Danette Steele Jones

"As primarily a watercolorist, my favorite subjects to paint are portraits that tell a story,

whether it is the hardship in an old weathered face or an arrogant rooster strutting his stuff.

I focus on the beauty, color and humor within ordinary everyday routines and paint from that."

William Thomas

“En Masse”

William focuses his work within the realm of botanical art, with a fresh vision of realism to environment.

His current series 'en masse' specifically reflects the environ of each species within a mass setting.

Each floral and/or foliage specimen is presented as it thrives amongst many of its kind,

which highlights variety of shape, contour, foliage display,

play of light, color, rhythmic vibrancy and balance.

Debbie Reese



Charlotte Holder

“Animals Out & About”

Her works often carry playful humorous titles that not only reflect her extraordinary wit,

but her deep spiritual and philanthropic commitment to not only her immediate community,

but to the world at large. Charlotte’s greatest joy is to bring humor and a sense of the possible

to children and collectors of all ages (including adults).
