Jason Limberg – Pen & Ink

“I’ve always had a deep fascination with the forest and it’s inhabitants. There is a mysterious, ephemeral quality of the natural realm that captivates me.
My work is a personal journal of the inner peace I find in the woods, integrated with musings of the animal’s lives weaving among the trees.”

Louis Lundin – Watercolors

Portraits, flowers, birch & aspen trees, & “sauna paintings.” Instructor.

Penney Mellen – Painter and Paper Art

I work with watercolors, acrylics and torn papers. I like to create cards, small tiny art gift cards, bookmarks, wrapping paper, my own envelopes, paper boxes/containers, paper jewelry, and more. I look for new ways to use papers in my work by recycling and repurposing colored papers of all kinds including my own watercolor or acrylic painted papers. I love textures and keep working to expand and add them into my work more often.
