Wood Sculptor Ray Jonas

Ray Jonas creates one-of-a-kind pieces from various hardwoods collected from around the world, including maple, rosewood, myrtle, walnut, padauk, flame box elder, and iron wood. The colors of wood range from black to fiery yellow and are complemented by stone inlays, as well as other materials like ebony. Shifting his attention from his long-time work at a bronze foundry to creating rustic wood furniture, Ray now does most of his work by hand, translating Nature's humble materials into striking and unique artwork. Focusing mostly on smaller, decorative pieces, Ray's graceful hearts and other shapes emphasize the beauty of the natural wood. Ray attended the Art Center College of Design in Los

Life Is Art

I've just returned to Arizona after spending a week in Alabama visiting friends and family. Prior to departure, I was very stressed about seeing my mom, who has vascular dementia and did not know me last time I was with her. After picking up my rental car, I stopped in for what I assumed would be a brief visit. She was lying in bed wide awake, and we chatted for the next two hours. I knew she recognized me as family, even though she said something that let me know she thought I was my older sister. That was fine with me; I felt so blessed that she knew I was hers. The next day, she was in the community room waiting for lunch when I stopped in. She had me in stitches for the entire visit. I k

Gina Covel and Crystalline Essence

Gina Covel is a true healer. With a background in nursing and a love of animals and nature, she is skilled in hands-on healing and dowsing. Various paths led her to gain further knowledge in aromatherapy, vibrational medicine, the healing properties of crystals. After receiving a book about how to make and use gem elixirs. Gina found that she "was compelled almost daily to create elixirs – from individual crystals, combinations of crystals, art work, and things." And thus, Crystalline Essence was born, and with it, Gina's Chakra Elixirs, Angel Mists, and Vibrational Sprays. Gina says the Angel Mists are "filled with warm hugs and pure LOVE, these sprays surround you in a golden cocoon of

Alejandra Villalobos Fine Jewelry

Alejandra Villalobos has had a lifetime of creativity although, until recently, much of it was only imagined. Many of her Russian Facebook friends had been making embroidered jewelry, and Alejandra, who was spending much of her time at home with her young son, decided to teach herself the art.

James Naughton: The Meditation Circle

James Naughton is an author and painter who specializes in these thought-provoking meditation circles. According to Naughton'sbook The Meditation Circle, one must "suspend . . . the analytical mode of seeing and leisurely gaze at the simple figure for 60 seconds." Try not to blink if you notice that the circle begins to glow or flash. Feel your spirit begin to flow. Naughton suggests that viewers consider the circle to be a hole in the wall through which our spirit can flow and explore the other side. The longer you look at the circle, the more intense the illusion becomes. Stop by the Sedona Artist Market for more of James Naughton's Meditation Circles.

Art Is...

Filling a space in a beautiful way. That's what art means to me. – Georgia O'Keeffe (Art by Elly Sands) Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers – and never succeeding. – Marc Chagall (Art by Helen McLuckie) To give a body and a perfect form to one’s thought, this—and only this—is to be an artist. – Jacques-Louis David (Art by Dann Powers) Art has something to do with the achievement of stillness in the midst of chaos. – Saul Bellow (Art by Cyndie Koopsen) To evoke in oneself a feeling one has experienced, and…then, by means of movements, lines, colors, sounds or forms expressed in words, so to transmit that feeling—this is the activity of art. – Leo Tolstoy (Art by

Linda Callahan: Crazy Gourd Lady!

She is married to her best friend of 44 years, Butch, and they have two children, three grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Then they have to be washed and cleaned before they can be used. Linda starts out with a raw dried gourd and works on it
