The Tahoe Vistana proudly features local artists who capture the magic and majesty of the Tahoe area.
Andy Cline - Roundwood Furniture Co.
The captivating art of Andy Cline embellishes each custom designed room in the Squirrel House. Cline saw the value of our “Reclaim the Spirit of Tahoe” and chose to create stories for each room through the magic of his wood working. Perhaps you will stay in a room where your headboard was once a pier standing on the shore of Lake Tahoe. Decorative tables, chairs, cabinets, and even serving utensils are the inspiration of Cline’s Roundwood Furniture Co.

Bill Stevenson was born into a family of photographers. Both his great-great grandfather and great grandfather were photographers living on the edge of the frontier. For Bill photography is about the natural world and exploration. He has spent years looking at maps and wandering the landscape searching for the best that nature has to offer; a combination of beautiful place, stunning light and perfect moment. It may take years of returning to location until everything is right and the image complete. He hopes his photographs communicate all of this to you.

"Every day is a blessing to me as an artist. My work follows the rhythms found in nature and music. Those vibrations flow off my brush and onto the canvas with a direct connection to the driving force of the universe. By painting out in nature, you can almost hear the rushing stream, the song of the birds, and the wind billowing my canvas. I paint from my heart, there are no preliminary drawings or idea sketches. My work only progresses naturally; confidently using the brush to draw my painting. This connection delivers to the viewer of my paintings a world of joy, rhythm and unbridled aliveness." - Jude Bischoff

Michael Eadington's work has always followed his passions. Being raised around Lake Tahoe gave him an almost religious respect for the beauty of the region. As he states, "To get out and climb mountains or hike to beaches, chasing the twilight hours, always reaffirms my belief. My landscapes are an attempt to share this passion. I have spent years fine tuning both the technical shooting, printing, and presenting aspect of both photography and art reproduction, each an art in itself."

Tony Spiker discovered photography 10 years ago when he joined the Navy, where he proudly served as a photographer on board the USS Tarawa. After 5 years of active duty, he joined the Naval Reserves and is currently stationed with Combat Camera Group Pacific as a still combat photographer. In between deployments to the Middle East, Tony owns and operates Vista Gallery and Framing with his wife, Melissa. His images are filled with an intensity and drama reminiscent of Ansel Adams.
