Judith is driven by the creative expression of well-being through art.
She is an emerging photographer who discovered her artistic identity at age 50. Her photographs are naturally abstract images found at the confluence of the built world and our environment. Through her intuitive single-capture photographic process, Judith documents the transformative capabilities of the natural world.
“Human flourishing is the epic marker on your work, investing in the ups and downs.”-Royal Alley-Barnes, CoCA Seattle
I am a salvage artist. My style of collage and assemblage, my aesthetic, is much like a historian or archaeologist, to preserve what I unearth. There’s a deep connection I feel to the past, the beauty and the decay. Bits of ephemera, some centuries apart, are combined through folding, tearing, layering and peeling back, exposing an identity lost and creating a new history. Found materials are moved around like puzzle pieces looking to fit.
The Japanese word, mottainai, meaning ‘too good to waste,’ was used to describe boro fabric: textiles that have been mended and patched over and over. This resonates with me, so every scrap of antique paper, vintage fabric or rusted bit is saved until it finds a home in my art. I also feel the importance of using the original materials, not copies, to lend authenticity to myself and the voice and life of the original owner.
Colleen is a Seattle-based artist working with found and salvaged vintage and antique materials for assemblage and collage art as well as encaustic painting. Her work has been published in art books/magazines and she has shown throughout the Northwest, France and Scotland. In 2018 Colleen was accepted into a two week residency at Chateau d’Orquevaux in France. She balances her work between her home studio and her studio at Fogue Studios and Gallery in the Georgetown neighborhood, where she also teaches encaustic painting.

woods & water
The Woods & Water show presents landscapes of the Western States: forests, trees that form them, and rivers that feed them. It features scenes at Nancy’s tree farm here, in western Washington, as well as the terrains she hiked through in Arizona, Colorado, and Oregon. In addition to larger pieces painted in studio, the show includes smaller studies and plein-air works.
Nancy Romanovsky is an award-winning American landscape artist. Her paintings are held in private, nonprofit, and corporate collections in the USA, Brazil, Canada, Hungary, Italy, and Russia.
Nancy began oil painting at an early age and later studied art at Arizona State University, the Scottsdale Artists’ School, and privately with several American artists. In 2012, Nancy left her career in marketing to pursue painting fulltime. Her oil landscapes have rapidly become popular due to their unique style. Honest and non-pretentious, they expose the beauty of nature through a combination of light and shadow, with serendipitous plays of color.

After migrating to America and living in a different environment ...
she was inspired by her new place of residence; being in nature, she started painting with a new abstract style and color combinations.
Nasrin Tabatabaie's passion for art and painting began as a teenager, but it wasn't until 2010 that she became a professional painter and
continued her real style. In 2019, she became interested in making decorative and resin paintings. She began exploring a combination of
modern and rural subjects through texture and color, creating works that tell a different story to each viewer.

We belong to the elements...
earth grounds and holds us, water provides and heals us, air revives and sustains us and fire fuels and humbles us.
Katherine creates expressionist works of art, primarily using oils and mixed media. Her concentration on earth, air, water and fire are informed by her lifelong passion for nature.
