Susan Elliott is a mixed media artist originally from Terre Haute, Indiana. With a BA in graphic design and advertising from the University of North Florida, her expertise in the visual realm helped her find her way back into drawing and painting.
She loves combining cute, a bit strange, and vintage, so she draws beautiful skeleton characters that are one-of-a-kind creations with a whimsical twist. Her pure amazement and admiration for the animal kingdom are expressed through her nature series.
Elliott is passionate about originality, aesthetics, and approaching each creation from her core. She is inspired by everyday life and the things that emerge from it influence her work. As a mixed media artist, her favorite mediums are acrylic paint, ink, pen, and pencil. She loves the texture that is created in combining these mediums and the beauty that forms from different methods. Ultimately, her mission is to deliver a powerful artistic experience through her work that drives desire, excitement, happiness, and creativity in others.
Melinda Hurst Frye is a lens-based artist, working in themes of implied environments and shared experiences within the still life aesthetic. Her current work, which illustrates the mystery and activity of subterranean ecosystems, was featured on Humble Arts Foundation and WIRED photo and may be seen in various upcoming solo and group exhibitions throughout the Northwest.
Melinda Hurst Frye holds an MFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design and is a dedicated member of the Society for Photographic Education. Hurst Frye teaches photography at the Art Institute of Seattle, holds occasional workshops, and is an artist member of CORE gallery in Seattle. Melinda may be found this winter on sabbatical, digging holes and making new work.
