Click co-proprietress Frances Smersh and encaustic painter Stephanie Hargrave have spent the last several months creating a beautiful body of work and having a hell of a lot of fun doing it.

June & July featured artist | Melanie Biehle

Melanie Biehle is our featured artist for June & July this summer, and we couldn't be happier.
