Since moving from China, Lydia Quinones has been an Arizona resident for five years.  When she’s not teaching high school art, she’s focused on ceramics, weaving, and painting for private commissions.  Her public paintings, which are recognizable by their bright colors, can be found on benches and parking meters in downtown Phoenix and Glendale.  Her artworks usually address aspects of Chinese culture or Arizona history, incorporating her experiences of living in Asia with her fascination with the Southwest.

Her butterfly “Beyond the Stars” is currently on display at the Edward Jones office of Michael J. Maroon at 16838 E. Palisades, B-123. Check it out and pick up a map to preview other butterflies in the offices of our sponsors.
