Joanna Burch, a native Texan, grew up along the south Texas shoreline most of her life. As a result, her love for coastal activities found it’s way into much of her early artistic work. Observing those special moments of interaction with family and friends, through body language and colorful objects of fun and play, has inspired her to create wonderful, everyday, scenic images which embody many of her coastal paintings.
Mara Cardwell started painting in her twenties after encouraged by Dalhart Windberg and has not stopped since. On the serious side, she creates native landscapes with oils giving you the impression of photographic realism with great attention to detail. She expresses her fun side by creating impressionist artwork using vibrant colors with alcohol ink. Most recently Mara has been using pastels on mesquite and cedar planks to create animal portraits. Her styles with use of various mediums vary depending on spontaneous inspirations.

I’m a full time artist working in Oil, Pastel, Watercolor and Photography. I find that, in my work, painting and photography are converging as a similar artistic process is used to create the final image. I am a former President of WVAL and I am part owner of Art on 12 Gallery in Wimberley.

I am on a lifelong journey of self discovery and self healing. Left in the dark, my hurts and wounds from the past form into masks, armor, and fears I believe we are all in need of healing: a journey of forgiveness, acceptance, faith, and love. My art expresses the truth that as we experience the redemption and restoration of our brokenness, we can express that light into a hurting world.
I create using acrylic paints and mediums, as well as other media such as charcoal, pigment sticks, and collage. Multiple layers are applied with palette knives, and both visual and tactical texture give each piece added interest and depth. Although most of the layers will never be seen, each layer directs the next and influences the whole. Scraping into the paint and excavating parts of the previous layers brings the past into the present with beauty and kinship.
Like the revealing of under layers, my past must be brought out of the dark and into the light. I am on a circular path to wholeness, loving the imperfections, and finding beauty in the imperfect. My art manifests truths of the heart: the desire to be whole, to be courageous, to love ourselves and others, and to have a living hope that leads to unstoppable joy.
The Intersection of Art and Advocacy
I use my art to advocate for our environment because now more than ever, it's up to us--art can be a powerful force for change.
I am a Certified Texas Master Naturalist and macro nature photographer, creating portraits, but of bugs, not people. I never stage photographs, instead choosing to capture the environment in which I find each subject.
50 States of Pollinators is my current project. (https://www.shannon.photos/50-states-pollinators/)
Design and math led me to Art, Design and Architecture degrees. With acrylics, I develop forms and colors with a sense of motion, tension, and balance. My work has been described as celebratory and playful, non-derivative, modern, and associative. I believe that Art is a spiritual endeavor.
