Raised in rural Ohio, Cassaundra Giles began painting over twenty years ago. Inspired by her high school art teacher Mrs. Garmon and fascinated by the work of Jackson Pollock, she developed her own unique style of abstract acrylic painting. The opportunity to travel gave her an even deeper appreciation of the visual world and an understanding of the human response to color.
After marrying her husband Andrew and starting a beautiful family, Cassaundra rediscovered her talent and became more intentional in her artistic practice. Painting with her young daughter has allowed her to explore new techniques and create with the fearlessness of a child.
Her work reflects the colors and beauty she sees in the natural world and conveys a sense of warmth, joy, and hope through her creative use of color and texture.
Cassaundra’s hope is that her paintings will echo her deep connection with God and bring a sense of light and peace to the spaces where they’re displayed.

Teresa Dunn is a Mexican American artist raised in rural Southern Illinois. Her identity, life, and art is poetically influenced by being suspended between two cultural heritages. Language, space, color, light, and storytelling find expressiveness through moving toward and away from simultaneously contradictory tensions. Gloria Anzaldúa’s “Borderlands” accurately reflects Dunn’s own reconciliation of her mexicansimo with her American-ness and the complexities of growing up and living as multicultural woman in the Midwest.
Clayton Pond (b. 1941) was among the first artists to employ silkscreen printing in a fresh, distinctly personal way. His paintings and limited edition silkscreen prints are immediately recognizable for their bright, cheerful colors and their compositional balance. Over the span of his career, his work has revealed a fascination with vibrant color interactions, and the infinite possibilities that color relationships present. Deviating from the expected and rejecting the conventional, his particular use of color offers the viewer a charming, idiosyncratic interpretation of the world.
Pond’s subject matter ranges from immediate, domestic, and every-day surroundings to the outlandish, surreal, and fantastical, including his imagined perspective of outer space. His interpretations of the human condition evoke his unique sense of humor.
