Teaching Artists:

Melissa (Mesa) Matarese:

I am a multi-faceted artist who is above all else dedicated to living a soul-centric existence in right relationship with nature. My boundless curiosity and creativity has taken me on many journeys including building and living in my own off-grid tiny house on wheels, teaching yoga, traveling the world, and creating art across a multitude of mediums.

Creating art is my love and refuge. Creative energy and I have a long deep relationship traverse dime of great light and despair. Creativity has brought me comfort and a sense of belonging for as long as I can remember.

My process is one of exploration, allowing my love for adventure and the great unknown to lead the way. I naturally create without a plan, letting one stoke inspire the next.  The elements, wildlife, natural patterns, human psyche, and the subtle yet potent current of love that flows through all things are infused in my visual language.

I received my formal education from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania and Waikato University of New Zealand, where I earned her BFA. Perhaps more importantly I received my informal education by observing Mother Nature and allowing myself to make extraordinary messes and fascinating mistakes.

Gwenn Seemel:

My polka-dot cubist painting style has been delighting art lovers and inspiring artists for two decades now. In 2017, a tech company recognized my contribution to the look of the new millennium by naming one of their photo filters “the Seemel,” which I took as both a compliment and a cheeky challenge from our future AI overlords to keep making original art that matters.

Portraits are my first love, and I’m known for painting groups of people for the purpose of exploring particular issues, like how we hide from each other and how social media is harming our ability to connect. I also create conceptual work that is not portraits. There’s this feminist science picture book for the child in each of us as well as a collaborative ABC book that includes a word search.

Lucine Kaplan:

Lucine has sold out of collections, broken records at galleries, and shown at nearly 100+ exhibitions internationally. She is the greatest example of her own clientele success, applying the services she provides such as branding, editorial design, UX, curation, and consulting to her own career. Of which, spans over 11 years of experience.  Lucine wears many professional hats, with one consistent leading creative endeavor: Fine Art. Given that she is the first and only artist to work in the innovative medium of Pantyhose Hosiery as 2D physical artwork, this is the force behind her well-rounded freelance career.

Katie Truk:

2001, in the wake of 911, Katie became a teacher.  She began this journey at Creative Hands in Madison New Jersey.  Since, she has taught at the Messy Artist in South Orange, Let’s Create in Boonton (now in Denville), Visual Arts Center in Summit, and West Windsor Art Center in West Windsor.

In a classroom, as an invited speaker, in an art center, college, or in a private home Katie has had the pleasure to work with ages eighteen months through adult, handicap-able to gifted,  exploring, discussing, and experimenting with vast amounts of materials. Her role as educator forces reexamination of art history and materials constantly exploring perspectives and understanding while exposing and inspiring techniques and ideas for personal studio time.

Katie’s art, though size, colors, and texture of both wire and pantyhose change in each of the microcosm, they maintain to be a storybook of traits and personalities that can never be examined to tedium.  Usually one can find one of her pieces being exhibited in the tri-state area.
