Mike Hooper

I’m retired and started doing crafts to help me stay busy. I’ve done different projects in the past. I’ve been doing this since 2021. I enjoy talking to people about what I do and how to take care of my items. I try to have fun

Sergio Luquin

¡Hola! My name is Sergio and I am from Spain. This is my second year working in Victoria as a teacher. I like painting in my free time. But my real passion is traveling and finding art around the world.

Leah Zuniga

Hi! I’m Leah and I am 12 years old. I like making art with acrylic paint and watercolors. I also like to make jewelry such as bracelets, earring and anklets. This will be my 6th art walk. In my free time I like to read, watch TV, and hang out with my friends.

Aubree Magaña

My name is Aubree Magaña, I’m 14 years old and go to Cade Middle School. I always loved to draw and create new things but I started to get more serious about art in my 6th grade art class. I tend to focus on more of a realism style when I draw. I mainly use color pencil or a regular graphite pencil because I love blending all the different values and colors. Every year I do the Houston Rodeo Art and I just recently placed 2nd. I also recently did the Junior VASE competition and scored a 4/4 and won a gold medallion. I hope to enter my pieces in more contests soon and I have such big goals for myself in the future with art.

Corina Gomez

My name is Corina Gomez, I’m a self taught Artist from Victoria, TX. My passion for art started when I was very young, probably around the age of 5. I’ve always loved to color, draw and paint. Throughout the years I’ve worked and experimented with several mediums to push myself and test my limits to see what I can create and what new skills I can master. I’ve worked with graphite, ink, pastels, charcoal, color pencil, watercolor and acrylic. I enjoy creating mixed media artwork, my more detailed work is done with color pencil and for the past few years I’ve worked more with trying to perfect my acrylic and watercolor skills. I’m open to any available opportunities to paint on a bigger scale than just canvas, I have never painted a mural, so given the opportunity to create one would be life changing for me.

Clinton Edwards

Hello, my name is Clinton Edwards, I was born and raised in Victoria.  My journey into art started when I drew pictures on my book covers in elementary school.  My first painting was in art class my junior year at St. Joeseph High School.  I would go on to take another art class my senior year which would be the extent of my art training. I received my bachelors and masters in geography at TCU and Texas State University.   I painted periodically for 17 years, getting more serious in 2021.  I havemany different styles and techniques, all self-taught.  With more experience, people would tell me that I was getting better which motivated me to keep painting.  Living in Houston in 2021 with a full-time job I painted part time.  I moved back to Victoria about a year ago and now I am a full-time artist, which I love.

Ashley Rambo

I started drawing when I borrowed a “How to Draw Manga” book in 5th grade that my friend had to pry back from my hands. Art has always been something to do with my hands, cartoons, graphic design, and recently watercolors, but over time it has been an avenue of creativity that brings light to my life, so I hope to spread that light to others.

Mike Michael

Mike Michael here!
I started off doing makeup because of my passion for art. Growing up my mom incorporated art into our activities at home. Paints and papier mâché.
Looking for work in NYC as a homeless young adult was scary. I painted for money. Murals and small commission pieces. Working at the FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology for contracted art (backgrounds/murals) for their theatre projects I was pulled to fill in for the makeup department. Never touching makeup before I was pushed to start that very second… “you know how to work a brush and paint? You got this!”
Weeks later I land a job at Sephora for the headquarter location in Manhattan. The fake it to make it attitude landed me the Senior Makeup Artist position. As a Senior Artist I had to create face charts using makeup. Every client received a face chart which included all the products I used to create their custom makeup look.
Face charts inspired me to start painting with makeup on actual canvases for art pieces I used to decorate my home. Art in general has always been an outlet for me. Makeup is art and I love when my clients allow me to create for them. Using makeup on canvases allows me to practice my technique and also connects the two elements for me. It just works.

Theo

I’m Theodore Dolezal, Theo to most people that know me, and I’m a straight up art junkie. Spray paint art and chainmaille jewelry have been my focus for the past year but I am slowly venturing into digital drawing and woodwork. I’m hoping to use the woodworking skills to build guitars within the next couple of months. I’m also a bass player and a former Co-Founding member of the local metal band WTM.
