Leonie’s Treasures – mixed media art – Olympia, WA

I am a mixed media artist and create one off treasures. Living in the forest outside Olympia, WA.I Recently I decided to create "Wood Fairies" , as the woods inspired me, and the abundance of moss, leaves, bark, wood, and other natural "ingredients" makes it a pleasure to be creative. I also make my own natural dyes and inks from wood, plants, leaves, vegetables and more, to apply to my fairies or the 100% silk scarves I create in my forest backgarden studio. Visit again in the future as I will upload some more images as time allows.

Wendy Dunder ~ Paintings, Murals & Illuminated Sculptures, Oregon

 [wpcol_1fifth id="" class="" style=""] [/wpcol_1fifth] [wpcol_2fifth id="" class="" style=""]The search for the transcendental light of dawn and dusk. I am enchanted by the light. Living in Oregon's Willamette Valley I find myself hungry for the big sky east of the mountains. My landscapes are a product of being deeply rooted in a Hood River orchard where I grew up. Working among the apples allowed me to watch the light move over the landscape and to truly appreciate subtle color changes. I attempt to hold all that is beautiful close to my heart. Shooting photographs at first and last light of the day reveals the essence of the feeling or the place... read more on my website: www.wendydunderart.com[/wpcol_2fifth] [wpcol_2fifth_end id="" class="" style=""] [/wpcol_2fifth_end] ...

Ann Munson ~ Paper Collages, Acrylics on Canvas art, Oregon

Ann Munson ~ Paper Collages, Acrylics on Canvas art, Oregon

Artists statement: My work is three parts, all fun.  First I carve stamps, cut up rubber combs and mix paint.  Then I make my own papers.  It’s pretty much finger painting for grownups. I cover the entire floor of the greenhouse with colored patterned sheets.  Next I draw, tear paper and glue shapes onto canvas.  It looks like a quilt at this stage.  Finally I use transparent acrylics to add dimension, light ,form, and air.  I’m drawn to a push pull of flat shapes and interesting textures vs. subtle color and atmosphere.  The mantra posted in my studio is “Visual complexity; compositional clarity.”  Huh.  Complexity and clarity.  “How did you say this damn thing works?” Visit Ann Munsons's website here: http://www.annmunson.com// // ...

Mixed Media Artist Victoria Hammond – herstoryvictoria.com

My name is Victoria Hammond and I am an artist who has always been intrigued by the creative ways people can use other people’s “junk” to make something totally new and wonderful. I have always been a “junker” at heart, loving to go to garage and estate sales and flea markets looking for that unique piece. I soon realized that it came naturally to me to find beauty and interest in ordinary things, many times broken things that most people might just toss away.  Visit Victoria's website here: http://herstoryvictoria.com/ In 1992, I started playing with my findings, initially making one-of-a-kind, recycled collage pins using broken jewelry, watch parts, and the like. I soon began incorporating old photos of women into my work, calling my line of pins “Herstory”. By using the old photos of women who have gone before us, I feel I’m bringing them back to life in a way, and honoring an existence that has probably been forgotten.  After taking Mixed Media, Collage, & Mosaic...
