Jayne is a writer. With her free time, she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize that the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

John Power
John Power's artistic vision is entwined with his love of the sea. After studying at the Art Students Leauge in NYC, John became a member of COGAP, the Coast Gaurd Art Program. For years, John has his studio in Longbranch, New Jersey, right on the Jersey shore. This easy access to the ocean led to his work becoming more expressive. His artistic journey now includes teaching drawing at the Morris County Art Association, in Morriston, New Jersey and participating in both one-person and group shows, including Waterworks at the Annapolis Maritime Museum where he won an award.
