"If I had to describe my work in a sentence, it would have to be 'fantastical with a positive edge."
Acrylic fantasy art takes a new spin with Fantasy POV, where you are given a first-person perspective in the world of imagination.
“My “canvas” of choice is the gourd and my “brush” of choice is the Sharpie Pen. I am often asked what’s my “style”; I would call it “Simple Geometrical Expressionism”. My main inspiration comes from the Southwest and Native American art. I like the simplicity of positive and negative space and find the use of simple individual geometric designs grouped together allow the simple “geometry” to appear more complicated, but still flow. I believe this makes it “easier” for people to understand the effort required to create my designs without questioning the methodology used to achieve it. www.freewebs.com/peytonartwork 361-945-0677
I make small objects with metal, some wearable and some not. My sterling silver jewelry line contains flowing designs that mimic fabric, ribbons, or leaves. My holloware collection is made from a variety of metals, primarily pewter, copper, and brass, and includes both functional and decorative pieces. terryfromm.com 832-275-2168
Landscapes and beautiful places painted in oils or acrylics. Abstracts are based on lines from nature and colors from my imagination. facebook.com/CynthiaKerens 832-752-3633
My artistic style could be considered bold and colorful with playful color tones. It's influenced by my growing up in two very different places with different customs. My works include paintings in various styles. https://sites.google.com/site/rtapiagallery/Home 832-335-3392
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
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
With her love of the outdoors, it is only fitting that jewelry artist Michelle Hoting's designs are a direct reflection of nature. Her pieces combine the elements and textures of nature with the use of natural stone, fine silver, sterling and copper often combined with found natural objects such as acorns and twigs, seeds and leaves.

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/
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
I use a variety of bright acrylic colors applied in sometimes heavy strokes, sometimes not - on a 100% cotton rag paper made by the Fabriano paper mill in Italy - since anno 1264. Michelangelo, Raphael and others used it before me ... www.artbybjorn.com 210-421-2172
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."
Cammie's Handmade Soaps
All natural, handmade designer soap bars with great designs and scents. Also, exfoliating sugar scrubs and wonderfully scented body and linen sprays. Don't miss Shampooch, my all natural dog flea shampoo bar, and SCRAM!, my all natural insect repellent.
My paintings are abstract in nature and themes vary depending on my vision and/or methodology being utilized. I like experimenting with new techniques and may incorporate wood, plywood, wire, sand, or other media into the usually brightly colored acrylic paint design. I also enjoy the 'hard edge' technique, so many paintings have a geometric flair. www.artbetweenspaces.com 713.452.9557

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
With a view of the trees at my table I sit, kneading and working the clay. Until forms and shapes appear. After they are baked and cooled, they are glazed, hand painted or left naked. Then they are crafted into necklaces, earring or bracelets.

Most of my work is medium to large scale acrylic, oil pastel, or mixed media inspired by nature with a modern edge. While pieces range from whimsical to abstract, they generally incorporate a high contrast pallette and texture created by layering either paper, modeling paste or paint. I work to evoke a sense of joy or a feeling of connection to flora and fauna. It has been referred to as "happy art".

All cans are donated...creating a circle of useful life for Mr.Tin.

Each month we host non-profits and other groups. This is who you'll find this month.
Benefit Betties is a non-profit organization based in Houston, TX. The Betties were founded by a handful of Houston hotties in 2011 as a response to a friend’s request that a calendar be sent to his deployed unit overseas. Not having a calendar of her photos, fearless leader, Al E. Cat, called on a few friends to ask if they would like to get together and have a care package party. It was so much fun and felt so good to give back to these men and women that the gals decided to form a group to continue the tradition set forth by pinups of the past. And thus, the Benefit Betties were born. www.benefitbetties.org facebook.com/benefitbetties
The BPTL is a Houston-based, non-profit traveling library and bookmobile-for-hire. As a traveling library, we travel around Houston with our own collection of literature, music, and film, and lend our items out in accordance with membership-based plans ($5/year for one item at a time, $20/year for five). As a bookmobile-for-hire, we empty out the space and make the truck and ourselves available as resources for other organizations (public libraries, artists, schools, local businesses, etc.) to utilize however they see fit (library card drives, pop-up galleries, etc.) http://thebptl.com
