Artists of the Month for December 2019 -
Sue Tucker, Watercolor, Alcohol Ink, Silk Scarves and Bead-Weaving Bracelets
and Melanie Knight, Watercolor, Waterproof Fabrics, Clay and Silk Scarves

After Sue Tucker and her husband retired to Ocean Shores, Sue dipped her toes into the world of watercolor painting where she was able to learn different techniques and styles which helped her develop her own style. Through Sue’s continued interest in watercolors and the subjects that abound in the area, she has been fortunate enough to win awards at the local art shows. Sue is now doing alcohol ink Christmas balls, silk scarves and bead weaving bracelets.

Melanie Knight is a local artist who began painting after she retired to Ocean Shores. She has since become a member of The Gallery of Ocean Shores and Studio 6, the clay workshop. She is a multi-media artist because exploring various media keeps life interesting and creates new challenges. Currently she is designing and painting on heavy canvas to create both hanging art and usable art. This process creates waterproof art which can be hung inside or out. She also makes table runners that withstand the test of time and don’t require washing and ironing. Learning to create in clay has been a challenging new adventure in art. Her finished products are fired using both traditional glazes and raku glaze. You can see her fish and leaves at the gallery. Melanie also paints in watercolor and makes one-of-a-kind silk scarves.
