Kate Batkiewicz


I love nature, and I try to capture its essence and beauty through my paintings. I especially love seascapes.

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.


Julie Fletcher


I paint solely with acrylic paints. I’m inspired by nature, places I’ve been, and photographs. My painting style is developing. Some abstract and some quasi-realistic paintings.

Muriel Reymond


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 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.

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.

Cheryl & Son Jewelry Designs
Handcrafted Sterling Silver and Copper 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.
