Korin Faught was raised in Colorado, and she received her B.F.A. from Art Center College of Design in 2004. Faught finds inspiration in mid-century modern design, fashion, and white on white. Faught’s work has been exhibited at galleries in Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, San Francisco and Seattle as well as published in ArtNews, Abitare, and American Art Collector magazine. She has also been a featured artist on Style.com, Artist A Day and Juxtapoz.
Krista Huot spent her formative years in the forests of British Columbia, where she was formally trained in fine arts and classical animation. Her paintings explore the ongoing emotional relevance of archetypes in folklore, using inspiration from vintage storybook illustration, folk art, animation and kitsch. Huot’s work has been shown at galleries throughout North America, including Los Angeles, Portland and New York. She currently resides in Montreal, Quebec.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Mia graduated as valedictorian from Otis College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration and a minor in Creative Writing. Fascinated by story and character, Mia’s paintings are “personality portraits” that illustrate the spirits, inner demons, conflicting emotions and imagination of her subjects. Mia currently shows her work in prominent galleries across the U.S., and her work has been published in ImagineFX, Spectrum, the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, and the Creative Quarterly.
