Artist statement: “Photography is my paintbrush. If I could paint or draw I would be busy creating non-stop. However, I presently lack the skills or patience to sit down and draw proper stick figures or a bowl of fruit. For now photography is my passion and medium. In the future who knows. I enjoy finding the unique images in day to day life. Typically I capture an image when I’m out on one of my daily walks. Always looking around, searching for that image that calls to me, grabs hold of my attention and won’t let go.”

Meet the Jury
Huge thanks to our amazing volunteer jury for spending many thoughtful hours curating our show!
Twelve years ago, after retiring from a 42 year career that initially focused on accounting and grew into many diverse and wonderful opportunities, Dan moved back to Seattle from the Eastside. He lived in this area several times as a child and always enjoyed the zoo. His childhood was rife with challenges and art brought him relief and focus. At seven he was constantly drawing and by ten the local butcher shop was providing him with paper that he turned into large murals that his mother displayed in the dining room. He was the art director for his high school newspaper, completed art projects through his life and for many years designed and created holiday gifts for friends and family. His grandfather was a wood artist and his mother was known for her oil paintings. They provided Dan with an obsession for art that has no boundaries as long as it brings beauty and expression. Dan’s passions include his family, the environment, art and social justice.
Patrick is a portrait/editorial photographer living in Seattle. Obtaining a commercial art degree from the Art Institute of Seattle was the first step developing his artistic style. Lighting, styling and subject matter are the focus of his art. Collaboration with other artists and working with interesting subjects are what drives his creativity. Patrick has been fortunate enough to contribute to local publications as well as showcase personal work. Having been part of the 619 Western Artist Building, he knows how important art is to a community and it’s ability to bring people together.
Paul was born in Tacoma, grew up in Mountlake Terrace, and attended Linfield College and The Evergreen State College. His education focused on painting and sculpture with a dash of programming for computer graphics. He taught computer programming at SSCC. This led to work illustrating and animating software tutorials for Microsoft. In 1997 Paul became a full-time artist. He had a studio in a converted Ballard farmhouse until 2014. Paul now works in a studio in his backyard in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. It’s a place where he can reflect on and respond to his urban expeditions.
