Acrylic

 

James Eli Bowden

Acrylic on PVC

My paintings represent themselves, rather than being representational. Forms are subconsciously assimilated from the world of things and sometimes an earlier painting. These sources are intuitively assimilated with concern to develop a visual space with tension between the shapes and the colors.

Christina Cooley

Acrylic, Mixed Media, Alcohol Ink, Crochet

For me, painting is an exploratory and intuitive process. I work in many layers of paint, adding, playing, and adjusting until the piece is complete. The result is a colorful, evocative abstraction.

Gloria Payne ( GloriaPArtist )

Acrylics

My inspiration for painting comes from the beauty of this earth. Acrylic paints help me to explore different ways of being creative. It's thrilling to see a thought form in my mind and be born on canvas, or take a life of its own.

Muriel Reymond

Acrylic

I have always loved to paint with acrylic, though my main means of expression is music. I discovered Acrylic pouring a few years ago and fell in love with it. I love that I don't necessarily know the outcome of a painting, an idea of painting...it is a lot like improvisation in music. People get to see what they want, I love abstract. Now, it is also a way of meditating in silence but with colors.

Ceramics

 

Judi D'Andrea

Ceramics and Fused Glass

The art of manipulating clay with my hands has been fascinating and has kept me interested and inspired for well over forty years. I began adding glass to clay and was introduced to the art of glass fusing, which is layering colored glass and firing it in a kiln. I also love to teach anyone who wants to learn these techniques in my home studio.

Jewelry

 

Cheryl & Son Jewelry Designs
Handcrafted Sterling Silver and Copper Jewelry

Jewelry

As an avid collector of vintage and contemporary jewelry, I found it difficult to find something that was unique enough to add to my collection. Consequently, I became a jewelry artist to create what I could not find in the marketplace.

My designs are contemporary and often edgy, yet often you can see an old-world aesthetic in them that comes from my love of antique jewelry. My creations are designed to appear visibly handcrafted and are meant to be worn every day for any occasion.

All of my artwork is inspired by a love of nature and organic forms which has long been the center of my art work. I focus beyond a visual description and allow myself to explore elements related to defining the subject. A passion for drawing, collage, printmaking and mixed media construction lies in the endless variety of techniques available to manipulate materials and express ideas. Varied subjects may be handled with traditional techniques and alternative approaches.
