Stacie's adoration and curiosity of the arts was sparked at a very young age growing up in Albuquerque, NM where she was enveloped by the arts and traditions of various Native American cultures. She lived near petroglyphs out in the desert and spent much of her childhood exploring nature and sketching things she encountered. She has a degree in Art Education from The University of Texas at Austin and is also a certified personal trainer and yoga instructor. Many of her personal artworks are influenced by various social issues, with particular interest in the environment and gender roles. She has taught art to all ages and has been actively teaching yoga in Austin for 11 years. When Stacie isn't making art, you can find her on her yoga mat, or outdoors reading comic books.
Brittany grew up in Austin, TX and graduated with a BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas. She also studied painting at the Marchutz School of Fine Arts in the south of France. While studying abroad, she had the opportunity to paint in Monet's Garden and along the canals of Venice, Italy. Her love of nature stems from early childhood when she began collecting animal bones and insect shells from the woods near her home. She has a unique style mixing the beautiful with the macabre which is demonstrated in her woodcuts. She also focuses in other forms of printmaking, illustration, and photography. Brittany is currently employed in the photography field, teaches art classes, and does freelance work.
Jeff grew up in Bowie, Maryland and moved to Austin, Texas to attend St. Edward’s University in 2011. In the spring of May 2015, he earned his BFA in Studio Art. Since he was young, Jeff has grown to work with pastels, graphite and charcoal, but his main medium is the use of oil paint. While Jeff believes that art is an expression of all emotions with endless meanings, he likes to focus most of his work on cultural empowerment, equality and self-confidence. In his time here in Austin, he has completed three large-scale outdoor murals, participated in the youth-focused ‘Little Artist Big Artist’ program, and was also chosen to display his senior art series in the Austin–Bergstrom International Airport. When Jeff is not creating art, he enjoys eating pizza, watching football, and considers himself a movie connoisseur of sorts.

Kathryn grew up in a suburb outside of Houston, Texas that was a "melting pot" of cultures. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 with a BFA in Studio Art and has been an Austin resident ever since. Growing up as an identical twin, Kathryn has gone through internal and external obstacles with finding who she really was. Drawing became a way to separate herself noticing that there is a difference. From there, she would draw animals off all sorts especially cats, dogs, horses, and dragons, hah! She is now more interested in painting abstract artwork with a variety of color. She is also a Teaching Artist at Creative Action teaching kids how being creative can transform the way you problem solve, think, imagine, and learn. On her free time, Kathryn loves to practice yoga, run marathons, cook, read, and attend concerts with her twin.
