About the Artist:
Dr. Damaris Shealy is a native of the Republic of Panamá. She is an artist whose raw talent began to take shape in middle school after migrating to the US thirty-seven years ago. During the past few years, Damaris has reclaimed her passion. Despite lengthy hiatus, Damaris’ raw uncultivated talent remained intact as she is once again rendering beautiful imagines that capture the various expressions of her subjects. Damaris focuses on the sensual nature of art, aiming to depict the expressions of her subjects through a rich combination of color, texture, and detailed likeness.
Laura Shull is a working artist living in the metro Atlanta area. She specializes in oil painted portraits and figurative work featuring women dressed in historical costuming which Laura creates herself. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kennesaw State University in 2014 and has since then been exhibiting her work locally and in various shows around the Southeast.
She is currently working on original oil paintings, selling to private collectors, creating commissioned pieces, and selling prints of her work online. On most days she can be found working in her studio or hanging out with her cat, Mister Otis, in their little farm house.
Shellton LaBron Tremble was born in Georgia. He is a conceptual and abstract artist who works in all mediums and imagery. Shellton has lived mostly in the Southeast, including Florida and South Carolina. As a child, Shellton questioned his mother on why he could not draw like his brother (or paint as she did), so she said to him, “You won’t know until you try.” From there his interest sparked, skills blossomed, and self – instruction began.
Shellton has a wide range of creations from imagery to stylized art. His work is energetic and colorful! Most of his paintings are texturized or embossed. His work is very conceptual with a blend of surrealism and abstract motifs. He believes in producing works that are highly inspiring and visually provoking on canvas and wood. Shellton’s theme is “Passion, Power, and Perpetuity”!

I began doing art work when I retired. My paintings in oil consist of abstracts with heavy paint that is enough to be almost considered 3-D and landscapes that more recently are barebones concepts of trees or their skeletons in an abstract environment. I have began using old CDs and acrylic paint to make 3-D images on canvass. I am also doing small (about 5″ x 5″ x 5″) glass sculptures in abstract shapes and colors. As ideas and images come to my mind making them into something reduces time to a nonentity.
“Home Going” is a depiction of a spiritual healing. The woman who is attached to the lead angel passed away and is being taken home to gl.ory. The angel on the left has released the woman from the hospital I.V. and the medication showing that she has been set free from her earthly struggles. The framed original is 40″ x 46″
In my paintings, I strive to create a place for the observer to reside and experience it, to join in the work’s rhythm. Painting is my sanctuary, a place of refuge and contemplation, a hideout, a shrine, a place of new direction and a tribute to beauty.
For me color symbolizes the mood of calmness in our minds, spirits,and our souls. It’s brings harmony, that’s pleasing to the eyes. It is the universal language of conversation to all of us. I try to tell a story through the vibrant colors that will speak to everyone’s heart. “So as I paint for you – Live your life in Full Color.
