2018 Artist Profiles #4

Gracie’s Earrings – Shareen Elsenbeck



“I create earrings by flame torching copper, sometimes adding mixed metal designs using  brass and  silver.  I have recently also been making “moon phase” hanging sculptures out of the same metals.”



Nancy Kieffer Photography


A Central New York Photographer connected to landscapes and children.


Made by Joy – Lori McCullough


“Hi! I am Lori Zonneville McCullough … I began designing and creating jewelry in 2009 as a hobby. Created Creations by Cloe in 2015 and began selling at craft shows and fairs. In late 2017, I “itched” to get my hands back into paint and chalk and dirt and glass … so Made by Joy became. I do all mixed media art with as much organic material as possible. Home decor prim art, table coasters/plaques/custom wall hangings such as family trees, wall art and still craft and design jewelry. Single, living in Syracuse the past 9 years after living in Florida for 30+ years … yeah, it’s snowing out. I miss my tan. LOVE working the events”

Amy’s Creative Designs – Amy Bhagalia




“I am a wife and mother of 2 young women. I crochet as a stress relief, so I make a LOT of stuff!”


Kathleen’s Quilt Conner – Kathleen Hart-Zavoli


“I’ve been creating quilts since my teens. When in college I lived near a quilt shopbut had limited funs. The propieter would allow me to sketch the patterns I liked so I could purchase the fabric. I just began selling quilts oin 2016. The quilts range from table runners to to wallhangings and lap robes.”


Steve Friedman Photography 





“Photography has been a passion of mine since childhood. As I have grown as an artist it has taken on a larger role for me. Artists who capture scale and evoke emotions with their imagery are what inspire me. I try to convey a living moment in a still image, to share my emotions and impressions with my viewer. Primarily I have always been a landscape photographer, although recently I have ventured out to portraiture and real estate. I find that each style has its own set of challenges which is what drives me to be the best photographer I can be.”
