Type your paragraph here.
Nancy Hoover began as a sketch artist at age 12, drawing illustrations for an instructional book about ceramics. Later, she acquired a degree in graphic design and also became a watercolor artist. Ten years ago, Nancy found her passion for jewelry design. She has attended William Holland School of Lapidary Arts in Georgia, and Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco. Her silver and goldsmithing skills along with her love of gemstones combines to create unique and eye-catching art jewelry pieces. “I aspire to have all of my jewelry be a piece of wearable art. I try to think ‘out of the box’ and use my metal-smithing and design skills to create jewelry which shows balance and beauty yet not always be symmetrical or ‘expected’. Using precious and semi-precious gems to showcase their color and energy to give the wearer that special feel, is my goal.”
Sue Principe says: “I am so pleased to be LAA’s Artist of the Month for October! I enjoy being a part of the local art community and have met so many wonderful artists and patrons through events hosted by organizations within our Tri Valley area. My chosen medium for personal expression is art glass ~ specifically fusible glass, aka warm or kiln formed glass. Creating decorative or artistic pieces utilizing warm glass is a multi-step process ~ the first step being a vision of the finished piece, followed by much trial and error, eventually achieving a variant of the original vision. Some of my favorite pieces have been the result of experiments gone bad (or good, depending on the perspective). In each of my projects, however, I strive to find a pleasing combination of design and color, perhaps with a bit of practicality thrown in for good measure.”
Helene Marie Rylance, Watercolorist
Helene enjoys both studio and plein air painting. Although she had done art all her life, she only began experimenting with watercolors a few years ago. She enjoys the challenge and versatility of the medium, bringing supplies with her when she travels.
