    Linda Steider - Steider Studios, Art Photography

    The more time I spend outside in nature, the more I want to be there. I want to capture everything I see with my camera so you can see it too. Something spiritual combined with luck and circumstance lead me to wildlife viewing opportunities, mostly in the Columbia River Gorge. I feel incredible gratitude for each gift of a photograph that I receive.


    I’ve sold my work since I was 16 years old, starting with macrame tie-dyed belts at the Rose Bowl Swap Meet back in the 60’s. I also sold them to my high school teachers, neighbors and relatives. I couldn’t stop making them. To this day I can’t stop making things, but I’m mostly in the field with my camera now.


    I’ve taken pictures since I was ten when I received a Kodak Instamatic camera for my birthday. I used my photography as studio reference material for 25 years until friends told me that my photos were good enough to ‘show’. I hope you think so too.


    My ultimate goal is sharing nature with people who can’t go where I go to see the magnificence of our natural world. Not just shut ins, wheelchair bound, too infirm or too young, but also those that spend all their time at work or at home taking care of others. I want to share how spectacular nature is, in our back yard and beyond.


    I have many images available for prints on paper, metal and canvas as well as all-occasion greeting cards. You can order prints in all standard sizes on any media. See more of my work on my website and social media. Just look for Steider Studios

    Ashley Nelson - Brush and Saw Studio, Watercolor and Wood

    My grandmother first introduced me to watercolors when I was no more than two years old. She herself is a world renowned painter and leather worker and she taught me the finer details of drawing and painting as I grew older.


    I love to create scenes of nature whether it involves a landscape or an animal. My inspiration comes from the beauty around me and I often find myself absorbed by every last detail while I’m on a hike or driving down the Gorge. I also enjoy farm scenes. I grew up on a farm and love the colors and animals you can find in the country. Watercolor is my primary medium and offers both a challenge and feeling of wonder. There is something magical about the letting paint mix on paper and embracing the end result.


    I work in my studio in White Salmon, WA on my pear orchard. The Columbia River Gorge is ultimate place to seek inspiration. From its steep, mountainous walls, its mighty volcanoes, and colorful, ever-changing skies I will always have something to paint.


    I am originally from Renton, WA but I have lived in Pullman, WA and Kalamazoo, MI. The Gorge is my home now.

    Sarah Hui - Truly Sarah Ceramics, Pottery

    Born and raised in Oregon City, Oregon, Sarah Hui fell in love with ceramics in college. This love led her to a Bachelors of Science in Art, from the University of Oregon. After working for 10 years as a technical illustrator she is coming back to her love of ceramics, and is living her dream working full-time creating art out of her White Salmon, Washington home in the Columbia River Gorge. Sarah is most excited by the intersection of art and function – how it draws the user into the art – how a beautifully crafted functional piece will be enhanced, itself, by common everyday activities. She creates most of her forms on the potter’s wheel, and then uses carving, painting and sgraffito to manipulate surfaces of functional pieces. It’s her greatest hope to bring joy into the lives of those who interact with her art.

    Kyla Rae - Zen Lotus Design, Jewelry


    Jewels of the Earth woven into works of art....bold, fashionable & beautiful


    I have been designing and fabricating my own jewelry for over 20 years. I truly love to play with natural materials and create works of art to wear daily.


    By selecting stones and materials with great care the final piece shines with quality. When wearing your own carefully crafted, stunning and unique piece, it reflects your own style.

    Living in the heart of the gorge is an amazing playground for my daughter and I to soak up the breathtaking and beautiful nature around us.

    I hope you express yourself in wearing each piece as much as I enjoyed making it.

    Nick Miles - Outrageous Iron Metal Art

    Seeing joy and happiness when people say my work is beautiful is what keeps me going. I was born and raised in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge. I love to create scenes of wildlife and activities around the Gorge and beyond. I've been playing around with plasma cutters since 1985; but in 1999 realized my potential with making art, after being inspired by a piece I admired. I thought to myself, "Wow, where have I been? I can do this"...and the rest is history. I work out of my studio in The Dalles, where I have been since I began making Metal Art in 1999.

    Cathy Mullins - Fabric and Fiber, Baskets and Bowls

    As a child I watched my mother sew, making clothes for me and my brothers and sisters. She had a pretty fancy sewing machine. I didn't actually sew anything myself until I was in Junior High. I made a fun skirt and top. That was in the early '60s. Fast forward about 55 years, I haven't sewn a thing and my sister is an accomplished quilter. She gifted me a Singer sewing machine and encouraged me to find a way to use it. I found fabric-wrapped clothesline baskets! For me this was perfect: not nearly as precise as quilting but creative and fun. I started slowly with a book and some youtube help. That was 9 years ago.


    I was thrilled with all the beautiful fabric and thread and fibers to choose from. So I began to create bowls and baskets. Then I started experimenting with shapes and sizes. It has been an exciting journey, full of joy. My hope is that my creations speak to you, find a place in your home.


    I've taught the technique of making fabric-wrapped baskets all over Oregon and even a few classes in Florida. It's wonderful to share this with others. I live in The Dalles and teach at Columbia Gorge Community College.

    Katie Jo Crawford - Framed Glass Etchings

    Creating has been a passion of mine since I was a child, always curious with the world around me & the beauty we can absorb from it. Considered to be a Jane of all trades, there isn’t a medium I’ll leave unexplored. I’ve always been entranced by the simple elegance of glass, & the way it both captures & reflects the light around us—much like the human spirit. So when my love of a good thrifted find left me with an abundance of vintage frames, I knew I had to find a creative way of utilizing them. Dusting off an old battery-powered etching pen I got back in college, my passion ignited.


    Now with dremel in hand, I use my graphic design skills, love of hand lettering, nature, & mysticism to bring life to the glass panel of each frame; carved with a reflection of my love for the world around me—with an added Midas touch.


    You’ll find a piece of my heart in every offering.
