During my childhood, my mother (#MayaAngelou) always had prints of a wide range of artists hanging on our walls.

Her tastes were eclectic, from #Catlett, #Monet, #VanGogh, #Gauguin, Charles Wilbert White and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to Samella Lewis, Henry Ossawa Tanner, #Picasso, #Wyeth and #Degas.

It was her belief that the presence of art and creativity in a person’s daily life broadened his or her perspective of the world around them.

Intricate details, vibrant hues, and elegant, whimsical charm is the signature style of 2017 +Indian Wells Arts Festival artist Gustavo Santana's #GlassSculptures.

Using a glass-blowers' torch and sandblasting tools for hand-carving and creating images on the surface of the glass, Gustavo has created a unique technique he calls "Sea Treasures," where the sculptures give the impression they've washed up on the shore after years of battering by sand and sea.

Collected all over the world, even former President Bill Clinton has acquired Santana glass, whose stunning pieces reflect the Los Angeles-based artist's love for animals and flora.

Meet Gustavo and explore his collection of award-winning glass #sculpture at the 15th annual Indian Wells Arts Festival... an International Palette • March 31 - April 1 & 2, 2017, at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

A multi-layered creative process beginning with a large-scale #SandDrawing, photographed and then digitally enhanced, 2017 +Indian Wells Arts Festival artist Cansu Bulgu's 'Transformative Art' is a reflection of creative #meditation.

Born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, Cansu grew up with an artistic family and creativity woven into her life since early childhood. As an artist, Cansu's goal is to bridge what we see with out eyes and what we see with our Inner Eye.

"My work is 'Transformation Through Awareness,' describes Cansu. "I create transformative art, through meditation with the elements of Life: Water, Fire, Air, Earth and Light embodied in Sand, that touches the Heart and opens perceptions, following only the inspired movement from within from inception through completion."

Meet Cansu and discover life's journey through her #MixedMedia art at the 15th annual Indian Wells Arts Festival... an International Palette • March 31 - April 1 & 2, 2017, at the +Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

Incorporating natural processes such as evaporation, erosion, and oxidization, 2017 +Indian Wells Arts Festival artist Brian Giberson's #MixedMedia art and #totems present a sculptural effect that creates shadows, ridges and plateaus which alters the artistic mood as light moves across the surface.

"Art has the potential to profoundly impact an individual. It reminds us to dream, and is an oasis in the hectic, attention demanding, world," says Brian, who has also taught many forms of art such as metalsmithing, portrait sculpture and glass fusing.

Meet Brian and his wife and partner in art, jewelry-maker Sheri Cohen, at the 15th annual Indian Wells Arts Festival... an International Palette • March 31 - April 1 & 2, 2017, at the +Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
