Focusing on New Jersey

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be focusing on awesome NJ artists and showing you what talent is out there.

Our first spotlight is going to be on Fantasy Clay. She is based out of Bayonne NJ and has been working in polymer clay for over 10 years. She does adorable fantasy figures, check out her shop on ArtFire.
Here are a few of my personal faves;

1. SteamPunk Turtle

2.Gold and Green Dragon

3.Star Wars Meeples....great for game pieces

Check out her awesome stuff and support this local artist!

Getting this all started

OK here we go.... First off we are a group of siblings working together to create fine quality jewelry, cards, and other crafts and art.  We were all born and raised in New Jersey though have lived in other places too.  Kelly  (me the current narator) studied at Drexel in Philadelphia PA and shortly lived in Milford PA.  Allie lived in New Orleans where she studied and received her bachelors degree from Tulane and she has also studied abroad in Spain.  Colleen is currently studing for her bachelors in West Virginia at WVU.  So together we have a lot of individual experiences (our stew) we can call on to influence our art.  We also have a brother Riley (13) who is our "manager," he just loves to boss us around, but be glad he's not in charge of pricing....lol.
We all have our mediums we enjoy working in but we dabble in everything Jacks of All Trades, I guess you could call us.
