Michael Stadul ~ Woodworking

IMG_3463

Michael has been crafting wood items for nearly 50 years along with his wife Ann Daniels, who contributes to the projects with her great sense of decorative style.

“We create a number of quality wood items from driftwood collected from Lake Erie and other sources, including barn wood. Our pieces are whimsical, practical, aesthetic and functional. They will work with just about any décor, and are ideal to enhance your own home or to give as gifts. Much of our work can be modified to meet individual preferences for special orders”.

Michael’s driftwood trees, coasters, and barnwood table are a welcomed addition to the shop!

Anne Hinton ~ Art Glass Designs

IMG_3423

Anne Hinton works with art glass to create one-of-a-kind pieces ranging from sun catchers to yard art to serving trays.  Her designs are inspired by the lakefront of Ohio’s North Coast.

She started working with art glass making traditional mosaics on wood.  As Anne’s interest in mosaics grew, she discovered the technique of mounting art glass on acrylic, grouting some and covering others with resin.  She also creates fun works of art using clay pots and mirrors as the base.

Anne lives in the Huron, OH and participates in area art shows.

Wine_Truck_2048x2048_110x110@2xOriginally from Vermilion, Kevin now resides in Westlake.  He travels extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe, capturing those experiences through his photography.  I’m happy to welcome him as one of the shop’s artists with his metal prints!

“Having a lifelong appreciation for the arts, a resourceful eye and a knack for creating things, I decided to share my vision of high-quality fine art decor with an emphasis on unique photography.  With the support of family and friends who have enjoyed my photography and custom picture framing over the years, I created Wall Zenmore, an online gallery offering fine art prints, framed prints, canvas prints, and metal prints.”

Alice Hennessy ~ Pretend Artist

 

Alice dubbed herself as the “Pretend Artist” because she doesn’t paint or sculpt, but what she does is definitely not pretend.

She cleverly embellishes old paintings with fun stickers and/or sayings that result in a completely unique interpretation of the original, then takes a picture of that and makes it into a photo notecard.IMG_3239

“I’m a diverse artist who is constantly creating in new ways, experimenting with media, and exploring new techniques. Curiosity, and the thrill I get from discovery are my driving forces and am inspired by adventure and resourcefulness.

I currently reside in German Village, Columbus, Ohio with my wife and two cats, where I practice illustration, graphic design, and paper making in my home studio.

My educational background is from Columbus College of Art and Design in illustration, which informs my attention to design, and understanding of commercially applied arts as tools in branding, marketing, communication, and most importantly to inspire people.”

Susan Schauer ~ Painter

Susan has “arted” all her life and found it to be a good winter pastime in her snow-belt hometown of Ashtabula, OH.

After graduating from Miami University, Ohio with an MEd, Art Education and hours beyond her Masters at Notre Dame and BGSU, Susan brought her appreciation for art to middle schoolers, teaching full time for over a decade in North Ridgeville, Amherst, and Elyria, followed by substituting in Vermilion and Milan.

Susan started painting murals, doing illustrations and teaching private art classes.  She began with portraits of people, but soon became proficient in animal portraits as well, and her work was commissioned by animal breeders in England, Sweden, France, and Japan.

Susan’s free-lance illustrations and design work have been in various magazines in the United States and Canada.  She is presently a cartoonist for the Vermilion Photo Journal.

“I have been so lucky to have been involved with art at work & “play”.  Art is a very important way for me to communicate thoughts & feelings.”
