifying its merit and worth. Apart from the emotional connection we can so deeply have with a work of art, achievement such as these provide us with confidence we’ve chosen the right piece! This week we’re highlighting six spectacular artists who received Gallery Contract Awards from this year’s Art Comes Alive.



Our first gallery contract award winner as well as purchase award winner, Karen Robey creates intricate feminine forms that are nature inspired. Karen is a self-trained artist who possess a lifetime of broad exposure, desire, and understanding of the visual arts, music, and business profession. This series “Botanicalia” embraces all that nature has to offer. With sharpened pencil in hand Karen creates exquisite, yet imaginary, drawings that are inspired by the delicate beauty of the outdoors.

Cindy as an eye for detail, precision, composition and color, and these are beautifully married in her abstract works. Her works mesmerize with multi-layers of metallic and paint mediums. She is from the school of thought that in order to be a great abstract painter, you must be a traditional one first. This is why on any given day, you can catch Cindy in her studio working on a captivating sculpture or mixed media piece, while waiting for the layers of one of her realistic oil paintings to dry.

After two decades as an electronics engineer and strategic marketing executive working in the semiconductor industry Dave Romero made a plan to start his own business as a professional photographer. Dave's photographs illustrate confidence and precision. Their scale and visual impact are breathtaking. Viewed from a distance, Dave's work offers bold strokes of colorful geometry, but up close, they are a wealth of fine detail that leaves the viewer eternally captivated.

Jamie received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Painting, and worked as a graphic artist and in sales for nearly ten years. In 2010, she rekindled her passion for abstract painting, and developed an eye for home design. Jamie's artworks emphasize color, texture, and layering to create one unforgettable statement piece that pairs perfectly with a traditional or contemporary home.

Jolie's work is about the exploration of the evocative emotional power of random patterns and visual events in nature. Feeling straight from the heart is squeezed through the tube and brushstroked onto the canvas. Built layer on layer, the works draw the viewer into intricate, richly textured and expressive surfaces. As an avowed colorist, Jolie draws in paint, vibrant or subdued, to create visceral and lyrical all-over compositions comprised of organic and biomorphic shapes.
