With a family history of artists and other creative types, Caryn Landauer was born with creativity flowing through her veins. She started with photography in the 3rd grade.

With that spark, she was inspired further to become an artist by her mother, Ruth Landauer, who has served as her business partner at Landauer-Art Showroom since 1998.

“When I was young, I started taking photographs in the 3rd grade and so I’ve always done something on the artsy side,” she said.

After growing up in the Spring Branch area, Caryn Landauer expresses amazement about how the neighborhood has changed and grown lately. Many people have asked her about moving elsewhere, but in her response she shares how she loves the Spring Branch District and wants to continue living there.

“I grew up around this area and I just liked it. It was very different, and back then, I had to bring art to people because they wouldn’t come over here. So it has been amazing watching this neighborhood change. It’s unbelievable to see the house and the complexes going up and it’s been really fun to watch that.”

At the gallery, she explained that she continues to thoroughly enjoy being a painter because the creative process allows her to follow inspiration from within.

“I like the freedom of what comes from inside of me,” she said.

Looking around the gallery, a visitor might think the versatile art work came from dozens of artists. In actuality, the work comes mostly from Caryn, her mother Ruth, other artist relatives, plus a few sculptors and other artists.

Caryn Landauer described the works as covering a wide spectrum of styles and materials: Abstract, acrylics, water colors, pastels, 3D, metallics, wood, clay, printing and more. The business also offers photo restoration services. In addition, Landauer Art sells art created by artists including Renee Rubin(identical twin of Ruth), Ken Landauer furniture and sculptures, Lydia Corbett/Sylvette David (a Picasso Muse) plus more.

The business also offers framing services, creative digital art, copy, scanning, photo restoration services, photography, sculptures, pet portraits, etc. Caryn constantly consults at customer’s residences, offices, or even beach houses.

Landauer Art has participated in many galas and charitable events in the last 24 years.

During my visit to the gallery, I was curious to know what her favorite artwork was. She said textured artwork and pieces that “pop” happen to be her favorites — and that she enjoys the peaceful process of just sitting, looking and getting her creative mind going.
