After spending 20 years in the business world, Meg decided to pursue her passion and has been creating art for the past 15 years. For many years she owned Glass Impressions and created exquisite painted stemware and glassware. Her latest artwork is creating beautiful and vibrant canvases and glassware using an acrylic pour technique.
“I enjoy the freedom of creating and the originality of each piece of work. When I have completed an acrylic pour on canvas, it never really matches what was in my mind’s eye when I began the artwork—I love that element of surprise, and am always fascinated by the shapes and blended colors that have manifested by the time the canvas has dried.
It gives me great pleasure to share my artwork with others because I often get varying visual interpretations which can be an impetus to my creativity.”
Melissa Francisco calls herself “Washed Up”, referring to the materials that she uses in her designs that she has found on the shores of Lake Erie. A good portion of her work brings new life to driftwood; through sculptures, painted pieces, or as accents.
Melissa has something for every season. Especially stunning are her driftwood Santas!
Janine Jacobs-Beleski lives in Vermilion, Ohio and has been creating and selling her artwork for more than 20 years. She has exhibited her paintings in many galleries throughout the United States and Canada. Janine states, “When I am painting, I often lose track of time. I become completely involved with the work in progress. It dictates to me where I should go, the intensity of the colors and the overall mood of the picture.” Her art has been described by others as portraying an overwhelming dramatic story of stormy landscapes, wild and emotional florals, intense, sometimes moody portraits, all with a wash of unrestricted color.
