Arizona’s vast and varied landscape is home to hundreds of artists – from a Hopi basket-weaver in the north to a Bisbee wood-turner in the south. Arizona Artforms is a series of video portraits of the artists living among us, revealing the wonder of the creative process. The video portraits were rendered in 1989 and 1990 with the intention of de-mystifying the process of art and infusing the human element into the creation of icons and objects.
This series, produced by Eight/KAET-TV in Phoenix, Arizona was written and directed by Sheilah Britton, photographed and edited by Richard Torruellas, and edited by Richard Torruellas, Ben Avechuco and Sheilah Britton.
