Tracy Pesche, Artist

Tracy Pesche Artist Profile

Nicknamed Tra by her family and friends, Tracy Pesche has been a “maker kid” since she was little, selling pot holders and painted rocks. Her passion for the arts is inherited from her parents, who own a fine art gallery that opened in 1976, and led to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a concentration in ceramics, from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Today, Tracy finds herself in her hometown of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, raising her own family and creating whimsical pieces out of wood and metal. Her bright colors and whimsical style appeal to all ages. Tracy hopes her pieces put a smile on others’ faces!

Lori Siebert, Artist

Lori Siebert Artist Profile

Working in a mix of media that includes everything from acrylics and watercolors to torn paper and clay, Lori is constantly experimenting with new ways to create her signature artwork. Finding inspiration from her kids’ drawings, an old quilt or an off-beat piece of folk art, her insatiable curiosity, a whimsical design sense and fresh approach to color and sentiment give each collection its own unique personality. A common thread through most of her work features the use of text to convey deeply sentimental and inspiring messages.

The Sharon Nowlan collection transforms a mix of composite pebbles and other materials into inspirational designs. Known as pebble art, these fine artisan reproductions capture the joy and emotional experience of relationships.
