As a Navy veteran and an artist of numerous trades, Jonhda Starling is versatile in many traditional media, such as oil paint, acrylics, inks and watercolors. Starling gives peculiar attention to the expressions of characters engaged in industrial and science fiction themed environments, or even the environment itself. These visual elements are often used to encourage healing and resolution from struggles originating from varied underlying symptoms of depression. This, in a way, can enable those who have difficulty finding purpose for their lives, as well as her own.
Everything I internalize, the experiences I have, the people in my life, my hopes and dreams, my faith are all reflected from heart, mind, and soul through the prism of my intuitive lenses resulting in artistic expressions. I attracted to my life a muse and divine inspiration to create vivid abstract expressions that tell a story, define my journey, and inspire me to embrace all that is good in my life.

My name is Jonathan Roberts and I'm a Veteran and local artist. Currently I'm working with acrylics and gouache after a 5 year pause in painting. With an itch that needed to be scratched I began painting my favorite TV and movie actors. I currently have 27 pieces for sale at the VFW.
I make happy art. I’m pleased when people smile and chuckle after viewing my work. I love when children point and squeal.

Drawing has been a visual tool for me to express and understand thoughts, emotions, and the complexity of human experience since I was a kid. My art gives me an outlet to communicate a concept or feeling by taking out the constructs of language and personal bias. Growing up in the mid-’80s and ‘90s I surrounded myself with comics, graffiti, anime, DJ music culture, Sci-Fi, and fantasy. My art is a hybrid of these influences infused with social commentary.
Since picking up a film camera over twenty years ago, Chuck has continually pushed himself to learn new techniques and advance his understanding of the art of capturing light. Upon moving to Colorado in 2008, he was introduced to an entirely new environment that has provided endless opportunities to capture the beauty of nature. Experiencing the grandness of the landscapes and the vastness of the Milky Way skies above, Chuck is always looking for new opportunities to showcase the two together, and create images that many people only see in their imagination.
