Meet the Artist

IMG_3892Pauletta Berger - Handwovens by Pauletta

I am Pauletta of “Handwovens by Pauletta.” I’m a mother of four wonderful children and a Nonna to five beautiful grandchildren. I had a long and exciting career as a Special Needs Teacher and have since retired to spend more time as “Nonna.”

In 1983, I was inspired to weave and then mentored by a local weaver from Wheaton Village in South Jersey. Since then I have continued to learn, experiment, and develop my own unique weaving personality.

I thoroughly enjoy trying new techniques and sharing with other fiber enthusiasts.

After moving from South Jersey to North East Florida, I’ve had the opportunity to meet new artisans and experience a new and different environment!

I work in a studio space in my home and am able to weave on most days. I enjoy participating and demonstrating weaving at craft market events and try to do so regularly during the year. I have devoted myself to designing and creating artistic and functional scarves, shawls, and household linens such as rag rugs, placemats, table runners, and hand towels. I have also been known to make special “baby blankets” when the occasion arises.

I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without the love and support of my husband. He is the brains, brawn, and motivator behind me. He helps with a loom set up, packing the car for shows, and can even spin the most beautiful yarn for my wool scarves.

My name is Jeff Huebner. I have been making pots daily for about 17 years. I earned my BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. After graduating, I was an Artist in residence at the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, Maine. Currently, I'm an Artist in Residence at Atlantic Pottery in Atlantic Beach, Fl. My work is a direct reflection of my passion for nature and clay. The rich earth colors I use to give my pots an earthy inviting feel and would be a great addition to any nature lover's home. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and mountaineering. My latest adventures have taken me to the top of Mt. Rainier, Mt Adams, Mt Baker, Sahale Peak, Mount St. Helens in Washington, Longs Peak in Colorado, and on a Thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.

SteeceValerie Lamb-Steece

My studio is the windowed porch on my home, where the light is exquisite, and the views are of tropical plants. I live near the Atlantic Ocean as well as a large nature sanctuary (lucky me!). So we share our property with Owls, Woodpeckers, songbirds of all sorts, turtles, and lizards.

I share my studio space with Dottie the standard poodle and Bean, the dachshund.

I grew up in the Midwest county-side with parents who created a life they loved full of gardens and homemade bread. I had my eyes on the clouds, and climbing trees and drawing were my favorite hobbies. My daily tasks for staying inspired are as follows-

I draw in my sketchbook, paint both outdoors and indoors and read to be inspired by others.

I meditate and write to more fully understand and express what my work is about.

I make things every single day because I love it.

Original art has energy, a sort of lifeblood. When you respond to the artwork on any level, you are responding to that energy.
