Jo Ann Campbell is originally from New Jersey.  She retired from a Nuclear Power Generating Station located in New Jersey.  After retirement she lived in Arizona for number of years.  Always full of adventure, Jo Ann and her husband left Arizona and traveled about the USA in a motor home ending up in Newport, Or in 2002.  Jo Ann enjoys gardening, traveling, genealogy, crafts, and her hand at watercolor painting. 

Mary Young has been creating fused glass art for ten years. The constant surprises, playing with color, and making happy things are the best part of glass projects. The interest in glass started with her Father, who bought a glass kiln to experiment with. It just took off from there: exploring, trying new techniques, and just playing around.

Mary has lived in Newport for eleven years. She grew up in Seattle, WA and lived in Portland, OR before moving to the beautiful Oregon Coast. She has been a member of the Yaquina Art Association since 2007. Right now she is currently serves as an officer on the Board of Directors.

Under the name Whimsy Art Glass, Mary sells her glass work in the Newport Farmer’s Market, the Lincoln City Farmer’s Market, and the Itinerant Artist’s Marketplace in Lincoln City.
