Who Are We?
As many of you know we've been creating art and music in Austin for many years now.

We paint.
We make batik fabric art.
We work on community art projects.
We write songs.
We perform music.
 

In 2015 Blue Cow Studio was built as a work and exhibition space. 

Why We Love to Create Art and Music
From a young age we were both interested in creating art and music. We are grateful and excited to be part of Austin's art community. We often work together, but we also work on community-based projects independently. For example, Melissa working with members of the community at Rosewood Zaragosa Neighborhood Center to create a community weaving project and exhibit called Interwoven and Ethan painting and designing murals with students at McBee Elementary School and Kealing Middle School that reflect the history and culture of the schools and neighborhoods. We are both in the planning phases of future community projects.   

We are inspired by
Imagination
The Creative process 
Collaborating with others 
Social Connection 
Writing & Performing songs

The Challenge of Being Independent
Over the years of working as independent artists, one of the constant challenges for us has been the unpredictability of income. We have appreciated the support of our friends and family over the years since the very first In House Gallery Christmas Art Show in 1999.  Blue Cow Studio is fiscally sponsored by Austin Creative Alliance which allows us to receive funding from the City of Austin's Cultural Arts Division. This funding helps support the community projects we are excited and passionate about, but does not cover all the expenses involved. Patreon is a great way for you to support us on a monthly basis, giving us more stability and a consistent income source. Your support allows us to focus on making art and music and work on community art projects.

How Your Support Benefits You as Patrons 
We have monthly support tiers starting at $1.50/month. Gifts include access to patron-only content, a monthly newsletter, access to new songs, limited edition art prints and original Azarian paintings on woodblocks, 30% discount on art purchases (see tier levels for details).

Blue Cow Studio Is local. We create art with the community, for the community. By becoming a patron of Blue Cow Studio you're saying, "I like these guys.
