                                             Alexandra Becker-Black

Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Alexandra has been creating art all of her life. Formally trained in Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design, Alexandra’s relationship with watercolors started with an odd step when she was forced to choose a new medium after developing an allergic reaction to oil paints. Within weeks of first painting with watercolors, Alexandra found her medium and her new voice. Years later the majority of her technique is still self-taught through her natural exploration of the paint and its applications. Long before a paintbrush ever touched her hand, drawing was Alexandra’s original medium. She continues to draw today, exploring new techniques and concepts by pushing the boundaries between realism and dream-scapes.

Alexandra lives in Portland, Oregon where she enjoys the city’s beautiful scenery, and relaxed culture. She is a member of the Falcon Art Community, and when not in her studio she can be found cooking and practicing yoga.

I paint because I have to…it’s right up there with food and water for me – a prayer, a meditation and always an adventure!  Capturing moments in my life that touch me is a joy and I hope that reaches my viewers in a memorable way.”

Sharon’s fascination with the many moods, power, sounds and mystery of the sea is evident in her work.  Several of her paintings inspired Author Sarel Venter to write stories about them and can be enjoyed on her website.   Her deepest loves though are her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and people in general, and her desire to share their stories with oils on canvas is her goal.

In the past, paintings of her grandchildren were used in Portland Oregon Street of Dreams and West Linn Parade of Homes.  “The Price of Freedom”, a tribute to her son’s military service, was published in the 2015 Art Edition of Rain.

This is her fourth year participating in Plein Air and More, Stormy Weather Art Festival and Spring Unveiling in Cannon Beach OR, and she has been featured in the local newspaper regarding these events. Her award-winning paintings are in collections throughout the United States, Switzerland and Italy.

                                                          Margaret Fort Terrall

I have lived in Portland my entire life. I went to Wilson High School and the University of Oregon where I received a degree in Art Education and continued on at Lewis & Clark to receive a Masters in Art Ed. I have taught middle school and high school art, illustration at Portland Community College, drawing at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology and painting at the Multnomah Art Center. I now hold private and group classes in my home studio. I am represented by the Portland Art Museum Rental Sales Gallery. I am a member of a women’s art guild known as LOCAL 14, in which we put on an annual show at the World Forestry Center in Portland. I have participated in Portland Open Studios, The Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, The Sitka Invitational Art Show and I am a member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon.

My inspiration for my paintings comes from my garden and studio, the beauty of Oregon, the Pacific Northwest and from travels locally and abroad. Subject matter ranges from the still life, landscapes, cityscapes or people and lately more abstract painting. I combine acrylic paint with pencil, crayon, ink and collage materials and with the use of rubbing alcohol, I scrape and scratch into the paint. I also use brayers, stamping, stenciling and monotype techniques. I love rich and bold color, relationships and contrasts of shapes, line and textures. I love layering color upon color with a dry brush technique and seeing the combination of several colors show through.

I have prints available of all my paintings on my gallery website: margaretterrall.com

I feel so grateful to have grown up in a creative, artist family
From an early age I was inspired and exposed to art and painting by my talented mother Sue,
a professional artist and painting instructor.  I grew up learning and knowing that with the
right tools and guidance anyone can paint and create.

Acrylics and mixed media are my favorite mediums.  I am inspired to paint a variety of subjects, loose florals, birds, abstracts with layers of natural elements and also creating mixed media pieces using collage & stencil elements. I studied painting in College and graduated with a BFA in painting from Pacific Northwest College of Art, PNCA. Post graduation I exhibited my work at a local gallery in Portland. Type and Calligraphy are another love of mine.  I studied calligraphy at Oregon School of Arts and Crafts.  I went on to teach Calligraphy and how to see and create letter forms.

For my day job I work in our family business, Scheewe Publications Inc., we publish instructional painting books. I have spent years photo styling, photographing and designing books and book covers.  I love what I do. I am a true blue Oregonian, my husband, cat and I live in Portland.
I believe we are all artists, we are all creative, sometimes we just need a little nudge to begin the adventure.
