Donna Sakamoto Crispin

Eugene, Oregon, USA

I have been weaving baskets and other fiber art for 28 years. My college degrees are in Sociology and Education, so I don’t have formal art training. However, I’ve taken all kinds of basketry workshops offered throughout the Northwest and other classes at our local craft center. I have found that my style of basket weaving is enhanced by trying out a variety of crafts, such as weaving, ceramics or jewelry.

Through the years, I have synthesized the information from many workshop experiences, studying books and other basket weavers. Northwest Native American basketry and Japanese culture, especially basketry, have also been extremely important influences. One of my favorite weaving materials is western red cedar bark, which is a highly prized resource of local basket weavers. I have collected my own cedar bark in nearby forests and I make my own strips, which involves hours of tedious preparation. I honor traditional collecting methods, which allow for conservation of our natural materials.

Many of my pieces incorporate aspects of Japanese basketry. Since I am a third generation Japanese-American, I try to find ways to integrate Japanese culture into my work. Although Japanese basketry is mostly woven bamboo, I don’t have access to the proper materials and tools so I find other ways to integrate the techniques and aesthetics into my fiber art.

Landscapes and nature in general have always been an important part of my perception and application to artwork. I have had the luxury of living and working in some of the most beautiful places in the West and their memories can be seen in my weaving.

Hazel Loveridge

United Kingdom

I am a linguist by trade and a priestess by nature. Language has always been my arena – the whiteboard my jotter, the open road my inspiration. Words well up inside me and spill onto the page. Sometimes they come naked, sometimes with a melody. My poetry demands to live and breathe.

Lisa Adams Reed

Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

I have secretly seen myself as an artist since I was a small child. I always knew my creativity would dominate my life and in this final third I am all in! I was blessed by a stroke that left me blind in one eye a few years ago. Funny how it made me see things differently and have an even greater desire to paint the world from this unique perspective.

I discovered my favorite juicy medium when I first opened a jar of cold wax and mixed it with oil. It was like painting with yummy canned frosting! The many layers that I apply, then intuitively scrape away, always reveals beautiful surprises underneath. So much like life.

The stuff that we may have layered on and covered up make us the unique individuals that we are. If we dare peel some layers away, our colorful gifts are there in all their glory. My paintings are SoulScapes.

Nara K

Blue Mountains

I use Art as a spiritual practice. A meditation. I use it to discover hidden parts of me that want to communicate and show me what i need to know. I delve intuitively, not having much structure but instead allow the chosen medium to guide me on paper or canvas. For me creativity is all about healing myself and sharing it with others so they may feel healed and inspired. My paintings are always bright and vivid in color. I love creating mandalas and using them as tools in meditation. At the moment i am working on a mandala Oracle. A set of beautifully created cards to help open and heal the reader.

Paige Sullivan

United States

I have been painting and drawing all of my life. I love art and think everyone is an artist; in fact, your own life is the masterpiece that you give to the world and the universe. I’ve always had this in mind as I paint. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Arizona State University in 1987 and since then, I have exhibited in several alternative art galleries and most recently my art was displayed on the ceiling of the planetarium at the Arizona Science Center. I have also been published in the We’Moon 30 Year Anthology and the 2007 datebook and wall calendar. I paint in acrylics and write stories about my artwork. I consider myself to be a part of the Sacred Art Movement which means that ritual and ceremony are involved in the process of creating the art. My goal as an artist is to help the viewer remember that they have beautiful magic and power inside them and so I want my art to lift the soul and be inspiring.


Prem Danielle Tonossi

Crawford Bay, British Columbia, CA

Originally from the French-speaking part of Switzerland, I immigrated to British Columbia, Canada some 17 years ago and now reside in the beautiful Kootenays. My journey in life has always been a colorful expression of Spirit embodied in matter.

My artist’s name is PREM and I am a visionary artist.

I celebrate Mother Earth and the multiple aspects of the Divine Feminine. I see each blank canvas as a portal to the depth of the inner sacred being. Painting is for me a creative spiritual practice, a powerful tool for healing on a personal and collective level.

My new inspirational deck “Multiple Womyn, Who Am I?” is dedicated to the Sacred Feminine Nature, so that we may enjoy the precious aspects of our essential feminine power.

My deep heart’s desire is to embrace life with creativity, passion and gratitude and share this with you!


Scott Lockhart

Austin, Texas, USA

I was born and raised on the great high plains of the Texas panhandle.

The big sky above me and flat plain before me deeply shaped my vision and connection to the soul’s expression as poetry and to the visual arts.

As a boy, I was a voracious reader. I also spent a lot of time outdoors. I was either roaming the cotton fields, watching the thunderheads billowing overhead or in the library caught up in some wild adventure on Treasure Island or solving a great mystery with The Hardy Boys.

In the 7th grade I wrote my first book of poetry. It was titled The Infinite Corridors of Time.

That raised a few eyebrows in my family, especially my dad’s.

It wasn’t long after my first book of poetry that I picked up a camera. It was a Polaroid. I fell in love with photography. The first time I peeled the paper off the Polaroid film and watched the black and white image magically pop into view, I was hooked.

My first “official” post was as the high school photographer, reporter and year book staffer.

After high school, I worked my way through college as a studio portrait photographer and dark room technician. I also worked at the local TV station as a cameraman shooting live TV in the studio and on location. I later became a production assistant for a production company and crewed on many art films and commercial film productions. On some of these shoots, I spent time in front of the camera as an actor.

More eyebrows raised.

After college I continued to write poetry, and I was a finalist in two national poetry contests. I was invited to read my poetry in Washington, DC. My poems were published in an anthology of the collected works of the contestants.

For most of my life I have carried a camera and my love for photography, writing, the arts and the great outdoors has never ceased.

My greatest influence as a child came from my grandfather who was a graduate of The Art Institute of Chicago. He was a working artist his entire life. He was a kind and gentle man and my mentor in many ways.

I believe my real education actually came from my life lived as a boy roaming the vast open prairies of West Texas, but I was formally educated at The University of Texas in Austin and at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas where I studied Sustainable Architecture, Construction Management, Engineering and the Arts.

Needing a day gig, I opened a small landscaping business in 1983. Over time my company grew into an engineering services and landscaping design build firm specializing in storm water management and landscape construction and design.

I was the CEO for 30 years and sold the business in 2012 to devote all of my time to the arts.

During the last 30 years I have lived in Austin, Texas. I’ve raised 4 children along with numerous cats and dogs.

The cats and dogs were a lot easier.

I am currently working on a book titled Love Takes Over as well as a screenplay titled The Last Rodeo. This book showcases my photography, poetry and prose demonstrating the connection of the voice of the soul as it expresses through images of the natural world.

It is my hope that you will be inspired by these words and images to explore the gift that is our lives and the world we all share.
