Oscar Ricardo Silva

Oscar Ricardo SilvaMy name is Oscar Ricardo Silva and I'm a photographer based out of Austin, Texas. I was born in San Gil, Colombia but have spent most of my life in the United States. I'm primarily a photojournalist but have extensive experience in portraiture and art/landscape photography. Most of my work involves groups on the fringe, or perceived to be on the fringe. Having been born outside of the US and with Spanish as my first language, I was on that fringe. (http://www.atxnomad.com)

Pauline Walsh Jacobson

Pauline Walsh JacobsonI specialize in painting marine life in watercolor using my own photographs and memories. I scuba dive and take underwater photos, which I use as subject matter for my paintings. Being a nature lover in general, I also paint flowers, gardens, animals and a few landscapes as well. I have been painting primarily in watercolor for over 30 years, but I also occasionally work in oils and acrylics.

To see below the ocean's surface and witness the beauty of life on a coral reef is something not everyone is able to experience, and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity. The world's coral reefs are in trouble and they might be gone someday if we don't take care of our oceans. Through my paintings and photographs, I want to show the beauty of coral reefs and their inhabitants to the world in hope that they will be protected and preserved for future generations.

Jamie Rood

My artwork originates from an idea or something interesting I find in our environment. I am influenced by hiking in the wilderness, urban decay, ambient music, yoga & meditation and a spirit of exploration. (http://jamierood.com)

Jessica Frey

Jessica FreyI believe in Fairy Tales......maybe because I worked at Disney World in college, or met my husband at a ball wearing a gown covered in glitter, or I just believe that happiness can happen and love is out there! (http://www.jessicafreyphotography.com)

Kyle Gross

Kyle GrossMy name is Kyle Gross and I am a jewelry designer and metalsmith living and creating in Austin, Texas. I have been working with silver, gold and other metals since my first metal class in 2002, and as of January 2011, I am a full time jewelry designer working out of my backyard studio. I have made a name for myself as a local wedding ring designer, and for creating unique jewelry designs that stray as far from the ordinary as possible. As well as designing rings for my clients out of my studio, I also set up every Saturday at local markets and at annual and semi-annual art shows in Austin. (http://stonesthrowstudio.com/)
