Meet the Artists
Sam Ortiz is a ceramic potter artist. Ortiz was born in Michoacán, Mexico. He and his family moved to Guymon, Okla. when he was 15 years old. Ortiz’s primary art medium is ceramic clay, but he also enjoys painting and drawing.

Rebekah Ann (Warner) Coen is a traditional artist based in her hometown of Elkhart, Kansas. She is married and is the proud mother a 3-year-old daughter and 6-month-old son. Coen’s artwork tends to have a contemporary western theme; her inspiration comes from her love of horses which came at an early age. While Rebekah possesses a wide skill set as an artist, she has always been drawn to painting- particularly watercolor and now acrylic. She has familiarity with most 2-Dimensional mediums: graphite, colored pencil, oil medium, acrylic, pastel, and watercolor. She also has experience in sculpture and ceramics.

Joshua Mark was born in Hampton, Virginia in 1996 but was raised in the Oklahoma panhandle and southwest Kansas. He started to learn about art at the young age of eight and it stuck with him ever since. Joshua has accumulated at least over 100 filled sketchbooks worth of sketches, ink work, and whatever he could get his hands on that can create something.
