1st Place – Helen Shulman – “See Escapes”
Helen Shulman has been a high school math teacher, a social worker and psychotherapist. Helen says that, “each position which I was involved in, I found informative and satisfying. I was very fortunate to be able to attend the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to receive training in painting and drawing. My work is influenced by rural Ohio where I grew up in the midst of an Amish community, by the painters of the Hudson River School and by what I learned from the writings of Carl Jung, which provided the intellectual underpinnings for my therapy practice.”
Helen shows her work at Kobalt Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Pryor Fine Arts, Atlanta, GA; West Branch Gallery, Stowe, VT and Allyn Gallup Contemporary, Sarasota FL. Her work is also in many public and private collections across the United States and in Europe. http://helenshulman.com

9th Place – Gigi Jones – “The Mountains”
Gigi Jones settled in Wales over 30 years ago, after graduating from University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, in Painting and Theatre Design. Her creative practice has included, amongst other things, theatre design, and art directing for TV, which she considers to be underpinned by her passion for paint.
Her current work is mainly based on landscapes in Wales and France and is generally described as figurative oil painting. However, it is the more abstract and emotive aspects of the landscape that motivate her. With colour, light, rhythm and brush stroke she aspires to capture the feeling of a place more than its physical likeness.
“I think of the landscape in some ways as a large stage set, with ever–changing light effects suggesting infinite new ‘scenes’, story lines, histories and human conditions and I am always on a quest to master my medium to develop better ways to express this.” www.gigijones.co.uk
10th Place – Roman Burgan – “Storm over Waterville”

The beautiful landscapes and dramatic skies were an inspiration to him and for more than seven years Roman has created works of art highlighting the beauty of Ireland. For the past five years Roman has had a solo exhibition in Dublin promoting Slovakian culture in Ireland. Roman’s sense of colour enables him to capture the dramatic beauty of the Irish landscape. www.romanburgan.com
