Austin Smith is an emerging contemporary artist deeply committed to creative expression. He received formal training in painting, sculpture, and music from Central Washington University. Travel to Europe and an extended study of art in Santa Fe, New Mexico furthered his love of the arts. His works are in constant evolution, using new techniques and experimenting with both refined and organic materials. To Austin, the process of creating art is as rewarding as the finished product, if not more. Austin is grateful for the call into commissioned artwork. In both residential and commercial spaces, the artist enjoys developing a relationship with each client and creating artwork specific to their unique lifestyle and environment. The challenges and dynamics involved when working with others brings about a strong and rewarding connection with his art and everyday life.

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." -Albert Einstein

"I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing." -John 15:5
