Sarah of Lintu Art creates family and pet portraits that capture the moment. Work can range from marquetry style to oil and soft pastel realism to her annual Dogs Around the Lakes poster series. Lintu Art can create an affordable and beautiful portrait of your family pet or create an image to commemorate a group (reunion, club, marriage, organization).
Sarah also offers the option of having the artwork custom matted and framed so you receive a piece that is ready for display.
Sarah is a St. Olaf graduate and supporter and many local animal rescue groups.

Eddie Hamilton’s work is primarily acrylic on canvas but also includes mixed media on wood panel. His direct and playful work represents the emotion, energy, and interactions of people in their communities.
Eddie’s paintings are developed after research and reflection on the concept to be represented. Currently, his work is the result of studying gentrification and interpersonal human urban contact. Acrylics, ink, and crayon are used because of the ability to quickly apply and layer these materials resulting in a continuous flow of work in one sitting.
His visual representation of people and the urban setting has been greatly influenced by his childhood in California. His fascination with communities and the urban life is a result of living in vastly different areas as a child and an adult search for a sense of a community to call his own.
Eddie will be featured on MN Original on the following dates, times and channels:
3/23/2014 – 10:00 PM on Channel 2

When Emily Johnson started her business as a jeweler, she really didn’t want to work on wedding rings. Things changed when couples started looking for mixed metals and a less traditional minimalist style. Now most of her time is dedicated to designing and hand crafting custom wedding rings.
This article is just in time for Valentine’s day.
