I've carried around a box of broken china for years... they were too broken to glue back together, but simply too beautiful to just throw away! When I had the idea of creating jewelry out of these broken bits I decided to teach myself soldering and jewelry making. The best part about the necklaces, earrings, pendants, and key chains that I've listed is that they help create themselves! Where I decide to make a cut is often not where the plate or saucer decides to break. This means that every individual piece is completely unique, one-of-a-kind, never to be duplicated!
I also find a joy in mixed media art, ink and watercolors, charcoal stretches and acrylic paintings are some of my favorite. My goal is to maintain my sanity through reflective quiet creative time. What comes out on the paper is often a surprise!

I love Comic Art and Super Heroes. I have been working on my art form for the past 4 years and have currently just taken it professional with independent Children's book authors contracting me to illustrate their books to a studio in the UK contracting me to help in the development of a new superhero series. Along with my commissioned art and my own web comic book life is always on the go. I hope you all enjoy my work.
Savina Francisco is a fairytal artist whose work captures the magic and whimsy of the natural world.
Savina's love for the outdoors made Kanab, Utah the ideal spot to settle with her husband Warren and their family of dogs and cats. The breathtaking surroundings inspire her "old world" aesthetic toward painting and drawing. Although much of Savina's personal study is of the painters from the Northern Renaissance and the Romantic & Symbolist painters of the 19th century, her chosen mediums are pastel and graphite.
Hi, here is my bio...I have been making canes and hiking sticks for 25 years (One literally saved my life in Zions' natl park.) I have a very wide selection of woods and shapes to offer.
Cathryn McCormick, local artist, will have Open Studio the evening of the C to C Artwork.
