ARTIST BIO

I was born in South Korea in 1964. Painting is my joyful moment from I was small. I am the youngest child. My parents always encouraged me to do something creative and gave me a big compliment even that was not a good piece. I majored nursing but I always harbor being an artist someday.  I served for Korean Army for 6 years and resigned as captain. It was an obligatory service because I received full scholarship for 4 years college education. I obtained master’s degree in public health. I taught at college and worked for a foreign company. I got married and divorced.  Right after divorce I immigrated with my son back in 2001. I started a new life here in USA with bare foot. I worked sometimes 16 hours.  I worked sometimes 7 days a week.  I had no space to think about other things to make money for bread and butter. I obtained another master’s degree and I have been working as a family nursed practitioner for 10 years. My only child who graduated Georgia Tech in May 2014. His major is industrial design. I have started to paint since my son left me for his college to solace my empty feelings. I filled out canvas with tears to miss my son.  I filled out canvas with tears to miss my family in Korea. I filled out canvas with tears while I was recovering from bilateral mastectomy.  I helped community based free clinic to donate my arts pieces for fund raising. All of things I see, watch, feel have been brought me inspiration into painting. I focus on reflecting love and warmth in my painting.

Time passed by while I paint I throw away all regret of past.
Time passed by while I paint I throw away all anxiety about future.
Now I paint with full of joyful mind morning by morning and day by day.

May be this is the power of doing what I truly love.

ARTIST BIO

Jennifer is an accomplished acrylic artist and Her works can be seen 180 galleries, in 9 countries. She also teaches workshops along the West Coast.

After spending nearly two years aboard a sailboat and cruising the West Coast, I really came to appreciate the quality of light and how different latitudes could affect the way I would see a subject. My favorite experience evolves around capturing warm reflected light on bougainvillea-draped buildings in Mexico. That same investigation of how light plays off of an item are what galvanizes me into painting a subject. It doesn’t matter if it is a ferryboat, a bouquet of flowers or an abstract. 

I am third generation artist one of the creator of the Skagit Valley Tulip poster for 2004 and Edmonds Arts Festival Poster. I recently designed Washington State’s new Heritage Birth Certificate and Edie Bauer’s summer 2010 Catalog. My work can be found in both private and corporate collections locally and international, including France and the Netherlands…And multiple beer and wine labels!


Joy Hagen

PSGNA



ARTIST BIO

As the daughter of a forester, Joy Hagen’s childhood was spent exploring logging roads and little-known hiking paths, camping deep in the forests alongside rushing rivers, and exploring rocky beaches of the Pacific Northwest. It also provided the opportunity to live in the Philippines and Panama. Her art depicts environments that reflect upon color, pattern, and mood and speaks to remembered moments through selected bits and pieces from the natural world, usually with a reference to trees.

Encaustic painting is Hagen’s preferred method for expressing this woodland environment. Wax, resin, and wood are more than simply the materials used to make art. They are products of the forest and provide the complexities of emotion inherent in their use as she creates an expression of the tactile and organic experience a walk in the woods evokes.

Hagen works out of her home studio in Kirkland, Washington. Her work is regularly exhibited at Studio 103 in Seattle’s Pioneer Square area. Most recent honors include a 2015 King County Open 4Culture grant; residencies in 2014, 2015, and 2016 at Centrum in Port Townsend, Washington; Finalist in The Artists Magazine 2012 and 2014 Annual Competitions; and Winner of the 2012 Kirkland Arts Center William Radcliffe Studio Challenge Award. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of Swedish Medical Group in Redmond and Everett; Swedish Medical Center’s Edmonds Cancer Institute in Edmonds; and at Kenmore City Hall.


Janet Wilson

PSGNA


ARTIST BIO

Janet was born in Washington State and currently lives in Seattle. She is an avid gardener, and this love of nature is clearly reflected in her work as an oil painter. Her interest in oil painting began 30 years ago, although she completed only a few paintings before getting caught up in her career. In early 2011, with some time available, she unpacked her easel and began painting in earnest.
Janet’s award winning work has shown in numerous northwest events as well as New York. She is the recipient of an Award of Excellence in the Chelsea 30th Annual Fine Art competition. 

Artist Statement:
I believe that, as artists, our artistic vision grows through our experiences in life. We have a vision, whether it is in planning a beautiful garden, taking a photo of a point of interest, or interpreting through what we paint. For me, a paintbrush is simply one beautiful way to express that vision.

My painting style is mostly self-taught – an ongoing journey of self-discovery, exploring and learning new techniques. Whether it is a landscape, an abstract, or something in between, I paint as I feel. I may use a photo for reference; however, it is only that. Once I am into a painting, I let it come to me and try not to force an outcome.

ARTIST BIO

I recently returned to the Fine Arts World. For the past twenty-five years I have been engaged in the exterior styling and interior design of large, private and production yachts. I have had the good fortune to travel throughout the world visiting and being exposed to cultural distinctions.

My primary painting medium is oil – oil paint, oil bar and oil pastel.

I graduated from the University of Puget Sound and continued post graduate study at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, California. My work has been shown in several one man shows and appeared in NW and national juried shows. Private and corporate collectors include: The Seattle Sailing Foundation, Ocean Alexander International, Clarkes Restaurants and American Savings Bank.

During the process of designing yacht interiors I was able to project my fine art as part of the decor package. I’m blessed to have my paintings hanging on clients’ yachts and in their homes.

