Emily Christensen McPhie
Emily Christensen McPhie has always yearned to create and to decipher truth. Centered on family, faith, and art, her paintings reflect toil and tenderness. Her work conveys a duality of swimming in an eternal story’s deep waters and trudging through everyday messy realities. Creativity is a virtue in Emily’s family. That has led to an enriching life, full of appreciation for artistic expressions.
Emily McPhie grew up at the foot of Utah’s Wasatch Mountains. In 2001 she received her BFA from Brigham Young University. She now resides in Mesa, Arizona.
Kwani Povi Winder
Young artist Kwani Povi Winder has a passion for learning and creating. Her paintings display deep emotions in vibrant colors. Primary subject matters include Native figures as well as landscapes. Kwani explores her Santa Clara Pueblo Tewa heritage through painting. She draws on religious beliefs when portraying Native figures. Her paintings seek to preserve, share, and educate about her unique heritage.
In 2013 Kwani graduated with a BFA in Oil Painting from Brigham Young University, Idaho. She has painted full-time ever since. Kwani currently resides in Ogden, UT with her husband, Dallen, and two daughters.
“Every day I try to see more and do more with the gift that I have been given. Art is my solace: a light I found in a dark time. I hope to bring light into others’ lives through my paintings. How fitting it is that representational art seeks to reveal the color and beauty of light. I am always chasing light.”
Terry Cooke Hall
Terry Cooke’s passion for art led her to numerous courses and workshops in life drawing, illustration, and graphic design. Since becoming a professional artist in 2009, she has earned several awards and a museum purchase. She has exhibited in more than 30 major museum shows and several gallery group exhibitions.
Terry’s contemporary style is a result of the West viewed through a lens of 30 years’ design and illustration. Her work recently featured on the cover of Southwest Art magazine and can be found in corporate and private collections across the nation. She lives in Bozeman, Montana.
Born in Southern California and based in Twentynine Palms, Whitney Gardner’s southwestern landscape art includes her far west Mojave Desert home. A fascination with rugged scenery led her to an artful study of the region. Her plein air and studio compositions are an ode to the remarkable facets of the desert.
Whitney attained a BFA at California College of the Arts in 2010, but she considers herself self-taught as an artist. Her work has been published in Western Art Collector magazine, and in 2019 her painting Ocotillo Sky received the Best of Show award at the Joshua Tree National Park Art Exposition. In May 2021 she had a sell-out show in a solo online exhibition in Western Gallery.
Lou Stine discovered her passion for art later in life: she only stared painting at 48 and has been making up for lost time ever since! She prefers to work in acrylics but has explored other mediums. Her experiments include collage and other materials and her mixed media pieces brim with new ideas and techniques.
Lou’s first love is florals. She paints a variety of subjects – faces, figures, and abstracts – but always comes back to florals. Rather than an accurate representation, Lou captures the essence of her subjects and the emotions they inspire. Her loose, abstract style is deliberately slightly imperfect. People describe Lou’s art as joyful, and one of her goals as an artist is to spread more joy in the world.
Lou and is a member of the Joplin Regional Artists Coalition, Table Rock Arts Guild, and Artists of Northwest Arkansas. She exhibits in across southwest Missouri and northwest Arkansas. She lives in Shell Knob, Missouri.
Born in Palm Springs, Debbie Gallerani’s paintings celebrate the vibrant natural beauty and colors of the desert Southwest. Earlier, she had wanted to be a cartoonist, “Although my early ambition led me to draw everyone I knew as comic caricatures, and my comic strips were published in some local papers, I was young and eager, so I took a different route into graphic design.” Her whimsical characters appeared in ads, campaigns, comic strips and books, and she became one of the top designers at world-renowned Palm Springs Magazine. She continued her passion in Orange County in her own graphic design firm, Studio West Graphics, and her student interns learned, hands-on. Clients included: Del Monte Jazz Festival, Toyota, Ford, Fila, Dunlop, Darlyn Sportswear, Bowers Museum, Target, Prince (musician), Barbara Feldman (actress), Gold’s Gym, and Santa Anita Racetrack.
