Jaye Crist

Expression though photographs, CERAMICS, painting, drawing, writing and hand crafted art can be a very personal, yet a shared gift that provokes emotion.

The expression and creation shared here is the work of family. Images created and captured individually or together, but all from the shared spirit, passion and artistic mindset that is within us. The viewer or reader absorbs the work and in that way is influenced in some way by it.

Keisha Finnie

Based in Lancaster, PA (1992) my inspiration arises from simply living life and being a woman of color. My art is born out of a combination of my love for nature, vibrant color, and the female form. I want my art to reflect myself and what i like while showing people my perspective of the world.
