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.
