Stained Glass Windows and Lamps by Carolyn Insler...This site is a collection of pieces made over a period of 30+ years. I was introduced to Stained Glass in Ann Arbor Michigan in 1974 when I met a man who owned a studio on State Street. As I learned the art of Stained Glass, I was thrilled at the concept of taking raw materials to create functional lamps and windows. I enjoy the entire process...from creating a design to the physical labor of cutting and leading a piece. I Also enjoy working with customers and evaluating his or her style to incorporate my own design ideas.

Award-winning botanical artist Andrea Wilson. Prints, etchings and more. My watercolor paintings cover a range of botantical subjects--leaves, flowers, berries, butterflies and a few landscapes. In recent years I have evolved into not only painting on paper, but also taking on the challenge of painting on vellum. In my case means prepared calfskin. This surface was used before paper became affordable and common in the past few centuries. The old illuminated manuscripts were done on skins. It has been difficult to find books on the subject of vellum painting techniques. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to take a workshop class from Carol Woodin, who is an internationally recognized award-winning artist on vellum.
