Candace Law is a full time artist in the Detroit area. After receiving degrees and working in other fields, she earned a BFA in Architectural Illustration, but found herself drawn to fine art. Her current body of work focuses on encaustic (hot wax) and mixed media, especially incorporating found objects.“Art for me is a means of communicating about our environment, our lives, sharing our experiences, and reflecting how they inform each other.” Her exhibits include several solo shows as well as numerous regional and national exhibitions—both invitational and juried competitions. Her work has appeared in Encaustic Arts magazine, as well as the Studio Visit publication, and is in a number of private collections, including at Detroit’s Historic Trinity Church.

Born and raised in Japan, Hiroko Lancour is a mixed-media artist with cross-cultural aesthetics between East and West. Her early education and career in information technology has added to her artistic expressions. Often methodical and process-oriented, Hiroko explores the concept of dichotomy by juxtaposing contrasting qualities such as Japanese/American, order/chaos, and intentional/accidental. She often employs the use of pattern, repetition, geometry and structural organization. Discovering underlining meanings in repetitive patterns and procedures has become one of her focal points.
Hiroko received her Master of Fine Arts (MFA) from Wayne State University in 2014. She has won various scholarships and awards including the Bud Bernstein Endowed Prize Fund at Wayne State University, first place for the John F. Korachis Scholarship at the Detroit Artists Market and “Best of Show” at the National Fiber Show at the Grosse Pointe Art Center. Recently, Hiroko was featured at Detroit’s historic Charles Lang Freer House in Detroit in a special exhibition titled, “Artist in Resonance: Hiroko Lancour at the Charles Lang Freer House.”
