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.

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

Vintage Birds by Pam Taylor

Home Sweet Home~

Pam Kueny Taylor is a mixed media artist living on the beautiful Whidbey Island; just a hop, skip and a jump from our little town!  She has been creating works of art as long as she can remember.  As a child, she would spend endless hours painting rocks, beading, drawing, or building things out of everyday objects.

As an adult, her passions have been glass work, copper sculptures and wood working.  She found that the world of Alternative and Steampunk art drew her in more than any other, so she gave it a try. These bird creations are the result.  They incorporate many of the elements that she has always loved through her many years of creating.

Most of the birds are vintage, hand carved, and hand painted.  Many of the fine details Continue reading
