Color is important to both of these award winning artists. Claudette Lee-Roseland's abstract paintings use color to amuse, interest, and inform the viewer, through oils, acrylics and encaustic mediums.

Claudette Lee-Roseland’s joy of creation leads her to produce layered abstracts that have mystery in the lines and shapes. She said, “I make art because it provides a place for my creative, busy mind to play. I love to draw and have taken the act of coloring to a new level in my life. I have been hooked on art since my first box of crayons. My house is filled with original paintings-all reminding me of the people I know that painted them. The best part is when someone else enjoys my paintings as much as I do. Art involves a two-way process, the painting and the viewing. The painter begins and the viewer completes the process.” Claudette has been creating art and teaching art for more than 25 years. Visit Claudette’s website: claudetteleeroseland.com
Jeanette Payne said, “I have always enjoyed exploring possibilities, experiencing the evolution of ideas, and above all, translating my personal voice into precious metal forms. I strive for uniquely personal pieces that comfortably adorn the body with a graceful, natural and timeless rhythm. All of life's experiences, great and small, are inspirational. Observation and reflection yield understanding and arouse curiosity. From viewing microscopic images of the surface of cells to walking in the sun on the shores of Lake Michigan, from the joy of teaching to the revelations of being taught, by keeping my mind and soul open to all possibilities, I always come away richer.” Jeanette is a Metalsmithing teacher and maintains her private studio: jazart.
