SOAR Welcomes Kj Cumberbatch!

Revolution II, acrylic painting of a wave by Kj Cumberbatch

Revolution II, by Kj Cumberbatch

The Southern Oregon Artists Resource is excited to introduce artist Kj Cumberbatch of Medford to the Visual Artists directory!

Kj Cumberbatch

Born in 1975, Kj Cumberbatch has been painting for over 25 years, selling many paintings and commissions in the process. However, Cumberbatch’s current exhibition of large acrylic paintings at GoodBean Coffee in Jacksonville is the first public display of his art. Subjects in his current works center around animals and the natural world. Each painting is very impressive both in style and size…the smallest is 36″ x 36″. While we love them all, our favorite is the (roughly) 79″ x 46″ [R]evolution II, painted in 2016-2017. These large-format works are perfect for hanging in large spaces, whether a home, business or nonprofit, or public space. If you’re in the market for such works, catch his show before it ends on February 28,

"Piano Dancer", pen and watercolor painting by Jeanne Azzopardi

The Jazz Series of watercolor paintings and drawings came to life following chemotherapy, 9 surgeries, the death of 3 loved ones within a 2 month period, and the end of a four year relationship due to the resulting depression. Although Jeannie holds 2 BS degrees, an MS and MDE, “Education and intelligence is, unfortunately, not a talisman against grief and despair.”

“Just Sayin’…” Drawings 11 and 12

    I continue to work on my “Just Sayin’…” series.  When working from memory and imagination, I’m never certain what the results will be.  I start with an idea and go to work.  I push, pull, smudge, lift, re-draw…sigh, put it away, and bring it out to draw some more.   Eventually the image emerges.  […]
