Paul and I are full time artists/craftspeople living and working in our studio in 'downtown' Bethany. We came to Bethany in Jan. 1977 and have been sharing our studio and gallery for over 36 years.
We design and build brass & copper fountains, garden art, decorated gourds, leather sculpture, wall art and masks, as well as belts, purses and small gift items like key rings, bookmarks and hair barrettes.
We have a SECRET GARDEN beside our studio where we have 10 water features with our fountains on display. From Mother's Day to the end of September you can visit our studio and Secret Garden and see lots of frogs, fish flowers and fountains.
On Mother's Day weekend annually we are part of the ROLLING HILLS STUDIO TOUR which centres around the towns of Cavan, Bethany, Pontypool. Come out to see us. www.RollingHillsStudioTour.com
Every November we have our annual CHRISTMAS ARTS & CRAFTS SHOW with work from many local artists for sale; such as, carved horses by Laura Boyle, Art Photography by Walter & Peggy Cracknell, soapstone sculpture by Sandy Cline, handthrown pottery by Ed Longueville, Green Heron Pottery and copper jewellery by Lucya Almeida, The Tima Collection.
In 2008 we created the 'TREE OF HONOUR' in the Evinrude Centre commemorating over 40 years of the volunteers and donors of the LIFTLOCK HOCKEY TOURNAMENT. You can see the copper and leather tree on display in the lobby before you go into the ice rinks.
For the OMEMEE MEDICAL CENTRE we designed and built the 'GIVING LIFE TREE' with 3 leather birch trees covered in brass, copper and stainless steel 'birch' leaves with the donors names on them.
On the staircase of the MILLBROOK MEDICAL CENTRE you will find the very large DONOR WALL with 500 places for donor names on leaves of brass, copper and stainless steel.
Paul designed and built an 18' copper MAPLE TREE for the lobby of the BEST WESTERN INN, COBOURG in 2009. There are over 800 copper Maple leaves on it. He built it out of steel that he welded together in sections. Those sections were bolted to the cement wall in the lobby where anyone can go and see it. The tree is very popular with wedding parties every weekend.
