Terry Palmer – Palmer Graphics Studio

  • A USL graduate with a degree in Graphic Design, Terry wrote his thesis on “Illustration” and gravitated to the ebb and flow of watercolor.  Residing in “Cajun Country” and “The Sportsman’s Paradise offers a multitude of visual opportunities  as is evidenced in many of his paintings. Terry prefers the painterly effect of watercolor with layered washes and brush strokes forming the color nuances in his work.


Simone Palmer -Palmer Graphics Studio

Paula McDowell –  Fire Dance Jewelry

  • A jewelry artist since 1998, Paula has developed skills in a variety of materials and methods including traditional metal-smithing and lapidary.  Paula's preferred material is metal clay, which allows her to develop wearable art that would otherwise be very difficult to achieve.


James McDowell –  Fire Dance Studio

  • A multi-faceted artist who works in many different art forms. He has produced blown and fused glass since 1999, encaustic monoprints since 2008, and hand-crafted journals since 2000.
