Scott Pryde Bio

Born and raised in San Diego California, Scott was introduced to painting by his grandmother at an early age. An artist herself, she helped lay down principles of light and color. He studied Environmental Design at Cal Poly Pomona. Working in the field of design he started his own Design Practice Pryde/Martines in Los Angeles. A resident of Lake Arrowhead both full and part time since 1995 he now splits his time between the East and West Coasts. He enjoys capturing the play of light and water and reflection. Painting on both sides of the country lends a great diversity to his work.


Julia Aubrey Bio

Julia is a native of the Inland Empire, wife, and mother of four.  While her children were in their teen, she took a couple of tole painting classes and found it to be very rewarding. During an eight-year move to Yuma, AZ she discovered a gourd creation of three Kachinas in a gift shop and fell in love.

After moving back to California and many years later moving to Crestline in 2006, with the encouragement of family she started painting again.  In 2010, she started using gourds as her canvas and quickly became addicted.

She has taught herself to wood burn, carve and weave on gourds through the Internet and books, spending numerous hours on each piece. She uses acrylics, dyes, colored pencils, two part epoxy, beads, and materials found in nature to accent her art. Through the support and encouragement of clients and family she has grown her talent and hopes to continue for many years to come.
