Each month, we feature some of our artists up at the front of the gallery. Usually 3 to 4 artists are featured for the month as well as Artwalk. These artists bring in new work at this time.

   Pam is a very eclectic artist. She has been creating art since highschool. It all started sewing and went on from there.
   Handsculpted dolls got her into her first gallery, which she still belongs to. Polymer clay is her medium of choice. it gives her free reign over her creations.
   Pam has brought back her mixed media paintings. She has been painting up a storm in the last few weeks.
   She doesn't see herself as an artist, but an artisan. "I use  every craft  and fine art trick in the book to get results" she says. Being  a MAKER is what she is.
   Jewelry has been a passion for at last 20 years. She creates mini sculptures for the wearer. She makes everything form the focal bead to the closure.

Susan Norman


   Wildlife is my favorite subject, and I believe that animals are individuals with their own characters and emotions. I often use whimsy and humor to help make my subjects more approachable, as my goal is to uplift viewers and inspire them to not just admire the beauty of my subjects but to empathize with them.
   My painting style shows Naive and Folk Art influences. Backgrounds tend to be impressionistic and the lighting indirect, in order to focus on deliberately stylized subjects. This helps provide a “dreamlike” aura and allows me to anthropomorphize an animal to better portray its spirit.
   Oil painting is my primary medium, and I am proud to use a safe and environmentally friendly solvent-free process. Pigments are mixed with pure oils and beeswax, walnut and poppy oil are used for glazing, and natural soap for cleanup. I do not use traditional solvents such as turpentine, petroleum-based compounds, or toxic chemical additives in my work.
