Leslie Edwards Humez:
Leslie is a suburban Cleveland surrealist who can't resist the temptation to give life to metaphor and word play through art. Her whimsical pieces are created with a porcelain/ cellulose based clay that air-dries flinty hard and accepts acrylic paint. The brilliantly colorful finished works are generally mistaken for ceramics, but unlike fired clayware, they're as durable as wood. Click here for more information.
Ted creates art using "the things that people see and use everyday" as his inspiration. His ideas involving common everyday scenes or objects spring from his extensive foreign and domestic travels as well as glimpses of New York City. Ted continuously strives to accomplish the goal of creating something that is entertaining and thought provoking for other people to look at and enjoy. Making art is his means of self-expression and self-fulfillment. Click here for more information.

Only after an effort has been put into developing this relationship can meaningful images be captured on a consistent basis. For more information, click here.
