Featured Artist: Linda Brooks

Linda Brooks is a portrait photographer and educator based in Seattle. In her years as a professional portrait photographer, she has witnessed that families often have professional portraiture done of their children when they are babies and toddlers and then not again until they are graduating from high school or getting married!  And, in her decades working as an educator, she has recognized that the tween years are a time of big transitions and a time when self-esteem can be vulnerable.  What if we put more emphasis on celebrating this time?  What if we took an opportunity to reflect back to girls how strong, talented, and courageous they are! Imagine how this could positively impact girls as they head into their adolescent years.  This is how The Empower Project was born!

The goal of The Empower Project is to capture the personality and strength of tweens and reflect back to them how talented, smart, gifted, and loved they are simply for being themselves!  Linda wants to help tweens solidify their self-confidence, realize their true beauty and value, and to encourage them to lead empowered lives!

Flyning Bike -Amanda

Featured Artist: Amanda Johnson

I was born and raised in Fresno, CA and transplanted to the Pacific Northwest over four years ago. My artistic endeavors started at a young age and followed me through college, but it wasn’t until I moved up to the Seattle area that I truly found my inspiration. Having become obsessed with the outdoors and all the beautiful places the Northwest has to offer, my art began to follow suit. My pieces are an interpretation of my adventures and vary across several different mediums.

Flying Bike -Sayaka

Featured Artist: Sayaka Yoshinaga:

I was born in Seattle, but spent most of my childhood in Japan, so my first language is Japanese. My parents encouraged me to do art and entered my artworks into multiple art contests since I was a child. I ended up pursuing art in college and graduated from University of Washington with BFA in Drawing and Painting, and BA in Art History.

I was inspired by paintings from landscape artists, impressionists, and colorists. Particularly JMW Turner and Claude Monet when I was studying art history. Also, being a runner and being in the outdoors and nature influenced me to capture the atmosphere and temperature of the environment. I’m hoping to depict the light, mood, and air of the nature through my work.

Featured Artist: Julie White 

A lifelong bird lover, Shoreline-based artist Julie White started her own flock of backyard chickens last spring. Her media is colored pencils on paper and she sticks to a chicken-sized 5″x7″ format in the classic human-portrait format of showing head and upper body. She portrays the specific personality and emotion in each bird’s face and loves to evoke the feeling that the chicken is reacting to the viewer. The detail in her drawings is color-specific and sometimes the colors she discovers are as surprising to her as to the viewers of her work.

CYCLIST. BARTENDER. ARTIST.

As a Seattle transplant from Denver Colorado, I work as a bartender while enjoying the PNW outdoors in my spare time, primarily by bicycle.  I’ve had an interest for art and caricature drawings from a very young age and used to spend hours designing my own cartoon stories and illustrations. Just recently, I’ve enjoyed putting together this collection of animal characters influenced by the characters I’ve encountered in stories like Alice and Wonderland or simply the ones who come to drink a beer at my bar.

Featured Artist: Trevor Wright

Trevor Wright, a student at Western Washington University, uses his photography to highlight the beauty, struggle, and distorted harmony of the human condition. His images capitalize on bright, extreme color alterations, with a blend of relatable imagery to invite the viewer to see the balance in the imbalance; the beauty beneath the often faded filter of daily life. He leverages his photography to make clothes that print his messages onto the protection we drape ourselves in. The goal: to offer a gently compelling reminder to always, in all ways, StaeWrighteous.

“Beautiful Refuge”

“These paintings were created over the past year as I began to notice my relationship between seeing the sky and finding peace within myself. Each of these works shows a scene or a view that has lifted my heart. That sense of relief is really the crux of this work, they are about the solace to be found in our natural surroundings, and the romance of having a beautiful refuge for a moment, to remind myself to breathe.”

Featured Artist: Caitlin Fennelly

Caitlin Fennelly is a visual artist living and working in Seattle. Originally from Philadelphia PA, she has shown in several galleries across the country. Her work incorporates an underdrawn linear system to describe the connectivity of space. She draws from a spiritual influence, in which subjects embody “divine icons” in sacred spaces. The images suggest a solitary empowerment in the quiet details around us. Living in a society wrought with distractions, fast interactions- our sense of patience is disrupted. She creates work that offers an opportunity for reflection and the viewer to be here now.

Featured Artist: Anthony Garzzona:

HEADS is a series of characters with strong, less than perfect personalities. I try to imagine each head with a specific voice or behavior that plays on repeat to give the static illustration more presence.

Drawing has been my favored way to stay creative since the early school years. And it’s almost always been heads: human heads, monster heads, animal heads, your dad’s head, heads with heads, all the heads. I kept this attachment to character creation and drawing through college (Industrial Design major through the Art Institute of Seattle), and have applied it to my current career as a Senior Designer creating beer tap handles for local, national, and international breweries.

When starting a new character illustration, I start by thinking about the character’s personality, what features I want them to have, and how to exaggerate those features in ways to make final persona a little (or a lot) gross. I choose pen and ink for its simplicity, speed, quick contrast, and ability to create large bold areas and thin detailed ones.

Featured Artist: Chris Blakely

Seattle photographer Chris Blakeley first turned to toy photography when scheduling photo shoots turned into social calculus. Looking for something more immediate and portable, he first turned to toy dinosaurs before moving on to the infinite story telling possibilities found in Lego. He aims to craft narratives either in single images or full comic books such as his photo novel series Adrift and can usually be found crouching over rock gardens and parks looking for the just the right angle. He also hates talking about himself in the third person.
