Kristen Brown - My medium is wool rug hooking. It is basically another way to paint a picture but my palette consists of strips of colorful wool fabric. I prefer to use “re-purposed" wool which comes from damaged or outdated clothing. I take garments apart, wash and dry them to fluff the fibers, and sometimes tweak the colors in my dye-pot. I cut the strips wider or narrower depending on the level of detail desired. I pull small loops through a foundation fabric to create my design. Rug hooking is snail-paced work but the soft, tactile nature of the process is both inviting and meditative.

Grace Christie - My name is Grace Christie. I am 17 years old and go to Chi Hi. I have taken foundations of art, painting and drawing studio, welding, and AP art for 2 years. Outside of school, I take an extra art class at Revelations Studio. I also have worked on a lathe making wooden bowls. I am excited to show my art to the community, along with all the other artists.
Joyce Cox - After years in a demanding profession, I am happy to be taking time to do artwork again. I am an animal and a nature lover at heart, which greatly influences my work. My current artwork incorporates woodburning and painting. Each piece is hand drawn on wood panels, then woodburned and painted using acrylics with a paint-wash technique to allow for hints of the wood grain to show through and given a matte finish. The frames are hand crafted by my husband out of various hard woods and hand finished by me.
