Interwoven: The Lives and Roles of Women Art By Jean Rissover

Jean Rissover, Weaver, 14 x 11 inches, oil

"The characters I paint live in my head, and act out their lives there. I hope in trying to translate them into paint on canvas, to capture something about the human condition... especially, but not exclusively, the lives of women," says Rissover.

Louise Marler: Digital Americana

Marler's art has been largely influenced by her father who collected and repaired old typewriters. Her artistic style integrates modern digital photography with her passion for vintage items. The result is a composite of thought and form. She seeks to create art collections and events which integrate history, education, and entertainment.

Pastels Potentia Per Formam Perfecta (Powerful Pastels by Sketched Perfect)

Alfonzo Branch, owner of Sketched Perfect Designs, spent most of his adult years forging his way into the art world creatively, using pastels as a primary media. He has found that not many people use pastels for the type of work he is requested to do, because they are so difficult to master. He is a current member of the Texas Art Coalition. He has mastered the art of pastels and continues to use his creativity to enhance the artist community.
