What is a custom portrait? Why is there more of a cost associated with custom photography? Without knowing the ins and outs of the photography business sometimes custom portraits are misunderstood. This is taken with permission from Marianne Drenthe’s Consumer Guide to Custom Photography. What custom photography ultimately is all about is choice and experience (as in THE experience).

About Connie: ”A lifetime resident of the Dover/New Philadelphia area, I currently reside in Dover. After working in HR, marketing and accounting for Zimmer then in HR for ProVia, Union Hospital and Progressive Foam, I was taught to make lampwork beads and kumihimo weaving which tapped into my creative side and my love of jewelry. I attended Kent State University and graduated fro Malone University and gained on-the-job jewelry knowledge working for Findlay Fine Jewelry. In addition to caring for my grandsons and other family members, and bookkeeping for Industrial Finishers, I have created my won business: Connie’s Design Works.”
Kumihimo: The centuries old art of Japanese braiding. This unique style is such a wonderful addition to our Gallery’s collection.
Lampwork Beads: Beads made by melting glass rods around a steel mandrel then placing them into a kiln to anneal/harden. With proper care, annealed beads should last a lifetime.

Wendy Lewis is a Akron based quilt artist. She was raised in an artistic family and has a degree in art and in engineering. Wendy started quilting as an adult, and dove directly into art quilting. Her inspirations often come from her native Ohio landscape and immediate surroundings.
Wendy mostly creates small wall art quilts that showcase her artistic ability with fabric and thread detail. Some of these are abstract, some impressionistic, and some realistic. She also creates large pieces that provide visual impact while absorbing sound in large rooms. One of her latest interests is making utilitarian quilts from recycled wool. These are just fun.
Wendy has won many first place and best of show awards in local art shows. She also occasionally wins awards in quilt shows! Besides quilting and working full time, Wendy teaches quilting classes at A Piece in Time, gives guild presentations, sells quilts, sells pixelquilt patterns, and sells paintings.
Scenic quilt piece by Wendy measures 25″x 32″.
This piece is absolutely beautiful! It measures 17″x 86″ and can be hung vertically or horizontally.Learn More
Heritage Studio is excited to present to you our most recent additions to our art gallery, the unique works of Caleb McKnight!
Caleb McKnight works exclusively in oils with an emphasis on still life painting. His training began in Houston, Texas under the guidance of Impressionist painter Jeannine Campbell. Upon her death, he then studied with Realist painter George Gonzalez. Today, their teachings are evident in his work that combines the dramatic lighting of Gonzalez’s style with the loose brushwork of Campbell’s. McKnight seeks out to paint unusual subject matter in a contemporary style that is appealing to all. After formal training in Texas and exhibitions in Florida, he is now working in northeast Ohio.
Come into the studio to check out his awesome paintings!
I was born in Manhattan, NY in 1979 and moved to Akron, Ohio as a young boy. I met my wife Stacey (Owens) during my high school years. My wife and our kids were born and raised here in Akron.
I enjoyed art as a child, always drawing cartoon characters. In high school, I decided to take some welding classes to kick-start my career path. I always had an interest in building things and working with metal intrigued me. Welding seemed a natural fit. Throughout my training and working with metal, I have gained a lot of experience with many different types of metalwork as well as a variety of metals.
There were times that Stacey was struggling to find things for the house… furniture, lamps, wall hangings. We often had trouble finding items that we both liked. Most of the things we found were mass-produced, lacking style or creativity, or low quality. Eventually we decided I could make what we wanted much easier than we could find it somewhere else. We often discussed taking the leap and starting our own business providing imaginative, quality furnishings and accessories to people who felt the same as we did. We were confident we weren’t alone in our dislike of the bland mass produced furnishings most commonly available.
Eventually, my work situation became more and more unstable. This made it pretty easy to make the decision to start up Scofield Designs and Metalworks. We’ve been working on our own since 2008 and feel really good about the quality and design of the pieces we’ve been able to produce up to this point. We are anxious to continue to grow our clientele and expand our sales area. If there is any service that we can provide for you, please don’t hesitate to contact us.Learn More
Hi, my name is Deborah Abbott and I’m a full-time artist in Marietta, Ohio. My work is abstract expressionism and it contains an emotional quality that you do not find in other styles of painting. While I do still appreciate the descriptive, it does not allow me the freedom I receive from doing this style. I love having the inspiration coming from the wellspring within rather than having to look outside of myself. If you’d like to view more of my work go to www.djagallery.comLearn More
