Skye Walker is an artist and designer. That is all he knows and it's all he's ever wanted to do. He is always striving to evolve as an artist and keep up with a world that is changing at an increasing rate.
Skye graduated from Oregon State University with a BFA in Graphic Design with a focus on Fine Arts. Design is rapidly changing with the advent of technology and everyone is able to work on computer programs. He takes pride in his design work because he focuses on making it great and not pieced together at the last minute. In this cookie cutter world of art and design, his focus is to stand out among the rest and create the best work he possibly can for his clients and employers. Skye has worked in-house and on freelance projects with such companies as: prAna, Rip Curl, Redsand, Haro Design, Dragon Optical, Nike Swim, Mountain Hardwear, LoTi and many more. He tries to diversify himself in an ever changing multi media landscape with print design, illustration, videography, paintings and more.
His paintings are inspired by both the human condition and the environments that surround us. He is also very intrigued by how we deal with each other as humans, both on a personal and physical level. It is a subject that has been dealt with in art for centuries and will keep being an important subject matter for as long as humans exist.

A note from Creative Director & Founder, Meg de Windt...
Since receiving my bachelor's degree in Communications & Marketing in 2004 from St. John Fisher College in NY, I realized a passion for creativity early on. I have worked in the design and advertising world for the past 7 years and have loved every minute of it. Call it an obsession... I'm never far from my computer or camera. Worboys Design was started in 2008 and it's been amazing to see the business grow!
My journey has consisted of Northern VA, Bangkok, Upstate NY, San Diego, Lake Tahoe, San Francisco and most recently Denver, with amazing travels mixed in between. I am truly blessed!

David is a celebrated Memphis-based Artist who feels the Heart & Soul of this Great city in every brushstroke of paint applied.
Drawing at an early age, it spiraled over the years from college art courses, to art exhibits, then commissioned works. This was the launching pad into a career in Art and becoming a professional Painter.
“In a drawing class I remember the instructor stated, ‘Never outline your art in Black Lines” – my reaction was, “‘Why not???.” I have never been one to follow instructions very well, so now ALL of my art has black outlines.
From that time on he continued his passion to create a different style unique to his own personality and inspirations.
“I think as an artist it is important to pull from all of your influences in life and two of my main ones are Music and Travel. Being from Memphis, it was inevitable that this city’s Soul & Rhythm coarse thru my veins and influence my Art. Along with music, As I travel thru different countries I immerse myself in their culture, incorporating aspects in each new painting in hopes of adding a touch of international flavor.”
That leads to asking how does all of that apply itself to the paint on canvas:
“Each painting begins with a composition of a scene which has a certain flow and rhythm so that your eye travels across it while at the same time a mixture of vivid colors convey a sense of mood. Maybe it’s a certain time of day or it could be the expression on a face. I want to create pieces that skew the usual everyday scenery and that are bold and energetic.”
A few of the charities David works with include: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, STAX Academy, The Grizzlies Foundation, BRIDGES, LeBonheur Children’s Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, Monogram Loves Kids, The Orpheum Theatre & the American Heart Association.
Added to that are certain accomplishments such as: 2011 Blues Music Awards, 2009 Memphis Redbirds Yearbook, the 2009-2013 Beale St. Wine Race Posters, 2009 Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, multiple covers of Memphis Downtowner Magazine and the CD artwork for FreeWorld’s From the Bluff.
If you Recognize any or all of these Memphis sites feel free to check out more of my Art on my Website.
It started in a kindergarten finger-painting class and grew from there.
I was born among the golden wheat fields of Saskatchewan. Raised by a carpenter and an electronic technician, I became fond of the hands-on approach. I cultivated my passion for photography at the Alberta College of Art and Design, and in 2002 moved to Toronto for the reaping. Inspired by many great image-makers, I have a fascination with visuals that combine different disciplines. I enjoy creating them in studio, in the great outdoors and, occasionally, with finger-paint.
