William Rankin McLure IV was born an artist. William was creative since he was a very young child through his God-given talent of art and design. Born in Louisiana, he and his family soon moved back to Alabama to be close to a large and loving family. William’s kindergarten teacher recognized his talent and wrote his mother a note when William was four years old for her to recognize, support, encourage and nurture William in his creativity and said that one day he would be a famous artist. William graduated from The Southern Institute of Design, where he was active in the American Society of Interior Designers as a student. His artwork can evolve from realism, to drawings, to sketches, to abstract at any given moment, and many times being created in literal hours during long evenings at home. His work has been featured on many design and art blogs, including Lonny Magazine, La Dolce Vita, Southern Living, Mark D. Sikes, and Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Magazine. He and Ran, his Weimaraner and constant companion, reside in Birmingham, Alabama.Shop Now
New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans-based artist, Alexis Walter has been painting her entire life. Having been mesmerized by Modernist Nicolas de Staël’s lush strokes of paint and dynamic use of color for as long as she can remember (one of her earliest art class memories is from grammar school when she was assigned to paint a painting in the style of one of our favorite artists. “Mine, of course, was de Staël,” she says), becoming a full-time artist was somewhat inevitable. Her work, which is comprised of oil and acrylic on canvas, reflects de Staël’s influence in its heavy layers and through Walter’s use of vibrant—yet not overpowering—color.
Walter’s sources of inspiration come through in her paintings as well. “The history of people and places, peeling back the layers of time to learn something or someone became what they are now, is fascinating to me,” she says. “I use my palette knife to create layers of dimension to tell a story and give a little bit of history to each piece. ”An affinity for design is also evident. While Walter ultimately decided to pursue art, in college she went back and forth between fine art and interior design, a passion that still factors into her work. “I think my love for interior design is a part of why I love painting so much. I work with designers a lot, painting commissions using their fabric, and wallpaper, and paint selections as my muses. I am able to be a part of the creative side of design work, which is my favorite part.”Shop Now

Born and raised in New Rochelle, New York, Chris evolved her work over the past two decades in her private studio in Vienna, Virginia. Her neutral palette conveys modern and organic elements such as metal, stone and fossils while her minimal paint marks preserve their stories.
“I paint to explore the intersection of personal authenticity and its interaction in the natural world. For me, painting is mystical and flows intuitively from inspiration that links my mind and heart together. Informed by my love of natural and inorganic objects and their minimal simplicity, my recent paintings honor the beauty and peaceful subtlety of these forms with a neutral palette and raw, minimal mark making. My intention is to provide evocative art that changes the energy of its surroundings and enables observers to form their own relationship with the work. My practice is complete when I leave nothing off of the canvas, but the tension between the negative space and paint feels entirely profound and reflects the objects which inspired it."
