Welcome to StudioMilagro
Hi! I'm Jeannie. The StudioMilagro site is just one of my personal hobbies for fun and enjoyment. Here, I showcase the beautiful works of my intimate network of artist friends, who are both well-known and emerging artists. These beautiful people bring a great mix of style and talent to the Studio, and I am happy to share their gifts with you.
What StudioMilagro Offers
The purpose of StudioMilagro is two-fold. First, it showcases the talent of some of my artist friends. These pieces are not available here for purchase, only for display and enjoyment. Any inquiries and potential purchases would need to be negotiated and conducted with each artist directly. Second, StudioMilagro offers a Private Collection page that shares many of the pieces I hold in my personal art collection, some of which may or may not be made available for purchase. Feel welcome to use my Contact page to ask about any Private Collection piece you may have an interest in.
NOTE: The Studio and its principals are not licensed fine art appraisers and do not offer appraisal services. You are encouraged to secure any desired appraisals from qualified appraisers of your own choosing.

Harland Young is widely known as one of the premiere western artists in the United States. Harland's use of rich, resonant colors and light, and his ability to capture motion, have earned him respect and praise of art critics across the country. Harland was raised on a cattle ranch in California. His love of nature is apparent in his wildlife paintings and bronzes. Harland received a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the Art Center College in Los Angeles in 1951. He has owned five art galleries from Laguna Beach to Scottsdale, Arizona. In 1970, Harland was chosen by the Greater Los Angeles Press Club to paint a portrait of John Wayne for the actor's introduction as the Press Club's Man of the Year.
My dear sweet Harland passed away in July 2015.
Wendi was introduced to a variety of art forms very early in life by her mother, who was an art instructor. In high school, Wendi focused her studies around art and won many scholastic competitions, showcasing some of her creations in the school's collection, and ultimately selling some of her work to private collectors. Wendi draws much of her inspiration from the works of Peter Marx, Henri Matisse, Paul Gauguin, Manel Anoro, and Raoul and Jean Dufy. Their well-known and admired styles encourage Wendi to fine-tune her own eye for color and to embrace her personal freedom in painting. Wendi captures the beauty and serenity of nature in her paintings. Wendi hails from Laguna Beach, California, where she has been active in the art community for many years. She has shown her work at the Sawdust Festival, participated in 2006 in a juried art show at Irvine Valley College, and her beautiful watercolors can be enjoyed in the corporate collection at Saddle Back College.

Sallie is a traditional Navajo rug weaver - a true descendant of the Taa 'Bahe' clan (Edgewater people) and the Tsi'Nagine (Black Streak people). Sallie is one of only a handful remaining Navajo weavers who received the Navajo blessing which permits Sallie to weave the Yei design of the Navajo deity, sacred to her religion. Sallie was born in the Summer of 1960 and was raised in Rainbow Springs, Arizona. Her mother's traditional Navajo techniques were passed on to Sallie and her sisters very early in life. In addition to the sacred Yei design, Sallie utilizes a variety of Navajo designs in her weavings: Two-Greyhills, Burntwater, Granado Red, Wide Ruins, Tec Nos Pos, and Thunder Storm.
Albert Joiner hails originally from Chicago. He studied Fine Arts in high school, where he developed his painting and drawing skills using models and still life subjects, created murals, and studied various artists such as Gauguin, Van Gosh, and Rembrandt. In 1985, Albert earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He then joined the Robert Daskal Group as a Surface Designer. While there, he employed his artistic ability in creating designs for women's and men's apparel. Albert later took a position as Faux Finisher with the Phoenix interior decorating firm Nielsen Diversified and executed custom-made finishes on home decorative items. Today, Albert spends most of his time in his studio experimenting with new mediums and techniques, blending the knowledge, skill, and broad experience he has gained as an artist. His current works exude a very sultry island feel and beautifully capture the heated sunsets and mysterious quiet of the island nights. Albert's use of bold colors is both adventurous and compelling.
As a young art student, Jeannie was already producing commissioned portraits, logos, and caricature drawings. Her advanced instruction as an adult came under the careful guidance of renowned artist Bill Lundquist at Scottsdale Artists School in Scottsdale, Arizona. A number of Jeannie's creations are held by private collectors and also sought after by organizations for high-profile fundraising events - most notably The Arthritis Foundation Oscar Night Ritz Carlton Fundraiser and the Arizona Opera Ball. Jeannie's clients typically favor her life forms rendered in graphite and charcoal. The portaitures are true-to-life interpretations, while the nudes by contrast are very stylized, elongated, and seductively feminine. Whichever signature style she employs, the result is always compelling and unmistakably Jeannie.
