Joan McWilliams

Founder of my little studio and Island Arts Shared Space Gallery
Imagination...Individuality...Expression - these are what drive me to create - why I NEED to create.
My parents say that as a young child my imagination was vivid and my creativity, obvious. Mom tells of how she could see it in the way that I played. I would take parts from different "sets" or types of toys and play with them together in unique combinations.
Whereas the thought of being different makes a lot of people uncomfortable, striving to be different - to be an individual - is something I have done all my life ( just ask my little sister!). My art helps me feel unique.
Being quiet and shy for most of my life, the arts have been my primary means of expression, whether it has been through dance, music, theater, crafting, or making art. They have been a natural, comforting presence in my life and I cannot remember or imagine a time without them. And, through making art I am able to put some of the ideas tumbling around in my brain into a tangible form (making room for new ideas, of course!).
You may notice that, just as I played with toys as a child, my artwork is not consistently of a particular style, nor does it all fit into the same category of media or subject matter. I love the variety and experimentation that art affords.
Everything I make is with a special person in mind. Who that person is, though, often remains a mystery until he or she realizes the piece must have been made just for them!
It is my hope that the joy I feel in creating my pieces shines through to you - because that joy is meant to be shared!

Margaret Beville

I have lived on the eastern shore since 1970 and enjoy painting Chesapeake Wildlife along with Maryland lighthouses for the past 30 years. I find pleasure in exploring antique shops and travel to Pennsylvania to find old Shutters to restore and other various trash to treasure items to do my artwork on. The slates I paint on do have historical value, it's like restoring a bit of Maryland history back to its residents to enjoy.

Jen Fisher

Jen Fisher started her formal training in art 33 years ago, but as far back as she can remember she has always loved painting. She studied art in Denver Colorado and graduated from Millersville University with a bachelor of science in education with a concentration in art. After teaching art at various grade levels for 10 years she had an opportunity to create art while caring for her young daughter. She started with watercolor and acrylic. While cutting photographs for a family collage one day she thought it was time to take a risk and began experimenting with multi media and has been working in that vein ever since.
