bev suszek

 I have always been fascinated with creating art, from portraiture, watercolor, Kindness Rocks Project, Photography and now wood carving. I had the wonderful privilege of studying photography with Rick Sheremeta of Alpenglow Productions, Montana, and Joel Sartore, of National Geographic. I love being out in nature and enjoying all the beauty Mother Earth provides for us on a daily basis. The challenge is in capturing photos of these majestic scenes.

sharon rickard

Sharon has always had a love of art from that first wonderful smell of new crayons and “dad-made” art table at age 5, until the present”husband-made” studio. She taught third grade for 26 years and later taught art for future teachers at Alpena Community College. She has always received inspiration from nature, having grown up with an abundance of it, but also enjoys animal subjects, especially dogs. “ They are constantly posing for me. Sharon states, "Color in itself is fascinating, especially bright colors and the way they can be coaxed into so many shades. I like to put them in unexpected places.” Today, Sharon is a member of the Northeast Michigan Artists’ Guild, and still has the art table her dad made
