Linda Dunn began painting in 2003 in oil. She has been inspired by the beautiful community of Cambria-by-the-Sea.

Dena Mara Kuhn has been a graphic designer for decades, and sometimes a design teacher for Northern Arizona University, creating in different modes for all that time.

Helmut Kuhn is a nature photographer for life, from film to digital and lately with a flying camera. Helmut migrated from Vienna, Austria to the Western US, and especially loves the Southwest and Central California Cost – with their wide open space and natural beauty.
