Kathy Stephenson make beautiful works of art that also happen to be functional items to be used and a part of daily lives. She came to pottery while pursuing a degree in psychology at the University of New Mexico through her first pottery teacher, Jim Srubeck. While she have strayed from the strict Japanese method he taught, finding her own original artistic voice, she still carries many traits and philosophies with me.
“My main endeavor in life heart work has been having a petsitting business for 25 years. Hence, the name of the pottery business." Kathy explains. "Crossed paws on any creature evoke a sense of tranquility and grace. And the logo are the paws surrounded by an open ensō, a Zen Buddhist circle encompassing one or two brush strokes, and symbolizing strength, elegance and the void. My dog friends have enabled me to spend a lot of time in nature - a never ending inspiration.”

She graduated from the visual arts high school, Escuela de Artes y Superior de Conservación y Restauración, in Salamanca, Spain in 1999. After graduation she pursued her love of percussion and studied drumming in both Los Angeles and Guinea, West Africa. Still drawn to the visual arts, she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2013. Daniella currently lives in Placitas, NM, where she is working as a freelance artist.
“Painting is my passion and joy, and art for me is a celebration of life." says Daniella. "The media I currently work in both oil and acrylic. The subject matter I reflect in my paintings embraces music, dance, nature, and architecture, all of which inspire me as an artist. These are the elements that bring me happiness in my day to day life and I hope I can share that joy and passion with others through my art.”

Founded in 2019 by Randy and Christina Carter on the motto "We Care", and motivated by the heart-wrenching separation of Elsa Ortiz and her son Antony when they tried to immigrate to the United States in 2018. Working with Sylvia Rodriguez and Pedro Solares, they contacted Elsa and two others in the same predicament and then worked to facilitate the return of their children. Antony, age 8, was the last to be joyously reunited after 81 days of separation. Elsa and Antony still faced a life of poverty in Guatemala. The Carters brainstormed with Elsa and came up with the idea of an export business. And so Elsa Ortiz Online was born!
