I am a self taught artist who believes that art  has to be created from  the soul and speak to the soul. I am an impressionist and expressionist   who loves to create happy vibrant positive paintings on canvas via  acrylics and/or mixed media.i believe that out of the box is always  within reach.

Janet Felton

As a former graphic designer my interest in the arts in not only 2D. I love to draw as well as work in ceramics. The forms I create in porcelain are functional and refined. I also have created a whimsical population of porcelain polar bears in order to call attention to the plight of their loss of habitat. My drawings are my attempt to capture the personality/essence of the animal or subject.

Marilyn Hansen

I received my degree in Fine Arts and have studied art, both in the U.S. and abroad.  I work in pastel, watercolor, acrylic and colored pencil, with pastel as my favorite medium.  As a dancer and equestrian, my artwork is inspired by my love of ballet, horses, music and nature.  I also enjoys doing pet portraits.  I feel I can get into the soul of the animal I paint, and bring so much joy to the owner.  Being able to paint a variety of subjects is what truly motivates me.  I am a member of the Pastel Society of America.
