DEBORAH HARRISON – Artist
I’ve always been an artist at heart, if not always in practice. As a child, I read books to fertilize my mind and inspire my dexterous fingers to illustrate fantastical drawings and sculpt fun, little figurines. I adored art, and I knew I would be a famous artist one day! The older I became – specifically under the pressure of college life – the more I felt confined by influence and introspection.
My love for artists, and their genres, span a wide spectrum, so as an artist I struggle most with solidifying my message, style and voice. I am often distracted and conflicted by many interests – in life and when creating my art. I am often very critical, dissatisfied, and wrestle with completing a piece. My work never feels finished, especially when I reflect on older works from my now more experienced point of view.
What I have gathered here is a small collection of art from 2004-2015. I’m proud to show a cohesive collection where infusions of color and imagination link each and every piece together. And yet, I believe every piece is very different from the next. My hope is that my humor and sense of adventure shine through, and with that I have decided my “style” is one based on variety and light.
MIKE BAINTER – Graphic Designer
Marine and Wildlife Artist Mike Bainter is one of the hottest up and coming artist on the market today. Over the past few years Mike has been a featured artist for several large fishing tournaments including the Yamaha Contender Miami Billfish Tournament and the Red Ghost Stalk Tournament in Islamorada, Fla. Just recently Mike was honored as the Featured Artist for the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) Banquet in St. Augustine, Florida in December of 2015. His donations to the Hero’s on the Water, Spot Cup Fishing Tournament and many other tournaments both boating and kayak events alike has helped raise thousands of dollars for children with special needs, Military Vets and Conservation Groups like the CCA across the country.
Mike’s passion for the outdoors started out early in life while growing up on the coast of Pensacola, Fla with his father and living with his mother in central Alabama on Lake Martin as a young adult enjoying the best of what nature had to offer. After graduating high school Mike spent the next five years in the US Military as a Naval Seabee where served his country and was an active participant in Desert Shield/Storm Campaign before getting a medical discharge in 1992. Following his father’s death in 2012 Mike started his own business FishTail Artworks in honor of his dad, where he hopes to follow the dream they once shared together.
