Aimée M. Everett

"A View Of The Inside"

Oil on Canvas | 16" x 20" | $300

This piece is the first piece in a two part series. I wanted to show the softness that we all have inside, male or female. I wanted the soft flesh colors to represent what we try so hard to hide from everyone, even ourselves.

"It’s Coarse On The Inside"

Oil on Canvas | 16" x 20" | $300

This piece is the second in a two part series. This piece shows the alternative side to being calm and serene on the inside. The times when we may not be at our best.

"Midst"

Oil and Thread on Canvas | 24" x 24" | $450 - SOLD

Midst is influenced by overwhelming times in our lives. We may seem to fade away in the midst of it all, but even if a thin veil of yourself remains, you can still make it through.

"Waterfalls"

Watercolor and Copper in Birchwood Frame | 16" x 19" | $400

Waterfalls is simply a self portrait.

Aurora’s Blush

"Hand Engraved Pendants (Aluminum)"

14/20 Gold Filled Chain $172

One of my main missions as a jewelry designer is to empower the wearer of my pieces to feel like the goddess they are. Gold naturally evokes feelings of luxury and decadence, so I wanted to showcase this in a large statement necklace for the modern goddess. I incorporated large gold shapes, and gold coin accents to add texture and dimension to this hand engraved beauty!

"Magnesite Turquoise Spikes"

Gold Vermeil Chain Hand Engraved Pendants (aluminum) | $135

When in Texas wear Turquoise, right?! I have always felt like the two go together like peanut butter and jelly! My inspiration for this hand engraved piece was to create a new necklace for the modern Texas beauty. We always see pairings of Silver and Turquoise, but I equally absolutely love a stunning Gold and Turquoise combination.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

My name is Vanessa Nicole and I have been an Austinite now for eight years! (Texas girl my whole life – got here as fast as I could!) I started hand engraving guitars a few years ago, and fell in love with it so much. I was determined to utilize the skills I had learned and feature them in jewelry! I have always enjoyed making jewelry ever since my kindergarten macaroni necklace days. I love having a design in my mind that I want to create, and then rising to the challenge of actually making that vision come to life. Jewelry is such an exciting medium because it is recognized and celebrated as art, but you get the extra bonus of wearing it as a little treasure wherever your journey takes you.

"Archie"

Found objects, wood | 12" x 3" | $160 - SOLD

I made these 3 robots with the celebration theme in my mind. Their names are the same initials as “Share Art Heal” on purpose. Shannon, Archie and Heather are living proof that celebration is a way of being!

Archie is a true robot-being. Meaning if one’s life is primordial, acknowledging one’s joy, one’s achievements, one’s arts.

"Heather"

Found objects, wood | 16" x 5" | $320

I made these 3 robots with the celebration theme in my mind. Their names are the same initials as “Share Art Heal” on purpose. Shannon, Archie and Heather are living proof that celebration is a way of being!

Heather is a constant being of celebration. Believing in art as a form of life’s celebration. And yes, glitters are part of it!

"Shannon"

Found objects, wood | 16" x 5" | $320

I made these 3 robots with the celebration theme in my mind. Their names are the same initials as “Share Art Heal” on purpose. Shannon, Archie and Heather are living proof that celebration is a way of being!

Shannon takes celebration to a all new level. Flowers and glitter are meant to be together.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

My life is dedicated to making things. I love to get to a final result, but all the prior steps (understanding the meaning, imagining the process, making) are equally rewarding. Wherever, whenever, I would always create things, because it is what makes me tremendously happy.

"Vision"

Enamel paint on illustration board | 7" x 5" | $325 - SOLD

This image celebrates eyeballs. Our most powerful sense is sight, which tells us a ton of information about the world around us and most importantly lets us create and enjoy art!

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

In general I'm a laid back guy with a simple life — no smartphone, no car, no kids, no dreams of living in a mansion. However, I balance out that frugality by creating complicated art with the utmost seriousness, fearlessly making my innermost thoughts and emotions visible. Who I am is reflected in my art so I use it as a mirror to help me with self-improvement, while at the same time I work hard to share it with others so it can guide and heal society at large.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

In the search of that deep connection between myself and the elements I create objects of decor based on personal interpretations of elements of nature, like the bark of a tree, water ripples, and seed pods. Working with diverse metals and metalworking techniques, I explore form, texture, and contrast.

I grew up between Venezuela and Ecuador, received a BFA in metalsmithing from the University of North Texas and now I work from my home studio in South Austin.

"Floruit"

Mixed Medium (resin, acrylic paint, balsa wood, repurposed lumber from Austin build sites.) | 19.25"x17.75"x3.5" | $395

After several months of dormancy the Cherry Blossom blooms with an abundance of color and fervor for a fleeting moment in time. Floruit is a snapshot of the impermanent and fulfilling manifestation of thoughts becoming things. This art represents the moment after a time of introspection and reflection, it's the palpable point in time when we give life to new ideas and let them flourish. Keep it Creative and Always Inspire!

