Ellen Ellerbee, Somerville, MA ~ Jewelry, accessories & post cards
‘I am inspired by the depth and variety of colors and patterns in the natural world. I like to use a combination of natural materials and man-made to celebrate this enormous diversity. In my photography, I enjoy capturing the small details that may be missed such as droplets of rain catching the light, the transparent nature of an autumn leaf or light catching a spider’s web. My hope is that others will be uplifted by catching glimpses of beauty, and that I can in a small way bring joy to someone’s day’ Ellen
Liza Zvereva, Somerville, MA ~ Jewelry, stained & recycled glass
“The thrill of the unknown, the excitement of exploration when creating a new piece or trying a new technique, and the reaction to my artwork – a smile, joy, or just a reflection – all help me in transforming my innate desire to express myself through painting, sculpting, stained glass and jewelry creation. I strive to create quality works of art while keeping in mind that some of my pieces will not only be displayed on a wall or a shelf, but also will be worn by real people in their daily lives. ” Liza
