About our artists:

Leah Donell was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, where she was introduced to jewelry design. She attended Penn State University as an art major. She brought her talents to Arizona in 2011 to pursue a career in jewelry design. She now resides in Sedona and practices metal art, creating jewelry and sculpture in sterling silver, copper and bronze. Leah says, “My jewelry line attempts to show two aspects of personality – hard, controlled geometric shapes offset by free-flowing, organic forms.”

Julie Bernstein Engelmann creates dynamic, brilliantly colored abstract paintings that speak to the heart and spirit. “When I paint,” Julie says, “I listen to what I call the painting spirit. The materials themselves have an innate wisdom that, when I tune into it, helps me apply the paint in the most wonderful way!” A popular abstract painting workshop instructor, Julie teaches Luscious Abstractions through the Sedona Arts Center. Her many years of teaching through artist groups in PA and AZ, as well as continuing education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and arts-in-education residencies, let Julie to write and eye-opening e-book for artists, entitled How to Bring Your Abstract to Life.

Agata Kijanka’s imagination was set ablaze during a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2006. She pursued various mediums in visual arts throughout her entire life, but was struck with inspiration from the beautiful desert. She moved to Sedona in May 2014, joined the Sedona Visual Artists’ Coalition that same year and participated in the “Who Am I?” exhibit.

Adell Shay moved to Sedona from Redondo Beach, California in 2012. Enchanted with Sedona and with living here, she began to hunt for brightly painted furniture that was saturated with color to contrast the gorgeous earth tones and to fit her whimsical tastes, but could find none. So she did then next best thing, she picked up a paintbrush and out poured the bright and joyful pieces she creates today. This furniture is lovingly found in antique stores and estate sales, sanded, primed and reimagined in her home art studio.

Deborah Stromsdorfer has spent the majority of her art career working in colored pencil. The focus of her work is on color relationships and the interplay between aesthetic order and natural beauty. Deborah holds an MFA in Drawing and a BFA in Painting from Northern Illinois University. Her newest series of drawings are inspired by the surrounding landscape of Sedona with floral imagery at the forefront of her work.

Kimball Walker’s jewelry is a combination of all the years of textile design, metals, beads and love of pattern – her passion for detail is seen in every piece and most components are made completely by her own hands. There are prayers and messages written on many of the etched metal pieces as a way to impart her energy to the person wearing the jewelry. Kimball moved from Rhode Island in 2013, where she had been teaching and running her bead store for ten years.

Monte Voepel received a BA in Art, majoring in Ceramics at Webster College in St Louis. In Arizona since 2001, Monte has taken metal working skills and finishing techniques to a point where he can explore the same themes in both metal and clay. Much of Monte’s inspiration comes from his love of gardening, nature and plants of the Southwest.
