Anne Jackson Anne Jackson
My name is Anne Jackson and I am a mixed media artist. I work with a broad range of materials such as stained glass, shells, stone, tile, metal, and anything else which inspires me. Working with mixed media can be technically challenging, but I find that the challenges foster a great deal of creativity and become a source of inspiration for me as I complete each piece.

My work is rooted in the nature and the landscapes of my hometown of San Diego. Each piece is an expression of my own passions and joy, and I hope that you, by viewing my work, can feel and experience the same emotions I felt while I was creating it.

Bill Riley


Brought to San Diego by the U.S. Navy, Bill has been at the coast ever since. Living happily in Ocean Beach, CA, the beach lifestyle is a primary influence in Bill’s series of surf sculpture: iconic surfers on period boards, as well as Tiki art. In addition, he has experimented with various sculptural forms, human, feline, and architectural, in often daring applications. He creates busts, torsos, and bas-reliefs as well as planters in many exciting shapes and finishes. He is available for custom commissions and can hand build from photographs, live models, and sketches that can then be executed in ceramic or wood.

In addition to creating art for art’s sake, I also incorporate my creativity and fine craftsmanship into the home repair and restoration business I share with my wife and partner Candy.  Building custom garden furniture, gates, and arbors, I am a versatile artist/craftsman and love a challenge!  

My artwork is currently on display at the Surfindian Gallery in Pacific Beach, CA, the California Surf Museum in Oceanside, CA, Chicweed Gallery on South Cedros in Solana Beach, and in private and international collections.

    I was introduced to Intaglio Print/Etching by my sister, who was an art student at Chico State.  All it took was one try and I was delighted to see nature’s perfection imprinted on paper.  From then on, I was addicted and inspired by natural landscape and still life settings.  I have been printing now for over 12 years and enjoy it more than ever.  Other mediums that I explore are fine silver jewelry making, watercolor and drawing.

    I have had the pleasure of taking first place award at the Del Mar Fair Fine Art Exhibit and special award from San Diego County Printmakers Association.  It has been a great and fortunate experience to share an exhibit many times with such creative and talented artists. 

Donna Napolitan Donna Napolitan
Born and raised in Pennsylvania, I was influenced at a young age by my grandfather who taught me how to use tools and inspired me to see the possibilities an every scrap heap! Creativity has played an important role in my life and led me to San Diego in 1981, where I earned a degree in Theatre Arts from SDSU. Largely self-taught, I pursued my passion for pottery which eventually led to my interest in mosaic work. I am thrilled to have found a way to incorporate my love of re-purposed objects into my pottery and mosaic creations. Inspired by the colors and textures found in nature, I do both indoor and outdoor (garden) mosaics and pottery. A perfectionist at heart, working with clay and glass has taught me to embrace the Japanese aesthetic of “Wabi-sabi,” in my work, learning to see the beauty of things imperfect.

Donna K. Pikus Donna K. Pikus
Donna Kay is passionate about her subject matter, fish. Her juicy wet, vividly pigmented acrylics of Koi fish look as if they're about to swim off the canvas. Donna is a master Gyotaku painter who has been invited to teach workshops on this Oriental technique in the San Diego area. These paintings have an antique quality. Think of fossils in stone but full of lively color.
Donna was one of the founders of the Point Loma Artists and remains very active in the many activities of the group. She leads and organizes group shows in alternative spaces around San Diego where she and the group sell many fine art pieces.

Jean Silva Jean Silva
After retiring from a 30-year career as a graphics artist with the Federal Government, I am enjoying being a mixed media artist, experimenting with new materials and techniques.  Nature is very important to me since so much of my inspiration and energy comes from it. I try to spend as much time as I can painting in Idyllwild, an artists’ community located in the San Jacinto mountains and also at Lake Almanor, a mountain retreat in northern California. My style is representational, painting landscapes and the figure. After taking an exciting mixed media collage workshop from the Southern artist Carrie Burns Brown, I now am discovering the excitement of new combinations of materials, continuing with nature themes but gravitating also to the abstract and nonrepresentational. I am active with the San Diego Watercolor Society, the Point Loma Artists and several artists’ crtique groups.

