Chris Young - Wearable Art 

Chris hand paints silk scarves and silk throw pillows. These are all individually painted by hand making each item unique. She uses several techniques, mostly painting the dyes on by hand like a watercolor painting, but also may drop dye or marble the item by floating the dyes. The dyes are then heat/steam set and are permanent.

The scarves may be silk satin, silk chiffon, silk crepe de chine, etc. The items are all washable in cold water. Also, she makes leather cuff bracelets which are embellished by wiring and gluing on shoe clips, broaches, etc. They have a metal core (usually copper) which allows the bracelet to bend around the arm and are lined in leather.

Rachel Montemayor - Sheep and Hook Fiber

Rachel's definition of an artist is simply a person who, by virtue of imagination, is able to create exceptional beauty. If she is able to evoke the emotions of goodness, truth and beauty to her audience then she is an artist. Each yard of fiber that passes through her fingers and unfolds like a blossoming flower at the spinning wheel or the joy that she feels at its inherent beauty is a palpable emotion. If she is able to evoke that emotion, that passion that she felt in its making in her audience then she has succeeded as an artist.

Rachel Montemayor has been published in The Islander Magazine, the Houston Chronicle and the Galveston Monthly, and the Daily News.

You'll want to come by and say hello and watch her demonstration.

Heather Schiappa - Silkendipity

The vibrant colors featured in each of Heather's hand painted scarves are created using the finest steam set dyes from France. Steam set dyes create the most intense colors possible. During the steaming process, which lasts from 3-4 hours, the dye becomes chemically bonded to the silk fibers creating lasting color without sacrificing the scarf's natural silky feel.

They are a great way to add a splash of color and fun to your wardrobe at an affordable price!

Anne Gaines - Linoleum reduction cuts

Anne has specialized in linoleum reduction cuts for 18 years. Her subject matter ranges from an individual flower to vignettes of animal life, often featuring cats, her favorite models. All of her designs are original.

Although block prints, and specifically reduction cuts, do not lend themselves to fine detail, she thrives on achieving very complicated designs with as many as a dozen over-printings to reach the final product. She develops her ideas from thumbnail sketches that are then drawn to full size. Once she has completed the composition, she transfers it to the linoleum, and begins carving for the first printing. She uses water soluble printers ink on hot press water color paper. The multiple printings result in a final print that is heavy with ink, with a distinct texture.

Anne has received numerous awards throughout the years, and we can definitely see why!

Gary Frisk - Paintings and photography

Gary (Stephen) always knew he could draw.  He started learning about art at an early age when visiting his grandmother: he would look in her art books and sit at her easel.  She oil painted like a master and he loved her work.  As one of life’s ironies, Gary never took any lessons from her.  He pursued a degree in engineering; however somewhere in his God given DNA, there was something that pressed him towards practicing art. 

Years after, several art prizes on his shelf, he is still putting in the mileage and finding his style.  He continues to grow and learn.

Gary will do some live painting for us at the Spring Arts Market!

Ellie Teramoto - Photography

Atsuko Ellie Teramoto was born on the island of Hokkaido, Japan. She left her native Japan shortly after graduating high school to pursue her dreams in the United States. After studying journalism in college she went on to work for newspapers for twelve years, first in Los Angeles and soon after in New York City. From reporting Ellie eventually transitioned to news photography. Very shortly after taking this step she discovered her passion for fine art photography.

After many years in New York, Ellie decided to take the leap to independence, relocating to Houston to practice her photography on her own terms. In her work she seeks to find art in nature, while carefully attempting to match her prints with what the human eye experiences as closely as possible. Much of her time is spent uncovering the hidden beauty of Texas.

Tim Herschbach - Photography

It wasn't until December of 2009 that Tim began to take photography more seriously when he decided that he would like to create some artwork to hang on the walls in his home. Tim began scouring the internet and reading every book he could get his hands on and watching countless hours of videos on image processing. He submitted select photos for critique by professional photographers and attended workshops. With every photograph Tim created, he grew closer to being able to use photography as not just a way to capture a beautiful scene or subject, but as a viable method of communicating emotion, a fundamental principle of fine art.

In the summer of 2013, Tim Herschbach left his full time position at a Houston television station and put his full devotion into his art career and is currently selling his work online and at regional art shows.

Theresa Borman - Glass work and geodes

Theresa Borman is a Friendswood resident who is in love with color, and was immediately drawn to glass because of the intensity of the color when light shines through it.  After a number of years doing stained glass mosaics, she has recently started working with kiln-formed glass, making 3D flower wall sculptures.  They can be hung inside or outside, but are at their best in sunlight where they absolutely glow.

The entire Borman family--mom, dad, and three boys--have been going on rock hunts in the Midwest to collect geodes for about 10 years, which they dig up and open themselves.  This has caused them to have a really crowded garage and so they are glad of the chance to share them with the guests of Art Dwellers Spring Arts Market.  There have been 17 different minerals found in these types of geodes, but the most popular contain sparkly quartz crystals.  Their largest geode so far weighs 311 lbs., and their tiniest is smaller than a pea.

James Phillips - Wood sculptor

James harvests wood from fresh cut trees bound for disposal. He has no particular wood preference - he concludes that all wood is beautiful. The infinite variation in color and grain insures that each one of his pieces is an original and impossible to precisely duplicate.

James finds his designs by sculpting small clay models with the desired subject and contorting them into a form that pleases his eye. The rough shape is cut with a gas chainsaw and the form is refined with grinders and chisels, followed by a fine sanding and the application of a sealer and multiple final finish coats. Each piece takes about twenty to thirty hours to complete, spread over several weeks.
