Sally Dennison
Ten years ago, upon moving to Sandpoint, Idaho, Ms. Dennison
began combining recycled pieces of nature and layers of paint
into 3-D whimsical treasures. She then embarked on an incredible
journey and joined the Artists' Studio Tour. Starting with
knitted puppets, she later moved to watercolor and mixed media
and this year, she has been working in acrylics with which she
has been able to soar into the world of colors and enjoy her
art immensely. Limited edition prints of Sally's recent work
available through dennisonart16@gmail.com

Carol De Marninis
Our May featured artist, Carol De Marinis is a portrait and landscape painter working in Taos, New Mexico.
A native of Cleveland, Ohio and long-time resident of Los Angeles, the artist found a new habitat following the 1994 Northridge earthquake.

To tell it in her own words, "A synchronistic and propinquitous commission fell like manna from heaven just when I was being transferred to Manhattan and I was torn with temptation. Be dropped in the center of the country's culture? Yes. But the new commission changed all that and allowed for a heart decision. I opted for less city, not more. I could trade the freeways, now crumbling and shorn off, along with their background of billboards, for dirt roads through Ponderosa forests and uninterrupted views that reach right into eternity. The beloved ocean was swapped for clouds of every shape and color I could not have imagined."

Carol's paintings, in watercolor, oil and pastel are in a natural handwriting one Cleveland journalist termed "interpretive realism." Sculpture is a second love which she is currently using to build ceramic polar bears.
