“I live, think, play, and am inspired by color,” says Kelly. “I cherish the colors in nature and surround myself with those colors. Along with color, I have always had a connection with animals — especially dogs and horses. It made perfect sense to me to combine them and create happy, energetic, touching, and telling animal portraits!”

Always working in assemblage and with extremely tactile materials, I find myself immersed in the process from scavenging for the objects, making the tiles, creating the composition, and finishing the assemblage or mosaic a joy,” says Vickie. “Adding found objects as the base or an integrated part of the mosaic adds to the interest and fun of the artistic journey.”

As a native Texan and longtime Arizona resident, Julia’s sensibilities are grounded in the American Southwest. The textural attributes of sanded paper and pastel sticks lend themselves to the arid magic of the desert, adobe, earth and boundless sky. She endeavors to capture those moments that have tripped some artistic trigger, and the pure pigments of pastel afford her the freedom to explore the Southwest landscape and wildlife. She is currently working on a series of plein air paintings made in her very own neighborhood.

Katie loves everything about oil painting and her artwork shows it! Katie’s paintings are full of beautiful color and dazzling light. They radiate the elation she feels when she’s creating. “For me, painting is pure joy,” says Katie. “It’s intense. It’s difficult. It’s all consuming. But, it’s always a joyous experience.”
