Jeni Lee's "Valleyscapes"

Posted by Debbe Hamada on

Join us Sunday, June 9th from 2 - 4:00pm for the opening reception of local artist Jeni Lee's show Valleyscapes: Paintings Celebrating the Willamette Valley. 


"I work primarily from memory and imagination, allowing the experience and sensations of nature to emerge as I paint. With washes and glazes of paint and water, I continually build and alter the painting, carving out forms and layering light to evoke mood and atmosphere.
The Willamette Valley, with its dramatic skies and endless folds of earth and water, has always been a strong influence on my work, especially in the spring, when the fresh color and light of the season inspires much growth and possibility."


Portland, Oregon artist Jeni Lee is known for her atmospheric paintings of the lush Northwest landscape. Each eartwork is created with layers of acrylic paint, rain and collected, recycled rainwater. This process of engaging with the rain invites unique works through chance and timing, each with patterns and reflections of color and light.


We look forward to seeing you at the opening reception on June 9th or come visit us anytime at the store, Jeni's work will be up on our walls until July 25th.

Jeni Lee

Posted by Julie Beckett on

This Portland based visual artist creates serene emotive works using paint and rainwater.  For this series, Jeni carried the originals in and out of the rain as she built up the layers of color.

Each original has now been turned into a limited edition giclee print, numbered and signed by the artist.

In this second series, Jeni used rainwater collected at her studio to mix the paints.

We love the colors and the mood these ethereal pictures create.

All Across Africa

Posted by Julie Beckett on

These fair trade baskets and trivets are made in Rwanda by artisans using traditional techniques. The fair trade biz, All Across Africa, has a mission to improve and empower the lives of rural and struggling people across Africa. We love the colors and the graphic patterns in these beautiful handmade pieces. They are both modern and traditional in appeal. We'd put these in every room of our home.

Made in Los Angeles from leather and pure merino wool felt, these handbags are both classic and modern.

 We love the graphic color blocking, as well as the durable natural materials.

In addition to the totes above with the leather handles, we've brought in this all felt style with adjustable webbing straps.

Orla Kiely Poppy Cat Print Handbags

Posted by Julie Beckett on

 

 

In her latest collection, Orla Kiely has combined two of our favorite things-handbags and cats!

 

 

 

Orla is well known for her graphic depictions of flowers and stems.  This print includes a subtle poppy form blended together with the cheerful kitties.

These bags come in two colors, persimmon and blue.  We've brought in a selection of shapes, including two backpack sizes, the zip handbag, and of course the classic crossbody midi sling.
