J.A.W. My name is Jakobi, AKA “j.a.w” and I am a street artist from Auburn. I have been making hearts out of concrete since 2014 and have loved watching them evolve over the years. I have put up around 2000 hearts from Tacoma to the U District. I like walking around the Puget Sound area and exploring while finding interesting spots to stick up my hearts.
I hope my hearts bring a smile to people’s face and a little bit of joy to their lives when they see them.
In addition to being a street artist I am also a graduate from the University of Washington Seattle where I received my Bachelor of Fine Art, a middle school Art Teacher at a local district and a fine art artist who works primarily with wire and concrete.

John Harris - My name is John Harris. I have been making pottery professionally for fifty years. I have used many different firing techniques during my career.
This work is fired in my electric kiln. My clay and glazes are dishwasher safe and lead free. I hope you will enjoy using my pottery.

Margaret Byrd - The breathtaking Pacific Northwest surrounding Seattle is where Margaret Byrd calls home, but her artistic praxis spans the globe with a ‘studio’ built on mobility and designed for her nomadic soul. Graduating from the University of Montana with a BFA in Photography, she discovered her love of mixed media and ephemeral installation along the way and continues to explore both artforms in her studio today. Wanderlust has kept Margaret traveling extensively where vast landscapes and naturally derived colors have inspired her artistic focus and visual aesthetic.

Marit Berg - Marit Berg’s art is the offspring of two very different artistic modes. Her father was a professor of printmaking and her mother was an abstract expressionist painter. Throughout her childhood, she traveled the world with them, attending museums and schools along the way. Even though she was fascinated by the chemistry and machines in the printmaking studio, she primarily thought of herself as a painter. Then, after receiving her MFA, she took a position in the printmaking department of Tacoma Community College.

Perry Shaw - Perry Shaw is a maker based in Seattle, Washington. He creates handmade hollow form vessels, bowls and other wooden products on a lathe in his small studio overlooking Lake Washington. He works almost exclusively with storm or naturally fallen trees and aims to accentuate the natural beauty of the wood with clean, refined forms.

Robert Chism - As an award winning artist his work has been featured in numerous media publications locally and nationwide. From gallery shows to public displays his work has gained a reputation for its originality. With the bold use of color, attention to detail, and creative resolve Robert has the unique ability to create iconic images that are sure to catch your eye.

Tina Christiansen - Tina Christiansen is an architect and a painter of fine art in acrylics and watercolor. In 2010 she created a line of 100% silk art scarves that are printed images of her original paintings. (The silk is imported from China and is colorfast, dry clean only.) She has a master's degree of Architecture from Virginia Tech and a Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida where she also studied art. Her works of silk art are sold exclusively in art museum stores in both Washington and California. Her original acrylic and watercolor paintings are in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.

Trenton Quiocho - “Through Glass, I explore the ways in which I can preserve and reimagine the rich histories, folktales, and Filipino traditions that have been lost through colonization. I’m inspired by the lived experiences of diasporic Filipinos, such as the Sakadas who worked in the sugar cane plantations in Hawai’i, the Manongs who tilled the land in California, the Alaskeros who worked in the salmon canneries in Alaska and Washington, and the motherland from which they came. As a mixed-race Filipino-American glassblower, I’m continuously shifting and expanding my understanding of what it means to be a brown glassblower in a predominately white craft. My identity has taught me how to navigate oppressive systems within the glass community and has taught me how to be innovative in my art practice because of the barriers to opportunities and resources.”

Yoshi Nakagawa - There is great beauty and simplicity in our everyday lives: the respect for working by hand, being enlightened by something repetitive, a childhood memory that resolves the present moment. This is what catches my imagination and propels me towards printmaking. Day-to-day objects and occurrences become metaphors to share my appreciation and convey human experience. My attention to details, textures, and patterns of the natural world inspires me to create. I use relief, etching, monotype, and mixed media, reveling in the methodical processes and acknowledging the gratification I feel when my work goes through the press. I'm a visual artist based in Tacoma, specializing in printmaking for over 20 years. I pulled my first print at the University of Puget Sound and continued my craft in Seattle and Oaxaca, Mexico. I have exhibited and taught workshops in the US, Mexico, Canada, Japan, South Africa, and Honduras.
