It's no secret that Hamilton County is a place to experience the arts, in all its forms. In fact, Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville's downtown areas have been named state-designated arts districts by the Indiana Arts Commission. Get to know the artists that help create such a dynamic destination.

Boxx The Artist


Boxx's work synthesizes cultural art through paintings, digital art, and public art installations. She is an Indianapolis based full-time visual artist practicing for approximately five years professionally, from Gary, Indiana. Her visual artwork uses acrylic, digital, mixed mediums, public installations, and motion film to capture different elements of life from the African diaspora celebrating the beauty in Blackness.

She installed a mural for the Habitat Exhibition at the Conner Prairie Museum made available by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition. Boxx has also had the opportunity to serve as the Maker-In-Resident for the Ignite Studio at the East Hamilton Public Library in Fishers. She is recognized as a Certified Minority/ Woman Owned Business in the State of Indiana.

Lisa B. Elliott

  • Medium: Acrylic paintings, cyanotype prints, corrugated carving, solar lanterns and street stenciling
  • City: Indianapolis
  • Where work can be purchased: Lisa Elliott ART


Lisa believes art should provoke thought in the way that it invites others to consider another’s viewpoint. She is the Land Artist for Conner Prairie/Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition 2022-24 Habitat, ,and the dragonfly art is on display at Conner Prairie near the covered bridge.

Her work was displayed at Ignite Studios at Hamilton East Public Library Fishers for the “BirchGrove” in The 700’s Exhibit in March 2023 and “Opportunity Knocks” in the Interiors Exhibit in January 2023.


Shelley Feeney

  • Medium: painting
  • City: Fishers
  • Where work can be purchased:
  • Favorite art & culture event: Spark!Fishers Car + Art Show


Shelley captures the raw beauty of natural objects and landscapes from different perspectives. She exaggerates the use of color, light and texture through the layering of paint. These bold patterns and lines created by the impasto of the paint creates a visual movement that easily take you in and out of her paintings.

She also received a Fishers Arts and Culture Commission grant this year, and will be screen printing manhole covers and various textures throughout the Nickel Plate District. 


Shaunt'e Lewis

  • Medium: multimedia but mostly digital illustration and more recently fiber art

  • Favorite art & culture event: An annual sneaker design competition that I put on alongside 31SVN Street Dance Academy with the help of a grant from the Fishers Arts and Culture Commission. This year it will be held on June 10.


Shaunt'e is a self-taught visual artist and illustrator. Her work centers around self-identity, black culture and femininity. She explores the relationship between feminism, black culture and the arts while incorporating bright colors and clean lines that uplift and inspire.

In celebration of Black History Month, Shaunt'e was one of three chosen artists to have products with my artwork featured in all 250 Meijer stores across the Midwest.


Joanne Roeder


Joanne finds such joy and gratification in her passion for art. She always wants to take advantage of any opportunity to learn and experience the pleasures of creating beautiful things.

Painting is an exciting life to be in, But the collecting public needs to remember that artists are trying to make a living, too.
