Jim Knull Pat Wilson

Paintings and sculpture - all with bold color and design. Jim presents larger than life bentwood flowers of all colors and shapes with a few driftwood birds for good measure. Pat uses recycled newspapers and file folders to make paper mache like you've never seen before. Her large acrylic paintings are filled with bold color and some have a bittersweet message.

Alan Newberg

Alan recently gifted artwork to the Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County. He has been on three overseas trips for the organization; two in Guatemala and one in China. The experiences he shared with his fellow volunteers on the builds in Guatemala inspired him to create two oil paintings. One painting depicts the building of the actual house, and the other focusing on the home, the family unit.
These paintings now hang in the offices of the Habitat for Humanity of Kitsap County.
