One of the most enlightening aspects of the Internet is the wealth of art work that we can view whenever the mood strikes us.  More often than not; however, we are drawn to the works of those artists with whom we have become most familiar over the years.  As such, there are numerous other artists, sometimes not so well known, whose creations may be overlooked.


     I am constantly looking for new art works, which somehow led me to "ArtisansOnline.com."  I was so moved by the artistry there, that I have designed a small gallery of just a part of the works that they currently offer. 


       Featured in this gallery are also stunning works by artists Evan Church and  Shan Kelly Cecelio, which I know you will find to be awe inspiring, and some beautiful photography from the African Imagery Gallery.  Don't forget to turn up your sound for some original African music!


       This site is dedicated to Demetria, my "other daughter" who makes a difference in all that she does!
