Karen Apostolico

Where do I begin to tell about my art journey. I could go way back to when my grandfather (an architect) gave me pencils and paper and told me to go draw. I don’t know whether that was to encourage my talent or to keep me away from his blueprints. It was the beginning of my love all things creative.

Numerous classes and workshops over the years helped me find a medium and style that worked for me. My first class was an oil painting class in high school, a drawing class at the University of Delaware, and oil classes at the Center for Creative Arts (in the Ed Loper style). I switched to acylics as I liked the fast drying properties and its somewhat forgiving nature. I loved watercolors  (other people’s, not mine) so I took a couple of watercolor classes which were helpful, but continued to paint mainly with acrylics.
In 2008, I joined the Cape Artists in Lewes, one of the first people there who was not a water colorist.  I had studio space in Rehoboth in Paintiques Gallery where I painted and exhibited. We moved back to New Castle County in 2013 to be closer to kids and grandkids. I continued to show some of my work in Sussex County the at the Brush Factory in Lewes and also hung some pieces in The Mercantile in Milton.
We loved living closer to family but we found our hearts were wed to Sussex County and its mix of natural beauty — beaches, marshes, farmland and its active art community. We have recently moved back to Sussex and are enjoying the people and the pace!

Susan Caudell

I was born and raised in the town of Milton, Delaware. As a child, I was
exposed to business and art through my grandparents, George and
Siegfried and my father, George Siegfried Jr. owners of Siegfried Hosiery
Mill. An instilled appreciation for the arts and encouragement led me to
follow my passion to work as an artist. I attended school in Georgia
where I met my husband, John Caudell.

My focus for 30 years has been in the area of artwork on furniture.
I worked as lead artist for Habersham Plantation, Simply Southern and
Eddy West Furniture. When my children, Bret and Nicole,
finished college, I looked for an opportunity to establish myself
as a fine artist.

I have always appreciated the beauty of the lower Delaware area
and expressing this through my artwork is a perfect way to share
my talent with others. I work mostly in acyrlics but enjoy oil and
watercolor too. Even though I live in Georgia, I love that I can stay
connected through the Milton Art Guild.

Barbara Coffin

Growing up in Washington, D.C, I had many opportunities to explore the
Smithsonian galleries, the National Zoo, the Arboretum and Rock Creek Park.
That is where a love of nature and my inspiration for art making began.

I studied art at the Corcoran Gallery and won the Washington Post Student
Art Award.  I graduated from the University of Maryland and taught art
for 32 years in Maryland schools. Twice I was awarded the MAEA Outstanding
Art Educator Award.
Since moving to Delaware, I joined a wonderful group of master wood
carvers; the Mispillion River Carvers. I love painting but wood is a fun
medium for me…a new way to express my art.

I live in Milton with my husband Denny Coffin, a photographer who shares
my love of birds, animals, and Delmarva landscapes.

Kathy Connell

I always wanted to try to paint. I thought you had to have great drawing
skills. In the schools that I attended there were no art classes. So about 3
years ago I took a water color class and now have tried some acrylics.
I am now retired and in the fall am planning to begin some classes that
will help me improve and grow in my painting. I find it very relaxing.

Kathy Fessenbecker

My artistic journey began over 30 years ago when my mother-in-law
sparked my interest with some lessons in porcelain painting. After a few
years, water color took center stage. Next it was on to color pencils, oil
painting, acrylic  and collage. My art education has been through private
classes and workshops. There are always new materials and methods for
artists to use to express themselves. The creative urge continues to push us
along to keep creating and stretching. I currently love working with
mixed media and creating a work with a loose look often inspired by nature.
My husband and I have recently moved to the Lewes area.  I'm enjoying
getting involved in the local art scene. I teach private painting parties
and am a member of Milton Arts Guild and Rehoboth Beach Art League.

Nettie Green

I tell people, "I am a retired teacher who has gone to pot."  Actually I was interested in making pottery as a young child when I made fragrant mud pies with my great aunt's discarded spices and later noticed that I could make air dried pots out of wet clay left behind at a building site.  Coming from the Appalachian mountains, I was inspired with what I observed potters making.  So now that I have the time to play, I've learned much from colleagues at Rehoboth Art League and in other workshops.  I've taught several children's classes.  Most of my whimsical, beautiful and practical pottery is done in my garage.  The forest, the wetlands, and the ocean give me ideas.  Making pots is timeless joy for me.

Jason Janjanin

I am an artist who loves to paint landscapes and still life. My medium is
acrylic. I give all my credit to God, my Lord and Savior, because He is the
one who gave me this talent. All I want to do is give the glory to Him.
When people buy my paintings I pray that they see how beautiful this world
can be- no pollution, no trash on the streets, just a world that God had
in mind when He created it. Because without God we are dead, but being
in Him we are alive in His Glory.

 Isabel Pizzolato

I ventured into watercolor after retiring to Delaware in 2007.  
In New Jersey, I had spent many hours learning tole painting and
mastering stroke work, thinking I would like to teach this art form.  
I still enjoy this form of painting and maintain my membership with the
Delmarva Decorative Artisits.  

