Barbara Hill is known for her oil paintings of animals and desert scenes. Growing up on a farm in Kansas, Hill finds inspiration from the animals that were a part of her childhood. Barbara has won many awards over the years but no longer enters competitions. Selling her artwork and painting for her own pleasure is sufficient.

Born in Denver, CO in 1954, Lee Blackwell was given a lot of encouragement to be creative. As he worked and studied in school, he always had an interest in art. He mentored under Ted Egri, a sculptor from Taos, NM, and in 1978 his ideas about art/design and business came together when he founded Blackwell Studio. After experiencing great success at the Tubac Festival of the Arts, he moved to Tubac in 1982. Four years later he purchased his shop on Plaza Road from Mortimer Wilson Jr. and married his wife, Joan VanDenbos. Through the 1980s and 90’s, with several talented craftspeople, they designed and executed a wide variety of fountains and sculptures. Currently he owns a studio and apartment at 18 Plaza Road in Tubac and works on custom orders and keeps a select inventory of fountains.
