GETTING CREATIVE IN THE STUDIO

95 Yesler Art Walk Sara Knowles_2

Every month in our studio we try and host an artist for our neighborhood’s art walk. It’s a great way to support other creatives – something our studio strives for – while inviting in friends and strangers to enjoy the space for an evening. I absolutely love doing it – we’ve seen some really fun […]

    Love all the artwork! The dis are so pretty! Would you ever consider hosting a jewelry artist from Atlanta? Or do like to host locals only? Thanks

      Hey Cindy – we tend to just feature artists from the Pacific Northwest, but if you ever make your way here, we’d be happy to host you for a runk show or something!

INSPIRED BY ART :: ‘SKY STAIRS’

NYSD ronald bricke bedroom aqua and purple

Whenever I see a color combo I love, I stick it away in a little file for future inspiration. Such was the case with this vibrant paint situation in the bedroom belonging to Ronald Bricke… A bit intense, yes, but beautiful all the same. I especially liked the addition of wood and a hint of […]

INSPIRATION :: COLLECTING + CREATING

Louise-Bourgeois-Untitled-2005-

In our office, we host a monthly art show as a part of the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk. For May, however, we didn’t have an artist lined up, so I put the call out to my office mates to see if anyone was interested in showing some of their own pieces – and […]

    Okay I’m crazy about the stitching! I’ve seen it somewhere before and I just think it is the coolest. Great picks, definitely inspiring! I’ve got an old canvas and a blank wall and may attempt some painting soon as well…

TIGER FLOWER STUDIO :: COLOR + WHIMSY FOR YOUR WALLS

I have a bad habit of getting a bit ‘matchy’ in my decorating (and wardrobing for that matter) and there’s no place that this bothers me more than when it comes to art. Sometimes I see pieces I love only to think ‘well, that’s not going to work in my house’. Of all things, art […]

    Personally, I believe it takes “all of the above” to enjoy art…first..I gravitate to the scene and then I find..it has all the colors I adore…and then it has to “fit in” with the surroundings. Done deal!! franki

    I love the idea that art should be purchased based on an emotional connection to the piece, not the fact that it matches your couch. Good point!! As we finish up our renovation and start to think about decorating, I will definitely keep that in mind! This was a helpful (and adorable) post – thanks!

NEW WORKS FROM JENNIFER AMENT

Jennifer Ament MaisonLuxe_75

I’ve posted many times on my friend Jennifer Ament and her artwork, but I’m super excited to share her latest work with you today because I think it showcases her talent as an artist of many mediums – from encaustics to linocuts – which I find incredible. Jen recently put together a show at Maison […]

    Beautiful works, I love the orange branch and the orange “wash” above it, what is the medium {wax?}, it looks so textural. The marble like pieces are wonderful, and her comment board is hilarious, this girl has obviously been to a few art shows before!!

    I love her use of texture and shape – very engaging. Used correctly, a lot of these pieces could work in even the most traditional of rooms. Just beautiful – thanks for sharing!

    Love this post. This was such an amazing show! Alyse and I both purchased a framed collage each from her newest collection for our homes that evening. The piece I bought {second photo, smallest galaxy circle with glitter strips} fits perfectly on my gallery wall in the living room. Seattle is so rich with talent and her work certainly stands out as some of Emerald City’s finest. -Amy

        Agh…I pondered for what seemed like an eternity. Everything was that good! This will certainly not be my last purchase from the hands of JA. The upside is that gem of piece is staying in Seattle. In fact, it travelled right back to West Seattle to be exact. Have a lovely holiday. -Amy
