Sea Turtle Face Swim 5 x 530
Jeanie is a self taught animal artist who specializes in scratchboard, pastels, acrylics and pyrography (wood burning). Her love of animals shows in her work as many of my customers feel they can see the personalities of the animals through the eyes - which are the souls of the art. She live in Geneva, Florida on 2 1/2 acres with her husband of 29 years, Drew, (also an artist and full time Taxidermist) and all of their critters! Her animals or babies are a Tennessee Walker named Shadow (a beautiful 15 year old Bay), 1 goat (Brat Boy), 4 cats: Summer, Squeak, Amana, Justin and Doo Doo, her 28 year old Cockatiel, and Peanut, her 5 year old house rabbit who thinks he is a cat. Jeanie's goals are to show and sell her latest line of hand crafted wooden boxes, vintage paddles, ceramic tiles and coasters, night lights and unique salvaged wood objects geared toward fishing and Florida wildlife. See more here online or stop by the gallery here at "The Hand" to see Jeanie's work.
"Wire Couple" earrings
Charlene has enjoyed creating things since childhood. This led to a natural progression to go to school to learn how to properly use a torch and hammer. Most of her work is in copper and silver wire; forged, fused, and hammered into simple, fashionable items. She likes to re-purpose metal so it can reach its full, beautiful potential.
The work that Stewart does is in the traditional realm of subject matter. Stewart works for a consistent style, while experiencing various subjects. He likes to show work habits and a commitment to a long-term career. He loves to see how someone reacts personally to the paint, to the composition and to their inner relationship to the painting. He wants the viewer to move into the painting, both physically and emotionally. If a personal vision is strong enough, light and texture captured on paper in watercolor can speak through any image. The most important thing Stewart has learned is to have my own uniqueness of vision.

They usually portray workers, agricultural products, birds and other animals, all with bright colors, strong contrast, and a sense of energy. He belongs to several national watercolor societies (FWS, NWS, TWSA, SW) and was a founding member of the Florida Watercolor Society. He has won major awards in their annual exhibitions, and his paintings are in numerous private, corporate, municipal, university, and museum collections.
Mary Field Nelson
Before Mary Field Nelson made silver daisies and timeless heart pendants, she removed dents in trumpet bells and soldered broken saxophone keys. With formal training as a musical instrument repair technician, Mary Field honed her metal-working skills in jewelers techniques as a goldsmith apprentice in Key West. There she learned the art of lost wax casting, producing complex shapes with fine detail first in wax, then cast in gold and silver.
In 2012, Mary Field began the silver clay class at the Artistic Hand. She learned to create fine silver jewelry from precious metal clay, and found this medium allowed her to create even finer detailed pieces without the extensive setup of lost wax casting. Mary Field's sea life, flowers and hearts come to life as wearable art.

Are these armadillos or aardvarks? That is the most frequently question Ginny has to answer. Why armadillos??? Ginny says, "Why not?" Her first dillo was made in 1992 for her parents 55th anniversary. After that, everyone she knew wanted one. Ginny has made them to match peoples' upholstery or curtains for home décor. A newly wed couple asked her to make one out of her bride's maid's dress fabric, so she would have it as a souvenir of her wedding day. Sports teams are the most popular, but special orders don't upset Ginny. She has always enjoyed sewing and these armadillos make it more fun for Ginny!
