"When you reach the heart of life, you will find beauty in everything.” --Kahlil Gibran. ​​


As a digital artist, Genece Hamby best expresses herself by giving outward form to inward feelings of stillness, beauty and grace. She is profoundly drawn to introduce a quiet, yet passionate brilliance of color and light. Genece gives way to the sensual, feeling self when fully realized in form that yearns to emerge as something beautiful and soulful.

"In 2005, I began my journey as an artist and created Shibui Studio as my working space both online and offline. Shibui is a Japanese word that refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. Now, Shibui Studio has evolved into an art gallery located in Gillespie, IL with a passion for exhibiting contemporary art from local artists." -- Genece Hamby

Trish Frederick is a self-taught painter with the daily discipline of learning new acrylic painting techniques. She paints for the pleasure of creating something that inspires her imagination and awakens the artist within her.

Prior to becoming an artist, Trish has spent a big part of her life traveling the country with her husband. They loved discovering the mountains, the deserts, the wetlands...and the history of each of the places they visited. This has become most of the inspiration for her art.

Living in Las Vegas, NV for more than 20 years, Trish attended the University of Nevada. She also spent several years as a jewelry designer selling the pieces online and on a television shopping network.

Currently, Trish and her husband=are retired living in historic St. Augustine, FL. She spends all of her free time painting and mastering the art of baking...
