Liara

ARTIST

“Art of all kinds speaks volumes to me, it has always been a tool that I’ve used to express myself and tell my story. I take photos to escape from the craziness of life and I draw/paint to express myself in a way that makes me feel free. When I hold my camera, a pencil or a paintbrush everything else in the world vanishes and I can slow my thoughts and just feel whatever it is I’m feeling. Art is power. IG: @ara_n_wonderland”

Sophia El-Hayek | Phenic natural skincare

BRAND OWNER

“Our story at Phenic starts with Mediterranean olive oil; filled with skin healing nutrients and antioxidants, and an age old family recipe that was passed down through generations. My family in Lebanon has a grove of olive trees which are picked and pressed each year. We use the oil produced, “Liquid Gold” as our family secret to glowing Mediterranean skin. Our brand name Phenic, comes from Phoenician which describes the ancient Mediterranean people of Lebanon. The Phoenicians were merchants and traders sharing Mediterranean goods with the rest of the world. Following in this tradition, I want to share the wisdom of Lebanese skincare with the rest of the world.”

Brendan Lehman

VISUAL ARTIST

“Similar to meditation, I treat the process of painting as a practice of self awareness by observing and re-creating that which each passing moment has to offer. Through sporadic brush strokes and scribbles, faces and figures begin to appear and an abstract narrative starts to form.

After experiencing the impact creating art has had on me, I’m driven to inspire others to act on their potential despite their fears and push forward despite their pain. I believe that by audaciously and genuinely following our individual passion, we are given an opportunity to attain a long-lasting sense of fulfillment: fulfillment that is brought through finding and expressing what is already inside us, rather than consuming more of what is not us.” IG: @Brendan_lehman

Daisy Hernandez

VISUAL ARTIST

“I use painting as a form of visual storytelling, often stemming from my own childhood and adult experiences. As early as I can remember I was always fascinated with human behavior, existence, and my own intake of the world. Many of these subjects I was interested in I found difficult to explain in words, so I began drawing them instead. I was quickly told however that I should be drawing things that were more “pretty” like classic landscapes and portraits. Instead I did the opposite. My work takes on a more unconventional side of beauty that is represented through surreal and imaginative landscapes, figures, and faces. Just as creating work that is authentic to me has helped me discover who I Am as a person, I’m hoping viewers will experience the same feeling of discovery when I bring my ideas to life. I believe that there is an entire world of imagination that each of us has inside, but most are afraid of it, feel as though they’ve lost it, or don’t know how to show it. With my work my goal is to express this lost world while inspiring others to find theirs.“

Abigail Wolf

POTTER, GARDENER, HERBALIST

“I am proud to craft in the age of mass production. Machines produce with perfection and speed but they cannot create with artistry. My work celebrates my connection to a lineage of craftspeople making beautiful, handmade objects that enrich everyday life.

I am inspired by patterns in nature, random repetition and happy accidents. I’m a little obsessed with the expressiveness of form and the harmony between surface, shape and color. Every piece is a new exploration in beauty and function that is the heart of
craft.

Ceramics is an ancient art form, connecting the basic needs of cooking and eating with innate human creativity. I’m so happy that my work can be part of your celebrations and daily life.

Jeff Demers

PHOTOGRAPHER

“When it comes to photography, Jeff Demers isn’t a gear snob. He doesn’t geek out over the newest DSLRs, and he doesn’t really care about the shiny new toys being unveiled at CES every year. What DOES excite Jeff, however, is capturing the perfect moment in time. Photography’s never been a hobby for Jeff…it’s a compulsion, an obsession even. His need to connect with and photograph people is insatiable, and with a style that is equal parts simple, beautiful, classic, and real, Jeff not only strives to find the perfect shot, but to draw something out of each client that he or she may not have known was there—all to create a beautiful memory that will last a lifetime.
Jeff started his career over 20 years ago as a fashion photographer at a major Boston department store, a position that saw him collaborate closely with art directors and designers to create beautiful, eye-catching ads. Since then, Jeff’s established himself as respected freelance photographer, and his simple approach to photography lets him break through the technical constraints that bog down many photographers, allowing him to create everything from alluring portraits to robust product shots, and everything in between. And ever the consummate professional, Jeff knows the job is never done when the camera’s back in its bag—no matter the client, he devotes all his passion and energy to each project he accepts, creating a seamless, stress-free experience from initial consultation to final photo delivery”
