Gelinde Dittrich – Artist & Designer

Gelinde is a self taught, natural born artist with over 30 years of experience. Her passion for design and painting, combined with her love of wildlife and nature, inspired her to design a line of unique and beautiful hand-painted artistic home décor, furniture and accessories. “Mountain Lodge,” and “Sophisticated Rustic” can best describe her design style.

Mary Francis – Pastels and Fused Glass Jewelry
Although a scientist by training and profession, since childhood I’ve been fascinated with the arts. Growing up, I experimented with any and all arts and crafts media, even to the point of harvesting yucca and spiderwort to make my own jute and natural dye. As an adult I’ve worked in a number of media including earth and polymer clays, fused glass, watercolor and pastels. I must admit that I had a love-hate relationship with pastels initially, but they quickly became an affair of the heart and the center of my artistic devotion. With their rich and brilliant hues and velvety textures, I strive to capture the mood and drama of the moment. View Mary’s work here.
