Wild Caught Glass Creations
Billie Coursey Lookingbill is a Maryland native, and currently lives in Woodsboro, MD with her husband, Ron. Billie’s faith in Christ is intrinsically intertwined with her unexpected journey into the art world. Six or seven years ago, partly due to her own poor choices in life, she found herself in a season of deep, painful loss and difficult circumstances - her life felt like a million broken pieces. She spent hours walking beaches, collecting sea glass, and talking with God. She searched YouTube for videos of how to display the glass, and discovered videos demonstrating how to make art using broken, crushed and cut glass embedded in resin. The way the light danced through the glass shards mesmerized her, reminding her that Jesus’ light shines through our brokenness. God gave her a new and unexpected purpose as a glass artist. Broken into beautiful is His specialty!
She’s best known for her bird and marine life pieces. She loves working with Ron, who is a gifted woodworker, and he often repurposes antique windows and reclaimed wood into frames for her glass “canvasses”.
Ashley Gonzalez from Freedom Aces is a native of Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania and currently resides in Parkton, Maryland. She is an elementary art teacher by day and artisan by night. She obtained her Bachelor and Master’s Degree’s in Art Education from Kutztown University in 2009 and 2013.
Ashley has been creative in every way possible since she was a little girl. Creating is her way of life! Her grandfather was a carpenter and her father can build and create anything imaginable. She loves creating hand stamped, recycled and eclectic jewelry inspired by life’s invigorating moments. Each piece is unique with a rustic and imperfect look, showing the love and time put into each hand stamped letter and design choice. Each piece is hand assembled and designed by Ashley herself.
Ashley’s greatest satisfaction is creating one of a kind pieces that can bring inspiration, peace and joy to others.
Beech House Woodcraft
Ritch Taylor makes cutting/serving boards and unique but functional furniture. He tries to make every piece as a unique, one-of-a kind or, at the very least, a very small batch item. Making things by the pallet load bores is not Ritch’s style. He enjoys working with Old World techniques and modern conveniences. His passion is using obscure wood species yet still see and adore the natural beauty of common Red Oak. From cutting boards to coaster, you will only find one-of-a-kind items made by Ritch!
He started taking my woodworking seriously about three years ago, but have been working with wood for 11+ years. In his spare time, he plays the guitar, but no singing for this guy!
Just A Phase
Briana Pittman of Just a Phase Design Co was born and raised in Hanover, PA. She currently still resides in Hanover with her partner, Rob (who happens to be her biggest cheerleader and assistant in her creative ventures). When she is not working her normal 9-5, she is always making something…party decorations, cakes, or new products for her business.
Briana took some time to research the best materials and techniques to ensure she mastered the craft before launching Just a Phase Design Co in July of 2020. Shortly thereafter, she added genuine leather earrings to the mix which quickly became her most popular product. She loves making items that make women of all ages look beautiful; whether it be a hair bow for your little one or a statement piece of genuine leather earrings for the ladies! The name Just a Phase was inspired not only by the moon phases, but also, regardless of what “phase” of life you’re in, she has something for you! Her goals for the future are to add new product lines for both women and men of all ages.
In spare time, she loves to travel to different areas to experience the food, art, culture, and nature. Her favorite thing to do when not working or creating is attending concerts.
Deborah Nell Art
Deborah Nell is a native of Southern California who currently resides in East Berlin, Pennsylvania. She is a prolific painter who began to paint at the age of eight. She learned to paint portraits in oils as she stood alongside her father, Herman Sillas, as he painted also in oils at his easel. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Design from UCLA in 1981 and a Master’s Degree in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling from Trinity College of Graduate Studies in 1986.
She is known for her acrylic, spiritual, faceless paintings which she paints on Yupo paper and stretched canvas. She chooses not to pre-plan her paintings but rather lets the acrylic ink and acrylic paint suggest an image as it is either being manipulated or flowing on the canvas. Her paintings on canvas are embellished acrylic pour paintings that begin as paint that is poured onto the canvas. She uses a two- step process where she paints in more detail once the poured paint has dried. Her paintings are in many private and corporate collections throughout the country as well as Europe, Canada and Australia. She has many of her art greeting cards at the Red Barn Boutique as well as some smaller paintings. Deborah also is the artist who paint Red Barn Boutique's window murals and leads the paint nights there. She is a full-time artist and loves her job.

Wired Up Customs
My name is Carrie, I am just a small town farmgirl, wife and mother of 4(and 2 step-kids). I am a firm believer in putting your best effort into everything you do. It's how I was raised up by my amazing parents, along side my 8 brothers and sisters. I use that work ethic instilled in me to create good quality works of art that you are sure to love.
I have always love collecting stones and oddities along the creek when I was little. That carried over into my teen and adult years with beadwork and wire wrapping. I love
working with copper wire, stones, clay and resin (or anything else that I find intriguing). Most people select their stone purely for the associated metaphysical and spiritual qualities, while I hand select each and every stone simply because I like it! I let the stone spark my creativity to see what it will become.
My faith and my family are my priority, and I'm very blessed to have the opportunity to be home with my kids. Every sale I make helps me to be able to do just that. So a huge thank you to everyone that helps to make this dream possible!
