Journey Upstream

Acrylic on canvas  54 x 48


“How many journeys do we embark on before we realize they’re important life changers?  I like to remind myself that any journey, adventure or technique can be a pivotal one and I like to live within presence so I can savor that.” – Patty Ripley


Spirit Ridge

Mixed media on canvas  48 x 36


“Avidly hiking these past years in the Pacific Northwest and California, I notice how the ridge point tends to be the pinnacle of the hike. It’s where the culminated effort and forward momentum comes to a stop. The body slows and relaxes, and even if the view is diminished by weather, there’s a peacefulness that pervades as you become attuned to the silence and surroundings – a peacefulness which often follows you back down the trail as you notice with fresh eyes the new vistas from a new direction.” – Patty Ripley

Adirondacks at Dusk

Acrylic on panel  16 x 20


Adirondacks At Dusk invites you to bring your glass of wine and a friend, sit down, take in the view and unwind. The last of the sun’s rays are hitting the chairs and soon it will be dark. The foreground rocks have already fallen into the shade and there is only a light breeze on the water. It is August and it is still warm so you don’t need a jacket. For the moment you have completely forgotten about work.” – Susie Cipolla


Dusk on the Water

Acrylic on canvas  30 x 40


Dusk On The Water is of a ship that was abandoned near Britannia, BC. It was towed and left to live its last few years neglected and rusting away. Over the last year that it was moored there it developed a list and one day it was gone.” 

– Susie Cipolla

Timorphic Neckpiece

Welded pure titanium rings; Sterling Silver clasp and rings


The word ‘maille’ is derived from the French word for ‘net’ or ‘mesh’. Maille is a material made of interwoven rings or links that may be combined with other elements, such as metal plates. A geometric shape-shifter, maille can embody chain, fabric, or complex sculptural forms.

– Anne Kelly

Sterling Silver and Gold-Filled Chain with Patinated Silver Rings and Spiral Gold-Filled Beads

35.5″ long


“In this chain, the beautiful gold is highlighted by the black of the sterling silver. To obtain this contrast the silver has been patinated – Patina is a naturally occurring process when metal is exposed to air; think of the beautiful green that appears on copper roofs over time, or our pennies (when we had them) that turned from bright and shiny to dull brown.” – Doreen Schneider


Sterling Silver Abstracted Chain

18-20″ long (adjustable)


“I work mainly with sterling silver and semi-precious stones but sometimes I want to make a statement to illustrate the beauty and sophistication of silver alone – this Sterling Silver Abstracted Chain is the result.”  – Doreen Schneider
