Each piece reflects the perspective of the woman portrayed in a way that exudes strength and hope.
Samantha Lee Osner: Embracing Humanity and Nature

Her artworks examine the relationship between humanity and nature, and the small details in each of her pieces draw in the viewer.
Martin Osner: Exploring Life and Moments of Joy
Martin Osner’s pieces embody the exploration of life, moments of hope and joy that remain etched in our subconscious for a reason. His timeless memoirs, etched deep in our subconscious, matured and sugar-coated in nostalgia for positive recollection.
