From scarves to gloves to sweaters, knits are an obvious choice during the winter months. The cold weather may be dreary, but resist the urge to dress in blacks and grays. After all, this fashion season, brighter is better when it comes to everything knit. Bold colors and neon hues quickly transform knit winter staples into bold and modern statement pieces that are sure to add some new life to your wardrobe and perhaps even brighten up your day.

Tim’s Sally: Painting for me, is a nostalgic descent back to my childhood – a time when dolls were a huge part of my life. Today is not altogether different. I think of my paintings as play sets where I dress my dolls up and create their own environment. Sometimes this “land” is a sweet setting of animals, nature, and innate innocence while others are captivated by a mysterious engulfing darkness. I can relate.
Memories of playtime and my special collection of “neat stuff” that I kept in a wooden trunk made specially for me by my uncle were treasures to me. Baby doll heads, vintage dolls, sweet scents of everything yummy are areas of great inspiration. Artists such as Mark Ryden, Joe Sorren, and Casey O’Connell also capture my heart with a sweet tenderness encompassing subtle moments of time we all would like to revisit; a dream state so unique one could only wish to take part.
You know me. I don’t usually fall for Cute… but this is the cutest pincushion ever and even my cold flinty heart cannot resist it!!

The best season of them all: Spring.
Camera Shy Photography: My name is Hillary Burkett and I live in Richmond VA with the company of 2 cats and a wonderful husband, who is incredibly supportive of my recent art pursuits.
I have a longstanding passion for photography and it has become my outlet. I am always aware and in awe of my surroundings. Nature and wildlife are my primary inspirations.
Beauty is all around us, and through photography, I desperately try to catch the uncatchable, tame the untamable, and box it all up neatly in a viewfinder for others to see and enjoy.
I am an explorer at heart and an artist by consequence.
