Medium: Photography, Watercolor, Pen & Ink, Wool
Eclectic best describes my work and my love of art. My art is mostly inspired by nature and my Pennsylvania German heritage. The stylized illustrations I produce in watercolor and pen and ink largely stem from my studies of art found on old PA German barns, furniture, certificates and quilts. I turn these illustrations into wearable art in the form of pins. My photography is a combination of natural landscapes, wildlife, structures (particularly those that are old or abandoned) and architectural details. As I continue to explore the use of various medium, I'm finding new ways to bring my ideas to life.You can visit my Art and Design Studio and Gift Shop in Palmerton - visit my website at TakingDeeperRoots.com

Corinne Chabot, artist, has been a self taught painter since 2015
when she was struggling with her lung disease and looking for an
outlet to help her cope with her disease. Corinne attended a wine and

happiness and inspiration not to mention it was great therapy. She
paints both with watercolors and acrylic as well as experimenting with
mixed medias. Corinne’s favorite things to paint are animal portraits
which she has been commissioned to do many times. She has won
many awards for her paintings that have been displayed at the
Bloomsburg Fair and the Wilkes-Barre Art Festival. Her works have
been displayed at the Tamaqua Community Art Center, the Carbon
Chamber of Commerce, Palmerton Library Art Show, Carbon County
Art League Show and currently are displayed at the Greenleaf Gallery
in Beaver Meadows, Pa. Corinne’s collection called “With Every

My work as an artist is inspired by nature. I use wood as my palette to create my art by carving or a turning or combining both. I grew up with nature in my backyard. Growing up I liked to fish, hike and photograph nature and still do. Nature is a big part of my life and has so much to offer, it gives me my medium to work with and then lets me create objects inspired by its beauty.

Medium: Oil, Charcoal, Pastel
Drawing and painting provide me with a sense of peace. I am inspired to do this work through memories of my father’s love for drawing and woodworking and the time he spent teaching me to carefully observe and appreciate life’s simplest times.
My choice of subject matter often happens unexpectedly, as when I see an object which reminds me of a long forgotten, but meaningful, moment. I choose a particular medium – charcoal, pastel, or oil – to capture the feel of the memory. A touch of humor, sprinkled here and there when appropriate, adds another dimension to a number of my works. I would like my pieces to spark a pleasant memory in the minds of viewers and to encourage them to realize the beauty found in ordinary objects and daily activities. Find my art at mashaferfineart.com.
I am a multimedia artist with a Bachelor’s degree in fine art, and a Master’s degree in art history. Whether in paintings or drawings the language of my visualization often draws on the legacy of Surrealism, where fantasy and pastiche play an integral part. I am concept and technique driven, using the narrative of the line as a style of calculated precision to weave a story. My eclectic gallery of 'bird-women' falls into the category of what Joan Miro once noted about Surrealism: what really counts is to strip the soul naked - and are largely confined to portraiture.
