Yuki Hall is an award-winning watercolor artist known for her loose style and impressionistic approach to working with the medium.    She emphasizes simplicity, effective use of tonal value patterns, fluidity, and execution of confident brush strokes. 


After leaving her career as a mechanical engineer in 2006, Yuki started her journey with watercolor painting at a local art center.  She then further studied the medium with nationally and internationally acclaimed artists such as David Taylor, Eric Wiegardt, and Alvaro Castagnet.


Yuki holds a signature membership to the Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Ohio Watercolor Society, and Whiskey Painters of America.  Her work has been accepted into prestigious national & international level watercolor juried competitions including the National Watercolor Society Annual Member’s Exhibition, 2018, the National Juried Exhibition of Transparent Watercolor Society of America, 2014, 2017 & 2019, and the Watercolor West International Juried Exhibition in 2014, where she won the Founders Award. 


Her works also have been featured in highly competitive national art/watercolor publications: Watercolor Artist Magazine, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2020 & 2021; and The Best of Watercolor “Splash 14”, “Splash 20”, Splash 21” & “Splash 22”, 2015 ~ 2021 by North Light Books and Golden Peak Media Fine Art Group.


Yuki is also an avid teacher. She teaches watercolor painting workshops both nationally and internationally.  She lives in Beavercreek, OH with her husband and two daughters.

Coming Soon: Ted Lawson, Contemporary Watercolor Artist

Ted started his art career in high school in Phoenix, Arizona.  Even though Ted was good in high school art he chose engineering school over art school.  Through his career in engineering converting crude oil into gasoline and jet fuel he studied with nationally known watercolor instructors Gerald Brommer, Tony Couch and Fred Graff as well as with his mentor, Bette Elliott.

Ted creates art using “the things that people see and use every day” as his inspiration. His ideas involving common everyday scenes or objects spring from his extensive foreign and domestic travels as well as glimpses of New York City. Ted continuously strives to accomplish the goal of creating something that is entertaining and thought-provoking for other people to look at and enjoy.


Born in Terre Haute, Indiana, Ted resides in Canton, Ohio with his wife Patricia, a former high school Spanish teacher.  Their one daughter, Emily is a theatre attorney.  She and her husband Guy work in the Broadway production niche in Manhattan.   Ted is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Ohio Watercolor Society and the Akron Society of Artists.


A friend once remarked to Ted about his two disparate careers, one in art the other in engineering by asking how an engineer became a watercolor artist.  Ted replied, “Consider Leonardo DaVinci”.
