“My work is a blending of photography and painting. I paint with a computer. Digital painting is an emerging art form where traditional painting techniques and styles are applied using a computer as a tube of paint and a digital tablet and stylus for a paint brush. Each brush stoke is applied individually, by hand. I consider the camera my sketchbook. When I look through the lens I see the beginning of a work of art. It is the bones on which to build.” 

Robbin Loomas, an award winning photographer and digital artist, received her BFA in photography from the Kansas City Art Institute. Working as a freelance photographer in Kansas City, then as head of photography for University Relations at KU, she now has her own studio, in Lawrence, Kansas. Robbin creates paintings from her photography, and does commissioned work from the images of others. She teaches this technique and painting style at the Lawrence Arts Center, Baker University and to professionals throughout the Midwest. You can view her work online at www.robbinloomas.com.

Born and raised in Prairie Village, Kansas, Nick Schmiedeler attended Rockhurst High School then went on to Kansas State University and Avila University where he received a Bachelor’s in Nursing in 1995.

Moving to Lawrence, Kansas in 1996 with his wife Cindy, they purchased a 19th century craftsman home in Old West Lawrence where a rustic, folk-art environment was being cultivated. Their art environment home was featured on HGTV’s “Home Strange Home” series in December of 2012.

Utilizing salvage and scrap metal yards often, along with city alleys, nature trails, river banks, and other locales, Nick searches out natural, discarded, and reusable materials to create indoor and outdoor sculptures.

Nick has been exhibiting and selling sculptures throughout the Midwest for about 20 years. Many of his pieces can be found on his website, nickschmiedeler.com.

Paxico Sausage (Paxico, KS) – Logo & Packaging Design

Simple design never gets old.

We first designed these labels almost 15 years ago. The logo harkens back to the post-Civil War era yet manages a clean and modern feel. The label packs an abundance of information but doesn’t feel like too much – a harmonious color scheme and well-structured typography for the win!
