Faces of Nature

I have been crafting masks and shields for over thirty years, out of feathers, fiber, wood, beads, leather, fur and fabric. My artform continues to evolve. I live in the southwestern United States, so many find the Native American spirit alive in my art. “Faces of Nature” describes the theme of most of my work, as I am inspired by Nature’s beauty, power, intensity, and graciousness. All my pieces reflect some aspect of Nature–in color, texture, and form. Some of my materials I purchase, and many I find as I hike or accompany my husband as he fishes the rivers where we live.

Everything I make is created with diligence and love. I view these pieces as a testament to who I am and a small reflection of who my Creator is. I hope through my work people can see just a glimpse of how thoughtfully they themselves were made and that would spark something in them to get to know their Creator a little more.

SUZART

SUZART came to fruition in 2006, quite unexpectedly, but with focus and a sense of peace. I find abstract art using bright/bold colors along with textures and various mediums an absolute therapeutic way to create and share Joy and Happiness along with opening our imaginations! Beauty IS in the eye of the beholder...and we all have such amazing beauty!

Chris Vicari

Charleaux Design

After working with many mediums over the years, Durango, CO artist Chris Vicari discovered fluid art and fell in love. She uses vibrantly pigmented acrylic paint to create flowing patterns on canvas, then adds elements of digital art. The final piece is printed onto thoughtfully made paper products designed to help you grow a prettier day, because who doesn't like fun and functional art?

Since then, Howdy Studio has become locally known for the colorful, pseudo-realistic depictions of people's favorite things and plants.
