my simple story...
I really did grow up on a potato farm in beautiful Midwest America. My mother a Mexican migrant worker from the south and my pops a first generation German farmer "making his way."
Their "love story" is a great one... if interested ask me about it. It is definitely filled with "triumph & tragedy!"
I was lucky to have found my "true love" early on, ART and Photography which really to me means "people in places."
Like many other photographers I am inspired and curious by people and the ways in which they live. Forever curious, forever young and forever taking a chance to see life and its random circumstance.
I studied art at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and earned my MFA at the University of Wisconsin Madison.
My mentors are many and I am lucky for that... Over the last twenty years I have worked on many fine art, commercial and journalistic projects using various camera formats and lighting conditions. I sure hope to keep them coming...
I am fortunate to have over a decade of teaching experience at various schools like the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, & as a Graduate student I served as a TA at the University WI - Madison in the Art Department, I also served as an Adjunct Photo Prof at Carthage College, & my longest run (11 Years) was a Photo Faculty member in the Media & Creative Arts Department at the Milwaukee Area Technical College.
But... then of course a new "life circumstance" the West came calling.... So as it stands I travel from the West to the Midwest to the West still making pictures! Still searching, still in love & still "dancing with strangers."
Call, text or Email me if you would like to see a specific collection of work or a show listing. I intentionally have ex-cluded all color from my site... http://www.mariaellenhuebner.com/

Born in 1968 and raised in Utah, Cindy developed a love of the wide open spaces of the Intermountain West. Her mother, an oil painting artist and a performing artist, surrounded their family with music, art, and culture. Their native heritage taught her a love of the land and all of earth’s creatures as she learns and practices the ways of her Eastern Cherokee ancestors.
Cindy shares her gift of sight to include you in her journey to her native soul. As you follow her, you begin to see the patterns and her story. Each image holds energy of those people, places, or things that transfix and inspire the wonder within her. Her art is her gift to the world. See the details of places that she goes to commune with spirit. In the hustle and bustle of our busy lives, she has the ability to take the art enthusiast to a place that quiets the world and gives you a breath to escape (just for a minute). Enjoy the colors and textures, as well as, cultures and our beautiful world!
She has currently collections showing at the CVCA Ellen Eccles Bullen Center Artists' Gallery in Logan, Utah. She has pieces shown in the downtown Alpine Art gallery ‘Honoring Utah Artist show in Salt Lake City. And, has a gallery on National Geographic’s website, as well as, private collections hosted throughout United States. She resides in Cache Valley with her family.
I love working in visual arts to create beauty and cultural awareness. Stop for a moment and be transported to awaken your soul. Allow the details to be recognized and appreciate places and cultures often hidden. These places I share with you are sacred. Many lessons and insights came during these trips. I hope these images move you, intrigue, and delight you. Most of all, I hope they bless you. Cedar burning...

Acrylic, Oil, & Bedazzled artwork by Jonny Hatch
Born and raised in Houston, TX, self-taught painter Jonny Hatch creates surreal and dreamy images (usually landscapes) inspired by the texture of paint, nature, landmarks, and space. Since moving to Cache Valley 4 years ago, he saw a need to fill the blank spaces on his wall and began a series of artworks that now spans over 100 images, including acrylic and oil paintings, black light fluorescent paintings, as well as crystal mosaics. Most of the artworks are not initialed on the front so as not to distract from the image.
