Richard Altenhofen

[nggallery id=27]
I consider myself a functional artist. My work is intended to be used rather than hang on a wall. Thus, the overall design of my work is dictated by its intended use. But the individual elements of the design are inspired by natural forms. I like to let the materials speak for themselves.

Geri Dunn

Geri Dunn knew from an early age that her passion was art. Geri’s interest in the West manifested itself through childhood drawings, and impressions gathered while growing up in a small town, rich with ranching history. A self-confessed dreamer, Geri strives to go beyond just the basic techniques of drawing, trying to convey the mood and feeling of the subject in all her drawings. Geri enjoys creating each new piece of graphite artwork, and continues to excel in honing her skills as an artist.
