Terri Hallman was born in Wisconsin in 1962. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in design from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design which she attended from 1986 until 1992.
Hallman worked in the design field from 1987 until 1991, winning two International awards for Packaging Design.
What is so special about Hallman’s abstract works is that at first they seem primitive, her subjects are simple. Yet upon further observation there are layers of depth and emotion. Her colors are remarkable in that they are super-saturated, and there is a curious textural quality in her pieces that is uncommon, lending to her unique appeal.

Gerhard Nesvadba is the son of Austrian parents. He was born in 1941 in the village of Ober-Ramstadt, near Darmstadt, which is in the Hessen region of Western Germany.
Immediately after the war, at the age of four, he moved with his parents to Vienna where he lived for many years before settling in Upper Austria.
At the age of seventeen Gerhard completed his formal art education and four years later became a professional artist and illustrator. His fame in the international art world soon spread and his first public exhibition was held in Stockholm in 1968. This was followed with exhibitions in many parts of Europe including Gottenburg, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Vienna. Neswadba has since held exhibitions in both the UK and the USA.
The American artist Russel May of Prestonburg, Kentucky, who studied art under Gerhard Neswadba in Vienna, described it as “The greatest experience of my life”.
Today he is among the most reproduced of all European artists which has greatly enhanced his reputation.
