Local artist, Peter Shelley hand crafts nautical art and rustic decor from driftwood and reclaimed Ohio barn siding. The natural elements on the shores of Lake Erie are the influence for his one-of-a-kind works of art. Peter’s wife, Robin adds her designer’s eye to many of his pieces.
Peter’s creations will bring a rustic, beach-side feel to any room in your home. His pieces include candle and wine bottle holders, lighthouses, whimsical sculptures, wall art, and miniature ships inspired from historic sailing vessels.

Upon retirement from Sandusky City Schools, where he was a teacher and a coach, Roger started building US Post Office banks for his grandchildren, and they love them.
Roger’s US Postal banks are hand constructed from American hardwoods; oak, maple, and hickory. Each is fitted with a genuine US Post Office box door that has either a key or a working combination to open. The PO box doors that Roger incorporates into his banks are generally made of brass and were used by the postal system from the 1890’s through the 1960’s.
These US Post Office banks make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, or any other special occasion!
Roger is a local artist who makes his home in Huron with his wife.
What fun a simple rock can be!
The blue guy is from when I was in kindergarten, so he’s got a little wear and tear on him. We collected the rocks and our teacher painted them for us. The shape of the rock and the way it felt in my hand was what sold me on it.
And the first gift that my niece, Chloe gave me when she was just a toddler was a rock (just glad that she handed it to me and didn’t throw it!).
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 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.

Originally 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.”

“There are rare moments in life when our faith is confirmed through events that can be described in no other way than MIRACULOUS!
As a result of recent blessing in my family, I was inspired to create these rosaries as talismans to my faith.”

Leo discovered the art of spray paint some time ago when he was in his garage with a couple cans of paint and a garbage can lid and the rest, as they say is history.
Pretty much anything is fair game for Leo’s painting from canvas to end tables, note cards to tile flooring.
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.
