Artist Spotlight: Danielle Craven-Slaski

Most notably, she sculpted the Edgar Allen Poe bust handle for local brewery Raven Beer. Danielle begun working for the company almost right after highschool, and in her time there has dabbled in woodturning.

Artist Spotlight: Sandi Wilson

Since moving to Baltimore over 5 years ago from the West Coast, Sandi Wilson put her successful photography business on hold and decided to focus mainly on encaustic paintings after being inspired by taking a Creative Alliance art class.

Sandi Wilson

Sandi found she could beautifully meld the art side of her photography and painting with the depth that working with Encaustic (beeswax and Damar Resin ) could give her.

Sandi Wilson

Her last private show, primarily acrylic and encaustic mix, focused on the beauty of the ocean as she has been inspired by visiting and exploring many East coast towns and also by the views of the harbor from her and her husband’s rooftop balcony by Patterson Park.

Artist Spotlight: Emily C-D

Emily C-D is an interdisciplinary artist who splits her time between Baltimore and Mexico City. A process of exploration, collection, and appropriation of found materials and existing spaces informs her work. Her practice spans the gamut from installation and sculpture, to illustration and collage, costume, performance, and mural painting. She uses recycled materials whenever possible, and is absolutely obsessed with getting the most possible use out of every object that she gets her hands on.
