Lois Bravo, Vice President

Lois Bravo moved from the Seattle area and fell in love with quails and hummingbirds.  She started taking pictures and soon expanded her photographic talent to landscapes and other wild life.   She was encouraged to join the Art Association and show a few pictures in a judged show.   She won two ribbons and sold all three of pieces she entered in the juried show.  Since she had a business background, she became the bookkeeper and a member of the board.  Phone:  520.803.0584.  Email:

  Sue Ziegler, Membership

My husband and I moved to Sierra Vista in 2004 after we retired.  We wanted the warmer weather after years of snow and ice.  I joined the Huachuca Art Association and helped with the children’s art classes.  I had done some craft work but was encourage to try different mediums.   One of my favorites was scratch art, but I also tried watercolor.  When I discovered gourds it gave me something that I could use all my skills on.  I enjoy carving, coloring, coiling and more.  It allows me to express a whimsy that I find fun.  Each gourd says something different to me.   Phone:  520.803.0087.

Gabrielle LaFargue

Gabrielle LaFargue began her passion for lettering in 1978 when she took an adult education calligraphy course given by an accomplished calligrapher in the school district where she was teaching (North Shore Schools on Long Island in New York).  In anticipation of her retirement in 2001, Gabrielle began to take calligraphy classes in 1998 through the local community college with Pat Buttice and later private lessons with Mrs. Buttice.  Upon retirement Gabrielle had a lot more time to dedicate to her newly found talent.  She was an active member of Island Scribes and took many workshops through Society of Scribes in New York City. The Calligraphy Society of Arizona provides a number of interesting workshops that Gabrielle takes advantage of since she and her husband moved to Sierra Vista in 2009.  Phone:  520.335.6877  Email:

Robin Lara

Robin is a long-time Sierra Vista resident, business owner and local artist.  She has been a member of Huachuca Art Association for two years now and on the board of directors for one year.  She likes to be involved and also enjoys socializing with other members.  One of her favorite parts of the new gallery is the great studio where the artists can work on their pieces alone or with others.  Phone:  520.458.6530  Email:
