Barb Howard

 

I was born and raised in Alaska, moved to the Valley in 1978 where my husband and I raised two sons while exploring, adventuring and appreciating the wonderfulness here.

 

My first artistic influence was my mom; she was not artistic, yet had a deep appreciation of individual skills and talents.  She encouraged and enabled me to delve into the arts at an early age in multiple mediums. I also found the works of indigenous peoples, classical artists, Georgia O’Keefe....well, most all art inspired and continues to inspire me.

 

The mediums I play with include pencils; a favorite for creating the annual Christmas cards I send, acrylics, watercolor and fiber; felting and spinning are fun too.

 

Where the fascinating world of art will take me next will be a delightful surprise.

Brinley Furrer

I'm a 17 year old who has been surrounded by art my whole life. Coming from a large family, I find most of my inspiration in tranquil and quiet moments of living things.

 

My preferred mediums are acrylic paints and graphite, though I would love to get to explore with oil paints at some point. 

Carley Edwards

Carley Edwards is a Pediatric MA and Vaccine Coordinator by day, yet an avid painter by night. She is most enamored by Alaska’s oceans, rivers, and what lies within them. 

Historically, she studied International Baccalaureate Arts programs and even younger programs as a child. She founded Star Valley High School’s Art Club that went on to create art for the entire high school. 

Carley specializes in large salmon paintings and someday hopes to conquer a whale. 

Emily Gelino-Bequette

Emily Gelino-Bequette, a lifelong Alaskan, became a professional artist in 2016 after graduating from the University of Alaska with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art. She sells her work under the studio name Guilded Dragonfly in several shops in the valley, events such as Friday Fling, and online. Emily works in several media including functional pottery and hand-built clay sculpture, oil painting, drawing, and jewelry. Her art is inspired by nature, with strong light and design elements. A big part of her artistry is about exploring the relationship between people and art. Her dream is to one day have a studio/gallery where she can share working space and provide opportunities for emerging artists while creating a wholesome community of creative people and art lovers.

Marcelle Foxley Roemmich

Marcelle Foxley Roemmich grew up in Palmer, Alaska and has always had a love for the ocean. As a child, she would travel to Southeast Alaska every summer where she would spend her days on the ocean, swimming in the water, pulling up crab pots, exploring little islands from a skiff, and discovering all the amazing creatures living in the tide pools. Summers on Admiralty Island were influential on her well-being as well as her art. As she grew up, her love for the water also developed and she landed her first job as a captain in 2014.

Her grandfather, a commercial fisherman, left her a large stack of nautical charts. What better to do with lovely charts then to paint on them?! She fell in love with exploring many techniques representing different marine wildlife and other land mammals on charts, topo maps, and aeronautical charts. Marcelle now has a large collection of charts and topo maps from all over Alaska. Typically she paints animals, boats or planes geographically specific to the charts.

She now resides in the quirky little town of Whittier Alaska where she drives the M/V Ptarmigan on Portage Lake for Portage Glacier Cruises during the summer. In the winter months she Lives in Seward, Alaska where she spends her time painting.

She went to Montana State University, where she received a B.A. in Art Education. She takes commissioned work anytime of the year, but usually won’t start painting until her down months in the winter. If you would like to order more prints or commission a specific piece, contact her at marcelleroemmich@gmail.com

I’m Nicole Midgett from Ketchikan, Alaska.

Rachael Haynes

My name is Rachael Haynes, I am 37 years old and a born and raised Alaskan. I am married and we have a 7 year old son. I have been an esthetician and makeup artist since 2014.

I guess I've always been pretty artistic. I have always loved to dance, write, and I have been playing with makeup since I was a kid. I was inspired to follow my dream to be a makeup artist professionally after I became a mom. I had thought, "How can I teach my son to follow his dreams, if I am not brave enough to follow my own?" And so, I did. I have loved it ever since!

My job no longer feels like a job.

But then COVID hit, and I couldn't work. I had plenty to keep me busy, but I was starving for another creative outlet. It started with walking out on the river and collecting driftwood and stones with my family, and my mother in law had inspired me to make mobiles with them. And then I found videos about pour art and was extremely intrigued, but didn't know where to start. Luckily, I had a friend that already knew how, and she taught me. I loved how abstract it was and you almost can't mess it up, (lol).

From there I was inspired to create other things such as wood burned signs and beaded sun catchers. I love that I was inspired by loved ones and that this is something that I can do with them, but also something that is an escape for me. I've learned a lot in such a short amount of time, but I still have far to go. Art is always
