When limb separates from trunk, falls on the ground or is carried by water, it begins an evolution. Nature starts the decay process; wind earth, water, and fire alter it and wear away the outer layers. Insects carve intricate patterns in the wood; ocean creatures make it their home. This wood is the basis and inspiration for my sculptures.
margin: 7px;Each sculpture is composed of materials wild harvested from their environment of forest floor, seashore, or desert sands. Through the process of observing, caressing, and contemplating the found branches and roots, I begin a collaborative creative dance with them. Then the physical working of the wood begins, first with kiln curing, sanding, carving and assembling. Finally the sculpture emerges; and is finished with oils, stains or shellacs.https://barbaraodil.com/

My favorite place to be is in the garden or in my studio creating with flowers, The diversity in nature and in the garden feed both my curiosity and my spirit. It is my passion is to grow beautiful, seasonal, specialty cut-flowers following the rhythms of nature and to share that beauty and wonder with my community through my garden-style designs. I am very much following in my Mom’s footsteps, as she was a talented and skilled floral designer and was similarly passionate about the beauty of nature. I worked along side her for many holidays in her shop bustling to fill Valentine’s bouquets orders, and gift baskets. With her I learned to make Christmas wreaths and garlands, how to make a bow, and so many other things. This gave me a solid foundation in floristry skills, and working with flowers helps me to feel close to her, which I cherish. The gardening interest turned to a larger scale and became farming in 2018. This was all my own though, as I prefer working with fresh, chemical-free and locally grown flowers. It is a special relationship and a fascinating process to nurture a seed or a young plant through its life cycle to flowering. To then share the flowers and to see the wonder in the faces of my clients. It brings me so much joy!

As a naturalist, Peter Loose has an enormous love of animals which shows through his artwork. He paints many creatures, often from his personal collection of animals which include chicken, giant turtles, goats, dogs, and cats. His palette is full of happy colors painted over solid backgrounds with loads of dots bringing each character to life.
Loose arrived in Georgia when he began working for the state park service at the Athens Sandy Creek Nature Center. Shortly thereafter, he began to express himself through paint, depicting his personal interpretations of the natural world on found objects like canvas, roofing shingles, window screens, and discarded wooden boards. Loose and his wife, Sandy Loose-Schrantz, have also written and illustrated two children’s books: Bongo is a Happy Dog and Bongo Has Many Friends. His work can be found in the permanent collection of Savannah Georgia’s Telfair Art Museum and at the American Visionary Art Museum.
I create artwork from glass and metal using time worn methods incorporating stained and beveled glass. Most of my glass work is larger for residential and commercial applications. Homes, churches, and historic properties throughout Northeast Georgia feature my work. I also offer expert restoration of antique leaded glass and lamps. In 2023 I am available for commission work.
My subject matter varies from nature, to geometry, to more traditional themes when creating for a historic home. I like the special ability of glass to change the quality of light in a space depending on the time of day and the season.
