Artist Statement

Attending Burning Man in 2009 and 2010, I attempted to capture the spirit and energy of the event with hand-drawn postcards that were mailed to family and friends.

These 4 x 6 postcards are drawn on cold press watercolor paper. The process begins with a light pencil under drawing, followed with an ink sketch and layer of color applied with watercolor pencils.

The dramatic setting of the Black Rock Desert combined with the people, art installations, music, and mutant vehicles creates an enticing collection of subjects and events to experience.

C&P Coffee November Artist Leonardo Lanzolla


For the month of November at C & P Coffee Company, Leonardo Lanzolla. Born in Torino, Italy he moved to Seattle in 1987, where he lives and makes his art works. “In my art I live inside and breathe the same air and environment of my characters. I’m attracted from the human action-reaction dialogues with nature, animals, people and landscapes. In my works there is always an accent of myth, tradition and civilization. I investigate “human experiences” through spiritual and physical changes ( …overtures of colors….and figurative shapes..). The technique that I use in my process is called …”Sgraffito”…to Paint, Scratch or Carve on Plaster or Clay ( from the Italian Renaissance).”

ArtsWest November Show On the Edge


From November 9th through December 4th ArtsWest Gallery presents Erika Bass, Carole d’Inverno, John Lucas, and Lillyan George in the new gallery exhibition On the Edge. ArtsWest is pleased to feature four artists with such a distinctive edge, both literal and figurative. In AMP at ArtsWest we are very pleased to continue the extraordinary wall and ceiling installation, Disparate Dream, by Paul D. McKee.

Bass and d’Inverno’s intuitively designed abstract shapes and colors speak to autumn’s transition to soft, warmer light and the joyful times with family and friends at upcoming festivities. Educated in Belgium, d’Inverno’s whimsical shapes and colors are reminiscent of a map of fun times, square dancing, or being at the fair. Her work has been widely reviewed and is represented at Fetherston Gallery in Seattle.

Bass creates her art using block prints and gouache giving shape to the flow of nature with an innovative and expressive edge. She has an MFA in painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art and has taught art at esteemed institutions throughout the region including the Seattle Art Museum, Pratt, and University of Washington.
Lucas and George explore the contemplative and magical characters on the edge of fantasy and truth. Lucas’ introspective work literally places his thoughtful characters at the edge of three dimensional pieces that are at once painting and sculpture. His first passion for the things the earth is made of afforded him a BS in Geology followed shortly thereafter by a BFA from Cornish College of the Arts where he studied painting and sculpture.
George’s magical narrative paintings of charming monsters and women in ball gowns riding hairy beasts speak to desire and dreamscapes. George received her BFA from Western Washington University in 2008, but was first taught the craft of art from her mother, also an artist. George has shown her work across the nation from New York to Los Angeles to Miami.

Join the artists of On the Edge lively conversation at the opening reception during 2nd Thursday ArtWalk on November 11th from 6-7:30pm.

Keller Williams November Artists Sam Chapman and Janet Cooper



SAM CHAPMAN Painter

With images of jets, water, trees, and salmon; Sam Chapman considers himself a NW artist, although he grew up in Virginia and studied in Philadelphia and Rome. While in high school, Sam attended a 6-week language seminar in Leningrad and learned Russian with other American students. These past experiences have surfaced in his recent work. Sam works on paper because of its intimacy, soft, flexible, durable, and yet vulnerable enough to cut and tear. Sam believes that when drawing is at its best, the thought process is visible.

JANET COOPER
Jewelry

Every stone has its own meaning and unique expression. Janet’s passion is to turn them into beautiful expressions of jewelry. She began creating jewelry about four years ago when trying to decide what to do with a special amethyst necklace that had broken. The necklace had belonged to her grandmother, who had passed, so she wanted to create something very memorable with it. Janet took a class to learn how to make a bracelet and discovered how naturally jewelry making came to her. As she began wearing a few of her creations, everyone commented on how much they liked them and that she should “do that for a living”. She loves creating jewelry and seeing someone enjoy her creations. Janet will work with you to create your own special piece from something old or from the gemstones that she finds. Upon request, she is also happy to provide you with information on the specific healing properties and other information regarding the stones in your jewelry.


Emerald Spiral November Artist Michael Ness


Fantasy Artist Michael Ness
Drop in at The Emerald Spiral Coop, a magical crystal and art store to enjoy the otherworldly landscapes and charming
fantasy characters created by Michael Ness.
Mike has a proclivity for all things fantasy, supernatural, philosophical, and
spiritual, and this penchant is reflected in both his Visual and Literary work.
He loves Seattle, Coffee, Seahawks football, Fantasy, Terry Brooks, Dreams

"I originally delved into art as a form of enhancing my writing, a way for me to
envision and enrich worlds of ideas found in the tales I wished to tell, which
for me were generally a means of escape. Escape offered Freedom. Freedom offered
Exploration. Exploration granted Enlightenment, and as such, Art became a form
of Meditation, -a way to live. But ever evolving within me, and altering me as I go, both Art and Writing,
-Creating whole new worlds of wonder- allows me to grow and change and grow
again. I have become an architect of Life... -through the arts.
And this is the most divine I think I can be for the sake of the world and my
contribution to it. ~

Hotwire Online Coffeehouse November Artist Kim McCarthy


Growing up in the farmland and later living in
the city I developed a taste for urban street art such as wheat pasted
posters and flier's, stickers, stencils, murals and spray painted
graffiti. The "underground" and "outsider" art became part of my life.
Having my first solo art show at the age of sixteen gave a new meaning
to being an artist, I realized the potential in becoming a professional
artist. Using mainly spray paint, stencils and ink as mediums I create
images on almost any printable surface.I like to incorporate the old
traditions of paper cutting with a newer urban approach to painting. I'm
constantly trying new techniques and mediums to fine tune my work.
