Featured Artist: Amelia Sherritt

Amelia Sherritt has lived in the Seattle area her whole life and finds inspiration in her city as well as the surrounding beauty of the state of Washington.  Her passion lies within the study of Art History and love of industrious arts.  Amelia’s focus of creating recycled art started in 2007 and the palate of her work relies solely on the foils from emptied wine bottles.

Each piece of art contains hundreds, if not thousands of wine foils gathered from local wineries, restaurants and friendly winos.

“I love to think of how each foil represents a memory or experience shared.  By re-purposing these foils, I am able to make what would normally be thrown away into something long lasting and beautiful.”

Her current collection depicts a whimsical portrayal of various animals and other colorful subjects.

Mari Shibuya is a Seattle-based figurative painter combining realism with abstraction and geometry. She and Leo Shallat painted our mural in our studio!


Leo Shallat is a visual artist born and raised in Seattle, Washington. Leo’s work deconstructs letter forms to their bare elements, re-composing them in a fluid, instinctual dance to create abstract compositions that reflect a language of movement and flow.

Moksha Marquardt: is an American artist living in Seattle. His subject matter comes almost entirely from nature and there is a noticeable lack of man-made elements in his work.


Marina Montes is an oil painter with an affinity for astronomical beauty. Currently she’s on a mission to paint her love for the cosmos and meet like-minded humans.


Sarah Sarahenna is a henna artist that will be offering onsite henna tattoos. Sarah is fascinated with the intricacy and beauty of traditional Indian designs.

Sendai Mike is a local Seattleite DJ that aims to translate his story through his art for the people. Sendai will be spinning some awesome tunes.

“Witch Essence”
What does it mean to be a Witch? To call oneself and be called a Witch? To practice a craft that is timeless, yet ever-changing? To be of this world, but also walk in liminal realms and to see the unseen and speak with the unknown? Through mixed media, the artist explores the realm of spirit, spellcraft, and witchery.

Laura Tempest Zakroff is an artist, author, designer, and dancer, based in Seattle, Washington. Laura received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design. In her youth, she trained with honors at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia and was the first recipient of the Francis & Shirley Hipp award for excellence in the visual arts from the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts. Her artwork has received awards and recognition worldwide, and has been published in numerous books and magazines.

Laura works mainly in mixed media, combining printmaking techniques with painting and drawing, often using reclaimed wood and layered papers. Her work explores the realm of myth and other liminal spaces.

Featured Artist:  Tom Boatright and Artisan Oils 

The artisan oil paints that Tom creates allow him to paint a fluid style. He mixes raw oils, pigments, resins, powders and mica metallics to produce vibrant colors, surface textures, light refraction and organic patterns. The paints vary in viscosity and are layered, applied in a sequence, to produce certain effects. The painting may have heavy texture, luminescence or crystalline shapes. They collaborate with him in the process. More than color; they hold the energy:

“The paints are a prism of color; the vibrations create a light spectrum.” 

Tom’s process is alchemical; the paintings effect the artist and the audience. The canvas and paints are the container for the energy. It is an experiential process. If the art resonates, they convey emotion – they emote. It is escapism, through the illusion and glamour, to the real and illusive world beneath the surface. It is an invitation to experience the painting.

Featured Artist: Graham Shodda

My work is primarily assembled from discarded, recycled, or salvaged materials — mostly metal — and many from a bygone era where I find an intrinsic beauty and style in their design and construction. I endeavor to invent a new existence for these abandoned objects, repurposing their streamlined or eclectic forms into unique pieces of art.

A single piece of ‘junk’ is often all it takes to inspire a project. Most of the components in the finished sculpture are recognizable and invoke curiosity, pleasure, and wonder for the viewer, which to my mind is part of the purpose and beauty of art.

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, nature has always been a significant part of my life and I am in constant awe of the beauty that surrounds us here. I’m inspired every day by the lush foliage, the sparkling lakes, and most of all, the panoramic mountain views that encompass our city. This natural beauty has been a continual and dependable source of joy throughout my life, and my work is in dedication to that joy; a series of studies in the perpetual pursuit of capturing it on a canvas.

All my items are hand built then high fired.  I use paper clay for about 80% of the items I make.  The glaze will have a darker, earthier color.  I use a porcelain clay for the other 20%.  This allows for a brighter glaze color.  The high fire process allows each item to be used outside as it will not absorb water and also be microwave, dishwasher & oven safe.  Additionally, all glazes are food safe.

Featured Artist: David Eggehorm

Currently I am a Ballard High School student and paint whenever I can. I enjoy all types of art from the pencil drawings I did when I was younger to Aerosolgrafia (spray paint art), Acrylic on Canvas and Oil on Canvas. My most recent being Oil on Canvas. Over the last year, I have been looking into the field of digital concept art. I find that trying different art styles is enjoyable and has contributed to my growth as an artist.

I paint because it makes me happy, and if I can make others happy in the process then I know I’m doing the right thing. When I paint, I am always looking for new ways to express my ideas and get the viewer engaged as much as possible. My goal as an artist is to become the best I can be and use my God given talent to bless others.
