Breahna Arnold

Sag Harbor artist, Breahna Arnold has been taking the Hamptons by storm. She combines style and functionality in most everything she crafts.  Her passions range from sketching, painting, mixed media collage, hand painting tee shirts, but what she most excels at is her jewelry that is 100 percent original and hand crafted.

Hampton Photo, Arts and FramingBreahna caught the art bug at an early age when, bored with ordinary playthings she made her own toys out of what ever she could get her hands on. She later attended Fashion  Institute of Technology where she studied fashion design. She has certificates in Jewelry Making and Wax Modeling from Studio Jewelers Ltd  where she honed her metal cutting and 3D formation chops. In 2005, as a newly single mother, the then 22 year old moved from the Manhattan back home to her mother’s. Her mother reminded by her daughter’s diligence and creativity suggested to her to start making jewelry. 5 years later Ms.Arnold’s talent has taken blossomed and continues to flourish nearly every day . Her influences stem mostly from daily life and enjoys making things traditionally with her own two hands. Causing everything she makes to resonate with eccentricity.

Breahna’s  jewelry is made from an assortments of metals. Her self appointed nickname is pennies. One of her most talked about necklaces was made of pennies with abraham cut. She even made jewelry from silver plated pots and pans. Every piece has a primitive organic feel

Ms.Arnold has sold her jewelry in several  boutiques and galleries through out the Hamptons.   She has also been invited to participate in fairs and art shows. A multitude of happy clientele...echo a ringing endorsement for Breahna's body of work not confined to any medium, yet she executes her craft with surgical precision and steadfast attention to detail.

Taking time from her jewelry, Breahna also creates large mixed media collages made from recycled materials. She also loves drawing both from imagination and life. She often attends life drawings classes and will often ask a friend to sit for her.
 
Last year Ms.Arnold discovered another skill, stencil making. She draws images on cardboard cuts them out with a small blade and paints them directly on fabric. These garment obtain a professional aesthetic while still feeling handmade and one  off.

You can find her more avant garde work at Gallery Merz located on Sag Harbor main street. She has beautiful beaded work at Collette store also located on Sag Harbor main street.

Photography by Laurie Barone-Shafer
Nowadays just about anyone can take a good quality photographs with a digital camera. Or take a few hundred pictures and the chances are few will be good, and even one or two outstanding.

Here are a few tips, tricks and techniques on how to make art print poster ready photographs and print ready digital files. Don’t get overwhelmed, there is a lot of information here, but a lot of it is just intuitive. Well, a bit of patience will always help.

First thing – Photo Size

If you taking a digital photo of you family or friend the largest size you would print is usually 5 by 7 inches, maybe 8 by 10 at the most. Even small size digital photographs (2MB or less) are ‘good enough’ to create a decent print. But if you want to create prints that are 16 by 20, 20 by 24 inches or larger you need more pixels (in pixels 20 by 24 inches photo is actually about 40 times larger than 3 by 4 inches photo assuming they have the same resolution).

Learning to Paint with Watercolors

By Cindy Tabacchi

ImageWatercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
