In many ways, I feel as if my artistic journey is just beginning as I further refine my hyper-realistic, digital art style while also exploring experimental fine art and photography at the same time.

Featured Artist Mystele

I work intuitively and abstract my subjects from the chaotic mixed media grounds I create. I’m inspired by my childhood, my ethnicity, my affinity for old things and the landscape of Northwest Texas where I grew up.

Featured Artist Paul Hopman

My inspiration comes from witnessing animals in moments in time. The light reflecting in the fixed gaze of a horse, the pose of a lioness as she lays besides her cubs, the heated breath of a bison on a brisk morning. These moments are filled with energy and emotion, making them beautiful and unique.

I get my inspiration from my own life experiences, but from my students as well. Getting to know them and listening to their stories of their history of immigration situations gives me so many ideas.

Featured Artist Hank Keneally

Creating art is my “joy juice.” I create every day. This gives me learning delights—about myself, the world and “the face behind the face” in viewing life with more depth.
