Art by Sara Edge

Each wearable art piece is hand-carved in metal (brass, copper, sterling silver), detail etched and hand-painted. I find my passion working with metal, wood
 and glass, which are tied to the earth and composed of natural elements. I specialize in small sculpture art and wearable art, as well as woodworking and paintings. My work reflects a love of ocean life, nature and fantasy. I strongly advocate for protecting the environment and have studied (professionally) ocean health for over 15 years. I am currently based in Oakland, CA and my work has been featured at several galleries and studios across California. I am also 100% self-taught in my art work. 
 TRUE FACT:
 Although I have been diving to over 2800 feet in a submarine… Sadly, I have yet to meet the Kraken or Cthulhu.

The Fairytale Sculptures of Scott Radke

His work and designs have made appearances in such films as Walt Disney’s Academy award winning Alice in Wonderland Directed by Tim Burton. Radke’s sculptures stem from subconscious imagery. He uses mixed media in his puppet-like sculptures and explores a fairy-tale like mixture of animal human hybrids. His work is highly influenced by nature.

The Art of Audrey Kawasaki

Audrey Kawasaki is an Los Angeles, California based artist whose works are contradictions within themselves. Her pieces are both innocent and erotic; attractive yet disturbing. Audrey’s precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. Her sharp graphic imagery is combined with the natural grain of the wood panels she paints on, bringing an unexpected warmth to enigmatic subject matter.

The figures she paints are seductive and contain an air of melancholy. They exist in their own sensually esoteric realm, yet at the same time present a sense of accessibility that draws the observer to them. These mysterious young women captivate with the direct stare of seductive eyes.

Poetic Acrylic Paintings by Duy Huynh

Vietnamese born artist Duy Huynh creates poetic acrylic paintings inspired by stories drawn from ancient folklore, comic books, film, and music. He moved to the United States in the early 80s and took refuge in art as he struggled with language barriers and his new environment. Themes of cultural and geographical displacement frequently appear in Huynh’s. His attempts to connect fluid patterns in nature with that of human designs creates a juxtaposition of movement and stillness. You can see more of his original works in his archives.
