Tim Wistrom

He’s often referred to as “the artist that paints Seattle underwater” or “the artist that paints peaceful post-apocalyptic scenes of  cities.”  Still other people know him as the artist that creates amazing surrealism, so detailed it looks like a photograph. And many had the opportunity to watch him paint Continue reading

Bill Matheson~

We are so happy to house a wide selection of creations by local metal artist, Bill Matheson.  Bill has worked as a professional artist since 1973.   He specializes in scenes influenced by the beauty of the great northwest and San Juan Islands, for which he calls home.

“When you are lucky enough to live in this area, it is impossible not to be influenced by the beauty of the bald eagle, grace of the great blue heron, and the abundance of water fowl and shore birds which we encounter on a daily basis.”

Bill uses these sightings to Continue reading

Steel Dreams~

Don and Scot met in Leaburg, Oregon while both were apprenticing under a well-known Northwest metal sculptor. The friendship was forged. After years of study, they began to apply their new found passion and ideas in the joint effort of creating their own sculptures. Both men live with their families in the Willamette Valley in Oregon where they find much inspiration from the beauty that surrounds them.

They share a common passion for family and the outdoors, as well as helping within their community. They find peace and purpose through their artwork. Whether at home, with their families, in the studio, or cruising the highways on their Harleys, they are always in the creative process.

David Varnau: Inspiration in Bronze

Profile Pic-David Varnau sm

Born and raised in rural Indiana, David Varnau grew up appreciating the lyrical in nature all around him.  A wide-eyed, nature child, he developed an eye for the subtle and sometimes striking beauty of everyday moments and encounters in his environment.  While pursuing a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Loyola University of Chicago, Varnau found himself fascinated with watching people of all ages and races in a large urban center and was intrigued by the language of the body as it expressed the range of human emotions.

“My decision to spend a year abroad in Rome during my junior year stimulated a lifelong love of classical sculpture. Then, upon  completion  of  my  degree, my work in psychology as a rehab counselor provided me with valuable insights into the vulnerable side of human nature.”

While receiving post-baccalaureate training in the field of prosthetics at UCLA, Varnau gained an in depth education in human anatomy and movement.  This launched a rewarding career of serving amputees for more than 35 years and Continue reading

Michael Correll, Art Bells

Mike Correll and his bells, 2015For over 30 years, Mike Correll has worked to create unique and beautiful art bells, ideal for garden areas, patios, courtyards… anywhere needing that extra special touch.
