Howard J. Eberle - A self-taught artist, Eberle has been painting in transparent watercolor since 1973.  He started painting professionally in 1990 and has achieved signature status in the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society. Eberle's talent begins by finding interest in what others often overlook--an intriguing window, the texture of peeled paint on an old, dry-docked boat, a dramatic shadow created by the hinge of a shutter or...a basket left on a railing.  His work is available as originals or limited edition giclee or offset prints.

Carolyn Gibboney - Carolyn's love of nature, animals and extensive world travels have provided her with inspiration for her intimate oil paintings. Largely self taught, her style of painting has been influenced by French, Dutch, American, and Russian impressionists.

watercolor paintings are influenced by Thom's
travels and moves throughout the USA and the world.


Deborah Hershey

reverence for the written word.  Deborah incorporates layers of painted
papers, vintage graphics, gold leaf and a sprinkling of Swarovski crystals to give
her own twist to some carefully chosen words of wisdom. 


Paula Lewis
- Paula's compositions present a modern interpretation of the ancient art of copper enameling.  Individual elements are fired up to ten times at 1400 - 1600 degrees Fahrenheit.  Afterwards they are attached to a background that has been thoughtfully designed and finished to enhance the work.


Cathy H. Mabius
- Cathy is a fine artist whose preferred medium is oil which she uses to create paintings that are a blend of impressionism and realism. Her landscapes, still lifes and garden scenes that are full of light, color and "dynamic tranquility"
