Conscious Art Studios is the Art & Music Creations of John & Jeanne Fry. Every piece of Art has a story, for we believe the story connects us all

Tell us about your business.

The creations you find here are from us,a husband and wife team from the Appalachia. Nature inspires much of our artwork, Drawing on the peace that we find there, our hope is that you feel that same sense of tranquility. Animal totems are as prevalent in our pieces as they are in our daily lives. We love sharing the symbolism and beauty that they bring. We use as many natural and recycled materials in our art as possible, and we focus on our pieces telling a story, to inspire and empower our collectors. Jeanne Fry is a Contemporary Folk Painter, Art Doll Creator, and Gourd Artist. John Fry is Native Flute Performer and Composer, Gourd Artist, and Natural Instrument Craftsmen. We would like to evolve our business to focus on teaching residencies for youth and adults, as well as offering storytelling and music performances in those same settings.
