“There’s an order of being called Celestial Artisans who are in charge of creating beauty in nature,” says artist Kamon Lilly, who acknowledges that a spiritual entity guides his hand as he creates his one-of-a-kind artwork.

Lilly uses what nature gives him, everything from emu eggs and features, to gourds, cholla cactus, Manzanita wood, coral beans, and seed pods, he hunts for art supplies everywhere he travels. “The desert is a cornucopia of materials, says the Southern Arizona artist who creates what he calls “cosmic gifts of the Earth.”

He once made and sold art as a means to survive. He has now evolved into an artist of slower, subtle craftsmanship who mixes a palette of textures, shapes, colors, and contrasts, making masterpieces of nature’s remnants.
