As a child I enjoyed Art, coloring, drawing…you name it. Working with bold, intense coloring, is my passion…the gemstone of my soul. As an Architectural Engineering graduate, I realized this were not in unison to my personality. Portraits of my soul are harmoniously in tune with expressionistic painting.
Capturing the feeling of the moment is important to me. Using color and motion, I try to paint in a way that affords the observer an entry into the story of the painting.
I continue to study under artist Michael McEwan and remain so grateful for his guidance and encouragement.
GLORIA BRAGG (GLORIA’S BEADS)
I began beading quite unexpectedly in 2009 when my daughter needed her wedding shoes embellished. I found myself at a local bead shop and as I checked out I won a free instructional class. After attending the class, I was hooked on the creative and physical processes involved in jewelry beading.

My fascination with beads began six years ago. I love how there are infinite possibilities combining colors, textures, and finishes of various beads. I also like to incorporate “found” objects in my jewelry, such as shells, buttons, vintage pieces, and coins. When not making jewelry I am a wife, mother, and teacher.
I graduated from Muskingum College with a degree in art education and taught art in public schools for over 20 years. Over the years I began to incorporate vintage elements into my work and started a jewelry business, known as, Vintage Vamp. Today, Vintage Vamp has grown into a full time business.
Today my work can be found in boutiques, galleries and at juried festivals. I live in Columbus with my husband and two children. I happily continue creating artisan jewelry with a vintage twist in my German Village studio.
In the “Wizard of Oz” remember how you felt when the
movie turned to color – that’s how I feel when I paint.
I was born in Columbus, Ohio and I live in German Village.

The Merchant of Venice, by William Shakespeare, also directed by Kuhn, runs from Thursday, June 28 to Sunday, July 29. This is one of William Shakespeare’s most well-known and beloved plays. The production offers both sides of the theatrical coin with its moments of lightheartedness, and its exploration of prejudice. Kuhn says, “We are very pleased to be able to offer The Merchant of Venice. The themes that it explores are as relevant today as they were when the play was written.”
