March 7, 2015 Artist Roster!
Mixed Media Assemblage and Photography www.22sixty.com
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
My art is all about repurposing. I take damaged vinyl records, smash them with a high heel, and create beautiful mosaics, depicting everything from basic shapes to complex figures and scenes. Each piece is literally one-of-a-kind, I hope you love them as much as I do! http://www.erintade.com 409-728-3088
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.

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.
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
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!

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
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. Maggie had studied with & been influenced by Thomas Mann, Richard Salley, Andy Cooperman and Rosy Revolver. The work runs the gamete from modern minimalist to industrial gypsy and all points in between. http://maggiesmeltdown.blogspot.com 713-906-6880
I create my artwork using recycled metal. I can produce just about anything with metal including paintings, sculptures, and garden accents. 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
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
Currently I am generating abstract, expressionist paintings using primarily acrylics as my tool of experimentation. Toss a Pop Art influence into the mix to round out what impacts my style. Mixed media is an increasing influence with many works incorporating plaster, copper wire, organic elements - sand, salt, rock, glass as well as print media. A few even include a favourite old shirt to worn to wear again. My art is diverse in subject and is extremely colorful and textural. It should provoke more than one sense in you.
Sculpture, art metal and jewelry designed and fabricated by Jeff Woodruff
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
My current work focuses on the emotional and healing impact of art and painting through the use of color, symbols, and texture. While I have always loved working in oil, most of my current work explores the versatility and unique expression of acrylics.
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 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 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
