Makes: Original abstract ink drawings and unique home items with original prints

How did you get involved in making and creating?

Andrea Lewicki ArtAndrea Lewicki Art paintings

Makes: Sewn collage art, collage kits, and tiny pieces of joy

What inspires you to make and create?

“I love the community feel of the neighborhood and I enjoy talking with everyone who comes out to see the art.”

Since then I started teaching art within my Spanish speaking community and that led me to become a full time Teaching Artist. During all these years I’ve been creating lessons and exploring different mediums: acrylics, recycle, watercolors, etc. I create something on a daily basis: a sketch, a pinch pot, a paper sculpture. Most of the time I create small series of Mixed Media with different themes.”

Hard not to live in the PNW and not feel a blanket of inspiration.”

Majken: “The ceramic platter with my son’s handprints on it broke and I couldn’t bear to part with it. I stumbled across Seattle Mosaic Arts and my wonderful mosaic journey of 13 years began!”

Bridget: “I fell in love with glass. I love the color and the texture and the way the light transforms as it moves through this transparent material. I started as a glass blower. I love the way that molten glass can be pushed and pulled, it can be rolled and blown like a balloon! And then when it’s cool it’s sharply dangerous.”

When I am drawing Nutty Squirrel Gelato I’m not just outlining the architecture – I’m thinking about the lovely owners, and the time my friend bought me a chocolate sundae for my birthday. I want that love to show up in my art. I love looking at old maps, or historical records of what a building has been in the past. It is just a joy to really get to know a place.”

Makes: Delightful refrigerator magnets, greeting cards and prints

What inspires you to make and create?

“As an artist I am enchanted with the color beauty and grace inherent in fresh vegetables and fruit. I combined these two passions in the series of 23 playful paintings entitled Women Dancing with Vegetables. These paintings depict the wonder and joy that comes from eating vegetables and fruit that are brimming with life force. When we eat these life plants, we infuse our bodies with vitality. I wanted to create artwork that would brighten the kitchen, send a smile to someone in a card. The refrigerator magnets can remind you that you have vegetables waiting to be steamed or made into a salad to be eaten before they wilt!”
