September 6, 2014 Artist Roster!
I use natural fiber such as wool, alpaca, and angora as my media, transforming the raw fiber by hand dying and using a variety of felting and surface design techniques in my creative process. My style is expressive and impressionistic and centers on vivid colors and textures to create striking visual movement. My representational art is primarily landscapes and botanical images. I also creates stunning non-representational art in the process of exploring composition, medium, and color. www.michellebowersart.com 281-299-9049
I like to paint in bold vivid colors and will paint any subject. The vast majority of my work is acrylic, but I've recently painted a couple of oils on canvas. The size of my paintings varies from 2" X 2" to 3' X 5'. I suppose that I paint about life. 281-886-2400
I describe my art as Encaustic meets Digital / Mixed Media. Upon layers of blended beeswax I will add a variety of images - sometimes digitally altered - and objects. I also hand craft my own frames to complement the pieces. JoelAndersonArt.com 713-829-1065
My paintings are done in acrylics with an emphasis on composition, design, and straight forward use of color. I use rhythm of application technique, my paintings have an affinity for structures, rooms, buildings, and street scenes with a slight touch of whimsy. 281-387-7754
I paint with alcohol ink on tiles or yupo paper. AI is a fun and colorful medium! It only works on non-porous surfaces, and is also very unpredictable because it easily spreads and blurs and drips! But that is the beauty of it and also its unusual poetry. Although it is hard to “paint” with alcohol ink in the proper way, with brushes, it can be done, often with fun, and non-traditional results. But in addition to painting with brushes, I also let the ink drip, run, drizzle, or I spray it with 91% alcohol to further “mess with it!” It is fun and very striking to look at. www.ilovealcoholink.imagekind.com
In creating my pieces, I want viewers to feel them as much as they see them. I combine realistic images with the elemental use of color and texture. I strive to induce a feeling that renders words somewhat inadequate.
My paintings are based from direct observation. I take my French easel out into the city I call home, Houston TX. The subject matter, although always changing, is often the confluence of what I love about Houston; it's buildings, bayous, highways, tree lined streets and lush parks and gardens. I hope you can see the beauty of Houston in my Urban Landscapes. 713-305-6626 http://deatlyart.com
Art by Alicia

Photography consisting of wildlife, architecture, landscape or just day to day images captured naturally. Pictures come in both black and white and a very colorful scale. Images come framed, unframed and matted in an 8x10 format. facebook.com/artxalicia
I am a multimedia artist focusing on the formal aspects of Art--line variation, texture, rhythm, color, space, etc. My original drawings, watercolor paintings, and other elements are encased within layers of mixed-mediums. The nature of the mediums dictate the compositions and ensure that no two are alike. They are created on custom made wood panels which eliminates the need for framing. www.amandaarmistead.com 281-796-7445
I create art interpretations of life. Each moment of time is different. The lighting, the people the moment of time itself. I capture life using a instant film camera then i interpret its spirit as a artist. I paint on top of the actual photograph ( 2.5 inches x 5 inches ) creating a one of a kind art piece. The photo is now art and there is no other copy of the actual photo. When the art is complete it represents that one of a kind moment in time. I call my technique : LIQUID EMULSION. The eye of a photographer. The heart of a artist.
My art is available both as original and in printed versions. pixels.com/art/all/jerry+poscovsky/all 713-569-4204
Acrylic landscapes and abstract paintings. I get my inspiration from nature and process it through all my feelings and emotions. The result is shown in my art work as a way to express myself. If any of my art will make anybody happy for a moment, my mission is accomplished. www.artspan.anaburke.com 281-543-9868

c.s.ellington (Camille Ellington)
Ellington paints in acrylic, with much water and sometimes sand. Her painting is in an impressionistic style with techniques that feel more like carving. "It has been said that painting is half-way between sculpting and drawing," she says. "It is a wonderful experience."
Maggie's Meltdown produces jewelry in both precious and alternative metals. The designs come straight out of Maggie's head and she does her best to reproduce what she sees.

Mary G. Wilkinson Painter/Printmaker
Light and texture studies. My subject matter is abstracted from the garden
and other immediate surroundings, usually but not limited to botanicals. Read more.
We all have the desire to belong and to connect. From the first cave drawings to today's company logos or school mascots, we have used shared symbols to communicate with each other, form social and religious communities, remember together, comfort or inspire each other, and share our life stories. Symbols reflect what we are often unable to put into words. I collect symbolic antique and vintage wax stamps, wax seals from antique documents, and intaglios from the Grand Tour, from which I handcraft beautiful symbolic fine silver and bronze wax seal jewelry that has unique meaning or enduring symbolism. www.thesilveracorn.com 281-794-1180

Meraki Artists Consortium is a group of four artists who work in mixed media with a specialization in polymer clay. We all live in the Houston Texas area and feel that life is reflected in our art. Each of us has a style all her own from whimsical to elegant. Our designs include jewelry, vessels, purses, and other objects. Some include fine metals such as silver or gold and all are created with the intent of fostering good will in the eye of the beholder.
The word ""Meraki"" [may-rah-kee] is an adjective that modern Greeks often use to describe doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put ""something of yourself"" into what you're doing, whatever it may be.
Betsy Fraser, Joey Barnes, Paula Kennedy, and Milli Jewell welcome you to our Meraki world of polymer art!

I make handcrafted furniture, sculptures, lamps and art creatively designed with an industrial bent using all my skills learned over a lifetime of wood and metalworking. Most of all, I enjoy sourcing the reclaimed materials and the inspiration that comes from finding new ways to use existing items. My furniture makes use of a variety of elements : steel, copper, iron, and the entire spectrum of hardwoods: oak, pecan, birch and maple. I get great satisfaction from making something that works perfectly for a customer’s environment, something custom and unique that can’t be purchased at any retail store. www.carpendeum.com 713-315-7150

I enjoy working in a wide variety of media and currently my main focus has been creating jewelry redesigns (altered art). I greatly enjoy redesigning jewelry as finding just the right components to collage together into one-of-a-kind pieces is exciting! Another focus is embossed metal art (repujado). Working in 36 gauge metal sheets, I emboss my linear designs which I then embolden with blocks of bright enamel paint. I developed this bold style of embossed metal from the idea to keep the designs clear and colorful which results in a stained glass quality in its simplicity. My favorite motifs include the sun, sunflower, and heart. It makes me happy when my work brings happiness to others!

I use several different techniques in creating my fused glass pendants. I use powder, frit, and metals to create reactions in the glass, giving each piece a uniqueness all its' own. I cut and shape each jewelry piece, by hand, using saws, a wet belt sander, or a lap belt. For my larger pieces, such as plates, bowls, etc., I often use a sandblaster to expose the multiple color layers of powder I used in designing my piece. All my fused glass pieces are cold worked for a polished, professional art piece. www.jewelrybybellarose.com 713-504-1758
I generally work in projects. Some of the projects draw from pop or subpop culture, but most of the other bodies of work are visual allegories. My paintings contain figures, actions, imagery, and/or events that convey an underlying meaning or emotion. I enjoy embracing humor where it surfaces and am unafraid of vibrant colors.
Unique Gifts from Reclaimed Wood: Cutting boards, Bowls, Salt & Pepper Mills, Fine Writing Instruments and Wine Bottle Stoppers are just a few examples. Each month I add new products. http://www.rsacreations.com 832-276-8557