"Echo"

Sculptural Block Lumber Art | 19.5”x20”x3.5” | $750 - SOLD

Mixed media on repurposed lumber from Austin build sites.

My leafless naked Ink Trees are symbols of strength, growth, and the vulnerability of displaying your true unedited self. Like our relationships with one another, they also illustrate how we expand in a multitude of directions but are all connected by a single trunk growing from deep roots. In this piece, BWK Ink Tree Art is reflected by mirrors to create a beautiful and symbolic picture of how we “reflect” the people who affect our lives. We emulate the ones we love and are also molded by the little rascals with whom we clash.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

As a graduate of The Art Institute of Houston, Brian William Kirchner studied visual communication which guided him to become a mixed media fine artist and pen and ink illustrator of trees. His mixed media pieces are made from repurposed discarded lumber plucked from Austin build sites. The discarded wood is re imagined into complex wood block compositions with the help of resin, acrylic paint, and inventiveness. Nature, the cosmos, and the law of attraction inspire the creation of each BWK piece and as a result you will find the intricacies of a tree to the expansiveness of celestial objects as a recurring theme in

Brian William Kirchner’s art.

These pieces represent a celebration of the four seasons as depicted by nature and the figure of a woman within this nature. They are my interpretation of the French Art Nouveau movement of the 19th Century where curved lines were used in an abstract way, often incorporating the curved lines of nature to accentuate the pose of the figures.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

As an off and on news junkie, my daily routine usually involves checking into world affairs, but this has been an exercise in frustration as of late, so I find myself unplugging and delving into my creative side lately. I consider myself to be very fortunate that I have discovered this creative outlet. It is the ultimate in personal freedom. After all, I have the freedom to create a world as I see it… in all its beauty if I so choose.

When I’m not creating creature friends, my husband and I like to go road tripping to search for interesting natural wonders, historical haunts or abandoned sites to explore.

"Walnut Mead Goblet with Valkyrie"

Walnut | $220

Two things Terry and Sarah Snow have in common with the vikings: They love woodworking and festive libations.

Drink from this goblet and feel the power of the Gods.

"Large Acacia Off-Set Bottle Stopper"

"Bees Bees Bees"

Ampersand scratchboard with colored scratchboard inks | 5x7" | $225 - SOLD

I love drawing bees. They’re such important little creatures and I find myself wanting to create them all the time. I figured I’ve done so many in black and white so I decided to throw some color into this piece! This piece is framed in one of my custom handmade CJTProducts recycled wood frames.

"Curiosity"

Ampersand scratchboard | 5" x 7" | $195 - SOLD

I’m very lucky to live in a place like Austin where part of the culture revolves around bats. They’re one of my favorite little animals. I’ve done a few long-eared bats and wanted to change it up so I found these little Honduran ghost bats that I liked. This piece is framed in one of my custom handmade CJTProducts recycled wood frames.

"Happy as a Clam"

Ampersand scratchboard | 5" x 7" | $195 - SOLD

I usually don’t create many mammals aside from bats because mammals are seen so often in the art world. But I recently saw a video of a little otter and fell in love with them and had to create one. I really loved working the textures so I’m looking forward to doing some more small mammals in the future. This piece is framed in one of my custom handmade CJTProducts recycled wood frames.

"Lewe"

Ampersand scratchboard | $800 - SOLD

I love shoebill storks. I don’t know why but they’re one of my favorite animals, so I've been thinking a long while on how I was going to create them in a composition I felt they deserved. I wound up creating this jungle scene to give the stork a glow and surround it with life. I named this piece "Lewe" which means "life" in Afrikaans, which is a language spoken in some of the areas this stork lives in.

The large moth is a stylized African Lunar Moth, their bodies are usually a little fatter, but I slimmed the one I drew to match the composition better. The little wasp is a Black and Yellow Mud Dauber. The frog is a Grey Tree Frog. The beetle on the leaf is a Shield Beetle. And lastly the spider in the top right is a Spiny Backed Orb Weaver.

This piece is framed in a very special custom handmade CJTProducts frame. The wood is reclaimed naily board (longleaf pine) which is about 120 years old, from the historic district of Luling TX. Its one of what will be a very short line as naily board can be hard to come by.

Nature has always been my biggest inspiration. My goal is to replicate the beauty of wildlife in as many different media as I can.

