Wearable Art - Jewelry
Guest Artist @ Birdsong Studio, 5 Sixth Avenue, Betterton, MD 21610
Joy's fun "infinity" bracelets and necklaces are inspired by the colors and textures of combinations of glass, shell, crystal, porcelain and silver plated tube beads and charms. These are strung using a strong .8 mm elastic cord. Joy's wearable art is easy to wear, no clasps to struggle with. Stretch it on and it goes "round and round". Her popular bracelet/necklace can be triple wrapped as a bracelet or simply worn as a necklace. Earrings and kids jewelry are also available.

Guest Artist @ RiverArts Education Center, 200 High Street, Suite A, Chestertown, MD 21620
I have been a weaver for more than 15 years. I am interested in a variety of weave structures and techniques. Most of my work is one of a kind. There are some pieces that I repeat but I try to tweak them so that none are exactly alike. In addition to exhibiting at RiverArts, I am a member of Delaware by Hand and exhibit at the Biggs a Museum in Dover. This year I will also be participating in a show at the Learâ€™s Historical Society.
5096 Edwards Lane, Rock Hall, MD 21661
I use local wood and driftwood as my inspiration to create unique pieces of furniture, boxes, trays, stands and whatever the material dictates. No two are alike nor can they be duplicated.
The Eastern Shore provides me with abundant subjects to interpret and share.

23441 Cacaway Farm Lane, Chestertown, MD 21620
I draw and paint in graphite, Prismacolor pencil, acrylic, and oil. I am inspired by the overt beauty found in the world along with the collateral, or unintended, beauty life reveals to us when we’re bold enough to look. Persistent subjects and themes in my work are birch trees, oysters, Canada geese, and more recently, capturing the strength and beauty of our differences in a climate of deep racial, political, and moral divide.

My goal is to express on canvas the beauty that I see everyday and the joy I feel when painting. It seems that I'm always striving to paint the invisible...those memorable and touching "Moments in Time" that each of us carries in our heart. I love painting flowers, children, pets and landscape. I have recently completed several sets of greeting cards to include All Occasion, themed cards around the Chesapeake Bay, Historic Annapolis and humorous Wine Cards.

Drawing / Illustration, Oil Painting, Pastels, Watercolor
122 N. Queen Street, Chestertown, MD, 21620
Art should touch the viewer as much or even more than the artist. I love color, form and line. I want to use those elements to capture a mood and lighting. I prefer to mix architectural and natural elements into my images. There is a Navajo prayer that affirms a desire to "walk in beauty" that I hold dear. I have produced murals, decorative and faux images, impressionistic and abstract images. My preference for oils and pastels stems from a love of the rich color each has.

I have been creating metal art for the last 13 years as a fulltime endeavor. I jumped off not knowing if I would have enough ideas. Little did I know that I will run out of time before I run out of ideas! Nature is a huge inspiration coupled with the continued question of asking myself, What If? My current focus has been smaller sculpture work in stainless steel.

Kevin's highly original work is painted on glass, from behind with acrylics and other mediums.
“This is what God led me to, and me saying thank you to God. I use acrylic latex with other mediums on glass, painting blind from the back of the glass. I started pencil drawing in the seventh grade. Painting came later. God and recovery is why I got back into painting on glass after 30 years."

119 High St., Chestertown, MD 21620
For many years I have used pastel's beautiful pigments to depict the farms and rivers of Maryland's Eastern Shore. The architecture of a working farmyard provides an endless source of inspiration while my paintings of creeks and rivers near Chestertown deal with the complexity of nature in the interplay of light, water, and tangled grasses. Most recently, painting trips to Maine have provided a new challenge--portraying the dynamic interaction of waves and rocks on its rugged coastline.

Coming back to drawing and painting after sixty years, I am enjoying experimenting with subjects and mediums. From taking photos, to deciding on what to capture from them, and to discovering how to convey what is there; the entire process never stops widening and having its own fascination for me.

I utilize various art techniques including printmaking (etching, mezzotint, woodcut, monotype), bookmaking, painting and photography. My subject matter mainly stems from my love of nature. My style comes from my love of black and white photography, high-contrast images, and the energy from lively, vibrant colors. I currently live and work in Chestertown, Maryland.

Every painting is a discovery process.
Metal, Pottery, Silver Jewelry
312 Cannon St. - 2d Floor, Chestertown, MD 21620
I enjoy doing detailed work, so I am drawn to making small works of art from silver - earrings, pendants, chains, and bracelets. From designing the piece, cutting the silver, forming, and soldering to finishing and polishing, the process requires patient handwork. I also make handbuilt pottery, often small boxes which complement the jewelry.

I am often inspired by nature and my sculptures and baskets can serve as colorful and decorative highlights for a wall, or a table. Some are utilitarian, while others are unique works of Art.
I incorporate natural outdoor treasures I have found in my weaving. My sculptured work is adorned with acorns, shells, pine cones, seed pods and many natural treasures.
My work reflects the beauty I see in the world around me and the natural surroundings here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

When I retired, I wanted to open a yarn shop to share my love of knitting. What I really wanted to do was knit and teach the love of knitting. With the help of world class knitting instructors, I learned not only how to make my garments handmade rather than homemade, but also how to teach others to do the same. I have taught in Maryland and Maine for 20 years. In my NEW studio you will see beautiful designer garments made with the best yarns in beautiful colors and color combinations.
