Collective art work and life of up and coming artist, Christina Echeverria.
Rapidly spreading on silk, transparent dyes cause the artist to swiftly create the painting with spontaneous action. My painting process is similar to a jazz musician; I begin with a general vision in mind, sketches alongside, and I go with the flow, capturing the mood of the day, trusting my experience to improvise.
Cody DeLong has been a cornerstone of the Jerome arts scene for 17 years now and is one of the town’s most accomplished oil painters. His style is often described as ‘luminous’ and upon entering his Jerome studio, one is struck by the beautiful sense of light and color in his work.

I have a strong belief in helping each other in our community. Doors open unexpectedly and have drawn me to organizations such as Eve’s Place (battered women shelter) and the Foundation for Blind Children. I have donated art, taught classes and have been a soft shoulder to listen when the need arises. I also am a volunteer within multiple art organizations. This is where I contribute my 30 years plus of business experience. The need is so great to create, promote and share art with everyone. Working with these art groups you become a constant promoter and communicator for the support and growth of art.
