Here are the bios of the judges
"If you paint what you love, people will love what you paint." I believe that the inclusion of animals in our homes serves to enhance our humanity and allows us to appreciate the beauty of the world around us. For my entire life, I have been surrounded by a menagerie: Cats, dogs, hedgehogs, rabbits, birds, mice and fish have all at one time or another inhabited my heart and my home. I have found that using my love of animals with my love of painting makes for a winning combination. With each animal I paint, I attempt to bring that animal's personality through the painting to the viewer. My greatest success is seeing a smile flash across someone's face when they look at my paintings.
I live in Andover, MA with my husband, three sons, two Italian Greyhounds, a variety of foster bunnies, and Stuart the Wondercat. For years I had been a successful fiber artist, creating and teaching, knitting, spinning, felting, and quilting. Nothing quieted an insistent muse until I accepted a challenge by my oldest son and discovered painting.
Nella works with intuition and experience and never following a formula, she brings together the alchemy of materials, classical forms and the appearance of centuries of aging in all of her paintings, whether it is an abstract, a fresco, a floral, a figurative or even her mixed media on paper.
She works in series and mainly with oils and uses cold wax as a medium often adding marble dust and pumice to create more texture and depth.
Nella is very active in the art communities and an avid volunteer of many organizations. She served for two terms as the President of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Women Artists, NYC.
She is a board member of the Rockport Art Association and Museum and the founder of the Experimental Group of RAA. The mission of the group is to foster, promote and encourage self expression by giving the opportunity to artists to come together, to explore and share ideas towards the creative freedom.
