Inspired by my childlike interests as well as experiences which happen in my life, I paint my imagination on the world around me.
When working with clients, I prefer to create their world in high quality — I don’t suggest anyone go with my brand when working on their own project, we will instead develop their brand and identity to better differentiate themselves in the vast marketplace of today.

I’ve always enjoyed drawing, painting, & making things. I am particularly fond of outdoor/public art projects. Always looking forward to my next project, big or small, and finding clever design solutions.

Growing up in a family of artists, I began painting at an early age. I am passionate about children’s literature and believe illustrations are a wonderful way to expose a child to fine art. In addition to maintaining an independent art studio in Butler Tarkington, I work as a commercial interior designer and have extensive experience with public space design.

Creating art is directly related to the way I process life events and my spiritual journey. I work in various 2D mediums as well as making artist books. I love printmaking, painting, drawing and mixed media creating. If I am trying to answer a philosophical or emotional question for myself, I know that if I go to my studio and get busy, I will find the answer I am looking for.

Nobody Can Tell Me What To Do, Not Even Me!
There are neither good nor bad subjects.
From the point of view of pure Art,
you could almost establish it as an axiom that the subject is irrelevant,
style itself being an absolute manner of seeing things.
Of all lies, art is the least untrue.
Anything becomes interesting if you look at it long enough.
My name is Gersh and I’m a self-taught well-published Professional Photographer, Artist, Sci-fi & How-To Professional Photography & How-To Art Writer & Designer.
I started drawing and painting when I was 3 and the first time I had my photography work published was when I was a very young child.
I have never gone to school to study art, writing, design and/or photography, nor have I had anyone teaching me any of the said disciplines.
My art work comprises of a very large collection of black and white and color images which have been created by me in various styles, some of which are surrealism, realism, impressionism and other well-known artistic expressions, in addition to those which have been pioneered by me.
What sets me apart from all other artists, is not only a distinct style of my work, but also the fact that I work in almost each and every medium and genre and pioneer my own genres.
A large portion of my work are storyboards and illustration for books written by me, nevertheless there are also images which are not a part of any project.
They say that every image is worth a thousand words and that every image is a story. My art speaks for itself and I’m not here to describe it, because if my images couldn’t speak for themselves and could not tell stories, they wouldn’t be worth of even looking at them, needless speaking of being published and admired by people.
My art is not only a product of my knowledge, imagination, but is also a result of experiences achieved through the exploration of various mediums. From pen and Indian ink, charcoal, markers, oil, graphite, acrylics to less known materials, some of which have been created by me. Despite what has been said, I do not stick with any particular style, but on contrary remain a free explorer of various mediums and styles, which leaves me free not to be told what to do, not even by me, but to remain free in my exploration of the ways and choices to achieve an absolute paramount in my artistic-expression!

Drew Avery is an up and coming artist, currently working on an informatics degree while residing in the Saint Joseph neighborhood in downtown Indianapolis. Utilizing a decisively self-taught method of illustration, drawing upon architectural paradigms unique to the city and Mile Square heritage, Avery creates a very individual medium focused on the abstractions and splendor of our architectural heritage as citizens of Indianapolis and the World.
The aforementioned style exhibits highly patterned, meticulous ink work, epitomized in the Cityshapes series. These decisively analog methods of illustration are intentional given the highly digital context of our world. The goal being to simply steward and foster conversation about architectural heritage, the artist’s role in the community and increase public access to the greater conversation regarding land-use policy and urban planning.

Marissa Ballesteros is an artist currently living in Indianapolis, Indiana. She attended Herron School of Art and Design and will graduate in December 2018 with a BFA in Drawing and Illustration. In May 2018, she had her first group exhibition at the Garfield Park Arts Center. The theme of the exhibition was adventures, and she created concept art based on an original story. The pieces comprised of three characters and three environments from that story.
Moving forward, she is interested in creating concept art. She wants to explore how she can create original characters and environments that are engaging, dynamic, and unique. Her influences vary: fantasy books such as Harry Potter and A Game of Thrones, Greek and Egyptian mythology, historical figures, and illustrators such as Arthur Rackham, Lois van Baarle, and Wylie Beckert. Additionally, she wants to create original works that comment on issues pertaining to contemporary society through a fantastical point of view. She works in traditional and digital media. Her current goals include working on concept art for companies involved in film, video games, and animation and having original pieces shown in galleries.

I paint large interior and exterior murals. My subject matter is figurative, landscape, architecture, representational, portrait and many other subjects. I use oil, acrylic or house paint. I use boom lifts and scaffolding to reach heights. I also paint smaller canvas paintings. I have painted many historical, diverse, ethnic murals.

Not my words, but I live by them. “Art is not an end in itself, but a means of addressing humanity.”

Intuition is a guiding hand in my decision making process, from color schemes to composition and subject matter. I draw how I feel, and hidden meaning often lurks behind surfaces of oil paint, charcoal, graphite, and other various media. My hands are often my main instrument, bridging the intimate connection between maker and creation.
Each work fluctuates in style, just as my day to day mood and demeanor do. My art is a refusal to remain stagnant; each piece a subconscious megaphone for my feelings, coupling dull colors with vibrant, intense hues. There is intention in each movement– even chaos can be calculated.
Visual Arts: Illustration, Painting, Visual Arts Instructor; Comic Books
Using the power of stories as my inspiration I seek to tell them visually with expressive and stylized art. With book illustrations, comics, and story boards I bring my stories, and my clients ideas, to life. Through intricate detail, lighting, atmosphere, and the sublties of emotion I capture stories to share.

As an artist I’ve pretty much been in the closet until now. My work has always been visual and I have used a wide spectrum of mediums including oil and acrylic painting, watercolors, and pretty much anything that will soak into a brush. in addition, I’ve used everything from hemp ash, and charcoal to grasses and berries to draw with. I can’t forget the trusty number 2 pencil. I have also used different computer software to create wall hangings as well as animations and short films. To close this tiny bio I want to say that I have lived in Indianapolis my entire life and I’m excited to become a part of this artist community.

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.

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.
