Welcome to Gallery II

Gallery II is home to co-owners Pat Hunter and Janice Stevens. In its early days, the gallery featured Pat’s paintings and art studio Janice focused on gallery management, marketing, and bookkeeping.

When Janice, armed with a degree in English and having a passion for writing, suggested they put their creative energies together, an entirely new creative outlet opened up to them and they began collaborating on writing and illustrating books.

Now you can enjoy both Pat and Janice’s work through Gallery II and beyond. When they aren’t working on a new book, both find time to teach others the skills and crafts they have honed as well as taking on commissioned and freelance work.

Commissioned/Freelance Works
