#AZCreatives: the local artists who inspire us

Through a mix of mediums, formats and perspectives local artists illuminate the unknown, color the previously black-and-white and add depth to our understanding of our surroundings, our lives, circumstances and more. Through our research process for the <i>Thought provokers</i> series we’ve come across so many works of art that have inspired us and we’d like to share some of those great examples of visual and performing arts, photography and other creative works with you below.

My favorite place in the world to shoot is the desert. The mountains and the prairies and the oceans (…white with foam) are 👌👌, but I am infatuated with the desert. The hazy skies and landscapes that so sharply contrast my Midwest home state have me in loveeee. So, science lesson y’all… Let me tell you about Saguaro Cacti… I was completely fascinated by these tree-like spiky giants. 1. They are pronounced sue-war-ohs. Saying it otherwise will make you look like a total tourist (guilty 🙋). 2. They can grow over 40 feet tall and live to around 150 years 😳. 3. And if being pretty alive wasn’t enough, even their skeletons are beautiful! I was finding pieces of beautiful swiss cheese looking driftwood on the ground, and the lovely local couple in this picture told me what it was! ⁣ #phxphotographer #scottsdalephotographer #phoenixphotographer #phoenixweddings #phoenixengagement #brideandgroomphotos #shesaidyes #fieldphotos #romanticwedding #anthemarizona #theknot #destinationphotography #wedding #katelynturnerphotography #realphotographer #destinationphotographer #saguaro #arizona #cacti #desert #az #azphotographer #phoenixwedding #theknotweddings #azcouple #azweddingphotographer #azbride

    This is so lovely. Phoenix surely has a lot of artist waiting to be discovered. I enjoy looking at those photos as I see bits of what is Phoenix looks and feels like. I am totally amazed and mesmerize by the glass butterfly. It such a lovely piece of art. Thank you for sharing this with us. And more power, I’m looking forward to more of this wonderful artist.
