Rich & Linda Gehris - Mixed Media

The first crafter we would like to introduce to you is Rich & Linda Gehris. Rich & Linda’s company, Gehris Tile,  not only displays the latest trends in the industry but also has a great selection of the traditional tiles. From the setting materials to the grouts to the sealers, the quality is there. Whatever your needs or budget, interior, exterior, bath, kitchen, sunroom, porch we can design and install your project. You can see more of their work on their website HERE.

Bill Hinchliffe : Photography

Next, we would like to introduce to you Bill Hinchliffe. Bill has been shooting nature as a hobby for 25 years. His “regular job” kept him on the road all over the US and Canada for most of his adult life. This created opportunities to visit countless parks, refuges, and habitats, to collect a wide variety of images that represent a good portion of North America’s wildlife. It’s absolutely amazing what he has been able to capture! See more of Bill’s work HERE.

Chris & Nancy Adamo : Jewelry

Last, we would like to introduce to you Chris & Nancy Adamo. Chris & Nancy create unique hand-crafted jewelry. They have several collections, including: “Yoga Inspired”, “Ocean Inspired” & “Inspired Jewelry” showcases. You can see more of their beautiful work HERE.

You will meet these crafters mentioned above along with almost 200 other crafters from around the state of Florida and the United States.
