ARTIST Cathy Horner
Cathy Horner's collage art is inspired by her 100 year old farm house in Johnson City, TN. Coupled with her appreciation for antiques and vintage things, her art is carefully crafted from her collection of images from old magazines, newspapers and catalogs. Over the years, she received international recognition of her original solo guitar arrangements. By age forty-eight, she found her muse in collage art that quickly found its way into art galleries and collectors' homes. Seeing Horner's art is a true reflection of her personality, full of whimsy, humor and her love of nature combined with her dedication to detail and creating fine art. Cathy's love of the outdoors is evidenced in her choice of charities, The Nature Conservancy. With each bottle sold 1% goes to supporting this great organization.
Western and wildlife artist Deanna Lally finds the inspiration for her artwork in everyday life. At her ranch in Snohomish, Washington, she trains Quarter Horses and competes in reining events throughout the US and Canada. Deer, coyotes, the occasional bear and bobcat grace the ranch with their wild presence, earning their place on her canvas. A book celebrating the National Parks has featured her works, and her paintings have exhibited in various shows throughout the country. Deanna's collection offers 1% of its sales to Sarvey Wildlife Care Center.
