She is a graduate of the Atlanta College of Art, and has an exhibition list that features several solo shows at Mason Murer Fine Art, inclusion in group shows at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, and Marietta Cobb Museum of Art. Her work examines how self similar patterning, vast yet persistent fragility, liminal space, and the effects of time come together to at once provide comfort and a glance at hopelessness, when faced with the terrible beauty of nature
and our embodiment.
Evla Hreiarsdottir was born in Iceland and studied at Iceland Academy of Arts. She does not focus on the most apparent aspects of the landscapes she documents. Rather, it is the “lines and shapes that appear in crumbling hills, broken basalt columns and weathered rocks” that attract her attention. She creates a body of work with the contours of abstraction, but one that also communicates a strong feeling of air, space and the outdoors.

Her work was recently featured in Domino Magazine, DC Modern Luxury, Goop, Apartment Therapy, One Kings Lane, and in numerous blogs, magazines, and publications.
Dominique Labauvie was born in France. Most of Dominique Labauvie's sculptures are a contradiction. Forged from tough steel, they appear as fragile traceries, more about void than mass. The works are like three-dimensional drawings and share the same linear elegance as Matisse's later prints in black and white. His work is in several museum collections in Paris. He and his wife, master printer Erika Greenberg-Schneider, rarely exhibit their art locally.
San Franciscan born artist Michelle Bird has been creating all her life. She received her painting education in The Netherlands focusing the techniques used by the Dutch Masters.

Her work is represented in private and corporate collections in the United States, Switzerland, France, and The Netherlands.
