Even before they met and became friends these four artists had art in common. A life long passion for each of them — art is part of the fabric of their lives. As they raised families and pursued careers it set them on paths that would intersect here in Southern California — Anne and Teresa native Californians, Zeke transplanted from Ohio and Sharon from Maryland came together and forged friendships as they studied art and traveled together, observing their world through the lenses of their hearts and minds and putting it all down in paint. Art has been the unseen but ever present companion shaping their lives and informing their awareness and perceptions.
