Jenn Charkrow

Mixed Media Artist

Jenn started her journey in 2010 after she was laid off from her corporate design job. At the time I was really interested in Eco-fashion but I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Her work is darker, edgier with a twist of punk rock. Her emphasis is not only on style but also on the environment. 

JD Collins

Resin Artist

JD is a resin artist he focused on how color can make new creations. His work is playful, fun and childlike and takes inspiration from tie dye and pop culture.


Adda Christine Dahlke

Photographer

Adda Christine Dahlke is a

Photo Impressionist who lives in

Hoquiam, Washington.

 

Adda takes her photography to a different realm through the use

of alternative angles, props, digital editing techniques and

special lighting.

“Abstract photography allows me to use my camera, not to

represent or duplicate something, but to create a feeling,

sensation, or emotion through the use of shapes, angles, color,

textures, light and shadows.”

Evan Roy Dahlke

Abstract Painter

The art of Evan Roy Dahlke reflects his

own zest for living. Evan’s signature

abstract landscapes (aka “abscapes”)

with their vibrant colors and bold

textures please the eye and inspire the

soul. Evan’s paintings are created with

a minimum of twenty five layers, a

patient journey that transpires as he

searches for the final spoken word, the

truth and the passionate meaning of

each work.

 

Evan’s distinctive approach pulls the viewer into the art to feel the energy and vibrancy residing

there. Constantly challenging himself to experiment with new techniques and ways of layering

the products, Evan enjoys producing unique one-of-a kind works of art. His work is inspired by

life experiences, God’s creation and Biblical events. Evan has earned a solid reputation as an

artist, showcasing his works in multiple markets from coast to coast since 2007. Evan loves

bringing beauty, peace and joy into people’s homes through his art.

    Kassandra Davis

    Illustrator

    Kassandra Davis is a cartoonist, practicing for fifteen years and graduated from Cornish College of the Arts- yes, she does bring that up into every conversation because art school is expensive and she’s getting her money’s worth. Most well-known for her long-running Mockery and Vodka webcomic it has since June of 2019 evolved into a publication which acts as a home for all her comic creations of various subject matter and tone.  

    Being a queer Gothic cartoonist coexisting with Depression and Anxiety, she is never lacking a sense of humor laced with punches of snark and levity. Her current work spans from slice of life narratives to fantastical portraits of fictional characters, all of which provides personal and social commentaries she hopes the viewer and reader enjoy and take something away from.

    Kelsey Garland

    Resin, paintings, mixed media

    Kelsey’s creations merge nature and fantasy, depicting a whimsical realm where wildlife and human kind embrace one another. Her  paintings often show a figure consumed by mother nature, dissolving back into the planet they were created by. 

     

    Kelsey grew up in the Pacific Northwest and live in the Tacoma/Graham area with her husband and two boys. She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts with a Fine Art degree and has since been perfecting her creative skills and working as a commission artist.

    Stephanie Scottt

    Vanessa Steinhilb

    Digital, oil paints, mixed media

    Vanessa’s paintings exist in the margins between analogue and digital. All of the images are stolen (scavenged) and all of the images are sacred. She pulls from marginality, her own autobiography, in the images she creates, in the way she sees the world. She prefers to hover in the margins, taking in the room, observing what is happening from the sidelines. It is safer there, with the crows and the raccoons and the foxes and the coyotes who scavenge the urban sprawl. In the margins we are free.
