'Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it' (Confucius)
Originally from Lorient, in beautiful Brittany (Celtic part of France), Photography and Travels have been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember.
After graduating from an International School of Management specialized in Europe - Asia international business, I have been working as a consultant for European companies willing to expand their activities into Asian markets for over 10 years.
As part of my job, my travels have taken me to many parts of Europe and Asia as well as other locations around the globe, allowing me to photography the beauty of our world, its natural scenery, its people and its cities. My portfolio is thus mostly a spontaneous exploration of the world with my camera in hand.
Most of the time I use a Nikon D700 with a NIKKOR AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens. It's reliable, has a fast shutter speed, covers a wide range of shooting situations and you don't see noise even at 6400iso. I also sometimes use a Panasonic DMC-TZ7 if the situation does not me allow to use my D700.
I enjoy many types of photographic subjects and styles, but it is my love for artistic digital enhancement that really gets my heart pumping and creative juices flowing. While I have a few shots that are heavily manipulated, I prefer to apply subtle adjustments and changes. I touch up my 'digital negatives' in Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop to recreate and enhance what I felt and saw when the capture was made.
I particularly enjoy using texture layers, selective color or monochrome / duotone post-processing to create a very specific and unique atmosphere and mood in my images. This is certainly the reason why my photographic style has often been described as 'highly atmospheric'.

Loredana Messina was born in Palermo, Sicily, but now lives in London with her family where she is a teacher of Italian despite having studied law at Palermo University. She started painting oil on canvas in 1971 and has matured over time. A self taught artist who loves nature from where she draws inspiration. An artist of a sensitive nature who brings out in her canvases the manifest beauty found amongst everyday life which she brings to us with her uniquely vivid colour spectrum. Her love for her country ensures that she represents her land in many of her canvases which with her intense colours ignite authentic emotions from within.

Hi, I’m Yelena Dyumin, both a professional artist and art educator. The creation and refinement of my unique style of art has been something I've spent decades perfecting. Although I’m a current resident of Sydney, Australia, I was born and raised in Omsk, Russia. As a result of this mixed culture, my aim has been to blend my eclectic background in European art, experiences, and classics with the fresh Australian colors of both life and nature I've come to find.
I’m most passionate about painting and drawing and have been involved with the two since childhood. I've always loved the experience of losing myself in thought and diving into the world of art and imagination. This creative introspection allows me to produce art that is not only beautiful, but one-of-a-kind. I've been told again and again that this uncanny ability to illustrate the exceptional beauty of everyday life is what makes my artwork lovable.
Throughout my career, I've accumulated a vast repertoire of artistic techniques that have allowed me to better illustrate my intentions as an artist. My aim is to create unforgettable works and impart a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings whenever I begin a new piece. As a result, most of my work conveys the synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, and the real and imaginary.
I am a highly educated and experienced artist as well as an accomplished lecturer specializing in painting, graphics, and art history/theory. I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Painting at Omsk State University, with first class honors. About a year later, I began my 14 year career as a lecturer in Fine Arts at the same university. During that time, from 1992 -1994, I took an Advanced Master Course in Fine Arts at the Repin State Academic Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg, Russia as well as a Professional Fine Arts Master Class at V.I. Surikov State Academic Art Institute in Moscow, Russia.
I've been involved in a number of professional organizations throughout my career such as the Russian Association of Painters & Sculptors and the Russian Academy of the Arts. Today, I am an active member of the Australian Multicultural Arts & Media Association. I have been featured in prominent art galleries and exhibitions in Russia, Europe, Asia, the Middle East as well as Australia.
As a result of my education and experience, my finely tuned mixed media techniques encompass numerous art forms such as acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, pencil, pen and ink, graphite, charcoal, etching, lithography and xylography.
I believe that my constant exposure to new ideas and types of art is what has allowed me to develop into the artist I am today.
I am a passionate artist and my ultimate aim is to focus on the quality of my work rather that the quantity of it and impart a small piece of myself as an artist into each and every one of my creations.