As a Point Loma native, I am pleased to be part of the Point Loma Artists Association!

Art has always been a big part of my life. I have an art degree from SDSU and have worked for a leading edge international textile company for over 30 years.

Currently, most of my paintings are landscapes, although I have painted other subjects and abstract compositions. The mediums I enjoy working in are acrylic on canvas and watercolor on paper. My work is frequently selected for SDWS shows and I have been accepted to Spanish Village.


Julie Anderson Julie Anderson
I am a shape painter who loves color but requires value - my adventure with watercolor has led me to this realization.  Unlike the subject matter shift from landscapes/cityscapes  and florals in my early work to figures in my recent creations, this basic way I perceive painting will not change.

The reason for my current interest in figures is twofold.  First, I enjoy the interesting shapes, both positive and negative, that are present in the body language of single and multiple figures.  But most importantly, I am fascinated by the stories of everyday people doing everyday things – things with which I can identify.  I paint what I know – places I’ve been, things I’ve done, emotions I’ve experienced, etc.  I work in my studio from photos I have taken.  My wish is that viewers can make connections and complete the stories being introduced in my paintings.

But a good story needs a good presentation.  It needs great design.  To get great design there need to be interesting shapes and good movement of both dark and light passages through the composition.  I attempt to do this in each painting.

Artist in Oils


Art is a passion.  I grew up surrounded by drawings and paintings.  In our family of art lovers, everyone painted.  I found true love in oil painting.

 After layering darks and mediums, the paintings find their light.  Details emerge.  Colors blend.  A painting builds.  Brushstrokes finish.  Oil painting.

 I paint scenes of places that I love, portraits from old photographs, and memories from family.   I want my paintings to make you can remember a special day, or pretty porcelain knickknacks that adorned a grandmother’s mantel, the path by the bay or an old cedar chest of linens.  These are the images I cherish and paint to remember them today.

Roberta Dyer Roberta Dyer
Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Roberta attended Vanderbilt University, graduating in 1968 with a degree in Art History. She returned to Atlanta where she worked in the financial industry, but spent her spare time studying art at the Atlanta Art Institute and Georgia State University.

Moving to San Diego in 1971, she continued her part-time study of art, taking advantage of the wonderful opportunities offered by the public school’s continuing education program. She married Eddie Dyer in 1973 and they have lived in Point Loma since 1976.

Art remained one of Roberta’s main interests while she raised her children and volunteered with their schools and the San Diego Museum of Art. She was chairman of the committee at the Museum that installed the very first hands-on exhibit for children, the “Cowboy”, and the first “Art Cart” for the instruction of children in the galleries of the Museum.

Almost a decade ago, Roberta’s art career took a more serious turn when she began working with a local interior designer, painting murals in residential spaces. That endeavor has evolved into commissioned art as well as murals and painted furniture

Traditionally working in oils and acrylics, she has recently turned to the very challenging medium of watercolor. Roberta joined the San Diego Watercolor Society a year ago, and in that time has been awarded a Juror’s Commendation as well as a “Best of Miniatures” in their monthly shows. She is serving as President of the SD Water Color Society in 2010.  

Roberta loves the challenge of creating art, and believes that art should improve one’s space and create a moment of pleasure.

Roberta’s art may currently be viewed at the San Diego Watercolor Society, Belle Maison Seacoast Interiors in Ocean Beach, Tender Greens Restaurant and Pacific View Real Estate.

As a lifelong San Diegan, there was always a time for sketching and seeing form in my surroundings. 

After retiring from a career in Cosmetic Dentistry I began a renewal of a passion in painting Oil landscapes and nature throughout family travels in America, meeting noted artists and acquiring their works. These artists have been a major influence in my artistic journey.  In recent years the freedom and discovery of watercolor completes and artistic need with occasional classes and additional workshops through the San Diego Watercolor Society. 

My paintings have awards from the San Diego County Fair and are in both private and continuing Exhibits.
