Allison Overpeck is a junior BFA major with a concentration in painting. She particularly enjoys using oil paints to explore texture and color and is inspired by the landscape of the American Southwest, focusing on rock and soil layers built up over time. The exaggerated feminine colors are supported by the strong rock subject to illustrate a graceful sturdiness found in women admired by the artist. After graduation, Allison plans to work at an art museum while painting, continuing to learn from old masters while adapting her skills for the future.
Kristin Boyer is a sophomore art major at Baylor University with a printmaking concentration. She is currently making prints through the process of lithography. She began taking art classes in middle school and high school and decided to pursue a career in art, taking inspiration from animals, nature, or personal experiences. Kristin is currently learning the Japanese language and has been incorporating her passion for the Japanese language and culture into some of her artwork. Kristin is excited to learn more about art and printmaking and to see what she can make in the future.
Claire Gustafson is a sophomore at Baylor University pursuing a BFA in studio art with a concentration in printmaking. She’s been passionate about art from an early age and is enjoying getting the opportunity at Baylor to pursue that passion and figure out how to make a career out of it. Most of her art stems from personal experiences and from my family. She has always felt a strong connection to her family and I loves to portray the different aspects of her lineage.
Maddie Rose comes from a small town in north Texas and is a Junior Studio Art major with a painting concentration at Baylor University.

Avery Tianjing is a Senior BFA Studio Art major with a concentration in painting. Pop culture, fashion, and graffiti all influence his work. Avery is exploring painting on both canvases and found objects. His acrylic paintings combine pouring and text. The pouring part is inspired by the natural pattern and multiple colors of a Russian amber, the typeface design is inspired by Virgil Abloh, a famous fashion designer. Avery is also painting on Be@rbrick classic street culture art figures. He considers them a guardian figure and uses them as his canvas. These paintings include symbolic references to Chinese folk tales and pop culture references.
Marcie Reed is a Junior at Baylor University is working towards a BFA degree majoring in Painting. She has been married for 21 years and has a daughter in college at UMHB studying Nursing. Marcie is exploring interests in color and shape, often inspired and informed by household items and her interest in fibers and sewing.
John Singletary is a Dallas based visual artist working mainly with the painting medium who is currently shaping his ideas in Baylor University’s Studio Art program. He currently teaches a middle school Art class through Art Center Waco in Waco, Texas. John’s work is heavily motivated by the natural beauty of reality, and the infinite parallels that the universe has to offer. His contemporary surrealist compositions can be described as ”mental realism” or visual depictions of the minds of his characters. In his most recent works and studies, he has been inspired by the African-American cowboy and aims to dissect his thoughts and emotion through the medium of oil paint. With heavy use of symbolism, he trusts the viewer to become lost in the theatrical nature of his work and believes each painting should provide a beautifully exhausting experience in itself.
