Be Inspired by the Unique Perspectives, Techniques and Passion of Three Local Artists


Joy Kreves - Mixed Media Artist

Kreves is a mixed media artist whose works explore the connections between language, psychology and landscape, exhibiting extensively at area galleries and museums. "Questions For a Tree", her interactive community project, was exhibited The Tulpehaking Nature Center Galleries in Hamilton, NJ. Kreves has been influenced by Dr. Glenn Albrecht's "New Language of the Earth" vocabulary and by Sister Miriam MacGillis' focus on connections between the health of the earth and of human communities. Kreves exhibits with the Animal Architects artists group, working with bees that she has gilded and moss that she has preserved and dyed. Kreves has a Bachelor and Masters in art from Illinois State University, then furthered her studies at The New School in New York City. Her studio is in Ewing, NJ near the Delaware River.


Charles Miller - Art Photographer

After a career in the theatre design and administration, Miller returned to his artistic side by focusing on art photography, while curating and exhibiting in many galleries around New Jersey. "Because I come to my photography from a theatre design background, I know that I do not know or follow all of the classic 'rules' of photography. But maybe that is part of what makes my work different. I look for beauty within the images that may not be readily seen....." Miller works in many styles from classic flower photographs to highly manipulated abstracts, digital art, and pop art images, on a variety of mediums including prints, canvas, metal, acrylic and fabric. Miller also has a line of clothing and accessories using his images in the designs. Miller has a BA and MS in speech and theatre from Kansas State College of Pittsburg and post-graduate work in educational theatre at New York University.


Mira DeMartino - Sculptor

DeMartino has a highly personal style using a trademarked sculpting technique she developed, called AlumixArt Mixed Media, which consists mostly of aluminum. She explores the area of modern spirituality and challenges her viewers to connect with their own potential and self-empowerment through art. DeMartino has a Masters in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland and an MBA from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Working mostly on commissions, her artwork can be found in private collections in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, Singapore and the United States.
