  1. Lisa Schmitz, the owner of Whispers From the Moon, shows us how to use Catalyst Blades and Wedges with heavy body acrylic paints and mediums.

    As an artist and clinical therapist, Lisa draws upon a variety of body-centered modalities, indigenous ceremony and creative expression. Lisa loves using heavy body paints and mediums to cover large areas of canvas, then working back in with color & texture detail. Located in the Historic Oak Park Art District, Whispers From the Moon is a haven for creative expression and personal awareness.

  5. Baila Miller and Jean Nerenberg, friends of 40 years and studio mates, show us their favorite techniques using Catalyst Blades and Wedges with Golden Fluid Acrylics.

    When she retired from her academic professorship, Baila began painting in 2000. Her love of color & nature are explored in her painting, which is reminiscent of Helen Frankenthaler and Jackson Pollock, whose work she admires. Using a variety of techniques, such as layering, scraping and brushing paint, Baila explores the play of paint, texture, rhythm, color, and form.

    Jean studied art at Northwestern University, and then moved on to the SAIC for further art studies. Her work is abstract, that she starts by applying pigments randomly, and then looking for inspiration and guidance from the accidents and incidental marks. Jean’s overall theme has been life in all its forms and the future survival of the earth, be it plants, planets or landscapes.
