Meet The Artists
Deco and Dice Accessories
Lena Stuart is one of the owners of 3 Gear Studios. She routinely practices a variety of art forms such as acrylic and oil painting. Her main hobby is creating whimsical jewelry under her brand Deco and Dice. This Jewelry was inspired by her love of fake sweets accessories, a hobby she picked up from her time in Japan. Currently, she incorporates a variety of mediums into her art. Her signature collections pay homage to harajuku fashion, mori kei fashion, fake sweets, and more. All of her signature collections can be seen inside 3 Gear Studios.
Lena says, "Starting 3 Gear Studios has been a challenge but it has allowed me to follow my passion for creating. I love the freedom to play and experiment, creating art from a variety of materials."
My name is Robin Kinney, My mother, Roxy, was my first art teacher and I am proud to say that some of my paintings have been mistaken for hers. My grandparents taught me how to birdwatch, so it is no wonder that I have merged my two hobbies into a delightful series of paintings. More recently, I have begun a Children's Literature series of animal paintings -- beginning with a reference to Aesop with my "Slow & Steady" tortoise painting, and it's partner, "Wins the Race." Now that Roxy has retired, her gallery lives on in 3 Gear Studios run by her daughter-in-law, Lena.
Except where noted, all of the originals are painted with oils, on board or canvas. Originals, prints, greeting cards and coasters are available for sale at 3 Gear Studios. Pillows, fleece blankets, and other items are available at https://teespring.com/stores/robin-kinney-artist
I'm an artist who enjoys dabbling in a variety of media. From acrylics, to mixed media, to jewelry making, and more. My favorite themes right now include fantasy images, steampunk, sighthounds, and nature. For the time being, I have set aside quilt making, and am focusing on mostly the jewelry side of things. This could change on a whim.
