Shaylen Amanda Broughton (SAB) is a native of Richmond, Virginia. Broughton received her B.F.A. in Interior Design, from The Savannah College of Art and Design, in the year 2011. She spent two years working as Hospitality Designer for a large, Richmond-based design firm. While working there, she still followed her bliss, continuing her hand at painted canvases. Her work ranges from expressionist landscapes to abstract and out of this world. She explores the depths of human awareness by delving deep into black bottom oceans; ascending curiously towards infinite stars; and ultimately discovering the divinity and infinity within it all. Particularly, she works to convey the relationships between emotional memory [in which we find significance], and the physical world [in which we find presence]. Through bold, colorful expression, she captures the spiritual experience that is eagerly evoked from sense of Place.

In a city noted for its colorful murals, Hamilton Glass is one of our very own noted public artists. Find his artwork on buildings around RVA and around the world - or discover his smaller vibrant framed works at The LOCALshop for a piece of Richmond "to-go"!
Born in Philadelphia Hamilton Glass’s career as an artist stems from his architecture and design background. Despite working in the architecture field for 7 years, his passion for public art pushed him to start a career as an artist. Public art has always been a big influence and inspiration to Hamilton, because of its power to influence and inspire the surrounding community. With every opportunity he receives to create public art he try’s to convey a message, which connects his work to the community in which the piece lives.
What makes his work unique is the use of architectural elements with bright colors and sharp lines. The bright colors and unpredictable lines and shapes are used to convey a certain energy and movement in each piece.

Lamplighter Jewelry is a handcrafted jewelry label by Richmond based designer Emma Lalumandier. Many designs are spun off natural elements or inspired by wood.
“Lamplighter’s bullet line began with my husband John teaching me to shoot. I gathered the brass from my first shoot and John came up with the initial design (hammered disc bullet earrings). Since then, I’ve added many new bullet designs, always with three elements in mind: to reflect a woman’s femininity, beauty and strength.
I’m really proud to be a completely self taught jeweler who has turned a love for making unique jewelry into a family business.”
Inspired by New Orleans, influenced by the world, and crafted by hand, Happy Clay is the outflow of artisan Niki Buckley Crosby.

In this transformation maker and material work together to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional piece that serves, beautifies, and makes you Happy. Each piece of Happy Clay is finished with a hand-gilded flourish of 24 karat gold.
Fun, snarky greeting cards and colorful stationery created by Joe & Coleen!
Coleen and I started our little greeting card making empire, PaperFreckles in 2009 initially creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we eventually discovered was we did NOT enjoy creating custom invitations for brides and logos for small businesses. What we DID enjoy was laughter and silliness. So, seeing as how I’ve never fully matured into a functional adult* we thought we’d use my sarcastic, mid-brow** humor and illustrations and Coleen’s eye for detail to create snarky, funny greeting cards to poke fun at all of life’s little complexities. Our inspiration comes from the “way too serious” world around us, our silly day-to-day banter and sometimes way, way too much coffee.
