Harmony Deco

“Harmony Deco” by Holly P.

Harmony Deco is one of those unfortunate souls who never really reached her true potential due to her inability to focus and commit to one passion.  As both a gifted artist and accomplished musician, Harmony was offered scholarships to both Juilliard and Rhode Island School of Design, but she agonized over the choice and ended up going to neither.  She eventually found peace by combining her talents.

Now Harmony designs unique interactive art pieces that create musical sounds when touched or blown.  She uses a variety of materials like copper, smooth wood and glass.  Her most popular pieces are mobiles made of hanging chains.  When blown by the wind or stroked, the chains make an eerie rattling sound, that make them perfect for Halloween décor.  Harmony sells her creations at local festivals and farmers’ markets.  She is easy to spot since she always wears a black bowler hat like the ones worn by her all-time favorite composer, Giacomo Puccini.

Myss Story

“Myss Story” by Erin T.

Myss Story is an artist who dabbles in many mediums.  She is drawn to stories, her own, her family’s, her friend’s, just any stories.  She initially enjoys transforming these experiences into stories or poetry to be shared with others.  Often she finds while developing these stories in written or oral form, she is also visualizing it.  Mixed media is often her go to medium, whether it be on canvas or in a journal…she loves playing with paint, paper scraps, pens, ink, etc.

Initially, Myss Story did this as a form of therapy.  She began to learn so much about herself and others she loved through storytelling, poetry, and painting but has recently considered sharing her work with others.  She’s not clear how that will come to be but she feels a need to share her work with others.

Myss Story’s beret is beautiful.  It’s multi-colored but a bit tattered.  It was handed down from her Grandmother and holds sentimental value.  She finds inspiration from her beret.  In moments where she lacks inspiration, she is able to find it in the texture of the knit wool yarn, and can duplicate that on a canvas.  The scent of her grandmother makes her think back to the stories of her childhood and the way the beret gives her confidence by simply sitting upon her head is like the simple words of a poem upon paper.
