Artist Leanna Bowman

October Artist of the Month: Leanna Bowman
Leanna

Leanna was born in Utah, grew up in Las Vegas and moved to Sudden Valley in 1989.  Of all the places she has lived, she loves it here the best!!!  Leanna has two sons who are grown up with families of their own!

 

One day, Leanna saw a book about wire wrapping and she thought, I can do that!  A year ago, Leanna bought some wire and some tools and then heard about a new bead store in town, Beauty in the Bead Shop.  She took a class and now she is hooked!!!   

 

Leanna works at WWU, but every spare minute she has is spent in her studio.  Now you can come to our shop and see her jewelry that is for sale during October.  Leanna has a keen eye and eclectic choice of worked metal and beaded jewelry. It is very inspirational to see what she has accomplished in such a short period of time.

Elaine was born in England and had been living in Australia.  But now she now calls Bellingham home with her husband, Ken. In addition to her passion of painting with oils, she added a new one after a dear friend in England showed her how to create beaded jewelry over two years ago.

Susan Davis

June 2012 Artist Month – Susan Davis

Our first artist of the month is Susan Davis from Vancouver, WA. 

Not only is she a very talented artist, she is also my sister.  Her jewelry style is SteamChic.  Susan takes found objects like hardware, antique pieces, watch parts, fishing spinners, charms etc and re-purposes them into her unique jewelry. 

To be featured as the Artist of the Month, email a picture or pictures to Linda at beautyinthebeadshop@gmail.com.  If you are selected, you will be featured in our front window as the Artist of the Month.  We would like to add your picture and a short bio about you.  We can pick a selection of your pieces to display and show for you for that month.   

Having different featured artists each month is a great way for us all to see what can be done with beads.   It is not necessary that it be jewelry or only use beads from our shop.  Of course, we would love it if you used at least some of our beads, but it is not a requirement to be our Artist of the Month.
