After moving to the East Coast she studied under Harriet Winchester and showed successfully in various art galleries on the east coast as well as other art galleries in the U.S. She has been included in juried shows at Museums in Fitchburg, Lowell and Andover. She was awarded the Golden Easel on October the 3d, 2001 by the Nashua Area Artist Association. She has had her artwork featured in articles in Newspapers and Magazines
William C Turner, received his BFA from NH Institute of Art, Manchester and was awarded national recognition for his paintings from the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylics, and Allied Artists of America, as well as many awards from regional exhibitions. His works are featured in an article in the Fall/Winter 2011 Monadnock Living Magazine.
His love of New England, and natural and mechanical “horsepower” have been a source of inspiration for him. As a life-long learner, Bill is currently exploring new and various techniques in rendering his art.
Monika Roglic, a Croatian-American artist, teacher and award winner psychology graduate, dedicates her life to painting the things she loves the most: the Mediterranean. She works with oils and acrylic, as well as watercolor on silk. Monika is a pianist so while she paints she listens to classical music. She is a published author(poetry), who keeps the tradition of her homeland alive in these turbulent 'global' times by taking photographs of the old world of Dalmatia. Monika had an exhibit at the Croatian Heritage foundation in 2010.
What makes her work unique is that she hand paints fabric-silk and then transforms the pieces of colorful art into a simple pattern that is wearable.
