Cissy's focus on a unique approach to portraits, through an astonishing palette of color and texture, has earned her both praise and a faithful following. Her larger-than-life portraits depict strong personalities in colorful and flowing clothes that delight the senses and evoke curiousity.

C.Smith-Marks whimsical journey through botanical environments are clearly portrayed in her vibrant and bountiful floral paintings. They visually perfume the air while gracing a red, chinese chest of drawers or backdropped against an azure blue curtain. Part fantasy, and pure joy, the cascading light surrounds both the colorful arrangement and our senses. Her bold approach to portrait and still-life is passionate and invigorating.


Paul's paintings reflect the deft hand of an architect who celebrates the bold and mysterious effects of color and dramatic lighting. His passion for urban landscapes such as Baltimore's working harbor, Manhattan cityscapes and the rustic, colonial beauty of his San Miguel de Allende, Mexico collection portray a tangible sensitivity to form, movement, and light.

His unique perspective as both artist and architect is visible through paintings anchored in reality; embracing the intellect and inviting speculation.
