FEATURED ARTIST – LANE CLEM
In 2008, Lane Clem retired from 32 years in the banking industry. “One of the things I did immediately upon retirement was pick up my paints and brushes for my own entertainment and relaxation… I found that I enjoyed it and I especially enjoyed doing paintings of classic and antique automobiles. When friends and family began asking me to do paintings of their favorite cars, I discovered that this could be an outlet for my creative side.”
FEATURED CRAFTER – DENISE HERSHEY
Denise Hershey designs and creates unique nature-inspired jewelry in pleasing combinations of stone, metal, glass or wooden beads. “My pieces are elegant, yet natural, arrangements that feel comfortable to wear and make the wearer look beautiful.”
