Here is the bio for Peggi -
My name is Peggi Wolfe and I live in Natchez, MS with five cats (Cammie, PK, Jean, Jacques and Sweet Baby James), and a truly wonderful dog (Tippi, the Magnificent). My beloved husband of almost 25 years, Chris, died of lung and brain cancer in early 2015. I was born and raised in New Orleans, but, like so many others, my home in New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when I was 55 years old. We had evacuated to Natchez, MS before the storm and when we saw our house had been flooded to the roof, we decided to stay in Natchez. I was working at Tulane University Health Sciences Center when the hurricane struck and I continued to work at Tulane in New Orleans for a little over 3 more years (drove to New Orleans on Monday, spent the week in NO, drove back to Natchez on Friday for the weekend). I have been a medical research scientist for 35 years, most spent at Tulane, the last 9 years of it as a faculty member doing research with adult bone marrow stem cells. I also spent a year and a half in London at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital setting up a lab for their Chest Dept in the late 70s. Now, I am a Global Programs Specialist at Alcorn State University in MS. I work a lot now with computers and digital graphics, grant writing, and videoconferencing as it relates to international education, experiential learning and Study Abroad. (I enjoy working with students and encouraging them to expand their horizons and to consider going to another country for some of their college education. It benefits them so much in the long run). I have been a photography nut for years and I really got into digital photography. Through digital photography, I learned a bit about digital graphic editing. After tinkering with that for a few years, mostly just for my own enjoyment, I got into fractal art. (Basically, all forms in nature are fractals). I had first discovered fractals back in the mid 1990s. I even tried one of the free software programs available at the time, but it was an alien interface and I had no idea what I was doing, so I promptly forgot about fractaling…until September of 2008. Somehow, I got hooked on them again and downloaded all the free fractal generating software I could find. Well, needless to say, I learned a bit more on how to use the software and I have been fractaling my fool head off ever since!! It’s a wonderful art form of infinite variety, incredible colors and marvelous lighting, and it’s a lot of fun to do. I have my art on several websites: Deviant Art: http://wolfepaw.deviantart.com/gallery/ RedBubble: http://www.redbubble.com/people/wolfepaw/portfolio Fine Art America: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/peggi‐wolfe.html CafePress: http://www.cafepress.com/wolfepawprintsdecorandgifts (This site has lots of different products, like jewelry, clocks, mugs, blankets, shirts, business card cases, jewelry cases, with my fractal art on them).
Rand Johnson - Comic book artist has earned his way (and paid his dues) through “art” for over 35 years - working as a graphic designer/illustrator for ad agencies, design studios, marketing groups and publications. A keen interest in tattooing eventually led to an abrupt career change in 1993. Rand traded in his pens, brushes and paper for tattoo machines, ink and skin - and opened the Cherry Creek Tattoo Studio in rural Minnesota. His reputation for fine artwork and attention to detail spread quickly, putting his remote studio on the map and keeping Rand very busy. Rand has many of our designs under his belt including most of the Rebel Canes.
