I am a jeweler and art to wear designer who drove up the mountain on a fall day about 13 years ago. I knew I was home.
I am grateful that I can soak in all the beauty of the universe and that I am able to share my creations with others.
Black & white photography has been my passion since i first started shooting (1971). By eliminating color, the image is removed one more step from ‘reality,’ allowing the viewer fewer attachments and expectations about what a scene ‘really’ looks like.
Sarah Foster was born in Sedona, Arizona and from a very early age she was involved in music and theatre.
Marsha’s interest in ceramics began during her art studies at Northern Arizona University in nearby Flagstaff. Her inability to “throw” a pot that weighed less than five pounds did not dampen her interest in working in the “mud.”

Steve Gray’s love of wood began when he would make trips to his grandfather’s wood shop. There he has fond memories of smelling the Black Walnut lumber, poking around in all the small parts drawers and handling the tools that his grandfather used on the lathe.

Judy Jaaskelainen resides in northern Arizona and is an Award Winning, Juried Member of Northern Arizona Watercolor Society.

An artist's critical eye of what transforms scenes into art.
Perspective. Balance. Shapes. Light. Shadows. Texture. Mood.
All that excites the visual and emotional senses.
I am an intuitive painter, one who paints entirely from imagination - never from photos. For me, colors, textures and forms are the most important elements in a painting, although I always feel inspired by the beauty of the landscape around me.
Lopez displayed an interest in the natural world around him as he was growing up. At an early age, he started sketching his observations and soon discovered his passion to create art.
All of my work is lamp-worked glass which means that it is made using a table mounted torch. I use different crushed and powdered glasses, clear and colored rods, as well as silver and gold fuming.
With the love of glass art, my wish is that my creations will bring as much joy to all those who use them as they do for me in creating them.”
A fearless color palette defines the work of Michele Cokl Naylor. She uses bold, vivid and seductive hues to prompt a reaction or to provoke a mood. Color, textures and unexpected patterns are the language she employs across a range of media. She makes hats, designs greeting cards, and works in mixed media.
Nature is the inspiration for my artwork. I see my colors, textures, and shapes in the environment around me. I like the contrast of the raw clay with the smooth colors of the glazes. My goal is to make my ceramics light in both weight and feeling.

His style has progressed from realism in the 1960's to representationalism in the 70's and to symbolism in the 80's.

I am more interested in the process of making pictures than in any specific subject matter or technique. I think of my pictures as visual explorations of reality."
I have been painting for over 25 years, but it was not until seven years ago when I took my first pastel workshop that I was immediately hooked on this medium. Then came a pastel workshop on "sanded paper" and that was it - the oil paints and brushes were put away
