I've been in the sign business here in Clear Lake for 26 years. My interest in computer graphics started in about 1988, writing a program to display colorful graphic numbers for my then 3 year old step son. A few years later, I got a computer system powerful enough to do sign work and and started hobbying with paint programs.

LCAC editorial comment

Preson W. Fennell
I learned to weld and torch at about age 7. By age 18 I started to work as a professional metal fabricator. By age 30 I had gained much knowledge in many disciplines of metal working, but I couldn't stand the environment... so I fired my life. I went back to college and along the way, took a sculpture class. It felt like I had been training for most my life to build metal sculpture. Preston W. Fennell
Bill Bluhm
Bill Bluhm's Heartwood Arts was founded in 1981, inspired by the Waldorf School pedagogy and the artistic and architectural indications of Rudolf Steiner. Created with the needs of the child in mind, our toys nourish the imitative and imaginative capacities of the unfolding child. They warm the heart and engage the hands in healthy play and are found in homes and schools throughout the world. Our natural finish is composed of beeswax and linseed oil. www.heartwoodarts.com
Karen Turcotte Williams
I arrived at my conceptual perspective through a certain cynicism that ecology and history teach. A background in horticulture has taught me to respect the fragility and beautiful cruelty of nature's evolutionary web. As a student of history I understand the inevitable repetition of conquering and destruction man has sustained for millennia. My message is a contrast between primordial forms and colors, and the preternatural chaos of man's dominance. Nature is the ultimate sculptor. Using natural materials in unexpected ways, I strive to invite the viewer to take a closer look at their place in the world.

Rolling Ball Sculpture

Wire art that captures the mind and frees the imagination

Kinetic artwork is nothing new, something we come across every now and again.

It is a wonderful thing that very few of us get a chance to experience, and enjoy.

I currently live on a small walnut acreage and feel connected to earth and surroundings. I began painting about six years ago, when the activity helped me through some rough times. It grew from there; I am basically self taught. Each painting experience is a learning experience. My educational background includes anthropology, music, ethnomusicology and wildlife biology.

I want to see all the way into the essence: to express with color and brush stroke the feelings flowers and vines, trees and rocks, inspire in me. Inspiration comes from many angles and I aspire to understand and interpret those inspirations, to express a completely personal vision.

Hidden away in Northern California, between the Coastal Redwoods and the High Sierra Mountains, at the northern edge of wine country, lies the county of Lake. Rich in western heritage and diverse in geographical features, we truly enjoy making this our home.

Home is the foundation of Geare Studios. We appreciate and encourage the unfolding of gifts and creativity we see in one another.  We look for the “Spirit-line” (an old pottery term) in our work — that point where design moves beyond what is formed by natural abilities, to what is formed by the Spirit.

Drawn to photography for both the immediacy of the image making process and the intrinsic alchemy of the darkroom ritual, she crafts her imagery using traditional 19th century processes which gives each piece its own unique character. Focusing primarily on the human figure, she investigates the universality of the form and its relationship with the natural world.
