Kristine Brockel A&M AZ

Artist Statement I’ve been an artist ever since I can remember… From painting rocks as a child, throwing pots in high school, to learning about “paints” in my professional years, one way or another, I’ve kept the “creative” in my life.

Some of the happiest days of my life begin when I greet the day with a paintbrush and a half-finished painting. It is like reading a book. Sometimes you know how it will end, sometimes you do not. It is the process that I enjoy. I have been engaged in the art process my whole

Layers of paint are applied with attention given to color values

Stacey McClure – CicadaGoods A&M AZ

Home is the smell of morning coffee. Slow mornings. Springs spent playing in the dirt, orange blossoms, the sound of bees, fresh cut grass, the winds shift, summer storms, creosote, wet earth, fall nights around a campfire of mesquite, warm spiced cider to warm your mitts, winter arrives, sugary cookies baking in the next room,

Susan Redeker A&M AZ

I come from early American families with traditional skills in the art of quilt making and have a collection of their works over time. The designs seemingly conservative still produce patterns for me to adapt to contemporary paintings. My abstract paintings reflect the structure and movement of quilts though my materials and intended decorative use
