Sage Boyd

At 4 years of age, an artist was born. With her first coloring book, Sage discovered her love of color and learned to draw by copying the pictures.

As an adult, Sage studied under several renowned Spanish and American impressionists, learning how high key colors and impasto brush strokes make a painting come alive.

A resident of Tucson, Sage shares, “My favorite subjects are the barrios, our old Mexican neighborhoods. Their ancient pueblos call to me. I can’t resist their dilapidated doors and walls! They’re so much fun to paint!

P.S. I also love painting horses!


Marie Green

Oil paintings by Marie are done in oil on canvas. Early in the 1960’s, near Kanab, Utah began the discovery of beautiful broken shards of Anasazi pottery with amazing painted patterns - like treasures, gifts from the earth. When pottery breaks, they are sadly discarded since they are no longer functional and these beautiful pots and bowls become part of the earth. They were born of the earth, and return to the earth.


Sheryl Haupt

Sheryl is a jewelry designer and enamelist who creates colorful works of art in glass and silver. Each creation is unique and handmade in her Green Valley Arizona studio. She primarily works with cloisonné but sometimes uses plique a jour and champlevé enamel techniques. Her work focuses on the feminine and nature with an emphasis on beautiful vibrant colors and patterns. Often she weaves symbols into her work to give them deeper meaning. Sheryl also teaches cloisonné enameling in her studio as well as workshops throughout the U.S.

 


Yevette Louie

I have always been drawn to color, bright shiny colors always get my attention. I am a multimedia type of person, I do watercolors, make jewelry, photography, lettering, and am learning copper enameling. Working in glass has been what grabs me and doesn't let go. More often than not I leave the house intending to be back in a couple of hours but once I start working with the colorful glass, especially dichroic glass, the next thing I know I've been at the studio for 8 hours.

I started working in glass nearly 4 years ago. I took a class, learning how to cut glass and use the kiln and soon I was hooked. I first made small plates, then onto big platters, then I started to make jewelry and play with dichroic glass. The dictionary says that dichroic glass is made by stacking layers of glass and micro-layers of metals, which gives the glass shifting colors depending on the angle of view, but for me I think it's just magical. The vibrant colors, the mesmerizing patterns all draw me in and keep me coming back for more.


Debbi Lynn

My art, as in my life, has always been about taming chaos—simplifying the complex. I look at a canvas and see something that comes to mind and often don’t know from where!  It seems to me like every piece has some element of sarcasm or truth—what we wish to see and what is true.  I believe my art reflects my constant introspection and struggle to find the truth in every situation. At the highest level, I set out to create art that incorporates the subtleties of conflicting thoughts in my mind -  images that expose a quiet conflict—perhaps the conflict of aging vs beauty or love vs lust.

 


Dell Madelyn

“Of all the possible outcomes, I never expected to become an artist. What changed for me? I realized that we are all artists, that we all have an inner voice that cries out for expression. The only thing stopping me is that word ‘no’. The journey for me has been in finding the ‘way’ to express my inner voice, while suppressing the ‘no’ that stalks my creative process.”

“Polymer is a fabulous material to work with. Made from plastic softened into clay, polymer is low tech, pliable and easy to work. The only limitations are the ones I set for myself, that ‘no’ again… The possibilities are boundless…” Dell is currently working polymer to resemble fabric, stone and pottery. Her works are predominantly abstract although some of her work is mildly representative. She often mixes her polymer with fused glass, worked metal, sand paper and just about anything else that will provide texture and opposing color. She is an unashamed metal collector and will pick up from the ground any metal worthy of her collection of art ‘elements.’


Joni Olson

Color has taken on a new meaning through the influence of the Mayan and Spanish cultures and trips to Mexico and Guatemala cemented my desire to expand my color-consciousness. I have learned to cast off traditional combinations in favor of what used to appear wild and seemingly discordant mixtures. Colors I once viewed as too bold and “clashing” I now see as inspired and eclectic. The concept of colors “clashing” seems a poor invention!

The unusual marriage of symbolism such as ancient petroglyphs and vibrant colors makes each one of my creations a true labor of love.

These one-of-a-kind earrings and necklaces are entirely hand painted on light weight brass. Painting under magnification allows meticulous attention to detail and precise blending of colors.


Hermelinda Romero

I started my professional involvement with photography in 1989 after showing my nature photos to Terry Leet, a Parsons School of Design interior designer, and my employer at that time. He decided to send me to school to enhance what he saw … a good eye for light, space, and design. In exchange, I photographed his home interiors and his furniture design creations. 
 
As I look back, Terry sending me to school was one of those moments that stands out in my mind and changed my course as a photographer. I went on to study photography and black and white darkroom processing at the Florida Gulf Coast Art Center.


DeEtta Taube

The appeal of color, form, and texture is irresistible to me. I look for it in my surroundings, on my walks, on the ‘art dates’ I take to see what other people do.  Inspiration comes from all these things. When I see things that won’t let go of my gaze, I know it’s making me happy, telling me a story, mystifying me, or arousing memories. I try to bring that sense of joy or intrigue to my own work, to create something that holds the gaze of the viewer, brings them joy, or tells them a story.
