Roshi embraces traveling far and wide and is inspired by the knowledge that each adventure a person partakes leaves a permanent stamp on the passport of the soul. The vibrations and culture of every city, old and new, impact the flavor of Roshi’s work. She enriched her natural talents by studying Art Foundations at Virginia Commonwealth University and Animation at the Arts Institute of Austin. Main influences of Roshi’s aesthetic include anime, manga, Japanese history, the history of the African Diaspora, mythology, linguistics, cymatics, quantum physics, and the natural elements.

Austin based artist Martin's colorful drawings, paintings and murals depict figures nestled inside abstract, ethereal environments. Navigating through soft silken swirls and glowing orbs, the people and animals engage the viewer with their various vulnerable moments. The theme of internal reflection and human interaction represented by tiny figures are staples of her work. A childhood in rural Michigan also gave her an appreciation for the fauna of the outdoors. Therefore animals (especially dogs, owls and foxes) are frequently featured in her work as a nod to nature and our place in it. Trained in medical illustration, her paintings often contain X-Ray vision of the anatomy of animals and people. Enchanting and weird, Martin's work captivates viewers on a deep level.

Liza Fishbone is an Austin based public and performance artist. From eight years old, she was climbing scaffolding alongside her parents painting murals in St. Louis. Growing up surrounded by painters, musicians and story-tellers taught her the importance of artists as keepers of culture and introduced her to world of thinking big. Her work is heavily influenced by her time spent in the scenic department of The Muny Opera, the studios of Syracuse University earning a BFA in fashion design, and traveling around the world with just a backpack. Fishbone’s work is a reality based on the fusion of places she’s explored and her interactions on the road. Through installation, character design, performance and painting, she creates mythical worlds that explore the idea of “home.”

Liza is the creator of The Moon Puppies a larger-than-life universe of wiggling, giggling aliens and the world they come from. Both a performance troupe and interactive playspace, The Moon Puppies invite viewers to engage in their childlike sense of wonder. Fishbone’s work invites viewers to leave their normal and travel to another realm.

Tourmaline Todd:
Experience, inspiration, and observation are three things that artist Tourmaline Todd lives for. In his years exploring the planet, he has used all of his senses to absorb his surroundings. Growing up in the creative center of Austin, Texas he found many ways to express himself, whether it was painting tigers in art class, building forts in the woods, or playing the trumpet and guitar, his talents were recognized at an early age. He pursued his design interests by attending college at the University of Colorado in Boulder and was granted an environmental design degree in 2002.

However, much more was learned in his new environment than what was taught in school. His time in the mountains hiking and snowboarding allowed him to quiet his mind and find that which was unique to himself and what skills he could offer the world. After college, travels to Europe, New Zealand, and a long stint in Hawaii, his respect for nature and his love of creation was burning bright. He returned to Austin in 2007 to pursue his passions of visual and audible art and is now a featured live painter in the Austin live music scene. In the past 10 years, he has painted at events around the country, has been a part of many art shows around Austin, and has his art hanging on private collectors walls across the country. The present finds him exploring new techniques involving screen printing and large scale public street art. He is also currently involved in clothing and jewelry design.