"Eric Tessmer #1"

Large Format Color Film |16" x 20" | $200

"Eric Tessmer #2"

Large Format Color Film |16" x 20" | $200

These photos were taken of my friend and local Austin guitarist extraordinaire, Eric Tessmer. Eric is one of my favorite people as well as one of the best guitarists in Austin. He's been grinding and pushing for the las 12-14 years, to get where he is now. If you don’t know his work, then do yourself a favor and google Eric Tessmer right now. You’ll thank me later! I captured this image of Eric using a large format (4x5) film camera with large format color film. The quality of large format film cannot be beat! I am drawn to the medium for its careful calculations and slow capture of an image. I find it to be a perfect medium for capturing portraits because it yields an incredible life-like image.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

As a woodworker and furniture maker by trade I am no stranger to the slow play mentality. I believe anything worth doing right also comes with a little extra effort and time to achieve the end result. I apply the same principles in my photography through the use of film cameras to make sure I slow down and think about the image I am capturing, instead of just clicking the shutter.

"Blissful Beach Days"

Acrylic | 18" x 24" | $450

I think my best childhood memories were celebrated at the beach. I loved making sand castles and chasing seagulls as they flocked to the sand. I loved exploring the tide pools and was always fascinated by the colors and shapes - from a sea anemone and sea urchin to the different starfish. I was just a boy at the beach full of bliss.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

I tend to find myself making a mess with inspiration in my art studio as I do in the kitchen or at a restaurant. I enjoy creating a meal or going out and observing the colors on a dish, as I sometimes will use them for my color pallets when I create a painting.

"Layers"

Handspun Yarn, Recycled Silk Sari, Copper | $285

Each of us has layers of life experiences. Some are beautiful, bold + rich. Some are random, messy + wild. All of these layers when seen collectively creates our uniquely gorgeous whole. This piece is a celebration of our human layers and individual beauty.

"Carnival"

Hand-dyed Yarn + Copper | $95

When I think of carnivals, I think of a celebration of all that is wild and weird. When I look at this piece, I see exuberance + joy. I see the freedom in being different and unconventional. #weaveweird

"Nature"

Handspun Yarn, Copper + Dried Flowers | $110

Taking a moment to reconnect with nature is a part of my daily medication practice. This piece is intended to help one reconnect with nature even when they can’t get outside.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

I was born / raised in brooklyn and spent my adult life riding my bike around the east village (no one owns a car in nyc). The move to Austin is my 1st time living somewhere outside of the city. I am directionally challenged to the point of it almost being a disability, no joke, and can’t get anywhere without using Google Maps.

I believe in walking through doors that open easily and not forcing the closed ones. I’m almost always wearing black and grey but my favorite color is ochre. My home decor style is cluttered bohemian. I’m obsessed with chocolate covered almonds, Ms. pac-man, bocce ball, succulents and office supplies of all kinds. You can usually find me at home, sipping tea and weaving with my rescued pugs. If you do manage to get me out of the house, I will chat your head off and dance until wherever we are kicks us out. My personal struggle is that I am a wildly outgoing introvert. Oh, and I can’t sleep without my white noise machine.

"Falls Into Place"

Gouache | 20.5" x 20.5" | $400

When everything falls into place, it’s magical. This bold and vibrant piece was created using no rulers and very little sketching. I painted whatever shapes popped into my head and placed them around the circle until… everything Fell Into Place!

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

I currently reside in Austin, by way of Fort Wayne, Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta and Venice Beach. Each city provided new and exciting creative awakenings and motivation. When asked to pick a favorite color, I cannot choose just one.

"She chose to grow flowers where pain once grew"

Acrylic on birchwood | 16" x 16" | $450

Holding onto lovers, traumas, and cyclical patterns deep within her heart, a terrible poison once ran thick through her veins. She decided to view her past, regardless of how painful it once had felt, as seeds of beauty that would flourish into something beautiful. An unconditional, self-love was born from her intentions and this inspired the drum of her heart to dance with gratitude.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

Emily most feels herself and closest to the Universe when she is outside in the sunshine and enjoying nature. She gathers her most inspiring ideas from the vibrant colors, beautiful scents, and fun textures of the local flora and fauna. Intrigued by how unique and divinely made each plant and animal that crosses her path is, she loves to incorporate them alongside her empathic nature and mystical mindset to enhance her artistic messages.

"Night Walk (Eiffel Tower)"

Mix Media (Ink, Acrylic, Graphite) | $300 - SOLD

Night walk was inspired by my honeymoon in Europe. My wife and I were sitting in front of the Eiffel Tower and I felt like I never wanted that feeling to end. I began sketching the open air and even picked a few flowers (I still have them in our photo album) for inspiration when we got back. The color palette I chose to for this piece is a tribute to the experiences we shared on our journey. I hope you can appreciate and feel our experience.

"Aftermath"

Pen, Ink, Graphite | $300

This piece was inspired by a conversation with a friend of mine. We were discussing the possibilities death, parallel universes and reincarnation. The result is a work that (I feel) conveys the dark side that most people refuse to address and that is when our time is up... it is up. I would like to believe that we all will find peace and happiness after we leave this world but the reality is that not everyone will.

