My “joie de vivre” is exploring with harmonious color & disappearing for hours to create whimsical and colorful expressive paintings. I paint the Colorado mountains and aspen trees which surround me and provide a quiet escape. Other subject matter includes a series of pups with expressive personalities, lively bicycles and an abstract series using my characteristic bold hues, shape and texture. I use oil pastels which were originally developed for Pablo Picasso. They are an ideal medium with which to render my impressions while outside or traveling the world. These are applied to wood panels.

Painting is how I can best tell the truth. It is a messy unpredictable process for me. When the flow is happening, I know I'm supposed to paint. When it's not, it's excruciating. I'm learning to paint regardless and wait for the moments that it makes sense in, and just ride the rest of them out. I'm also learning to do this in my life. Art has to surprise me in some way for it to interest me. My first paintings were of elephants. I still am inspired by them. They are fascinating. Fierce, beautiful, brave, sorrowful, injured, angry, grounded, wise, complicated, they are a never ending source of inspiration and connection. I feel their pain, you can see it in their eyes along with their wisdom and a sense of the absurd. Ganesha, the hindu deity inspired my love as well. He is the son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha is helpful with transition, boundaries, thresholds and of course much more. He creates the faith to remove all obstacles. He also places the obstacles in your path, as they really are the path. I study and practice yoga. Painting is a spiritual practice as well. I try to show up with a beginner mind and see what will happen. I live and work in Ridgway, Colorado. I grew up back east in New York. I love art, mountains, my family, yoga, and figuring out how to be a human being. I work as an artist, yoga teacher, and free-lance graphic designer.

I initially began my artist journey as a photographer. I traveled extensively both locally and globally and always with my camera close by. I looked to discover exceptional colors, textures, reflections, shadows and light. In my photography I look for introspective serenity coupled with a zest for the dynamic. In recent years I have expanded my artist work into encaustics and mixed media incorporating what I learned from my photography.

Along with performing alongside his wife Karisa in the folk-rock duo You Knew Me When, Cie has always had a passion for the visual arts. After working in the Nashville music industry for over a decade, and then touring full-time for six and a half years throughout North America with You Knew Me When, Cie rekindled his love of the visual arts after moving to Ouray. Cie's award-winning artwork is primarily based in various types of wood. After buying and remodeling an old 1898 mining house in Ouray, Cie discovered the versatility of wood as an art medium and began transforming his garage into his woodworking studio. The majority of Cie's work is based on and inspired by the San Juan Mountains of Southwest Colorado. After creating a "wood canvas" Cie utilizes various routers, saws, and stains to create his artwork. A number of his works also incorporate the use of sound waves as an artistic element and subtle dictation of what the work embodies.

If Joanne Taplin were a forger of metals, she would make a sword, and it would be an instrument that embodied the perfect union of mystery, simplicity, beauty and ingenuity. She is the first to tell you that she is a fabricator, though, not a forger, and finds her joy in joining pieces of metal to create highly original furniture pieces. Intrigued by the lyrical symmetry of mathematical forms like the Realeaux triangle, challenged by the demands of function and captivated by the infinite possibilities for design solutions, Taplin has found her artistic niche as a metals artisan. Currently Taplin’s time is spent on commissions and her own creations, but there is a constant interplay between the two.
