Meet The Team
Lizbeth Ortiz, Art director/Artist:
Lizbeth Ortiz graduated from HSPVA/Houston and attended Pratt Institute/NYC.
She has developed a singular style by utilizing recycled materials, various modeling pastes and gels into all of her art. “I love texture; I feel it is the perfect exclamation mark to create emotions, colors and memories.” Her work is both delicate in execution and strong in visual impact.

“…Tastes like Candy and Kicks like Whiskey.” Is the best way to describe the work of self taught artist Blue One Thirty. Her style has something for everyone, and is heavily influenced by so many things, especially her graffiti background, tattoo apprenticeship, and pop culture. Blue’s whimsical illustrative art often incorporates textile elements, layered cutouts, and anything her imagination cooks up.