An avid AirBnB hostess in her charming hacienda decorated with characteristic flair in the beautiful Saguaro National Park near Tucson, Arizona, she participates in art shows that include Aaron Brothers; Ojai Art in the Park; ART of Orange County; Women in Art and Cartoons; and Borrego Springs Art Institute Summer Showcase. She has featured in Xanadu Art Gallery’s Art Catalogue and her paintings and sculptures are in Cactus Wren Art Gallery, Cactus Wren Artisans, and The Greg Anthony Art Gallery.
Debbie’s illustrations feature in Jack the Mouse children’s book and a coffee table book. Other publications include Contemporary Painters by Danijela Kracun and Charles McFadden. Her originals are in private collections in Arizona, California, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, and even Great Britain.
“The love of art has always been at the very core of my thoughts, the deepest stirring of my heart, and the food of my visual appetite.”
I stand and look at a giant, blank canvas, paintbrush poised, and ponder my initial approach. I walk up as if into the canvas interior and explore my new surroundings, for each canvas has its own, unique personality that I want to find, express, and make distinguished. The colors and “images” reflect my inner buoyancy and progressive optimism. They reflect my spirit and, I hope, will enliven your surroundings.
I am native to the redwood coastal region of southwest Oregon. Growing up, I knew, felt, and respected the northwest Pacific coast’s rugged power, beauty and freedom. Later, I got to know the straight-forward, infinite landscapes of the Texas Panhandle. Then I discovered the surround-sound, deeply spiritual Land of Enchantment. New Mexico’s warm tinges of golden light cavort across the desert in spritely dance.
I love the freedom of expression and mystery in abstract art, which emanate from the soul, with its own language. For me, it denotes a way of life, a captured individualism etched upon its vessel.
Elena Golberg was born in an industrial city in Siberia, near Lake Baikal, the world’s deepest lake. She attended an art school for gifted young children, and was strongly influenced by powerful, Russian realistic art traditions. Classes were taught by talented, Soviet painters, who created a wonderful atmosphere within the learning process. In 1989 Elena earned her fine arts degree and teaching license from a Soviet university. She taught art history, painting, drawing, composition, and sculpture for 15 years.
Elena happily moved to the United States in 2004. Native American culture fascinated her, and many Native American portraits followed. Her works were displayed at the Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art in 2011. In 2019, she transitioned to an intriguing, new subject, Saguaro cacti, her current muse, and she braves the Arizona desert to sketch saguaros enthusiastically. The in early morning light catches the “movements” of their muscular trunks and branches. She then fine tunes the saguaros’ strong expressions as they gesture toward Arizona’s big sky.
Naomi Brown was born in Palm Springs and grew up in Twentynine Palms, California. Now, she, her husband and children live in Queen Creek, Arizona. Self-taught, Naomi is a nationally recognized artist.
For 17 years Naomi’s Southwest and Western landscapes and inspirational religious works have graced the market. Her works range in size from a miniature 5”x7” to an imposing 48”x72”, on museum board as well as canvas. She underpaints with acrylic, then details her gradient skies in oils. Naomi’s instinctual use of color lends her paintings a natural depth and vibrancy.
“I love to capture the delicate beauty and colors of the desert – the desert’s peace and beauty calm me. I was fortunate to grow up in Twentynine Palms and enjoy that beauty – from the smallest creatures to vast open and colorful vistas. The desert is forever instilled in my heart.”
At age four Krystii announced her intent to be an artist; at seven she won her first art competition; at 14 her paintings were selling. She studied graphic design at university and established a bridal and evening wear company, which became one of Australia’s largest. Five years’ study in tonal realism led to a return to painting. Successfully painting Australian wildlife, she expanded to American wildlife after a 1998 trip. Her fascination with the American West leads her to seek out Native American and cowboy subjects to paint.
A focus on traditional realism and Western subjects has absorbed Krystii for 30 years. Then she discovered a whole new creative side, and abstract modern ideas took flight. New mediums allow her to create works with texture, subtle depth, and emotional connection. Krystii is a Master Signature Member of American Women Artists, and a member of the Portrait Society of America. Who knows where this new art adventure will take her? But it’s sure to be another fabulous ride!
