Diane Michele (Wall) Volrath started
her art career in the media of sugar. She was the owner of Cake Creations for 16 years in Davenport, Iowa. After retiring
she became a multi-media artist living on the Mississippi River in Princeton, Iowa. Her studio Inspirational Images Photography,
is next door to her house where photography meets the stained glass world. Diane images photography on to glass and finishes
it off with stained glass. Visit www.cupandgallery.com to learn more about Diane and see her creations.
Rhonda LeMar-James spent 20 years managing a variety of venues in the hospitality
business. It was a fast-paced, exciting business where 2 days were never alike. That's where multitasking became so important!
A family responsibility took her from that world and into the world of art. She grows gourds here in Iowa and then uses them
to express herself. Along the path there were so many talented artists all searching for the best way to get their art noticed
by others. Diane and Rhonda intend to make that a much easier task with this website and these maps. To learn more about Rhonda
