Creator Highlights …

Artist: Carol Ann Keiser

Carol is an accomplished watercolor artist with formal training from Du Cret school of the arts. She also paints with and is mentored by established watercolor artist Kathy English at English Pines Studios.

She currently resides here in South Jersey with her husband musician Daniel Keiser. After several years of painting on and off because of caring for elderly parents, she’s moved to her current residence to focus on her gifted talent to paint watercolor. So much local talent right in our backyard!

Potter: Joseph DiMatteo

In addition to offering his elegant ceramic pieces for sale, Joe will be giving a full day of wheel thrown pottery demonstrations at the farm.

Joe has been a ceramics instructor at Ocean City Arts Center since 2013. He’s long been inspired by Asian pottery, including Japanese tea wares of all influences. His work is an interpretation of these and forms from nature.

See you on the farm!
