Robin Satterthwaite

As the director of a children’s ballet company, Robin is music, dance, nature and Shakespeare.  Robin has created a line of whimsical jewelry that dances about the wrist and neck on wire, wrapped and twisted, to link the steps in a carefully choreographed ballet featuring the cast of rhinestones, pearls, glass, crystal and metal beads.  In an effort to be unique, Robin has created her own technique for working with the wire and has refrained from borrowing ideas from the works of modern artists.  "I do however; sometimes look to the design of vintage pieces for inspiration.  Many of my customers not only wear my jewelry but display is as work of art".

Tim Bastianse

I have always been fascinated by interesting stones. As a young boy, I would spend hours selecting rocks from his neighbors’ driveways and every evening my mother would return them.
 
Having had no formal art training, I let the stones speak to me, inspiration from natural materials.
 
I attended the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts studying under Tom Turner for a few classes. I was a member and officer of the Signature Artists Co-op of Kalamazoo for 11 years.
 
As an exhibiting member of the Michigan Guild of Artists and Artisans, I have done the Summer Art Fair in Ann Arbor since1986.
 
My work has been shown at many large art shows in the Mid-West including Ann Arbor, MI, Rochester, MI, Madison, WI, Skokie, IL, Minneapolis, MN, Chicago, IL, East Lansing, MI, and Oak Park, IL just
to name a few.

DeLoyd John Huenink

 DeLoyd John Huenink holds an art degree in dimensional art from Carroll College in Waukesha, WI.  After co-founding an advertising agency that grew to a staff of over 60, he opened one of the first video animation studios in the US.  Other careers included new product development for an international medical company, opening the first personal computer store in Wisconsin, starting an early internet development company, and developing a log home dealership. At the age of 60, Huenink entered the ministry, and served as pastor of a  United Methodist Church for 5 years before "retiring." Huenink began his art career as a painter and metal sculptor, then expanded his media experimentation into wildlife and free form wood carving (he holds a number of blue ribbons in carving in the Chicago and Milwaukee areas.) Huenink is a photographer, painter, wood worker, furniture builder, and glass blower.
Huenink has taken pictures of the world around him for many years.  He is convinced that beauty and unique views of life surround all of us, but that most of the time we do not take the time to see...  His camera travels with him most everywhere. DeLoyd and Susan, his wife, are retired and live on the Kalamazoo River in Michigan.

Kathleen Van Tubbergen

After many years of playing with various materials Kathy enrolled in drawing, water color, and photography classes at Hope College while she was the Women's Tennis Coach. She followed this not only with more classes and workshops, but also with art shows and competitions around the stat, and God continued to open up more time for her to pursue her interest in water color, photography, and stained glass.

She is an active member of the Holland Friends of Art and has served on its Board of Directors. She has taught classes in the community in both stained glass and water color, and continued to generate works that are displayed in several galleries in the are.

Both the variety and delicacy of God's creation as well as the intricate designs of man in architecture have special appeal as subject matter in her renderings. She believes that her play has turned to fun as she disciplines herself to capture the joy and extraordinary elegance in the sights of ordinary life. 

Kathy also can do a painting of your favorite memorable spot, either plain air or from your photos. She does many commissioned pieces in water color, pen & ink or stained glass.

Cheryl Masters

A resident of Saugatuck all of her adult life, Cheryl Masters summered here as a child. All her daylight hours were spent with her family on the shore of Lake Michigan where she developed her love of shells, stones, and the colors of the season that is present in her work today.

A beloved teacher of three and four-year olds for twenty-four years, Cheryl decided to answer the call of a different passion and pursue her love of handcrafting jewelry. Using her extensive collection of beach glass, as well as lamp work beads and gemstones, Cheryl fashions casual jewelry suitable to wear at the beach, at play, or at the office. Colors of soft aqua, pale blue, and sea green are interwoven with Swarovski crystals and fresh water pearls fastened with sterling silver. The “Beach Inspirations” collection is born from a desire to keep the feeling of summer available all year long.

 Recently Cheryl has also specialized in jewelry for brides-to-be and their attendants.  By designing specialized pieces to compliment their gowns, Cheryl is successful at adding the extra attention to detail that is the hallmark of a special wedding. She plans pieces that match the color and style of each dress and follows the creative vision of each bride whether on-line or in-person. Her patrons know the special care she pays to the appropriate fit, comfort and scale of her jewelry, and she can design simply or lavishly to suit the personal tastes and needs of her clients.

 Cheryl and her family pursue the sun year round. Whenever possible, she finds a beach in the tropics where she can soak up the sun while her husband and two children scuba dive in the azure blue water. It is here, when she recaptures the happy days of her early summers, that she finds the artistic inspiration for her designs and renews the vision for her work.

 She hopes, whenever you wear one of her pieces, that the calm and beauty of the beach is yours as well.
