Walking the show at Paradise City, you may come across an artist braiding leather for the strap of a handbag,
sketching out a concept for a commission, carving wood or sewing trim on a jacket.
This is one of the little pleasures of Paradise City. Not only do you meet the artists and talk to them about their work, but you also
may get a glimpse of the technique and thought process behind each piece of art or craft.
Verne Jidong Yan is a second-generation master of
the ancient Chinese art of silk embroidery.
Using hairlike silk threads, Yan meticulously practices the art
of 'double-side embroidery', a very complex and timeconsuming
craft much revered in his native China. His
thread paintings are even more impressive once
you've seen him work! Visit Booth 121.
Jeffrey Hayes is a realist painter, working in oils, who sometimes works in miniature -
requiring the use of a magnifying glass to see the brushwork! One of his passions is world cuisine, and many of his
paintings describe food and serving implements in breathtaking detail.Booth 109.
