Meredith Hayes’ artistic life began early. Growing up in Traverse City, Michigan an elementary school art teacher reported her to have a ‘very vivid imagination.’ Meredith’s interest in art continued throughout high school in St. Paul, Minnesota. She dabbled in jewelry making, fabric dyeing, pottery, sculpture, photography, drawing and most of all painting. Hayes entered her work in many regional exhibits. Finally, greatly encouraged by her teachers, she decided to attend art school following graduation.
At Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon Meredith had a rather wide focus. She studied painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, lithography, intaglio, silkscreen, and block cut along with the usual academics. All of these subjects were ultimately reconciled with a thesis in mixed media.
While at PNCA Hayes also had the opportunity to participate in a four month internship with the claymation pioneer, Will Vinton Studios. There she learned the skill of model making. Meredith worked on various projects (including The PJ’s and Gary and Mike) model making, puppet dressing, and assistant costuming both during and after college.
Hayes currently lives, works and makes art in Los Angeles, California with her husband.
Silver Emulsion or Pixels, Liz’s Imagination is focused and clear.
LIZ HUSTON may live in Venice, California, a place known for interesting characters, but it’s in Huston’s imagination where the truly unique characters exist. Entirely self taught, Huston’s work has evolved over two decades from a traditional film background into digital assemblage, photomontage, and currently into mixed media through combining acrylics, oil and watercolors with her digital works. In her complex imagery, Huston creates an esoteric narrative that hints at a logic far beyond the average and mundane.
Huston was a featured photographer in Juxtapoz Magazine, and was named one of “Photographers You Should Know” by Rangefinder Magazine.
Seoul, South Korea Fine Art Blogging Branding.
“Was once recognized as the best genius in the world. Laurel Schmolze’s fine art and sculpture, crisscrosses Pop Culture iconography, using processes typical of the American Craft Movement. She explores ideas of gaming, travel, feminism, memes, motherhood, and discovery.”
Kate is a self-taught artist who lives and creates in Pasadena, CA. In 2004, found herself in need of an artistic outlet. She began creating two-dimensional thematic montages using imagery from various magazines and clip art sources. With further exploration and a new-found confidence, she began to pursue a different direction, creating, original, three dimensional collages. Later exploring the creative world of mixed media and assemblage and fell in love with both of these media. In 2014 she started exploring the unlimited potential of abstract painting. Creating work purely from my own mind, without borrowing images or objects to bring the work to life, has been an exhilarating experience.
Now finding great joy, working in abstract painting and assemblage. Through her research she found inspiration in the work of artists such as Salvador Dali, Joseph Cornell and Kurt Schwitters: and more recently, the paintings of Wassily Kandinsky and Joan Miro. Watching the documentary “The Radiant Child” about the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat had a deep impact on her and strive to create work, not in his style, but that that has the freedom and spontaneity of his.
In 2012 she had the great pleasure of seeing the exhibit “Wonderland – The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States”. This exhibit profoundly affected her. Finding kindred spirits in Louise Nevelson, Frida Kahlo and Remedios Varo and the work they have created.
