Courtney Butler Allenson is a native Vermont artist whose love of nature, fishing, and all things trout is reflected in the carved block prints she creates. From original prints to stickers, totes, waxed canvas bags, and pouches, all of Courtney’s work is adorned with the fish she takes inspiration from. Courtney has designed fishy fabric for BeauTies, created logos for several companies, and illustrated a book about fishing.




Claire Clayman Geer, fine artist & graphic designer, has lived in Vermont since 1974. With over 35 years focused mainly on graphic design, illustrative sign painting, and marketing, her return to creative art since 2006 has added new dimensions and happiness to her life, which she wants to share. Claire describes her paintings as follows: 

“The emphasis of my work is on the fluid quality of watercolor and the exploration of the spontaneous and accidental. The inspirations for my paintings come primarily from my 'backyard,' with an amazing view of the Adirondacks, surrounded by the crisp bright colors of the Vermont seasons. My paintings consist of watercolors and what I call 'watercollages,' in which pieces or excerpts of painted areas are juxtaposed with each other to create images with a sense of depth and play."
