Original Art and Design by Rachel Anne Ridge and Tom Ridge



Tom Ridge and Rachel Anne Ridge, artists and owners of Artifex Studio.

As an artists in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, our work creates beautiful spaces in residential and corporate  settings. Specializing in murals, surface design, custom original art, and space planning that integrates color and creative design, we work with our clients to provide them with spaces that reflect their personal aesthetic and vision.

From mixed media collage and paint, plasters and metals, photography and printing, we find the right medium for the right space. Each project demands its own design solution, and our specialty is listening to the space, the client, and our own creative voice to produce custom art pieces that fit, perfectly.



Inspired by the outdoors, gardens, and the love of our own children and grandchildren, we find delight in the details. Endlessly curious, excited by new discoveries, we love what we do.
