My early inspiration came from the Impressionists. Then printmaking with Lasansky demanded a higher skill level and draftsmanship which I thrived upon. I find I am often drawn to mythology to explain the images my mind's eye reveals to me. Being an identical twin has encouraged my awareness of dualities, double images, echoes and related subjects as well as my fascination with old photographs and history.
Multimedia painter. Emphasis on representational and abstract art.
I am a pastel landscape artist. Inspired by nature, I am especially attracted to the lighting, textures, and moods of country roads, wetlands, woods, and fields.
I am engaged in continuing to paint from my experiences in Ghana, W.Africa, working in a U.N. Refugee camp. I have journeyed there on 7 different occasions to work with refugees from other war-torn countries in W,Africa. Having worked for many years as a clinical social worker, my hope is to convey through my paintings [rather than just words]the "stories" of these traumatized people. I am trying several media to accomplish this.
I make beautiful ceramic plates & platters with elegant lace patterns imprinted in the clay. Turquoise is one of my favorite glaze colors. I am a member of the Potters Guild and participate in their sales. The Ann Arbor Art Center sells my pottery.
Armed with a BFA and a serious need to draw, I began my illustration career in 1980. Surviving 8 years in newspapers as an art director and the noxious fumes from my painting process, I lives and work in Ann Arbor. A teacher for over 25 years at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, my oil paintings have appeared in numerous publications and have earned awards from, among others, Print, Communication Arts and the Society of Publication Designers.
A multi-disciplinarily art & design studio creating objects + environments through the decorative arts – green design, personalized custom furniture/cabinetry, home furnishings, decorative finishes, materials and color consulting, interior and graphic design, and fine art prints and sculpture. Reclaim a piece of Michigan’s environmental legacy created by the Emerald Ash Borer with fine picture frames and furniture by Urban Ashes. Designer, Paul M. Hickman’s new line of frames and furniture, Urban Ashes, is hand-crafted with transitional/disabled labor in Michigan from Michigan urban wood, salvaged from local Ash and other trees. These are trees that grew on our streets, in our yards, in our parks and in other urban areas. The entire Urban Ashes collection is hand-finished with petroleum-free finishes often highlighting the unique character of the Ash and other urban woods used in these frames.
I am an artist, a teacher of encaustic and collage media, and an Arts Alliance board member.

As a professional illustrator, I carry the precision of illustration into my fine art. I enjoy exploring exciting ranges of color, texture and light. I like to present common objects such as food, still lifes, and animals in unusual and interesting ways. Each stroke is applied with the spirit of the subject matter in mind. Inspiration comes from the beauty and simplicity found in nature or things we encounter everyday, which can be overlooked in our hurried lives.
I am a professor of music history focusing on music in the U.S. employed at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance. I play bassoon and work with Great Lakes Performing Artists Associates.
Through my fine art silk paintings, I seek to re-create and share treasured interludes of being present in nature, engaged with the light, colors, and textures. For teaching, I find that this medium is ideal for nurturing the creative process.
Creative, responsive architectural services for commercial buildings and accessible residences
I am a painter, digital artist and a jewelry maker. I do custom alphabet art.
When painting scenes of rural Washtenaw County I am attracted by its vivid imagery, especially found in farmsteads. Using a representational style, I strive to achieve a painterly quality. My landscapes capture horizontal sunlight and long shadows, dewy atmosphere, and seasonal changes. I'm especially interested in recording the elements of time’s impact on our lovely barns; highlighting their stateliness as they age.
I am an artist in Saline, MI, working in watercolors, acrylics, and colored pencil. I also teach colored pencil at 212 Arts Center in Saline, MI. My home is my studio and I am available by appointment.
Pastel Artist, Paintings & Drawings, Instructor at the Ann Arbor Art Center
fiber arts: art quilts, spinning, dyeing; polymer clay; collagraphs
watercolors, oils, mixed media and collage.
I am a photographer and digital imager. My images are printed on Tiles, Canvas and Paper
Paintings and works on paper.
Francesc Burgos, a Barcelona-born ceramist, designer and architect, currently makes one-of-a-kind ceramic and mixed-media sculptures for the home, some functional, some purely contemplative, always distinct and elegant, playful yet robust.
I make figurative art that explores feminine archetypes of the hero, adventurer, performer, and dreamer.
Hello! I make Fairy Doors! These are little doors that you can place around your home to welcome in fairies and other fae folk (who will hopefully bring you good luck.) I make them all by hand out of clay and embellishments. There are other things I do/have tried, but my fairy doors have been the most successful so far. Glassblowing has been another favorite activity, but is quite costly. I have been an arts enthusiast for as long as I have been able to hold a crayon. When I was growing up I found that nothing could make me happier than experiencing or creating art, in all its forms. Now that I have done lots of experimenting with where I want to take my skills, I am (hopefully) ready to get my personal business up and running. A "regular job" can not compare to starting a business of your own when it comes to personal joy and freedom, at least for me, and I hope to get the opportunity to explore my options as a young artist in a competitive economy.
artist, painter, sculptor, printmaker, lecturer, instructor, art activist
I call myself an all media artist/teacher, as i tend to go back and forth between medias. Although oils and pastels are my favorite,in the past I have spent a great deal of time as a potter, sculptor, photographer, weaver, and delved to some extent into watercolor and casein. Landscapes are my usual subject, having grown up on a farm where we were free to roam the country side, sometimes gathering wild flowrs, picking wild blackberries, or building playhouses in the woods. After spending several years doing black and white photography, I find digital photography a fascinating subject which I am still investigating. Several years ago I heard John Pappas was going to retire, so took a year of sculpture with him at EMU. I've been a member of the Ann Arbor Women Artists for many years, and more recently a member of the Ann Arbor Area Pastelists. I've received many awards and have had several one person shows of my work. I have a BS in Art, and earned 26 credits toward a masters in painting. My intentions were to get a masters in scultpure but at that time it wasn't offered. My efforts to get a masters was stopped to pursue a business in pot making. I spend 10 years going to art fairs to peddle my wares. Back problems made me go back to painting which I continue to this day. When my husbland retired in '81we bult a two story building, the first level is his shop while the second level is my studio. I have enjoyed being able to spread out in this great space, and work by myself. Early on I did invite other artists to join me, and hired a model. My studio is a great asset where I can show and store my work, or leave works in progress undisturbed until I can return to them. My studio can be found at 4901 Grandview, Ypsilanti, MI, 48197, which is in Pittsfield Township, near the Washtenaw Country Club. My email is . Please call me before you come to visit me at 734-434-2034. I welcome your call.
I am a mixed-media and fiber artist living in Ann Arbor. I received my BFA in Printmaking from EMU, but I currently enjoy making felt, art quilts, and mixed-media assemblages.
