A touch of glassJanice Osborne, Glass Artist
www.jannyglass.com

Janice, who lives in La Quinta, started her career in Glass in the late 70’s doing stained glass, windows, doors, lamps chandeliers and even room dividers.  About ten years ago she decided to broaden her glass knowledge using the kiln to fuse and manipulate glass.  Each piece is hand crafted and takes several days to make with multiple firings. Today she is enjoying making her jewelry from glass she designs herself and her standing glass cats, dogs, wind chimes and the “Galaxy of Colors” Wall hangings are all made to decorate your home and hopefully, put a smile on your face.

Toshiko Toko Ousdahl
Oil Paint Acrylic

My approach to painting is enthusiastic yet humble. Through painting I want to convey my feeling .... happiness, peace, strength and passion....and share my sentiment with many people. I am so thankful to be able to concentrate my time on my favorite form of artistic expression...painting.



Debra Sawicky

I was going to conquer the world, but got distracted by something sparkly... My passion for designing jewelry using semi-precious stones emerged after receiving a B.A. in Art and Interior Design. Whether transforming interiors or creating unique designs with colorful beads, textural stones and metals, I am grateful to share my creative expression with the community.






Judith George

I have been creating jewelry for nearly 20 years. My current pieces are eclectic and unusual creations using a variety of off loom beading techniques and bead embroidery. My work includes beads and other natural materials such as semi-precious stones, fossils, fresh water pearls, copper and miscellaneous found objects. My pieces are created intuitively, without patterns and therefore each piece is OOAK. www.etsy.com/shop/judesart

Cheryl Herr

I honor all paths to creativity. My own journey has been woven by an eclectic skein of life threads, now, serendipitously leading me to the studio. I love incorporating stones, fiber, and clay, via weaving, coiling and pottery. I am excited to be a participant at the studio.

Lisa DeFaccio

Each of Lisa DeFaccio’s "Fleurs" is a unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind, numbered, ceramic sculptural form. They are created in a studio set in a bountiful flower garden overlooking the water on an island in Puget Sound. She has been working as a ceramics artist since 1982 when she took her first classes as a requirement for an art degree and fell in love with clay as a medium of expression. Initially, her inspiration for Fleurs came from paintings of flowers and bones by Georgia O’Keefe and the challenge of representing motion and life force through the essentially still, solid medium of clay became an objective in developing the Fleurs series.
