I create artwork that I "paint" with paper. Instead of a brushstroke with paint I use a " brushstroke" of paper. There are also hidden gems that are fun to look for. Some easy to find, some very hard to find. patriciawhiddon.com 281-685-1759

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
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."
Acrylic, House Paint, Mixed Media, Collage, etc. on Wood, Canvas, Metal, Board, Found Pieces, etc., and Found Object Sculpture.
Basically, whatever I can lay my hand to. I can do a lot with a little.
Blue Dog meets Far Side ... would be a good description. My art is whimsical and fun. Sometimes it will make you laugh out loud and sometimes you will smile inside. But it will always make you feel good. 713-816-2877 www.aprilmurphy.com

On Stage at 3pm: Leslie Krafka!
Yes, It’s paper! My collage process begins when I paint and texture paper of all kinds to create my "palette." At any given time I have over 1,000 sheets of painted paper in every hue. Papers will include sheet music, sandwich wrappers, dictionary pages, etc. The paper is torn by hand and placed individually. Take a closer look. You might find a piece of poetry or a technical drawing hiding in plain sight. www.LisaMoralesMixedMedia.com 713-240-1227
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
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!

In addition to Ralph’s traditional gouache landscapes and Nell’s mini florals, Ralph and Nell are now creating a collection of small, whimsical works of art they refer to as “Desktop Gems”. Many of them are collaborative works of imagination, with each of them doing a part of the artwork to create a colorful quirky piece of art.
I primarily use acrylic in my paintings, occasionally mixing some type of textured or blending medium. My paintings range from abstracts, including "jazz abstracts", to more Creole cultural works of art.

I am a welder by trade and I’ve been using my artistic talent to turn ordinary pieces of metal into something unique for 3 years now. http://danielsuniqueartforms.weebly.com (713) 446-8397

My work utilizes an artistic process that begins with an ink drawing on paper, usually inspired by Nature or man's presence in Nature, that is mechanically distressed and then enhanced with a combination of inks, colored pencils, watercolor washes and varnishes. http://www.angieartwork.com 713-530-3664

Designing Re-Purposed Jewelry utilizing vintage components is one of my favorite creative endeavors. I enjoy assembling elements into something re-envisioned and one-of-a-kind. Elements may include brooches/pins, sash pins, dress/fur clips, watch fobs, cufflinks, bracelets, earrings, and shoe clips. Other elements may include vintage keys, car emblems, clock ornamentation, belt buckles, buttons, rosary beads, chandelier crystals, and anything else that may lend itself well to design.

Abstract paintings in acrylics and oils.
One of a kind dichroic jewelry. Art to wear = Earrings, Pendants and Art Glass. By artist Jeanne Haner.
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
With over 15 years experience in visual arts, I mostly enjoy working with acrylics, graphite and ink. My work has been described as "eccentrically high in detail" and that sums it up pretty good! My ideas are all creations from my own silly little brain, and I live for the smile on people's faces when they see my work... that's what it's all about for me and why I create. My motto is simple: have fun with everything and always question the possibility!
Unique design in women's jewelry using Swarovski Crystal, the finest stone and pearls available, and .925 sterling silver. 713-385-0459 www.ticjewelrydesigns.com
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

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
