Piece by Piece Artists

The Piece by Piece Artists below have progressed through the Piece by Piece class offerings and certificate program demonstrating their perseverance and skill.  They are now engaged with the Piece by Piece social enterprise. Artists have the opportunity to create and produce both personal and commercial work.  Some artists in the program chose not to sell their work publicly, it is their choice. For those that do wish to sell their work, their profiles are presented below.
