Mercedez Rex Singleton, received her BFA in from Santa Fe University of Art and Design in 2003. She began experimenting with surface design in textiles by way of dyes in 2013 and founded her eponymous collection of accessories and home goods in 2016. After discovering the magic of water marbling, her focus has shifted from dyes on textiles, to pigments mono-printed on silk, leather and paper. She maintains a studio in Austin, Texas where she continues to explore the bounds of water marbling. Believing that everyone has creative potential and that cultivating creativity is a worthwhile pursuit, Mercedez offers marbling workshops and private DIY experiential art sessions as a means of reconnecting people with their inherent creativity.
