Her streets are filled with light that travels almost of its own accord within the compositions, and she has developed a nontraditional style of painting that combines impressionism, expressionism, and photorealism. The resulting paintings ensnare the eye and transport the viewer to another dimension, reminiscent of the fleeting yet mesmerizing moments that take place only in the big city.

His masterful oil paintings depict transparent rainbow colored marbles which rest upon light dappled comic book pages. Tutor’s photo-realist paintings draw the viewer in with their lifelike yet mystical qualities, capturing a moment seemingly insignificant, yet totally familiar.
