About the Artist

Maryann Hamel is a local artist whose work features a southwest design that is expressed through copper, brass and semi-precious stones. Maryann works from her studio in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she creates a variety of functional and decorative items: blown-glass vase holders, wind chimes, holiday ornaments, spinning wind sculptures and decorative bookmarks.

Maryann exhibits at art shows throughout the southwest, and her work has been used for fundraising events by Brandeis University, the John C. Lincoln Memorial Hospital, the Phoenix Art Museum League and other organizations. Maryann's work has become increasingly popular with residents of the southwest, and with visitors who like to bring home souvenirs and gifts.
