Didi Klepacz

Deirdre Klepacz - A Charmed Life - "Living outside the lines" has been Didi's mantra since she was a small child. It has taken her down the path of being an artist, musician, designer, crafter and mother. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of design and a co-creator of an art rock band. After falling in love with the drummer, she married and had two children (who she describes as spectacular !) while always finding an outlet for her creativity- children's clothing, gift cards, jewelry making, and knitting - always as gifts with the goal of bringing joy, happiness and love to the receiver. 

With her children grown, she now finds the time, inspiration and energy to fully devote herself to her craft and art - creating jewelry, watercolors, hand printed children's clothing as well as collecting vintage items that speak her language of whimsy and function. Her cross pollination of ideas creates new ways of looking at things- knitting can inspire jewelry, beads can inspire colors in artwork, and nature , family and love inspire all. She embraces the desire to bring happiness and surprise in little ways, to show there is always something new to be seen in the everyday, and to never take anything for granted. As a side note, due to her enthusiasm and encouragement of promoting Maddie's art,  "Reciprocity" was created by The Ahrensfelds. Her ideas, support and loyalty helped make the shoppe what it promises to be- the true meaning of Reciprocity!!

Deborah Kilcullen

 Maggie Ruley- moved to Key West in 1985 after receiving a BFA from University of Arizona.  Her first studio was on the corner of Thomas and Petronia Street in the Blue Heaven building where the restaurant is now.  It was so small she named it "Dragonfly, a tiny studio."  She created a body of work that incorporates the tropical motifs and colors found in Key West’s Island Life style.  The exploration of these styles continue to enthrall her and although she has since moved to her current larger location on Fleming Street, she remembers those days with great fondness.  She enjoys sharing stories of those days and welcomes all who stop in to meet her.  That was how we met Maggie who has since become the only professional art teacher Maddie has had!  We were lucky enough to stumble across her and sign up for classes where Maddie has learned many new techniques to further her creativity.  Maggie’s patient and loving ways, her shared passion for bright colors, and the comraderie of her students has encouraged Maddie to grow artistically.
