Bill & I have known Sidney for several years and it is always a true blessing to do a show with him. Sidney is an amazing painter and an incredible man. Always looking at the bright side of any situation, I just love this guy and you will too. Sidney is currently in the Atlanta GA area but does lots of traveling to some great shows. You can see more of his work on his website at sidneycarter.net or his facebook page here. When you see him, give him a hug for us .
We met Andy, his wife Ana & son Benny at the Orchard Lake Fine Art Show in Michigan. Andy is a photographer and he has an incredible eye. I love how his pieces are framed in antique window frames. It adds so much to the feel of the piece. They do alot of traveling and it is conveyed in his work. Andy and his wife are so light hearted and kind. We really enjoyed spending time with this lovely family. You must take a look at his amazing work and see how it fits into your home. Take a look at his website Here.
How we met Stephon & Yvonne Miller.... We pulled into the overnight parking lot at the show and we saw several folks outside.... knowing they were also camping artists, we crashed their party... We really enjoyed spending our evenings with them after the show. And as fate would have it, they were right accross from us in the show. So it was just meant to be. What a lovely couple. Check out their amazing mixed media pieces HERE. They have some cool, light hearted peices. I love this particular one they create that says "Be a fountain, not a drain". Clever! See you guys soon
You are gonna love this guy. Truly a one of a kind! Boris Kramer was the artist accross from us at the Orchard Lake Fine Art Show in Michigan. Boris made the show so much fun for us. He has a great personality and sense of humor. You are also sure to love his work. He creates metal sculptures, most of his work is figurative and fluid. I was so excited to add his work to my own personal collection. He has an eye for perfection and his work absolutely conveys this. You must check him out.. CLICK HERE
At the Berkshire Arts Festival in Great Barrington, I had the pleasure of being between 2 amazing artists. One of those artists was on my bucket list to meet and I was lucky enough to be placed right beside him. In this photo you will see my wonderful husband booth sitting for Bob, enjoying one of his works of art. Bob Brown creates these amazing wooden pieces. His business name says it all "Treemendous Designs". Check him out and tell him I said hello.
I was blown away by the beautiful works of Joey Koldare. I was lucky enough to have been placed beside her at the Berkshire Arts Festival in Great Barrington Mass. Joey and I were both messmerized by how much our work complemented one another. As you can see in the photo above, this beautiful bar pendant necklace by Koldare Designs goes wonderfully with one of my ombre scarves. It was great to meet you Joey.
I met Mike Church at a Craftsmen Classic show several years ago. Mike has an incredible eye for wood and turns some pretty unique pieces. The image above is a pepper grinder that I purchased for my home. You can find Mike at many shows on the east coast and on the web at MCWoodturnings.com. Be sure to look Mike up and check out his incredible collection of work.
A few years ago, I was doing a show in Arlington Va and during a walk through the show I saw the most amazing artwork. Bonnie Shanas creates figurative sculptures from window screen. She shapes the screen by hand to create these incredibly beautiful wall hangings. You must see it in person to truly appreciate her talent. I occasionally get the opportunity to hang with Bonny and she is an amazing artist, wife, mother and friend.
