Amy Schulz


Amy Schulz starting selling her fantasy etched glass in the local convention art shows in 1999. Since then she has branched out to etching on rock and metal as well as on glass. This one-time hobby has become a full-time business bringing her all over Arizona to do numerous art & craft shows and to do commissioned orders. She has been able to do small items such as wedding flutes and steel flasks as well as large items such as car windows and 10 foot tall home windows. Amy loves the fact that she can be a stay-at-home mom while enjoying creating her artwork and running her business.


Annette Sexton-Ruiz


Annette received her Bachelor's of Art from Arizona State University, distinction in Art History, Pre-Columbian and Mexican emphasis. Additional studies were in graphic arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Art Education Master's program from Arizona State University. Annette lived in Mexico City in the late 80's as well as several visits to Puerto Rico and Ireland later. Her exposures to Latin American and Irish cultures as well as a strong Catholic background have been influences in her work. She uses bold, energetic colors, similar to those seen in various ancient art. She is also fascinated with devotional images, religious iconography and ceremonial rituals of different cultures. In sharing with children, Annette tries to introduce other societies importance through learning about their art. They not only learn how to make art but also study art's historical purpose and cultural beliefs associated with it.

Will Shetterly


Will Shetterly got a fondness for doing new things from his parents, whose adventures include running a trading post near Ojibwe lands in northern Ontario and a road-side attraction in Florida (which inspired his novel Dogland). He has been an actor in New York, a small press publisher in Minneapolis, a screenwriter in Los Angeles, and a fiction writer wherever he parks his computer. In 1994, he ran for Governor of Minnesota and finished third in a field of six. He currently lives in southern Arizona with his beloved wife, Emma Bull, and his tolerated cat, Buddha. (They didn't name him. They don't know who Buddha fooled into thinking he was enlightened.) Will writes novels, screenplays, short stories, and comic books. His books include Elsewhere, Nevernever, Chimera, Double Feature, and Dogland. "I'm proudest," he says "of Dogland—your mileage may vary."
