Tammy Ford - Acrylic or watercolor is generally my media of choice, I also use graphite, colored pencil, mixed media and most recently, collage. Sue Martin, my high school art teacher, greatly influenced me with her encouragement. Over the course of many years I’ve trained with several artists, learning and gaining the confidence required to open an art studio and small gallery of my own. In 2018 I left a twenty-year career as a hair and nail designer to become a self-employed artist.
Bridge to an Unknown City
Heart of Life
Don Gaber - I am a self-taught artist applying a lifetime of skills and experiences to create unique art using reclaimed materials. My medium of choice is antique or well-worn iron and steel and reclaimed barn lumber, but also utilize vintage parts. I enjoyed many art and industrial arts courses growing up in northern Wisconsin, and began creating and selling sculptures at age 12. I recently retired as a senior lecturer from UWEC to return to my passion of art, and live near Eau Claire on a hobby farm built from reclaimed materials with my wife of 40 years, Laura. www.repartsart.com for more!
Fine Wood and Iron
David Heinsohn - With experience in most of the standard mediums I now prefer to use heavy body acrylic applied with a brush, painting knife, or both in the majority of my works. Many of my paintings begin with a blank canvas with no pre-conceived subject. After applying a few lines or splashes of color the painting begins to show me what it wants to be and I develop it from there. Much of my work is designed to invoke a mood or reaction with a minimum of detail.
