The Artwork, beaded on a loom, was inspired by and created for Camelia Jade and Mike Antone. I wanted to capture an image of the exceptional beauty they deliver through song. The Elements of Earth and Sky, winged ones and flowering buds, sunset and night sky, river and mountain capture the essence of CJ and Mike’s rich inner landscapes and bring picture to their sound. The flower, “Copihue,” represents the national flower growing in the southern region of Chile, CJ’s ancestral land. While the mountains resemble Mt. Si, near which Mike resides and finds his peaceful heart. The river unites the two, with Great Spirit, symbolized as the bird, always watching over. I’m delighted to share with you my inspired creation and be in collaboration with these two phenomenal musicians! What an honor. In Gratitude, -Megan Sewell, LAC, Artist.

Thank you to my maternal and paternal grandparents for providing a rich heritage. Thank you to my loving family, friends and my sweet love, Dawn, for always believing in me.
