Miriam Daniel, Visual Artist & Educator
Artist Statement: I am an intuitive artist. This means I look with my eyes and my heart, and in tandem, they lead my hands to create. My work has often been described as “just so happy.” I find great joy and peace in creating. I am most inspired by nature and life around me. I am often found working in acrylics on canvas, but I also enjoy many other media–watercolor, paper making and book arts to name a few. You might also find me at ACoT teaching yoga, writing for BraveTeachers.com, or leading creative workshops. Having a public studio and joining a community of artists is a new adventure for me that has required lots of courage, therefore I call this Brave Art. I spent the past 18 years as a teacher and literacy advocate in schools in Ohio, Alaska, and Washington. Iʼm looking forward to where this path leads. You can follow my art and life adventures or purchase art by connecting with my blog: Brave Art by Miriam Daniel at www.MimDaniel.blogspot.com.

Artist Statement: My goal is to show you what you might not see. As a local artist my subjects are what you might pass on a daily basis but I try to capture it a new light. Fun facts: I’m a born & raised Barbertonian. I love otters and cats. I met my husband playing d&d (and he continues to love me despite me constantly putting my cold hands & feet on him).

A collaboration of Mixed Media, art, jewelry, and dreams.

Ron White, Visual Artist & Sculptor
Artist Statement: As a visual artist working on paper, in clay, through ice, I have considered my use of the human figure to be post modernist documents of moments in time. I feel as though the figures mark an event or personal space. The human form is the connection to any experience. The figure is paramount in the work that I create. Expounding upon life experiences, dreams and illustrations, I sculpt and render the figure with interest towards but not limited to the classic form. Techniques used in the art making process are usually both two and three dimensional. It is a derivative of exploration in light and line creating tone and plane. I work in many medium creating work for my self expression and by commission in jewelry, clay, drawing, painting and in ice. I have only begun a life long obsession with art media. The purposeful control of the figure in the medium is respected in the histories of the oldest cultures. A complex blend of pose, gesture, foreshortening created using surface treatments of cross hatch, ink wash, and scgraffito presents an artist with an abundance of opportunity for self expression. Since the first time man put his mark in the mud, the earth and its populous has changed, but his need to communicate through his line is still pertinent and necessary.
