Patty Duggan and her dog Butch

Patty and her buddy Butch

PATTY DUGGAN (seen here with her buddy Butch) decorates Ashland, Oregon, with her glorious soft sculpture. I am proud to say that I have a Patty Duggan original hanging in my living room, and I am so pleased to bring her art to you here.

Patty believes the medium of fabric lends softness, texture and dimension to a depiction of the human body. She uses the technique of negative applique so that seams don’t show. You will see all types of fabric from silks to upholstery materials in her pieces, each contributing to the effects she desires.

Contact Patty at “pattyduggan47 **at**gmail**dot**com”.

Judith Shaw painting her Tree of Life

Judith Shaw working on her Tree of Life piece

JUDITH SHAW captures the feminine mystique from universal mythology and from contemporary influences, like Jackson Pollack and Van Gogh. The mysteries of New Orleans, Mexico, San Francisco and Lesbos radiate throughout her work, with light born Goddesses reaching out from her canvas.

Set your soul free to follow the lines and colors in Judith’s works — you will come away inspired and refreshed.

Judith presently works in New Mexico, but her astonishingly beautiful works are available at Judith Shaw Art.

Lo Smucker's work titled Woman of Green

Lo Smucker’s self portrait, a creation of found objects

LO SMUCKER is an eclectic, fun and funny artist in Ashland, Oregon. Her studio overflows with myriad objects, from acrylics/oils to drawers full of yards and yards of fabric, to wood to paper to found materials of all kinds. She is one of the few artists you may find walking along a deserted street, looking for rusted metal, one of her favorite objects d’art.

Lo turns all of these treasures into art forms that we all can relish. Her collages might incorporate dried plants on top of oil paintings, buttons and inks, and oh so many other combinations.

She even captures mystical moments in her oriental brush paintings.

I was so impressed too with the unique framing and backgrounds that Lo incorporates into each piece. Her pieces are truly one of a kind!

You can reach Lo at “lo**at**q**dot**com”.
