The Artist of the Week is our fantastic and creative member and friend Petra Woodworth: @omi_petra_m “I'm a jewelry designer living in Portland, Oregon and have been making jewelry for over 20 years now. It was love at first sight when my daughters took me to a bead shop on that long ago day. Over time I taught myself the techniques I needed and I'm still learning today. I started doing beaded pieces using mostly silver and semi-precious stones. Recently I've become interested in metalsmithing and have taken some classes in fold forming, enameling and cold connections working mainly with copper, brass and silver.

Many of my designs are inspired by "Steampunk" - antique machinery...meets modern day science...meets Victorian romance. Most of my designs are one-of-a-kind and I use a wide variety of materials from sterling silver to found and recycled objects like old keys and dominos.” #theheARTofportland #portlandnow #downtownpdx

My Name is Helene Hughart. I am a long time knitter and love to do custom orders such as personalized heirloom Christmas stockings.  Natural fibers are my favorite medium to work with. I enjoy playing with colors and different designs which can be found on my knitted cards.

🙀🔈 Calling all #catpeople to @artisticportland The Artist of the Week is Adriana Gasperi @gatos.ilimitados.cat.art 😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻 Adriana Gasperi is an international artist referred as “Gatos ilimitados” for her unique and popular portrayal of cats. The artist who is from Venezuela, based in Portland, Oregon, is recognized for personifying the cherished feline and its multi-faceted personalities. Her art combines her lifelong interest in painting and drawing and her proficiency in color, design, and digital art. Sometimes, she adorns the faces and bodies of her subjects with colorful designs inspired by Oriental and Latin-American motifs. While her cats embody wit and charisma, they also communicate social messages the artist feels are important, such as ecology, veganism and animal protection. She owns eight cats, donates a portion of her proceeds to animal shelters, and supports several animal organizations.

Our Artist of the Week is our talented friend and member ​Jennie O'Connor @jennieoco .
“I am an intuitive painter of unique colorful textured abstract art. I usually paint on canvas or watermedia paper with acrylic and watercolor pigment. Many of my paintings incorporate collage, most of which I create myself.
When you look at my work, it's easy to see that I love color and lots of texture. All of my paintings are original but I do have prints and cards available of many of my paintings. Below are a few images of my many original paintings.” #theheARTofportland #portlandnow #downtownpdx

Our Artist of The Week is our super talented member Whitney North, North Paintings! “My name is Whitney North and I paint acrylic on canvas. Those are all the facts of the matter. Why I paint? What inspires me? Those answers are far more vague…
I can conclude that I paint what I paint because that is what I have in me to paint; and the images that lurk behind my eyes desire to come out into the light. Sometimes a simple suggestion for a new subject matter can spark a blazing fire of creativity inside me, sometimes I just feel like challenging myself and trying something new, other times I do the same subject over and over again in different colors, patterns or sizes because I enjoy improving upon my previous attempts. That is the truth in the simplest terms that I can describe them in.
I like to work on a large scale because I feel that it gives me more space for expression. Think of my general aversion to smaller canvases as creative claustrophobia. I use acrylic paint because I don’t enjoy waiting for oil paints to dry and because I dislike the lucidity of water colors.
I prefer not to blend my colors, instead using areas of flat color to add to the simplicity of the images I create. To my way of thinking, if you can tell it’s supposed to be a tree then it’s a tree.
As for “how to appreciate my work”, “how to look at my work”, or “how I hope others will see my work” I will leave that up to the viewer. I simply hope that the work that I create will evoke a fraction of the emotional response in others that creating it brings to me.” #theheARTofportland #portlandnow #downtownpdx
