Jeff Lapin

Each of Jeff's paintings holds personal meaning--from his own experiences or from those who commission Jeff to create an image that's important to them. Jeff strives to paint not only in a representational fashion, but to capture the emotion or character of a person or a scene.

Jean Riordan
Oils, and acrylics

Always central to Jean's work is a love of and a desire to show beauty—the beauty of the natural world, of pattern, of texture, and of movement. For example, Jean endeavors to capture change through reflections that shimmer in a pond. Her love is not the grand vista. Most often Jean's work showcases a detail or a small part of a larger context.
