Avery Orendorf is an Austin-based muralist, illustrator and dabbler in the Fine Arts. She lives with her husband and two sons south of the river where she spends her days designing, painting, playing and doing more laundry than she’d like to talk about. She hates cooking dinner and believes that a 100% taco diet is completely acceptable.
Avery’s hand-painted and hand-drawn graphics utilize clean line work, strong color combos and repeating patterns to create intricate but simple art pieces with a deep story potential. Her work is made for creative spaces, both on walls and on pages.
Avery started painting after an early career as a non profit professional and a quick break as a stay-at-home mom. Finger painting was fun and all, but Avery quickly realized that she needed a greater artistic challenge, so she opened the door to a new venture. A full creative life gives her all the necessary energy for epic Nerf battles at home.
Avery jumped feet first into the art world on a whim. She is self-taught through plenty of practice and hustle. She has managed in a few short years to develop a style of art that is fabulous, distinct and recognizable.
Avery’s work has been shown at Women and Their Work Gallery, Art for the People Gallery, Art.Work Austin, SprATX gallery and the Zach Scott Theatre as well as during the annual West Austin Studio Tour and East Austin Studio Tour.
On the interwebs, Avery has been featured in Voyage Houston, an Apartment Therapy House Call, and again for mural work and a furniture project . Avery has also been featured in Almost Real Things, SprATX and LiveMom. See a map of Avery O’s work on Wescover!
