Dagen is a talented young man. He has produced some beautiful abstract pieces in acrylic, using the media's nature to flow, clot, run, turn, and shine to express whatever your mind can see.
Tabitha is a delightful young woman who is new in her career as an artist but very impressive. She's learning oils, and is doing wonderful work with watercolor and crafting light boxes with shadow and color images. She's inspired by nature, and paints on glass as well as canvas.
Janet started painting and creating with paint, clay and beads in elementary school and continued through college. She proceeded to take art classes on and off while working and raising her two children. She is now blessed to be a full-time artist in acrylics, mosaics, and some play in jewelry and glass. Janet loves teaching and instructing children and adults. Its all about the "experience" that is achieved while creating a painting they love.
Kenn Louie, a master wood worker and boat builder for 40+ years, prefers reclaimed materials, laying nothing to waste. His art is skillful, experienced, and constructed totally by hand. Creating a large, rocking boat for toddlers, or a small business card holder, he gives great attention to detail in all his pieces. "Louie" creates bowls, spoons, forks, ladles, boxes, dominoes, cribbage boards, pipes, jewelry boxes, and walking sticks, all with respect for the materials, and a knowledge that comes with years of experience, and a love for the details. His art will become heritage pieces for your family.
