strawberryluna is a wife & husband design, illustration, and printmaking duo. We illustrate and design our work and hand pull our silkscreen art prints and rock posters the old fashioned way; one color layer at a time with care and craft in our studio.
Working in this age-old process allows for a very hand on approach and feel to our work. We use non-toxic, water based acrylic inks, biodegradable emulsions, paper with a post-consumer recycled content that is made in the USA using certified eco-friendly and sustainable practices as recognized by international environmental organizations.
Our approach to our work is simple. We love clean, joyful, modern, and accessible design and artwork that appeals to those who consider themselves well-educated in art & design, as well as those who simply “Like what they like”, because we feel a strong kinship to the Mid-Century Modern belief that good design and art should
be available to everyone, for every home. We are firmly rooted in the DIY & Handmade movements and embrace the traditions of modern craft in every day life.
Based in Lititz, Lancaster County PA I am a full-time watercolor painter for 42 years. Specializing in realism and traditional subjects. I am known for my strong use of light.
I am a self-taught artist currently living and working in Pittsburgh, PA. I have been showing my work in galleries and festivals since 2008. In addition to fine art, I have illustrated 3 children’s picture books.
Like most of my work is inspired by the organic forms and textures of nature. In creating it, I continue to explore a personal technique that is analogous to the fluid geological processes that shape our environment. The painting evolves in layers, manifesting a kind of dialogue between my emotions and the chemical reactions of the materials.

Joshua Hoffman is an artist based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Best known for his abstracted plein air style pulling from a thoughtful study of light and color, he is inspired to capture and express the beauty within moments in time. Joshua’s process starts with creating a plein air representation, working from real life. Later, paintings are taken to the studio where additional layers of intense values, and hue of varying temperatures are added with thick layers of oil paint.
I am an environmentalist with a passion for storytelling. At a young age, I was gifted a camera which has become an extension of my eyes and a tool for me to become a visual storyteller in my home state and abroad. Throughout my time working in the National Park Service and with the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, I learned the significance of environmental education and the importance of protecting ecosystems and unique cultures that make up this planet. As a photographer, my hope is that my imagery helps people recognize the importance of their own relationship with the natural world and inspires them to make environmentally conscious decisions in their everyday lives. My displayed images are both on metal and canvas ranging in price from $40 to $850. My work is both landscape and wildlife in Pennsylvania, across the United States, and Ireland.
I am an Ohio based watercolor artist with a passion for creating art inspired by the outdoors. I find myself drawn to the beauty of nature, finding it everywhere from the quiet simplicity of tending my garden to the powerful experience of hiking mountain trails. These places and memories are captured in a style of realism mixed with a colorful and imaginative flare. The paintings she creates evoke feelings from the places she captures. She wants her work to be an inspiration to others, something they can look at and feel peace from.I paint almost exclusively with watercolor, but I enjoy adding opaque whites or ink outlines sometimes. My original paintings are mainly 8×10-12×16 inches in size. I do create my own reproductions, running the whole process of scanning, editing and printing my work.https://kimeverhardart.com/

Ray started taking commercially developed colored photographs over 30 years ago, resulting in several awards from local amateur photo contests. Over the next several years he attended local workshops and developed working relationships with two well-known local photographers picking up “secrets” that lead to his unique style.
Ray enjoys traveling and much of his subject matter is a photographic diary. He has the ability to see through the ordinary and mundane, creating art that pulls the observer into the body of his works. His work evokes memories of days gone by, idyllic scenes that beckon your call; and still life that allow moments in time to be captured and held forever.
Ray uses a 70 year old Graflex XL medium format camera, and develops, processes, mounts and frames all his own work. Prints are limited edition and available matted, or framed in black metal frames or vintage hand-picked frames.
