Marlene Cowell works with acrylics on canvas, builds her own gallery wrapped stretchers and paints completely around the edges of each piece. A country girl at heart, Marlene’s paintings reflect her love of nature.

Cathy Sutton has been making jewelery for about 3 years. She started off making necklaces & bracelets to incorporate her own lamp-worked glass beads. Now she is metalsmithing with gold, copper and silver and working with semi-precious stones as well as lamp-worked glass. This latest leaf series incorporates a technique called repoussé as defined by Wikipedia as "a metalworking technique in which a malleable metal is ornamented or shaped by hammering from the reverse side."
Repoussé Leaf on Fused Copper Pendant by Cathy SuttonTara Tuchscherer's passion for the last ten years has been hand-built pottery. Surrounded by the inspiration of the Canadian prairie she tries to incorporate its beauty in each ceramic piece with the use of handmade stamps, found objects and collected weeds, grasses, leaves, and flowers from the prairies. The texture of each decorative piece is further enhanced with a variety of glazes and stains creating a truly unique piece of art. Tara's most resent series of ceramic owls are an absolute HOOT!
