Jennifer Duncan – Mixed Media Painter

I am a mixed media painter. My work is driven by a desire to create interesting colorful surfaces, that are inspired by aspects of nature. I grew up surrounded by native plants, animals and rural spaces, and find bits and pieces of these images in my paintings. Recently I have been using aspects of nature to create geometric abstractions by painting, cutting, then reconnecting pieces of acrylic and polymer on paper. I am excited to be participating in Three Days with the Artists this year and hope to see you there!

Trish Hamill- Fiber Art

I have been a fiber artist for many years. Originally a weaver of scarves and wraps, I wanted to try my hand at creating images out of fiber and worked in rug hooking and tapestry weaving. At this time, I’ve found that a combination of wet and needle felting is the most enjoyable method for making my folk-art and primitives-inspired wall hangings and ornaments. Most felted wool used for wearable and functional art is much like regular fabric–able to be cut and sewn easily. For wall hangings or decorative pieces, I like to leave...

Bill Hardy – Wood Turner

Posted by on Nov 11, 2014 in 3 Days with the Artists, uncategorized | Comments Off

This year I will again have a wide variety of items in a broad price range that will make great gifts. All pieces are hand turned of exotic and native hardwoods as well as many ‘colorwood’ items which have been very popular this year. Most of my bowls are turned from Dogwood, a wood that is rare to find in the marketplace. Two specialties of mine are fiber artist tools, such as crochet hooks, drop spindles, needle cases and seam rippers; and pens — ball points, rollerballs and fountain pens.
