Painter & Graphic Designer
Regional artist, Douglas P. Quillinan, has been practicing many forms of fine art for most of his life. Born in Ogden, Utah, and raised in ‘good ole’ Evanston,Wyoming, Doug was self-tutored at a young age through the inspirations found in old Art History books. His artistic skills and inspirations were further developed with the help of local art instructors.
Doug is a graduate of the University of Wyoming, earning a Bachelor’s in Art Education and Graphic Design. Currently, he teaches art at Davis Middle School in Evanston, Wyoming. This daily practice has allowed him to further discover the possibilities of creativity in his painting and art. In the future, he would like to continue to support his wife and family through the selling and teaching of art. You can learn more about his life and art at www.DPQstudios.com
S-Designs Jewelry & Skincare
I have called Southwestern Wyoming home since 1987. Although not a native, I can't imagine being anywhere else. I am a landscaper by trade, which allows me a lot of free time in the winter to pursue other creative endeavors. I love working for myself. I am grateful to be blessed with the freedom I have to do so many things.
I have the good fortune of being a grandma. My family is one of the primary reasons I began the pursuit of handmade skin care products. I wanted to know what was going in to the products we use everyday. I use ingredients I believe are beneficial in many ways. I love the chemistry of creating my skin care products from the raw material state. Many of my scents and colors come from essential oils and herbal infusions. I use some artificial flavors, colors, and scents because some of them are just plain cool and fun. I strive to make my labels clear, so you know exactly what you are getting. Some of my products are even vegan friendly (no emu, beeswax, lanolin, or animal byproducts). I, however, choose to use it all.
Most of my jewelry pieces are one of a kind. (a few have been duplicated, 'cause they are just too cute to only make one) I like many different styles, so the creation of each piece is a lot of fun for me. I enjoy pieces that have built in flexibility in how they are worn. I like to design with stone, glass, crystals, pearls, and shell. I use silver and gold plated findings and accents to keep my pieces affordable. When you purchase an item from my shop, I hope that it makes you smile when you wear it, knowing it is unique and was made with care.
