Sandy Hoeft, Painter
I am always amazed by the beauty of the flowers here in Tennessee. When we moved here 5 years ago from Alaska, we inherited a yard that is so well planned and landscaped that we almost always have something blooming. Each flower is unique in it's shape and color. I love capturing the vibrant, bold colors, the delicate soft colors and the different shapes of the petals. Each bloom has its own personality. My hope is to share the joy I get from these beautiful flowers through my paintings.

Julie Boisseau-Craig, Glass Artist
Artist Julie Fawn Boisseau-Craig works in porcelain and glass primarily but utilizes metals and wood as necessary to create her sculptural installations.

Julie also makes many functional works and wearable art in pottery and glass at Wild Pony Studio, her studio located in Rockford, Tennessee. Hot shop glass work is created at the Jackson County Green Energy Park in Dillsboro, North Carolina.

She has taught art at Western Carolina University, Southwestern Community College and Occonoluftee Institute for Cultural Art. Julie has shown nationally and participated in many workshops and demonstrations. Her work responds to the pieces and parts that make up our lives.

Julie observes the contradictions of our world and how those components come together to create memories. In her work she strives to combine components to bring out personal memories and feelings in her audience. Julie received her Masters of Fine Arts Degree in December of 2012.
