Born and raised in rural Indiana, David Varnau grew up appreciating the lyrical in nature all around him. A wide-eyed, nature child, he developed an eye for the subtle and sometimes striking beauty of everyday moments and encounters in his environment. While pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Loyola University of Chicago, Varnau found himself fascinated with watching people of all ages and races in a large urban center and was intrigued by the language of the body as it expressed the range of human emotions.
“My decision to spend a year abroad in Rome during my junior year stimulated a lifelong love of classical sculpture. Then, upon completion of my degree, my work in psychology as a rehab counselor provided me with valuable insights into the vulnerable side of human nature.”
While receiving post-baccalaureate training in the field of prosthetics at UCLA, Varnau gained an in depth education in human anatomy and movement. This launched a rewarding career of serving amputees for more than 35 years and Continue reading

Pam Kueny Taylor is a mixed media artist living on the beautiful Whidbey Island; just a hop, skip and a jump from our little town! She has been creating works of art as long as she can remember.

These bird creations are the result. They incorporate many of the elements that she has always loved through her many years of creating.
Most of the birds are vintage, hand carved, and hand painted. Many of the fine details Continue reading
