Starla Michelle Halfmann is an Austin artist and Texas native, and received her BFA Degree in Design Communications from Texas Tech University. She paints in impasto style combined with mixed media. “I grew up on a farm in west Texas where the only access I had to art was a “P” encyclopedia. At 4 years old I would thumb through and turn to “Paintings”. In college I took an entry level class for design and picked up a paint brush and haven't put it down since. Painting is such a joy to me and I love sharing this passion with others."
