About this Artist

Randy Twaddle has maintained a multi-disciplinary visual art practice for over thirty years, exhibiting throughout Texas and the nation since the early 1980’s. He has been the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship, a Cultural Arts Council of Houston Harris County Artist Award, an Award in the Visual Arts, and an Arch and Anne Giles Kimbrough Award from the Dallas Museum of Art. His work is in the permanent collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Brooklyn Museum, Arthur M. Sackler Museum, Harvard University, Yale University, and other institutions, as well as numerous corporate and private collections. In 1998, Twaddle co-founded the strategic communications and design firm ttweak, where he served as principal and creative director for 13 years, working with clients such as Zilkha Renewable Energy, Texas Children’s Hospital, MFAH, CAMH, The Menil Collection, and many others. Twaddle was co-creator of the Houston. It's Worth It. campaign, a ttweak project, which published three well-received, crowd-sourced books - HIWI: The Book, HIWI:Ike, and HIWI:Rice. Twaddle left ttweak in 2011 to return to his studio practice full time. Since then he has continued to exhibit drawings, prints and paintings, completed public and private art commissions in various media, designed textiles for Crypton, de- signed a line of Transformer Tiles for LaNova Tile, and a series of Transformer Rugs for Carol Piper Rugs.
