JO REIMER, FEATURED ARTIST. Jo is a creative being who loves to surround herself with beauty. Making art with paint, ink, and graphite on paper and canvas gives her a daily infusion of joy. She is passionate about collage and color, and her art is how she makes sense of the world and connects with others.
NATASHA RAMRAS, FEATURED CRAFTER. Natasha has been interested in art since she was a child, and throughout her lifetime has explored a wide variety of media. She paints in both oil and watercolor, inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, and has also gotten hooked on the beauty of silk painting, which has similar qualities to those of watercolor. Lately she has been exploring jewelry making, using sterling silver and semiprecious stones.
