Dennis Chadra Art Studio & Gallery: Artist / Instructor Dennis Chadra paints in oils specializing in still life, landscapes, portraits and figures. Located in Wheaton, IL. The major turning point in his style was due to studying several years under Wes Berrier, a traditionalist who paints in Rembrandt's technique. Dennis has also studied under Professor Chang Li of Beijing, China who paints in the French Impressionistic style. He has studied under Romel de la Torre, a prior student of Richard Schmid, in Portrait Painting.  He has documented the art techniques of Chang Li and the late Joseph DeVelasco (b.1933-d.1999). Currently, Dennis is studying under David A. Leffel in still life and portrait painting.

Maureen McKee: -  I work primarily in oil media - Oil Pastel, Oil, and Oil Monotypes and enjoy the diversity of each. In my explorations of creating visual images, inspiration comes from people and nature and everything around me.

Michael Siegel Fine Art: A fantastic artist. The pivotal moment in his studies came in 1998, when at the age of 18 he attended a painting seminar taught by Gregg Kreutz of the New York Art Students' League, who introduced him to the chiaroscuro style of the old Dutch Masters. Since then Michael has been studying privately under the incomparable David A. Leffel, formerly of the Art Student's League in NY, who is considered by many as a "20th Century Old Master." www.siegelfineart.com
