Amanda Nicole Chase

My love of art began in my freshman year of high school. I signed up to take an art class, where I got to experiment with different mediums. But drawing with graphite was the only medium that stuck with me throughout the years. Several years after high school, I picked up a set of Prismacolor pencils to expand my drawing practice. In 2020 I began experimenting with pyrography, a Greek-derived word that translates to “writing with fire.” Pyrography, or wood-burning, is the art of burning images onto wood with a hot metal tool. Because of my drawing foundation, I picked up pyrography in a very short amount of time, and it is now my primary medium. Nature is the subject of most of my art and a significant influence in my life. I grew up in the country with the great outdoors as my playground. I studied nature with the curiosity and zest of an explorer. As an adult, I still have that curiosity and love for nature.

Ways of Reasoning Art

A she/her gremlin currently living in Victoria, Tx. I’m light on my feet and swift with my words; and losing, well, it’s not in my vocabulary. Now, on to my passion and experience with art. Ever since I was a little girl, art has always been a passion. Like a lot of things in life, I was prepared to leave it as a passion, up until about 2015, when digital art and graphic design sparked my interests. It all started in my mothers small boutique in small town Texas, when she asked me to work on vector images for some T-shirts to sell at an art show. Early morning turned to evening I learned whatever i could to manipulate and hand draw photos for different designs. I worked with line art and color schemes/palettes and grew a love for different graphics. Then through now, my passion grew to a level younger me would’ve never imagined. I began doing digital art during all of my free time. The end all be all hope is to make my own web comic series one day, and make my passion a career.

Leah Zuniga

Hello! My name is Leah Zuniga, this is my second art walk and they are so much fun! I’ve gotten better at experimenting with painting and drawing. I like to draw simple but fun things, I also like books and stuffed animals.

Tabbitha Buesing

Tabbitha Buesing, is and has always been unapologetically childish. Born and raised in south Texas, life always needed a little more imagination to her. Now a mom and wife striving to see the fun in every day. Inspired by outrageous cartoons and niche cultures, she blends the two to make the every day things pop and feel alive and just a little childish, in a good way!
Starting from journal doodles as a daydreaming kid, her work grew into multiple formats including digital work and physical goods. She has worked with many people such a local business owners to create eye catching logos and content creators from around the world to reflect their big personalities. All while maintaining a whimsical and silly style that recalls memories of Saturday mornings in front of the TV and late nights enjoying video games!

Gail Dentler


I have been doing art since I was a kid, trying several different mediums. Five years ago I fell in love with painting botanicals in watercolor. I especially love painting red flowers but any time spent painting botanicals is a good day.

I have a BBA in Marketing from Sam Houston State Univ. and an MAE from Texas Tech Univ.
When I’m not painting, I enjoy time spent with my family, gardening, yoga, golfing and walking.

George Schwarz

George Schwarz, photographer

George, a New Orleans native, spent 25 years in the health care industry. He became serious about photography during graduate school at the University of Iowa. In fact, in 1968 and 1969, he spent so much time photographing and developing pictures that he almost washed his master’s thesis down the darkroom drain.

During 25 years in health care, he was a hobbyist photographer. But in 1996, George became a reporter, often shooting for his stories. His interests include travel, aviation, railroads and nature — all of which are reflected in his photographs.

He retired in 2016 and in 2017 moved to Victoria where he lives with his wife, Beth, and his loyal canine companion, Scout.

Metallic Grandma/Cindy Tharp

Metallic Grandma? What’s that? A geriatric rock band? Nope! I jokingly call myself the Metallic Grandma because I’m a hyper realistic acrylic painter of things made of metal (cars, trucks, airplanes). I’m also a proud grandma of two brilliant grandsons. I love to add special touches to commission work and have sold while exhibiting at the Victoria Art League gallery. You may also see an occasional seascape or two. Don’t like paintings? I will have my published Christian devotional, Tattered Legacy, on hand to help you understand what your legacy is all about!

One of my favorite things is watching the connection people make with one of my paintings. I hear lots of stories! And of course, it’s wonderful to see a painting go to a new home where it brings a smile everyday. It also fills my heart when someone drops by that has read Tattered Legacy and tells me what it has meant to them.  So drop on by during the Artwalk. I’d love to meet you!

Growing up in a family of amateur naturalists, I focus my attention on the natural world. Many of my photographs reflect traditional views of nature. I also love to play with saturated color to create photos that grab your attention and alter your perceptions. And color is just so much fun. I enjoy being a member of this creative community and the conversations that flow from the things we all find important to share.
