My work is about animals living in a human environment. The structures we build provide the spaces where we live and work. However, the space between buildings is also important. This is the space where cars park, trees grow and animals live. It’s sometimes too easy to miss it.
Jean Canavan derives inspiration from her observation of daily life. Her watercolor still life and landscapes often reflect transitions of light and shadow, and strive to express a certain sense of memory of time and place. Jean has exhibited in several solo shows and many group exhibitions. Her work is included in many private and public collections.
fine art, decor, accessories
Katherine Downie refers to herself as an Abstract Realist, as most of her paintings are painted very realistically, but are cropped so that they become abstract. Bright, vibrant color, small details that bring out hidden details and a touch of childhood whimsy are reoccurring themes in Katherine's paintings and illustrations.
felt supplies and other hand sewing projects
Busy and creative, but find it hard to carve out time to be creative? My TaDaa! Studio carries an array of felts, felt balls and hand-sewing projects. Items that were hard for me to find in the sizes and quantities I wanted so when I found them, I thought others might like them too. I love the "TaDaa!" moment when I am proud of what I've made and started TaDaa! so that I could pass that feeling along to you.

jewelry and fine art
My work has always been inspired by my immediate environment where I find material for unique jewelry and art. The designs showcase the beauty of nature as well as its meaning to me as sanctuary and its fragility. Besides the found materials I use sterling silver, fine silver, copper and brass to enhance the beauty of my findings.
