Eva Maria Keiser
Eva Maria Keiser. Eva Maria Keiser originally from Vienna, Austria, currently resides in Boise, Idaho, USA. In 2000 bead art was serendipitously introduced, complimenting a multi-generational heritage of needlework. The medium of beads added a new dimension of texture and light refraction. Her passion for architected structural design was renewed from witnessing the grandeur of European masters. Many hours are dedicated to the study and mastery of beadwork exploration. Interactive narratives, surprising interiors, unique colorways, and tactility attained from multiple layers best describe her work. Eva Maria's business services and corporate training consultancy is integrated and enhanced through the process of her artistic expression. Her work has been featured and published in leading trade magazines.

Marcia Jestaedt
Marcia Jestaedt. Marcia Jestaedt lives in Bowie, Maryland. She is a ceramic artist whose tile work consists mainly of orientally inspired robes. She feels that design and color are basic to all forms of art and that critical choices of both determine its success or failure. She has been dealing with these elements for over 35 years and continues to love the challenge that they present. She spends many months drawing her designs and choosing the colors that she thinks will make the piece successful. The latter is very important as once the piece is fired changes in color cannot be made. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland having majored in studio arts. She has taught both privately and at various educational venues including the University of Maryland. She has received many awards and grants, and her work has been exhibited and is in collections throughout the USA, Europe, Africa and Asia.
