The December 7, 2013 Artist Roster
Art has always come naturally for Sheryl, and while shopping in Round Top, TX, Sheryl found an armless mannequin. Sheryl brought the sitting female figure home and named her “Mandy.” Mandy sat in the McDonald household for a year, almost as a part of the family. It was in the spring, 2007 when Sheryl woke up with a wonderful idea. Mandy became Sheryl’s canvas as she used a very detailed technique using hundreds of photographs that transformed Mandy into a unique art form. Since completing Mandy, Sheryl has completed several other mannequins, both male and female and now stars and other objects such as tables & home furnishings.

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."
Lorena Fernandez is an artist, poet and coach. She is the author of two bilingual art and poetry books; Spiritual Healing With Art - Curacion Espiritual Con Arte and How To Exist, An Impractical Guide - Como Existir Guia Impractica. Her mixed media paintings feature bold swaths of saturated colors and figures with sweeping lines. Dynamic shapes and swirling tones give an impression of cosmic momentum and ebullient energy. Bodies often appear floating powerfully across the canvas, sometimes out from confining squares or frozen in self-aware poses. Cut-out photographs often qualify these figures. She was born in Merida, Venezuela. www.lfcreative.org
Original folk art - I am Adriana Whitney, a self-taught folk artist.
I work on canvas and wood. My favorite medium is Acrylic and crackle
effect. I love to experiment with mediums, paper, buttons, wood and I also
love to create primitive cloth and clay dolls with an antique feeling.
Sustainable jewelry and fine art prints. Each piece of jewelry is lovingly handmade using steel wire and freshwater pearls, contrasting the industrial look of wire with the classic feel of pearls. Prints are hand-pressed onto tree-free paper, featuring minimalist designs inspired by nature and geometry. http://www.studiogreenbean.com/
LuvHed, Carey Merrell
My name is Carey Merrell, and I am the designer for LuvHed. I started making jewelry in 1988, while living in NYC. I am pretty much self-taught, and love working with my hands to create beautiful and interesting things. As I create each piece, I listen to music--all kinds of music--and the blessings from the songs are lovingly woven into the beads. For example, I just finished a mediation mala necklace of 108 beads. While I was making the necklace, I was listening to Kirtan chants, and by the time I was finished the necklace was infused with the intention of the chant: Know what you want, and Ask for it. The universe will answer...manifest your dreams! luvhedjewelry.etsy.com 503-702-4423

Contemporary Abstract Paintings using mixed media, acrylics, oil pastels, charcoal, gesso, graphite on Masonite (wood). Resin is also applied on top of the artwork as a final stage of the creative painting's process. http://www.artbyarchitect.com (404) 448 1236

Enchanted Photo Design
My signature style with Enchanted Photodesign offers a luminous, ethereal view of a widely diverse array of subjects, from personal portraits to hard-edged urban views, from wildflowers to vivid graffiti.

We take the ordinary tin can and elevate it into an unusual and beautiful piece of art with the help of a torch and hand molding. Every item is hand cut with no patterns creating a patina and shape unique to that particular can. Just like the armadillo....he's an enjoyable mystery! Lanterns create elegant illuminations....Planter/windchimes sound from lids...Creatures that make you chuckle....and sculpture you simply enjoy either inside or out in the garden. All cans are donated...creating a circle of useful life for Mr.Tin.
I create fused glass in my studio; beginning with sheets of glass, I cut, stack, and shape pieces and then fuse them together to create original functional art. Most are sandblasted and fire polished to give a matte finish to add an extra dimension to the art piece. Example of my work and contact information can be found at Rocketgirlglass.com
Beyond Her is a collection of artisan housewares, apparel and gifts. We start with original designs, which we screen print on heritage fabrics or print using recycled paper. The look is fresh and modern - meets - natural and organic. We call it Art for Living.
Beyond Her has new lines for fall, including pet accessories (Beyond Fur) and home furnishings (Beyond Her @ Home)
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.
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.
