Featured Artists

Heather Anders

An artist since the age of 5, Heather Anders sees the world through her art. Her choices of vibrant colors and whimsical images are always peaceful, dreamy, bright and brilliantly cheerful, human characteristics which are dear to her heart and this is what she shares.

Creating from her imagination, Heather’s designs employ Hawaiian earth tones painted in acrylic and India inks. She incorporates tribal tattoo motifs, creative Polynesian Tapa designs, draped around hand drawn petroglyphs and Hawaiian honu. The finished works represent collective memories of Hawaiian life and experiences, mementos to be shared by all. This is Heather’s way of perpetuating the spirit of Aloha.

“I find joy in bringing together vibrant tropical colors and traditional Hawaiian motifs to create a dreamy island style.”
—Heather Anders, Artist

Erwin Dazelle

Erwin Dazelle, is a 3rd generation master glass painter and internationally renowned artist from the Basque region in the South-West of France, he has been following in his family’s footsteps and has been honing his skills ever since creating his first piece in his father’s studio at the tender age of five. Since then, he has cultivated his signature “Naïve figurative with Classic traditional and graphic illustrative compositions” which are based on his roots in stained glass compositions and techniques, which help reveal and accentuate the lines in his works creating a personal and bold harmony of colors in all of his pieces.

Since selling his first canvas in 1997 his unique style has proved overwhelmingly successful, resulting in creating commissioned art for over 22 years for such distinguished corporate clients as, Hyatt Hotels, Relais & Châteaux, The Radisson Group, Cannes Hotel de Paris and the Palace Hotel in Monte Carlo, to name a few.

Erwin specializes in Painting, Sculpting, and Sketching.  His most popular medium is oil on canvas but he has created numerous bigger-than-life murals over the years along with unique “graffiti” style pieces and ultimately where it all started, glass painting.

It is hard to classify styles and themes but we created 3 galleries that help break down his work.  Motor and action sports, city and cultural, and “Vin”, which pays homage to the rich history of producing wine.

Erwin has attained global notoriety for his signature “Vin” series of paintings which have been exhibited and sold to clients around the world and draw heavily on his affinity and proximity to the vineyards in France. His “Vin” paintings can be found at wineries in Jurançon, Bordeaux, Champagne, Navarra, Tuscany, Switzerland, and California.

One of Christian’s main goals is to inspire other artists and hobbyists to take their artwork to the next level. What started out as a dream is now becoming a reality with Blackbird Gallery and Art Studio located in downtown Jersey City.

Thomas Stiltz

After a successful career in professional photography and graphic design, Thomas Stiltz began painting full time 25 years ago. He developed his style of realism through an exacting manipulation of materials, a photographic visual language, and the use of old world techniques, applying many layers of glazed oil paint. Using these methods, he imparts intensity, depth, rich color and light effects. He views his paintings as optimistic art, creating and inventing wonderful visions that express the shared pleasures of sight, taste, sound, smell and touch.

Thomas Stiltz received his Bachelor of Arts in painting and Master of Arts in photography and design from the University of Delaware. One painter to influence Stiltz is Cézanne, whose still-life’s show devotion to the solidity of objects and form revealed through color. Stiltz’s paintings also reflect the inspiration gained from his studies of the works of Jan Vermeer. It is apparent from Stiltz’s work that he is impressed with Vermeer’s depiction of the interaction of light and objects, his emphasis on detail, and the effect of diffused light on backgrounds and shadows.

The paintings of Thomas Stiltz are created with a devotion to old-world techniques, often using many layers to build up the paint surface. Backgrounds are glazed with many layers of color for depth and richness, and objects are rendered with a strong emphasis on naturalism.

As a graduate student traveling through Paris in 1972, Thomas Stiltz developed his taste for fine wine. Experiencing French cuisine enhanced by just the right wine led to a life-long interest in the world’s best wines. Stiltz’s unique contribution to art is his ability to transfer the entire experience of wine from one palette to another.

Exhibited by some 50 galleries worldwide in the United States, Canada, and China, Stiltz has developed an international reputation among collectors around the world. He has been commissioned to produce works for many wineries and private patrons. His studio and home are located in Maryland where he lives with his wife Sheri; together they have raised daughters Jennifer and Julie.
