As an artist, I often take on every creative project I can get my hands on. I’ve frequently mentioned how this can be a multitasking (as well as a marketing) nightmare for me. Thanks to this brilliant aspect of overburdening myself, I am fortunately able…
Art Happens!

In spite of school budget cuts and slimming programs, the Sedona Arts Center’s School of the Arts just wrapped up a three-day Arts Immersion with middle-school students at West Sedona School. This year Vince Fazio, the director of the School of the Arts at the…

Ego Inspired

It’s time to kick off the New Year with new inspiration! Every year, millions of people resolve to do something new or unique. They decide it’s time to shed some pounds, eat healthier, exercise more, create more or find more time to relax. Instead of…

Alas! I’ve returned from my fantastic voyage across the country and it’s good to be home. Nothing compares to the awesome beauty of Sedona. Don’t get me wrong, Hilton Head Island was a spectacular get-away that was inspiring and relaxing all in one. But there’s…

Greetings, everyone! I have to admit that I’ve missed you. Now that I have returned from my sabbatical, it’s time once again for me to get into gear and get busy with the Sedona Plein Air Festival. This is year eight for the Sedona Arts…

“Color”

Imagine your world in monotone. Go ahead, close your eyes and see everything in varying shades of gray. Envision every flower and blade of grass, every red rock and sunset – without color. Now reverse that. When we think of the visual arts, we often…

Art should never be painful torture or likened to walking headfirst, eyes closed into an ocotillo. It should be as easy as pie – simple and distilled through a joyful expression of the self. In a perfect world, creativity and productivity get married and have…

I’ve had an eventful and spectacular past few weeks/months. You may have even noticed this due to the tumbleweeds and dust blowing around this blog. The fact is, I’ve been busy designing catalogs, ads and posters for the Arts Center while getting extra creative before…

“Beautiful Sedona”

There’s no doubt whatsoever, that Sedona is a beautiful place. Four million people visit Sedona each year to bask in the magnificence of the red rocks and spectacular high desert surroundings. For some, this beauty translates into a spiritual experience, while others find the tranquility…

Time sure flies when you’re having fun, doesn’t it? It also flies when you’re working on hard deadlines, major projects and when you’re just trying to catch up with life. I’ve been spending the last few weeks doing exactly that (deadlines; projects; life). When I…

Art can be recycled, replaced, redesigned, and transform into innumerable forms by the artists who create them. Those same remarkable works of art can then find their way into a home, business, gallery, or square. And sometimes, those very same pieces will take journeys unlike…

Have you ever noticed that art sometimes mutates right before our very eyes? We’ve seen art recycled, replaced, redesigned and transformed into countless forms. From sculptures that come alive, to drawings that become digital animations our art can be anything we want it to be.…

What defines art? Who determines what is art and what isn’t art? Why are dots sometimes more valuable than portraits, while sculptures of giant titanium screws can out-match the classics? These are questions we’ve asked over time that may never truly have a diplomatic answer.…

This week something new and magical is happening in Sedona. (Just like any other week in this beautiful wonderland, right?) The first Roundabouts Art installations will make their appearance in just a few days! Ken Rowe and Kim Kori were the selected finalists in the…

What do you think of when you hear the word artist? If you are an artist, the definition could include words like: blood, sweat, tears, solitude, failed works, joyful successes and so much more. If you aren’t one, you might imagine someone eating grapes, lounging…
