I’ve been painting in oils since I was 12 years old. I am mostly self-taught. I’ve always had that compulsion or madness if you will to draw or paint. I grew up in Miami, did a lot of street art shows in the 80’s. Then painted in a restaurant called Cafe Tu Tu Tango in the 90’s as well as being represented in various Art Galleries. I like to paint bar scenes, musicians and street scenes. I like to paint from life then twist things into a Rythmic Cubist type of style. Many of the images I have on Etsy have been sold and are now available in print.

Watercolor painting is a favorite interest of mine, as it has become a labor of love that brings pure joy to the recipients of my works. I am captivated by painting pet portraits, but also paint homes, landscapes, seascapes, florals, and more.

Commissioned works are welcome, especially pet portraits and paintings of homes. I can email samples of my work, or visit my Facebook page. In addition to watercolors, I’m a graphic designer – you can visit my site here.

Ever since she picked up her first crayon, art has played a significant role in the life of Jessica (Bovey) Herman. Over time she has developed a passion for artistic expression. Painted human faces appear on her canvases. The people around her are the most fascinating of all subjects. Each one is different with many stories. Painting their faces in oil allows her to glimpse into their worlds.

Jessica spent many years dancing ballet. Her early work depicts her pointe shoes in various environments and hues. She feels that shoes have their own personalities much like people. With every step our shoes take us on our life adventure.

Jessica was born and raised in Waynesboro, PA where she attended St. Andrew School. In 2008 she graduated from Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor’s degree in fine art. She has recently been accepted to The George Washington University to pursue a Master’s degree in art therapy. Jessica and her husband, Mason now reside in Alexandria, VA.

Her work can viewed at www.jessicabovey.com

Title: Handmade Glass Plate Set of 4
Artist: James C. Meugniot
Artist Location: Barstow, California
Medium: handmade glass

I have worked with stained glass since 1984. During that period, I sold several commissioned pieces, light catchers and ornaments. In the mid 1990’s my “real” job in commissary store  management got in the way of this avocation and I put it aside until 2006 when I retired from that career. I then started to work with stained glass again, selling items at craft fairs.

In 2008, while attending the Art Glass and Bead Exposition in Las Vegas, my wife and I purchased a kiln, an introduction to glass fusing book and some 96 COE glass to fuse. I worked on a few easy projects to get the feel for fusing and then purchased some slumping molds.

I also purchased a small piece of dichroic glass and fused nine cabs for pendants. My wife wore one of the pendants to work and within a week, the others had sold. I soon acquired a second glass kiln.

Since then I have sold fused glass items, both jewelry and dishware at quite a number of craft fairs, farmer’s markets and even on line, using Facebook as a marketing tool.  In addition to my domestic sales, I have sold my jewelry to people in Japan, Holland, Australia, Germany and several other countries.  I maintain a very simple website at www.desertartglass.com and a presence on Facebook @ Desert Art Glass.

For those interested in purchasing my items, I can be contacted at jamesmeugniot@desertartglass.com or at my Facebook page as mentioned above.
