Barbara Nuckols
Barbara Nuckols, LMFT uses “Personal Alchemy Process Painting” and an eclectic approach of Jungian archetypal psychology in helping clients reclaim support in their lives; "During my own work in the expressive arts, the unfolding truth of my Inner Warrior Self was spontaneous and helped me integrate several wonderful aspects of this archetype.” Robyn Cota Cann is Barbara's process painting partner and is an intuitive painter, writer, art journaler and credentialed art teacher. Robyn believes strongly in facilitating personal discovery of the sacred creative that is present in each person. We have studied expressive art including teacher-training with Aviva Gold (Painting from the Source®).

C.M. Ralph
Born in 1955 I grew-up during a time and in a family where “being an artist” was neither encouraged nor supported no matter how gifted one might be. The mantra I heard from my Father was, “Get a Real Job”. So I did – I worked in manufacturing for 44 years which ended March 15th, 2017. I simply woke-up that morning and knew I would never go to work again. I emailed my resignation and never looked back. In 1989 I designed and published the world’s first LGBT computer game – “Caper in the Castro” it was made on a Mac Plus computer using HyperCard software. It was released as “Charityware” and people who downloaded the game were asked to donate to an AIDES charity of their choice. https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2014/06/caper-in-the-castro-interview.html - it is currently being installed in the Strong Museum in Rochester NY as well as other museums internationally. A late-bloomer, I graduated UCSC (University of California at Santa Cruz) in 2002 with a degree in Interactive Media Design. In 2004 I received my degree in Filmmaking from the New York Alternative Film School. I went on to teach 2 adult courses for the University – Digital Special Effects and Digital Film Editing. I formed my first digital film business – Digital Backlot – which was replaced years later by The Undisclosed Studio. I worked in animation and special effects film making until they began to lose my interest and I longed to get back to being a visual artist. Currently my passion for creation centers around my pen and ink illustrations, 19th Century graphic design, digital graphic design and film making. I also work creatively in virtual environments.

Helen Kate McAllister
I am an Archetypal Psychologist by profession primarily influenced by the work of Carl Jung and James Hillman. I also am close to Native American cultural values and I study myth and the importance of story and dreams as the background of daily life. I hold deep love and respect for the living sacred spirit of our Earth. I feel that all of our actions influence the whole of life and the place to begin to regain our sense of the Sacred starts with awareness of Beauty. As we learn to protect Beauty in the Wild things, the City, our relationships with animals and plants and elemental beings and the diverse human cultures that we share space with, I pray we may Recover from the damage our long history of ignoring the Feminine: Imagination, the Unseen Real, the True Mover of all of us, has done.

My artwork is a reflection on what I am currently working through as my life’s path continues to evolve. It is sometimes political, emotional, spiritual or purely to make a space cool and memorable. Running a custom painting business for 15 years and collaborating with a wide variety of clients has been very rewarding and my skills have grown tremendously by having to paint all sorts of subjects on all sorts of mediums. I love making art and feel blessed to have made a career out it.

Lynne Wagner
I paint whatever I feel is beautiful, both figurative and landscape. Since 1978 I have been a student of the World-Teacher Adi Da Samraj, who instructed me in the process of copying masterworks of art as a form of apprenticeship, and guided my study of traditional and sacred art of the East and West. I began to paint and sell figurative work in 1995. I hold a Master of Arts degree in Education and a California lifetime teaching credential. I worked for 23 years teaching school and love to paint portraits of children, because their faces and forms are capable of expressing the subtle and beautiful qualities of vulnerability, equanimity, strength, humor and joyfulness. Many of my portraits were created in collaboration with the subject of the work, to be given to a family member as a gift. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to commission a portrait or other image that holds personal meaning for you.

Mark Henson
Mark was born and raised in Northern California, and attended University there, receiving a degree in studio art in 1973. He has been a professional artist ever since, working with paint, metal, wood and computers. He has co-founded several gallery ventures, traveled extensively in Asia and elsewhere, and now operates Sacred Light Studio from his home out in the country north of San Francisco, and maintains a small artist's retreat in Costa Rica.

About his art and process he says:
"My art tends to be somewhat narrative- I like to tell a story or show a state of emotion or consciousness with my images. I often begin with some sort of idea or theme. This theme might be suggested by anything at all, or may just drift into the consciousness of an artistic inspiration during my day. I am often asked if I receive these images while dreaming asleep. Sometimes they do come in dreams, but usually they are found floating around in my mind, just waiting to be noticed.. While I tend to be a down-to -earth person, when activating my creative energies I begin by looking deeply within myself, and seek to express what I may find waiting there. My sincere wish is to tap into the Divine Source of Being, to Consciousness, to Spirit, or whatever you may call it- that place where existence comes from, and to bring into visual reality images manifesting the knowledge revealed while in this presence. Strangely enough, I have discovered that the more intensely personal my vision is, the more widely it resonates when presented to the world.

I believe that art can have the ability to catalyze positive social and cultural changes. In addition to stimulating our visual cortex, Art has the amazing magical power to evoke profound emotional intensity as well as to provoke intellectual thinking. My aspiration as an artist is to create compelling images of beauty and power that serve to promote our Conscious Evolution as human beings, and to show us how to live in a peaceful world. To this end I like to present images exploring themes of Awakening Consciousness, Divine Sexuality, Political Realities and Living in Harmony with Nature."

Robert Minuzzo
Robert Minuzzo was born in San Francisco, California on February 28, 1956. As a child Robert learned to draw from his mother while his father shared his love of the California wilderness with his young son. Growing up across the street from Golden Gate Park accelerated his awareness of nature and exposed him to the fine art in the museums there. By high school Robert’s artistic talent won him the opportunity to paint a mural on his auditorium entrance at Lowell High and members of its faculty became his first collectors. Robert began his higher education in pre-med at City College in San Francisco. Using his draftsmanship skills in anatomy class helped him memorize human body structure. An art professor there recommended he apply to Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. After his acceptance he declared a major in illustration; but by his second year Robert’s natural gift for painting was heavily encouraged by his instructors. He emerged from Art Center in 1980 as an artist, or more precisely a painter. Robert returned to Northern California and began capturing the spectacular beauty of its landscapes on paper and canvas. With influences from the work of de Kooning, Pollock and Diebenkorn, he has created his own unique style: often an impressionist, sometimes a more abstract expressionist but always using his command of the spectrum. Robert’s work confirms his internalized sensitivity to nature’s perfect designs and infinite color.

As a wildlife biologist I tend to see ecosystems, because that's how nature works. This planet has so much beauty and intelligence, the scale is infinite and inspiration is a given. Every painting and writing experience become a teacher and how you live adds to that, but most of all, what happens is that they underscore the importance of humility.
