Painter and Jewelry Artist

K. Daphnae Koop is a painter and jewelry artist whose work focuses on the color, texture, and character of the natural materials that are her inspiration. Her paintings are mixed media on carved wood panels. They are non-representational; texture, color, and simple forms are paired with titles that suggest, but do not impose, the theme or subject of the painting.

Shelley Caldwell

Minnesota Award Winning Artist

Studying liberal arts and graduating with honors, Shelley Caldwell received her Associate of Arts degree from Ridgewater College of Hutchinson, MN in 2012. She then continued her studies at Minnesota State University, Mankato (MNSU), where she earned an art department scholarship and graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (concentrating on drawing and painting) in 2015.

Growing up in Chicago in a family of writers, editors and educators, my art early on gravitated toward books. In college I discovered the art of etching, a process of drawing, printing and making editions. Since then, my life’s work has taken me from the Midwest to California and finally to Minnesota, with most of this time spent designing, illustrating and writing books, and working at the art of printmaking in my home studio. I also worked for thirty-one years as the art director for Hazelden Publishing, retiring early in 2013. During this span I also wrote and illustrated several children’s books of my own, and illustrated many others for Hazelden and other publishers. Artist Statement My goal as an artist is to communicate the healing power in the beauty of our natural world by creating art that helps people connect with this world in whatever environment they live.  This connection is available to all of us when we learn to focus on the world as it is under our feet, right in front of our eyes.
