My creations symbolize a range of emotions conveyed through the use of textures, strokes, colors, and mediums. I enjoy working with various mediums to form artwork that is affective, particularly the ‘bright side of the dark side’ or the ‘dark side of the bright side.’ My inspiration comes from life’s adventures, experiences, and encounters. Throughout my youth, I spent my spare time drawing and painting, and now I enjoy participating in the arts by sharing my own creations as well as supporting fellow artists in the celebration of individuality.

Brown’s work focuses on the kinetics of the figure as slow motion events captured in time with blurs of the micro-second. His work explores the lines within the movement of multiple light defining “gray areas” that are, in fact, full of color.

I like to tackle political and cultural themes in my work. I seek to create art that involves diverse views and serves as a vehical for contemplation of life’s complexities.
Visual Arts: Photography
“I have always viewed my work as a kind of personal photojournalism, and it is through the medium of photography that I feel a greater connection to the world around me. I especially like irony in pictures and am always open to the incidental and unanticipated, often a peripheral element that introduces a new dimension into the pictures. – Robert Brown

Through capturing photographic imagery from personal sacred space, dreams and the natural world, I create my own language of metaphors and special symbolism. This is visual journaling of what’s important to me and my inner thoughts and ideas are made visible through my technique and my choice of subject matter. I believe we are formed by images and we need to develop a critical intake and understanding of what we are seeing.
There are reoccurring images throughout my work from spiritual pilgrimages, family, the natural
world and dreams that are important to me. I return often to placing a special black stone in my
work that represents me. This is an important touchstone of meditation and memory which
allows me to be placed in the spiritual spaces that I capture and compose. Light and shadow are
also a reoccurring symbolism representing spiritual and self-awareness. By encountering the
push and pull of both my light and my shadow, I expose myself to a source of life otherwise not
seen. For me, this is where divinity is found.

The way we record and disseminate information in the twenty-first century, from Facebook to e-book, is grossly affected by the existence of the Internet. Similarly, the information that we decide to record – the historical remnants of the early decades of this century, both political and cultural – have been invariably molded by how technology has touched our culture’s lives. My paintings and artist books exist as the next form of historical document in observing and recording digital pop culture.
Allison Brown is a painter and designer living and working in central Indiana. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana in 1986, Allison spent her formative years in the Indianapolis suburbs reading and drawing in the front covers of said books, save for requisite yearly summer holidays spent at the foothills of the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona. It wasn’t until her teenage years that she encountered her muse, the Internet, in the form of an AOL subscription. Prior to that moment, her exposure to computers were chiefly comprised ofEncarta 95, extremely floppy discs, and never getting a turn to play Oregon Trail at recess.
Allison received her BFA in Painting with Art History minor from the Herron School of Art and Design at IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana (2012) and her AA with Studio Arts emphasis from Cottey College in Nevada, Missouri (2007). Awards received include the Paul Zimmerman Memorial Endowment for Scholarship in Painting and acceptance into the Herron School of Art and Design Juried Undergraduate Exhibition for 2010, with her work being shown across the Midwest. Her skills in painting and design have been applied to projects used by Cottey College; The Villages Foster Care, Adoption, and Family Services; the Town of Avon, Indiana; the Mooresville Public Library, Mooresville, Indiana; and Music for All, Inc.

Broyer’s art career began in a formalized elementary education art program in Evansville, IN. In addition, throughout her early learning and primary education, Marie was offered participation in specialty art programs within the public-school systems and the local community. Nearing the end of high school, she chose to finish her curriculum at the inaugural charter “Signature School.”
Furthermore, with the availability of this new artistic program, she focused her studies on contemporary art and editorial content. Most of all, Broyer won numerous awards for editorial illustration and content. In addition, was granted the opportunity as a high school student to participate in the juried Oakland City College (now Oakland City University) Art Exhibit. Thus, she participated in her first exhibit and at the age of seventeen and awarded a college level honorable mention.
During this time, The University of Southern Indiana (USI) School of Liberal Arts Board of Directors selected (Stonestreet) Broyer as a recipient for a full liberal arts scholarship. While at USI, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Arts majoring in Advertising and Public Relations and focused on fine arts and marketing. Then, she studied under the artist in residence, Ms. Judy Chicago, in New Harmony, IN and traveled the country. Primarily, she studied the artists of the modern and impressionistic movement.
Most of all, Broyer found herself inspired by the Impressionist and Fauvist movements. “In essence the movement is a realist perspective through the eyes of the artist, not a photograph.” Furthermore, she seized those concepts and built her own style through creating layers of texture, line and color.
Now, she applies her formal training through working in commercial art, digital marketing communications and as an educator teaching adult and youth art classes in her country-side studio. In addition, she continues to learn and expand her knowledge base to further enhance the artist community.
In conclusion, Marie currently resides in Central Indiana working in the fine art and the marketing communications industry. For over two decades, she continues to grow as a professional fine artist and individual. Broyer’s representation spans regional museums, private shows, public exhibitions and juried fairs. Contributing the donation of time and art to public service initiatives, she adds her flair of unique business initiatives and an artistic perspective to the local community.

With a background in bronze casting and paleontology, I am inspired by the application of a process and the passage of time as a means to transform. In my practice I examine the human experience within the realm of deep time, exploring the grander temporal potential of daily rituals through fossilization. I create fictional artifacts that exist at the intersections of craft, ecology, science fiction, queerness, time scale and human sustainability when facing imminent change.

What is Quixotic Artistry? It is first and foremost, my brand. It’s whimsy, it’s being able to look failure directly in the eye, and say “f*&# off”, and turn it into success. It’s my past heartbreak, and my feelings of insecurity. Ironically, it is my suit of armour, and my confidence. It is Assemblage, fashion design, makeup artistry, and graphics. It is choreography, it is design. It’s perfect balance. It is the rebirth of my failed attempts at becoming a fashion designer, yet is the new life of a new approach. It is the phoenix, that is rising from the ashes of what I thought to be the end of a journey. Alas, my journey is not over. What is Quixotic | Artistry ? It is whatever that I want it to be, and will be everything that I quixotically dream it to be.

I studied art in high school (thank you Mrs. McQuitty), and at John Herron, then Indiana University, and then Purdue University.
I do paintings and sculpture and mobiles, specializing in compositions that are one work by day and another by night, because I incorporate naturally glowing minerals that absorb light by day and then shed it when the lights go out.
My husband (Kurt Kriese- a gifted painter and stained glass artist) and I have had a studio in the CCIC since 2016- “Daily Epiphany Studio” (South Studio B17) and we open for First Fridays or by appointment.

Artist StatementMy aim as an artist is to explore.At times, I allow chance (automatism) to play a major roll in my creation.I am inspired by dreams and fleeting ideas,strange characters and ambiguous emotions.Transformation and the idea of transience are common themes in my work.I grasp onto those things which have no concrete title,and images that fall through the cracks of direct understanding.At times there will be beauty and abstraction, humor, and darkness.Faces accompany emotions, figures follow shapes,and organic forms inspire metaphor.I often give life to shapes or organic formsby inserting a human element.When I am in the studio, I seek new ideas.I work in mixed media. I search for and collect objectsand materials to use in my work.I play with textures and colors.I also use digital tools to create remixes of the art I create physically.I always carry a sketchbook that I work in daily.My driving force is to carve my own winding path.I can only hope that others may follow along and discover with wonderment,the unexpected things I uncover.

I have always loved the beauty of flowers, and I find great joy in not only giving fresh arrangements to others, but also sharing my floral paintings. I am a watercolor artist, and I enjoy using the paints in unexpected ways to create vibrant, vivid colors on a canvas.

She now runs a successful in-home art studio and is seizure free! Painting has been a true blessing and Melissa feels that it actually saved her life!
When she’s not teaching a class Melissa really enjoys making Abstract art. She works with many different mediums and likes to use found or repurposed objects in her pieces. These objects are used for adding texture or sometimes as the canvas. Sometimes, the story behind the objects or the piece itself makes the art even more enjoyable. When you view her work, be sure to ask…”what did you use here?”

I create all of my work from an overwhelming desire to communicate that which transcends explanation. I wish to bring the raw forces of creation & beauty to the surface as a means to translate experiences & visions into sharable mediums. It is my belief that art has the ability to transform by resonating the fundamental energies deep within our beings. I believe art has the ability to unlock the potentials of our highest selves.
