Crayons and clay collection. It amazes me how things can come full circle in one's life. In 5th grade I won top award for a picture I made using drops of melted crayons to portray a large sunflower. It was on display in an art show in Madison Wisconsin. I never forgot about that award over the years, so I started playing around with crayons and came up with a three-dimensional art using melted crayon as background, polymer clay for the scene then an acrylic cover overlay. The lesson I'm learning is, it is never too late to play with crayons, or, be creative and find new uses for old things.
I have been a watercolor artist for over thirty years. While studying at the Ohio State University to become a nurse, I took several fine arts classes. Since then I have studied watercolor with many well-known artists. My paintings have appeared in several exhibitions in Central Ohio, and I have received awards in several shows. One of my paintings is permanently on display in the lobby of The Ohio State University College of Nursing. I like using watercolors with a lot of pigment saturation in order to create intense, vibrant colors and depth. The inspiration behind the majority of my work comes from scenes from my travels. I strive to make my work a representation of nature and the beauty of color. My style is realism, however on occasion: I have painted in a more impressionistic style, emphasizing color over detail. For more information, including size and price of each piece, I can be reached at email@example.com.
Sherry earned a BFA in art from Kent State University, and taught high school art prior to earning a Ph.D. in Education administration at the University of Virginia. After returning to Ohio to work in community education, she opened a studio and resumed painting, while taking classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design. Her award-winning work has been included in numerous local, regional, and state, juried and curated art shows. Sherry's current work is focused on the landscape as dynamic and changing, not static and stable. Changes can be monumental, inescapable, and command our attention, as in a natural or human-made catastrophe; or, can occur slowly, quietly, and go unnoticed by us, like the disappearance of an animal or plant species. The only certainty is that our physical landscape never is the same from one moment to the next. For more information, or to arrange a studio visit, contact Sherry at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Vivian is an accomplished artist of quite varied subject matter; but inherent in all her works is the beauty of color and how it is affected by light and shade. She works in pastel, watercolor, acrylic, and colored pencil--always striving to achieve beauty in each medium through her emotional use of color and tone. Vivian has been professionally active in group and individual shows since 1975. She regularly teaches pastel, portraiture, colored pencil, and is also in demand for demonstrations and workshops in these disciplines as well as in watercolor. Of particular interest is painting on location. The excitement and involvement with the moment is particularly rewarding. "The whole body, and its senses, is involved with nature because of the urgency to depict an increasingly changing scene," says Vivian. Contact the Artist, Vivian Ripley, at 614-451-6254 for prices.

I started painting in retirement. I paint with oil or colored pencil and draw with ink, Copic markers, and graphite. For my images of people, I’m most interested in capturing them when they are busy with their own thoughts or activities and not posing. The horticultural images are from my garden. I produce new colored-pencil pieces annually for the American Hosta Society and its local chapters and create hosta coloring pages for their members. I’ve won awards from Bryn Du and Worthington Area Art League and have been invited to participate in several shows at the McConnell Art Center.

Art is my visual language. My focus is on the beauty of the world around us. There is so much beauty in almost anything, in a wild flower, in old trees, in a lake's reflection in light, or in an old man's face, all waiting to be delineated. I choose subjects that are a little bit mysterious, that invoke curiosity, or give peace and serenity. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
