Mercedez Rex is an Austin based artist and creativity enthusiast who favors processes that allow for chance, unpredictability and play. She began experimenting with surface design in textiles in 2013 and shortly there after founded her eponymous collection of accessories and home goods. After discovering the magic of water marbling, her focus shifted from dyes on textiles to pigments mono-printed on silk, leather and paper.
Mercedez believes that everyone has creative potential and that cultivating creativity is a worthwhile pursuit. Her goal in teaching workshops is to encourage others to tap into their own creativity. She does this first and foremost, by offering guidance and instruction on a craft she is passionate about but more importantly, by fostering an environment that values playful experimentation and process over comparison, perfectionism, and fear of failure.
