The author

Artist F. Sehnaz Bac is celebrated for her radiantly colorful and charmingly painted stones, which she sells on Etsy as I Sassi Dell'Adriatico (The Adriatic Stones). Sehnaz lives in Alba Adriatica, Italy, a small town on the Adriatic Sea, and has more than 450,000 Facebook followers.

Artist and illustrator Marisa Redondo uses primarily watercolors and oils to create artwork inspired by nature. Growing up in the heart of San Diego, drawing was how she found a calm balance in the busy city. Currently based in Northern California, Marisa is fascinated by nature's creations and the little pieces of life that often go unnoticed, from the fine lines of feathers to the spores of a dandelion. Through watercolor, she explores the organic patterns and intricate details impressed on everything from the earth. Her paintings are a mix of the modern city she came from and the natural land where she now live.

Margaret works with each stone's shape, size, and texture to create a singular mix of art and nature. Learn more at www.etherealandearth.com.
