Art was always a class I would sign up for in school. However, it wasn’t until three years ago that I became familiar with a paint brush & different mediums of paint. I started out with ‘Tacoma Rocks’ after finding a cute little Ladybug rock. I remember my grandmother painting Ladybug rocks for her garden, so I decided to give it a try. Canvas is still fairly new to me, but I do enjoy painting on the larger flatter surfaces. My style is definitely whimsical and colorful.

Jenica is a Seattle designer and illustrator who is currently exploring grotesque comedy and mystery in fleshy symbioses.
Obsessed with upcycling and craving variety, what I create is always changing. Recently I’ve been shamelessly into color and how therapeutic it can be, especially during a Seattle winter. I’m also metatarsal-deep in a new series inspired by Orville Peck, whom hath burst the walls of my heart chakra completely, and udder-ly (cowfolk pun intended), open. Yee haw. Instagram: @damb.yeah

Karen Johanson is a Pacific Northwest photographer whose work utilizes the alternative process of cyanotypes to showcase imagery that is frequently focused on urban life – everything from graffiti to architectural elements. Because cyanotypes rely on a single hue – blue – to relay the specifics of an image, the viewer can focus on abstract elements in a way that moves the mind away from the representational and to the inner world of contemplation.
CANCELLED — The “More Than Muses” show is being cancelled for Friday due to the escalating situation with COVID-19 and the newest restrictions around public events. However, some of the individual galleries at the Greenwood Art Collective are still planning to be open Friday, including Venn, Mutiny, Lamp Post, and Easel Seams.
Black & white film photography by Ryan Synovec. Shot with a “Holga” plastic toy camera and infrared film,the uniquely beautiful image created is soft, muted, never truly in focus, giving a somewhat surreal feel to each image. His images have been published several times in Black & White magazine and also in Shadow and Light magazine. They have been shown in solo and group exhibitions across the country.
