Marsha Neal Studio
Handmade ceramic beads, pendants, beaded silk cord wrap bracelet kits, small terrarium sculptures, and tiny hanging vessels fill her Etsy shop. Her love and admiration of nature is expressed through her hands working in clay.
Jenny is a mixed media artist, creating sculptural pieces inspired by nature, folklore and mythology. These themes and inspirations are a thread unifying her perse body of work: mixed media collages, ceramic shrines and tiles. Her jewelry work incorporates her ceramic “Mythic Nature” line of sculptural pendants as well as metal, resin and gems.
She holds a fine art/art history degree and was a full time art/ceramics teacher before altering her career path. Now as a working artist, she creates in her 2 studios - the “dirty” clay studio and the “clean” jewelry/collage studio, accompanied by her canine companion and an ever present cup of coffee. When she is on the road, she can be found at arts festivals and fairy festivals all along the East Coast.
Lee specializes in locks, lots and lots of locks from as many sheep breeds as she can find. Needle felting and spinning are her passions, and she will search for just the perfect unique lock or fiber to make your fiber arts project just the way you imagined. She also has completed felted sculptures with incredible character and imagination.
William Renzulli is a self-taught artist whose early work focused on architecture and the built environment, depicting townscapes, and urban landscapes. He originally worked exclusively with watercolor, but eventually added pastels, clay mono typing, acrylics, and a variety of mixed mediums. The landscapes have become more rural, but the architectural elements persist.
Renzulli’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo and juried shows. He has been commissioned to create both commemorative prints and original work for a number of institutions, schools, and corporations. He has had numerous paintings accepted into the Pastel Society of America’s annual juried show and has won awards in two of those years. In 2002 he was awarded signature membership in the Pastel Society of America.
He is proud to be known as Sara Renzulli’s father.
Self taught artist from a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore. I've always had a passion for art and creating, I came across needle felting in 2014. It quickly became my dream medium and later my full time work and specialty. I draw my inspiration from animals and nature which are reflected in my felted sculptures and paintings.
