Glam Patrol

by Kate Abney | Jezebel magazine | November 1, 2012

A native of Winder, Ga., this Southern charmer and former Miss Georgia Teen USA is taking Hollywood by storm. Jena Sims, a 23-year-old model-slash-actress, recently landed the lead in Roger Corman’s 3-D film, Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader. Despite cameos on shows like Entourage, Dexter, The Vampire Diaries, CSI, One Tree Hill and Leverage, this gorgeous up-and-comer remains amazingly down to earth. Back in Atlanta, you might catch her hanging out at favorite haunts, like Flip Flops and Eclipse di Luna.

ABOUT THE ARTIST...

Shawn “Barney” Barron was born in Pomona, California but raised in Santa Cruz. Barney began surfing in fourth grade after checking out local surf wonders like Vince Collier, Rich Schmidt, and Charle Heightman. He is considered one of the most innovative and progressive surfers, whether he’s “busting flips” or surfing Mavericks, he is making people take notice. Like his surf cohorts, Barney has his own particular style and rhythm. In fact, he’s been called a “total air freak” for his entertaining moves, often a mix of skate styles, with plenty of rolls and spins.

Surfing generates a lot of interesting art, as well as people. Barney is definitely one of the most interesting surfers doing art and a very special person. He expresses his art in the water as well as on canvas. He has traveled around the world experiencing new things and making new friends. He has accomplished so much in his life, from magazine covers to conquering Mavericks to working with kids stricken with Cystic Fibrosis. He’s a true legend.

ABOUT THE ARTIST...

Nathalie Boutin was born in Cognac, France and raised in beautiful Charentes Maritimes in the south west of France near Bordeaux. She studied at the Art Institute of Seattle and later moved to Maui in 1990. It was not until her move to the islands when her talent and passion grew. Inspired by the bright vivid colors, tropical scenes, golden sunsets, and incredible beauty of the islands, Nathalie used a conceptual method of representation combined with the expressiveness through color to bring Hawaii to her canvases.

Her artwork parallels the Aloha spirit and depicts the simple scenes of the peaceful lifestyle of the islands. She is strongly influenced by earlier artists such as van Gogh, Monet and Gauguin. People consider her paintings a search for a more essential and sincere state of being. With her unique style and use of color, it is not a surprise that thousands of customers around the world, including celebrities purchase her artwork. Currently her artwork can be found at Wyland Galleries in Waikiki and Haleiwa.

ABOUT THE ARTIST...

Born and raised on the island of Maui. As I reflect on who I am today, it is evident that I must contribute my found passions, art and the ocean, to my two artistic parents Karen Moberg and Mark Kelliher. Blank canvases, artist paint brushes, and rainbows of acrylics were the toys of my youth. Sandy beaches with endless curling waves were my playgrounds. From this freedom of expression I have created my life.
 
When I was 14, my father bought me my first skimboard shaped by Brent Edwards of Maui Skimmers. I was hooked! I have been skimming and competing in the sport for 20 years and helped establish a Professional Women’s Division at the annual World Championships of Skimboarding. 
 
Today I am a professional artist and owner of Lanakila Creations. I specialize in design consultation, faux finishing, gold gilding and electroplating, as well as, large murals depicting the essence of Hawaiian culture and landscapes that supply me endless inspiration. My love of the ocean keeps me healthy and I surf and skim as much as possible. It is my lifelong goal to share the knowledge and techniques I have with the future generations of artists and athletes.

ABOUT THE ARTIST...

Innovative artist Gabriel Burchman paints with rich, earthen colors on top of gold and silver leaf, which lends to his paintings their characteristic warmth and luminous antique effect.

Gabriel was born into a family of artists in California. Both parents and grandparents were successful artists. He earned a degree in Fine Art from the University of Santa Cruz in 1997 and has been painting professionally since 2003. After trying various styles, it was the gold leaf technique he learned from his mother that really captured his focus.

Growing up in Laguna Beach he was surrounded by the ocean and the Laguna Mountains. Gabriel's fascination with nature and waves shines through in his subject matter. We are allowed to experience this vicariously through his deep appreciation for the ocean and the tremendous allure of the tranquil surroundings captivated in his art.

Gabriel's work hangs in Laguna Galleries in Laguna Beach, Calif., Sargent's Fine Art in Maui, and Genesis Gallery on the Kona coast of Hawaii. Gabriel’s work hangs in collectors home around the globe. All of his paintings are originals.
