Gallery Happenings— Art Box – We will feature Mark Taylor’s work. “The Wild Side”- Being in love with photography since the late 1970s, Mark Taylor joined the field as a self-taught, freelancing “Photog” (photographer). He was intrigued with darkroom development and capturing expression and light. He began to take photos on film, images of wild life, landscapes, people and anything that crossed his path. Mark began his photography journey by using a Minolta 35mm camera, upgrading then to a Nikon 35mm and currently shoots with Cannon DSLRs. In 2009, Mark became a member of the Ogden Camera Club. This has afforded him the opportunity to travel with other members to the inner depths of our beautiful forests, National Parks and local surroundings, capturing scenery and wildlife in its most fascinating environment.

I am Hollie. I am a hand lettering artist and a self-developed designer of all things creative. I LOVE sharing my art and creativity with friends. I come from a large family of creatives and together we are quite the bunch because they offer me a lot in learning. I am thankful for all the exchanges, support and love they offer. With a start in life of humble beginnings, my siblings and I were taught to hustle, be industrious, and self-reliant for anything we wanted or thought we needed. This training as young entrepreneur gave me a great sense of pride and accomplishment. My love for creating and designing runs as deep as I can remember. I have always loved color, art, crafts, music, typography and words, written and spoken. As soon I learned to perfect my penmanship in elementary school, I began playing with fonts, written notes, and posters. I continually strive to learn and grow each day. This mostly comes from taking part in challenges and practice, practice, practice and practice! As days pass, I have had the great opportunity to create on an ever-widening horizon of avenues. I am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge and skill set. I rely so much on my faith, testimony and my Savior to realize and fulfill my potential. I was created to create. I love sharing time and knowledge with others to help them discover things they might enjoy. I am married to awesome man with a great goatee and we have two kids and a dog. Living the dream! We currently reside in Ogden, Utah and love all it has to offer! Demonstrations & Organizations: Earl J Talbot will be doing leatherworking demos.

  • Hi! I am Jen. Mom to three brilliant daughters and proud widow of Major Brad "Gyro" Funk. I grew up in Roy and Graduated from Weber State. I started painting as self-prescribed grief therapy after I lost my husband and found it to be a wonderful, healing outlet. I paint abstract and impressionistic art filled with texture. Most of my work has an element of loss, healing or love manifested in it, because, that is what I am dealing with in life. If I could sum up my work in a few words, it would be "Hope in color”. It has made me happy to have people tell me that my art is something they wanted to give someone who had experienced a loss, or who needed a reminder that things would be ok...that they thought it would help that person...That is the reason I am creating it. I sell original paintings in acrylic, oil, charcoal and ink. As well as a line of limited edition prints, greeting cards and notebooks. Mom. Widow. Artist. Life is still good. Throw some paint on it.

  • Jessica Douglas is another artist that we will feature at the art stroll. For nearly three decades, Jessica has explored fantasy and fantastical subjects through a wide range of mediums. From pencils and paper, to watercolors and fine gemstones, everything has been fair game to express her thoughts. She is best known for her work with 78Tarot, creating paintings to illustrate the spiritual meaning of each card. She often jokes that for an atheist, she certainly creates a lot of spiritual art. Her use of fantasy in her paintings gives her freedom to explore intangible concepts such as love, death, loss, without being constrained by the symbolism of any one religion or culture.
