Dave Bigelow
Dave Bigelow

Dave Bigelow, Wood Artist Dave crafts exquisite, inlayed wooden crosses in his workshop on the edge of the unspoiled Sonoran desert. Gazing out into sacred landscape his hand is guided by inspiration and a sense of purpose. He feels he is living his calling, a calling which produces crosses that uplift the beholder. He chooses the finest hardwoods and crafts each creation to enhance the natural hue of the wood, intuitively knowing it will perfectly harmonize with its intended owner.

Julia Patterson, Pastel Artist As a lifelong resident of the Southwest, my sensibilities are grounded in the colorful heat and warm tones of summer. The textural attributes of sanded paper and pastel sticks lend themselves to the arid magic of the desert, adobe, earth, boundless sky. I want to capture a moment that tripped some artistic trigger in me, and pastels afford me the freedom to express my delight in the Arizona summer.

Allison Shock, Clay Sculptor From her tiny Three Star Owl studio near Papago Park, Arizona artist Allison Shock makes functional and sculptural clay pieces that look like they might jump off the table or bite. Convinced that hiking, birding, and gardening are great excuses for “getting out there and seeing who’s around,” Allison doesn’t consider herself a wildlife artist, but rather an observer who takes notes in clay.

Katie Stearns, Oil Painter Miniature moments of cool” is how Katie describes her artwork for the Summer Spectacular ArtWalk. “Art can be so transporting,” says Katie. “And, during Arizona’s long, hot summer, if you can’t physically get to cooler places, why not transport yourself through ‘cool’ art?! Katie enjoys painting still lifes, florals, landscapes, and portraits — both human and animal. Katie has been painting in oils since January of 2001.

Linda Zeien, Mosaic Artist My life is in pieces…. glass pieces, that is!  In 2010, I retired from a career as a physician to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming an artist. I have been doing mosaics full time since then. My training as a pathologist has helped me cultivate a keen visual sense and attention to minute detail and my mosaic pieces reflect this in the meticulous way in which they are made. I enjoy creating fun and whimsical designs and work almost exclusively with glass which provides me with a wide range of intense colors and the ability to cut pieces small enough to create fine detail. I feel as if I can practically “paint” with glass!
