Tori Poeschl

Tori was introduced to clay at the age of 13. She found it to be a source of expression, and it helped absorb and release stress and emotion from life. Focusing on free expression, Tori’s work is a reflection of her changing environment and inner world exploring texture, mixing medias, creative alteration, and more.

Susan Frame

Susan Frame has been playing with ink for over forty years, creating Sumi-e (ink/water) paintings with free-style brushwork. Her work features expressive flowers, landscapes, and abstract interpretations created from ink, pigments, and rice paper.

Lisa Stauffer

Lisa Stauffer received her Masterʼs in Design (University of Minnesota, Minneapolis) and studied Illustration at Parsonʼs School of Design (NYC). She has worked and taught in a wide variety of media, now primarily painting in soft pastel with a special focus on painting en plein air to indulge her fascination with light and color in Minnesotaʼs beautiful North Shore landscape.
