Mary has been taking wildlife photographs for her entire life, from her backyard on Blue Mountain, Pennsylvania, where she watches the annual hawk migration, to Baraboo, Wisconsin, where she saw her first whooping crane. Mary’s love for birds and nature photography has taken her all over the United States and beyond. She uses a Nikon D7000, usually with a 300mm lens, and prints of her photographs are also for sale.

A trip to Italy with old friends has warmed Mary's heart to the rhythms and beauty of the country. In 2014 you will start to see those experiences in her work.

Linda is a lifetime crafter who first discovered she had an eye for color coordination when selecting matting for framed art. She first put her crafting skills to use when she was introduced to the art of scrapbooking, and she has been making beautiful creations ever since. Linda enjoys singing and baking, and two of her favorite things in life are cheesecake and Paul McCartney.

We are still having fun!
