Fraker uses various techniques in acrylic on canvas. "My paintings are built in layers," she said. "Literally there are layers of color, texture, images and mixed media when it supports my concept. But also layers to the imagery. They can be viewed literally or symbolic of larger ideas."
Scott paints still life without boundaries in encaustic or acrylic mixed media. "I use objects to represent people and symbolize ideas. I always paint with the idea: Art makes you feel," she said.
Westbrook creates one of a kind, hand beaded, contemporary jewelry using mixed media and Swarovski crystals.
