For more than 25 years, contemporary artist Salvatore Principe has created from the heart. Born of Italian heritage and raised in Manhattan, Principe found early inspiration in his city’s striking diversity and the pop-culture of the 1970’s, most notably by association with Andy Warhol.
Principe’s flair for aesthetics launched him into the New York art scene by way of mixed-media sculptures that attracted such notable collectors as Cicily Tyson and Miles Davis. Since then, the artist’s prolific body of work has grown to include paintings, collage and sculpture on canvas, including the renowned Signature Hearts collection. His images and namesake now grace a line of privately labeled wine, sold worldwide, as well as a line of gift products available at fine retailers.
And now his work is JAMMIN with us! We currently have two of his pieces for sale at jam.
Love Is In The Air (below) & Imagine (shown at top).
Both contain his signature hearts and are the only pieces for sale in Arizona!
Salvatore’s self-titled coffee table book, in collaboration with Marie Hughes, features the most notable pieces of his collection and is now available for sale at jam as well. $40 each & PERFECT for Valentine's Day!!!!

I have written in this space for 47 months, since February 2007. Go back 47 months before that. It’s March 2003. The WSOP Main Event has never drawn seven HUNDRED players. Full Tilt didn’t even exist. If you go back another 47 months, for all I know dinosaurs were still walking the earth.
We LOVE him and will have him around as long as he lets us!!! That could turn into ages and ages if it's left up to me! He is such a contribution to what we have going on here at jam. Talk about a creative mind! He is a creative master-mind! I am stoked to see what his next projects will be and thrilled that he is working with us!
"We could have talked with Michael for at least six hours on one hand . . . he is just so smart and has so much information to share," said Ross.

Learning how to whip up a loose do in minutes . . . yea, we did that!
Celebrity beauty stylist, Michele Lee showed us how to create a modern undo or a casual style worn down for each of our hair types & lifestyles.
She asked that the jammers bring to class their at home hair kits: Styling tools, bobby pins, clips, hair products, etc. Mentioning that it doesn't matter if it's from Taglio or Target . . . she had us bring whatever we had and all of it.
We got organized and cleaned up in this class!
One lucky jammer won a complimentary Organic Airbrush Tan give away and anyone else that wished to indulge in a natural glow was offered at special $20 rate. Yippie!
Thanks for the confidence in creating easy beautiful styles that worked for all of us!
Michele's work has been seen in ELLE, Glamour, Sport's Illustrated, Maxim, , VH-1,Style Network, & more.
She'll be back next Sunday the 23rd for her

Caroline Rocha! The sparkling vision and creator behind CMR Designs!!!
Starting out in a small farming community in Central Valley of California and transitioning to Chicago, Los Angeles, San Fransisco and Colorado.
Caroline now makes her home in
San Luis Obispo, CA.
Living in a variety of locations and surroundings have influenced her creatively in many ways as she is always very present and
inspired by her surroundings. From her beginning, she knew she wanted to be an artist - that her artistic career was inevitable, and she constantly looks for new ways to exercise her talents.
Aside from creating these one-of-a-kind pieces, her pursuits also
include sculpting & large canvas paintings.
She feels that her work communicates her joy and freedom, and her ability to express herself in a way that she has been called.
"I feel free, released, joyful, healthy, thankful, refreshed,
and alive. I feel gratitude that I am able to do what I love and affect
other people along the way,
and am especially grateful to my family who
have been extremely supportive and
encouraging to push me harder that I push myself".

Each cuff is uniquely crafted and one of a kind.
The cuffs are just as much about the process
as the end result.
Caroline hand paints each bracelet; then it is adorned with Swarovski
crystals and signed by the artist. She started making bracelets as a hobby and it quickly transformed into so much more - as an instant demand was created.
Her bracelets are now sold in stores all over the country
and the amount of reps selling her products continues to increase.
She feels that appreciation and love of art lie in the eye of the beholder, and that everyone has something to contribute. She not only feels that there is always something new to learn, Caroline also sees so much potential in those around her.
Her work is always evolving, changing and growing.
