After retiring from library work with the Beaverton School District, Fran signed up for watercolor lessons and “began to see the world in a different way.” After receiving a point-and-shoot camera as a gift, photography became just as important as painting. She has selected some of her vibrant photographs for this show. “I especially like to photograph subjects that bring a smile to the viewer or are bright with color.”

Marcia was fascinated with rocks and inspired by nature’s beauty as a child. She began creating one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry in her teens. In her new home state of Oregon she is inspired by “the mountains, rivers, ocean, forests, wildlife, and the peacefulness I find here.” She creates jewelry with Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, pearls, woods, metals, shells, Czech glass beads, vintage beads, chain, and “anything else I find that inspires me.”
