Lynn is a life long gardener as well as a retired graphic artist and art teacher. So it is natural for her to make art that enhances the gardens where she spends so much time. This winter she had a wren inadvertently spend the winter in her plant room after it snuck in with the house plants coming in for the winter. That turned her thoughts to bird houses. Houses for birds and also whimsical houses just for fun and decoration - to be enjoyed indoors or out. Lynn enjoys transferring the textures of nature (and other cool stuff!) to her slab constructed pieces. They will be at home nestled among your garden plants or on a sunroom shelf. They make her happy - to make and to look at. She hopes they bring your garden and home the same joy.

With covid-19 this year I'm sure that you'll see, that motivation for art was so hard for me.
But with spring here and all things a bloom, the art also blooms inside of my room.
The glass that I have, it's time to cut and bake. Spring flowers, birds and rain gauges I'll make.
Things for your garden and home you will see. If you like it, then buy it and yours it will be.
A piece from an artist is a wonderful thing you know. They put their heart and soul into each piece in the sale.
LeAnne at South20Studios uses a variety of materials with salvaged and recycled components. She likes the juxtaposition of things that appear to be at odds with each other. This spring she has been busy cutting car hoods and mixing the metal in totems, mosaic flowers, and even sterling silver earrings.
Her colorful totems can stay out year round. Spring totems include owls, birds, flowers, and protective eyes.
Spring has also inspired new mosaic fish. No pond necessary, these fish can add a punch of color and thrive among your plants year round.
Her mosaic and metal flowers can turn you into an instant success with no care or watering. Look for the unusual purple hood and some new flower colors.
