The Heritage Village Has A New Logo!


Meet the Artists
Art Magickal
William Mickey and Terra Stone

William Mickey and Terra Stone, the artists of Art Magickal, are year-round  residents who moved to Crystal River over 4 years ago. Lovers of nature, they enjoy kayaking in the endless waterways of rivers, lakes and the Gulf, hiking under the canopy of undisturbed forests and experiencing the rich variety of flora and fauna that thrives in Citrus County. In fact, it was these very attributes that caused them to choose Crystal River as their home.


Attracted to beauty in its many forms, William and Terra enjoy touring Historic Crystal River, and always bring guests to enjoy the downtown & charming Heritage Village. The artists are excited to contribute to the ambiance through their designing of the new logo of The Shoppes of Heritage Village.

You may recognize the distinctive styles of the artists of Art Magickal in the Adventure Map of Citrus County, as well as the detailed souvenir map of Kings Bay and of Homosassa. William and Terra can be reached at 352-322-0802.
