Maria Montiel  :  an artist/graphic designer specialized in textile design, with several years of experience in the field and with clients originating from Venezuela, Canada, United States, United Kingdom, among others. Originally from Venezuela, the study of Maria stands at Madrid, but she acknowledges that much of her influence comes from Latin American with its vivid colors and organic textures. However, the Iberian metropolis also defines some sight with experimental organized chaos and neon signs. Maria, comes from a home where art and architecture were a constant stimulus and now translate into a fresh and vibrant work of varied influences, where shapes and natural colors are bi-dimensional conception.

Andrea Lauren was a New York City based artist and currently live in North Calorina, illustrator creating whimsical, colorful pieces under the studio name Paper-Sparrow. Inspired by her classical music training and a love of nature, Andrea’s art often combines these two passions. Her art has recently been featured by musicians on album covers as well as music publications. Since beginning Paper-Sparrow in 2007, the generous support of the community has been uplifting and Andrea is honored to be doing something she loves.
