Jennifer Kincaid

A native and resident of North Carolina, Jennifer has been a professional visual and ceramic artist for more than twenty years. She has twice been a recipient of the North Carolina Arts Council and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Arts And Science Council Artist Project Grant and is a past Affiliate Artist of the McColl Center for Visual Arts. Her exhibits include the American Craft Council Shows, the SECCA, Blue Spiral Gallery and many other juried and invitational exhibits. Her work is in public and many private and corporate collections. Jennifer’s art is included in Lark Books’ 500 Plates and Chargers.

My current clay art includes writings and drawings in hand built bowls, wall tiles and sculptures. Starting as a painter, I began working in clay and found satisfaction working in sculptural forms and layered surfaces. I work with clay, canvas, and paper. Concepts include spontaneous musings in clay, the movement of time symbolized by life animation, and the psychological intrigue of forms and shadows.


Joseph A. Pearson

Inspired by the subject matter that unites our humanity, I am interested in telling the story of the “Everyman,” painting people as portraits and figures in oil, charcoal, and pastel pencil. The source of my inspiration derives from numerous directions, including scenes from the streets, issues in the news, and subject matter I have read about regarding current social trends. My present body of work addresses the universal use of social media in public and private settings. My work embraces the concept of social realism by drawing attention to everyday conditions.


Christie Calaycay

Pink Dog Creative
344 Depot St. Suite 100 in Studio A
Asheville, NC 28801

Christie’s work is inspired by the graceful quality of nature paying close attention to the patterns and structures it contains. These aspects combined with clean lines, texture and tone framed in a modern simplicity create intricate yet subtle designs. All pieces are entirely by hand, from first sketch through final craftsmanship. Various metals are combined in order to emphasize organic qualities and natural appearance. In a sense my jewelry is meant to ground and connect the wearer to nature and the environment.

Custom designs are available. Christie will be in Studio A, 344 Depot, Suite 100 and will be open Monday – Saturday, 10A – 4P and by appointment.


Leene Hermann

Seven years ago a good friend who is a mosaic artist asked if I’d like to try doing mosaics with her. I found that I had a flair for it and fell in love. I’ve done several community projects since then and have been in a number of shows in Michigan. My passion for mosaics led me into thrift shops and second-hand stores looking for new things to mosaic. I especially love doing mannequins and 3 dimensional work. After living in the same house in Michigan for 35 years, I discovered the magic of Asheville in 2015 and this is now my permanent home.

Stephen St. Claire 


I was born and raised in the northern suburbs of Los Angeles, California, and graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. I have worked with oil paint since I was a child and as an adult have continued exploring different facets of art and design.

I grew up painting mostly landscapes and still life, but somewhere around 2001, I began painting on metallic leaf, and a new painting genre was born. Since the early days, I have done a lot of experimentation, discovering what the medium will and will not do (and how to make it do what I want it to do), and my work has morphed and evolved. What began as strictly abstract work on a flat substrate gradually became more “scenic” and now I do mostly full-blown reflective abstracts and landscapes, sculpting the composition onto the canvas with several layers of modeling compound and gesso, then covering the entire surface with Italian aluminum leaf.

I call my technique Dialuminism (”light passing through”) because light reflects off the metal background layer, passes through the layers of paint and then is refracted by the layers of solar resistant resin (which acts as a clear lens, fused to the surface of the painting). The result is a painting that is basically back-lit, which creates very intense color and contrast. Light plays off some areas and casts shadows beneath others, creating a dimensional painting that changes in appearance depending upon where the viewer is standing in relation to the light source.

Deanna Chilian

Originally from New Jersey, Deanna Chilian arrived in Asheville in 2012 after living in Colorado for fifteen years. While her artistic promise was recognized in her youth and nurtured in adulthood through mentorship, she moved through careers in law, land conservation and teaching movement, collecting life experiences which inform her work as a professional artist. Inspired by nature, human movement, great artists like O’Keeffe, Frankenthaler, Mitchell and Kandinsky, and her love for the works of Brian Rutenberg and Wolf Kahn, Deanna takes us on a journey of the spirit and intellect using abstract expressionism as the vehicle.

Julie Miles

Loving to tell stories in many ways, Julie’s work holds a wide range: from a hopeful revival of the gems to be garnered from the rural way of life, to abstract pieces that inspire dialogue about our inter-relatedness, to quiet stories of the wind.


Lucy Cobos

I relocated to Asheville with my husband from Boston, MA where I worked as a professional commercial photographer for over 35 years. Among a diverse clientele in different industries, I also managed the first photography department at the NBC affiliate in Boston for ten of those years. The timing was right for me to explore other mediums of expression with our move to Asheville. I’m inspired by so much creativity I see around me, community support for artists and the resources Asheville has to offer. I often use my photography as a reference for encaustics, pastels and cold wax. Experimental or with purpose, my art is an extension of who I am and how I respond to my own imagination or the environment I find myself in.
Hours by appointment


May Rhea

Everything in my life is connected to and influenced by my love of nature.  I grew up on a farm in South Carolina and spent much of my time as a child with my grandmother who enjoyed painting plein air.  The combination of these influences created a necessity for me to lead a life that was always in some way connected to nature and allowed me to stay inspired by the “art” we see daily in our surroundings.

I reside in Fairview, NC, with my husband, dogs and cats. When I am not painting, I enjoy filling my days gardening and hiking. In addition, my volunteer work at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue in Asheville is a source of great personal fulfillment.


Noël Yovovich

A very recent transplant to the gorgeous mountains of WNC from Evanston, Illinois, I was born and raised in rural Florida. For many years, I have been creating works with mountain imagery and calling them Imaginary Landscapes—places I wished for and dreamed about that were not available to me in the “here and now.” At last, living the dream!

Much of the magic of my jewelry pieces comes from the exploration of the amazing properties of titanium, a metal which can be colored with the use of heat and/or voltage. The minutely detailed imagery I create in this unique material shifts in appearance from different angles, giving it a sense of life and vitality that cannot be captured fully in a photograph. I believe that every experience in my life makes its way into my work, and I can hardly wait to see what comes in this newest chapter!
