Sherry Williamson loves painting pets and everyday places and things with a “quirky twist and brightly saturated colors.” She began painting in 2008 when she was inspired by her 20 pound pet cat, and then went on to paint over 200 pet portraits.

Mariah Hatta, a local ceramics artist and owner of House Of Terriers, a creative ceramics company, will join us again in July and will be bringing her beautiful heart pieces. Grab them while you can because they will not last long!

Sergio Valdivia is a vibrant artist and dance instructor who we are so excited to have join us this July! Of his work, Sergio says, “If you meet me one day and see that my hands, arms, etc are covered with paints forgive me but I tend to get very ‘involved’ in my artwork and having paint on me expresses the person I am.”
