Jackie is a watercolor artist. She's been painting watercolors for 48 years. Special orders are gladly taken by her. With my paintings, I try to interpret life, nature, and my emotions, in form and movement. Watercolor is the medium with which I choose to paint my interpretations. I find watercolor very free flowing, spontaneous, and very expressive. The transparency of watercolors allows me to build layer upon layer of color to each form to obtain the effect that will move the viewer. I take a deeper look at what I want to express to others in my paintings and work towards that goal. I try in my paintings to mirror the soul and elevate the viewer’s.
Christina is a talented artist and creates art from many mediums.
Doug is a native of Somerset County, who began painting in the 1970's. As a self-taught artist, he enjoys working in all mediums. His artwork typically features life on the Delmarva Peninsula, its people, places and wildlife, both past and present. His deep love of the outdoors and the area's native wildlife dominates much of his work.
Exhibited and sold in shows around Maryland, Delaware and Virginia, his work has also appeared in several publications.
The Rayfields currently reside in Allen, MD.
Brian has been an artist since he was a child. His mother encouraged him to be a professional artist, and his aunt taught him all about oil painting. He had a thriving candle-making business in his young teenage years, but his passions became aikido, judo, and karate. He has spent his life in the Baltimore area and Boulder Colorado. Brian and his wife Karen owned and operated “Boulder Fine Arts” and several other small companies in Colorado before moving back east. With his career as a martial arts teacher, Brian has traveled extensively. When it was time to retire, he yearned for water instead of mountains and moved to a quiet fishing village off the Chesapeake Bay. Crisfield, “The Crab Capital of the World” is now his home.
"Life starts out. You learn, grow, experience all life can offer. This includes challenges. Surprise detours. My cancer was a detour. It turned out to be a reimagination of myself. My art now was a mission: to promote messages of afirmation, Faith, Hope, Perseverance, Reassurance and Joy. All that is needed on a personal journey that is challenging." Kathryn was in 8th grade when she first started to study art in NJ. Oils, pastels, charcoal, acrylic, photography and mixed media. Whatever media the objects or the inspiration is best reflected in. She is an actress and the Artistic Director of Lower Shore Arts Performing Company providing live performing arts events, arts alive education programs for adults and children in public speaking, art forms, writing and techniques for actors. She is a ember of the Corbin Gallery and Studio Cooperative, CAED and The River Artists Collective, Art League of Ocean City and Gallery 413.

Hi There! I am Darla Donley, from Crisfield, Maryland. I am newly retired from being in education for 39 years and doing event planning. I am now in my new season of life, making a move with my husband and three Great Danes from Pennsylvania to Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay, Crisfield, Maryland. A town with great people, talented artist, and amazing sunsets. Our son, his girlfriend, and our grandpup live in Boston, another great coastal city.
Life on the water...an exciting new chapter to pen. To my surprise, Crisfield is full of treasures: sea glass, pottery, driftwood, and shells from the Chesapeake Bay (some may say trash...all a matter of perspective). A reminder of the power, grace, changeable qualities, and life the Bay invites. Endless possibilities...I love to create and I am inspired to bring repurpose to this churned, battered, and not so useless glass by creating sea glass art. I love piecing these canvases together into meaningful and fun art for all. Some pieces have their own names and seem to tell their own story - each one a different story. All treasures kissed by nature, sharp edges tamed to smooth, and colorful beauty designed and reborn into artful creations.
I love being a part of Crisfield’s art family, so many inspiring artists. I also have an Etsy shop, Blue Willow Sea Glass, http://etsy.com/shop/bluewillowseaglass . The name “Blue Willow” is inspired by and in honor of our sister, Julie,
who lost her battle with breast cancer. She gifted my two sisters and I with silver dipped willow leaf necklaces during her battle, to remind us that the willow leaf will always bend, but never break. Blue Willow also happens to be a type of sea glass. Perfect harmony!
