“The essence of what inspires me to paint is generated by the colors in the seasonal landscape. Nature’s palette offers a range of wild intensity to subdued tranquility. I listen to and notice the environment and my immediate surroundings, finding inspiration in every day life. I have studied Buddhism, Japanese haiku masters, appreciate the Native American love of the earth, and with a similar understanding hope my paintings will be valued for their simplicity and openness.”~Robin Samiljan

“The name Destiny Photographic Art also stands for destinations, because our photography revolves around destinations that we have traveled to, including our own city of Chicago, The Morton Arboretum and The Chicago Botanic Garden. Other photographed locations are Italy, Ireland, France, Quebec, Maui, Oregon, St. Maartin, San Francisco, Michigan, Wisconsin, Utah, Nevada and Florida. Whether it be capturing images of waves crashing in the endless ocean, spectacular city skylines, ruins of Italy, cafe’s in Paris, towering waterfalls, or a maze of lily pads, the possibilities are endless, and it’s truly something we enjoy doing together.”~Desitiny Photographic Art
“Rudy and his wife Helen, share a passion for the American West in their “photo safari’s” across the country to experience, observe, and document the culture and lifestyle in these beautiful photographic stories. When they’re not traveling the West or exhibiting at many of the fine art festivals around the country, Rudy is in the studio working on his latest images, printing, framing or maybe planning the next “wild west” road trip in search of Americana and Cowboy heroes from yesterday and today.”~ Rudolph De Ram
“The Love of Art was always there, perhaps dormant. After a career in business, opportunities presented in the form of a wonderfully talented Art Teacher, Lisa Vachta, and the nexus of available time and fascinating places to explore. Earlier works were in watercolor and oil which opened my eyes to the colors and natural movement and shapes in nature. About four years ago, I transformed from the representational style and found the joy of creativity my own free style using vivid colors and creating bolder energy on canvas. It is not meant to shock you as much as inviting you to enjoy a unique view of familiar places. The current series of Chicago paintings reflects the iconic architectural, cultural, and sporting venues. The difference is you are allowed to see them not as they appear in a photo but rather as they would appear in a dream sequence of your fondest memories. The skies are brighter, the buildings are taller, the crowds are louder. Enjoy exploring some of your favorite sites remembering the good times with optimism for many more beautiful days to come.”~Patricia Mayer
