Featured Artist: Angela Faye
Angela Faye moved to Franklin, Tennessee in 2008 after spending time on her sister’s farm in Northern Missouri. While on the farm she received a peaceful reprieve from her career in advertising in her hometown of Memphis and was inspired to slow down and see the beauty all around her. Angela began taking random photos of chickens, goats, cows and “farm and country” using a simple point-and-shoot camera that her father had given her.
After living the simple life she was ready for a change. Angela started going through her collection of photos and was inspired to do something with them, receiving encouragement from just about everyone who saw them. She began to make prints of her photos and framed them in barn wood, along with magnets and cards with her images.

Featured Artist: Lisa Porter
I paint with acrylic paints on gallery wrapped canvas. Most paintings are abstract but some are mixed abstract with realism bending within. I paint thick with brushes, sticks and my fingers to get the desired effect.
I was inspired by Van Gogh, Wayne Thiebaud, & Jim Dine in the 1980’s but I have evolved beyond their inspiration in my mind’s eye.
Nature is my main visual stimulus. I paint how I feel about being in it, affected by organic movement and the resonance of each space. My childhood was spent on the Iowa, where I developed a deep connection gazing in the sky watching the clouds roll by allowing my imagination to its openness and freedom – and this is what I paint. Imagining birds eye view looking back, filled me with wonder and awe. My work is intrinsically involved with depicting a view, and how I feel when absorbed by tangles of the world around us.

January – February
I am a graduate of O’More College of Design. It was the love of fashion & color that attracted me there and majored in Fashion Design & Merchandising. Along with my fashion design interest and creative skills in eveningwear, was born my curiosity of watercolor paint & the beauty of the medium. My works are bold cheery brightness’s bordering on impressionistic, and at times, possibly abstract in nature. In some occasions I may use a mixed medium to when creating a particular look. In most cases, currently the pieces you will see from me are flowers possibly some architecture and maybe a car or two.
