Susan Kristoferson – Devotion – Dyed Paper Collage

The possibilities for unending creative invention paired with skilled craftsmanship and happenstance intrigue me.

So much so, that I have been studying and working with paste papers since 1990 and with shibori (Japanese tie dye) since 1977. I have elected to work with processes that allow partnership between creative intuition, effective design, process, technique, color and material.  I usually work in collage, by putting pieces...

Elaine Zimmer – A Whimsical Tea Party

    My Cup Of Tea   My potters wheel turns the clay. My hands shape the clay. Each shape is individual. Each tiny teacup is similar to the one before. They go together, yet they are also different, individual, defined. You will choose the red one or the yellow one, or the green one or the blue one…or the rose one?   Tiny children’s tea sets appeal to the little girl in me. (boys are not allowed…they break things) I am delighted, for a moment, disarmed of all my grown-upness. My inner child shines...

Jim Harkness – Cardinal

Jim began carving in 1975, his artwork is characterized by a strong graphic simplicity. Jim’s white pine or basswood carvings are rough cut on a band saw, then shaped by hand with files. The wood, the choices of its kind,provides a pale canvas to which mostly oils and enamels are applied, before it is washed and varnished – all by hand. Jim’s signature style – a composite of abstract line, lack of carving or painting detail, and vivid colours – has been inspired by the finest of late 19th century and early  20th c

Central to my painting practice is the visual experience. It is upon the visual experience, as a painter, that I have engaged in a personal dialogue. My experiences of the world, especially the visual experiences, provide me with inspiration for painting. I have long been fascinated by nature’s display of light, color, shape and texture. The sky, water and land often intrigue me with its display...
