Who Are We?

Here I am mixing paster for a casting

Hi I’m Christine,  writer and artist and the older sister, which gives me the opportunity to go first in the ‘Who Are We?”. Here I am smiling in my  ‘studiolo’ ( my work is immensely enjoyable!)  as I mix a batch of plaster for a casting, the first step in making  sculptures.  After I have a plaster mold, I use the Venetian mask technique that I learned in Italy ( a particular way with paper mache) to make a breastplate that I write and paint on.

Please visit Christine Palamidessi Artist & Atman Catcher

I also have a wordpress blog: “Art is art. Everything else is everything else.”  On it I write about what else?  Everything else ( yoga, books, film, food)

My sculptures are  for sale on Saatchi Art

Smaller work for sale on Zatista

Pamela:” I live in Cumberland, MD with my husband, Brett, and dog, Rosie.  I began to make pysanky eggs about five years ago when I  learned the wax resist process at a Sacred Art workshop at the Priestfield Center in West Virginia. Since then, every year during Lent  I make my eggs.  It is a challenge for me because it takes a lot of patience, you are working with three dimentional designs and the area is small…….three things that are not particularly my style. When Easter rolls around  I pack up my kiskas and dyes and start to work on my many other projects.   I have a wonderful herb garden  and love to cook (Italian) and bake ( I worked in the baking industry for almost twenty years and was a specialist for eight bakeries in three states). My husband is a wine salesman so we enjoy traveling to the Finger Lakes Vineyards in NY .  But my true love is painting…… there’s just something about spreading colors on a canvas.  I haven’t done any serious painting for a long while , but now that I have traded my baking spatulas for a palette knife, I am using my pysanky eggs as inspiration for my recent paintings. “

    I truly enjoyed the two sister story of being artists together although different. Your website is moving and inspiring. Thank you, Anne
