Meet Kristen Yann, Intern Artist at East Oaks Studio and Representational Oil Painter. Born and raised in a rural town just north of Tampa, she spent much of her childhood inspired by nature & quiet beauty. In 2018, Kristen received a BFA from Florida State University, specializing in painting and drawing. Currently, Kristen is a full-time artist, working in subjects from portrait and figure, to landscape and still life, each representing a still and contemplative quality.

“As the daughter of a Cuban immigrant, I was raised to be thankful for the little things we easily take for granted. Often, gratitude rises to awareness in moments of stillness. For me, painting creates that space. It invites me to be still, look intently, and take in the colors, shapes and beauty before me”

Meet Alex J. Venezia, Resident artist at East Oaks Studio and representational oil painter. In his words, "Inspiration comes in many forms, and usually far from the easel, but there’s nothing like seeing the work of an artist that you hold in high regard in person. It has a way of putting me in my place and motivating me to become a better painter." And so it has - Alex is featured in Southwest Art Magazine, 21 Under 31: Young Artists to Watch in 2016 and BuzzFeed article 5 Artistic Prodigies 21 And Under. Primarily self-taught, Alex had his debut solo-exhibition at Arcadia Gallery in 2019. He's studied under some of today's best known representational painters including Colleen Barry, Michael Klein, Daniel Sprick. He and his wife, Divya Melaluca, met while studying under Odd Nerdrum in Norway. They currently live and work at East Oaks Studio • Biography adapted from Alison Collins

Meet Divya Melaluca, Resident artist at East Oaks Studio. She was raised in an artistic family in Canberra, Australia and began her formal studies in art making at the Australian National University in Canberra. Shortly after completing her first year she began to consider the benefits of finding a program that would allow her to work and study in direct contact with a living Master. Subsequently she enrolled at The Nerdrum School in Stavern, Norway where she first began her education in classical technique. "The most memorable experience was being in his 'world' you feel like you're living in it. It was about the overall experience, seeing him paint, then he would critique your paintings, listening to classical music all day, swimming in the Norwegian sea, on the farm, everything was so magical and you felt like your were in a timeless place.” She and husband Alex J. Venezia met studying there and now live + work at East Oaks Studio in North Carolina.

Meet Louis Carr, co-founder of East Oaks Studio and committed classical realist. His vision for the studio was inspired by the desire to uplift the next generation of talent while fostering a community for immersive art tutelage and mentorship. Louis entered his painting profession full-time by age 20, but his journey began in early childhood. His draftsmanship and perceptive interpretation of color and form instill a vitality in his work, most recently placing him as a finalist in Portrait Society of America's 2020 competition.

Meet Michael Klein, co-founder of East Oaks Studio and dedicated academic painter. His vision for the studio was inspired by a desire to help rekindle the realism art movement, bringing to light a group of today's finest painters while creating space for the next generation to learn and thrive. He is particularly inspired by the natural world, favoring earth-based pigments and chromatic harmony as found in fruits, flowers, and other organic materials. He travels between studios in his wife's hometown (Buenos Aires, Argentina), North Carolina, and most recently Massachusetts, where he will be the Director of the , America's first museum dedicated to contemporary realist art.

Thank you so much East Oaks Studio for your generous gift to me and for all of your amazing content.
Is anyone monitoring this page?
The (4/5) short film for today shows the process of our crimping machine. Our crimping machine (sometimes called a clencher) is designed to press/crimp the ferrules and secure them to the handles. With over 150 different styles of handles and diameters, we need 30 “cogs of teeth”. These are shown in this video. They are matched precisely to a specific handle to ensure the perfect match and finish. The cogs are an engineering marvel. 🙌🏼

This was shot by the brilliant Joe Hawkins Films of East Oaks Studio

Here is our final short video (5/5) showing the Quality Control process.

Once the brushes are made, each brush is individually “wet tested” to ensure they have the perfect point, or the sharpest edge. We then soak the brush in a serum called Gum Arabic, which once dry, hardens the brushes and allows them to hold their shape better and travel safer. This serum dissolves easily in water, so once you receive your brushes from us, just wash them under a tap and you’re good to go! 🙌🏼

I’ll share the longer version of all this weeks videos tomorrow, but for now, enjoy today’s and again a huge thank you to Joe Hawkins Films from East Oaks Studio for filming these short clips. You’re amazing, Joe!

A short video of Rosemary describing how she started Rosemary & Co and highlights of brush making.

This was filmed by Joe Hawkins Films of East Oaks Studio - Joe, we are so grateful you’ve done this for us! 🙏🏼

Here goes the (3/5) short video this week, showing our old fashioned foil printer that any of you who’ve used our brushes before will recognise.

This is an old Marshall’s machine, around 80 years old. The temperature settings vary depending on which foil we are using and the lacquer (or plain wood) handles we are printing on. Pressure and heat are the 2 principles to hot foil printing; the type set (blocks and singles) are made from heavy brass and need to be engraved deeply and accurately to give high definition to the characters.

This was filmed by the brilliant Joe Hawkins of East Oaks Studio 🙏🏼

Here goes our next short video, showing the process of our new pad printer. This machine has changed how we can print on our handles. Still the same care, each brush being handled individually, but now we are able to include signatures and different styles of font on our handles.

We still have our old foil printer, which I will share with you tomorrow! (2/5)

Filmed by the amazing Joe Hawkins of East Oaks Studio 🙏🏼

It’s with great pleasure that I can start sharing some short clips of our latest video filmed by the amazing Joe Hawkins of East Oaks Studio 🙌🏼 (1/5)

I will release the full video this weekend. 🌷
Hi there! I’ve sent a couple of messages. I’m having trouble accessing purchased content. Hoping to hear from you soon.
A very elite level of instruction and work embodied in that same level of instruction
I am looking forward to Alex Venezia's next class!
