Featured Artist Stephen Twite of Lime Creek Art

Stephen Twite Lime Creek 2015-08-29.smFor Stephen Twite, painting had been a fascination for years. He decided it was time to bring his dream to life and begin painting while in Munich on a business trip, in 1999.   Most of Stephen’s paintings are bright and whimsical.   His process is to start with the background, not having any idea what is going on top, and to identify a main character or focal point after the mood, surroundings and ambiance have been created.  Primary influences are Miro, Calder, Picasso, Klimt and Klee, but inspiration comes from everywhere.

Featured Artist Children’s Author Charlotte Babler of Kids For Thought

Charlotte Babler Kids For Thought 6.11.2016Award-winning children’s author Charlotte Babler describes becoming an author:

”As my three children grew older, I found myself at the end of my career in childcare. I left the life that I knew and loved… I stumbled through my new life with a hole in my heart where all of the children had lived before.  Needing to stay connected, I decided to write about all of the wonderful memories that I had stored of that special time in my life. Each memory holds love, humor, and sweetness. All of my writing stems from the privilege of watching children grow and learn in their world.”
