Rising Phoenix Arts

My painting/jewelry making got started when inhad to pull my life out of the ashes after my first husband died from a brain tumor. The first bit of joy I found following his lengthy illness was in painting in acrylics onto carved leather! I branched out from there to create leather roses & ooak (one of a kind) jewelry pieces (which are mostly fannish in nature/geek inspired). Sharing the inspriation & joy of each piece I create with the people who take them home to enjoy is a favorite part of my being an artist!

B. Stark Art

Brandy Stark started wire bending in 1995. Over the past 25 years, she has created numerous hand wrapped wire metal sculptures of mythological creatures ranging from mermaids and fairies to dragons and headless horsemen. To make her works more unique, and in keeping a mind toward environmentalism, she also adds in upcycled pieces to each.

Choose from prints, cards, and bookmarks of anime, comic, and movie characters, fairies, dragons, and other fantastical creatures. Or consider custom art drawn to your specifications. It can be a traditional portrait or whatever your imagination and mine can conjure. I use photos you provide or online images as models. Visit my website to see galleries of examples of my work, my Amazon books, and more.

Ralph J Ryan

I am primarily a self-taught artist and have pursued artistic endeavors most of my life. My art is an exploration of landscapes, both real and imagined. Working in acrylics and watercolors, my paintings reflect the influences of impressionist painting, a long-time interest in architecture, and the dramatic lighting of the theatre.

Demicon Lite – Paint Pouring

Paint Pouring is an all ages, fun and unique way to create incredible pieces of art.   The process works by mixing acrylic paints with a conditioner (such as floetrol), and then combining the concoctions into a single vessel which is then poured and drizzled over the canvas.   You pick the colors, and gravity does the work.   You can even add additional components (such as silicon oils) to add additional details and complexity to your finished work.

The Des Moines Science Fiction & Fantasy Society, Inc. hosts several workshops and learning panels throughout the year.   Click here to check and book mark our calendar, so that you can be a part of upcoming activies, including an event where you can learn the science behind color and specific gravity while creating your own paint pour creation!

Sarah Clemens
