Read About the Artists Below

Matt Miller
Matt Miller started drawing at an early age and was often seen with pencil, pen, or charcoal in hand. He took several drawing classes at this time, however as he grew and adulthood came upon him, a long hiatus in his art took place. Later, as an accomplished adult, he took up drawing and oil painting with renewed zeal, studying with several skilled local artists, taking classes at a number of local studios and the Rhode Island School of Design. He came across the artwork of David Leffel and became heavily influenced by his work, working with and attending numerous training sessions over the next few years with Mr. Leffel and his wife Sherrie McGraw in California and in Taos NM.

Barbara Trainer
Barbara Trainer began jewelry designing in 2007 as another creative outlet in her life. Her career as a certified landscape designer led to her interest in other kinds of design. With a background in needle & fabric crafts, she started working with jewelry components such as hand-blown imported glass, sterling silver, other metals and many other unusual, eclectic materials. Her pieces are meant to catch & reflect light & color in a delicate interplay. And she strives to create necklaces & earrings of unique textures & forms.

Her company, Beadcraft Etc., was founded in 2008 in her design studio at her home in West Roxbury, MA. She and her business partner, Monica Fairbairn, exhibit their jewelry at arts & crafts venues throughout the state. Please see Barbara's Facebook page for pictures and schedules of upcoming shows.
