Artist Statement
_____

Alexa believes that drawing mazes are the physical manifestation towards her own self-discovery. Maze-drawing is a visually stimulating process that functions as a form of meditation and healing, while also inviting an aspect of play. Alexa intuitively learned how to create mazes when she was very young. During high school, she would doodle mazes on notebook paper, challenging friends to secretly solve them during class. Within her first years of architecture school, she began to take her maze-making abilities seriously, integrating design knowledge and drafting techniques into her artistic process. Her mazes shifted from note-book paper to vellum, from #2 pencils to Micron ink pens - it was through this process in which MAZED was born.

All maze drawings are solvable and drawn freehand. Each piece has its own unique name and personality, drawing inspiration from objects, music, and memories: electronic rhythms, building fragments, tree bark textures, and human hair formations to name a few. As of 2022, Alexa has expanded beyond mazes, in which she also creates continuous lines drawings and repetitive patterns. The surface selected for each piece is just as important as the drawing, in which each surface is chosen to articulate the personality of the drawing. Her goal is to invite others to challenge themselves by finding their way through the lines and make time to be introspective.

billy + jess

In 2011, Billy + Jessica launched Son of a Sailor out of their East Austin home. Before they were even married, they knew they wanted to join forces creatively. Over a decade later, Son of a Sailor has become a staple Central Texas brand with two brick & mortar locations. Get to know the hands behind the goods.

deep in the heart of texas

While Jess was born in Texas, Billy "got here as fast as he could" as they say. Each having moved around the country more than their fair share, Billy and Jess met in San Francisco, and before too long Billy brought Jess back home.

A graphic designer and screenprinter by trade, Billy’s work takes on organic forms while Jessica’s background in fine art photography gives her a strong eye for framing, precision and composition. Son of a Sailor was born out of their shared love of thoughtful design and the ways it can spark joy in the lives of others.

Carefully Curated

With the belief that a rising tide raises all ships, they work hard to preserve the art of the handmade. Much of the inspiration behind Son of a Sailor's products comes from the application of color, pattern and geometry to materials with a rich history and story.

In our shop, you’ll find jewelry and lifestyle goods ranging from beaded earrings and bracelets to painted keychains, playful home goods and men’s leather accessories—all of which are designed with the intent of bringing happiness to life’s daily necessities.
