TWO ARTISAN MADE ACCENT PILLOWS BY KRISTIN DEHMER
When I was in high school, I started making purses and home decor items (like these pillows) using men’s ties. This evolved into my first business endeavour, Kee Keepsakes. I sold my handmade items in boutiques in Ohio and Indiana, created my own website and Etsy shop, and hosted special parties for sororities in college. I’ve always been an entrepreneur at heart and this sole proprietorship was my first step into the startup world.
ORIGINAL LYNN ELZEY “OVER THE RHINE” BATIK ON RICE PAPER
My mother is a very talented artist. She specializes in batik art, is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique. A tradition of making batik is found in various countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka, Philippines and Nigeria; the batik of Indonesia, however, is the most well-known.
She has been a batik artist for over 25 years, creating images of Cincinnati. She has exhibited her artwork at many art shows, galleries, and museums – including the Cincinnati Art Museum and Taft Museum. “I am excited to continue my exploration of my new rice paper batik technique. There are countless images of Cincinnati, both past and present, that I wish to record and of course, share with others”.
