Nikki Pena

Head of Woodworkers

Nikki Pena is a pyrographer, painter and graphic designer who has had an interest in art since kindergarten, when she was so fixated on a drawing activity she missed recess. Her world was always changing. Having moved around a lot growing up, playing outside and drawing were the only things that remained a constant in oftentimes lonely situations. Soon that would be where she would find her muse. Being in nature helped her feelings of isolation, and often she would imagine herself blending into the trees, the wind and the wildflowers – a theme that can be found across her work. While her styles can vary depending on the medium used, high contrast and brilliant colors are her main mark. When not creating, she enjoys cooking, doing yoga, working out, hiking, travelling, and going to concerts.

Anthony Arcuri

Bismuth Cities is the project of artist, musician & material science enthusiast Anthony Arcuri. Someone who has always been drawn to the architectural anomalies left behind by ancient civilizations, Anthony quickly grew an interest in the crystallization patterns of bismuth metal and its tendency to form perfect stair-step, pyramid-like structures. Since the project’s beginning in 2014, Bismuth Cities has created hundreds of pieces using various processes. He is constantly experimenting new ways of affecting bismuth’s crystallization using everything from stones, crystals & fossils to the sound vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls. No matter how Anthony seeds the crystallization, he believes the most powerful tool is the intention he puts into the process.

Rachel Kling

Rachel Renaudin Kling Art

The paintings of Rachel Dawn emanate a vibrant energy that radiates life by placing a special focus on the depiction of light in its endless spectrums. Though there is always an observed light source on her subjects, her perspective process naturally expresses a physical and conceptual illumination that seems to originate from within and vibrate out. This serves to heighten reality and expose deeper spiritual meaning. Throughout her craft, she purposefully highlights the hidden potential in all things. "I have always felt that the power emanated from the sun is undervalued and not fully utilized. Whether it is perceived physically or abstractly, the many facets of light depict a wholeness. Its intrinsic quality is the agent that makes vision possible, thereby creating a point of view, exposing a perspective of color, and revealing the insight to understand a problem or mystery. In a world filled with pretense, I work to capture the truth of light and display it."
