Beth Creekmore - I am a self taught artist working with acrylics, oil paints and 3 dimension art involving joint compound. I love doing abstract paintings as it allows your mind to interpret the paintings as you see them. Having moved from Seattle, Washington to Lake Wissota, I became entranced with the beautiful scenery of trees and water, especially during the winter snows, that I began to paint them. I recently became a member of The Valley Art Association. I have art available at Artisan Forge Studios in Eau Claire.

Mountain Lake

Nancy Erickson Dutmer - Theatrical and artistic upbringing heavily influenced her creative path through life. Most of her adulthood was spent singing, acting, directing and choreographing in the theatre, including a costuming and choreography stint in LA with Christopher Lloyd, John Goodman and Jane Leeves. While she maintained this career, she pursued a college education to become an art teacher. Nancy became discouraged with teaching before graduation, so she focused on becoming a visual artist. With several awards and art studies under her belt, she and her family left her birthplace of Illinois, and moved to Wisconsin. The Northwoods inspired paintings of lakes, fish, birch, dogs, deer and bears.

Mary Elworthy - Retired in 2007 from a 40-year teaching career and started dabbling in water-color in 2009, after taking a workshop from Drawn to the Word artist Paul Oman. Mary continues to take workshops offered both around the state and abroad and also enjoys painting in her studio, at the monthly Chippewa Valley Watercolor Artist meeting at Beaver Creek, at Karlyn’s U of K workshops, workshops with Jean Accola, Paul Oman, Sterling Edwards, and with her Watercolor Wednesday painting group. Her work is displayed periodically at Beaver Creek, Heyde Center in Chippewa Falls, Eau Claire County Courthouse, Altoona Library, on the Valley Art Association website and at her home.
