Meet some of the artists that share their work. When asked what they do, the following are some of their responses.
Meet Stefani Tadio- Studio 240
I hand stitch colorful mandalas on paper to make framed art, notepads, greeting cards and paper jewelry. I design my pieces using my computerized cutting machine, which not only cuts the paper shapes but cuts the teeny, tiny stitching holes with accuracy and precision. Then, with needle & thread, I hand stitch the designs, one stitch at a time.
Meet Suzi Zefting-Kuhn Studio 452-458
I am a representational artist with my focus mainly on oil and pastel. My favorite subjects to paint are people and animals. I love trying to figure out what makes that person or animal tick. I also have been working on a series called ‘Jazz Hands’ in oil which portray musicians hands and parts of their instruments. It is a fascinating and challenging way to get to know the human hand creating beautiful music.
Meet Susan Carmen-Duffy @ Create Art 4 Good- Studio 201
I truly love blending a multitude of media together in one piece. I feel that each medium has it’s strength and combined provides tremendous opportunity for the artist. As a whimsical artist I love nature and figurative work. Continuing to work on my own art and writing, I also support a gallery called, “Create Art 4 Good”. CA4G supports art and artists and pays it forward by donating a portion of each and every sale to a charity in need.
Meet Lori Prince- Studio 240
My jewelry is all handmade by me. I buy chains and cords and a few other pre finished components to complete my work. I use a lot of different materials- sterling silver, copper, metal clay, polymer clay and resin mostly. My metal pieces are made with traditional techniques like sawing, filing, soldering, hammering and cold forging. Metal clay is formed, dried, finished, then fired in a kiln until it is fully sintered (the small particles of metal in the clay fused together and become solid)
I have worked in the optics industry for 20 years. I tell people that my day job is so “left brained” that I need to balance myself out my doing this creative work.