I am an artist / member of the American Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) and The Peninsula Art League (PAL).

I look forward to the additional time now available to pursue my regard for fine art.

Artist Statement: “I paint.”

Mixed Messages for the Masses

Mixed Messages for the Masses


ARTIST BIO

I am a Kirkland based artist but grew up in the New York City area.  After completing a full time atelier program at Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, I incorporate the various facets of my past careers into my drawings and paintings.  I worked for the US federal government after earning my Master's in Public Policy and am influenced by social commentary in my choice of subjects and composition.  After teaching science for several years, I also establish a link to science and nature in many of my works. I feel very passionately that we need to engage with our nation's domestic and international policies to forward the causes of human rights and protecting the environment.  My voice in this discussion is my art.



Lanie Franza

Sadie Sullivan


ARTIST BIO

"Enriching people's lives through my art is one of the most gratifying aspects of being a painter. So many of us turn to nature to keep our fast paced, busy lives balanced. I enjoy painting dancers, still life and Northwest landscapes. Vibrant color and patterns of light are elements I use to create a sense of movement and optimism."

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Lanie studied at Stevenson Academy of Fine Arts, New York and Gage Academy, Seattle, WA. By glazing multiple layers of oil color, she achieves the profuse, luminous quality of early morning or late afternoon light. Her paintings have been described by collectors as rich, lush, elegant and evocative. They are in corporate and private collections throughout this region and the United States.

Since moving to Seattle in 1995, Lanie has painted numerous commissioned works. These include 35 paintings for 23 individuals and a total of 14 paintings for Zymogenetics, Seattle Science Foundation and Gonzaga University combined. Her work is included in the collections of Columbia Presbyterian Children's Hospital, New York and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Seattle, WA.

Lanie has participated in many solo and group shows in the region: Art Stall Gallery, Seattle, WA, monthly exhibits, Harbor History Museum 13th Annual Maritime Art Exhibition, (2012), Kirsten Gallery (2014), Seattle, WA (2011, 2009), Sequim Annual Juried Arts Festival, Sequim, WA (2010), Edmonds Arts Festival Juried Gallery, (2011, 2010) and Edmond's Public Library, Edmonds, WA (2013), EAFA Juried Members Show, Seattle, WA (2014, 2012, 2011, 2010), EAFA Annual Open Show, Seattle, WA (2012, 2010), Sabey Corporation, Georgetown, WA (2009), Make-A-Wish Auction Benefit, Seattle, WA (2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2009), ACT Theatre, Seattle, WA.

Artist Bio

Perhaps the self-taught artist has a fool for a student, but for reasons known and unknown, some of us must learn by solitary effort and experimentation, reading and watching; anything formally didactic does not fit.  And sometimes this dysfunction, this  constant reinventing of the wheel, yields happy rewards. 

Not until Diane Ackerman’s book “A Natural History of the Senses” was published in 1991 did Beth learn everyone does not experience synesthesia, association of specific colors with sounds, emotions, and tools of language, and a private world of visual constructs for time abstractions, projects and conditions of life.  She is tempted to believe visual artists experience this phenomenon in greater ratio than the general population, but so far random personal research has yielded nothing conclusive.  

Although in college she studied Russian (reading novels for credit was irresistible) she has worked professionally as a visual artist since age 21.  Immersion in the fiber arts eventually gave way to the real passion for simply painting.  Many recent works celebrate the sparky, disorienting counterpoint of natural accident to human design in our infrastructure and habitat.

Artist Bio

Randolph Jones was born in 1943 and grew up in the south. He has lived in Seattle since 1979, where he retired from law practice in 2005. Since then he has studied oil painting at the Gage Academy and with Ned Mueller.

Artist Statement

I want to paint convincing landscapes that the viewer will want to enter. 


Roderick Jones

PSGNA


Artist Bio

Rod Jones was raised mostly in Florida. He developed an early interest in chinese painting which led him to a B.A. and M.A. in chinese history, including courses in far eastern art history. These activities also gained him a wife, who was doing her M.A. in Far Eastern Art History. A year in Japan provided a rich opportunity to see the best of the best in Chinese and Japanese art.

Upon graduation prospects for teaching chinese history were dim, and he concluded that his options were law school or the salvation army. After graduating from the University of Washington law school he practiced in Seattle for 26 years, retiring in 2005, a sadder and wiser man.

Randolph Jones, Rod's twin brother, who had shared many of the same experiences, persuaded him to take oil painting lessons with Ned Mueller and at the Gage Academy of Realist Art. This has led to a new passion and an entirely new life as an artist.

Under the steady instruction and mentoring of Ned Mueller, one of the truly great painters of our time, Rod has developed the craft and judgment that is the foundation of contemporary realist art and seeks with each painting to take another step toward creating something beautiful.

Artist Bio

Over thirty years of my life have been dedicated to painting and experimenting with art. Day dreams, night dreams and all of the spare time I have is spent indulging in this passion. I therefore consider myself a full time artist, even though I have worked a full time job and raised two children.

Trying various mediums, mixing them, layering, adding and scrubbing off has been my technique. Know as an intuitive painter, my inspiration is inspired by many travels, intrest in nature and just experiencing life. I do my best work when I stop trying to make art and just let it happen.

Encaustic painting has captivated my interest as it is very challenging and forgiving. I love the sensual feeling it evokes. I am always learning new ways to master this medium.
