Meet Marsha

Marsha Wilson is a self taught artist, who burns fine art onto wood, paper, and leather with the Walnut Hallow Versatool.  She started burning seven years ago with this simple hand held wood burning tool, she fell in love with the ability to bring images to life with such a traditional tool.  She enjoys the freedom of burning, it allows her to concentrate on the piece, rather than mixing of paint and trying not the let the brush dry out. The burner responds to her hand like an extension of it, especially now on leather. The leather’s smooth surface and quick response to the heat makes it a new favorite medium.

more about katie

Kathryn Ruth was born and raised in the great state of Texas, and has been painting non-stop since the day she first picked up a paintbrush. In 2010 she moved to Waco to attend Baylor University, where she received her BFA in Studio Art in 2014. Since graduation she and her husband have continued to reside in Waco, where she spends most days painting and cuddling with her puppy. Kathryn uses acrylic paint to bring to life birds, cacti, people, pets, and other things that inspire her. Her work shines a light on the little glimpses of beauty that get overlooked in a world which so often seems to be filled with darkness and turmoil.

more about Alex

My work deals largely with human experiences and how those can affect, change or even transform us. Experiences can leave their mark on our brains, altering our behavior and emotions and even our health. Many of these changes go unnoticed or are unseen. They may be so subtle the individual doesn’t even notice. For myself as an artist I want my work to be a window into the unseen; a chance to glimpse the untold world within ourselves. Much of the imagery I use is inspired from bizarre dreams, memories I can’t quite remember, scary stories and peculiar moments from my own day to day life. The space in which my subjects exist is a liminal space. It is temporary and just for the momentary viewing. It’s not reality or realism but does reflect a spectrum of ourselves that are very real. Feeling like we’re becoming a monster or evolving into something else, or as though parts of ourselves are disappearing, or maybe even feeling as though who you are is splitting in two. The identity of my subjects is not important either. They could be anyone, maybe even the viewer, and that is their purpose.
