A lot of my flower paintings have sold already, but here are some that I still have left in my inventory.
Feel free to email me for sizes and pricing: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am so proud of Evan!
In this news clip with the very talented architectural visionary, Jim Bronzie, you will see several of Evan’s paintings showcased throughout this amazing newly renovated, contemporary house located in Hyde Park, Cincinnati, OH. Also, in the master bedroom, one of our collaborative works is featured, a painting of a horse we created for the Wash Park Art Mediation show. All of the beautiful furniture staging was done by Renan Menninger and Voltage Furniture.
Not only is this house an amazing specimen of contemporary design and architecture, it also has the highest ranking available because of its minimal environmental footprint.
Be sure to check out the news clip here: Our Art in Cincinnati’s 1st Platinum LEED Certified home!
Here is a sneak peak of the foyer, featuring lighting by Switch Lighting and Design. It’s incredible how perfect Evan’s work is for this space!

“Every child has the right to feel special. Portrait of a Soul provides these young heroes with the opportunity to shine like a star. ”
Evan and I have had such a wonderful time working with Cincinnati philanthropists, Lee and Sue Schaefer, founders of Portrait of a Soul. Portrait of a Soul is a non-profit organization that pairs artists with children and young adults who were born with craniofacial conditions. Each artist spends time getting to know the child and then paints a portrait of them that depicts their inner and outer beauty.
Check out this wonderful news clip about Portrait of a Soul that features an interview with Logan Brinson, his mom Rene, and Lee Schaefer in our beautiful art studio at Bromwell’s: New organization redefines portrait of healing. Organization provides patients optimistic outlet.
This has been such a special experience for me and Evan. It has been a creative endeavor that has enlarged our hearts with love and hope and purpose. Painting Logan and Loren has been one of the most important things we have ever done.
We hope that on on Saturday, June 13th, you will join us between 10am-3pm at Eisele Gallery to see the many wonderful portraits of these children by some of Cincinnati’s top artists.
Eisele Gallery is located at 5729 Dragon Way, Cincinnati, OH 45227
Here’s an insight into our artists’ brains!
Evan and I hope you enjoy this view behind the scenes of where we draw our inspiration (individually as artists) and the process of collaboration as husband and wife.
This talk was filmed by Evan Mauntel at Holly Doan Spraul’s beautiful gallery in downtown Cincinnati, Wash Park Art.
It’s good to give talks about your work. As much as artists often like to stay in that mode of purely visual thinking, and they don’t like the process of translating art into verbiage, it often helps you on a number of levels to prepare an artist’s talk. One of the biggest things it does is help you to clarify for yourself and to your audience (and potential clients) what your work is about. Clarifying the meaning, or the common themes in your work helps you to figure out what your personal brand is; or to use a less marketing-ish term, your personal vision and mission as an artist. This is good because it can allow you to not get bogged down in things that are irrelevant to your interests. (Artists often like pretty or provocative things and while these can be fun, they can also lead us to distractions and procrastinations. Ooh! I see something sparkly . . . )
So getting clear on your personal vision aids you in whittling things down to discover the essence of what you’re trying to achieve as a visual communicator.
We’ll be posting a video soon of our talk soon! Thanks so much to Evan Mauntel for filming!
We had a great turn out at our opening March 13th and also on Final Friday March 27th!
Here we are in front of our painting of a koi pond, which was inspired by our trip to the monastery in Valldemossa, Mallorca, where Chopin and George Sands stayed over 100 years ago. We saw a lovely koi pond at the monastery when we visited.
Wash Park Art Gallery owner, Holly Doan Spraul is a wonderful gallery director to work with–very professional and very fun!
We had 4 of our latest collaborations in the show:
Here are some of Evan’s newest abstract paintings:
And some shots of works I’ve done inspired by Valldemossa, Mallorca, Cincinnati’s own Anderson Ferry, Cade’s Cove in Tennessee, and the cardinals we saw this winter in Sayler Park:
Chopin’s Rose, the painting on top in the image below, sold at the reception on March 27th!
We had a great time making these works!
We hope that you can make it out to the show before it comes down. It will be up through April 19th.
After a visit to the gallery, you can enjoy a lovely spring stroll like we did that night through beautiful Washington Park and then have dinner at the Anchor or Zula!
Wash Park Art Gallery is located near Music Hall and Memorial Hall at 1215 Elm Street, Cincinnati, Ohio. The gallery is open :
this February, Evan and I spent many of our snow days indoors painting butterflies for our show at Wash Park Gallery.
It was a fun way to make the most of being stuck inside!
Once we were able to get back to the studio again, we had the challenge of placing all of the butterflies and the koi fish we had been painting at home during the snow days.
Here we are the day of our installation, just finishing hanging the koi painting.