"Trex"

Pen & Ink | $275

T-Rex was an inspiration from my children and their love of toys. We were walking in a retail store one day and my youngest son picked up a T-Rex and began making noises and roaring sounds. He asked me how big dinosaurs were and what they were like. I explained that they were these extremely large animals that were made up of the same organs and bones as we were. This piece is the finished product of that experience. P.S. He approved but still wishes he could have seen it in "Real life".

Esteban is currently working on his Bachelors in Fine Arts with a concentration in Renaissance Art at Texas State University.

The art Esteban makes is a mixture of various influences that explore many different themes. He mostly works with charcoal and graphite which allows him to focus on realistic features of various images. Some of the best works of art here in Austin have helped him to expand and transform my style into a broader realm that has welcomed him into their space. That’s the beauty of art and those who create it… there are no boundaries.

I wake up with ear plugs stuck to my face, because they fall out of my ears sometime between having a bizarre dream and my husband farting in his sleep. When I’m not zoned out in my studio tripping over my brush water, you’ll usually find me struggling to cook without butter or gluten (not), gardening anything that survived the Texas heat (or that one ice storm), or forcing my kid to memorize her multiplication table (something I don’t remember myself). To wash my realities of life away I celebrate with good wine, watch stunning sunsets, and laugh until I cry about embarrassing moments with friends and family. I attempt to reason with spiritual gurus, hippies (and occasionally my mother) while puking in front of shamans. My favorite thing to do is book an Airbnb, try to fit my closet into a 18x24” box on broken wheels, and travel around the world only to discover I love sleeping in my own bed.

This photo was taken during a trip to my family’s hometown of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico. In El Centro (the town center), you are welcomed with the sweet scent of freshly roasted elote and beautiful architecture. The atmosphere is vibrant, full of tourists, vendors, live music and sometimes dance.

Straying from El Centro, down a quiet side street, I came across two viejitas taking a break from the hustle of the crowds. They were taking a moment to enjoy the simple pleasure of an ice cold bottled Coca-Cola. I took a moment to capture the beauty in the typically unobserved. For me, this photo celebrates Mexico Desconocido, or Mexico unknown.

"Sunrise at Enchanted Rock"

Digital Image on Luster Print | 11" x 14" | $150

This was a combination of dumb luck and location that all came together at the right moment. After a fitful night trying to sleep on stones around Enchanted Rock on an astrophotography trip with my friend Dane Gudde, we begrudgingly decided to get up and try to capture some golden hour shots before heading back to the car. This image was captured about an hour after we had walked around the area, and I had reframed and reset about 5 times in different locations. I shot this in a moment of clarity when I looked up from the viewfinder and thought, “Oh, right. There it is…”

Born in the Southeast Asia with lots of weird ideas. I started painting landscape on my nails in 2014 then slowly started painting on a bigger surface (agate slices) but still on miniature scale. I am a child at heart, and listening to my daughters stories gives me ideas to paint surreal scenes and things. My day is not complete without coffee. A cup makes me get up in the morning and sleep at night. Having a grumpy 14 year old boy who blames all mischief to puberty and a 5 year old who thinks she is a teenager (15 years old to be exact), life is always exciting. With a husband that supports me and loves me unconditionally… LIFE IS TRULY WORTH CELEBRATING!

"Wedding Snakes"

Oil on wood panel 20" x 16" | $625

I have been painting animals with balloons for the last several years; putting them in human like situations. Mostly the animals are large mammals which cannot fly. I like the thought of anything is possible and it translates that possibility in the idea that these large (weighing tons) can be carried by tiny balloons.

GET TO KNOW THE AUSTIN ARTIST:

I like to push myself. When I first started painting I would only use white, black, burnt umber, and naples yellow with a big clunky filbert brush. I wanted to see how far I could push this limited palette and tool to get realistic details. When I felt I could learn no more from this style. I added a few more colors and brushes. I still rely on that method; the filbert brush is my go to. It can be as sharp as a blade, blunt as a hammer when banging out big areas of color.

"For My Amusement"

Mixed media on Canvas | 24” x 20” x1.5” | $280.00

As a child. I always had an artistic, creative side. Throughout the years, my creativity has waxed and waned but when I am drawing, painting, creating... it’s cathartic and I feel more alive.

This painting probably is inspired by childhood. Jewel tones have always made me feel invigorated and energized. I’ve used these colors in playful manner. I would like to think that is evident in the brush stokes. I also have a fondness for texture. My attraction to a piece of art usually makes me want to touch it. The tactile feeling of some textural, I feel, takes beyond just the visual. That is the reason most of my paintings usual incorporate a textural element as this one does.
