Lydia Hicks, "Wildflower Fields Forever":
My art is based off of things that make me happy - which usually includes flowers & bright colors. I am an art teacher who loves working with a variety of materials and experimenting. I love working with things found in nature (like clay & pressed flowers) as well as reusing & repurposing materials as much as possible. Specifically, I love to print my block prints on vintage fabrics and thrifted clothing items. My products are all hand made in my studio in my home! I carve and print my own linocut & woodcut prints, pick and preserve flowers for my pressed flower & 4 leaf clover jewelry, select and form silverware for my spoon rings, and hand stitch all my embroidery products.
Thomas Kuchenbecker, "Watercolors by TAK":
Stylized photo realistic watercolor paintings of Wisconsin inspired scenes using multiple layers to achieve high value contrast and deep color saturation with great attention to image details and scene composition
