BRIAN PHILLIPS


Back when I met with Grace Borengasser  for a studio visit, she told me to check out her friend Brian's work. "This is his. He is awesome," she told me, pointing at a piece on the wall. ( By the way, Grace, Brian says THANK YOU! )

I got home and remembered her saying something about a shipping container....my curiosity was peaked. I looked through my notes, found his name and "Googled" the guy. I'm glad I did! 

Check out the photos and interview from my studio visit after the jump:

JESSICA MATHEWS


It was a pleasantly cool and rainy afternoon when I went to see Jessica at her East Austin studio. We both sipped our tea and talked about...cell phones. What do I mean?! Continue on for photos and interview after the jump, and you'll find out...

GRACE BORENGASSER


It's been a while.

 I contacted Grace once the dust from our move had settled, and she kindly agreed to have me in her home studio. I'm thrilled to be back at it with this blog in a new city...as a new Austinite! Without further ado, photos and interview after the jump:

DYLAN RABE



I had plans to meet Dylan in his studio on a day I had packed way too many activities and errands into. It was rainy, I was hungry, and my brain was foggy.. but talking to Dylan got me feeling a little more relaxed and human again ( his way of speaking is pretty slow, steady, calm and spaced out, which I appreciate ). Interview and photos after the jump:

LISA CLINE




I met Lisa almost five years ago in a painting class. We decided, shortly after becoming friends, to take a trip across the ocean. We spent time in Germany and Spain, and ended up in France taking a three-week drawing class through school. We stayed in a very old stone house at the edge of a cliff and had many adventures. Over the course of those months I got to know Lisa and her work...and I'm so grateful that I did. She continues to be an inspiration to me, and of course a dear friend.

MEG T. NOE





During my interview with Meg, my recording device mysteriously quit working multiple times. Maybe the fact that her studio is a former funeral home has something to do with it? At any rate, I am missing bits of the audio to transcribe..including her telling us about where she grew up, (which was Texas), and where she started college ( which was in California..) so let's pick it up there:
