                                                                 Camille Scheewe Radich

I feel so grateful to have grown up in a creative, artistic family. My mother Sue is a professional artist and I learned from her that with the right tools and guidance anyone can paint and create. My sister Kim and I have enjoyed many a painting and creating adventures together through the years. Creating together is the one thing that can bring all ages to the same table.
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 have a BFA in painting from Pacific Northwest College of Art, PNCA. Type and Calligraphy are another love of mine. I studied calligraphy at Oregon School of Arts and Crafts.

I have spent years photo styling, photographing and designing books and book covers in our family Business, Scheewe Publications Inc. I love what I do. I am a true blue Oregonian, my creative 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. Join me and have some fun creating.

                                             Christine Trexel

Books have been an integral part of Christine Trexel’s life since early childhood. She grew up on a farm in southeastern Colorado and spent many happy hours lost inside the pages of a book. She firmly believes a day without time set aside for reading is an incomplete day. As an adult she began her journey into creating her own books, which led to boxes, and then to making paper while living in Portland, Oregon. She has been fortunate to have taken a wide variety of classes at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts as well as with internationally known local artists in book binding and paper making.

Christine lived in Panama for seven years where she grew, harvested and processed plants from her garden to make paper for the books and boxes she creates. The wealth of vegetation fostered experimentation and a great deal of learning.
Since returning to the PNW and settling in the vibrant arts community of Astoria, Oregon Christine has had the opportunity to show her work at Imogen Gallery in Astoria, Fairweather Gallery in Seaside, Imprint Gallery in Cannon Beach, Cannon Beach Art Gallery and in juried shows in Canon Beach Art Gallery in Canon Beach, Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts, and 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland.

After 17 years as a studio portrait photographer, Ray turned to fine art photography, eventually teaching himself the art of platinum printing and, later, wetplate collodion, and polymer plate gravure. Fascinated by both the science and the art of photography and printmaking, Ray is an engaging and respected photo instructor throughout the Pacific Northwest. Ray’s photographs are internationally collected, and his work has been exhibited across the United States, and in France, Germany, and Scotland.

                                                Drenda Duff

Drenda Duff regards figurative art, composed and arranged in natural surroundings, as a favorite subject for her drawings and paintings. She is interested in still life and landscape as well. She enjoys working in oil, pastel, and watercolor. In all subjects there is significant deliberation on the use of light, which communicates mood or presence in her work. In addition, Drenda considers studying artists and their work, both contemporary and from the past, as pivotal to her own growth and learning process. Her study of art history is employed not only as an instructive tool but also to stimulate her own ideas and creative process.
Drenda and her husband David have lived in Cannon Beach for 25 years.

In 2005 Drenda took a hiatus from her artwork to study at Portland State University, receiving her BA in Art/Art History. Currently she paints full time in her home art studio. In Cannon Beach, her work has shown at Windridge Gallery, Bronze Coast Gallery, Cannon Beach Gallery, and at the Chamber Stormy Weather Arts Festivals. She currently sells her artwork at “Drenda Duff Fine Art.”

Kalispell, Montana and Arch Cape, Oregon

Linda Christensen is an artist with a background in watercolor, woodcarving, fiber arts, and mixed media. She brings her varied skills and explorative art techniques now to the world of polymer clay.

Artist Linda Christensen has been honored in past years with acceptance into several international shows. Linda’s artwork has been featured in “100 Sacred Visions” in Payerbach, Austria. In 2003, her painting “Crops of People” was included in “Brave Destiny”, the largest showing of living surrealist artists in Brooklyn, NY.

                                             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.
