My name is Lynn Campbell and I live in a small town in western PA. called Ellwood City. I am married and have 1 daughter and son-in- law and 5 grandchildren.( God has truely blessed me). I am a retired hairdresser. I did hair for 30 years and retired to help with daycare for my 5 grandchildren.After I retired I tried many things,stained glass, flower arranging,sewing, but , I started painting about 13 years ago and have barely put my brushes down. I traded a hair brush for a paint brush and couldn't be happier. I am a certified onestroke instructor and I also teach decorative painting ( or tole painting if you prefer).I recieved my teaching certificate in November of 2005. I am a member of the Society of Decorative Painters and was lucky enough to have 2 ornaments that I painted decorate the White House Christmas tree in December of 2005, and I was invited to a reception at the White House with Laura Bush. That was an honor I will not forget. I hope you all will stop by my booth and talk awhile, I love to make new friends and share my love of painting.

Melissa R. Kulbitsky, Artist
My name is Melissa Kulbitsky. I have been painting or drawing most of my life. That talent combined with my love of animals has made them my favorite subject to put on canvas or paper. I am endlessly fascinated by the world we live in and saddened by the plight of our animal friends. I am also a mother of a 9 year old child and worry about the legacy that we willl leave to her generation. I hope to be able to use my art to bring awareness to the many dangers and issues that we all face.
