Local Artists and Photographers

I am surprised that I know so many talented artists and photographers because I did not think that I hung with an artsy crowd ’cause I’m not that cool. It turns out that the mom circle is a wide one, indeed, and I have met these guys through exercise classes, work, antiquing excursions, and one is even a relative! They are all incredibly talented and many have discovered their talent later in life.

By the way, they are listed by last name in alphabetical order. (That seems safe, right?!) If you are interested in seeing more, please click on their name.

p.s. The artists from Newton, MA are: Vani Chandra Sayeed, Sharon Schindler, Jerry Shereda and Suzi Wilder.

      It’s so funny that I am with you when you take your shot but I never would have seen it or noticed it. You have a special gift and I’m happy to tell the world! Plus you are very fun to shop with at Brimfield!!

    I am currently working with a lot of found paper and mixed media, and this collage work is now being shown at Candita Clayton Studio

    • To Jenny,
      How exciting! I can’t wait to see more of your work!!! I was so impressed that you sold a piece at the Museum of Fine Arts auction. I know that it is not easy to get a piece accepted.

  5. Suzi Wilder

    Beautiful Artists so nice of you to include me among them!!!

    • To Suzi,
      I love the story of how you fell in love with glass art when you visited Venice. It’s inspirational to know that you found your inner artist later in life. I love to give your gorgeous pieces as wedding presents. In fact, artist Jenny Brown has one of your pieces on display in her home.

  6. Fantastic to be featured with a this talanted group of artist’s!! thanks Mia.
