Norm Olson has been a photographer since the early 1970’s. He has photographed weddings and rock concerts, worked on publications when he was in college, worked as a photographer for a convention and visitors’ bureau, exhibited his work in area galleries, and he does professional printing for art exhibits. Norm was strongly influenced by his ecology education in college and in graduate school. He is a professional biologist and he takes images of viruses with an electron microscope.

Norm moved to San Diego almost six years ago. He was dismayed that there was a danger that a natural, ecological community, the La Jolla - Casa Beach seals were in danger of being destroyed by individuals who had no concern for the animals. Since that time he has photographed the new seal pups every spring and he has donated over 800 photo cards, as well as other images, to the cause, with all of the proceeds going to save the seal colony. Norm specializes in photographing the seals, flowers, and landscapes.

Linda Kelson was born in Boston , Mass and attended the Art Institute of Boston. She obtained her degree in Fine Arts from Fairleigh Dickinson University. She has been painting and selling her work in San Diego since 1983. Her preferred subjects are animals, people and abstract landscapes. But the real subject of each piece is always color. The color of each work is used not only to express the personality of the subject and the emotional content of the story, but is used to evoke specific feelings from the viewer. "I love to experiment with the way colors interact with each other - the way they can change each other, and the way they can change the way we feel about something." Most of the works are on canvas and in oils. Although many utilize mixed media combining oil paint with oil pastels and metal leaf. Linda and her husband have been active animal rights activists for many years. All of the proceeds from her current series of animal paintings are being donated to San Diego Animal Advocates.
