February 11th was a beautiful sunny day filled with amazing artisans and music. Art for the Heart https://www.art4heartaz.org/ raises money to benefit the American Heart Association. They started as a club with a plan to make a difference in the community.
Artists such as Crystals Creation (https://www.instagram.com/crystals_creationsaz/) featuring Muffins and Bread was a success almost selling out! Maricopa Lifestyle Magazine was on hand with eyes laser focused on beautiful "made-from-the heart" photos, paintings and crafts. Photographer Richard Sovis https://rsovisphotography.com/
, a naturalist photographer was there with amazing prints and postcards. Other artists included Robin Holland https://www.facebook.com/robin.r.holland.1 , Susan Sullivan Designs https://www.facebook.com/resinjourney and Kaz of kaz_makes_art https://www.instagram.com/kaz_makes_art/. Arts and Crafts Artists like Russell Frank Pastels and Pottery https://www.facebook.com/rdfcone10, Hearts and Keys Art https://www.heartsandkeysart.com/ really stood out. Really unique designers like Artistry of Donna Manaraze https://artistryofdonnamanaraze.com/ and Rocky Acord of Big Rock Designs brought their "A" game. Finally, beautiful jewelry was on display by artists Jewelry N Stickers https://www.instagram.com/jewelry_n_stickers/ , Veronica Jones of River Jewels https://www.instagram.com/riverjewelsaz/, Dianne Hebert of Dianne's Designs https://www.etsy.com/shop/auntiescreations/?etsrc=sdt and Tonight Sam Jewelry https://www.instagram.com/tonightsamjewelry/.
We hope to see all these artists display their work at Maricopa Friends of the Arts (MFOTA) someday.
