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.”
