I've been making art my whole life in Knoxville, TN. My illustrations are vintage-inspired, and often include pop culture, local landscapes, and social justice. I also love drawing portraits from life. Almost every piece starts with a simple ink drawing on paper. Illustration is a way for me to show that life is beautiful and strange through the small details.
Graphic Design - Print & Digital
I create print and digital graphics design using Adobe Creative Suite programs.
3D Printed goods
It started with a hand-me-down 3d printer and an idea for a birthday present. I printed an electric violin for my daughter. I was new to the technology, but that's okay - she was new to the violin.
That introduced me to what 3d printing can do, and I'm still exploring that with a little more knowledge and experience and a much nicer printer. Through Knox 3D Prints, I can share that with you too.
So take a moment. Look around, and see some of the neat things 3d printing can do.
Quilled art, Paper (Shaker style)baskets, Kiln Enamels jewelry and home decor
Have been a hand weaver and off-loom beader for over 40 years. For the past 10yrs I have been using paper as my medium to create colorful baskets and quilling to create pet portraits and other art pieces. I use a kiln to create enameled switchplates and jewelry components. I am a juried member of the Foothills Craft Guild in paper and jewelry.
Watercolor and acrylic paintings; relief and intaglio prints; folk art
Gay Bryant is an artist, painter, and printmaker who teaches regionally and resides in Knoxville, Tennessee. She has worked as a studio artist for the last 30 years and has been developing her art since grade school. A deep appreciation of nature, architecture, and events of everyday life are the driving forces in her work. Craftsmanship and traditional skills are used to depict the rich culture and landscape of eastern Tennessee. Woodcuts, linoleum block, etchings, and collagraphs make up her printmaking and her painting is done in watercolor or acrylic. Gay’s work is represented in regional galleries and in international collections. See artist’s website at http://www.gbryantstudio.com for samples of work.
Art and design
I'm an artist-designer that specializes in watercolor and acrylic painting with a love of lettering and design. I paint portraits (people, churches, houses, animals) and floral art.
Original art and custom pieces
I am a self-taught artist who paints portraits of people and animals, both for my personal collection and for commissions. I paint mainly in watercolors and acrylics on paper and stretched canvas.
Ink + Watercolor Prints, Cards, Stickers
Husband + wife duo making art from the places that matter to us or others.
Papergoods + Apparel + Custom Work
I create apparel with a purpose, quirky paper goods, and city maps. All of my product is hand drawn and then created into printed goods. Why waste time and hand draw? Because I'm a strong believer in the power of something that is handmade with love and care!
I am a Knoxville native and recent graduate of the University of Tennessee with a BFA in 2D art. I love bold color, pattern, pop culture, portraiture, fashion, and most importantly the wonderful city I live in!
Original drawings and watercolors that are then made into prints, cards and at Christmas time, ornaments.
After spending over 20 years as a fulltime mom for three children, I returned to my love of drawing and watercolor in the Fall of 2009. I specialize in drawing and painting flowers, nature and portraits. I’m especially fond of combining animals and flowers in the same piece. I use acid free papers and high-quality pencils and pigments, and all originals are sealed with a museum quality spray. I believe our lives are filled with lovely small moments that can easily be missed, therefore it is always my goal to try and capture them on paper. (At the moment, the best place to see recent work is on my Facebook Art page.)

Illustrations and Comics
I write and draw comics along with standalone illustrations. I graduated summa cum laude from UT after making my own major— Social Justice and Storytelling: Advocating for Human Rights Through Comics. Most of my work is digital art (drawn on an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil using Procreate or Adobe Draw and manipulated in Photoshop on my laptop), but I am versed in traditional media (India ink, pastels, oil paints, Intaglio) as well. My perspective as a feminist activist definitely informs my art.
Whatever you do, you're playing a highly sophisticated game of show and tell in order to connect with your audience. I work with you to create original hand-drawn illustrations that bring unique texture and character to those connections—whether they're happening in your neighborhood or bridging great distances.
Illustrations + Branding + Publication Layout
I am a graphic designer by trade but have been drawing since I was little, an activity that has brought me joy throughout my life. I graduated from NC State's College of Design, finding graphic design through my love of illustration. I have strived to combine my interests of art, design, and biology into work that is uniquely my own.

Nature Inspired Fine Art
I am an artist inspired by nature, interested in capturing very close-up or faraway views. My paintings are primarily watercolor, but I also dabble in acrylic and oil. They are derived from observable details of flowers or landscapes typically, often inspired by my photography and my imagination. God's creation is my biggest influence and I want to express its beauty through my work.
