“I love to create architectural art that blends nature with style, incorporating man-made mediums with nature’s own art. My tables startle the viewer by juxtaposing natural elements—copper, semi-precious stones and fossils—with man-made materials, compelling the viewer to actually touch the surface bringing in another sense besides sight.
My architectural art combines man-made materials with nature’s own art (marble, granite, slate, fossils). My use of color, texture and resin compels viewers to actually touch the surface of my pieces. I frequently use river stone, granite, marble, copper, shell, tree bark, semi-precious stones and fossils in combination with man-made materials to create functional art pieces that convey nature’s peacefulness.
Gretchen is a long-time artist and instructor with the Sedona Arts Center (and one of the most popular). Known for her figurative work, Gretchen works from life to capture the movement and expression of her model. Using colorful with spontaneous brushwork, her painting often seems to dance with her model as she captures the figure in a moment of joyful, costumed spontaneity.
For almost 40 years, Lydia Dillon-Sutton has been using the ancient process of batik, painted with hot bee’s wax and procion dye baths. Beginning with woven cloth, Dillon-Sutton marries the materials using line, color and moving forms, layer upon layer, into substance— a substance that conveys her understanding of the Native American Community.
Known for her creative bronze sculptures and beautiful jewelry, Deanne has led a storied career in the arts. She often looks at the world in a three-dimensional fashion featuring Ravens, Shamans and fanciful critters combined with antique objects such as type writers, roller skates and old books.
