Katie Bradford Osborne  Photographic Mixed Media & Art Jewelry I love installation art, and I think of my jewelry as human installation pieces- wearable art! I am also a portrait photographer, a graduate of the Art Institute of Philadelphia, and my passion for portraying emotions in a flash of time is evident in my mixed media art, all of which include my photographs, printed using my favorite alternative printing methods and put together with clay and paint, organic, vintage, and shiny new materials.

Kathy Skarvan Contemporary Fusion Art As an artist, I am driven by eye appeal. I have a passion for people, gain energy from my environment and am motivated by the emotional reward I receive when others appreciate my work. I am often asked, "What is fusion art?" Quite simply, it is as you might imagine. It's when multidisciplinary art mediums converge into one fine art piece. For me it is where products from the camera meet technology and other modes of creative expression. Visit Artist's Website

Betsy Vierck Digital, Acrylics, and Quartz/Agate Jewelry An accomplished and widely published non-fiction writer, Betsy turned her creative energy to painting with acrylics following a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease in 2009. "The brain changes and medicines that accompany PD often release creativity in people living with the disease. The phenomenon is not well understood. I am just so happy to have this passion, which distracts me from the shakiness, slowness, and stiffness that sometimes take over my body."

Aundra Howard Mixed Media My philosophy in life is to use every day as an opportunity to rewrite your story. To define who you are and what you do according to your own personal beliefs and desires. Every work of art serves as a stepping stone to an open window of endless creativity, an opportunity to explore, create and rewrite my creative journey as it continuously evolves into a wonderful palette of creative expression.

Marian Davis Mixed Media A fascination with contemporary botanical art began at the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA where I eventually taught botanical watercolor technique.  I strive to capture with precision the beauty of a plant at a particular moment in time.  Using a combination of watercolor, colored pencil, tempura and graphite I work to achieve a three dimensional painting.  Slowly I explore the detail of each subject and pause to appreciate the complexity of nature.
