JOE CONWAY has joined us in AOS Painting Studio to add a lot of fun to our meetings. Behind his soft-spoken demeanor, he has a great sense of humor and an amazing ability to make these fantastic renditions of his favorite comic heroes drawn larger than life in colored pencil. We look forward to more of Joe’s work this year.

MARK HOFFMAN started coming to AOS Painting Studio early this year with great enthusiasm. Even when he has had a rough morning at work, Mark is anxious to spend some quiet time drawing with his friends in the afternoon. Architectural subjects have been his major interest thus far. Some of his structures are representational with much detail while others are freely interpreted designs. Whatever Mark has drawn, he is proud to share with his fellow artists and staff at work. We look forward to Mark’s next exciting works.

TERRY WALKDEN has found art making to be a great pleasure and participates in both AOS Painting and Ceramic studios. He pays close attention to detail in all that he creates. Terry’s curiosity has led him to some unique experiments this year. In painting studio he made a composition of fabric applique by drawing with colored pencils, then hand-stitching to complete his design. In ceramic studio he carved a bas-relief plaque with a bird. Unfortunately, the large tile cracked in the firing, but with a supportive wooden mount the finished art is even more exceptional. Terry is a hard worker and often assists in AOS tile production.

TIM SMITH loves to draw – really loves to draw! He could spend hours at the drawing board making meticulous renderings of house floor plans, building exteriors with all the ornamentation and details. Then, suddenly, he has switched subjects and is drawing animals or his favorite celebrities. Tim has been making art at AOS since 2004. He works exclusively with ball point pen, markers colored pencils.
