Judy Johns
I graduated from the University of Detroit with a major in art. After college, I entered into my career near Detroit as an interior designer.
When I retired, I decided to move to Holland, Michigan. I had always loved the west side of the state and decided to make it my home. Then, after more than forty years, I once again picked up a brush and began to paint.
Much of my inspiration comes from the park behind where I live. The woods constantly change as the light filters through. Wildlife roams in abundance. I like to paint in a loose style that captures a moment.

Tanner Bosma
My name is Tanner Bosma and I just graduated from the Frostic School of Art at Western Michigan University in 2019. I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art Education with an emphasis in Painting. Creating art brings me great joy, but spreading the joy of creativity through teaching and encouraging is what I'm really passionate about.
I most often paint with acrylics, although I paint in a variety of styles. I focus mainly on non-objective abstracts, landscapes, and cityscapes. I am currently pursuing a blend between representational and abstract art and embracing the idea of looking at the world in a new way. This is not only exciting and exhilarating for myself, but beneficial to pass onto my students and show them the endless possibilities of self-expression.

Patricia Flynn
Through watercolor, I have found the perfect expression of my love of color and design. I began painting watercolors in the fall of 1998, after retirement from a career in teaching after retirement from a career in teaching. I have experimented with several different styles: realistic portrayals, floral samplers, impressionist plein air paintings, and an abstracted “imargination” style. I lately have gravitated to an organic sense of florals and vegetation. Art activities include board member of Holland Friends of Art, board member and President of the Holland Area Arts Council, Michigan Watercolor Society, Muskegon Museum of Art, the GRAM, and Arizona Watercolor Association and American Watercolor Society. I have participated in several of the downtown Holland public art exhibits, and have been in the Top Twenty of Tulip Time

Amy Peterson
As a former art teacher, I am beginning to explore my connection to art once again. Over the last two summers I’ve become interested in using soft pastels as a painting medium. I was introduced to soft pastel after taking an Art on the Meadow workshop at the Ox-Bow School of Art. The direct use of color and the boldness it facilitates make it fun to experiment with. Flowers and landscapes invite the use of intense color.

A resident of Allendale she also lived in Holland and attended workshops and lessons at Kalamazoo Institute of Art, Holland Arts Council, Lowell Arts and Freed Studio.

Jan (jAlida) Winiarski
I first learned the basics of art in formal art classes offered through the public schools. In 2000, my husband gave me an oil painting set as a birthday gift launching my present-day practice of landscape painting. Since then, I have learned much from other artists, both in classes and in the field. I now use a variety of mediums, and sometimes mix them to achieve the effect I seek. My artistic goal is to present a reasonable resemblance to any lovely scene which may be able to draw the viewer into the mood of the setting.
jAlida is my canvas name and logo. Alida was my grandmother, for whom I am named. Like me, Grandma Alida was also an artist. I am a past member of the Battle Creek Society of Artists, and currently am active with the Ottawa Shores Plein Air painters. Since 2008, it has been my honor to both display and sell works locally, and internationally through the internet.

Carolyn Stich
Art is truly a driving force in my life. I have owned a studio/shop in downtown Holland for 12 years. I have also enjoyed illustrating children’s books, drawing homes for real estate companies and architects, and completing commission artwork. I continue to look for creative opportunities in the community to find my inner artist. In 2015 and 2019 I was honored to be the Tulip Time Festival “Art in Bloom” poster winner in Holland, Michigan and have been in the top 20 for several years as a finalist.
