It's official, the return of WHAM is now less than three weeks away! In anticipation of the eleventh appearance of  Houston's favorite annual art market, we have been talking to some of the artists who will be participating this year. This week Fresh Arts gal Sarah Stevens caught up with fashion illustrator Rongrong DeVoe to get an exclusive insight into her life, work, and her thoughts on the best (and worst) gifts to give this holiday season.

So I have read your bio and it looks like you have had a pretty incredible life so far! How did you get to be where you are now?
I have always loved fashion and art! I moved to NYC to study Illustration at Fashion Institute of Technology from China in 2009 and worked as a fashion designer in Manhattan after I graduated. I want to be part of fashion industry while doing something I love, which is drawing.  I decide to become a fashion artist when I moved to Houston mid-year of 2014 and I have been working with fashion companies and ad agencies since then. 

How did you get into illustration? 
I learnt how to draw when I was a child. Art is always a big part of my life. So it is my dream to be a full time artist especially in fashion. I decided to pursue my dream to study illustration at at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Who or what inspires your work the most?
I admire a lot of artists, there are so many of them that inspire me. David Downton, Megan Hess, Izak Zenou….

What advice would you give to someone beginning a career in fashion design/illustration?
Do not be shy, show your work to people! Be a go-getter!

What brought you to Houston specifically?
My husband’s job transferred us from NYC to Houston! I am falling in love with this city more and more!

How does the art scene here differ from other places you have lived?
I think there are many kinds of amazing art in this city, people encourage creativity and are often open to experiment with it. I love to visit Silver St. Studio, it always inspires me!

What made you apply to WHAM? Have you been to the event before?
I am new to Houston. I have not joined WHAM before, I think I missed the deadline the last few times! That is why I am super excited for this one!

Have you participated in large-scale art markets before?
Never. I have not participated in any large-scale market before. And I am super excited to show people some of my original large-scale artworks for the first time!

Do you use your talent to make handmade gifts for friends and family during the holidays?
Yes, I did custom family portraits for my in-laws’ family.

What makes the perfect handmade gift?
I think it is something the artist put a lot of heart and thoughts into.

What is the worst gift you have ever received?
Pickles? Not one jar but two!!!!

In the beginning of the year, our friend Brittany Bly, organizer of PopShop Houston, gave us great advice of 10 Handmade Artists to Follow on Instagram.  Since then, we've enjoyed a new feed full of exciting looks into the beautiful practice of hardworking local artisans.  So in preparation of the 2016 Winter Holiday Art Market, we're adding our favorites to the list - and all of them are participating artists in this year's WHAM! 

We Agree! 
Brittany's got a great eye for style, design, and creativity.  So we definitely agree with her choices of these Instagram accounts:


Rongrong DeVoe is a first time WHAM artist and we're happy to have her!  Her body of work includes drawings and paintings that are influenced by her background in clothing design and fashion illustration.  Her Instagram is full of outfit inspiration for fashionistas and style-watchers. 


Tiny Deer Studio's Instagram is sure to brighten up your day (literally!).  Artist and photographer Jessica Watkins posts quirky, pastel photos of tiny animal pins, orchestrated scenes, and patterns you'll get lost in. She also features giveaway contests... and you could be the next winner! 

LuxCups is owned and operated by husband-wife team Libby and John Napier, and because we strongly believe you can never have too many animal cartoons in your feed, we had to include them in our list of favorite Instagrams.  Not only will you find their popular pins and jewelry on their page, but they also post sketches and in-process peeks

Even More to Love!
This year's WHAM features 90 artists, which means there's even more to love!  To get a better idea of what you'll find on November 18th, follow these Instagram accounts:

Brianna Land is the brains and braun behind Adrift in My Mind, a line of hand-crafted reclaimed wood artwork.  Although we believe her pieces somehow look more amazing in person, her IG posts are filled with stunning geometric assemblages, accompanied by insightful narrative captions in which Bri honestly discusses the struggles, triumphs, and inspiration behind her work.  

Homer Allen may be new to the Instagram game, but each one of his posts offers an awe-inspiring look at the hard work he puts into his artistic practice.  It's clear that he treats each of his paintings with individual care, allowing them to grow and flourish like the flowers he depicts.  We're excited to have this glimpse into Homer's practice and think you should follow him to come along for the ride as well!

Birch and Goldberry's Instagram account features photos of colorful landscapes and overgrown plants - and its easy to see where makers Hillaree Hamblin, Stephanie Hamblin, and Elizabeth Meeks get inspiration for their painterly handcrafted soaps and candles.  They also post sneak peeks of their handmade gift-wrapping paper, ensuring you'll be able to entirely complete your holiday shopping and gift preparation after one day at WHAM. 

Lisa Chow curates the perfect Instagram if you're not afraid of a little glitter bomb! Her images take us back to the joy of kindergarden craft time with the sophistication and style of young-adulthood.  The best part is... it's always party time with Lisa Chow!

Of course, we wish we could talk about what we love in each of our WHAM 2016 artists' Instagrams, but we're too busy refreshing our feeds and passing out likes!  However, we will be featuring each of the participating artists on our Instagram (@freshartsorg), so tune in to find other great profiles to follow!

Who are you looking forward to seeing at WHAM 2016?  Tell us in the comments or on Facebook, and most importantly - mark your calendars for the Winter Holiday Art Market, running November 18th thru the 20th!

Experimental Action

Experimental Action is a three day, innovative International performance art festival happening in February of 2017 that will feature a collection of ten groundbreaking International and non local performance artists along with 15 local performance artists. Each of the three nights will be hosted at a different downtown Houston venue and will consist of a series of engaging, participatory and experimental Performance Art works. Incoming performance artists will be speaking at area universities and leading workshops during the days. A symposium will be held to facilitate critical dialogue about the work presented. The festival creates a short term community. Through communal housing and meals, local artists and volunteers and incoming artists connect creating cultural exchange, lasting connections and future collaborations.
