Redd Walitzki

"A daydream of beautiful aberrations
that evoke themes of neoteny, desire for perfection
and the abject/beautiful dynamic.
Pattern shaping beautiful surfaces. Sweet disguising sharpness.
Superficial, superflat, superfabulous. All art is at once surface and symbol.
Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.
Ethereal figures, biological oddities, 
and strange monsters join together
and invite you into a high-fashion wonderland
of the amazing and grotesque.“

Redd has worked with multiple genres of the arts,
ranging from painting, sewing, digital media, video animation,
photography, and ball-jointed-doll faceups to name a few.
She graduated from Cornish College of the Arts in 2007.
She is a working artist originally from Germany,
now living in Pioneer Square (Seattle’s artist district). She can usually be found in her studio painting to BBC Documentaries, playing with her pet opossum, or chasing down the next strange adventure.

Amy Weber

Amy Webers' fantastical whimsy
Amy Weber is a Red Raven Gallery co-op member and a popular local artist that paints imagination. Hers is full of creatures and hybrids of Robots and animals she loves. Her finely detailed and colorful creations are soulful and sweet and seem to come from dreamscapes.....
Amy earned her B.F.A. degree in Design/Illustration from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle; and an M.F.A. in Illustration from Syracuse University in New York. She has worked as a fine artist and freelance designer since 1992 and her work is sold here in the states and abroad as she has a wide ranging fan base. She lives on the water in a rural area of the Pacific Northwest in what her friends describe as "the middle of nowhere" with two blue heelers, three cats and a writer-in a land of real mountains, tall trees and those that hug them, serious coffee, rain, and the salty smell of the sea. Amy attempts to make a living with her art and she strives to create a lot of work that will have a positive effect on this home we call Earth.
