Stephen Marotta has been creating art for as long as he can remember. As a child, he spent countless hours sketching and doodling. Eventually, a passion and intensity for sports began to play a more prominent role in his artwork. While under the guidance and support of his mentor, Edwin Havas, Stephen received a BA degree in Fine Arts and Advertising Art from Seton Hall University in 1991. On the advice of Mr. Havas, he attended Montclair State University and received an MAT degree in 1995. He is currently employed as a Visual Arts Specialist within the Elizabeth, New Jersey School System. His artwork has been displayed in local galleries and other venues throughout the Metropolitan area including the Meadowlands Racetrack, Morris County Courthouse, Georgian Court College, Montclair State University, The Ringwood Manor, and currently the Newark Hilton on Rt. 1 & 9. The incredible photo-realism of his paintings makes one feel as if they are a spectator at the event portrayed! Truly, it is like being at the game!
My name is Amber Montgomery and I am from Savannah, Ga. From an early age, I’ve always loved drawing, doodling, and painting with art sets that included watercolors, pastels, etc. I enjoy creating art because you are free to be creative, express yourself, and connect with others. I graduated in 2010 from Savannah College of Art & Design in Motion Media. While I enjoy creating digital art and teaching film, I love painting because it's messy, hands-on, and I can experiment with colors. My art style is contemporary with abstract influence and I specialize in acrylic paint. My subjects are usually animals and delicious fruits that I have brought to life with bright colors.
