The twenty-two year old, Laotian, Queer, intuitive painter and poet was born in Minnesota to immigrant parents.

My name is Eva Parker (they/them) and I am the owner of Theydy's Things. I specialize in making clay accessories though it didn't start off like that. I have always been interested in art and creating things. Theydy's Things named because of my non-binary identity. So these are truly a Theydy's Things. After going on my resin journey, I wanted to expand my creativity and that is why I started working with clay. In clay I found that I could make anything I wanted and it opened my art up to endless possibilities.

My name is Kiddia Talley, I am a self taught graphic artist. I've always had an interest in art but during the pandemic I was able to refocus on my art and build my portfolio.

Shaïna M. Caceres-Doliny (they/them) is a queer, non-binary, Haitian-American artist and designer from Miami, FL currently based in Greensboro, NC. They are a professional creative who is passionate about intentional art, design, and the power of the imaginative process. My paintings represent how I relate to liberation through the healing of my internal and external worlds by practicing deep shadow work. Through abstraction, I seek to create a new language that speaks to how I move through my healing process while existing in this world as “other” (Black, queer, non-binary, neurodivergent, & disabled) and invite others to join me in this through their own interpretation and meditation of my work.
