Karla Funderburk

My ceramic work evolved out of a renewed evaluation of my creative

process, my inner vision and my understanding of the universe as a whole. I have always been fascinated with science and our ever-expanding comprehension of the laws of our multiverse (String Theory, M-Theory and Multiple Universes). 

My ceramic forms are influenced by and reflect on these concepts, in particular, the Law of the Conservation of Energy, which states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; it can only be transformed. These truths, along with my belief that we are all made of that same energy that is constantly transforming and redefining us, motivates and inspires my art and my life. As I embrace this multidimensional, multilayered universe, I recognize the infinite points of connections that unify all of us to everyone and everything. 

As we co-exist and consist of that same MATTER that binds us within this Universe, we breathe that same One Breath that weaves us all from that same One Whole.


Walter Johnson

Walter Johnson learned early to rely on his imagination during his childhood as a Navy brat, which required the family to move each year. Originally, he dreamed of becoming an actor or dancer. Since his father was a painter, and art supplies were readily available, his creativity soon found an outlet in his own paintings.

Johnson enjoys making happy, bold, colorful paintings, however, he continually returns to more somber images. In particular, he feels a kinship with the homeless and their plight, and by depicting them, and aspects of their lives, he validates their humanity. His recent series, Targets, focuses on police killings of innocent people, and the physical and spiritual destruction that results.

For more information about Walter Johnson's life and creative process, you can listen to his audio interview below.

Trazail Tucker


Now based in Los Angeles, Trazail Tucker was raised in Fort Worth, Texas. 

He discovered his talent as a visual artist while pursuing his degree at the 

University of Houston. He is widely known through the character 

“Tuck The Float”, which he created as an offbeat commentary on more conventional cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse and Spongebob Squarepants. 

Tucker mixes artistic styles, including Expression, Realism and others, using 

“Tuck the Float” as his main subject. Through this surrogate, and his use of color, texture and symbolism, Tucker channels narratives from the obstacles and complications of his life experience as an urban youth to his current struggles as a corporate American. 

In a short period Tucker’s work has appeared in group shows and is part of numerous private collections. Tucker continues to break through boundaries on his journey to become an artist who is known throughout the world.