My first venture into watercolor was through the Rehoboth Art League.
When I was introduced to watercolor I became "hooked" on the
transparency of watercolor and fascinated by the way the colors react
to each other and flow over the surface of the paper.  
I am now proud to say I have been accepted into several juried shows
and have won numerous awards.  I am committed to supporting the
local art scene through volunteerism and by participating
in local exhibits.

watercolors, acrylics, and collages all include vivid hues. 
I am of two minds - realism is challenging and wonderful, but I get lost
in abstracts, they take me to another place and time,” Rita remarks.

Angela Richman

Last summer, sitting on the beach at Gordon's Pond, I was blown away by the beauty of it, so I took a photo and with some coloring pencils did my first drawing. I really enjoyed it and have been drawing ever since.
My background is in fashion, I went to the London College of Fashion and have a Diploma in Art and Design. I worked in the fashion industry as a designer and pattern cutter for mass markets. I then had my own business creating hand made wedding and evening dresses until I moved to the USA in 1995 with my husband.
My style isn't conventional, more like naive art. Being a trained fashion designer is very different to painting pictures!

Andy Rollman

Trained as an architect, I have been involved in the arts all of my life.  Sketching was always an integral part of my 30 year career in Washington, DC where I focused on commercial architectural design.  I’ve now retired to Broadkill Beach with my husband Andrew and I’m able to spend more time sketching.  I’ve used watercolor in some of my sketches and I look forward to evolving into other mediums.

Cynthia Schmidt

I’ve been a resident of Delaware and the Mid Atlantic area since my teens. Art in many different mediums has always been a strong interest of mine, and I like to dabble in several – variety is the spice of life! I started concentrating on stained glass and mosaic in the early 90s, and branched out to include fused and kiln-worked glass during the past decade.
I enjoy my job as a Medical Laboratory Technician at Beebe Healthcare’s main campus in Lewes, but do look forward to the time when retirement will enable me to spend more hours in my home studio. I’ve completed several originally designed commission pieces that were met with glowing reviews and feel I’ve taken the leap from hobbyist to artist.

Cathy Serwalt

My love for art started as a kid.  But it’s only been in recent years that I’ve been able to really delve into the many facets of painting.  I am basically self taught, with the help of workshops, books and DVDs.  I started painting in oils many years ago when my children were young.  There was a long "no art" time while I was raising kids and working full time.  My husband, Jerry (my framer), and I moved to Delaware from South Jersey in 2004, just about the time Mispillion Art League was starting.  I joined the group in 2008, retired from my job at Delaware Veterans Home in 2010 and quickly became a member of their Board and Chairman of the Exhibits Committee for about 4 yrs.  

The challenge of painting in watercolor grabbed me about 10 years ago and I’ve enjoyed learning all the wonderful and unique techniques associated with that medium.  But, a few years ago, I joined the Plein Air Painters of the Mid Atlantic, and found that oils work best for me while painting outdoors.   Now I switch back and forth between oil and watercolor, enjoying the many differences in the two mediums.  There is so much to learn when it comes to art, I know I will never stop learning and will never be bored. 

My work is owned by collectors in Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Connecticut, California and Delaware.

I belong to the Mispillion Art League, The Painting Divas, Milton Art Guild and Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic.

Donna Sheppard

I have always loved watercolor for their transparency and luminosity.  Six years ago I took my first class and have truly enjoyed a creative journey exploring the many aspects of watercolor.  I have taken workshops with renowned artists and have been fortunate to become close friends with local artists who have inspired and encouraged me.

I find watercolor holds many mysteries and surprises whenever I apply paint to paper.  It’s such a joy to discover new techniques that lead to fun and exciting outcomes.

Currently I’m painting less detail in a more loose atmospheric technique.  By using a lot of water and mixing colors on the paper I’ve discovered incredible color combinations and effects.  My goal is to capture the essence of my subject letting the viewer interpret and finish the story I created.  Since painting I’ve become more appreciative of the world around me especially sunsets, flowers and trees.

My paintings have been displayed at the Biggs Museum in Dover, Rehoboth Art League and local shows including Nassau Vineyard, The Milton Art Guild. I'm also Gallery Manager at MAG.

Wes Stack

Wes Stack is a potter and ceramic sculptor who works from his studio on Cave Neck Rd. near Milton. He produces both functional stoneware as well as abstract sculpture. All of his work expresses his interest in form, surface and light. His primary method of production is using the pottery wheel to create forms, although this is supplemented with other “making” methods. Much of the appearance of his finished work results from his use of custom made glazes, textured finishes and attention to form.

He delights in pursuing experiments in extending forming techniques and surface decoration, all of which involve risk and chance and change. His goals are, in short, to push the boundaries of where he is to where the work will lead him.

His work can be found at Gallery One in Ocean View, DE; the Rehoboth Art League Gallery, the Biggs Museum, and the Milton Art Guild Gallery.
