Artist Bio

Sheri Herbert has been in a creative field throughout her life, as an artist, professional photographer, visual merchandiser, faux finisher and now as a teacher at her art studio in Rosenberg, TX.

She believes THE PURPOSE OF ART is not to produce a product. The purpose of art is to produce thinking. The secret is not the mechanics or technical skill that create art – but the process of introspection and different levels of contemplation that generate it. Once you learn to embrace this process, your creative potential is limitless.

Artwork should be an active verb (a lens by which to view the world) not a passive noun (a painting that sits dormant in a room or on a wall). Creativity lies NOT in the done but in the doing. Art is active and incomplete. Always shifting, always becoming. Art is a sneak peak into the future of potential, of what could be. Not a past result of what has been already done. Art is a process not a product. It is the journey, not the destination.

Art is a human act. Art is Risky. Generous. Courageous. Provocative. Creative. You can be perfect, or you can make art. You can keep track of what you will get in return for your effort, or you can make art. You can enjoy the status quo, or you can make art.

Artist Bio

My name is Margarita Rojas. I was born in the Brenham area where wild flowers and longhorns are plentiful. I love the outdoors and I love taking pictures. So naturally I merged the two into a business.  I have no formal training in the art. I just photograph the beauty that I see before me.

Artist Bio

Jeff Stark was born in Houston and grew up out in Sugar Land. His dad is an artist who has been painting most of his life so his love for art and design started at a young age. His first dream was to become an architect, but that path guided him towards a degree in graphic design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Houston. Early on in his career, Jeff became the Art Director of Enron’s in-house agency before its collapse. From that experience, he co-founded Digital Function, a web design & development firm where he has been the Design Director for close to 15 years and is heavily involved in the Houston design & tech community. With a career in graphic design, it was an easy transition into photography which has become his creative outlet. His passion for photography started with capturing and documenting his travels back in 2009 on a trip to Italy. As an artist his photography provides the audience with a unique view into the environments, spaces, and the landscapes that surround him. Recently, he and his father have been collaborating on mix media projects and lives his Houston with his wife Trang.

Artist Bio

My art comes from my heart & I have been a professional artist for more than four decades.
I love capturing special memories and putting them on canvas and that has been the case ever since I realized that I can paint n’ draw! I come from a family of artists and in fact next month Sotheby’s will have a live auction in New York City of art done by a relative Adi Davierwala.
My art has adorned walls of collectors & corporation from across the globe and each piece is produced without even an inclination of how or what it will end up to be. That delivers an element of surprise that is exciting even to me as an artist. It ends up being the adrenaline that allows me to pump my desire and produce effective pieces of art!

I look for interesting urban or architectural themes to transfer as stories & memories on canvas with my own impressions and style. I am told that my style leans towards expressionist abstract art that tells a story through themes. Take a look at my online gallery.

Artist Bio

Diverse, technical and showing a geeky point of view – those are Don’s Photographs.

Don is a retired engineer who has been shooting photographs since he won a ‘brownie camera’ when he was 11 years old.  The advent of digital SLR cameras has freed him to explore and chase the excellent image.

Don has been an art groupie since he married Kathy Golden, an artist who paints in oils.  Don has received no formal training in photography, but is self-taught and a product of the school of trial and error.

Artist Statement

Nina had always been an artist –  After spending most of her childhood in England, she attended Mason Gross School of Fine Arts (Rutgers, NJ) for a BFA as well Glassell School of Fine Arts (Houston) in 1984-86 as a TA in the Printmaking Department. Nina moved to Canada in 1986 where she started her family and maintained a printmaking studio for many years as well as showing and selling in festivals and galleries throughout Canada. She also was very involved in textiles and sold her hand knit designs in several boutiques in Calgary and Edmonton.
In 1997, Nina moved back to Texas, and quit intaglio printmaking, because of the toxic solvents that were involved in plate making and clean up.  She grabbed a ball point pen and started drawing in the style of pointillism.  Nina has a prolific portfolio and has shown and sold her work in several large Texas festivals including the Bayou City Arts Festival, Artoberfest in Galveston, and Rockport Art Festival.
   Nina has published and illustrated 2 kids books “Oh Those Curious Cats” and “The Runaway Hen”  and is working on illustrating her 4th coloring book.  Nina loves history and has drawn many of the architectural landmarks in Fort Bend County, Texas.  She currently is “catching up for  retirement” by working at a juvenile facility at LCISD.
  Nina recently bought an etching (Intaglio Printmaking) press and plans to return to printmaking when she retires from her school.  The components of printmaking have become so much safer in the last 20 years so Nina will be interested in teaching and demonstrating “making and printing from solar plates”.  Currently, Nina has her work in several museums/gift stores in Fort Bend and maintains her studio in Richmond.  Her other hobby is raising chickens as well as being passionate about helping troubled children with art.
