Elyse Martin is an educator and artist. She creates large scale abstract works as well as haunting encaustic paintings. Julia Hamilton works in bones--using skulls to make beautiful pieces in a variety of colors, often metalic.

Martin paints both abstracts and encaustic works. She is based in the Chicago area. She teaches art at Jordan Community School in the city.  Martin’s work has appeared in numerous juried art exhibits and she has won local and national art competitions.

Hamilton, in addition to being an artist, is a talented make-up artist. Her work with making skulls and antlers in to art was part of the inspiration to do this show. Her work is beautiful and decorative. She is also owner of Pretty Windy City, a mobile artistry  team working in make-up.They do airbrush make-up for weddings and more. Make-up as artists remind me of what grafitti artists were a few years back. Not considered even a starting point for fine art. But it is.
