Brian Billow’s artistic style is described as organic contemporary. He uses acrylic paints, plaster, acid oxidized paints, metal leaf and a molten metals process that he developed to create works that range from landscapes and representational to abstract. The use of acid washed metallic paints creates the timelessness of rust and patina, but used in these designs and in conjunction with the molten metals they reflect the contemporary feel of the modern world. www.bbmsart.com

Paula relies on the innate brilliance and natural elegance of responsibly sourced metals, stones, and gems as the backbones of every handcrafted collection for her modern hand-crafted jewelry designs.
"I emphasize natural surrealism in both my stone sculpture and photography while engaging the emotions evoked by the natural realm. When working in stone, I use direct techniques in native marble, basalt, and limestone. Stone sculpture allows me to explore the substance I see with natural conceptual interpretation in a timeless medium. My pictures emerge through imagination and experience with the interaction between light and subject supported by a keen interest in natural history."
From his solar-powered studio, nestled among tall pines and massive granite formations in a tranquil valley of the Colorado Rockies, artist Lane Dukart draws his inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds him.
Utilizing stoneware clay, each piece is individually cast and hand-carved with original designs, reflecting the environment and culture of the Mountainous Southwest. Lane applies only natural oxides to accentuate the clay’s inherent earthy tones and textures. The durable stoneware clay is then fired to over 2,000 degrees (F), making it impervious to the elements of nature and able to withstand rain, snow and wind.
Each finished composition, signed by the artist, is a one-of-a-kind creation, faithfully reflecting the rustic harmony of the artist’s surroundings.

By blending two of natures alluring elements, wood and stone, Tina creates functional, culinary accessories. Her Cutting Boards, Gathering Boards, Serving Platters and Dipping Trays will elevate your daily or special occasions.
Tina meticulously searches through arborists’ wood lots looking for the perfectly flawed, cracked and knot filled hardwoods that other woodworkers pass by because of these deficits. She chooses smaller pieces of wood that will be enhanced with Stone like turquoise, lapis, malachite or chrysocolla, and inlays these into these cracks and voids. Following a similar method to the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where broken and fractured pottery is mended with gold or silver dust, thereby restoring the fragments to a functional and more beautiful piece. http://knot-wong.squarespace.com/
Marilyn's art is reverse painting on acrylics. Yep, she paints in reverse from the most forward elements of the piece to the furthest back. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate its magic.

Painting in a modern impressionist style, Marilyn's art is infused with brilliant light and color. Her use of textured, bold brush strokes magnifies the vivid impressionist style.
