John and Joan live in Loveland, CO. They share a lifelong fascination and passion for hummingbirds. Over the past 40 years they have observed these birds unmatched natural abilities by watching & feeding them from the deck of their family cabin in Westcliffe, CO.

 

It was through watching and learning, from afar, that made John want to get a closer look. He spent 2 years researching, designing, and testing a wearable hummingbird feeder. The HummViewer was finalized in 2017 and made its debut on Denver’s local NBC affiliate, NEXT with Kyle Clark. John received a patent for the HummViewer in 2021.

In 2022 John and Joan pitched HummViewer on Shark Tank. They made a deal with Daniel Lubetzky, founder of KIND brand foods, who has a shared connection with hummingbirds. A once in a lifetime opportunity for John, Joan and HummViewer!

 

The HummViewer is a wearable hummingbird feeder that provides an observational sensory experience to feed and observe hummingbirds up close.

Kate McKeough - Sundreams

I've always been drawn to the sparkly, whether beads, crystal or rocky quartz on sandy beaches. My journey as a bead artist began when, on a trip to NYC in the early 1970s, I purchased my first vial of beads. It was in 1988, when I moved to NM, that I learned the various Native American jewelry beading techniques and began creating beaded jewelry.

Graduating to window décor in 1995, and continuing to this day, I blend beadwork & gemstones with antique, vintage & new chandelier crystal prisms dangled off hand-woven dreamcatchers or crystal focals, creating unique window chandeliers & suncatchers.

 

Of special fun are my hummingbird sun catchers and window chandeliers which I continue to exhibit in stores, galleries, art shows in New Mexico, Colorado,

Texas, Arizona, and on my website, and Etsy store.

Leanne Lee

Her art is formed, manipulated, and created using various conventional and non-conventional tools. A wet saw, hand grinder and her grandfather’s antique shoe making tools help define the marble. Scrimshaw tools are also used to pick out the intricacy of her art. 

Her subjects for oil painting include wildlife and the scenic mountain beauty of Colorado and the raw desert picturesque areas of Arizona. As she was a “snowbird” between these states, she gets some phenomenal subject matter. 

Her marble comes from the Yule Marble Quarry found in the cool high mountains in Marble, Colorado. Here our nation has acquired this pure marble for some of our well-known National Monuments, such as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Lincoln Memorial. In Arizona, the Mohave County courthouse in Kingman, Arizona also has this wonderful marble. 

The Yule Marble Quarry has been considered to have the highest quality in the world. Leanne is thrilled to have the opportunity to show her art on this magnificent stone. Each piece is completed with Damar Varnish to reserve her creativity and for all to enjoy for years to come.
