Artist Profiles

Artist Profile: George Ferreira

I reside in Berkley, Massachusetts with my wife, 3 children and Daisy, our cocker spaniel. I have been working in the powder mediums of charcoal & graphite since 2004. Being a self taught artist, I am constantly experimenting with the application of the charcoal/graphite powder mediums with the tools I use. I have always been drawn to the look and feel of black and white artwork. I consider my works more paintings than drawings. Although traditionally, when you think of charcoal & graphite you don't think painting, but as for my technique, drawing is only a small part of the finished work.
Since 2005, my work has been exhibited locally in both juried and non-juried art shows & festivals.

Artist Profile: Lisa A. Paquette

Lisa A. Paquette is a photographer and owner of Wild Sage Studios, located at Dighton Rock Plaza in Dighton, Ma. She enjoys photographing children, families, and pets with their people . For relaxation, Lisa is drawn to nature and wildlife photography, a passion she has had for over 20 years.

Lisa has worked in the traditional film medium for many years but in 2005 transitioned to digital photography and digital darkroom techniques. She enjoys the versatility and freedom from the constraints of film that digital photography provides. She has incorporated it exclusively in her work at the studio.

I have always been captivated and inspired by how changing light can give an ordinary scene new perspective. I enjoy creating new ways of looking at ordinary objects in nature and also enjoy helping people shine in photographs by depicting their personality, their relationships, and ultimately their memories.

Artist Profile: Kate Sullivan

Kate Sullivan's art reflects a lifetime of varying musical and artistic experience -- from classical piano to folk guitar, from jazz combos to gospel choirs, from poetry to theater to painting. Her setting of Pinocchio for string quartet, hammer, chisel and musical saw is being performed in the Providence area by the Providence String Quartet as a part of the Community MusicWorks strings program for inner city youth.

An accomplished painter, Sullivan always keeps an eye on the visual, creating theater or film pieces to accompany her music. In addition, her love of the spoken word is always evident, often with narration in both English and foreign language.

Her work with children centers around the power and magic of stories. She is always encouraging children to discover their own rich well of creativity. All they have to do is give it a try. They'll surprise themselves!
