Mixed Media / Metal Work
In 1973, Tom co-founded Mansion Glass Studios in Olympia, WA. This collaboration won recognition locally and nationally for their design and fabrication of Architectural Art Glass commissions. In 1990, he established his own studio, pursuing his interest in painting, metal fabrication, mixed media construction and printmaking.
Abstract Impressionist Painting
Tom began painting in 2008 through a series of visionary experiences in which he received a flood of light - the essence of love. He paints to convey this energy, the beauty of humanity and nature. His large scale abstract impressionism is meant to provoke and engage on a deep subconscious level. His paintings are emotive.
Oils & Cold Wax
Born in Montreal, Quebec, to a draftsman and oil painter, Sue's artistic journey began early. A pivotal moment was viewing a solo exhibition by realist artist, Trechikoff, at age 10. She then began drawing faces and eventually painting portraits, selling her first at 19. Her most recent artistic engagement has been with the mix of oil paints and cold wax, allowing for experimentation with texture not possible in other mediums.
Hanson has been painting in oils since she was eight years old. As a teenager, she apprenticed at a mural studio where she painted 40-foot-tall works on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history.

Itai and the artists he represents create unique, one of a kind stone sculptures from raw stone quarried in Zimbabwe.
Metal & Glass Fusion
Oropeza is best known for his larger than life, otherworldly fusions of glass and metal. And while these creatures may seem to guard the gateway to his imagination, his artistry is far from hidden. A simple artist's loft provides the canvas for his safari of horses, dragons, bulls and more, alongside a plethora of portraits cut into steel and shaped to create the dynamic highs and lows of a woman's figure or man's face.
Patty Roberts works with the glass kiln casting technique of Pate de Verre - translated from French as paste of glass. She uses layers of glass paste, made from crushed glass and a binding agent. Patty works primarily with open-faced molds creating dimension with color placement and sculptural effects of metal inclusion.

For Jeffrey, working in ceramics is a blending of physical and emotional elements while feeling the restorative characteristics of clay.

His resulting images range from culturally familiar individual pieces to more esoteric series based on man's inner struggle with modern society.
