Multi-talented Arizona native Briggs is an accomplished musician as well as a gifted watercolorist; he performed with the Phoenix Symphony, among others, for several years.

His breathtaking mountain setting offers abundant inspiration for his elegant creations.
Bautzmann's paintings have shown in many East and West Coast galleries. She earned a degree in fine arts from Westminster College in Pennsylvania but did not originally work in the oils and watercolors that have now won her several awards. While working as a graphic artist in advertising she studied under noted painters Hans Axel Walleen, Gloria Malcolm Arnold, and Gunter Korus. By 1990 she had left advertising to pour her soul into painting. She moved to Arizona in 1994, adding desert scenes and flowers to her portfolio.
With a fine arts degree from U of Arizona and influences such as Whistler, Velasquez, Remington, and Gericault, Hambly has presented in galleries and juried shows from Laguna Beach to Cody, Wyoming.

A fifth-generation Arizona native, he has portrayed the horse and cowboy in his art since childhood: "I don't believe I could paint anything else, it must be in my genes."
A traditional oil painter of the old and contemporary West, Shaddix was a child of the Depression whose family moved from Oklahoma to California.

In 1960 he began a full-time career as a professional artist, where he has established himself firmly at the forefront of contemporary Western painters and enjoys working in other media, including sculpture. His award-winning work has shown in juried events such as the Celebration of Fine Arts in Scottsdale and the Phippen Museum Western Art Show and is collected nationwide.

He may have been born in Frankfurt, Germany, but thoroughly American Willison presents a vivid and whimsical take on the world of Wild West heroes. His fiery colors and sometimes humorous approaches to his subject matter find their inspiration in the vintage days of Hollywood cowboys.

His work has appeared in a number of juried shows, and two paintings were selected for a statewide traveling show for animal awareness.
Welded steel is sculptor Foss's favorite medium, allowing for intuition and the happy accident. She sometimes enjoys creating sculptures that are suggestions, not detailed replicas, of nature, as if sketching in steel, capturing the spirit. Foss sees her intimate association with animals as the main force behind her art; she is pleased to sculpt the creatures that have enriched her life, and to provide a tactile experience to other animal lovers.
Krol's thirty-five-year creative career has brought her international recognition, with over 750 pieces in private collections throughout the world. Her works, in media from bronze and stainless steel castings to marble carving, drawing, and painting, range from massive sculptures to fine jewelry. Her sculpture Olympic Rhythms was reproduced in 1988 by the Pageant of the Masters, an event of international renown in Laguna, California, honoring only one living artist per year. Krol is legendary in her hometown, Prescott, Arizona, for her magnificent four thousand pound stainless steel casting of a bucking bull. Kicking ten feet high and measuring fourteen feet long, Silver Tornado balances only on his front feet.
Due to his father's career, Soderberg spent his youth in South and Southeast Asia, traveling the world, and absorbing the world's great art. Aware early on that he was an artist, at twelve he studied teakwood carving with Thailand's leading master. Martial arts study put him on the path to capture human motion in sculpture. He returned to the US, and to culture shock and cultural upheaval, in 1968; the People's Park riot in Berkeley found him painting a picture in the street. A year later he joined the Marines, and upon discharge he began working with metal, learning the craft of bronze in a Flagstaff foundry in 1976. After some "starving artist" years he achieved professional status and served as Artist in Residence at Northern Arizona University. Internationally collected...
W. B. van der Heyden
Van der Heyden never drives past a junkyard without casting an eye for potential sculptural material. What others call "leftovers" provide inspiration for the creative woodworking that, for van der Heyden, is always associated with music.

An art teacher and frequent demonstrator for art groups, Linscott is a signature member and past president of Women Artists of the West.

A glass artist, jazz musician, writer of humorous short fiction, and landscape painter, Lee Baldwin has since 1963 produced paintings distinctive for their resonance with the edge of vision. Self-taught in all media he pursues, Baldwin is now exploring a key concept he calls "hard-edge impressionism." This search leads him to representations of scene and form which can appear quite random before coming into focus. As a result of this inquiry, Baldwin's images walk a fine line between the realistic and the abstract; new relationships appear with every viewing.

Born in Poland, Jablonski and her husband moved to South Africa in 1981 to protest the communist regime. Fourteen years later Jozef Jablonski was offered a position in California; once relocated in the Simi Valley, Irena Jablonski could not find work in her field of structural engineering. "Some powerful and mysterious forces made sure my new career would be in fine arts," she relates; deciding to continue her fine art studies, begun as a hobby in Pretoria, she signed up at the California Institute of Art. It was love at first sight; she felt she had come home. Inspired by the masters she loved in childhood in the museums of Europe, she turned to oil painting. Jablonski's paintings have been represented at the American Art Gallery in Deauville, France...

Long years as a working cowboy and bull rider on the Navajo reservation informs the "authentic surrealism" of Powers' Western art. Entirely self-taught, he has created a large body of work in watercolor, oils, and sculptures in stone, wood, and saguaro. The unique, magical quality conveyed in his treatment of a largely traditional subject matter was born in 1984, when Powers was invited to create a mural of the gold fields for the Yreka, California, historic district. He went on to a career in commercial art, meanwhile creating art that has hung in galleries in Santa Fe, Sedona, Durango, and Scottsdale and is also displayed in Baltimore's Maritime Museum and at the Ronald Reagan Ranch. Powers is known for finely detailed portraits of key Indian leaders.

Odum was commissioned to do the 1994 Tucson Fiesta de Los Vaqueros poster. Born in Rouen, France, Odum attended art school in southern France and studied under Zoltan Szabo and Tom Hill.

She has recently added Western subjects to her work, drawing on the rich heritage of the Southwest.
