  • Zsuzsanna Pataki - storytelling fine artist.

    Develop your own profile, network, career, and/or business by joining us at The Arts and Culture Network as a full member. It's just £10 per month. Cancel any time. Benefits are here. This profile is just one of them. Meet Zsuzsanna Pataki. Zsuzsanna Pataki is a distinguished fine artist based in Orpington, England, who specialises in creating bespoke art for both individual collectors and corporate spaces. Take a tour around Zsuzsanna's virtual gallery: Her work ranges from striking oil portraits to evocative abstract pieces, showcased in many galleries. Zsuzsanna's multifaceted career not only includes her personal artistic endeavours but also extends to leading art-based team-building sessions, organising exhibitions, and fostering a collaborative artistic community. Mark loved discussing Zsuzsanna's work - her unique perspective for painting on a large scale and how she uses gold and silver in her paintings! It was equally fun creating her fantasy cultural year that pulled out many anecdotes to get to know Zsuzsanna better. Born in Hungary, Zsuzsanna Pataki displayed a passion for art from a young age. She learnt about Art and Visual Education at Varosmajori High School in Budapest, where she laid the foundation for her future in the arts. Her academic journey took a turn towards the humanities when she pursued a degree in Italian at Eötvös Loránd University, driven by her fascination with Renaissance art and culture. This interdisciplinary approach allowed her to combine her love for art with a thorough understanding of art history and Italian literature. Zsuzsanna's pursuit of higher education led her to the United States, where she earned both her Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the University of Minnesota between 1997 and 2004. During this period, she honed her teaching skills as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, instructing Italian language courses and managing the Italian department's syllabuses. This experience enriched her ability to communicate complex ideas and nurtured her talent for guiding others. Despite her initial career path in academia and language instruction, Zsuzsanna's true calling remained in the arts. After a decade-long detour, she embraced her identity as a full-time artist in 2014, moving to South East London. Her diverse background, combining rigorous academic research with creative expression, significantly influences her artistic process. Each of her paintings is approached as a meticulous study, peeling back layers to reveal deeper insights and stories. Zsuzsanna's art is characterised by her love of colours, light, and human connections. Her works often explore the interplay between nature and human environments, capturing moments in vibrant acrylic cityscapes, landscapes, and portraits. Beyond her own creations, she is deeply committed to fostering a supportive and interconnected community of artists. She organises and publicises exhibitions, helping to bridge the gap between hardworking artists and art collectors, and advocates for the value of original artworks in an age of mass-produced reproductions. In addition to her personal art practice, Zsuzsanna leads innovative art-based team-building workshops for professionals. These sessions encourage participants to step out of their comfort zones, engage with creative processes, and build new cognitive pathways. Through these workshops, she aims to demonstrate that failure is a step towards victory and to inspire a fresh appreciation for beauty and creativity in everyday life. Zsuzsanna's work has been exhibited widely across London, with notable solo exhibitions including "Urban Patterns" and "H2O" at Ripley Arts Centre, and group shows at Coolings Garden Centre. She has also been featured at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea and Hampstead. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic in 2020, she continued to reach her audience through her newsletter, maintaining a connection with art enthusiasts and collectors. Zsuzsanna Pataki is a fine artist who brings a unique blend of academic rigor, creative passion, and community spirit to her work. Her journey from Hungary to the United States and finally to the United Kingdom reflects her dedication to exploring and expressing the beauty of the world around her. Through her paintings, workshops, and community initiatives, Zsuzsanna continues to inspire and connect with others, leaving a lasting impact on the art world and beyond.

  • Claire Stadtmueller - Opera singer, voiceover artist, and environmental activist.

    Develop your own profile, network, career, and/or business by joining us at The Arts and Culture Network as a full member. It's just £10 per month. Cancel any time. Benefits are here. This profile is just one of them. Meet Claire Stadtmueller. Claire Stadtmueller is a distinguished soprano, director, singer, and concept creator known for her powerful operatic voice and innovative artistic vision. She seamlessly blends classical opera with contemporary issues, using her talents to address pressing matters such as bodily sovereignty and environmental protection. Creating Claire’s fantasy cultural year and playing The This or That game provided many surprises and it was wonderful having a dive into her work. Claire Stadtmueller's journey into the world of music began with her academic pursuits. She holds degrees from the New England Conservatory and the University of Rhode Island. Her vocal talent was further honed under the tutelage of international basso Dimitri Kavrakos, providing her with a strong foundation for her future career. Her professional breakthrough came with her debut at Carnegie Hall in Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis," where her performance was highly praised by Egon Stadelman of the New Yorker Staats-Zeitung. This success led to further engagements, including performances in Mozart's "Mass in C Minor" and "Requiem" under Maestro David Randolph, where Stadelman noted her timbre and demeanour reminiscent of Elisabeth Schwarzkopf. Claire's career continued to ascend with notable roles such as Tosca in New York's Central Park with the New York Grand Opera under Maestro Vincent La Selva, who subsequently invited her to sing Amelia in Verdi's "Un Ballo in Maschera." Her performances at Carnegie Hall expanded to include Handel's "Israel in Egypt," Mendelssohn's Second Symphony, Bach's "Christmas Oratorio" and "St. Matthew Passion," and Orff's "Carmina Burana." Beyond Carnegie Hall, Claire's talent was showcased with the Richard Tucker Foundation, at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall, and on NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" and WGBH Boston's "Classics in the Morning." She also performed scenes from Bellini's "Norma" at NYC's United Palace. Her versatility as an opera singer is highlighted by her performances in a wide range of roles, including the title role in Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor," Pamina in Mozart's "The Magic Flute," Fiordiligi in "Cosi fan tutte," and Miss Silverpeal in "The Impresario." She has also played Rosario in Granados' "Goyescas," the Mother in Menotti's "Amahl and the Night Visitors," and the Dew Fairy in Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel." Notably, she created the leading role of Persephone in the world premiere of Geoffrey Gibbs' opera "Potnia." As a recitalist, Claire has performed at Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall, New York City's Trinity Church, for the American Wagner Society in Chicago, and on numerous concert series along the East Coast. Her solo CD, "Sweet Peace," a collection of international songs celebrating peace and lamenting the tragedies of war, has been praised by Frederica von Stade and Ned Rorem as "very beautiful," and has been featured on WGBH Boston, WBAI New York, and WHJJ Providence. Since 2020, Claire has been exploring new artistic avenues by creating films that utilise her operatic voice to express her concepts. These films address crucial contemporary issues, merging music with visual art to convey powerful messages. In addition to her artistic endeavours, Claire is deeply committed to advocacy. She co-founded 5G Free RI and serves as the chief citizen lobbyist for the Clean Atmosphere Act, a legislative effort aimed at banning the harmful aerosol spraying of chemicals. As a voice-over artist, Claire brings a wealth of experience, excelling in delivering performances with a classical, neutral American accent, as well as German-accented English and proficient pronunciation in German, Italian, and French. Her sophisticated and versatile vocal skills allow her to navigate complex pharmaceutical names and adjust her inflection, tempo, and pitch to meet directors' specific needs. Claire Stadtmueller's multifaceted career and unwavering dedication to her art and advocacy continue to inspire and resonate with audiences worldwide.
