Hope Bots

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Portland artist Gary Hirsch has added a new Bot to his line up of magical talismen. The Hope Bot proudly sports a pink hat and is here to help when you feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the events around you.

Gary and Tilde have joined forces to donate all the dollars raised from the sale of these bots to the ACLU. In these overwhelming times, this little bot is here to help when you start to feel paralyzed. Keep it by your side and it will fill you with hope and optimism. Take your Bot with you for hope everywhere you go.

Each Bot is unique, costs $14 and comes in a box with a booklet explaining its powers. The Hope Bot is not available on our website due to its unique characteristics. You can email us at info@tildeshop.com, call us at 503-234-9600 or come in to choose the right bot for you!

Julianna Swaney Illustration

Posted by Julie Beckett on

Julianna Swaney is an artist and illustrator living in the Pacific Northwest. She finds inspiration in fairy and folk tales, as well as animals, classical music, and houseplants. She creates her drawings and illustrations with pencil, watercolor, and gouache.

Each piece invites the viewer into the world of Julianna's imagination, which seems like a fascinating (and often adorable) place to live.

Michele Maule

Michele Maule is an illustrator, painter, and printmaker.  While her work covers a variety of subjects, her whimsical paintings of animals are some of our favorites.

Michele lives right here in Portland, and she also depicts some of Portland's best views:

And some of our most beautiful landmarks:

We carry a wide variety of Michele's prints, and this sweet cat makes us smile every time we look at it.

Rachel Austin

Posted by Julie Beckett on

 

We love Rachel! Her original paintings have been featured in our shop for years and have become a Portland collectible for many that visit Sellwood.

To create these lovely paintings Rachel begins with a map and then covers it with an acrylic medium, oil paint and ink all layered upon a wooden box frame. On top of the map they may feature paper airplanes, birds, cats, and even an occasional dog.

Rachel has also done more abstract paintings of poppies and lanterns.  We have a great selection of prints from these two series in the shop.

With maps, dogs, or flowers, Rachel's paintings can add a pop of cheer to any room.

Kiersten Crowley Jewelry

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This lovely locally made jewelry line features organic shapes in brass, silver and oxidized sterling silver.
Kiersten's jewelry often features tiny details of silver droplets that mix among delicate chains and more earthy brass elements.
These necklaces, earrings and cuffs play perfectly for those of us that like wear our jewelry with denim or a fancy vintage skirt.
