Jennifer Landis “Feeling The Blues: A Texture Anthology”
Jennifer Landis is a self taught acrylic/mixed media artist. As a nature lover, she is inspired by the beauty of sky, water, and earth’s metallic minerals and organic shapes. Drawn to the color blue as a tranquil expressive instrument, she attempts to capture the beauty of the world around us in abstract form. Texture is used to enhance visual interest by adding depth and a platform for metallic accents.
Jennifer’s artwork has a flow that is often described as “calming” to the senses. Her hope is that her artwork conveys a sense of wonder and inspiration to others.
Anne Shackelford “Elemental Bodies”
Artwork created in harmony with high vibrations & healing intentions.
For me, I must create. It is incredibly powerful for me in my own healing work, to design pieces that mesmerize and uplift me. In turn, I pray my artwork may bring joy, inspiration and healing to whomever views it.
High vibrational artwork holds the healing intentions imparted by the artist. The energy work done on it, during or after the process, imbues the piece with high vibrations and has a profound effect due to the conscious design that surrounds it.
The higher the frequency of your vibration, the lighter you feel in your physical, emotional, and mental bodies. You experience greater personal power, clarity, peace, love, and joy.
Using sound, prayer, smudging, essential oils, sacred geometry, mandalas and elements of nature, I infuse my art with positive vibes.
The work I am creating of late has brought myself and others so much joy and inspiration. I am incredibly motivated to make pieces that are unique, uplifting, healing and beautiful, that fit into a variety of spaces. I am inspired by each moment I live in, meditation, dreams, people, nature, etc.
Cristina White-Jones “Displacement”
Cristina is a contemporary abstract mixed media artist whose work is highly textured, colorful and filled with movement and emotion. Her inspiration is often derived from an emotional state, which she then channels into her artwork. Having lived with chronic pain since the age of 11, she feels this is what truly tells her story, i.e. “displacing” the bad with something good. She graduated from Texas State University with a BFA in painting and currently resides in Buda, Tx with her husband and twin daughters. There she is a practicing artist, who also teaches art to kids and adults of all ages out of her studio.
Teresa Rodriguez “Moments Between Darkness and Light”
Landscapes and Light are my first loves in art. I call my style Abstract Landscape. They are recognizable landscapes with an abstract twist. Some are more “twisted” than others. My second love is abstract. I am amazed with how a landscape changes with time of day, season and weather conditions. The light on mountain ranges creates such stunning effects, Purple Mountain Majesty, Mountain Fluoresence, The Blues and Dark Clouds are examples light “colored” mountains.
My medium of choice is acrylic on canvas. I love the quickness and blend ability of the medium. I occasionally include paint pen, pastels, crayon and permanent marker in my work. Most of my art begins as abstract, then during the underlayment of paint it shows me what is there. The cloud shapes, mountains appear and I have to go with it. I love creating with color and the shapes, shades and personalities of clouds.
Greta Olivas “Vibrational Energy of the Cosmos”
My work may look like galaxies or outer space, but to me, they are about the universe and our place within it. Sometimes I think I must remember when I was stardust.
I work with my paint very watered down, which is a great lesson in giving up control. I always wonder if my art helped me with my personal growth or if my personal growth helped my art, but I think it’s both.
