Welcome to Painted Hippo Studio. I’m Keri Bas, and I create stories in textile and fiber, in paint and pencil, and in words. I enjoy telling tales of hope in the face of despair, of surreal worlds alongside our own, and of the power of people to shape their worlds.
Join me for a Creative Social (and join the Meetup), an opportunity to meet other local artists while working on portable projects. While COVID-19 is still a danger, all meetings will be virtual, through Zoom or another online tool.
I run the Houston Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Meetup, a place for aspiring and accomplished writers of all ages and speculative genres to meet, commiserate, learn, and grow. We will also be meeting virtually for the foreseeable future.
