Paintings by Rachel Jones

Rachel Jones works in oils, watercolors, charcoal and acrylics. Selective realism and  various layering techniques are often utilized to create narrative portraiture.

Lone females are often depicted in her work. The images are quiet and mysterious as the subjects fluctuate between distancing and inviting viewers into the space. Jones says, “My aim is not to tell a story from beginning to end, but to have observers immerse themselves in a moment.” She often focuses on the non-traditional beauty that the French describe as 'jolie-laide'. “I like the fact that despite less than perfect features there is beauty. I'm drawn to the quirky, the odd, the not so perfect. The imperfections individualize us."

“I’m not just painting the individual. I’m painting about the individual.”

Handmade Jewerly by kent kurrus

Kent Kurrus, owner of By Natures Designs, has always fostered a love of the outdoors and it’s beautiful, yet powerful and, sometimes deadly forces. He began working with rocks and lapidary a few years ago before discovering the possibilities that existed with sea glass and sea shell. Mother Nature did most of the work and he helped the finish process along with tumbling, polishing and jewelry work. It is a constant experimentation process that adheres to one principle: “Keep it rustic, elegant and simple!” Mother Nature does most of the work; I just add the finishing touches!!

While “By Natures Designs” is purely a pursuit of pleasure and creative release, it is quickly blossoming into a business and artistic pursuit.
