Exquisite Suzhou silk embroidery. Each stitch is by hand, using pure fine silk threads on silk satin, with some threads as fine as human hair.

Bruce continually explores brushwork techniques along with splattering, pouring and spraying. His landscapes, cityscapes and coastal scenes are representational with abstracted vignetted areas.

An avid hunter his entire life, Tim gained new perspective when he began viewing through the camera lens. Now an avid photographer, he specializes in wildlife and rodeo photography.

A GIA graduate gemologist, Laura’s inspiration begins to flow as she studies unusual gemstones. She then creates her unique jewelry with the gem, adding sterling silver, hammered textures and a high shine finish.
