Equines and canines are the subjects of many of her paintings and drawings and this love has influenced the creation of her brand, The Pony & The Pooch, which is comprised of high-end stationery on recycled brown kraft paper.

Showcasing work by Melanie Angevine, Susan Sidwell, and Stephen Pullan IV. June BugShow features media ranging from papercutting, photography, to mixed media.

Even in this time of staying at home, there is never a dull moment in your back yard in the world of bugs, allowing us to study and observe their incredible relationships to us close up and personal. - Artist Susan Sidwell
