Artist Feature: Ripp Harrison

Ripp Harrison is an artist working primarily in colored pencil and watercolor paint (he also dabbles in ceramics and recycled metal sculpture).  He started working in pencil in college, doodling in black and white and has been doing this work for the last seven years.

Ripp creates his artwork at home with lots of input from his four legged editing crew and feels that his environment helps make his work entertaining. He takes custom orders and this will be his first year participating in the Bizarre Bazaar.
More of Ripp’s work can be found online on his website  or on Facebook.

Artist Feature: Laura Reaka

Laura Reaka creates artwork with acrylics on canvas.  She has been an artist all of her life, working as a graphic artist for 25 years.  She started LULU paintings four years ago and does her painting in an attic studio space in her home. 

Laura's favorite thing about painting is that people smile when they see her work and give her great feedback; she was once even told, "you made my day a little happier"!

This will be Laura's first year at the Bizarre Bazaar and she takes custom orders--more of her work can be found online in her Etsy shop and on Facebook.
