Engaging with Aloria Weaver and David Heskin is a sublime experience. Not only is their art of such excellence and grandeur as to inspire the creative spark in anyone, but their knowledge of the chemical breakdowns, solutions, and processes involved in the creation of the actual materials is extensive. The depth to which these two artists integrate themselves with their art becomes a spiritual experience.  We are excited that these two winners of our Best in Fine Arts Competitions have elevated themselves to sponsors of Tattoo Masquerade®.


Aloria and David have each been oil painting for over 20 years. They continue to develop their artistic studies in three distinct art lineages which are synthesized into their original compositions and instruction:

-Traditional Egg Tempera Icon Painting
-Classical Atelier Drawing
-Mischtechnik (Egg Tempera & Oil)

Essential to their creative process and classroom instruction are their own handmade oils and mediums, which trace their roots back to the old masters and cannot be found in art supply stores.

Class offerings consist of seasonal intensives at Luminous Flux Gallery + Studios in Loveland, Colorado as well as annual east coast, west coast and international courses. From 2013-2016, Aloria and David were trimester instructors at the Vienna Academy of Visionary Art in Austria, including the summer 2015 Visions in the Mischtechnik Seminar in Italy.

Over the years, hundreds of students have learned from their dynamic teaching style. In the presence of their art and personal instruction, it is common for people to experience a creative catharsis wherein profound realizations arise spontaneously.
